Before you get started, make sure you’ve got access to a full-featured video editing program to do your polishing with. Then import your video and use these guidelines to professionally edit your vlog.
Transform video clips into a cohesive story.
Start by trimming and rearranging video clips so your vlog follows an order that will make sense to your viewers. You’ll also want to remove content that’s not on topic or doesn’t really provide any added value.
Take the time to fine-tune your vlog’s introductory hook and confirm that it snags attention. Before moving on, run through the footage to make sure your narrative flows in chronological order.
Get creative with cuts and transitions.
Use a professional-grade video editing program to add transitions between clips, fade content in and out, and generally guide viewers through your vlog. Many vloggers also use creative cuts as a way to make their videos more entertaining to watch. With a video editing application like Adobe Premiere Pro, you can easily add in:
- Jump cuts
- L-cuts or J-cuts
The way you merge content and transition between video clips helps your viewers follow along — and stay engaged.
Use branding and video elements to your advantage.
Vlogging newcomers and experts alike benefit from cohesive video branding. This means each of your videos should have a uniform style that represents who you are, including:
- Your vlog’s logo
- Video titles and captioning
- Text to signal transitions
- Graphics to explain information
- Convincing calls-to-action
