I need a way to create videos for my organization and edit them. A variety of editors are available, both paid and free, but one option worth considering is Vimeo. The Vimeo cloud-based editor allows you to enhance your videos before downloading or publishing them online.

Vimeo offers a free plan that allows you to save and publish your videos with very limited editing capabilities. Therefore, we recommend that you sign up for one of the paid plans. All of these plans offer free trials so you can try them out before you buy. Once you have an account, you can simply upload the video to the Vimeo website and edit it directly in your browser. The mechanism is as follows.
