Why Use A Video Editor
Adding content on Safe Worlds TV revolves around video content – unlike websites and blogs that are dominant on the www, that are text based. Video and Television are the ultimate format for connecting with your audience so it is important to know how to create this type of content in a professional way to maximize audience engagement.
Fortunately there are a number of very impressive video editing programs available today that make video creation an absolute breeze. Even Hollywood productions have used these same consumer video editor products because of their immense functionality and ease of use. Your choice of software will depend on the type of PC you use and the level of complexity that you require to create your video content.

How to choose your video editor
This is very much a personal choice but we recommend that you decide which product either suits your needs best or is best matched to your computer. If you intend to replace your PC anyway – then we recommend buying one with an Intel i5 or i7 processor because these programs will run better on a quad core processor than single or dual core. If you use a Mac then you may find that a Roxio video editor product is the best choice for you.
Additional Software options
If you have a Mac computer and wish to use one of the Pc based Video Editor products, then you can also install VMware Fusion 5 so that Windows will run on your Mac PC which may allow you to use a windows video editor.
