  1. 1. Video Editing (Setting up your Workstation))
  2. 2. <ul><li>Video editing is the process of manipulating and rearranging video shots to create a new work. </li></ul><ul><li>Editing is usually considered to be one part of the post production process </li></ul><ul><li>Post-production tasks include but not limited to titling, color correction, sound mixing, visual effects editing, green screening, etc. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Before you begin any editing project you must define what your goals are: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Remove Unwanted Footage </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Choosing The Best Footage </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Creating a flow in the story and at the same time knowing your workflow as well </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Adding Effects, Graphics, Music to enhance video </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Altering The Style, Pace or Mood of the video </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Giving the video a particular perspective or angle (shot composition) </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Hollywood uses “FILM SPLICING” as a method of editing. It is not called video editing, but Film editing. </li></ul><ul><li>(Linear) Editing-starts with the first shot and works through the last shot. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The Pro to such method that it is relatively simple and trouble free. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The Con is that if you need to go back and re-edit an earlier part of the video, it is nearly impossible to do so. </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>(Non-Linear)-allows you to make changes to any part of the video at any time. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The advantage of using this method is that it is a flexible method, which allows you to make changes to any part of the video at any time. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The disadvantage but worth the hassle is that it is harder to learn, some hardware are incompatible with each other, as well as software. Setting up a workstation can be a challenge. </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>There are two major computer systems out there. The question is are you a Mac or PC person? </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Mac users can edit on imovie using (basic editing application that comes with the initial installation of the Mac computer. </li></ul><ul><li>Professionals use Final Cut Pro 2 (latest version) on </li></ul><ul><li>a Mac computer or the whole Suite that includes other </li></ul><ul><li>compatible applications that enhances the video production value. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Windows user can use windows movie maker (which initially comes with the PC installation)to make basic </li></ul><ul><li>video editing clips. </li></ul><ul><li>Professionals use Avid (used in Hollywood), </li></ul><ul><li>but it’s cost is usually limited to studios or </li></ul><ul><li>those who can afford it’s hefty price tag. </li></ul><ul><li>Intermediary Professionals, user go with </li></ul><ul><li> applications such as Sony Vegas or CS4 </li></ul><ul><li>(Creative Suite 4) that includes Premiere </li></ul><ul><li>Pro 4.0 as its primary video editor. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>Once you decided what application suits your need, then it is up to you to decide how powerful you want your workstation to be. </li></ul><ul><li>How much memory your computer will have will make a big difference in how quickly your computer render video. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>A system that has 4GB of ram is good, but you can still get by with less Ram if you can’t upgrade due to budget constraints. </li></ul><ul><li>Processor and Bus speed determine how effectively a computer can crunch video information. Multiple process system is ideal to go along with the high end video applications like Final Cut and Adobe Premiere. Bus speed determine how quickly information is fed in and out of the processor. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>Now that you know the basics, its time to start editing home movies or that short film your friend or yourself just shot. </li></ul><ul><li>Remember –editing can make a bad video look good, but it can also make a good video look bad. </li></ul>
