3. Merging The Clips
Raw videos might need cuts and trims, to be put together to get a complete sequel. All the clips you have shot at different angles should be brought together. When you record videos there are some extra recordings that you have to cut and keep the important parts so that you can merge them together to build something meaningful. Merging the clips requires more patience and attention and doing it yourself can be tiresome.
4. Adjust Speed
Vlogging is a way to connect but have you thought about the speed limit in a video? Relax there’s nothing like a speed limit, the speed mentioned is about the one used in the video. Some special clips are supposed to show in slow motion and some road trips should be shown at 2x speed. Controlling the speed of the video is a must. If you don’t control the pace, it becomes tough for the audience to understand.
5. Correct The Color Scheme
Videos without colors are not so captivating and even at times of recording the video lighting may not be available or the natural brightness may not be in sync, Color can excite emotions and make people resonate with the places you show and create a good factor. Make your video more presentable with proper lighting and color concept. Bring out the best using all the beautiful tints to video so that people can see through your lens in a meaningful way.
6. Add Audio And Music
None will appreciate a plain video as it lacks something that can catch the fancy of the viewers. Appropriate music can rock your travel videos. But make sure that you don’t use lossy audio that makes the audience want to take a nap and also don’t add too much high and party music. Travel video is meant to be soothing and rich with the essence of happiness, so choose music that is neutral and elegant.
7. Increase Connectivity With Subtitles
You might be wondering who puts subtitles to their travel videos but you don’t realize its potential unless you start using them. People who are going to watch are not just selected communities but also specifically able people. Adding subtitles will increase the chance of reaching your video to every individual and definitely, that will portray your thoughtfulness as well. Subtitles not only help them but also those who speak languages different from yours. Subtitles help in better understanding and more and more people will feel connected to your videos.
8. Add Magic
Nah! This is not an abracadabra kind of magic but adding the aspect that makes your video catchy. Transition is something that is not new but yes it’s the trend nowadays. If you are thinking about where to use transition in a travel video, let us explain to you how and where it can be used. When you move from one place to another, how will you present the shift? Will you leave it blank? Not. You can apply transitions at the place and you will have a video without gaps and this looks flawless. Transition is magic to the videos that can turn an average clip into an impressive one.
It’s a myth when someone says “don’t use the graphic it doesn’t make it look natural”. The truth is using graphics in videos makes it look more natural and gives an HD look that will make your video lively and watchable.
Travel videos are so wonderful that one can’t get bored of them, but it also depends upon the creator of the video to make it convenient for the audience. You don’t have to panic, just keep the above discussion in mind when you make your video.
