Transcript of Introduction to video editing
What is video editing?
"Film and video editors watch all the film footage. They decided which parts are not interesting and cut those parts out. They put the most interesting parts of film back together."
Types of video editing

Why should we conduct video editing?
To remove unwanted shots
To choose the best shots
To produce a flow / narrative
To add special effects, grapics, music etc
To come up with a better "style" and "mood"
Video editing is about choosing, coordinating and repairing (cut, trim, etc) shots. Then, the shots are combined and edited (adding special effects, music etc) to built a narrative (story).
In some situations multiple cameras and other video sources are routed through a central mixing console and edited in real time. Live television coverage is an example of live editing.
Live editing is a specialist topic and not covered in this course.
Technically this isn't video editing, it's film editing.
It was the first way to edit moving pictures.
It forms the basis of all video editing.

Linear editing was the original method of editing electronic video tapes, before editing computers became available in the 1990s. Although it is no longer the preferred option, it is still used in some situations.
Linear Editing Configuration
In linear editing, video is selectively copied from one tape to another. It requires at least two video machines connected together — one acts as the source and the other is the recorder.
Traditionally, film is edited by cutting sections of the film and rearranging or discarding them. The process is very straightforward and mechanical. In theory a film could be edited with a pair of scissors and some splicing tape, although in reality a splicing machine is the only practical solution. A splicing machine allows film footage to be lined up and held in place while it is cut or spliced together.
In this method, video footage is recorded (captured) onto a computer hard drive and then edited using specialized software. Once the editing is complete, the finished product is recorded back to tape or optical disk.
With the latest development in digital video technology, non-linear editing also call as "digital editing". As the footages are already in the digital format, the editing process become much easier.
