In the previous installment of EPK Editing Workflows, Maxim Jago showed you how to ingest media and build a basic assembly edit from your favorite shots. Here you'll take that rough cut and fine-tune it using a number of industry-standard trimming techniques that work in just about every nonlinear editing system. You'll learn how to take your edited sequence from an assembly to a precise cut, with temporary effects and transitions that will help you nail down the final visual look of your video.
- Establishing the starting point
- Stripping out content from the assembly cut
- Editing quickly with keyboard shortcuts
- Advanced trimming techniques
- Trimming with the JKL technique
- Adding placeholder transitions and effects
