In a video production, it’s often the minor touches that have the most impact. They’re easy to miss, and most viewers probably couldn’t spot or pick them out for you. But they’re the things that can mean the difference between a viewer liking your video or finding it a bit amateur or annoying. In this video, Justin Odisho shows us 5 of his simple editing tricks to give your video that extra bit of production value.
Making the transition from stills to video can be quite daunting at first. There are so many new things to learn and try. Things that fill us with both excitement and dread. Not least of which is editing. There are so many editing applications out there now, but the popular editor of choice is still Premiere Pro. If you’ve never used it before, though, it can feel pretty overwhelming.

If the price is the only factor stopping you from diving into the world of serious video editing, there we have some good news. Many Hollywood-level post-production tricks can be performed by means of free software. Here we have 5 programs available at zero cost and technically capable of competing with some features of Premiere Pro or Vegas.

The Gnarbox (pronounces narbox) comes with an impressive promise. It will provide editing, backup, and preview for your videos (and stills) with no laptop while you are on the go.
We chatted with Will Africano, COO and co-founder of the Gnar box at Photo Plus Expo and got a glimpse of the device. If the Gnarbox will live up to the hype they created, this box is probably going to be in everyone’s kit.
VSCO has been allowing photographers to edit their photos for a while now, and now they’re introducing a new feature. From now on, the users will be able to edit videos as well. You can apply all those stylish filters, and color grade the footage. Although, the feature is available for free only for a limited time, in the trial version.
I make a lot of screen recordings that I need to edit quickly. With someone who doesn’t have a lot of video experience, I did my best to learn the basics of Premiere. Being that it was a foreign program, there wasn’t much familiarity. About the same time, I came across this video from Scott Kelby that showed me it was possible to edit video in Photoshop. It has most of the basic tools you’d need, and you use adjustment layers for grading!
Well, there’s a new version of Adobe Photoshop Elements, as well as Adobe Premiere Elements. The 2018 versions of both come with some rather neat upgrades. There’s also new Adobe Elements Organizer 2018, which features an “Auto-Curate” facility to help pick your best photos for you.
While many have already jumped on the Photoshop & Lightroom CC package, Elements still has its place. Not everybody needs all the features of full blown Photoshop. And not everybody wants to tie themselves into a subscription contract, either. And once you add Premiere Pro into the mix, that subscription gets expensive really quickly. Not ideal for those who just want to make quick family snaps and movies.
We all make noob mistakes when we’re new to something. That’s why we make those mistakes, we’re noobs. While most of us try to avoid them now, who can honestly say they’ve never made hideous bevelled text in Photoshop? Or added a page curl to a document? Well, the same is true with video editing.
While learning editing, there’s a lot of things we try, because we think they look (or sound) cool. Then a few months later, we realise just how wrong we were. This video from Aputure talks about the 5 beginner editing mistakes that pretty much everybody makes at some point, and why you should avoid them.
When it comes to video editing, there’s more than one way to do any given task. It doesn’t matter whether it’s organising your media, picking your selects, or assembling everything together on a timeline. And everybody has their own way. But when you’re new, learning from others, finding your own way can be a long, slow process.
In this video from TravelFeels, Matti Haapoja talks to us about his YouTube video editing workflow. He covers his complete workflow from organising his files to outputting the final render, and all the steps in between.
