The reason for that is that these videos generally speaking have to be produced quickly and require minimal work done in editing software.

That kind of pressure tends to result in people getting both creative and inventive with how they put them together.

It’s kind of a pressure cooker effect.

In the below you can see a whole bunch of these deconstructed to show how easily they can be done.

Long Editing Crashes Your Videos – How to quickly and easily edit videos

Think of the video below as a sort halftime pep talk from the coach about working smarter and not harder!

When most people set off on the adventure of long term content creation they are full of beans and almost always vow they will never burn out.

Unfortunately sheer enthusiasm has a use-by date and for some it is short and others a little longer.

It usually doesn’t take very long before you realize you are on some kind of never ending treadmill of production and the “enthusiasm jar” is beginning to run dry!

Check out the video below for some excellent tips on how and why this occurs and steps you can take to avoid it and keep your content creation ship on course.

This is a run through from Jacky on updating Filmora in general as well as a few tips for working with the program.

One thing he points out is that very often Filmora are slow to update the download copy being offered on their website which can be a bit confusing when you first start.

This is a fairly long article published by the people at Movavi but is well worth the read.

It is easy for people to throw out ideas like you should cut your videos to the beat or whatever but generally speaking those “blanket” ideas scream amateur.

The real way to approach the subject is to gain your own understanding so you can express yourself fully.

To clarify let’s take the “cutting on the beat” advice.

The trick is in knowing why you would cut on the beat and for what reason or effect it would achieve as well as know the same reasons for not cutting on the beat.
