Video Editing

How to Integrate Flutter Video Editor with Banuba SDK

Video editor is a thriving must-have feature of any social media, e-learning, video editing, virtual conferencing and calling, and even e-commerce products. Instagram and TikTok still motivate dozens of vendors to spend fortunes on developing built-in editing capabilities for both internal and external usage.

In turn, Flutter is among the market-leading frameworks to facilitate multi-platform app dev using a single codebase. So, multiple software providers are actively utilizing Flutter to deliver immersive and never-seen-before user experiences. However, from-scratch custom feature development is a pricey and long-run initiative for SMBs and startups which increases the go-to-market period.

Instead, integrating a ready-made Flutter Video Editor through pre-made SDKs is a far more time- and cost-effective solution to avoid spending fortunes of time and funds on tailor-made app dev.

If this resonates with your current business or tech-related needs, this post will guide you through integrating video editing functionality into your Flutter project.

Video Editor SDK: How It Helps Save Funds & Time

AI Video Editing SDK allows you to build a video editor in your app with features like TikTok and Snapchat. Users can tweak their videos with filters, GIFs, text, and music, create animated Stories, change backgrounds, edit aspect ratio for social media and much more.

Apart from native platform support like iOS and Android, our videoeditor SDK is available for cross-platform development with React Native and now, Flutter too.

  • Picture-in-picture (PiP) mode with lots of positions for building highly informative social, educational, or product-related video files without scene changing.
  • >1,000 real-time/post-processing Face AR masks with morphing effects, animated backgrounds, 2D/3D stickers, and trigger-based facial animations for creating purpose-wide video content.
  • Enhanced color correction with lots of pre-made LUT presets and custom filters
  • Tailor-made background removal and changer to deliver privacy-centric video experiences with static or dynamic content
  • Slow-mo and speed-up effects

Why Flutter for Video App Development

Flutter has skyrocketed in popularity in recent years, being now the second most-used cross-platform framework after React Native.

Developers favor it for its ease and versatility. With Flutter plugin, you write Dart code once and use it for every platform. It saves a lot of time and money for development.

Flutter SDK application plugins for editor and player functionality are short in number and most often are limited in functionality. So, we've extended our video API with the Flutter integration sample. With Flutter API, you can build powerful cross-platform apps faster and with less effort.

The key features you can add include:

  • Capture and processing
  • Trimming
  • Camera filters: LUTs, face masks, animation
  • Face beautification
  • Video effects like in TikTok
  • GIFs and Text overlay
  • Music and voice effects
  • Slideshare from photos.
