What People Are Asking…

What app makes your videos look vintage?

There are many apps that do this. A lot of people like True VHS for the tape look, but I like using Rarevision VHS for that. If you want a movie film look--you could try the 8mm app.

What's the best video editing app?

The best one is the one that's easiest for you to use, but Adobe Premiere Pro and Apple Final Cut Pro are good ones to learn and use.
