✅ Here’s a list of what we can do for you as part of the video editing service:

Color correction/Color grading

  • Simple corrections or gradings that do not require rotoscopy.

Transitions effects

  • Visual effects are how videos move a scene from one video clip to another.

Titling/Subtitling/Captioning

  • Processes of displaying text on the video to provide additional or interpretive information.

Voice-over syncing

  • Process of synchronizing a voice recording over video footage in a cohesive manner.

Video clipping/trimming

  • Process of removing a section of a video by cutting in two places, lifting out the middle section and combining the leftover video back together.

Video Template Editing

  • Process of editing a video template with new content and/or creating a new video template from scratch.

Audio Addition

  • Adding music and/or sound effects into the final video.

    • The audio files must be provided by the customer.

Aspect Ratio Update

  • Adjusting the aspect ratio to suit standard/professional formats such as 4:3, 16:9, to ensure suitable viewing across universal platforms. Includes standard aspect ratios for social media.

Format adjustments

  • Conversion of one video format to another, for example, MP4 to MOV.

Footage matching

  • Manipulation and editing of different video footage so it will look cohesive in the final project.

❌ Here’s a list of what we cannot accommodate within our video editing service:

4K videos

  • Our creative teams work with the industry standard for Full HD digital videos (1920 x 1080 resolution).

Rotoscoping

  • Animation techniques that animators use to trace over video footage frame by frame.

Chrome Key Compositing

  • Visual effects and post-production techniques for compositing two images or video streams together based on color hues.

Motion Tracking

  • Process of tracking the movements of an object within a scene.

3D

  • The process that enhances the illusion of depth perception, hence adding a third dimension.

Audio Editing/Sound and Music Editing

  • Designers can cut and stitch audio, but they won’t edit the audio properties (eg: volume, background noise removal, changing pitch of voiceover, audio conversion to another format, applying special effects to audio, gamma manipulation, etc).

Video Stabilization

  • Eliminating jitters and blurriness provides cleaner and smoother footage.

Visual Effects Creation/CGI creation

  • The process by which imagery is created or manipulated outside the context of a live-action shot in filmmaking and video production.

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.

Why can't you offer 4K videos?

At this time, we are limiting video output for technical reasons. However, our creative teams will produce industry standard Full HD digital videos (1920 x 1080 resolution).

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.

Can you edit the audio for my video?

We can cut and stitch audio together. We cannot edit the audio properties like volume, background noise removal, changing the pitch of voiceover, applying special effects to audio, or gamma manipulation.

Do you provide music or sound effects? Do you provide voice-over?

We can add music, voice-over, or sound effects you provide us as a file uploaded to the request or by linking us to a royalty-free download track. Our stock library does not currently include audio, so we cannot support that.

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

It typically takes 2-5 business days to complete. 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 Vidoe 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 MP4)

If you would like a different format, you can request it, but it is not guaranteed that we will be able to deliver. We may be able to deliver MOV and After Effects files, but other than that, 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 jar to annotate the video exactly where you have revisions or comments on the MP4 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 to you is 3 minutes. You may submit videos longer than 3 minutes, but the delivered file will have a maximum duration of 3 minutes.
