When Not To Use Dissolves In Video Editing

 

So here’s the thing…

 

I do quick recuts on some of my client’s videos.

 

I don’t edit videos for people.

 

I recut them to show them what is possible by adding and removing content

 

and I’m always going arghhhhhh

 

because instead of one shot simply cutting to the next shot

 

there are dissolves/fades/transitions added between the shots.

 

I get it. You can. It’s fun. It looks nice

 

BUT 

 

anytime you have to recut the content

 

 - and if you are creating useful content then you will be asked to recut it or someone will ask if they can recut it - 

 

if you have dissolves you have just made it

 

  • messier
  • time-consuming
  • more expensive

 

to recut your content.

 

AND

 

this is not what you want if you are a New Video Professional or NVP

 

NVP’s aren’t really interested in video but they use it because they know it boosts their business to do so.

ps. Are there times to use dissolves?  Definitely and powerfully.  Just don’t use then randomly.
