Anytime you’re using a editor and need to have consistent branding and structure throughout your content, there is always a way to streamline that so you can just insert the new footage and execute efficiently. This usually means using templates within your editor. Everything from your template editing files to your template graphic files. It depends on what all you need, but think about how you can have things ready to go with just some minor tweaks in order to get new episodes out quickly.
2) Don’t shoot too much footage
This seems obvious, but the reality is you’re going to need to limit the timing of your video in order to keep audience retention up. So don’t shoot a whole heck of a lot if you’re not trying to be in editing mode for hours. You will be very grateful when you’re finished and exporting in a timely manner.
3) Write a script
A script can be anything from word-for-word to a bullet point of highlights. Just have something you can refer to so that you know you’re covering everything you wanted to in your footage and not sitting around with the camera rolling trying to think of what to say (see point #2 about too much footage!)
4) Learn the hotkeys
The hardest part about getting started with a new video editor is not knowing your way around fast enough. So when you get acquainted you need to get informed on the hotkeys so that when you’re editing it’s a much more natural process than trying to go into drop down menus and finding the option you need — if it’s even there.
