Advanced Media Integration: Video Editing Guidelines
When working on a production piece, video editing is an important part of having a successful and fully completed project. No matter how skilled one is when creating a video, there will always be excess dialogue or scenes that need to be trimmed in the final product.
With that said, it’s important you know how to cut your production piece without overdoing it, or making it chronologically confusing to others. After all, if there are editing mistakes in the final version, your audience will definitely notice. With that said, here are some important video editing tips to consider.
First of all, make sure you don’t overdo it on the transitions. They’re certainly a good way to get from one scene to the next, but it’s easy to use too many of them. This is especially true when it comes to the special effects which are used to jump from one scene to the next. You want to make sure that it flows, and doesn’t look awkward.
However, when editing your production piece, you also need to be sure that what you’re trimming doesn’t have an effect on the video’s continuity. This is especially true if it’s a feature-length movie or short film. For example, let’s say there was an important scene with pithy dialogue. However, this dialogue was in reference to a part that was trimmed earlier. It might not make sense to your audience, since it refers to something that’s not even in the final version. You always want to make sure your editing doesn’t affect any important scenes.
