You’ve drooped the clips together into some sensible groupings.
You then got to sequence the clips together.
Editing design principle number two is that you can follow a simple sequence pattern where you take clips from the same group and you put them one after the other.
You can do this by cutting out some of the clips so if you’ve got a say a flight sequence where you’re flying down a river and you goes A B C D E as you go through different sections of that flight path you would remove Indy so you’re left with a jumping to see jumping to E..
This is one way that you get rid of the oring it’s still have an interesting cohesive section of your video but you’re no longer having to watch the entire sequence which may take longer than 20 seconds which we want to be avoiding.
The alternative way to sequence clips together is to take two groups of clips that are similar in some kind of way.
So two different sets of geographical dramatics or two different sets of clips from the same flying area and then you’re going to mesh those two groups of clips together.
The way to do this the most effectively is what I call leapfrogging the clips where you return to clips from one sequence where you’ve already moved on a little bit further than the other.
This takes a little bit more explanation.
So for instance imagine you’ve got some surfing clips and some boat clips and your surfing clips are you fly along seeing some surfer.
And first of all you see Section A B C D E and they run sequentially after each other.
You then got some boating clips where you follow a boat and it goes from little aid it’ll be little ceadel doggedly.
One way that you can put the clips together is that you start off with Section A from the surfing then you go on to section it lay from the boats and you go back to where you left off from the surfing and you go and play B and you go back to where you left off from the boats and you play the little B.S.
And then so on with the c sections.
That is an okay way to do the grouping.
But what I have discovered is that the users don’t like it as much as if you do it the way I’m about to explain.
Because what happens is that in their heads they expect the surfing action to still be going on in the background why they’ve now moved over and started watching the action.
So when you come back to see the surfing action they get a sense of surprise and slight disappointment as to why the surfers haven’t moved on in any kind of way.
All of this thinking was going on.
Were you surprised.
A much better reaction from the viewer.
If you do it this way where you start off by showing the surfing where you started off in s.a. you then move off to the beginning of the boat section rather then coming back to where you left off with a surf section.
You’ll skip one of the clips you’ll skip a section and it goes straight to Section C of the Surfing the boat section.
You’ll then come back to Section C of the boat missing out the baby because the viewer has expected the boats to have moved on and the surface to have moved on while they were watching the other clips.
And this fits much better with them and they do not get such that little reactionists wasn’t quite expected to do.
