What is the name of the tool?
| Tool Class
To what "family" does the tool belong? Pick as many categories as are appropriate. EG: Data Collection, Security, etc. The wiki will automatically create a link to the relevant tool class.
|Video Editing, Video Recording|
Who made the tool? Sometimes the tool name and the developer name are the same, and sometimes, they are different.
| Date Created
What was the date when the tool was first launched?
| Still Maintained?
Do the developers of the tool continue to work on it, adding features and fixing problems?
| Open Source?
Is the tool's source code original source code freely available and may it be redistributed and modified? (This makes it possible for users to employ the tool for free, with some technical effort.)
Pick the platforms on which the user would primarily use the tool. Be as selective as possible. If a tool works mainly in the browser, select "Web". If the user can technically load the interface on a smartphone but have a very poor experience, do not select "Android" or "iOS". "Mac" and "PC" are for apps that must be installed to a machine in order to run, as opposed to running from a browser.
What is the main website where a user can learn more about the tool? (Remember to include "http://)."
| Payment Structure
How, if at all, does a user pay to use the tool. Select all that apply: "Free" if there are components of a service that can be used for free; "Paid" if payment is required (either one-time, or at a given rate upon use) for use of the tool's full functionality; "subscription" if a monthly payment is required.
| Languages Supported
What languages does the app's interface support? Note: some apps allow users to communicate in other languages but require the user to use an English language interface. In this case, the app is considered only to support "English".
| Skill Level Needed
WeVideo is a web-based Video Recording and Video Editing tool for creating video content in a browser. At the free level the user can produce short, low resolution, watermarked videos, but at the next tier of payment is able to create complex, high resolution video. Nonprofit entities can apply for a discounted plan. The tool allows users to collaborate on projects and enables users to adopt multiple roles.
WeVideo provides different editing modes. "Storyboard" mode provides a basic interface for beginners to video editing while "Timeline" mode provides a more complex, multi-track editing option.
What Makes This Tool Different from Others in its Class?
WeVideo is a Video Editing tool that provides a reasonable editor for a moderate price. It has far more functions than the YouTube editor, but is not as powerful as dedicated desktop tools like Lightworks. On the other hand, because WeVideo is web-based, it is convenient for would-be editors who don't have access to a powerful machine. WeVideo imposes limits on storage and the amount of output time available to users per month.
