Intro to Editing
and welcome to the section on learning how to edit your videos. I wanted to create a quick intro video just to preview what this section is all about. And just to talk about the setup I'm using because I'm sure you might be interested in a change that I'm doing in this section. I'm just editing or recording in my own office. You saw this setup briefly a couple sections ago but using my paper lanterns, my HD logitech C 9 20 webcam. Just the gray backdrop. So I don't have any lighting back here except for the two paper lanterns. I'm using my how Pr 40 microphone which is right below frame so I like it the frame to be clean. I'm also standing on the third using the rule of thirds, putting myself in the third rather than the center so that I can add more graphics up here, which I'm going to be doing a lot more in this section.

r if you already know how to edit using whatever application. We aren't diving into a specific video editor. I prefer premiere pro and I have a complete course on how to use adobe. Premiere Pro. I just launched it before this course was launched. So it's a great course if you want to dive in and learn everything that in itself is like a five or six hour course and we couldn't add that to this course and we couldn't do something similar in this course. So the lessons in this course about editing are all their, their their their general in the sense that you can use any editing application to use our tips. These are best practices that I've come up with that. I've learned that I use as a professional video editor myself in my day to day life because that's what I do professionally. Not only am I teaching online courses, but I edit commercials, documentaries, short films, narrative films, anything, you name it, I edit it and do motion graphics. So I put together my top practices in this section. If you're not as interested in editing, go ahead and just skip this section, go onto distribution where you'll learn how to get your video out, get more views, grow an audience online on places like Youtube or social media.
