What Drives the Cut: Editing vs Real Life – Part 1 of 4
This is Part One of a four part series I will be covering each week on the subject of cutting your videos.
It is all very well to describe the many different cuts available to you as an editor but unless you understand what they are for and what effect they have, you will invariably fail.
Cutting at the wrong point or in the wrong way simply leaves the audience confused.
Make no mistake that in this modern era of watching videos online, that confused audience will click away in a heartbeat very often never to return.
Why People Aren’t Watching Your Videos
This is a rather lengthy discussion on the subject of getting people to watch your YouTube videos and well worth watching.
There is a tendency to focus on the “packaging” of YouTube channels and videos to the detriment of the actual content itself.
You see a lot of information these days presented on getting the thumbnails right, the descriptions right and all the other SEO kind of stuff connected with video.
Yes, these things are important but if ultimately the video itself does not deliver the promise of the packaging, you will lose.
One of the keys to achieving that is to use an editor that both does the job but is within your skill set. One of my favorites to get that balance is Corel VideoStudio.

Remove Wind Noise From Your Videos – CyberLink PowerDirector 20/365
This is a demonstration of another of the A.I. modules added to the latest version of PowerDirector 20/365.
As is the case with the other A.I. driven modules they added you need to have some decent computing power at your disposal in order for these ones to run effectively.
In my testing of this module it works “OK” some of the time depending on the strength of the wind noise and the existing audio on the track.
Given that wind noise is often “in front of” the existing audio rather than in the background it always presents a very tricky proposition.
My recommendation is always to take steps to eliminate wind noise at the point of recording so you never have to deal with it.
