Is this an Android or iOS app?
YAY it's BOTH so we can all enjoy using it!
Is there a time limit on this course?
Not at all. You can work at your own pace, and take as long as you want.
You can go back and re-watch the videos and practice and try out new things as many times as you want.
How long do I have access to the course?
You have access for the life of the course, for as long as the course is available. If I decide to retire the course for any reason, you will have adequate notice and I'll let you know your next steps.
Will you keep this course up-to-date?
Yes it's my intention to keep this course as up-to-date as I can. Technology training is notoriously difficult to keep updated, and it can be easy to miss changes as they happen so quickly. But I will do my best to keep up. If you spot a change that is different from the course demos, please let me know and I will make the required changes as soon as I can.
Will you include every new option and feature?
Ah good question! This course is to help you get started and learn the basic and most important features so you can create videos. It doesn't include every single feature and button because when you are learning that would be overwhelming & unnecessary.
This course has been carefully designed to build your skills and confidence and get you creating simple but effective videos.
Once you feel comfortable with the app, you will have developed the confidence to 'have a play' and see what other buttons, settings and features can do. Always remember... you can't break anything AND YOU ALWAYS HAVE THE UNDO BUTTON AT YOUR FIGERTIPS!
Do I need to pay for the PRO version of CapCut?
No - this course is solely built upon the FREE version, and I don't use the Pro version anyway - I find I can do everything I want just using the free version.
Why not just use the video editor inside Reels or TikTok?
When you use CapCut to make your videos then you only have one video editor to learn, AND you can then upload your video to different platforms, such as Instagram Reels, Facebook Reels, Stories, YouTube Shorts, Pinterest and TikTok. If you use the in-app editors within the different social media platforms - they are often quite 'flaky' and don't always work very well, they change very often, and other platforms don't like you uploading videos with other platforms 'watermarks' on them.
What sort of videos will I learn to make?
You will learn how to start with simple photo and music style videos, with simple effects.
Then you will learn how to edit video footage, combine with photos and effects. And add music, synch with the beat and so much more.
You will also learn how to record 'talking head' videos and use the great autocue so it's faster and easier to make powerful, simple but effective videos to get visible and start marketing your business.
And 'cos CapCut is made by the same people who make TikTok... you also have loads of templates and whacky effects, filters and stickers etc to add and go crazy with... if you want to.
BUT our focus is to get started and make simple fast and easy videos. You can play with the crazy stuff later!
How quickly will I be able to make a video?
Well it's not a race! But the course is structured to quickly get you making a video once you have had a tour around the app and the editor, and have got the general idea how it works.
You'll learn best by watching a short video and then following along and trying yourself.
When I ran this training live with a group of mid-life ladies who had no clue how to make videos, and who were very nervous... after 90 minutes they had all made a basic video and were proudly sharing them on their social media accounts!
You can see from the course content above that the videos are all short and well organised. They guide you step-by-step through the important skills, features and techniques.
