The 5 steps of video editing
1. Review the material
Which recordings are good and which ones are unusable? It's a good idea to make a note of the most important scenes and to remove the scenes you don't want to include in your movie editing.
2. Organizing the movie
Divide your movie into sections according to subject. Once you have defined the individual sections for your video, you can assign the scenes to them.
3. The actual video editing
Now that you have completed all the preparatory steps, you can really start to edit a video. Whether you are an experienced video editor or new to video editing software, the first thing you should do is familiarize yourself with your tool, the video editing program.
Now you can use effects, titles and image stabilization to smooth the hard edges and to perfect your video.
Exporting is the last step after editing your videos. You will want to make sure that the image quality is maintained and that the file size stays within acceptable limits.
5 tips for faster video editing results
1. Optimize performance:
- Reduce the frame rate and resolution, or deactivate the plug-ins and effects during playback
- Use proxy files during playback – this will not affect the resolution during export or disc burning
- Use the “Preview rendering” button to automatically pre-analyze and compile CPU intensive effects and transitions that are applied simultaneously
3. Use Multicam mode:
It is common to use several cameras at different angles record the same scene. Multicam mode makes splicing these types of videos together much easier. By simply clicking with the mouse in the preview monitor, you can intuitively edit a video using multiple camera angles for the same scene.
4. Import with precision
- Select your destination track.
- Choose the location on the timeline with the cursor.
- Choose the media (any video, effect or music) you want to import into the destination track by clicking the down-arrow button. This saves a ton of time when working on larger, more complex projects.
