Oh and just one more thought - when cutting to music you don't always have to cut to the beat
 
Hope that helps

I agree with that...and when I see others do it, it does look very natural. However, there are times, when I try it, and it doesn't feel right. Perhaps this is just the fact that it is my own work, so I am being critical. Where if someone else did it, it would be okay.

Timccr -  could you elaborate on your advice?  I don't quite understand what you're saying, and would like to improve my own editing abilities.  Could you explain in more detail your "editing philosophy", if you will?  Thanks.


I took it as he was talking about dissolve transitions between clips. While I don't agree that that they are for people that don't know how to edit. I do agree that too many of them are not good. I have traditionally used the soundtrack as a guide in which I do. And after looking at my video after his comments, I agree I did too many. There is a place for dissolves IMO. But overuse is bad. If you look at films in general they very rarely use cross dissolves between clips. It does happen but very rarely.

Thanks for the feedback

Too many mixes in the opening sequence. Have a bit more confidence in your ability to cut a sequence because it looks to me like you intuitivly can do it but had a little crisis and bottled out. You have a nice cut on action at 0:29 and another one at 0:32 but then start with the mixes. Mixes are really for people who cant edit or dont have the cutaways. OK maybe that is a bit extreme but it is sadly really very rare to see a proper sequence these days.

Thanks for the critique. I do tend to lean towards dissolves if the music isn't obvious for cuts. I am getting better at it, than what I used to do. Good reminder, when I have some time I may look to re edit it with some of your advice.
