Video editing tips

Video Transitions

The most commonly used transitions are fade to black and/or cross dissolve. Most of the other transitions can be more distracting than useful. Stick with fades unless you have a really good reason to use the others.

Hold Shots

Make sure to hold shots long enough that they will look good once edited. For still shots, hold for 5-10 seconds. For moving (panning or tilting) shots hold for 5 seconds before and after the move. This is important for using transitions which cut into the length of your clips.


Using Cutaways & B-roll

B-roll is the term for video footage that establishes the scene, shows detail or just makes the video more interesting. One example of B-roll use is for an interview. You can show what your subject is talking about instead of just showing them talking on camera the whole time. These clips can also be used to cover any jump cuts.

Using Text

Make sure text is on screen long enough to be read by the viewer. Rule of thumb is that its on screen long enough for you to read it twice when played back in real time.
