There are no shortcuts to video editing. You can’t master it in a matter of time, and there are even cases when you have to address professional video editing services. But, with the right tips, you can cut your time in half or even reduce it to 60 minutes. Want to know about these tips? Here they are…
Software- choose and use wisely!
Your video editing game will start and end on your selection of the software. If you choose outdated software, that won’t take you anywhere. Let me repeat it, that’s not going to take you anywhere. That’s Why I said, Choose your video editing software wisely whether it is a professional or an online video editor. Old fashioned software provides old fashioned tools and is only made for old fashioned people. Be damn sure that you get new features like AI portrait and AR stickers. If you wanna step up the game, you have to rely on a package that provides a bundle of innovative features that match up with the industry requirements. There are hella software available, but I don’t want you to break your bank by getting them. I am sure you aren’t Bill Gates’ son. You are just a miser like me when it comes to investing cash. Don’t worry I can feel you. If you’re just starting, get beginner-friendly software and stick with it- Master it. With Filmora, you will get access right after you purchase it and skyrocket your video editing game in no time.
Work on a reliable hardware
If I ask you to play PubG on the very first computer Charles Babbage invented, you would call me a mad man. Right? You would probably say bro! play it on a heavy phone instead, uhm like a one plus or don’t play at all.
Ironically there you are editing your video on a 5-year-old phone and wishing to be a Grandmaster player in the game. You know what? You’re just watering dead plants.
Video editing requires some insanely awesome hardware. The Software and Hardware combination has to be good. Let me say this in a screaming tone. Invest in a good computer or a tablet to level up your game of video editing. Check with your software, which devices are compatible with it. Google the specs and improve your skills in editing!
Put the frustration at the door and shut it off!
I know, video editing is a tiring process. Been there and done that! If I have to puke the truth out, certain extra things go into the whole process besides skills- Cursing, Shouting at siblings and cursing again. The frustration and exhaustion are real especially if you’ve been asked to do the changes on a repetitive basis. But my friend, Take a leap of faith, and trust yourself- You’ve got it! Kick the exhaustion out of that room and shut the doors. Work done in frustration and anxiety is most of the time dull and middling. Take proper rest, trust yourself, don’t get frustrated too often and see yourself improving at video editing in a wink.
Prepare the presets beforehand
There’s a reason why I am saying such a basic thing- It saves a lot of time(shh)! If you’re working in a particular niche industry, you would require the same effect again and again. Preparing a preset for the outcome beforehand will not only ensure a time-saving process but also minimizes the risk of omitting any critical step.
Watch those tutorials- they are free!
Youtube tutorials are a goldmine! Be a treasurer and utilize them. There are hundreds of thousands of tutorials available, for free on YouTube which you gain benefits from. Every time you watch one, you will learn something new. Even a bit matters a lot when it comes to video editing. You can improve your video editing game in under 60 minutes by doing so. Let’s say, there’s a specific advertisement project that you’re working on. More importantly, learn how to use AI portrait filter and AR stickers. If you do a basic go through YouTube mission on ‘ how to edit advertisement videos – tutorial’, Holy Moly, not only you will have a layout and a blueprint but also by the end of the video you will have tons of ideas and tips and tricks- all Before even starting your OWN project. Imagine How brilliant the outcome will be!
