    I have a fan page on Facebook and I am currently working on our YouTube channel, what I am wanting to know is before all these video clips get put on these sites where do they come from just mini clips like beginning credits etc and if I wanted to brand my Facebook page onto these clips what would be the best software to use?

    Thanks for any help

    Hi mate,

    I use ScreenFlow (for Mac) for my videos - I am not sure about PC - something like Camtasia or as something free - try Jing.

    The mini clips you talk about - I take it you are talking about something like your logo spinning or coming into view - then disappearing, then the content of your video playing?

    Go to Fiverr - and type in 'video intro'. there are a selection of freelancers who will take your logo (or any graphic you want) and produce a short video animation that you can then drop into your video at the start and/or end of your main video content. This is where you will need one of the above video editing tools.

    Or this is a free site - http://www.flixpress.com/

    Hope that all makes sense.

    Screenflow and Camtasia are more screencasting software - sounds like you just need some simple editing software. There's plenty about - just google it.

    Ukbuyer1 I want it to constantly stay on whilst the clip is playing there just on 30 seconds to 1 minute maybe and it's the intros to a movie or tv show that I am wanting to know where the go to places are to get these sort of things

    Our IT video editing expert uses his Mac to do ours - Not sure what software he uses.

    On another note we have now switched from having our video channel on youtube to Vimeo - Believe there is a small cost but it means no annoying pop up adverts.

    If you've got a Mac - I think iMovie's pretty decent for doing simple edits.
