Are you ready to go behind the scenes with us today? Last time we talked we showed you how we edit photos.
In today’s PluggedIN video we are sharing how we edit our videos using imovie. Plus how we set things up and the equipment we use.
How to edit videos using imovie.
As you will see in the video these are basic editing tips.
If you enjoyed the video, please share with those that need help with editing videos. Thank you.
We’ve come a long way in how we do videos.
And we still have a lot to learn, which we find exciting. We have a lot of fun making videos and editing them.
Basic video editing tips
1 – Use natural light as much as possible
2 – Use any camera at first and over time you can invest in a nicer one
3 – Be aware of sound issues – your surroundings. Look into microphones.
We have: (no affiliation)
Rode VideoMic Pro Compact VMP Shotgun Microphone – we use this one the most
We’ve spent a lot of money on microphones and are still on the look out for better ones.
4 – Have a tripod
5 – imovie is a great place to start with when editing videos. Over time you can invest in nicer editing software or hire someone.
Other equipment we have:
Canon Rebel T31
Sometimes our setup isn’t so nice. Cardboard box anyone? haha
For our recipe videos we do them freestyle. And just recently have hired help for some of them. Thank you Cathryn!
Just like our photography we do basic edits, we don’t spend too much time editing. We like it simple.
- Use whatever equipment you have around your house.
- Keep it simple.
- Learn as you go. Trial and error.
We hope this has inspired you to action in your business or blog using videos.
