What is Video Post-Production Phase?
The video post-production phase is the phase where you unite all of the raw footages into one flowing and symbiotic film. Which would, additionally, help viewer to immerse into the environment utilizing sounds, music, special effects and transitions. Consequently, leading to having a viewer-oriented informational/commercial/entertaining clip and even movies.
The Procedure to Follow
During the video post-production phase, it is not necessary to follow the specific structure. However, doing certain steps before or after might save you some time. For example, the color correction of the film should be done last. In case you would like to add or remove certain scenes. And, 2D/3D graphics scenes could be done during the production phase and so on and so on. So, it is up to you to decide how to structure your approach during that phase. Our recommendation is to follow the path of the least resistance. If something can be done earlier – do it!
I will just introduce you to some steps, which are taken during the video post-production phase, and, their execution will depend on your creativity. As well as, what you have got in mind for your project.
Editing is the step during which you put all of the shots, music, transitions and effects together to have a flowing picture in the end. Thus, this is the step where the whole post-production starts and ends. In other words, it can start by putting the shots together and put aside before the in-between steps are finished. Such as compositing and 2D/3D graphics.
Making of 2D/3D graphics is an intermediary step. Therefore, it can exist in your project or you can abstain from it – depends on the project. Consequently, it would mean that it can be done in any order of the whole video production process. So, it is up to you decide on when to start with this step.
Music writing, also known as, sound engineering. Is an important step as it would help your viewers to immerse into the environment you are creating. Good sounds decisions would make the picture wholesome and vibrant. Therefore, it is advised not to underestimate this step.
Part of the editing. Importantly, is done at the end of the whole video production process and post-production accordingly. When everything is ready, all shots support each other and music is vibrant. It is time to give your video a finishing touch with the colour correction. Consequently, the colour correction fixes or enhances the lights and colours of the picture. Which immerses your viewer into the environment even more.
And it’s ready. Your video has just passed from an idea to actual execution and finalization. Give yourself applause, because it was a long process.
