Define Video Editing
Video Editing can be defined as the method of manipulating video images. Video editing includes cutting fragments, re-sequencing slides, trimming, adding transitions, and added special effects. Video editing is the method of editing segments of motion, video production recording, special effects and sound footages in the post-production procedure. Motion video film editing is a prototype to video editing, and in many ways, video editing pretends motion picture film editing. With the help of video, the director can communicate non-fictional and fictional events. The aim of editing is to manipulate these events to bring the communication closer to the original goal or target. During the 1950S video tape recorders were so expensive and the quality degradation by copying was so high that 2 inch quadruplex videotape was edited by visualizing the record track with ferrofluid and cutting with a razor blade or guillotine cutter and splicing with video tape. High definition video tape is becoming extremely popular and can be readily edited using the same video editing software along with related motion graphic programs. Video clips are arranged on a timeline, music tracks, and titles, digital on-screen graphics are auxiliary, special effects can be generated, and the finished program is extracted into a finished video. The video can later on be distributed in the form of a Quick time movie, DVD, web streaming, i-pod, video tape or CD-ROM.
