We wanted to let you know that the Video Editor (youtube.com/editor) and Photo slideshows will go away on September 20th, 2017. We ve seen limited usage of these features, so we re retiring them to focus our efforts on building new tools and improving on other existing features.

YouTube says that the two tools were the least used features as so are being discontinued. The company also mentioned that users who have some project that is ongoing in the Video Editor have two months to wrap it up. However, apart from this, other tools in the Video Manager will be available. Users can continue to upload videos with edits such as trimming, blurring, and filters. Apart from trimming, blurring, and filters; YouTube is also keeping audio library, end screens, cards, subtitles, sound effects, and quick fixes. YouTube’s quick fixes include- stabilising, contrast, slow motion, saturation to name a few.

Further, YouTube guarantees that videos that have been published already won using the Video Editor will not be affected. There are also many free and paid third-party editing tools available if you re looking for new editing software, the blog further read.
