video length
Video Length
  • The Short Video– Typically under 45 seconds, is perfect as a quick attention grabber, or great used as an intro bumper video to be placed at the beginning or end of a series of videos.
  • The Mid Size Video– Around the 1 minute mark, is the ideal length to relay your message in style without it being too long. When you don’t want to lose the viewers interest, this is the perfect type of video.
  • The Full Length Video – Between 2 and 5 minutes in length, allows you to get into more details on what you’re showing. Ideal when you want to present the viewer with expanded information and interesting visuals showcasing your business. Great when launching a product or service and you want longer transition times between sections. Great to include screen capture video for times when you want to show the viewer a demo.

tips for h ow to create and edit video
Tips for how to create and edit video
  • Creation
    • Have storyboard or outline ready
    • Gather elements beforehand: images, video footage, music, motion elements
    • Keep on-screen text to a minimum (break up longer paragraphs onto multiple slides)
    • Select only 1 or 2 font types per video.
    • Unless it’s a how-to tutorial: 5-10 seconds for middle slides.
    • 8-15 seconds for intro and exit slides.
    • For marketing videos, include a call to action at the end.
    • Understand the concepts of layering and of keyframes
      • Layering – each layer can be manipulated separately
      • Keyframes – controls sequence timing, animation, and motion for each layered element
    • Match the music with the purpose of the video
    • Keep overall length in check. Too long, and you’ll lose viewers. Short attention spans.
    • About transitions – simpler is better, more professional. Most popular is crossfade.
