Introduction to Editing

After we created our short-piece production, we started to edit the our video and make it into a short clip. We used a software on the Mac called 'Final Cut' in order to edit our movie. The Mac is specially made for editing movie or pictures and designing movies.
In the picture on the left hand side, you can see the software.

The image above is a image of how we used the software to edit our production. In the picture on the top left this is where you insert your clips and go through picking out the ones you need and the one you don't need. In the middle of the picture this is where your clip are being played. In the top right this is where your final video and fully edited is going to be played. At the bottom you can see a timeline this is for your video when you go through your clips, you drag it onto the timeline and place it where the next scene is going to be next.

We took many scenes so we had to cut and delete certain irrelevance scenes so we would not be confuse when we choosing our clips.  As we're getting marked on our ability to edit scenes it was an vital element that our production was edited in an suitable order. Whilst we were on 'Final Cut'  we edited our piece by taking out certain parts of scenes so it's as if they were merged together. This wasn't diffcult because we has a tutorial of the editing program before we started to use it.
