|“A video editor weaves a story together using footage. They use music, dialog, graphics, effects and more to enhance the story. A motion graphics artist uses 3D motion graphics and animations alone or in combination with footage to create videos and video elements.”Our video editing and Basic motion graphics can assist you in making a film, short film, or documentary in these online courses. Use popular video editing software such as Premiere Pro, Photoshop after Impact, Camtasia, Pro display Creator, VideoScribe and Wondershare Filmora, learn the skills of video editing from our professional teachers. You will also learn how to assemble layer and image, apply video effects to your images, and model motion graphics such as title sequences, lower thirds, and text animations.”If something already exists, like a template or footage, a video editor should be able to work with it. They should be able to make some sort of compilation or motion graphic out of these resources, within reason.
- If something static needs to be built from scratch, like a diagram, football field or airplane, a video editor should be able to do this within reason. However it will take them longer than a motion graphics artist and will not look as crisp. Depending on the importance of the element, the client or company may want to freelance this task out.
- If something active needs to be created like a talking hippopotamus walking down a non-existent beach, the video editor is out of the question. It will be best to freelance this out or start over with your storyboarding”.
