- Trim And Organize Your Video In Clips
While it may seem easiest to just do an entire video all at once, this can turn the process into an arduous task or even ruin your entire video when you are interrupted or you make a mistake with your speech. Video clips that are smaller are easier to edit and then merge into a single well-formatted video.
It is possible to also trim the ending or beginning of the clips, which leaves more space to readjust your settings or your camera or make any required changes to your workspace or script without the need to restart your videos from the beginning.
- Export To YouTube
Video editing software happens to be a lot more advanced when compared to YouTube’s editor. You will also be able to trim and merge along with adding transitions, effects, and overlays that we will discuss in more detail later on. With YouTube, you can upload files under 20 GB.
You can also edit your videos as much as you want in these formats, then export it into YouTube, where you can then publish the video. Uploading and exporting may take a bit of time, but your video quality will improve immensely and the effort and time you took are going to show.
- Vary Your Shots
Try different angles while you are shooting rather than keeping your camera fixed. This might not work with all your videos, but it is important to keep your viewers engaged while they watch your videos, especially if you want them to watch to the end, and when you want them to return for more. Unless you are talking about something extremely important, watching someone talk for over 10 minutes without the camera moving will grow boring or old fast.
If your channel is personal and you like talking to an audience, think about mixing the angles up with a few shots that you take around town, you sitting down, and other day-to-day activities. Vlogging involves a lot more than just looking into the lens of a camera for the duration of the video.
- Effects And Transitions
When you edit a video that contains multiple parts, the use of effects and transitions can impact significantly to the video’s overall quality. Whether the videos are taking place across various settings or you transition between different discussion topics, transitory effects will show thought and professionalism. The majority of the video-editing software options come with built-in transitions that you are able to use on the sides along with adjusting them down to a second. Viddyoze has gotten a lot of positive press of late for its ability to create quality 3D animations, logos and outros – read this Viddyoze review to get an idea of what it offers.
- Use Annotations
The YouTube annotations feature provides a way to link to another website or video in your video without having to disrupt the playback. You are able to choose when this appears, whether it is captioned or not, and how long it should last. When a link appears that links to social media profiles or to your website while you are mentioning it offers an easy and quick way for your viewers to click on the link and follow other sites of yours.
