MOBILE VIDEO EDITING
Tips and tutorials for mobile video editing for anyone
You have an excellent camera right inside your smartphone. If you take a little bit of time to think about your technique then you will be able to record some really high quality videos. Here is a list of four things to remember when you are creating videos on your mobile device.
When filming with their smartphones a lot of people automatically hold them the same way they would if they were texting or taking a selfie. The image you get recording this way is taller than it is wide and is called a ‘portrait’. When you post a video with these dimensions on Youtube it will have massive black bars on either side.
The easiest thing you can do to record better smartphone videos is to turn your phone to the side. If you do this then your videos will have the same dimensions as Youtube and, when you post them, they will use the entire screen rather than just one third.
The stereotypical cellphone video is extremely shaky. Some newer phones have built-in hardware that will help reduce camera shake, but to make sure you have a steady video you should use something as a stabilizer.
Tripods are probably the most common tools for stabilizing cameras, and you can get special mounts for your smartphone. You do not necessarily need equipment to stabilize your phone, though. Tables, trees, concrete barriers, and benches are all examples of things you can use to keep your smartphone steady.
Viewers will click away from beautiful looking videos if it is too hard to hear the people talking or if there is annoying static. If you want to capture any specific sounds in your video, especially dialogue, then it is better to use an external microphone than to rely on your phone’s built-in mic. Smartphones are not as good at recording audio as they are at video.
If you do not have access to an external mic then you will need to film somewhere quiet and make sure that anybody who is talking is very close to your phone.
If you follow the above tips then you will be sure to record great looking, and sounding, raw clips. Raw clips can always get better. If it takes a while for anything to happen in your video then you will want to trim down the beginning. This is one of the simpler ways you might want to edit your clip.
You may also want to add filters, text, music, or other effects. Your videos only get better when you take the time to add creative touches.
