While an overwhelming majority of these consumers want to take higher quality, more captivating videos that truly represent their most memorable summer experiences, many feel that they lack the talent or experience to do so. That is where
Tip One: Tell A Story
Baby's first day at the beach is worth more than a one-minute video clip of him or her spitting out sand. Turn this into a real story that everyone will love with an intro (getting Baby ready for the beach), a core (Baby enjoying the sand and surf) and a conclusion (Baby sleeping safely in Mom's arms on the ride home). It only takes a few minutes to construct a complete story - simply plan ahead, brainstorm, get inspiration and write out your thoughts as they come together during the editing process.
Tip Two: Add a Soundtrack
Every year has its 'songs of the summer' that bring you back to those special moments - why not leverage those in your videos? Music and sound effects transform videos and also cover any imperfections in the video. Easy-to-use tools can also help you mask unwanted sounds like barking dogs, traffic and slamming doors with light music. It's easy to determine the right microphone setup for recording your own sound effects or you can simply download and share sound effects at www.DirectorZone.com. You can also obtain free music downloads for your videos at MusOpen.org.
Product Tip: Try CyberLink's AudioDirector Ultra, which works seamlessly with PowerDirector 11, to provide professional sound design and restoration.
Tip Three: Set the Pace
The key to successful video editing is creating a tempo that matches the tone and mood of your video project - rather than randomly cutting footage. Use a beat marker to help you determine if your edits are timed appropriately throughout the footage, whether it is fast or slow, so your final video is enjoyable for others to watch.
If you are filming a wedding or a major event for loved ones, you want your video to be as perfect as it can be - so take the time to make precise edits using keyframe controls and trim tools.
