If you want to create videos with snappy effects such as slow motion, storyboards, or even picture in picture, then VivaVideo allows you to do so with very few editing skills. It´s one of the leanest and most user friendly apps for video editing for Android available right now.
First you pick your clip, which can be taken from an existing gallery or filmed in-app. Once set, you can easily edit the length of the clip from its start and end points, and change the frame size and position to focus on a desired point. After you have set your raw footage, you can apply a range of filters, text, stickers, FX, music, dubbing, and intro/outro sections to give the final video a professional touch.
Want to be even fancier? The picture in picture template allows you to set two videos to run simultaneously. While lining these up is a little tricky (as both must be filmed separately), it can create some interesting short clips.
It is also possible to create short video montages of your photos. After picking images from your gallery, VivaVideo links them together as a video by automatically applying transitions and providing a host of editable tweaks such as stickers and captions.
Once your video is ready for the world, you can easily share it to any one of VivaVideo's supported social networks (including Facebook and WhatsApp), or save it to your phone to send anywhere else you fancy. It's an interesting alternative to KineMaster and Dubsmash.
VivaVideo is a playful and accessible little package that is easy for me to recommend - even if the free version watermarks all of your videos and limits them to five minutes.
