Editing Tips

Here are few tips to help you get the most value out of your edit session:

 

Before the Edit Session

1. Label and number all your videotapes, photos, slides, music, etc.

 

2. Review and log the footage you want to use in your project.

  • Rewind your tape and reset the counter to zero.
  • Set your VCR to read out real time (Hours: Minutes: Seconds)
  • Four digit VCR numbers are NOT accurate on our equipment
  • Note the beginning and ending times of each clip you want to use.

 

3. Note the order that everything will appear in the finished video.

 

Example:

Video Memories

 

4. If you want to add narration to your project you can record your voice onto a standard audio cassette and bring it in or you can bring in your script and record it here.

 

5. A TV is wider than it is tall, so if you are going to use photos, horizontal images are better than vertical images. Prints transfer to video better than do slides.
