carry with you your phone or your tablet after testing a huge range of apps my recommendations were CyberLink PowerDirector and kinemaster in this video we're going to dive deeper into CyberLink PowerDirector on android we're gonna run through exactly how to edit your videos and get great results using

the app now this video isn't a full review and it's also not gonna run through every feature and every tool that's available in the app we're gonna be running through a full editing process end to end covering everything you need to know to get editing fast with great

results using your Android device will have a similar video coming up soon for kinemaster on Android and I'll put a link in the cards okay before we jump in we're gonna be following through the primal video method which is the most efficient editing process to eliminate any rework

or wasted time while you're editing your videos we did a video on this a while back if you haven't seen it you can download the PDF here to help you with your videos okay so in PowerDirector the first thing to do is to click the big button in

the middle create a new project then give your project a name so straight out it takes you to the import video screen so we'll just hit the back button to get back out of that so this is the overall interface for CyberLink PowerDirector obviously got our timeline at

the bottom on the right hand side we've got our settings our share and our play button there's also the undo button there as well and on the Left we've got our main feature buttons so we've got our import audio and video button we've got our layers button which

is where we can import audio video text on a separate layer to our primary video layer and we've got some effects in there as well okay so to start off we'll import our main video footage so we'll select the import media button make sure we've got video select

at the top and navigate through to find the video files that you want to import just a matter of selecting them and hitting the plus to drop it down to your timeline now at this point we're only importing our primary footage not any additional graphics or b-roll footage

we'll get to that in a minute then you just need to back back out back to the timeline hitting the back button so now that our footage is down in the timeline the first step is to actually do a scan or a first pass of your footage and

remove anything that you absolutely don't want to have in your end video so to remove all the extra footage at the start of our clip we just tap on the clip and we get a green handle that pops up there's just a matter of clicking and dragging that

handle to the right so that our video file starts where we want it this is a matter of moving it back and forth to get it in the right spot and then we'll do exactly the same at the end of the clip we'll remove all the extra stuff

beyond where we want the video to finish so we just tap on the clip and we slide that green handle or green marker back to where we want the video to finish so while we're still in this first step of refining all of this video footage down to

just the footage that we want in our end product then you may need to remove sections of your video where you might have made a mistake so to do that you just find the area that you want to remove select the video clip and then click on the

little knife or the little blade to cut the clip at that point so you can see there we've got two separate Clips now so if we come across a bit further we can add another cut maybe where you want the clip to start again and again select the

clip click on the little knife with a little blade and we split the clip at that point as well so now we've got three clips in our timeline so if you wanted to remove that section you can just select that Center clip now and then press the delete

button which is the trashcan we'll just undo that now the other thing you can do is this clip is exactly the same as the others if we select it you'll get the handles appear on that as well so you can actually get full control over your video and

really refine your editing here by sliding these handles in and out in order to really refine your cuts in your video you also have the ability to pick up and move the Clips around in your timeline to where you want them just a matter of tapping and holding

on the clip that you want to move and then moving it either to the left or and it will snap into place before or after the clips as you move them around to navigate around the timeline you can just pinch to zoom on that timeline which will zoom

in and out or you can just tap and slide left and right and you'll slide left and right across your timeline now if you've got any additional footage or any b-roll that you want to add in you just come across and hit the layers button on the left

hand side and select a video from there navigate through to the video file that you want to add in as b-roll and hit the plus button to drop it down to the timeline then hit the back button a few times to get back to the primary editing screen

so you can see that the b-roll footage we've just added has appeared on its own layer above our primary video layer and it's actually in a smaller box or a picture and picture effect that we can just pick up and move around and scale to how we want

it to look which is really powerful we also have the ability as we do with normal video footage to split the clips we get the handles that appear as well so we can really refine how much of the video clip we're actually wanting to use we can pick

up the clips by tapping on them and sliding them left and right so really you get a lot of control over your editing in this app the next step is to add in in the audio so that could be music or sound effects into your edit to do

that you just click on the import media button select music at the top and then find the music tracks that you want to import so for us we're going to add in full golden skies so we select the track and hit the plus button and let's drop down

into our timeline once again if we hit the back button a couple of times to get back to our main editing interface so you can see there that our music track has been dropped in the timeline right below our video footage they're just the same as with the

other clips without it you actually get the same amount of control with your music or audio tracks as well just by tapping on the music track you can see that straight away we get the handles in this case they're purple and we can adjust the start and end

points of the clip we can split the clip in two we can pick up the clip and we can move it around in our timeline you really get a great level of control in this app the next step is to add in any title text or graphics into

your videos so if we come back up to the start now we can add titles to our video by pressing the layers button and then title now in here there's a heap of different templates to choose from we're just going to pick the default with fade so that's

just a basic title that we can control and adjust but it's automatically got a fade built in so the Edit the text is just a matter of tapping on the text and replacing it with whatever you like to get more control over your titles if you really want

to tweak them and play around with them click the edit button and then click title designer in there you can change things like color the opacity you can change the font you can change whether your title is left centered or right justified you can apply bold italics filters

this app allows you to get pretty creative with your titles you also have the ability to easily resize reposition and recolor 3hours your titles so if you want to move your title around as a matter of clicking on it and dragging it into the position you want so

we're going to add a second title here we'll call one Justin Brown and the next one will be primal video so set it up as a normal lower third super title would be for a start of a video so now we're going to our first title we're just

going to duplicate that and you'll see that it appears next to our title we can then drag that down onto a second video layer which is underneath our first title to edit the text we just tap on the text or type in primal video and we'll scale it

down and move it into position so now that your video is close to being finished the next step is to color grade your video so just click on an individual clip hit the edit button and then pick color adjustment in there you get three simple settings for your

color correction brightness contrast and saturation and really between the three of these you should be able to get some pretty good effects so just a matter of tweaking these until you get the look that you're after I'll just show you a quick comparison of the clip before which

is unedited and the one that we've just color corrected now as PowerDirector only to apply color effects to individual clips if you think you're gonna do lots of cuts or edits in your video then it might be worth color correcting your videos first up at the start of

your editing in one hit instead of at this point in the process this is something that I'd normally advise against because it's gonna make your editing process slower because every time you make any changes then to your timeline it's gonna have to re-render and reprocess those color effects

that you've added to your timeline and something else just to show you in here as well is you do have the ability to add effects to your video files as well so if you just select a video clip and hit the effects button on the left and there's

a heap of little effects that you can add all looks that you can add on to your video files you can think of these like filters that you'd find in something like Instagram they're probably okay for anything consumer-grade but if you want any professional looks then I would

suggest sticking to the color tools which were the brightness the saturation and the contrast the next step is to adjust your audio levels so select settings and then audio mixing the screen lets you adjust all your volumes from a track level you don't have to get in and

edit the volume of each individual clip you can actually do it on the entire track which is awesome so for example by lowering the volume on the music tracks any music or songs that you've got that are on that track they'll all be now set to this new

volume level you also have the ability to adjust the volume levels on a clip by clip basis as well so if you've only got one or two clips that are too quiet or too loud and you only want to adjust those and you can do that as well

so just a matter of selecting the clip that you want to adjust the volume for clicking the edit button and then selecting volume so the other thing that you could probably do with your videos is to fade your music track in at the start of your video and

fade it out at the end of your video so to do that you just select your music track press edit and then choose volume and then on this audio configuration page you've got the ability to enable the fade in and fade out for that music track so now

that we've finished editing our video you can press the export button in the top right corner gives you two options you have the to save your project which I'd highly recommend that you do and then you can press it again and select a produce video CyberLink PowerDirector gives

you a heap of output options you can save it direct to your gallery or to your phone you can share it on Facebook share on YouTube you can also save your project to the CyberLink cloud which means if you're using CyberLink or PowerDirector on your PC for video

editing as well then you can send your project and share your projects between your Android device and your Windows PC so that's pretty cool you also get more output options if you want some more advanced control over your export and that gives you the option to export in

full HD HD or SD and save the file direct to your device if you found this video helpful we'd really appreciate a share a thumbs up and don't forget hit that big subscribe button if you haven't downloaded it yet make sure you grab our free guide running through
