What is Technical Editing?

Technical editing is basically the process where we prepare all the necessary materials before coming up with the creative video. In this process, the editor will select the useable clips and audio then cut away all the bad parts.

Why is Technical Editing important?

The simple answer is efficiency. Imagine you’re cooking a dish, you do not want to prepare the ingredients while you are currently cooking the meat in a pan. This will make you unorganized and scattered and you won’t be able to focus on the quality of the food. It is the same case with editing, preparing all clips and audio as early as possible will help you to edit faster and focus on quality all at the same time.
