JayCut: New and Improved!

Jaycut used to be my go-to tool for online video editing.  It was WONDERFUL as an excuse-breaker for students when editing their video.  No more "we can't get together" problems.  But then it closed down.

Well, guess what?  Jaycut's back, and better than ever with a sleek new design. The account is free, and once you've uploaded the video, allows simple editing.  You can cut clips, add titles, transitions and audio with multiple tracks.  It allows publishing either online or as a desktop download.

Here's a sample video I put together using their preset videos/audio, with a simple title in front and a dissolve about halfway through.


  1. JayCut is sleek and gorgeous. But inability to remixing EACH OTHER's content is drag., a new online editing solution released last, week lets you do this. And while JayCut is more elegant, I think Stroome is a better collaborative tool.

  2. Hadn't heard of that one. I'll check it out.

    But why can't they remix each other's in JayCut? All you have to do is load the video.
