If you’ve just come back from an exciting adventure, you may feel a bit let down when you go over the videos that you recorded. Alone none of the videos may really capture the spirit of that adventure because they don’t really produce the same sort of emotions – but with the help of a few edits it is actually possible to do so.
The trick to editing travel videos so that they really capture the feeling behind a trip is to polish it and give it a bit of personality. While that may sound difficult if you have no background to speak of in video editing, using a Windows video editor such as Movavi Video Editor will help to make it much easier.
As a starting point, you can use the features of Movavi Video Editor to go over your travel video footage with a fine comb and trim out any unnecessary parts that you don’t want to include in the final video. At the same time you can also identify which clips you do want to include, and arrange and combine them in the proper sequence. If you find that some of the footage is shaky, blurry or has other issues, you can use the tools available to correct the problem as well.
Once you’ve edited your travel video in this fashion its core structure should be good to go. After that you can start to give it a bit of personality through the numerous other feature sin Movavi Video Editor, such as:
- Applying special effects and filters to transform the style and appearance of the video so that it has a particular look.
- Adding animated transitions between certain scenes to jazz up the video.
- Inserting additional audio tracks for background music or voiceovers and controlling the sound levels as necessary.
- Placing text within the video itself and customizing its appearance to create unique captions, watermarks or subtitles.
By picking background music that fits and using the effects available to engineer a look that you feel captures the spirit of your trip – you’ll be amazed at how different your travel video looks by the time you’re done. It may take a little bit of experimentation before you settle on a final look that you’re satisfied with, but because it is so easy to apply the features in Movavi Video Editor and combine them with one another – it shouldn’t take that long really.
