Video editing is just as important when you’re on-camera as when you’re off. Here’s how to do it so that your message lands with far more authority than if you just upload the raw footage with just the ends snipped off.

Let’s look at timing, something people think they already understand, and so they don’t pay much conscious attention to improving it.

But when they do, the results can be pretty amazing. That’s why we start here. It’s one of the easiest things to improve and gives you the biggest bang for your buck!

      Wow! One of your best videos, Steve. Lot’s of good information delivered in a clear, easily understood way. Can’t wait for the next one. But you will be posting the recipe for Chicken Vesuvio, right?

      • Steven Washer

        But of course. It is a rather hot dish, evidently 🙂

      You had me at “This is why we can’t have nice things!”

      Thanks for the hot tips and big laughs!

        Thanks for the nod, Michelle. And I hope you get nice things. 🙂

      I take it that you don’t like loud,rapid swooosh! sounds with each text entry!! Or, multiple, rapid flash frames imitating a straight cut? That seems to be the ‘norm’ now days …totally abandoning all rules of good editing. But, I guess I (and you) are just too old. LOL

      • Steven Washer

        Ha! Well, evidently I am not above using swooshes to make my point, as seen above. 😉

    • Mel

      Visual swooshes are fine, it’s the geeky SFX that accompany them.
