Feb. 26 Webinar: Web Video Editing

ASBPE's Feb. 26 webinar will provide a detailed, step-by-step walk-through to help you get a vivid picture of the editing process from a fellow B2B editor. Speaker Rob Freedman produces and edits some 40 videos a year.

Other aspects of the video process will be covered but the focus is on editing with the standard editing platform: Final Cut Express. We will walk through the actual editing process of a short video.

We will show you how to:
  • Transfer video from your camera to the editing platform
  • Edit video to create a sequence (Final Cut's term for the edited video)
  • Add transitions
  • Add music
  • Add voiceovers
  • Enhance badly shot or lighted footage
  • Export to a playable file
Rob Freedman, senior editor of Realtor Magazine, has recently made the crossover to multimedia journalism and will offer his “been there, lived through that” experience so you can learn his lessons — and avoid his mistakes.

Date: Friday, February 26, 2010

Time: 12:30 to 2:00 p.m. EST

Location: Your desktop

Cost: $20 for ASBPE members, $45 for nonmembers
