You are probably here because your passion is making home videos of special events. You’ll capture any occasion, be it weddings or parties, on tape. Or, perhaps you’re a blogger? You might be a social media professional who is looking to make cool videos for sharing on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
We know that there are many video-making software programs out there. It can be overwhelming, and, if you’re being honest, quite complicated, to choose the one that best suits your needs.
It’s worthwhile to invest a bit of time in choosing the right platform if you want to create high-quality video content quickly.
We’re here to help you with all your online video editing needs.
Fastreel allows anyone, whether they are amateurs or professionals, to create and edit online videos. You can either use one of Fastreel’s online templates, or a combination of other online tools depending on your preferences.
Fastreel, a Movavi company, was founded in 2004 as a start up. It offers a range of multimedia programs that allow customers to edit, enhance and share video content online.
Their vision? Sergei Pavlishin, their founder, stated that they wanted to make everyone happy.
Fastreel is a part of this vision. It allows video editors to:
- Utilize the built-in templates
- Add music and text
- Export your work in high or low quality
- Upload videos directly to Facebook and YouTube, without leaving Fastreel.
Now that you have a good idea of what Fastreel is capable of, let’s dive deeper into the details.
Fastreel’s primary features
Fastreel, as we have already mentioned, allows users to create videos via a set of templates or online tools.
We will now walk you through each option.
These templates allow you to create an advert, intro, or outro for your wedding video, or a memory of graduation to share with all your family members or anyone else.
There are 28 templates available. They can be renamed according to the occasion. There are templates available for videos presentations, Valentine’s Day and holiday trailers.
Fastreel guides users through the process of creating a video using the template that they choose. These include helpful tips on how to shape your video. If you are creating a birthday video, the best suggestion is to use “Tell the Story of a Life”, alongside “Make a Birthday Ecard.” Simply click the “make video” button to take you to a screen where your video can be created.
Fastreel’s online tools allow you to have greater editorial control.
These tools include:
- Create a video
- Click on a video
- For example, a business presentation could use a slideshow.
- If a video is too long, you can trim it.
- Crop a video that includes rotating and flipping clips
- You can change the speed of the video, i.e. make it faster or slow down
- Video Merge
- Mute a Video
- You can add music to your video and adjust the volume.
- Video resized
Each feature allows you to edit your video right from your web browser. We don’t have enough time to cover all the tools available, so let’s take an example: Let’s say we are making a wedding video.
We clicked on “make video” and this is what happened:
Simply add/upload any video you have already filmed to the Fastreel website in JPEG or MP4, PNG or GIF formats (maximum 500MB).
Fastreel lets you customize your video. You can add clips and photos, arrange them in the order they belong, and even organize them. Once you have done this, you can choose the transition style and the duration of the image display. You can upload your own music or choose from Fastreel’s online library.
Simply select Export and then click Download. Fastreel’s interface makes editing easy. After you have finished creating your video you can share it on YouTube and Facebook.
It’s all great so far. But how much does it cost to get all this functionality? Let’s take an in-depth look.
There are three pricing options: Unlimited Premium, Single-Premium and Free. Unlimited Premium is 25% cheaper if you pay annually than if your pay monthly.
All three plans provide access to all the features that we have already mentioned. The only drawback to the free plan is that your video will be watermarked and have a low quality output of 480p.
Single-Premium is $5.95 per video. You can either pay monthly or annually; the price remains the same. This allows you to remove the watermark and get high-quality video content as well as a premium export. You can only use one template or tool for each video that you make. The result can also be saved. You can use another template, tool or tool by paying another $5.95.
The Unlimited Premium Plan offers the most value with its monthly price of $19.95/mo and its discounted annual rate $14.95/mo. This plan is expensive, and it’s likely to be for professionals or amateurs who want to create professional-looking content or videos on social media.
