If you love recording videos on your iPhone, you would be interested in learning how you can edit your iPhone videos on your PC. There are many ways to do it and the following guide covers some of those methods for you.
When it comes to video recording, the iPhone is just as amazing as it is for capturing photos. If you have been using an iPhone as your primary device, you have likely recorded quite a few videos on your phone. Although the videos do not really need much editing, sometimes you may want to remove certain parts from the videos, add some special effects, and basically do some basic editing of your videos.
If you use a Windows PC, you have a number of iPhone video editors available for your Windows computer. You can use any of these to edit and make your videos more appealing on your PC. The only thing you are going to need is some creativity and you can leave the rest to these apps to take care of.
Before you can use any of the apps on your Windows PC to edit your videos, you will need to first transfer the videos from your iPhone over to your PC. There are various ways to do it including using the iTunes app to transfer your content.
However, most of those methods are not much efficient and you need to go through dozens of screens before your videos are imported to your PC. If this is something you have experienced before and you would now like a more efficient method, a third-party app can help you out.
AnyTrans for iOS is an app for both Windows and Mac that allows you to easily transfer data between your iPhone and your computers. You can use it to transfer photos, music, and even videos between your iOS devices and your Windows or Mac machine. You can use the app to have your iPhone videos imported to your PC, and you can then start editing them. The following shows how to do it.
Step 1. Download AnyTrans for iOS on your PC and install it > Connect your iPhone to PC via a USB cable > Click on “Device Manager” mode > Choose “Photos” if you want to transfer the photo videos, and choose “Videos” to transfer other types of video.
Transfer photo videos to PC: Click on the “My Photos” option > Choose the “Photo Videos” option > Select the photo videos you want to transfer > Click on “To Computer” button at the top-right corner to start transferring the selected photo videos to your PC.
Transfer movies and other types of video from iPhone to PC: Here we take Movies for an example. Choose “Movies” > Select the videos you want to transfer > Click on the “To Computer” button to copy them to your PC.
Once your iPhone videos are available on your PC, you can start editing them using any of your favorite editing apps. If you have not yet installed any video editors on your PC, you can use the built-in Photos app on your computer to do the task.
The Photos app has all the basic editing tools you need to retouch your videos. If you want more than that, you can always go for a premium editing app such as Adobe Premiere.
Step 1. On your PC, click on the Cortana search box, search for Photos, and click on the app when it appears in the search results.
Step 2. When the app launches, find the option that says New video which is usually located at the top and select the New video project option. It will let you create a new project for your video editing job.
Step 3. On the following screen, you will be asked to enter a name for your project. It could be anything but you want to use something that you can recognize later.
Step 4. Click on the Add button and then choose From this PC to add your imported iPhone videos to the app.
Step 5. Select the folder and then the video you want to add to your project.
Step 6. Once a video is added, right-click on the file and select the Place in the storyboard option. It will add the video to the editing timeline.
Step 7. You can now start editing your video however you want. You can use various text styles, trim the video, add filters, add motion effects, and so on. Feel free to play around with the available features to edit your video. Make sure to save your project when you finish editing it.
If you are looking for more than some basic video editing tools, the Photos app might not be sufficient for you. A better and more suitable app would be Adobe Premiere. It is a professional-grade video editor that lets you turn your basic iPhone videos into some of the really great-lookings videos you have ever seen. You will find using Adobe Premier a bit more difficult than the Photos app but it is all worth the hassle.
Step 1. Download and launch the Adobe Premiere app on your PC.
Step 2. Click on the File menu at the top and then select the option that says Import. It will let you import your iPhone videos.
Step 3. Once your video is imported, you are free to use any of the available tools to edit your video. You can add custom text, custom background music, various effects, and so on.
Editing your iPhone videos on a Windows PC is fairly easy, thanks to both built-in as well as third-party video editors available for the platform. Even if you are a newbie, you will find it easier to add some fancy stuff to your videos on your PC.
