Edit Movies on the PC

PC video-editing software enables you to make complete movies from the short video clips you take from your mobile phone camera.

Once you’ve transferred your mobile phone video clips to a desktop computer [Hack #33] , you can use powerful video-editing software to make complete and professional-looking movies. Of course, editing mobile phone video is different from editing video taken from a regular digital video camera, since with the former you have to work with short and low-quality clips. In this hack, I’ll cover some common video-editing tasks that are most relevant to mobile video editing.

Stitch Together Multiple Clips

The default video recorder in many Nokia phones can capture only 10 seconds or so of video content in each clip. This is to limit the total clip size to less than 100 KB so that it stays under the maximum MMS message size imposed by most networks. The 10-second clips are a bit too short for most events. You have to combine and edit those fragmented scenes before you can share them with friends.
