A highlight of the return to in-person conferences is the SXSW unveiling of axledit, a collaborative video editor available in Free and professional plans.
Austin, TX, USA | March 14, 2022 — The boom in video use for social media and marketing has been paralleled by swift migration to the cloud. As South By Southwest returns for 2022, axle ai is publicly unveiling axledit, a revolutionary new browser-based video editor with integrated collaboration, search, and publishing features, in booth 716, from March 13th through 16th.
Sam Bogoch, axle ai’s CEO, said “South By Southwest 2022 marks the return of the creative community to in-person conferences, and we’re thrilled to be demoing axledit in person for the first time.” It offers a fluid, radically simple browser interface, and user pricing tiers of Free, $10/month and $50/month. Users can sign up directly from the axledit website. Yet it provides a level of power and control previously only available to editing solutions running on laptops and workstations. You can also export your sequences from axledit to software like Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer and Apple Final Cut Pro.

“What makes axledit so intriguing” said industry expert Larry Jordan, “is that it couples a media asset management back-end with a simple video editing interface at the front. While not a replacement for a stand-alone NLE, it makes new kinds of cloud-based video collaboration possible.”
axledit’s unique collaboration features allow not only browser-based review and approval by producers and clients, but also simultaneous editing sessions with a shared view of the current state of the timeline and playback. This capability is especially important in a world where remote work has become not only accepted, but the overwhelming choice of content professionals industrywide.
Other key axledit features include:
* Professional-style timeline with multiple audio and video tracks
* High speed, interrupt-resilient uploads of huge video files
* Effects and transitions
* Powerful sequence versioning
* The ability to directly import stock video content
* Access to axle ai on-premise and cloud media management servers
Direct publishing of edits to YouTube and Vimeo is another standout feature of axledit, allowing creators to manage, edit and publish their content directly to these leading platforms without ever having to download large media files, edit them or upload finished media to the cloud. axledit is available immediately, at www.axledit.com.
