Editing In The Real World

This week was a huge success for me and I learned a lot about editing. I had to film a video for a different class and edit it together. This proved to be a challenge and I had to learn a lot for this video to come out how I wanted it to. Firstly, I had to crop some of the clips down so they sounded more professional and fit together better. This was easy because I’ve been doing this the entire time I’ve been editing. The next thing that I had to do was add music, which was very easy because I’ve done that before and I know what I’m doing. The next task that I had to do was add a photo into the beginning of the video so I could add text over it. This was also fairly easy because I just had to save a photo and to my computer and import it into the media section of the editing timeline. The last task that I needed to do was add text into the video. Now this may be easy for others, but for me it was the first time that I’ve ever done it so I had to figure it out for myself. I found out that there’s a button that you press that just adds text and you can write whatever you want and extend the time or change the font and many other features. This proved useful and I’m really happy I figured out how to do that. The video turned out great and I’m hoping that my professor thinks so as well.

  1. It is great to see that you were able to take these skills learned in this class and apply them to another. Hoping I will get to do the same at some point!
