New YouTube Toys & Tools
Inspire Fun & Creativity!

YouTube has been building out it’s collection of Add-ons and the results are pretty darn cool!

Over at https://www.youtube.com/create you can find these 8 cool toys, most of which have been designed to work with YouTube but are partnerships with other companies.

What’s really fantastic about this is that majority of these are video editors (and a few creators) that really streamline the creation process and make it easier to edit videos “on the go” right in the browser than ever before!

The YouTube Video Editor (product of YouTube) is deeply integrated in the site and I wrote about them before.

I also suggest having a close look at WeVideo which accomplishes a lot of what Windows Movie Maker can do and since it runs in the browser is available to Mac/PC/Linux.

Youtube Creative Tools - One True Media Youtube Creative Tools - Video EditorYoutube Creative Tools - Stupeflix Video Maker

Youtube Creative Tools - XtranormalYoutube Creative Tools - Vlix Video Effects and Text

Youtube Creative Tools - Magisto Video Editing

 I think you’re really going to not only ENJOY this collection but also find a lot of cool ways you can bring video to your audience.

I’ll cover WeVideo in another post because it’s worth taking a closer look at what it can do if you tend to edit in tools like Movie Maker.

Check them out over at: https://www.youtube.com/create

Have you checked out any of these toys? What tools would you most like to see YouTube add? What do you feel would make YouTube easier to get started with?

It's frustrating to see that after spending so much of my time uploading videos on Youtube, they are still nowhere near becoming viral. I'm glad you shared these tools. Thanks!

Thank you for this list of very valuable tools. You Tube, being one of the most popular and effective platforms nowadays to market and advertise, can really be more exciting with the integration of these tools. Can't wait to try all of them.

I'm using WeVideo and it works great :) It has so many awesome effects and i didn't see some of these in even after effects.

Thanks Kim,

Plenty to get stuck into there. I have played about with XtraNormal a few times and made some cool little promo videos for my eco friendly business. Great fun! I will have to get my teeth into some of the others to give them a go. Magisto looks great!

Never thought that there are so many interesting creative tools tied up with Youtube. Among the list of tools you've actually mentioned, I only know a few of them. I might try checking some of these two especially that videos are more appealing now compared to the traditional text content.

It was actually my first time to hear some of these tools, but I'm more familiar with one true media. I've seen lots of interesting videos using this tool, one true media.

Kim,

I want to start with your website looks awesome! I am very impressed by it and it has great branding! I personally think the editor that Youtube has released is suffiecient for a free service. I have played around with vlix and enjoyed the interface it has. I will have to check out the others now! Thanks for sharing about these awesome tools.

Talk soon,

Kyle

Oh what fun, something new and geeky to play with on the long Winter nights when it's too snowy to make it to the pub! I'm loving the transcripts that you can view below videos now very clever stuff :)

Kim,

I've never heard of any of these tools but they look really interesting. I'm definitely going to check/test some of these out.

Which tool do you enjoy the most?

Thanks for the insight!

Hey Kim, you are on top of this girl! Any thing that helps me with making videos. I have made only 3 and I would like to get better at it. Do you always use your computer or do you also use a flip cam? I like Mandy's suggestion of the tool that would keep track of past words...

Amanda

You are absolutely right - I haven't seen them before) I like finding out something new and interesting! Thanks a lot for sharing topical information)

Thanks for this! I am always shopping for new toys to play with - especially for things that I am pitiful at (anything related to graphics or videos) looks like WeVideo makes a group effort easy for the virtually based company. Yummy!

hi Kim, I think YouTube has really 'nailed by introducing these 'toys'. Being able to upload a video and then edit it straight there and then is such a time saver. I have previously been a windows movie maker fan (fan of the simple things in life!) However, I am really looking forward to learning more about WeMovie. Anything that cuts a step out of the video making process and saves time gets the thumbs up from me!

As for things I owuld love YouTube to introduce - well, first up faster upload times! They are faster than they used to be but it's still a bit of a slog. That and being a bit more 'intuitive' when you enter description and keywords. If they introduced a tool that 'remembers' keywords you've used before and offer them as autosuggestions, that would get the thumbs up from me!

Looking forward to the new toys, thanks :)

Hey Adrian, I agree that many tools that are not official partners have more publicity. A lot of these are new partnerships with Youtube and for some reason Youtube has not done a great job of promoting them. Be sure to check them out too :)

Animoto is a video tool but not a Youtube partner like these others are Simon. Whether that's because there have been some debates over royalty on some of Animoto's audio tracks by Youtube, I really don't know.

Right now, I'm checking goanimate and doing my animated videos! It's fun to make a video there! Though some of its features need a premium account, still, free features can be enough to make some cool animated videos.

Sony Vegas is great software and highly recommended. The thing to pay attention to is the versions (which kinda got renamed recently) to be sure you have the right one. I don't know what the right one is but that's what I'd attend to if I were going to buy.
