A career as a video editor is an exciting possibility for those interested in working on television shows, movies, advertisements and other media.
Landing a job in the industry takes skill, networking and expertise with the video editing software in which you’ll be spending most of your work day. This list covers a few different video editing software packages that are available, from the point of view of a student who is looking to become a professional editor.
Not all of the software listed will be used as a professional, but it’s a great way to get started and will let you branch out into more advanced editing suites.
If you’re using other Adobe CC programs, such as After Effects or Photoshop, you can easily move your workflow from program to program thanks to how integrated Adobe has made all of their applications.
For an aspiring professional video editor, this is a nice package to get started with before moving on to Premiere Pro or another industry-standard program.
You wouldn’t use Premiere Elements on a professional production, unless it was a personal project you were planning to make money off of, but the concepts are applicable to more professional systems and therefore provide a valuable entry-level training ground. Multi-GPU support lets you render your creations in a timely manner, and the ability to mix up to 100 different tracks lets you combine a lot of footage into your final piece.
Some small indie productions might use PowerDirector in their pipeline, and you can always use it for projects you’re doing by yourself. Free is often the right price if you’re a student, so that’s one reason to consider Free Video Editor over the other programs listed here.
The system I learned on in school, was called an ImMIX video cube, it cost tens of thousands of dollars and was less powerful than any of the video editing software programs outlined above. Technology has come a long way, but one thing remains an industry standard, knowing how to edit video is a necessary skill that is always in demand.

Here you'll learn about hottest apps & software, visit top destinations on the Net, and laugh at our funny discoveries. A behind-the-scenes look at how we at RocketJump went about creating the biggest, most ambitious short films we'd ever attempted. From 2009 to 2012, Freddie Wong and Brandon Laatsch brought you a potpourri of action-packed radness every week! The truth is, there aren’t millions of potential cut points – there are only a few right ones, and finding those moments to cut is simply a matter of approaching the material openly and reacting honestly to the emotional content before you. For the editing process to be truly emotional and reactionary, you have to edit at the speed of thought. To do this, you have to know your editing program inside and out, you have to tailor that editing program’s keyboard shortcuts to your own preferences, and you have to constantly reexamine your process and ask “Can I do this faster?
Recently, we underwent a post-production change from a Final Cut based post workflow to an Adobe Premiere based one. Therefore, you should center the majority of your most used key commands on the left half of the keyboard. Next, examine what commonly performed actions require multiple keystrokes and mouse movements to accomplish and see if you can’t do it all in a single go. Here’s my favorite example, and one which will literally save you hours of time over the course of your editing career – zooming.
In Final Cut, I see a lot of people click the magnifying glass tool, and then click on the timeline to zoom, and then click the arrow tool to return.
Final Cut allows you to bind a key to “Zoom in on playhead” and Premiere calls it simply “Zoom In.” Hitting that key will start popping you into the timeline, which is no problem because when do you ever need to zoom in on the timeline at a spot that isn’t right where your playhead is? Reviewing the timing a cut is simply a matter of backing up one cut and then hitting play (A, then Space).
With those simple rebindings, you bring a majority of editing actions into the immediate reach of your left hand, which will allow you to move faster, edit more efficiently, and turn in a more cohesive end product in a shorter amount of time.
At nearly every VR related conference I’ve been to someone either on stage or in discussions steadfastly claims: You can not edit in VR. When an expert says that you can’t edit in VR what they usually mean is that the standard film language for shot types: establishing shot, close up, etc, have no easy analog in VR. Now that I have thoroughly convinced you that VR editing in a thing, let’s talk turkey. You might notice that nearly every filmic shot type is defined by its relationship to the main subject being recorded.
This makes the editing and cinematography of VR  less the manipulation of cameras and frames and more as the choreography of attention.
And there are roadmaps to teaching and assessing physical information from somatic educators of all kinds: dance and fight choreographers, basketball coaches, music teachers, yoga instructors, they all have their systems and orders.
This blog is exclusively dedicated to the trials, tribulations and successes of Indian Freelance Writers and the art of weaving words. If you thought editors are those who just love picking on other people’s mistakes, you may be right.
Another very crucial thing an editor often forgets is that it is ok to leave a piece as it is when it has the essence of what needs to be conveyed (of course, correct grammar being a given). About Nandini: Nandini is an engineer-turned-writer, possessive bibliophile and a travel junkie. He has published three YA novels in The Storyteller’s Quest series: The Reaches, The Keeper’s Daughter and The Starless Square.


For larger projects at high resolutions, you can also take advantage of all the GPUs your system has for increased rendering time, including real-time rendering.
Many of the plugins you can use with Premiere Pro or After Effects work here as well, and if you’re more concerned with improving your skills first before learning an advanced program, Premiere Elements is a perfectly valid environment to do so in. You can jump in and start editing your first project in no time, without the UI overwhelming you with choices and features.
It is more advanced and feature-rich than many consumer packages, but it isn’t quite at the level of full-on professional video editing software like Adobe Premiere Pro or Avid Media Composer.
This is a nice program for students to learn because it can output more professional looking videos than some of the other consumer-level programs. For bigger companies, especially those working on movies and television shows, you’ll probably be using a more advanced program. It offers a relatively simple user interface (UI) and supports most video and audio formats. If you’re just starting out and want to get a grasp of the basics, this is a perfectly capable program for that purpose. In a few years the program could become more advanced and stable, but for now treat it as a learning experience only.
At the time, it was cutting edge and CNN was changing over from tape-to-tape editing to non-linear edit bays all connected via a network and digital playback system. For some people, the millions of potential cut points in an edit is daunting – it’s easy to lose track of the edit and zero in on the exact “right” cuts, trying to pluck order out of the infinite. You can’t be deciding a cut point, and then breaking your focus by clicking around your program to select the tools to drag your footage into to the right place. Both programs have their upsides, but the fundamental fact of the matter is that Apple is making way more money selling iPhones and iPads, and their heart just isn’t in the pro apps world anymore. It should help you zip around your timeline much faster, and save you a lot of time by shedding unnecessary mouse movements and keystrokes. However, the principles I’m outlining should apply to any editing program where you can edit your keyboard shortcuts.
I’d bet most of you have your left hand with your index finger over the ‘F’ key, on the left side of the keyboard, with your right hand on the mouse.
It does you no good to have your left hand bouncing around all over the place (or even worse, needing to hold down a modifier key like Alt or Shift while your right hand moves away from the mouse to hit another key).
This allows you to bounce around your timeline significantly faster than simply JKL shuttling allows.
You should discipline your editing to one or two tracks of video at MOST (in most situations), and using proper editing tools like Slip edits to fine tune that cut from that point forward. Sure, we don’t have a codified language for the VR video editing canon yet, but can you give us a minute?
Close up, medium shot, low angle, long shot, they all generally define how much of the subjects body in visible in frame.

To do a good editing job, you as an editor need to have excellent knowledge of the subject.
She loves collecting random bits of information about any place she visits, and weaving a story out of it. It has a lot of advanced features that take some time to learn, and aren’t always applicable to small projects.
As you get more comfortable though, there are more advanced options available if you want to learn them.
It has a lot of features which have automatic modes to get nice looking effects and transitions without having to fine-tune all of the little details. It also has built-in special effects editing, so you don’t need to use another program like After Effects during the creation of school and personal projects. Nothing is overly complex however, and the automatic modes are great when you’re just getting started.
You can even create some nice looking videos that rival those of higher end programs, sans the fancy effects and finely-tuned little details. Other programs will do something like Command+[ or Command+] to zoom in and out of a timeline.
There are already plenty of videos hanging around with plenty of editing in them, but it took years and hundreds of films to develop from the blockbusters 1890s, static one takes of trains arriving and people walking, full of onscreen movement but during which the camera never moved.
But VR, in much the same way participatory theater works depend on the unique but guided actions of an audience member, VR pieces take as their core mechanic the action and position of the body.The audience is not a viewer but a wearer, the content is not seen but worn. Our body language and the volume of space our positions occupy change not only how others see us but also how confident or anxious we feel. When I reach down a grab the camera in a piece shot on the Ricoh Theta at least some of the audience will feel that I just grabbed them. In a well taught class there is an opening or scene setting phase in which participants mentally transition from the world outside to the yoga mat, usually involving brief storytelling or participatory music. When a writer turns in a piece, you will need to understand what aligns with the publication’s requirements and what changes you will need to make. I generally edit as I go along and then come back and edit again several times, each time looking at a different aspect of the work. It has good audio editing controls as well, if you’re on a budget and can’t afford to use a standalone audio editing program.


It is one of the most popular video editing software systems on the market, and for good reason. Like a sculpture, a good edit happens by roughing out the overall shape of the piece and then refining.
That way, you have every tier of movement all controllable with your left hand – cut to cut, one second (or 5 frames) at a time, and then a single frame at a time. It meant “dark chamber,” and it used a tiny pinhole of light to project an image of the world outside onto a flat surface opposite the hole.
I’m not claiming every VR experience need to follow this exact format, unless you know you want to make VR yoga classes, but viewers should be able to follow along with any immersive experience with the knowledge that their somatic experience has been considered and the content knows what it’s doing. Without a good editor, an article or publication will likely end up half-baked, and nothing ruins a good read like bad editing does. When you’ve decided to go ahead, decisions need to be taken regarding keeping sources anonymous, or where you should post the piece. Premiere Pro can handle all types of video inputs and outputs, including full HD and 4K+ resolutions.
It can handle an unlimited number of video and audio tracks, something many of its competitors can’t do. When your uploading process is completed, YouTube offers 3 options of thumbnails by default. You have before you every shot available, and the story is hewn from that raw material one decision at a time.
That flat frame and its ability to crop the world into two dimensional chunks has been with the camera ever since. Dance has been until now been the primary artistic medium of somatic information, but with wearables and head mounted displays feeding back an ever increasing stream of body specific data, creators can now consider the body of the audience, not just the body of the performer. Bodies curled inward from a day spent hunched in the driver’s seat of a public bus or lopsided from the weight of a child carried on one hip are slowly reminded of the existence of joints and spines.
Because as a former professional dancer I can tell you: somatic mediums are hard on the body if approached unconsciously. It also has a movie generation feature which will automatically put together your tracks, if you don’t want to fiddle with the details. Recent decisions by some in the field to stick close to hardcore gamers, a timid if unsurprising move to snag the only audience thought willing to spend $600 on launch day, is bias enough. If this is true, at least in so far as it can be trusted axiomatically in this argument, it means that VR video recording devices are fundamentally not cameras. As heat is built this phase slowly ramps toward higher and higher intensity movements and positions, breaks are had, intervals of high and low are alternated through, and then when the time is nearly up the ramps flows back toward slow cooling stretches and breathing. In case your account is not verified, you can either use default thumbnails or verify it by following these steps:Click the ? This entire format is often closed with a reference to the start, a communal sound and a thank you and a moment of silence before returning to the outside world.
To do this, choose Add custom thumbnail and select an image from your local drive.Add advanced video detailsApart from title, description and tags, there are some more settings to choose. Keep abreast of latest technology: Can you imagine staring at the computer screen wondering what you’re supposed to do? In case you want your video to be available only on YouTube, deselect Allow embedding option. It’s a little hard to believe, but a lot of editors are still not comfortable with computer software and tools that they need to use for their daily jobs.
Now, when someone tries to paste your video on a site, all the viewers will be redirected to YouTube to watch it.One more important thing is Age restrictions. Yes, technology does change before you blink twice, but you need to make an effort on an ongoing basis to keep pace. You can also Stabilize your video image if necessary.For those who want to control everything, there are manual settings for Contrast, Color Temperature, Saturation and Fill Light.
You can make your videos 1x, 2x, 4x or 6x faster or 1x, 2x, 4x, 8x slower.Trim and rotate YouTube videoIn case your video contains ads or any parts that you want to cut, use the Trim option in Enhancements. To open the new editor, click Try the YouTube Video Editor at the bottom of the Enhancement page. To select an uploaded video click on the Camera button and then on the + sign.If you have an audio track that doesn’t violate YouTube Policy, you can drag-n-drop it to a corresponding filed. Alternatively, you can click on a note sign and choose a track from YouTube collection.The YouTube Editor offers you to add transitions between your videos. To add a transition, you just need to drag it to the timeline of the left.To make your video look more professional, don’t forget to add a title at the beginning. Then click the a button to choose a position for your title.Note that all these changes as well as trim and rotate options work well only if you have a stable Internet connection.
