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.

4. Fine-tuning

Now you can use effects, titles and image stabilization to smooth the hard edges and to perfect your video.

5. Exporting

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-analyse and compile CPU intensive effects and transitions that are applied simultaneously

2. Break longer videos into several smaller scenes:

Use the Automatic ‘Scene recognition’ feature to split longer videos into individual scenes. This function will analyse recordings for image cuts so that scenes can be identified, saved and arranged in a new order.

3. Use multi-cam mode:

Sometimes several cameras from different angles record the same scene. Multi-cam mode makes putting 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 footage of 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) to import into the destination track with a single click on the down-arrow button. This will save a ton of time when working on larger and more complex projects.

5. Import effects directly from the built-in media pool

With just one click, you can import all templates, effects and music into your timeline.
