What is video editing API?

A video editing API is generally a set of tools that allow third-party applications to access video editing features without interacting with them directly or knowing how they work. Suppose you need to heat up some food in a microwave. You don’t need to know the underlying physics, just press a few buttons (the microwave API), and you’ll get the results you need.

However, sometimes the term “video editing API” is used to describe a flexible software package made for integration with other applications. For example, Banuba Video Editor API is a version of Video Editor SDK that has fewer features out-of-the box but more customizability.
