Canva – Online Video Editor to Create Videos on Templates
The service has been known for a long time, it is well known to specialists in social media promotion.
The video editor itself is nothing special, but it’s not necessary. It is extremely easy to use, has an intuitive interface, and is accessible enough for an inexperienced person to master in a few minutes.
Like all applications on the platform, it is designed to very quickly create a visual product that looks attractive and is intended to be used in a specific situation. Working with it has the same structure as when creating ordinary graphic designs.
The service offers the templates of the main social networks. You can work in free format. As with the rest of the applications on the platform, there are collections available.
In this case, not only photos and design templates, but also music and videos.

The free tariff plan allows you to use the video editor, but in this case the means of publication on social networks are not available, the branding tools do not work, and only a small part of the clipart is available.
But the amount of disk space is 5 GB, so in many cases a free plan is suitable for the first stage of work.
The Pro plan costs $11.99/month when billed monthly and $8.99/month when billed annually.
When buying this plan, there are practically no restrictions, except for the limit of 100 GB of disk space, support for 1 set of branding and the lack of tools to organize teamwork.

By purchasing the more expensive Professional plan for $119/year, the service provides multiple access and the right to sell the created videos.
Moovly: Online Video Maker for Training and Tutorial Videos
Why for production instead of creating and editing?
Because the Moovly platform is a production line in the best sense of the word. A production line that can guarantee the production of a large number of videos, if that is exactly what you need.
The service offers many video templates for business (marketing and sales, HR, internal communications, for branding), training (for teachers, for students, for staff, video tutorials) and personal (free mapping and formatting ).
Now, a little about the production. We are talking about the automated production of videos for automatic publication on social networks and in e-mail. The service supports three types of video creation:
- fast video production by replacing images and texts in templates (own templates and client templates are supported),
- generation of a series of videos with information selected from a list or database,
- conversion of Twitter, RSS and other feeds into videos.
For work, the platform offers the Moovly Studio video editor, the Video Automator video production automation program, mobile applications – companions for iOS Android, as well as a plugin for CMS (website content management systems). ) WordPress.
Something surprising is that a WordPress plugin is not what you think. This is not a built-in player.
This is a video generator from your website content!
We cannot guarantee the quality of the plugin at the time of writing this article, because it is marked as a beta version and is not compatible with the latest versions of WordPress; we do not verify it. But the idea is interesting.
Payment: by subscription, monthly or annually. The prices correspond to the average of this group of services. The free tariff plan allows you to work, but with restrictions, which make it a suitable demo version to get acquainted with the service.
In the paid versions, the platform works in HD 1080p resolution and provides all the necessary tools.
Something surprising is the strict restrictions on the number of downloads, even for paid plans, but in real life, 25 or 50 videos produced per month with Pro and Max rates respectively is a lot for any professional.
And 100 is only possible for those who bought the Enterprise plan and work with a team, but this is still a lot.
Placeit: Online Video Maker and Design Platform

The platform’s services are grouped into thematic packages linked to the types of user activity (business, agency, education, marketing, training, communications, remote work) and are provided according to tariff plans with a regular monthly or annual payment.
Technically, the service is similar in its capabilities to its competitors and does not stand out in any way.
Using the free plan, you can use 100 MB of disk space, create videos up to 3 minutes long in HD 720p resolution, and download them without restrictions with the service’s watermarks.

As fees increase, so does the volume of access to media libraries.
The premium plan provides 100 GB of space, unlimited video downloads up to 30 minutes in length, and advanced animation and character customization tools.
Theme packs are quite advisory in nature and should help you better navigate the capabilities of the service.

Each section has its own thematic rubricator.
The video editor is very simple, based on the use of templates and clipart.

Work in HD 720p and HD1080p resolutions and step-by-step expansion of opportunities to export videos and access media collections are available with a paid subscription.
Considering that the platform really offers quite a complete set of opportunities for the operational development of visual branding, and the tariff plans also include a website builder with hosting services, the prices look quite attractive.
Typito: Online Video Maker for Text Work
A simple video editor that combines ease of use and template creation with advanced text aesthetics.
It is precisely because of its advanced work with texts that the service probably got its name.
The service is a bundle of web applications that run in a browser window.
The main application is the Video Maker video editor.
In addition, there is a thumbnail generator for the major social networks, a speech to text converter (it’s usually the other way around!) for use in titles and subtitles, a subtitle generator, and a video ad editor for Facebook.
You can download SRT files for later use on other platforms and editors that support importing them.
The service is paid by subscription with monthly or annual payments. The free plan is available after registration, but it is very limited: you can make 4 videos per month with the service’s watermarks. But to get started and master all the tools, it is enough.
The paid rates are slightly more expensive than average, but for this money you are unlikely to find something similar for working with texts.
Wave.Video: Online Video Editor and Hosting Service

Wideo – Simple and Fast Online Video Editor
The service is specifically designed to create dynamic videos, slideshows, presentations, and videos in the Instagram Stories format.
The work is based on the use of templates. There are many and they are grouped into categories (commercial presentation, product presentation, various for marketing, e-commerce, promotional videos, startup presentations, educational videos, for Instagram Stories).
The service is well documented and contains instructions in video form.

There is a free tariff plan, but its capabilities are very modest, it is suitable only for getting acquainted with this service.

All of this will cost $19/month if paid annually and $59/month if paid monthly.
The two most expensive tariff plans, Pro and Pro +, give you the opportunity to use HD 1080p resolution, have no restrictions on the number of downloads, and increase the maximum length of videos to 10 and 30 minutes, respectively.
Disk space is not limited. The more expensive Pro + plan provides access to premium support and allows you to have an additional user account.
The service has a very interesting, almost exclusive feature. When using Pro and Pro + tariffs, the service provides its own player. When exporting videos, with the help of this player you can add interactive elements on top of the video.
Simply put, your video can contain buttons, icons, and other objects with embedded hyperlinks. Very useful for business uses.
We decided on the choice of the best options in this rich group of services by categories.
The correspondence of the capabilities of the declared specialization, the completeness of the coverage of the types of formats, the availability of documentation and training materials, the completeness of the official information and the current activity of the company were taken into account.
It wasn’t that easy.
