Setting the Pace for Your Video with Video Editing
In many ways, a video is incomplete without editing. There may be times when you take a short video for just a few seconds and post it directly on social media. But most of the time, when you’re creating a video, you have to join various scenes together in order to come up with something resembling a story.
And that’s where video editing comes in. Video editing helps you to choose the right scenes and cut them up at the right points to join them into a seamless video. It’s a little like ballet—it looks easy but it’s actually pretty tough.
Pacing Your Video Correctly
At what point do you cut the scene and move on to the next one so that it doesn’t look too rushed or too slow? How do you pace the video correctly? This is a question you need to ask yourself whenever you make a video.
There might even be times when you want the video to look rushed or slow. You may want to give the viewer the impression that things are moving quickly or slowly in the story.
Doing all this takes skill. And an experienced video editor has that kind of skill. They’ve edited scores of videos before and they know just how to cut and paste things together so that you make the impression you were trying to make.
Editing Different Types of Videos
It can actually work to your disadvantage if video editing is not done right. Imagine that you’re watching a love scene in a TV series. Haven’t you noticed how it’s important to pause at just the right points and get the actor’s faces at just the right angle if you want to convince the audience that they’re really in love?
On the other hand, if you’re filming a TED talk, you’ll need to alternate between close-ups of the person’s face and long shots in which you can also see the audience to make sure that the viewer doesn’t get bored of seeing things from the same angle.
A video editor will have the know-how to help you do this and more. As long as you communicate what you’re looking for to your video editor, they will be able to help you to make the right impression with your video.
