Overview Edit

Video editing is the process of taking video images and manipulating (editing) them. This often entails using software and various types of programs to arrange video clips, manipulate time, add effects, and include different sounds. In the context of writing across media, video editing is a way of creating finished videos that strategically and successfully discuss an argument or have desired consequences.
