Requirements to be a Video editor

What does it take to be a video editor? The path can be quite expensive , software , hardware and maybe even some classes.

Don't get discouraged though , You can learn tons of stuff out on the web , websites like youtube and google are great resources for knowledge.

Also some alternative ways which I will not mention will save you a lot of money instead of having to buy a software (TPB wink wink) ...........................

Unfortunately you will have to spend some money on your hardware if your computer is really outdated by this I mean ... A better GPU , CPU , RAM and possibly a dual monitor (Not needed but its way more comfortable while doing work)

Anyway , here are some programs that you may need to be on your way to CGI and Video editing.

  • Sony vegas - Intermediate
  • After effects - Hard
  • Cinema 4D - Intermediate / hard ( modeling)
  • 3D MAX - Hard
  • Phothoshop ( If you want to create on-the-side kind of things like graphics
