How to Edit Videos on iPhone

If you want to take the best videos on your iPhone while also making sure that you are getting the best possible quality at all times then you need to think about how you are shooting your video in the first place. After all, if you are using the camera app that comes with the iPhone then you will already be cutting down on quality. This is because the camera app that comes with the iPhone isn't great and it actually limits the quality that you can record in. By swapping this with a camera from the app store, you can actually get much better results and this is great if you want to film in the best possible light.

Lighting Tips

The camera on your phone has seen plenty of improvement over the last couple of years. That doesn't mean that it can be filmed in low lighting without compromising the end result. For this reason, you need to make sure that you film in daylight wherever possible because this will help to stop your videos from looking grainy and it will also help to give them a boost in general.

Excellent guide, really. But before editing, I always have to convert videos to adjust them to my iPhone. I use https://www.coolutils.com/TotaliPodConverter for these purposes, it also works greatly with iPod and even iPad.
