As we have already got the timing to editing videos. Now it’s time to learn about the factors in detail on which the timing of the video editing depends. That Are:
The type of video is the first functioning factor that determines the time of video editing. Videography is a vast sector and has several branches. Of all the branches, documentary films, entertainment, educational, promotional, and informational videos are the most popular types of videos.
Most documentary films are long video projects of 30 minutes to several hours so that the editing time can extend to several months. On The other hand, promotional videos are normally a few seconds or minutes, so they take less time around a few minutes. All over, the type of video is the primary time-consuming factor of video editing.
After the type of video comes the length. No matter what type of video you are going to edit, if the video is shorter, then there will be fewer frames so that the editing time will be shorter. If the length of the video more, then it will take more time no matter what the type is.
The captured quality of the raw footage matters a lot when editing the videos. The videos captured in high quality are easy to edit as the pixels are larger, and the editor faces less hassle during the process. On the flip side, low-quality videos are hard to edit as the objects in the video remain brutal, and the editors don’t get proper space to work. However, a highly skilled professional can create the best-polished videos of low-quality raw footage.
In all fields of graphic design, supportive design is essential. If the device is not properly built for the work, then editing videos would be a tough task. So, you will need the ideal device to get your video editing project on time. Here’s what you need minimum in a device for video editing.
16-32GB DDR4 (Above 2400 MHz)
Intel Core i5 7th generation or above (4 physical cores required), AMD Ryzen 5 or above.
256GB NVMe SSD with 7200RPM Speed (You can use an extra SATA hard drive for storing files)
NVIDIA or AMD 2GB (Good For PrimierePro and all)
21 inches or above
After the device, the software plays the most vital role in video editing. Several software is available for video editing, like Premiere Pro, DaVinci Resolve, Adobe After Effects, FinalcutPro, etc. Not all these software are equally efficient and not suitable for all levels of editors. Also, you can’t run all this software on the same device.
If you are a beginner in video editing, then premiere pro is good enough to use. This software is easy and takes less time to render and process. However, premiere pro is good for regular types of videos. Again, video editing works like 4K videos or animation when you are on a professional level. Using the effect after effect takes more time in processing and rendering and requires a very high-end device.
Finally, the most essential and time-determining factor of video editing comes, and that is the skill of the editor. No matter how efficient the device or what advanced software you are using. Only a skillful editor can do the job at the right time. For beginners or learners, there is no bound time frame. Some do the job in hours, while others take days.
