New Integration Provides Direct Access Between Dropbox and WeVideo, Making it Easier for All Dropbox Users to Manage and Create Professional-Looking Videos
Mountain View, CA, November 5, 2019 - WeVideo, a leading cloud-based video creation platform, today announced a new integration with Dropbox that allows users to seamlessly import video, photo and audio files from Dropbox, edit and enhance in WeVideo, then publish directly to Dropbox and other destinations when finished. Dropbox users can utilize the integration immediately at no added cost. Both Dropbox and WeVideo are cloud-based services, providing flexibility to access the apps anywhere, anytime, on practically any device.
The integration expands the existing partnership between the two companies, now making WeVideo a Premier Dropbox Technology Partner. WeVideo and Dropbox previously partnered within the higher education space, making high-quality video creation more accessible to colleges and universities.
“We’re constantly looking for new ways to help our users navigate their workflows seamlessly,” said Bully Blau, Global VP of Business Development and Partnerships at Dropbox. “Through this integration with WeVideo, we’re enabling web-based video editing, where our users can easily create, share, and collaborate on their content right from Dropbox.”
Now, users can select any video, audio or image file from their Dropbox account and choose WeVideo from a dropdown menu. They are then taken directly to the WeVideo app, where they can trim or edit the clips, and use special effects like slow motion and animation. The finished product is a high-quality, professional-looking video—all at no cost under WeVideo’s included Free plan.
Once the media file is finished in WeVideo, users will receive a notification in Dropbox that the file has been saved back to Dropbox in its original location. The integration eliminates the unwieldy process users would have to take by researching, downloading and opening a separate application to edit or create a high-quality video, not to mention manually uploading the finished file back to Dropbox.
To get even more premium video editing features and benefits, users can upgrade to a paid WeVideo plan. Available plans include unlimited access and use of WeVideo Essentials, a complete built-in stock library with over 1 million videos, images, and music tracks; special effects like green screen, designer motion titles, and much more.
WeVideo’s CEO, Krishna Menon said, “Our mission at WeVideo is to provide easy, intuitive and top-quality video creation tools to everybody, anywhere. We’re thrilled to expand our partnership with Dropbox to eliminate barriers in creating broadcast-quality videos for both Dropbox and WeVideo customers. Now, more than ever, video is a strategic and desired part for business and life and we look forward to working with Dropbox to make video creation better and easier.”
