Video Editors are essentially platforms where people process videos. Post-processing is an important aspect of any kind of videography. On these platforms, people can redesign and edit raw footage to create an end product that is appealing and serves a purpose. With every smartphone coming with decent shooters, the demand for photo and video editors are going up since making videos/films are becoming affordable for a large mass of people.
Video editing can be broadly classified into two techniques: Linear Video Editing and Non-Liner Video editing. Let us understand the difference between linear and non-linear video editing. Linear Video Editing is when a few parts of an original video are extracted to create a new video with just those parts. This method was used more in the past and is no less relevant. Today, we use another technique, the Non-linear Video Editing method, which is opening the original video on a Video Editing platform and then creating a completely new version of it. This may include inserting new parts, deleting some parts and rearranging others, as necessary.
There are three stages of editing involved in the process, namely Initial Assembly, Rough Cut, and Final Cut. Initial Assembly is when the raw footage is collected and arranged in the order they would like to be showcased in the final product. Rough Cut is the most complex stage as all relevant changes are involved here. In this stage, the videos can be trimmed, new titles and graphics may be added, effects can be incorporated and audio tracks may be altered. Lastly, in the Final Cut stage, final adjustments are made to the video to create the end product.
For enhancing video quality and improving low-resolution videos, there is enough capable software in the market. To improve the look and feel of the video, color correction and adjustments can be done followed by editing light, highlights, and HSL parameters. The premium ones and a few free ones have the option to digitally stabilise the video which comes in handy if you have a shaky one. The background noise reduction feature has become a norm these days in video suite tools and elimination of unwanted background noise does enhance the experience of the viewer. Digitally upscaling video resolution can also be helpful in certain scenarios though they lack the details of a video shot in a high resolution. With Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects, you can play with the sequence preset and change the frame size. Free alternatives like Vidmore and Handbrake also offer upscaling video resolution features. Though they do not have the flexibility of premium ones, they are much easy to use.
Among all the several Video Editing Tools and Softwares available, Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, Avid Media Composer, and Lightworks Softwares are considered the best among professionals. This software are the way to go if you planning to master video editing and even make a career out of it. But they need a lot of dedication to learn and comes with a high price tag. For example, the subscription rate for Adobe Premiere Pro is priced at 20$ per month.
Not all customers can afford such hefty prices and not everyone’s looking to learn software thoroughly to be able to edit videos.
In such cases, people try to look for more Pocket-friendly options. MeVero’s Video Editing Tool is one such platform that can cater to the needs of casual video editors. This tool is available online and has a subscription option. One must pay a minimum fee to subscribe to this editor, for a given time period, and then can use the tool anytime, according to their convenience. It is also convenient for people who are looking to make basic personal videos or short advertisements because you can unsubscribe any time when it is not required anymore.
It is a common question that why do people have to buy a tool instead of using free options online. The answer to which is — people often use editing applications or software to not only make certain changes to any video but also be able to store the project on a cloud where it is always available. This enables them to access their file as and when required, and guarantees they do not lose it. These options might not be available on a free platform which is why people must resort to the paid versions. Similarly, companies might have to make a video based on the precise requirements of a particular client which includes tasks that are only possible on advanced editing platforms. Also, paid tools understandably give better results. So when someone is editing a video for a particular purpose, they must use the best available option to provide the best end product.
