Whether you’re a YouTuber, an editor or a designer, there will come a day where you need to edit a video when you’re in the digital art and design industry. Editing a simple video can be smooth as it requires less hardware and processing power to do. But nowadays, video processing demands have increased, which means more complex editing that requires a powerful tool by your side. Here we have listed several video processing tools that you need if you’re a video editor.
Sometimes when you’re editing your client is going to request another video or music added to the video. But the problem with adding contents to your video is a copyright problem, a lot of music and videos are copyrighted, which means you can’t use it freely, especially if your video is for commercial use. But do not worry, there’s a lot of free-to-use videos and music from YouTube and other sites as well, just make sure that you check if they’re copyright free (safe to use).
A good computer
This tool is an essential tool for every editor, yes an excellent high-end computer is needed. A simple reason is that every time you edit you’re going to render the video, which takes a lot of time depending on how complicated the editing goes. If you have a lousy computer, it’ll take hours and hours, some can even take a whole day to render, and this is why a good machine can reduce the time taken for rendering.
Tip: a good setup is a computer with bigger RAM, preferably 8 gigabyte is the minimum for video editing, more is always better.
Besides a high-end computer set up, you also need a cooling system as your computer will get heated during the rendering process. What you can do to cool down the heat is to install a fan on your computer, one is never enough, make sure to have two or three fans on your computer. If you have more money to spare, you can always get a liquid cooling system for your pc, which is more efficient than computer fans, but might cost more.
Tip: if your computer case is small, you can always get a little external fan, this will save some money for your wallet and some space for your computer.…
