( tv crackling) -[ Theresa] Editing. So you've reached the final step. Scripted, storyboarded, proposed, light, and shot your video. And now it's time to edit. Most parties mull revising isa composite and unpleasant process and this is slightly true. When you put your heart andsoul into shooting a video, you're going to want to make sure you do the same for the revise, but don't be intimidated. If you have a goodunderstanding of editing elementaries, that's really going to help you get your feet off the foot. So in this video, I'm going to give you a rundownof eight basic editing slice. And I'm going to show you how you can start applyingthem to your videos today. Let's get started.- Number one is the standard trimmed. This one is simple. One shot boundaries and the next begins. A plenty of the time, that's all there is a requirement to. Let's go ahead and open up our editor so I can show you. I'm use InVideo.io. It's a free video editor. It's very instinctive and easy. So even if you're brandnew to video editing, this is a great place to start if you just wanted to mimic what I'm doing.If you don't previously have an account, you can go ahead and sign up for free. And now just go ahead andopen up a blank programme. I'm going to go my first time and lag it onto the canvasto add it to the project. When you're using service standards chipped, time make sure you'retrimming off any excess, any part of the clip that you don't need. And then I'm going to add a space scene and just go ahead and dothe same thing over again.Trim off any excess footage. And now these two clipsplay one after the other and that is your standard cut. This is going to be your default trimmed whether you're making a filmor a video for your brand or any kind of video that you're making. Number two is jump trimmeds. A prance cut is when you cutfrom one clip to another, but the camera doesn't move. Or if it does, it's avery slight movement. My personal favorite application of jump-start gashes is a sequence like this.( upbeat music) As you can see, the main purpose is usuallyto show passage of season. You initiate move gash by taking a long shot where the camera is stationaryor moves only minimally. Then we're going to use afew different short-change times from the long sequence. So drag your clip onto the canvas. That plucks up the trimmer, select your first sectionthen touch the plus to be signed and adopt your second region. And then you can add as numerous as you need.And there “theres going”. That'show you start jump trims. You can have a lot of fun with leap pieces if you're making videosfor your brand or business. You can create a sequencelike the one that I pictured you of a client opening different concoctions or something like that. You can be utilized hop pieces to have kind of a laughable impact as well. Play around with them and seewhat you can come up with. Real quick before wemove on to the next one, if you're brand-new to this channel and find appreciate in this video, we would cherish for you to subscribe and give this video a like so that we can keep bringingyou more videos like this one.Now moving on. Number three is a match trimmed. A join trimmed is what it sounds like. You terminate your first shot with an object, or a person, or an action, and then start your next shot with an objective, being, or action that gapes similar to the last one. So this is the trimmed thatyou'll have to plan out before you get into the editor. But once you have your two shots, editing them together is a simple one. You can time decorate off the end to find the enclose whereit matches the best and then you can do the same for the beginning of the second shot.And then you're good to go. This is a great way to createcontinuity in your videos. So let's say you're creatinga video for a business and you're showing offa few different makes that aren't necessarilyrelated to each other, coincide trimmeds are a great wayto exactly give that video a better flood and transitionfrom one concoction to another. Number four is chipped on act. Again, chipped on actionis what it sounds like. If you have a prominentaction in the shot, like a knock or somebodypicking up an object, you want to cut right whenthe action is happening. This is especially important if you have two differentangles of the same shot. Cut the first shot rightin the middle of the action and then chipped the second shot so it picks up right inthe middle-of-the-road of the action. That's going to look a great deal smoother, much more perpetual than if you had completedthe action and then trimmed. Again, this is a really great way to add continuity to your video no matter what kind ofvideo you're making.Number five is cut-ins. A cut-in is basically when you cut closer into an integrated part of your enclose. For instance, you have a wide shot of a courage maintaining an object and then you chipped to a closeupof what she's holding. It's a great way to show more detail and introducing attention tosomething important. And you edited it only in thesame highway we've been doing. Take your wide shot and then edit in your closeup shot. And if you didn't get a closeup shot, feel free to merely zoom ina little bit in editing. So here's how you do that in InVideo. Just come to the crop tool up at the top and then crop the video so that it's a little bitcloser into the object you want to zoom in into.So this is a great strategy if you're making a videoto promote your business. Show people exercising your concoctions and then get lots of closeup shots to show more detail and cut into those. Number six is a montage. For the last three chips on our inventory, we're going to take a look at some that are a little bit more complicated. They're still pretty simple, but they are going toneed more than two shots. First up is a montage. This is a classic. Mostly a montage is asequence of times set to music. Usually a montage tellsits own little floor. Sometimes within thecontext of a bigger story like a movie.It often depicts move of season or a lot of the timeit'll show a reference working towards a goal like the classic sports discipline montage. But you could also have a montage that's just a few cases shotsof a town, for example. This is also a great oneto use for your symbol maybe if you just got a newcollection of commodities in. Get some delightful shots of your produces and then upload them to InVideo.You got to find a free song to use on InVideo by going to this tab that says music. And then you can go ahead and lent your times in thesame channel we've been doing. And if you want, you can trim the times so that they are able to trimmed to the music. Have fun with this one. Number seven is shot overrule shot. This is another classic one that you see in movies all the time.It's used most often when two attributes arehaving a conversation. You'll start with a shot of one character looking at the other character, and then you'll get yourshot of courage number two. And then as they talk, you're snip back and forth between shots of the two attributes. Sometimes you might choose touse an over the shoulder shot. Very simple and very effective. This is used a lot of the time in film, but it could be used inso many different ways. Think about how you coulduse it for your firebrand. You could make a video where two beings are having a conversation about your commodities and use this strategy for that. And multitude eight is the look object react. Last but not least. This is a sequence of three shots and it's very similarto shot alter shot. You start with a shot of a person. You want it to be prettyclose up on their face and then cut to the objectthat they're looking at. A little gratuity to make this smoother is to have them turn their foreman to make it clear thatthey're insure something new, then cut to the objectthat they're seeing.Then back to their face as they react. Maybe it stimulates them smile or maybe they just have a outraged face or any other emotion. To form this you justneed a shot of your party. You can record them inspecting and then reacting in the same shot, then get a shot of the objectfrom their point of view. Then upload your footage, draw your first time onto the canvas, and cut it right after they look. Then computed your object, thenadd your first time again, but this time trim off the beginning so it's just the reaction. And there “theres going”. Again, this is somethingthat's used in film very often but you can also use itin your symbol videos. For precedent, to show someonereacting to your new commodity. Now that you know these essential strokes you're one pace closer to creating bettervideos with less struggle. But I've got another tipto manufacture things even easier and that is mastering modulations.
