Calling all first-time editors!


Video editing is an increasingly popular form of creative expression, and it's now easier than ever to create and share videos for your clients, your presentations or for yourself.


Video editing is a creative way to express yourself or tell a story, but many people don't know how to get started.


You may be intimidated by the thought of cutting video clips or you may have used some video-editing software before but are looking for ways to improve your skills. 



Our Video Editing for Online and Desktop Publishing online course shows you how to edit, and also why to edit. As people become increasingly used to receiving information from images, videos and graphics rather than just words, the importance of video has never been greater. If you want to get your message across as effectively as possible, it's worth investing some time into making your presentation come alive with a bit of video magic! 


Orms CTSP uses DaVinci Resolve as our video editing software of choice for our online and in-contact course.


DaVinci Resolve is not complicated, it's powerful. It is also free!

What if I don't have my own footage?


You don't have to shoot your own footage to edit your own video. You can use stock footage, for example. The best part about using stock footage is that there is free stock available.

You don't have to worry about whether or not you're going to be able to afford the video footage because it's all just a click away. The downside of this is that there are restrictions on what you can do with these clips - they might only be usable in YouTube videos, for example. We can advise on which paid stock library to use for your projects.



In our Video Editing for Online and Desktop Publishing online course, we provide all the material you need to complete your assignments but you are free to use your own!
