How is Video Editing different from Motion Graphics?

Video editing or (Live Action Video editing) is the process of manipulating actual video footage to create a new, edited video. This can include modifying, rearranging, trimming, or manipulating an unedited video file. Video editing differs from motion graphics, which is more about adding motion/animation to digital graphics. It is common for videos to include motion graphics overlaid on top to create a more engaging final product.

Will my designated designer be my video designer?

This could be the case, but it is not guaranteed. We have a select group of designers who will be assigned video editing requests, which means the assigned designer could be someone who isn’t your Designated Designer.

How do I provide the best possible request for video editing?

Provide your designer with clear instructions to follow, scripts to use, and timestamps on where in the video you want to be edited. You can also share the audio/music files you'd like added to the request.

How long is the turnaround time for a video editing request?

It typically takes 2-5 business days to complete a 3 minute video. However, this timeframe can go up or down depending on the video's complexity and type of project, or if you have other higher-priority requests in your queue.

All your submitted requests (including Video Editing requests) will be placed in your request queue and will be worked on according to your queue priority order.

What if I want a different file format? (Other than default file formats)

If you would like a different format, you can request it, but it is not guaranteed that we will be able to deliver. Please ask your creative team if it's possible within our scope.

Where do I request revisions?

You can use our Feedback Tools in the platform to annotate the video exactly where you have revisions or comments on the video format.

Can you add motion graphics to my video?

Yes. If the designer assigned to your video editing request does not have motion graphics skills, then it’ll be endorsed to a motion graphics designer to handle the MG animations.

What is the maximum length of the video you will create?

The maximum length of the video file to be delivered is 3 minutes for short-form videos (eg: Tiktok clips), and 12 minutes for long-form videos (eg: YouTube videos). You may submit longer videos, but the delivered file will have a maximum duration of 3 or 12 minutes.

Can you work on descriptive subtitles under Titling/Subtitling/Captioning?

Yes, as long as the text is provided.
