I have always experienced that video editing apps are complicated, offer too many features on sight and make it complicated to see what you are editing. Here I used the double-tap action to open the menu that features 4 options for your editing. Each option opens a different set of edits: Text, video framing, beauty and sound. You can close the wheel tapping the X at the centre. On every edition screen you can close the options to see exactly what your video is looking like without any distractions, except on the typing and voice effects. It's worth mentioning that the songs tab is not active until open where you get to a "song search engine". You can also always select the exact second in which you want an effect/text or song to appear on the "sec select" which saves a lot of time. On the sharing I have added different social media tabs but on the plus button you can add any other that you are using which allows direct sharing without necessarily having to save the video first.

Hi Alix, thank you for participating in this week's challenge! I love that you have designed a concept that puts the video first and allows the editing tools to become an overlay rather than taking the user to a new screen. I suggest that you consider putting an edit icon on the first screen rather than depending on people to learn to double-tap to edit. While that could still be a shortcut, it may be used more if there is an easy way to learn how to get into the menu initially. I would also consider where you're placing the primary actions for editing. It seems like you're putting a lot of the content on the top of the screen and that can often be hard to reach with larger phones. I would consider moving it closer to the bottom and on the right side of the screen since that's typically the easiest place for people to reach. Visually I would consider making the buttons and different edit selections bigger. Right now they are a bit small so users with large fingers may accidentally press the wrong one. Lastly, I would consider making anything with white text have a black transparent background so the text always has a high enough contrast even if the video in the background is white. I hope these suggestions help, thanks again for participating!
