Video editing is a popular pastime for many, and for the novices out there it's steadily becoming more accessible. Videohance is certainly one of the most accessible apps that I've used in recent times. It'll be ideal for creating videos to share amongst many different social networks.
Starting out, Videohance allows users to choose between two aspect ratios, with one working best for Instagram while the other works best for mostly everything else. The fact it explains why such a choice is important is a good first sign for an app all about making such a process simple.
Taking users through the process step by step, Videohance is a breeze to use and reasonably speedy too. Colors can be adjusted for the video, encompassing the usual supply of saturation, brightness, exposure, and contrast, as well as some convenient presets. Such presets can sometimes be a bit gimmicky but here it's a pretty sound bunch, proving ideal for those users who want to see results particularly quickly.
Elsewhere, it's possible to apply a series of overlays such as blur effects, gradients, or light leaks, each being appropriate for different scenarios. Similarly, frames and adjustments to the audio track are just as easily applied. There's the option of joining together a number of clips too, which works particularly well when creating a montage for an Instagram video, for instance.
It's impressive that Videohance manages to be both powerful yet still feel very simple to use. That's a combination that isn't always achieved but this is an app that makes it look easy. Aimed at the social networking side of things, right down to the ability to share via WhatsApp as well as the usual bunch of networks, Videohance is sure to be an ideal addition to many people's arsenal. It's certainly swayed me further towards the simplicity of video editing and sharing.
