    Video editing Editing: Process of selecting, arranging,

    and shortening scenes. Must decide needed shots, effects, sequence.

    Most now are nonlinear editing systems.

    timeline. Does not have to stay in order.

    Editing techniques

    Key: two-source effect where a foreground image is cut into a background image and filled back in with itself. (Example: chroma key : cuts a given

    color out and replaces it with another visual.)

    Aesthetics of editing

    Content and program flow Pacing Continuity Scene transitions

    Content and program flow

    Contextual flow of the program. The flow of ideas in a program is

    normally determined by the script. Editor has discretion in some instances.

    Speed or timing or rhythm of a program.

    To maintain interest, pacing must be brisk.

    Instructional use of television requires that the audience be given sufficient time to absorb new information.

    Continuity Each shot (edit) within a scene must connect to the shots preceding and following it.

    Scene transitions: Cuts vs. effects

    Cuts: simplest, cleanest and most unobtrusive transitions available.

    Dissolves: program changes. Examples, changes in time, location

    Special effects: wipes and other techniques, mainly digital effects

    Editing In the camera Could be all you need: A quick interview

    or tour of a place that brings the person or location to your audience

    Takes a little prior planning If a tour, perhaps coordinate how youll travel

    through the area Tip: Try starting the angle of each new scene

    a little differently than the shot that precedes it If an interview, confirm your audio is good and

    consider ambient noise or loud areas.

    Editing The art of putting it all together: Good

    editing is helped by good planning. How complex of an editing program?

    Very basic to very powerful programs available

    What features do you really need? Software can be fun, or hard, to learn Do you have time to learn new software? Can your computer run the software?

    Editing - Software Considerations:

    Relatively easy to learn and use Do you need it to do more than the software that

    comes with shoot-and-share cameras? Can it easily trim and edit video? Add titles and effects? Good, easy-to-follow tutorials? Demo available? Customer support? Community forum?
