Video editing made easy: Get the show on the road with ShowBiz

By guest blogger Adam Drew

I love teaching people about technology. I love it so much, in fact, that I started making videos to help people get more out of their tech. That’s how my Modern Windows Fan video channel on YouTube was born. But before I could teach others, I had to learn how to make videos and get them online. So I hit the Windows Store and started looking for apps that would help me in my new project. I tried a couple of different video editing apps, but I knew my search was over when I found ArcSoft ShowBiz.

Even prior to that, the term’s status as a lexicon it-kid was heralded in 2012 after Time Magazine declared it one of the “top 10 buzzwords” of that year.
