Have you ever wanted to learn how to edit video like the pros do? If you’re a beginner and you’re not all that familiar with different editing software, what editing video actually entails, and if you’ll like it or not, it might not be the best idea to spend a lot of money on an expensive software.

Shotcut is the best free video editing software out there. It’s what I used to get started and build my Content Creation Business. So, don’t let anyone tell you that you need to buy a software when you’re first getting started. That’s simply not true.

It’ll take you through all the basics you need to know to get started to all the most advanced things you can do with the software.

    Great course with very useful tips.


    Very good course for beginners. It made me want to know a bit more about a more complex course on video editing.

    I don’t have an idea about video editing and I have learned great deals in this course. It was an amazing tutorial. The course is well designed and itself is a useful demonstration of the concepts and techniques.

    Great Beginner Class


    My husband and I are starting a YouTube channel with our meat smoking adventures, I needed to learn how to edit quickly. I’ve messed with “free” video editing software before, but honestly had no idea what I was doing and ended up frustrated. Bryan did a fantastic job covering the basics, and made it super easy to follow and understand. The courses are short, so there’s no getting overwhelmed with a bunch of stuff that you’re not ready for, but they’re long enough that you can grasp the basic concepts. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to learn basic video editing. Two thumbs up.

    Great Beginner Editing Course


    I’m new to video editing, so I found this perfect. I had just recently downloaded Shotcut before finding this course and I was looking up YouTube tutorials, which I seemed to get, but when trying to use it on Shotcut, I failed to remember how it was supposed to be done. With this course for beginners like me, I definitely remember every step and honestly it’s all very simple once you understand how to do it and where to go on Shotcut or any other editing software to use it. This course definitely covers the basic of editing like cutting videos, layering, audio and video filters, and b roll. Very useful tips. I feel confident now on how to do basic editing, not just on Shotcut, but in general. Like he mentioned, once you know the basics, you can learn and add new things to your “arsenal” later. Great beginner editing course. I highly recommend it.
