This week we learned about editing video. It was interesting for me to pick up a few new skills because since I was little I have been editing small short videos on iMovie. Now that I have moved to more professional equipment and software due to this class, it amazes me how many things you can do.
We discussed the difference between transitions.
- Crossfade: (in sound or movie editing) make a picture or sound appear or be heard gradually as another disappears or becomes silent.
- Straight cut: A basic cut; Shot A abruptly ends and Shot B abruptly begins.
We talked about the use of lower third super.
I am excited to use the filming techniques we learned last week and put it all together. I have always loved editing and making a finished product, so I am happy we are to this point. Here is my short 30 second video clip I made about the Flying Cow. They are a small t-shirt printing company located in downtown Columbia, Missouri. This video gives a short explanation about the process of producing a shirt.
