1. Choose the Right Software:

The first step in improving your video editing process is to choose the right software for you and your work. They normally offer everything you need to perform standard video edits, but you may prefer one over others for their usability, digital interface, and features.
Top favorites include After Effects, Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer, Final Cut Pro, and DaVinci Resolve, which offers a free and comprehensive Lite version. You may also want to try Lightworks, and Sony Vegas, if you’re looking to try other less-popular yet highly capable alternatives. 


2. Always use a Fast Computer: 

It definitely helps to invest in a faster storage drive (SSD) that will allow you to access your files and software faster, as well as speed up your rendering, loading, and export times. Other things you can do to significantly shorten your editing times is to increase your computer’s memory (RAM) to at least 8GB if you’re going to be doing professional or commercial work, and get the recommended video card and processor for your editing software. It’s also much harder to edit videos effectively on an iPad or iPhone than on a robust desktop or laptop computer.

And don’t forget your monitors either. Setting up a dual monitor will allow you to more easily view, organize, and work with large amounts of footage.

3. Watch Video Editing Tutorials:

Youtube, blogs, and educational websites are full of useful tutorials for creating great video content. Most of the tutorials you’ll find out there are free, which makes them even more accessible. Websites like Video Copilot, Skillshare, and Red Giant Tutorials offer lots of very specific tutorials to help you improve your video content. As you look for tutorials to achieve certain looks and complete specific tasks, target the software version of the program you’re using.


4. Select Good Music:

Don’t just focus on the visuals; it should only be as good as your music. If you’re creating a drama film, for instance, you’ll want just the right songs or instrument to make key moments (where you want to trigger certain emotions from your audience) more effective. Cheerful comedies are okay, but it can also be easy to overdo it with upbeat songs. It can be difficult if you’re doing it on your own.

But before you even think of using just any music, remember that the safest option is to get music from a royalty free music provider. You may be able to find free music, but the best audio usually comes at a price. If you’re doing a professional project, music is usually included in the production budget.

Make sure you’re also using quality video editing head phones to get the best sound out of your footage. 


5. Adding Text and Graphics:

Depending on your film type, you may have to include more text aside from the title, opening/closing billboards (for broadcasting), and film credits. You’ll usually want to keep it simple, with a clean and white sans-serif font that doesn’t grab too much attention. Have them dissolve in and out, and see how it works for your film.

But if you need to add flashy graphics, you can create them using your editing software. Adobe After Effects is a popular choice for creating some of the best motion graphics. If you’ve yet to learn how to make your own by hand, you can always get impressive ready-made After Effects templates from RocketStock.
