I tried to edit my vlog on After Effects and for some reason, this completely sent my brain into utter meltdown, so I thought why don’t I use iMovie? Surely that can’t be too difficult? OMG this programme saved my life, it was just so easy to understand, it’s video editing for dummies, anyone with brain cells can use this, believe me it’s so so so easy. Just by fiddling about and clicking a few things I was able to get a grip with the programme and immediately started creating my vlog!
You just drag and drop your footage into the timeline, where you can easily crop footage, split footage, move it around, pick transitions, pick colour overlays, speed it up, slow it down, EVERYTHING. You get a really cool preview of your video above your timeline too, where you can edit your footage, and just do really cool things to it with just one click of a button, really fun and simple to use.
So off I went editing my vlog, I added my footage in chronological order and picked out the best parts from each take, looking at what would be the most aesthetically pleasing shots. Then I cropped the footage, sped some of it up, slowed some of it down, and made sure each clip transitioned into the next one cleanly. I then uploaded the music that I wanted as my background and added that in too. I then made sure each clip coincided with the music, making sure transitions happened when the music changed and just synced up the whole thing.
