About This Course

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.

    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.

  4. Excellent


    I had just begun using Shotcut but needed some guidance and Bryan’s course really clarified things for me. It was especially helpful that Bryan suggested settings for rendering videos. His preferences, whether one uses it or not, is great base. Highly recommend taking this course. Thank you, Bryan and Skill Success!

    I you are even thinking about video editing - start here


    This was a great blend of editing concepts and hands-on demos of a free video editing tool.

    I would have saved myself many hours of trial-and-error editing frustration if I had taken this course BEFORE I started doing video editing. Thanks Bryan.
