For everyone from the amateur to the experienced filmmaker, connecting visuals together is key to whatever project you’re creating. Whether it’s footage from a home video or a professional production, knowing how to clip is essential. Here is a brief tutorial to assist in getting the job done.
To get started, you’ll need to launch an appropriate video editing platform. Fortunately, if you don’t have any, there are countless resources online which offer affordable and even free applications. Upon launching the editing suite, upload the two clips you plan to join together.
If you want to make the clips flow seamlessly into each other, a transition is a must. This is an effect that seamlessly blends both clips to create one smooth, continuous shot. Having multiple transition options to choose from, you’re encouraged to explore different types to find the one that works best for you.
Now that you’ve inserted a transition, you’re ready to render your project. This will generate a single video file inclusive of your clips and the transition between them. Once you’re done rendering, you can send the video to everybody!
