JayCut : Online Video Editor

Online video editing apps have taken the internet by storm since their inception. There are now many online video editing services available which provide state of the art video editing options. Today we’ll be reviewing an online video editing application called JayCut.

Although JayCut isn’t a free service, it can be used freely to check the feature it provides but the content edited using the Jaycut demo version cannot be saved for later usage.

How to use JayCut Video Editor?

Videos can be added to jayCut by clicking the Add Media button from where the option to upload media from the PC, URLs or even Webcam is available.



Once the media is uploaded video can be cut and modified by accessing the timeline ribbon at the bottom which shows different parts of video and how video elements in it transit. This ribbon can be zoomed in and zoomed out of using the Zoom In and Zoom Out buttons located on top of the ribbon. If two videos are being merged then their timelines can be arranged in a similar manner to allow for overlap etc.

    Great article and tutorial for newbies to the online editing world.
    JayCut IS free to use for anyone, even the the community where you can showcase created movies and embed them to external pages.

    Yesterday we launched an updated version which now includes drawing tools for video annotation and support for 10 different languages. If you have the chance please check it out, you’ll like it!
