5 Video Editing Tips

1. Film multiple takes. This first tip should actually happen before you start editing, but it’s important to the video editing process. Filming multiple takes of your video and in clips will give you options to piece together the perfect video with the right tone, voice and lines you want to use.

2. Go through each clip. Once you have uploaded all of your files, you need to go through each one and decide which clips fit your message and video tone the best. Then you can input them into your video timeline.

3. Keep your story in mind. No matter the type of video you’re creating, it’s supposed to convey a message to your viewers. As Caleb Ward says in this Premium Beat article: 

Editing is so much more than simply cutting footage. It’s an opportunity to take your audience on a journey. Whether you’re editing a complex narrative film or simply putting together a corporate video, there is a deeper story being told.

One of the most important video editing tips, keep your story in mind.

4. Know your Cuts. There are many different ways you can put together a video. Understanding the feeling, action or motivation you’re hoping to convey will help you determine which cut is right for your video.
