Introducing Sequence: Browser-Based Video Editing Made Easy

At Shutterstock, we create forward-thinking tools and site features which enable creative professionals, storytellers, and filmmakers to quickly find the best images, videos and music for their projects. Shutterstock Labs is where we share these projects with the world and today, we’re proud to announce a brand-new addition: Sequence.

Sequence is a lightweight, easy-to-use video editing tool which lives entirely within your Chrome browser window. With Sequence, anyone can quickly search through over two million Shutterstock videos and audio tracks, dragging and dropping the files to build a video with ease. Once the video takes shape, it’s remarkably easy to save and share what you’ve created with friends and colleagues.

In addition to working with Shutterstock’s videos and music tracks, Sequence allows users to upload video and audio files of their own – by simply dragging and dropping them into the timeline from their desktop.

Our goal was to make it as easy as possible for anyone to quickly concept ideas, match footage, and share their vision with others, and we hope that Sequence, which originated in a company hackathon earlier this year, finds a place in your workflow. While Sequence is available in Chrome now, we plan to roll the tool out to additional browsers later this year.

So go ahead, dive in, and have fun, and be sure to check back in to the blog for a series of upcoming posts detailing a variety of tips and tricks for getting the most out of this exciting new tool!
