The description of Video Editing
These lessons concentrate primarily on editing video in Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere Pro, but that doesn't mean they won't be helpful for other editing software. The idea behind having the lessons with both applications is to demonstrate that when you learn one editing application it's pretty easy to learn another. Most of the stuff is the same, and these lessons mainly concentrate on the sorts of things all video editing software can do. We'll get a little application-specific at times, but you'll get an idea of how different applications tackle the same problems. If you want to learn Final Cut Pro or Premiere Pro, that's great, but if you'd prefer to learn other editing software you shouldn't feel like these lessons don't apply to you, too. How Can You Learn How To Edit? I’ve been editing “properly” for a little over a decade and have completed all sorts of projects, including fashion editorial, commercial lifestyle, action sports, photo education, interviews and documentaries. While I kick started my editing career through a 4 day course years ago in Final Cut Pro that my employer at the time paid for, there are far more resources online than when I started. But there is a gap in what you can learn online, unless you’re happy to trawl YouTube endlessly looking for the video that might help you on whatever subject area you might be trying to progress. Enter Paddy Bird and his team. Paddy is a veteran professional editor, with over 15 years of experience in political, science and historical documentary, and TV editing for channels like the BBC, ITV (UK), Channel 4 (UK) Discovery, National Geographic, The Smithsonian Channel, ABC and NBC. This is a guy who definitely knows his craft – an essential requirement if thinking about undertaking what the course has to offer. Not only that, but he’s been teaching editing for a couple of years, so his background is well suited to helping others along their own path and building a curriculum for them to meet their needs.
