As videos are so much important todays, I believe that everyone must have some knowledge on creating and editing videos for of common tasks required by his personal or business use.

This book has mainly an objective to evaluate some text to speech converters, voice changers, video editors, cartoon animators and video recording and live streaming programs.

As I am Arabic, I gave special importance to look for the best tools that can convert Arabic text to voice with good quality because of the lack of these tools. And I also gave special importance to look for the best tools that can change the voice tune as a lot of people don’t like to make videos with their voice for special reasons. Then I gave quick guide on how to use the two important video editors, VSDC Free Video Editor and Camtasia Studio. Then I gave quick guide on how to use two websites that enable people to create cartoon animation videos in a simple way, https://www.animaker.com/ website and https://www.powtoon.com website. Then I gave quick guide on how to us one of the best animator programs, which is Reallusion Cartoon Animator 4. I explained also how it is possible to make face mockup through Cartoon Animator 4Motion Live 2D Plugin. Then I introduced Adobe Character Animator as alternative program to make face mockup. Finally I explained about one of the video recording and live streaming programs, which is OBS Studio. I mentioned briefly how to setup OBS studio to create livestream video on Youtube and Facebook. At the end, I showed how to use Voki website to create customizable speaking avatars
