What is Video Editing?

Video editing is the process of manipulating and rearranging video shots to create a new work. Editing is usually considered to be one part of the post production process — other post-production tasks include titling, color correction, sound mixing, etc.


What is Video Editing?

Many people use the term editing to describe all their post-production work, especially in non-professional situations. Whether or not you choose to be picky about terminology is up to you. In this tutorial we are reasonably liberal with our terminology and we use the word editing to mean any of the following:


What is Video Editing?

Rearranging, adding and/or removing sections of video clips and/or audio clips.Applying color correction, filters and other enhancements.Creating transitions between clips.


The Goals of Editing

There are many reasons to edit a video and your editing approach will depend on the desired outcome. Before you begin, you must clearly define your editing goals, which could include any of the following:


The Goals of Editing

Remove unwanted footageThis is the simplest and most common task in editing. Many videos can be dramatically improved by simply getting rid of the flawed or unwanted bits.


The Goals of Editing

Choose the best footageIt is common to shoot far more footage than you actually need and choose only the best material for the final edit. Often you will shoot several versions (takes) of a shot and choose the best one when editing.


The Goals of Editing

Create a flowMost videos serve a purpose such as telling a story or providing information. Editing is a crucial step in making sure the video flows in a way which achieves this goal.


The Goals of Editing

Add effects, graphics, music, etcThis is often the "wow" part of editing. You can improve most videos (and have a lot of fun) by adding extra elements.


The Goals of Editing

Alter the style, pace or mood of the videoA good editor will be able to create subtle mood prompts in a video. Techniques such as mood music and visual effects can influence how the audience will react.


The Goals of Editing

Give the video a particular "angle"Video can be tailored to support a particular viewpoint, impart a message or serve an agenda.


The Adobe Premiere Workspace

The screenshot on the next slide shows the default workspace. This workspace can be customized in many ways — you can rearrange the panels and use specialist panels for different tasks (audio mixing, titles, etc). For now, we will stick to the default workspace.


Adobe Premiere CC Workspace


The Adobe Premiere Workspace

This workspace is divided into 5 panels & 5 tabs that we use:The project panel, where you store all the elements which make up your edited video (video clips, audio clips, graphics, titles, etc).The monitor panel

, where you view video clips and the result of your edits.


Media/Effects Browser

, which allows you to choose media to edit and SFX to add to the timeline.


timeline panel

, where you arrange the elements of your video in the desired order.


tools panel

, where you can select various editing tools to use in the timeline.


Adobe Premiere CC Workspace


The Project Panel

The project panel is where you store all the elements needed to create your finished video. It can contain individual video clips, audio clips, titles, photos and graphical images. When you import new items they appear automatically in the project panel.

The project panel also contains


, which include all the data in a particular timeline.


The Monitor Panel

The monitor panel is where you view video clips and edited video sequences. Controls under each monitor allow you to scroll through the video and set edit points.

In the top right corner of the monitor panel is a fly-out menu containing numerous additional viewing options, including technical monitors.


The Source Monitor

The Program Monitor

The right screen is the

which shows you the active timeline.


The Timeline Panel

The timeline panel is where your video takes shape. By dragging items from the

project panel


source monitor

and placing them in the desired order, you create a sequence of clips and events which play in the timeline from left to right.


The Timeline Panel

With items in the timeline, you can:Adjust edit points, making clips shorter or longer, or stretch them over time.Create multiple layers of video, e.g. titles, superimposed images, etc.Create multiple layers of audio, e.g. voiceovers, music, etc.

Add transitions, filters, special effects, etc.


The Current Time Indicator

The Current Time Indicator (CTI) is a yellow triangular indicator which shows you where you are in the timeline. CTIs are used in several different panels.Many tasks depend on the position of the CTI, for example:Pasting clips into the sequence.

Adding markers to a clip or sequence.

Razor at Current Time Indicator (CTRL-K): This splits any unlocked clips at the point where the CTI is positioned.


The Effects Panel

Drag video and audio effects and transitions from this panel to the timeline. Effects and transitions can then be modified with the effect control panel.


The Media Browser

The Media Browser is where you get the footage or photos that you will import into your Project Window.


The Toolbox



contains common tools used for editing clips in the


. Click on any of the buttons (or use the keyboard shortcuts) to select each tool. The default tool is the selection tool.

When you select a tool, the mouse pointer will usually change to a new icon to represent the tool when held over the timeline panel. In some cases, you can change the behavior of a tool by holding down a modifier key such as the Shift key.
