A few more features to keep in mind while deciding the video editor would be as follows.

Easy to Use

Always select software that is easy to understand and use. This is essential for you to work smoothly. Whatever you do, get a paid video editing app and make sure you understand its nuances.

Robust

Ensure that the software you finally select is robust and compatible with your hardware. A robust software will not hang upon carrying out multiple tasks at once. Some softwares, although easy to use, often give up when the users need to run multiple commands at once.

Online Support

If you are venturing into the YouTube world for the first time, it is highly recommended to select a video editor that has quick and strong online support. This is essential as, in the initial months, you may encounter issues while using the software. The online support will ensure you sail smoothly despite the inexperience.

Keyboard Shortcuts

Yes, we are still discussing video editing hacks, and yes, keyboard shortcuts are essential. Most of us edit videos on our laptops, and trying to make a selection with a touchpad might not be the easiest thing. They also make life easier for you by shaving off a few seconds on some of the most repetitive video editing tasks.

There are tons of keyboard shortcut cheat sheets out there to help you master the essential video editing shortcuts. However, you can always create some shortcuts that suit you best.

Template

A template should be your starting point. It will not only help you visualize your content but will also provide a sense of clarity on whether or not your audience will like it. Most video editors allow users to either modify pre-made templates or create their own from scratch.

Once you have the desired template, you are now free to select the script and give your video a headline. Some video editors also allow you to add a URL to your uploaded content and fetch the data on the scraper for you. You can also use media files to resonate with the video you are looking to make.

Trimming

YouTubers are not professional actors. Even professional actors take several cuts to get that perfect scene. So, do not panic if you cannot make it in the first take. Keep shooting and trim the scenes later.

Trimming is the most basic feature of video editing.

Trimming is the basic feature which almost all video editors allow, even the free ones. However, the accuracy in trimming is what matters, and you will only get that in good video editors.

Music

Is it even a good video if it does not have resonating music in it? No, right? Music adds life to the video. Most new YouTubers fail to justify their efforts by the music they add to their videos.

It is advisable to give equal importance to the audio of your video. If your video has no dialogues, you should add music to the video, which goes with its theme. You can find several subscriptions offering royalty-free music for your needs. If you want to be on the next level, pay, and you will get the best audio available in the market.

Dimensions

Different social media platforms support different dimensions. While Facebook, TikTok, and YouTube support 1920 pixels x 1080 pixels, Messenger, Instagram Stories, and Snapchat support 1080 pixels x 1920 pixels. After having gone through the hassle of creating and editing the video, you do not want your viewers to be unable to watch it properly.

Make sure you understand the platform you want to publish your content on. If you are aiming at multiple platforms, go back to your video editor and crop the video according to the platform. It is that simple!

Resolution

Most viewers consume content on mobile phones or tablets. Therefore, the video need not be 8K resolution. However, understanding the audience and delivering accordingly is strongly recommended. Keep in mind the scope for quality impairment while compressing the video. Also, do not utilize free editing software, or you’ll have to compromise with the visual quality.

We are firm believers in first impressions being the last impressions. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that you create an invite, which is as good as your video. Free invitation maker software makes this possible.

Two United Arab Emirates (UAE)-based Indian expats started free online coaching for children who have dropped out of after-school private tuition because of the coronavirus pandemic, Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) news reported.

Simran Kanal and Mehak Lalchandani, who have been best-friends from their Dubai school days, were running their newly-founded ‘#PandemicCamp’ to provide free online coaching for CBSE students whose parents can no longer afford private tutors, reports Gulf News.

Pandemic Camp is offering free Zoom lessons in English, Maths and Hindi for grades one to five, taught by the two former CBSE students Kanal and Lalchandani, both 2014 alumni of The Millennium School in Dubai.

“We’re both very compassionate, both as students and as teachers. We came across parents who have had to withdraw their children from private tuition, so this camp is a way we wanted to give back to society,” said Kanal, a freelance journalist and writer who works for an online marketplace platform.

Lalchandani, a finance degree holder, said: “Since we’re very familiar with the CBSE curriculum, that is why we chose CBSE and are catering to primary school grades.”

She said the sudden switch to distance learning has not been easy for students, teachers and parents.

“In a classroom, you have 30 students and you have to personally go to a student and see what they’re doing in their book. But when you have 30 students online, then it’s very difficult for that one-on-one help,” Gulf news quoted Lalchandani as saying.

Kanal said compared to her school days, students today in grade four or five have “tremendous assignments” that often need close help by parents, who themselves have to learn new digital skills. (IANS)

83% Online Users Think Their Own, Weak Passwords: Cybersecurity Researchers

Passwords should be hard to crack and confidential

Highlighting the need for storing passwords, cybersecurity researchers have found that that 83 per cent of online users are thinking up their own, weak passwords, while 54 per cent say they are unaware about how to check if any of their credentials have already been leaked.

Passwords are the most common method of authentication, but they only work if they are hard to crack and confidential.

With an increasing number of apps requiring them, it can be hard to come up with new ideas for complex passwords and keep them all in your mind � especially when users may be required to change their passwords regularly, according to a Kaspersky report.

“In addition to this challenge of creativity for users, it’s becoming more vital to store passwords securely and look out for possible instances when these credentials could be leaked,” said the report.

According to the findings, 55 per cent of users claim they remember all of their passwords – which can be difficult if security requirements such as password complexity and uniqueness are to be satisfied.

One in five (19 per cent) keep them written in a file or document stored on their computer, while 18 per cent use the browsers on their computers, smartphones, or tablets to store their passwords.

“Consumers can monitor the spread of personal data, including which passwords might have been leaked. And this is not only for the sake of “just being aware”; it also allows individuals to take the right action to minimize any invasion of privacy,” said Marina Titova, Head of Consumer Product Marketing at Kaspersky.

There are some ways to check if your password has been leaked.

For instance, services such as �Have I Been Pwned?’ maintain a database where users can check if their passwords have been included in public leaks or data breaches without visiting the sketchier parts of the web.

“Minimise the number of people you share account login information with and never leave passwords where others might find them � be it on paper or on a device. Keeping them on sticky notes or a pad might be tempting, but it will also be just as easy for others to access things you don’t want them to,” said the researchers.

Use strong and robust passwords generated by a reliable security solution, said Kaspersky. (IANS)

While the current situation has imposed social restrictions, caused financial uncertainty, increased stress and anxiety, it has also provided couples with extra time to spend together, helping them bond better. Capturing the moments of togetherness and companionship, W released a shot-at-home music video showcasing how the lockdown has brought many men and women closer.

The overarching theme of the video is ‘W is M, M is W’, representing Men and Women who are working together, having fun together, and empowering each other along the way. Conceptualized by Ogilvy India, the video captures how the lockdown has blurred gender lines, as men and women have found new ways to bond together by partaking in the others’ work and making it theirs. With the larger goal of surviving the unprecedented crisis, the video celebrates the loving, caring, and understanding efforts from both men and women towards shared learning and growing love and mutual respect.

The video resonates with the idea of equal stake and equal responsibilities where both parties are stepping up to fulfil daily commitments together and enabling each other.

“Today, despite all the office work at home, couples have found time and new ways to bond together, triggering a transformation where men and women are sharing and owning daily responsibilities equally. By donning each other’s hats, couples have blurred the gender lines, fostering greater understanding and mutual respect between each other.

The W is M and M is W is all about these endearing stories of companionship. With W always resonating with the modern women and rooting for progressive culture, we feel the companionship depicted in the video is a celebration in itself,” Anant Daga, Managing Director, TCNS Clothing Co. Ltd. said.

Ritu Sharda, Chief Creative Officer, Ogilvy India (North) said, “As life turned upside down, and we found ourselves huddled together at home, we realised something beautiful that MEN & WOMEN may be different but are somewhere like two sides of the same coin. Staying in has made us realize that our roles as homemakers were not sacrosanct and when situations demanded we could step into each other’s shoes effortlessly. This role reversal has made us see each other in a new light of respect and admiration. And this is what W’s latest film W is M is all about, a tale of togetherness and companionship that helped many wade through this time with a smile on their face. Because M is W and W is M”. (IANS)
