Asylum trailer: Task 3 – Managing footage and editing

3: Managing footage and editing

Once filming was completed all that was left to do was create the film.
Opening a new project I adjusted the sequence setting to what I needed to have my video set at – frame size: 1920 x 1080, 24 fps, etc.

Then it was time to start editing. First I had to import all the clips I needed. So clicking onto file, I then clicked on import.

I made sure that all films were in different folders, so that it was easier to find them for editing.

After picking my chosen clips, and placing them onto the sequence. I then began to cut then up using the cut tool (the razor blade symbol) so that I could follow the story board as best as I could.

After putting all my footage into the desired places I then began to wonder if there was any need for transitions.Clicking onto ‘Opacity’ in ‘Effects controls’ I added key frames where I thought it was needed.

Once I was happy with the trailer, and made sure it followed the story board. It was then time to export the video.
