Video editing is the control and arrangement of video shots. Video editing is used to structure and present all video information, including films and television shows, video advertisements, and video essays. Video editing has been dramatically democratized in recent years by editing software available for personal computers.
Editing videos can be difficult and uninteresting; several technologies have been produced to assist people in this task.
Video editing is the process of moving and rearranging video shots to create 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. 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.
Video editing dates back to analog recording practices. Film sections required the steps of editing, such as cutting the film and pasting it back together to add or remove frames, to be done manually. Hardware equipment was later developed so those processes didn’t need to be done by hand, but any modifications to the footage needed to be physically applied to the film itself. Today, most video is recorded digitally and can thus be edited using video editing software. Analog forms of video editing are considered linear, whereas digital video editing is considered nonlinear.
