Video Editing Top Tips

Need some help getting the best results from you moving making efforts? Take a look at these top tips for some ideas.

  1. Invest in a tripod to reduce camera shake. Even digital video cameras with picture stabilization will not elimate camera shake.
  2. Avoid using too many different wipe effects between scenes. These will distract your viewing audience's attention.
  3. If you are shooting a live event keep the camera rolling all the time, even when changing between different shots. This will ensure that you do not miss a second of the action and gives you a continuous sound track to work with.
  4. When shooting a live event take some background shots (e.g. the surrounding scenery, the audience etc.). These can be cut into you final video to maintain time continuity or to break long sequences.
  5. Before you start shooting, draw a storyboard. Think about how scenes will fit together and the sequence that things will happen in.
  6. Keep a copy of you final edited movie in the highest possible quality. Ideally you will have a camcorder with DV-In capability and can store your final result back onto DV tape.
