Final Cut Pro is a video production suite, used to produce movies like The Social Network, 500 Days of Summer and 300. It’s not available for Chromebook, but if you’re shooting for Hollywood this probably isn’t the computer for you. However, if you’re editing a home video or preparing some concert footage for upload to YouTube, there are some alternatives you can use.
YouTube Video Editor
If you’re uploading to YouTube, you can use the YouTube Video Editor – upload your raw video first, then hop into the editor to add captions, effects and cuts between clips. It’s not hardcore stuff, but if you’re after some basic editing and you’re already using YouTube, it’s a good option.
WeVideo is an online video editor with the usual set of basic features, plus some nice standard background animations you can fill out your movie with (e.g. for transitions). You can also collaboratively edit video, if that tickles your fancy. The downside is that it isn’t free – you’ll need to pay to export more than 15 minutes of video per month.
