A Good and Free Program for Online Video Editing - FlexClip

I was looking for a video editing program last week to create a video with pictures and sounds for a client, and I did not want to mess with Sony Vegas on desktop or Quik on my mobile. And I reminded you of FlexClip, a free online application that lets you quickly create clips, cut them off, add text, logos, and have free templates for various events. I've created a decent video in 5 minutes, and I can say I'm impressed.

I've logged in with my Google Account. Then I've chosen to create a video from scratch, and the interface looks very intuitive. If you do not know how to start, they have a tutorial for beginners.

The main features: you can create videos from scratch with your photos or videos; you can crop them, add backgrounds, soundtracks, logos, texts, watermarks; and you can record your voice directly in the editor if you have a microphone.

They include templates for various events, media galleries with pictures, clips and stock audio tracks that you can use at no cost, at least at the moment. The processing of the clip takes a little bit longer, for 2 minutes of video I waited for 5 minutes before I can save the file.

I just played with videos created from scratch with my pictures, to which I added stock songs from them. I did not test the templates, but from what I see it can be easily used to create clips with family, and for video presentations, product demos, etc.

Here are some great features I like:
-Free and easy to use.
-Millions of stock media choices include high-resolution photos, videos, and music.
Add a title and subtitle to the video and edit the font, color, size, etc.
-Record my voice-over within the service.
-Trim music to make it fit the length of the video.
-Real-time preview.
-1080P HD downloads.

The only down to now is that I have to load each picture or video clip separately. It does not still allow batch upload, or drag and drop.

I still do not know how they will make money as FlexClip is completely free now. Maybe in the future, it will probably be something similar to Canva, where access to basic services is free, but if you want more special pictures and more profitable templates, you have to pay. However, if you need a simple video editor with a fast learning curve, it's worthwhile testing the FlexClip.
