TED posted this short tutorial from one of their editors. It's a nice complement to the Videomaker tutorials on the subject. If you are just learning editing, or if you just want to improve the aesthetics of your cuts, it's well worth a watch.
The secret to shooting video sequences without compromising continuity of motion is to remain mindful — not of travel direction — but of screen direction. Maintaining screen direction in your video is a matter of relativity, not of reality.
I'm very new to this process, but I have recently begun making films with Adobe Premiere Elements, and I'm having trouble with the editing process. I have all the clips I want in the correct order, but I was wondering if there was anyway to take the effects (color correction, shadow/highlight alterations, etc.) from one clip and copy them to the others? When I try to do it manually, they are always slightly different, so when it progresses from one clip to the next, there is a noticeable change in the quality of the clip.
