Final Editing Tweaks (Day 12)
Final Editing Tweaks (Day 12)Bradley WestBy this point in time, all we needed to do was add finishing tweaks to syncing, green screen shots and editing effects and transitions to ensure the video looks as good as possible.In addition, we decided to change a green screen effect to have a large pulsating heart whilst little hearts fly out of the centre of the screen during a I love it chorus. This is creative and adds another exciting element to the video.

The problem had been that clips were 1 or 2 frames out of sync but this was fixed successfully.

Each clip had to relatively fit each other too with no one single clip being too bright.I checked and edited certain color correctors on clips and added dazzle effects to clips which were too bland in colour.
