Edit down a better produced video from a recording session

Whether you’re a one take wonder or not, Scenery will help you produce a better version of your recording session, especially if you tend to say “um” or “uh” a lot. Tips to enhance your recording session within Scenery:

  1. Upload full live stream episode using the Ecamm X Scenery integration

  2. Select “Custom Edit”

  3. Once your recording is loaded into Scenery, you can begin to trim down, split, reposition your media, and add visual layers and effects.

Fine tune every aspect

Trim your media

When hovering over the edge of your clips in the Main Track, you’ll have the ability to choose the type of edit you want to do - either a ripple trim or a roll trim. To choose which edit you want, wait for the cursor to change and then click down on your clip edges. When you hover to the left edge you’ll be doing a ripple remove, the right edge a ripple add and the middle is a roll trim.

  • Ripple trim: A Ripple trim, as described, is when all content downstream of your trim will move in sync, with this edit you are increasing or decreasing the overall duration of your Scene.

  • Roll trim: A Roll trim will change the outpoint of the outgoing clip while simultaneously changing the In point of the incoming clip. No other content is rippled since you’re only changing where one clip starts and another ends.

  • When hovering over the edge of clips in Secondary Tracks, you can Roll trim clips that are adjacent or do a Simple trim on standalone clips, these trims will never ripple any of your downstream content.

  • Simple trim: Once you click down on the edge you can simply drag to trim or you can use the Right and Left arrow keys to trim one frame at a time.

Split your media

Aside from trimming, Splitting your media is another alternative to making a precise cutdown to your edit. Once you split your media you can select the section you do not wish to have in your edit and click [delete].

  • Split: You can also enter a split mode by clicking on the scissors icon on the left side tool bar or using shortcut key [c]. Once you see a plus sign (+) appear, click down on the media to create a split.

  • Split at timecode: If you don’t want to enter a split mode, you can also make an instant split on the media using shortcut key [x].

    💡 Note: In the Main Track you can Insert gaps between clips by selecting an edge and choosing Add Gap. This allows you to leave gap as a placeholder, or as a spacer between clips. Gap only exists in the Main Track. A gap can be trimmed, split and deleted just like any other content.

Position, scale or crop in the preview player

In the preview player, you might want to reposition the subject. Select the media clip you want to adjust and simply click down on the preview player and either drag your mouse around or use your right and left arrows to move the subject. From here, you can scale up or even crop the selected clip.

Precisely control and clean your audio

Scenery lets you adjust your audio to your liking. To give your audio a boost, select your audio clip and simply drag up on the audio bar. Dragging the audio bar down will decrease your volume. You can also manually adjust your audio in the properties panel under the section labeled “audio”.

The standard audio level of your audio mix (all of your audio combined) should normalized between -6db to -12db. Take a look at the meter next to your preview player to see where your audio levels are hitting.

Within the audio section of the properties panel, “Clean Audio” will remove background and ambient noise.

Adjust color and apply team LUTs

  • You can apply basic color correction, white balance or an already stored color LUT to any clip within your edit.

  • Select the clip you’d like to adjust and within the color effects section in your properties panel, alter accordingly.

Add shapes, transitions, effects, and animations

💡 Note: To add shapes, transitions, effects, and animations, navigate to the icons on the left-hand tool bar that read: “Open Shapes” & "Open Transitions, Effects, Animations".

  • Shapes can elevate your story by giving your audience an appealing graphic to focus on. Like titles, explore from a variety of shapes and drag a shape onto a Secondary track above your Main Track

  • Transitions create a smooth feel from one clip to another. From the Transition, effects, and animations library, drag a transition between any two assets on your timeline.

  • Effects give your story a look that your raw video couldn’t naturally capture. Drag and effect onto any clip and fine tune within the properties panel.

  • Animations up level elements like shapes, titles, and media clips on your timeline. With animations, you can customize its duration, scale, fade, direction, and more. Choose which animation you want and drag it onto the element you want to animate. Adjust the animation’s build in and build out within the properties panel.

Import any Green Screen, ProRes animation or Lottie file

  • If you have any pre-built green screen graphics, you can import these assets and apply the “chroma key filter” within effects to key out the green screen

  • If you already have pre-built title wipes or animated graphics saved in another location, you can import those as a ProRes or Lottie (.JSON) file into scenery and drag it to your timeline. This asset will then appear as an overlay.

4. Finally, it’s time to let others take a look at your masterpiece. When you’re ready to export, click export and finalize your video with a specific naming convention, resolution and quality of your choice.

  • Once the export is complete, you can push the video directly to YouTube
