How to learn video editing, a complete guide
We all know that a video leaves a huge impact on the viewers. It is the best form of content when compared to blogs or podcasts. The retention rate of videos is much higher when compared to other forms of content. These are just a few of the reasons why videos will thrive even more in the coming days, and so will video editing opportunities.
In this guide, I will answer all the questions related to:
How and where to learn video editing?
I would say that this completely depends on you. Whether you want to pursue a course for video editing or you want to become a professional video editor yourself. the choice is yours. An average video editing course is for about Rs 2 Lacks and you will spend an average of 2 years learning there.
Whereas, if you learn video editing yourself from online resources like Youtube and other learning platforms by watching video editing tutorials, you won’t have to spend such high amounts there and also, the majority of your time will completely depend on how much will you put efforts learning yourself.
Our recommended YouTube channel to learn video editing is Cinecom.net

The choice is again completely yours, that you want to create 2 videos in 30 days or create 30 videos in 30 days. I think I cannot make it more clear than that, but if you are still not convinced, here is another point. You can join an internship program where you will be able to learn whatever you want and might get paid for learning as well. How cool is that right?
You can join Video Editing Internship Program at HashtagPP. An ocean of opportunities is waiting for you to dive in.
Now, let’s jump to the next questions.
What do you need to do video editing?
The basic thing you need is a decent performing laptop or desktop. You will need some video editing software installed on the computer, like Adobe Premiere Pro or Final Cut Pro. Basically, this is all you need to get started. And with time, when you will perform better, you will know by yourself that what is it that you need to edit a video.
What is the scope of video editing?
The answer to this question is already mentioned above but I will answer it here nonetheless. Videos are the future of content. This is why there will be a rise in video consumption and hence it will lead to an increase in video editing opportunities.
If you are an uncertified video editor then can you grow an exponential growth in video editing or not?
You might have had this question since I told you that you can learn from online resources. So, the thing is there are many free courses available on the web that will provide you with certificates. But the times are changing and I would suggest you go and enhance skills rather than gathering certificates. Companies now look up to your work samples and not your certificates.
And yes, you can have an exponential growth as an uncertified video editor as long as you are a skilled video editor.
Is video editing hard to learn?
Okay, so here is a thing. When was the last time you thought reading, writing or even walking is hard? Did you get that? Like everything is hard at first and then it comes to you naturally. Same is with video editing. All I have to say is, learn the skill and it will be worth it
The next question is my personal favourite.
How much do video editors make?
Initially, if you are starting with a job as a fresher, you can get anywhere between 10k/Month to 15k/Month. But as you will keep growing and learning, there is no upper limit for earning through video editing. You can start a Youtube Channel, you can work as a freelancer, you can lead a team or you can start your own video production company, the possibilities are endless.
Well, I think I have covered all the questions that might have raised in your head. But if you think I missed any of your questions, feel free to comment down below and I will answer that for you.
