Top five video editing apps for every pro


The ZenFone 3 Zoom can capture some beautiful video, and now it’s time to put it together with the best video editing apps Android has to offer.

Adobe Premiere Clip

Adobe Premiere Clip is a quick and dirty video editing app that handles all of the basics and then some. You can tack multiple files together, adjust the audio they produce, add text titles to introduce sections, apply filters, and otherwise make exposure, shadow, and highlight tweaks. This is a great pick for a streamlined, no-nonsense video editor that gets the job done.


Quik is a video app by GoPro which excels in its use of transitions. When initially generating a video, it will place transitions and filters that are incredibly vibrant and lively, depending on the mood you’re aiming to strike. Media can be imported easily either locally from your ZenFone 3 Zoom storage, or files stored on Facebook, Google Drive, or elsewhere. If your videos need a big style upgrade, Quik is the way to do it.


PowerDirector is a full-bodied editing suite, complete with a wide range of transitions, animations, titles, and multi-track support. In-app purchases are available with additional creative tools. On the audio side, you can load up included soundtrack, drop in your own music, or locally record voiceover. This is a perfect pick for those that want a deep, detailed tool for working on longer videos.


In addition to a suite of standard video editing options, VideoShow stands out by having a handful of custom rendering options. These can be useful for specific tasks, like extracting audio from a video file, doodling on a video, or rendering a video in reverse. The developer makes some great companion apps, such as one that assembles a still photo slideshow in time to music thanks to your tapping with the beat. Check out VideoShow if you want to tinker with some fun advanced video editing tools.


If you need a little something more than just clever editing, good titles, and the right soundtrack, FXGuru offers a wealth of explosive overlays to really liven up your video. By shooting your video through FXGuru, you can include things like dragons breathing fire, dancing reindeer, UFOs on the horizon, and lots more. Each one is available through in-app purchases, but there are free effects daily, and you can get bundles of effects for cheap.


On top of these apps, every ZenFone 3 Zoom comes with MiniMovie installed, which can put together a collection of stills and video clips into a beautiful themed final product. Learn more about MiniMovie here!

Remember, the ZenFone 3 Zoom can record video at 4K resolution, and thanks to electronic and optical image stabilization, moving around is incredibly smooth. Of course, optical zoom helps you get closer than ever to capture every detail. Learn more about the ZenFone 3 Zoom over here.
