Video Creation and Editing Tools

Content XLerator enables you to create and send of video (+more) everywhere at once.

By “creation,” we mean the ability to simply and easily record a video — from within the system — using a webcam, tablet or smartphone.

With the explosion of online video, there are many other tools available to create a video — that can be uploaded to Content XLerator. Once uploaded, you can take advantage of all the other features and functionality of the Content XLerator system.

What follows is an overview of the types of video creation (recording, editing, authoring) tools that are available.

Video Recording

Instead of using the web recorder available from within the Content XLerator system, you can use your computer’s webcam software, the video camera on a tablet/smartphone or a standalone camera. Also, for tablets and smartphones, there are a number of apps that add advanced video camera features (FiLMiC Pro, Camera+, ProCamera 8, MoviePro, Kinematic).

Video Editing

Once you have a video recorded, you may want to edit it (clip front or back ends, stitch together clips, add music or voiceover, etc) before uploading it to Content XLerator. Given the wide range of video editors available and people’s personal preferences for video editors, we’ve decided to not include this functionality within Content XLerator.

Therefore, if you want to use an edited video within Content XLerator, you would record the video using a video recording device (see above) and then edit it on your computer, tablet or smartphone. Then you would take the edited video and upload it to Content XLerator (from your computer, tablet or smartphone).
