Video editing - One True Media

March 24, 2010

This online video editing resource allows users to upload a limited number of (100) of mb of data per month.  Users can upload photos, video and music in a variety of formats.  The edited video (finished product) cannot be downloaded to the user for free, it can only be linked to.  The site claims that any product created will be kept for 90 days following the last sign-in by the user.

The following restrictions apply to users:
The Service is for personal use only; use of the Service for commercial use or for broadcast or distribution to persons outside of a normal circle of a family and its social acquaintances is expressly prohibited.
To register as a member of One True Media, we require that you be 13 years or older.

This restriction appears to prohibit the use of this site by class groups though it is not 100% clear what a "normal circle of a family and its social acquaintances" would include.

Any student or teacher who is familiar with timelines (MovieMaker, iMovie or others) will have no problem getting started on making a "montage" .  There are some basic photos, video and music clips available without uploading that allow the user to experiment with the features without digging into the quota of uploads.

This site relies heavily on Flash so it is not functional when viewed using either an iPod Touch or an iPad.
