Have you just come home after what was an amazing trip? Did you take a ton of video footage using your smartphone or camera while you were there? If so, why not use that footage and turn your videos into a home movie that showcases all the best parts of your trip and the exciting time that you had?
Planning the Home Movie
To get started, the first thing you need to do is go over all the video footage that you recorded and plan out your home movie. What that means is you want an overall idea of what sequence the videos are going to appear in, as well as whether you’re going to use the entirety of each video or whether you’d like to get rid of some parts of certain videos that are unnecessary.
If you have a lot of videos that you plan on including, you may want to write short notes regarding the plan that you come up with so that you can keep track of it.
Creating the Home Movie
Although people tend to assume that creating a home movie is difficult, the truth is that with intuitive and user-friendly software such as the Movavi Video Converter it really isn’t. Granted the software is primarily a movie converter, but it has all the tools you need to create a decent home movie.
Start by adding the videos that you want to include in the home movie, and use the trim and join features to cut out any unnecessary footage and merge the videos together until it fits with your plan. If some of your videos are oriented incorrectly or sized differently you can use the crop and rotate features too.
Once you’ve done that, you can choose whether or not you need to enhance the video quality or add text as captions or even as a watermark. By this point, your home movie showcasing your trip should be practically done and you can save it using a preset to optimize it for any device or platform.
Assuming you want to do more, you could even use the Movavi Video Converter to adjust the sound, add new audio tracks, or even create animated GIFS from your clips. Frankly there are so many options available to you – and it’ll be up to you to decide what you feel is best for your home movie.
