Useful Video Editing Applications

  • Ryan Vachon


There are a large number of basic editing tools that come standard with most VEPs. The applications for these devices are limitless. Identifying your favorites editing tools and practicing them is part of learning how to use VEPs. This chapter jump-starts this learning process. There are a number of more common and practical applications for producing specific results. It makes sense to take the mystery out of how to make them happen. We begin with the insertion of photos into a film, progress to simple animations, and end on methods for piecing together interviews to build a complete story. Knowing how to apply a sequence of techniques for explicit outcomes will save you time and headaches. The individual tools for executing these measures, such as fade transitions, have many more uses than is described. Hopefully, the telling of these applications will provide you with seeds for building more personalized effects.
