Edit Media

This is a list of tools you can use to edit your video/audio material. Remember: editing doesn't have to be complex. Sometimes all you need to do is change the start and stop point in a video--the essence of editing is focusing the attention of your audience. An important note here is that you may run into some copyright issues, depending on your content and your method of distribution. Because copyright law is a contentious topic right now, there is a lot of misinformation being spread about copyright law and Fair Use. The Fair Use Checklist is a useful guide to help you navigate the fair use law. E-campus and OSU have additional copyright policies that do not necessarily overlap with federal copyright law.
