A couple of days ago I noticed my son enthusiastically watching Zach King‘s videos on YouTube. And you know, it’s really interesting. Even for adults.
But it’s not about Zach’s funny videos. It’s about children’s interest in this kind of video editing using AR elements.
The first thing that came to mind was Meta Spark Studio. A great free editor with a free online course. But it’s a bit complicated for a kid.
I started searching the Internet for similar video editors for children and found several:
