If you haven’t seen the first video make sure you check that out and show you some ideas and even go over some gear that might help when creating a youtube short. But for the most part i got the clips on my phone and it’s ready to be edited, so let’s open up, adobe rush and let’s start and input our footage. Once you open up adobe rush, you’re just going to create a new project and then we’re going to import from videos unless you’re using photos and i’m going to import. The clips that i will be using for my youtube short now it’s important to know that if your clips are kind of all over the place chronologically, just make sure you click the clips in the order you want to edit them in, and so the first clip That i definitely want is this one on the top right and then this one on the bottom and then the next one. Is this one? The next one is this one, and then the fifth clip is this one and then i’m just going to call this short and then hit create and then it’s going to import the clips to my timeline now, depending on the type of short you did, you might Want to keep the audio that is on the actual video file for me, i want to remove it completely because i’m going to put music instead, you can also record a voiceover and kind of dub, an audio track over the entire short as well.
So i like to expand my timeline, so i can kind of see everything so by clicking this icon on the bottom. Left. It’Ll show that and then i can easily mute the audio with a click of a button now i’m going to take the time to trim down all the fluff and also organize the clips in the place. I want them, and so, if you need to trim down anything, you can simply put the curse. The blue cursor, where you want it tap on the clip, hit, split and that’s, just a good way that you can trim the video and then, if you want to move around a clip or put something in between a clip, you can simply hold down and then Move that clip where you’d like to and then it’ll lock into place and just a good button to know about as you go about this, if you make any mistakes, simply hit this back arrow on the top of your screen and then you’ll undo. What you just did as far as you need it to do two weeks later, all right so to edit down that video down to its core took me about three to four minutes or so which isn’t terrible, but as you’ll use it, you will become more proficient At it amen, but the next step is to now add your assets, things like text, things like music or, like i mentioned before, voiceovers and the way you can add assets.
Is this blue button on the bottom left of your screen and, as you can see, you can see everything that you’re able to do so i’m, just going to add the song that i want i’m going to add it from my media because i saved it onto My phone so i’m just going to go to my files, hit import files and then this clip on the top left is what i want to bring in and then once it’s in there now i’m ready to kind of just see where i want it to play. Yay hey anyway, i want that drop to hit at a certain point and so i’m just going to find that drop with the audio wave file, which i believe is right here then i’m going to split it and then hit delete and i’m going to drag that To where i want the big aha to take place so let’s see how this looks. Applause so now, it’s time to add text. So the way to add text to your video is to hit the graphics tab at the bottom hit. Add graphic – and i found that once you click on titles, if you just search the word basic, then you’re just going to get very basic titles and i’m just going to select the second one basic default, title hit, add and then uh just add this title to The front end of the video and then any and all editing you need to do to the text itself.
You can do at the bottom, and so, if you need to change the font, you totally can i’m just going to go to helvetica new uh let’s, see where they got bold, italic and then i’m going to. I want this to actually read where glasses question mark and then and then, if you need to move the position of that, you can simply tap the screen, make sure you’re selected on the timeline and then you can move it where you want it to be uh. Something like that looks good, and then you would just repeat this process and i’m gon na do this for every tip in the video all right. So once you add the text and your video and you’re ready to go it’s time to export and so we’re just going to hit the send button on the top of the phone and then hit export at 1080p um and then the app will then export the Video and then you can upload it to youtube now when it comes to adding the short on youtube, simply hit the plus button in the app and then hit upload, obviously make sure you got wi fi connected and then upload your short uh to your channel.
