Pre-edit tasks are a necessary part of the video editing process. Doing these tasks will not only make your video look better, but it will also make your edit faster. This video will tell you everything you need to know about getting ready to edit. We’ll cover procuring assets and using watermarked stock footage to fill gaps in a narrative to see if it fits. We’ll tell you when you need to make a proxy, use your native RAW footage or transcode to ProRes. We’ll talk about customizing your workspace and how to incorporate better communication from the start.
