There could be any number of factors as to why people quit watching a video, but if you want to entice them to stick around, there are a few tricks. Yes, "content is king," but CONTEXT is arguably queen— and let's be honest, who really rules the castle? That is to say— even if your content is great, if you aren't getting it to the right audience, it won't ...

Content trumps everything. People will watch if the story is compelling. You can have crap audio, blocky graphics, bad lighting, noisy video etc but it all falls away if you have something to say that an audience wants to hear. Naturally it's always a good idea to do the best job you can in all the technical areas because you don't want to actively annoy ...

You can use an EDL (Edit Decision List) in the CMX3600 format. An EDL is a very simple import/export format from the 1970s, when data was exchanged using floppy disks and videos were stored on tape. It's just a text file and most modern NLEs (including Premiere Pro) can import/export it. (Today there are some variations between NLEs, but that doesn't have to ...

If you are editing a processor intensive codec like h.264 (not a good idea) -the processor could start to be a bottleneck. If you are editing a less compressed format like ProRes your drive or RAM can start to become the bottleneck. Since that is the ...

The problem was stemming from the Renderer. I solved it by switching off GPU-acceleration. I think this means I'm no longer using my GPU, which is a power tradeoff. Hopefully I'll be able to switch back once I'm running a non-beta version of Mac OS X.

There are already good answers. But let me share what not to do. Too often than not there is something poisoning our videos. We have so much to say, but the video should be less than x minutes. As a result we squeeze as much as possible into this precious time. We don't even realize how indigestive the video has become, because we are too much into the ...

Something that isn't mentioned, but has a direct impact on performance obviously would be what effects (even fixed effects like motion & opacity) are applied on the footage while trying to cut. Other things to consider (some mentioned before, some not), in no particular order: Overall effects applied (including color correction). The number of ...
