You can make your drone footage so much more eye-catching by using these simple editing techniques.Okay, you’ve captured some amazingly beautiful shots with your drone and you’re ready to head into post. Now what? Well, you could just plop them into your timeline and call it good, but if you want to give your footage some more style and dimension, you might want to consider employing a few quick and easy editing techniques. In this video, Tony Northrup shares eight tips for editing drone footage that will make your shots look more dynamic, interesting, and professional. Check it out below:
Whether you’ve been editing for years or you’re new to the process, there are always a few things you can learn. Although these tips are geared toward new editors, everyone wants to be more productive.
A bit of preparation, in the beginning, can speed up your workflow through the whole process. At my old job at a post house, we had some massive video projects and when I was the low man on the totem pole and helping in an assistant editor capacity, I got the job of logging the footage on a few major projects. I had to watch every clip, mark in and out points, rate the clips, adding notes where needed, and tag the clips with keywords. It was a daunting task with over 250 hours of footage to sift through. It wasn’t fun but I learned a ton and I know I took days, maybe even weeks, off of the lead editor’s work. This was in the 1990s so there are so many tools that are available now to make this process a lot easier than I had it.
A little file management goes a long way. I have an example below of a basic file structure. You’ll want to modify it for each project and tweak it to your own preference.
