Introduction to RoughCut Edit

RoughCut Edit is a web application, which combines video segments from various video entries into one coherent video. RoughCut Edit projects can be processed further in more advanced video editors (e.g. Premiere and FinalCut Pro), published to Youtube and social media or exported to a new entry, video or audio file. RoughCut Edit is supported on all three major browsers: Chrome, Edge and Firefox.
