1) Collect your footage first
Organization always plays a vital role in faster work. While working in the post production studios, it is always advisable that you keep the work at one place to save your time. Keep your footage in segregated folders for better organization.
2) Working precisely in the editing studios with L-Cuts and J-Cuts
The two kinds of cuts mentioned above are so bang on that your audience will never know that editing has ever been done or not. The editing flow goes totally smooth with these kinds of cuts and this technique can literally be applied over all kinds of video post production.
3) Avail an SFX Library Subscription
If you are working for post production and are choosing to pick any music without knowing the repercussions of a correct license, you can land into a detrimental trouble. If you often work in the dubbing studios, it is ideal to subscribe to a sound effects archive or library for a licensed collection of music.
4) Know your basic cuts
While working in the post production studios, it is more important that you get all your basics right. Know whatever the cuts are and go by the gut feeling that any of the cut can be used for editing. Whether it is a TV program or a full length movie, narratives or documentaries, the essential cuts can go for all.
5) Follow your most effective tool- Cutting On Action
To create a perfect sync and continuity, the editors should follow the Cutting on Action tool. A seamless scene can be achieved with this trick and your audience will never know about the editing.
