Video Editing Tips for Beginners

“Editing feels almost like sculpting or a form of continuing the writing process” Sydney Pollock.

Video editing is an essential part of content creation as it can make or break the process. But as it is quite technical, it can be pretty challenging for beginners to get to a point where you are able to produce quality content.

Adobe, a software company, conducted a survey which revealed that about 58% of content creators hire professional video editors to edit their videos. It’s also very time consuming as it involves viewing the video a number of times to make sure the right cuts and edits are correct. On top of that, you need a good aesthetic sense and understanding of key elements of a good video.

There are multiple software available in the market for video editing like DaVinci Resolve, Adobe Premiere Pro, Capcut etc. Most famous content producers use Adobe Premiere Pro due to its unique features and high-quality output. Premiere Pro offers a number of tools like advanced color correction, special effects, track-based timeline and audio editing capabilities allowing creators to take full charge of their content. However, learning Adobe Premiere Pro is not an easy task for someone new to the industry.

Technological advancement comes to the rescue here with AI tools like FireCut which make using Adobe Premiere Pro much easier for people with little or no editing experience. This Adobe Premiere Pro plugin has a number of features which make life much easier for a video editor:

1.   One-click Footage Clean up: Remove all silences, filler words and repetitions with a simple click without going through the hassle of reviewing the whole footage multiple times.

2.   Automated Captions: Get AI generated captions in over 50 languages within 5 minutes, transcribed and animated fully inside FireCut, with a bunch of nice additions such as Emojis, Tilts, Wiggle, and very fine control over the transcript.

3.   Zoom cuts: Add depth to your videos with focused zoom cuts on the speaker.

4.   And many more exciting features such as chapter detection, automatic B-roll and automatic podcast editing!

Another cool tip is to use ready-made presets so its easier to use Adobe Premiere Pro for beginners. Many professional editors sell presets designed for Premiere Pro on their platforms and some even provide free basic presets. Additionally, Adobe has recently launched Adobe Firefly, a generative AI tool, which can help editors create completely new content to improve their edits. This can significantly reduce your editing time and help you make better content using Adobe Premiere Pro.

With increasing use of AI in every aspect of life, even the most technical tasks are becoming easier. Where previously, one had to take multiple courses to learn a software, now they can get started in just a few hours.
