KineMaster: Edit and share video straight from your Android device

logo_web

 

KineMaster is the flagship video editing and sharing application from the boffins over at NexStreaming, who are primarily known for their NexPlayer and NexSound products.

In the Google play store KineMaster gets a well-rounded rating of 4.3 stars, below is my hands on review of the app. The review is based on video editing on my Google Nexus 7 which, although sports a small form factor – working with KineMaster is painless.

Hands On

KineMaster contains just about everything you could ever need for video editing. The app uses clever design, and simple drag and drop functionality to provide powerful video editing tools to both new android user and power user.

The almost seamless integration with the operating systems file system makes dragging media in from many sauces a synch. The same goes in reverse, exporting your completed ‘masterpiece’ couldn’t be easier. What’s more the app has several social media upload options built-in, enabling ease of upload to YouTube, Facebook and Google+.

The ability to preview your creation at any point throughout your editing process makes keeping an end on your end goal easy. Whats more, there’s something pretty special about watching your project go from that first thumbnail to the next Hollywood blockbuster. Ok, maybe your movie won’t make it to that level, but at least you know it will be the go to piece at your next diner party!

There’s plenty of transition, stickers and saturation controls built into the app, thus meaning you spend less time outside the app tweaking your content and more time in the app stitching it all together.

One more powerful feature (of which I am yet to see/use in other Android video editors) is the ability to record voice commentary after the event of video recording. This comes in handy when you want to narrate a scene, but don’t want to do it at the time due to background noise.

Check out this tutorial from their very own YouTube channel, you can find this among over tutorials here.
