Video editing will one day come in handy for a dropshipper or anybody who has an online business.

In many cases, photography will not make the cut anymore as far as product promotion is concerned. And not just because of YouTube, but because videos are better marketing materials than still images.

While your phone camera is a great tool for starters, it does not have the same functionalities the professional video editors offer.

My three recommendations are:

  • Camtasia
  • ViddyOze
  • ActivePresenter

Camtasia

Camtasia is one of the premiere choices of video artists and YouTubers. It is equipped with a screencast recorder, audio recorder, and video editing software.

What’s in it for you?

  • Free trial available
  • Multiple tools such as zoom, pan, webcam and screen recording
  • Use transition effects in your videos
  • Add titles, annotations and call outs
  • Create videos with music background

ViddyOze

ViddyOze is a 3D video tool that is great for creating animated videos. It is not a great tool for screencast and tutorials.

Use ViddyOze to create advertisements for your products, or if you want a software that can give you full animation in as little as three clicks.
