To overcome this, you should make it a habit to create a central folder when starting a project. The folder is used as the main source of data that will be used in the editing process. You can save data by categories such as videos, photos, graphics, music, sound effects, and others. This will make your video project more organised and save time in accessing data searches.
- Use custom keyboard shortcuts

Sometimes the editing speed will be hampered because of the distance of the shortcut keys in the editing software used. There are several editing software that has a custom keyboard shortcut feature where you can set keyboard shortcuts as you wish. Adobe Premiere Pro is one of the editing software that supports this feature. In editing with Adobe Premiere Pro, there is a shortcut trick that allows editing shortcuts to be done only by the left hand.
- Shot Variations
Visual satisfaction is important in a video. As much as possible, shooting in a video should always be interesting in every image change. You can try using various angles in an image scene. In addition, you can also use various editing tricks that can make an image interesting, such as zoom effects, unique transition effects, or graphic effects added to videos.
