Why Video Editing?
Think of a video like an essay; after writing the first time around, you go back and edit in order to make the essay better and take out the bad and add in good. Videos must also be edited in order to make sure all the best bits are captured in order to get the utmost attention from the audience. This will effectively portray your message to your viewer, especially when your final product is clean, concise, and enjoyable to watch.
Tips for Editing Videos:
