About This Course
The art of manipulating, rearranging, and organizing videos is called video editing. Often the goal of video editing is to create a new work. The step of editing videos is considered a part of the post-production process. Post-production tasks consist of sound mixing, color correction, titling, etc. People in non-professional settings usually refer to all their post-production work as editing. Opting to be nosy in getting your hands on the terminology is a decision we leave on you! In the following article, we choose to be reasonable and feasible in using the word “editing”. Here we mean any of the terminologies mentioned below as “editing”.
- Adding or removing sections of audio clips or video clips
- Applying filters, color correction, and other enhancements.
- Creating transitions between clips.
The Goals of Editing:
We all edit videos and images almost all the time. The reason, motive, or perspective varies for each of us, and so does the editing approach. The approach changes as per the desired results. The goals of video making should be defined clearly. The aim behind editing can be any of the following;
Choose the best footage
The art of choosing only the best shoot for the final editing is how we choose the best footage for video editing.
Remove unwanted footage
The simple task of removing the flawed parts of the videos from the final chosen video is how we take out unwanted footage.
Create a flow:
The goal of every video is distinct. Editing gets done to ensure that the purpose of each video for which it got created gets fulfilled. This step is also known as creating a flow.
Add effects, graphics, and music:
Adding visual appeal to your content is also made possible through the art of editing. This fun part adds extra elements to the video to make it more impressionable.
Alter the style, pace, or mood of the video
The editor who knows his job well will add the burst of needed emotions and preferred mindsets in the video through editing. Techniques like mood music and appealing effects can accelerate a good impact on the audience.
Give the video a particular “thought”
The video gets edited to promote a particular thought or shape a specific viewpoint.
