    Youtubers who edit their videos with Blender ?

    Do you know some good youtubers (hopefuly who make a living of it) who use Blender's VSE for all their video editing ?
    I'm talking about real footage and possible mix with VFX but not pure CGI animation.

    For example I wonder what they use at Corridor Digital for video editing.
    I know Captain Disillusion uses Blender only for the 3D effects and uses After Effects and probably Premiere Pro for the rest.

    That wasn't my question. I was just asking if you know some youtubers who use Blender's VSE for their video editing.

    I tried but the compression in mp4 is way too slow on Blender.
    Maybe it's faster now, have to try.

    Here and there I always play with VSE but often I rather use a more mature video app like ShotCut or Screenflow for making screencasts for youtube.

    Other question - why do you ask - or what do you want to do with the VSE?

    Yes. That guy. He even wrote an addon that he uses to improve the experience, and created a tutorial playlist on how to use it.

    Good Luck.

    Ok sorry I meant Youtuber in the sense of entertainer (like those 2 I mentioned in my first post), not tutorial makers.

    I doubt you will find any. Even 0$ price tag of Blender is not enough to justify how inferior is it as a tool used solely for video editing. The workflow of dedicated video editors, such as Premiere, Vegas Pro, or Resolve (which comes with same price tag as Blender) is just miles ahead of Blender.

    On top of that, Blender first needs to be customized to serve at least reasonably as a video editor, and customization of Blender is quite difficult given how current UI handles it. It will work for a Blender user, but it will not work for a newbie looking specifically for a video editor. The customization of Blender itself has at least 2 days of learning curve for those with no prior experience (for example having to manually click save preferences button or they get lost). That's not something a YouTuber wanting to edit videos will every want to put up with.

    If you open Adobe Premiere in comparison, as soon as you double click a desktop shortcut, you are pretty much ready to start video editing, even without any prior experience.

    With these factors in mind, I am confident that pretty much 100% of people will not choose Blender discretely as a video editor. Only people who would are those, who use Blender for other tasks and are happy to have video editing capabilities packed in the same package. But no one will voluntarily make their lives that much more difficult, when it comes to video editing.

    If you find even only one person, I will be perplexed.

    I hope there are at least a few out there.

    Why ? There are much better alternatives available (that means almost any alternative)
