3 Great Tips for Outsourcing Video Editing Service

big size not a problem

Size needn’t be a problem when editing videos.

Many business owners shy away from outsourcing video editing services to overseas professionals because of the file sizes involved.

Editing can be a fascinating task, but so time consuming, that you need to have some help or you won’t find time for the other important tasks which will enable your business to grow.

A video editing service contractor can save you a lot of valuable time and in fact there are ways to outsource video editing effectively using a mixture of common sense and some web tools that are available these days. You simply need to decide what editing to outsource overseas and what to keep in-house.

Firstly, before deciding how to edit a video, consider whether the quality needs to be the highest, how long it is and what the file size is as these will vary for different types of video.

You may like to keep in-house the editing needed for high quality corporate videos. On the other hand, you might have to use a specific video editing service for videos made specifically for driving traffic to your website. They will sit on YouTube and other video hosting sites, the quality demanded will not be as high and there will be limits on the length of the video, which will influence the file size. These types of videos may be just the type that can be sent overseas for editing.

Of course you want a great job done for any videos you make, but you can change the way you edit videos by considering their intended use and the quality they need to be.

There are a number of different tools you can use to send larger files overseas. There is You Send It, which is one of the most popular and secure online sharing software products that allows you to easily send large files and email attachments from a desktop or mobile device. Then you have Transfer Big Files which allows you to send and share large files that are generally too large to email. It allows you to upload a file to their servers and it sends a link to a page where the file then can be retrieved by the recipient.

DropBox is a web based file hosting service that uses cloud storage to enable users to store and share files and folders with others across the internet using file synchronization. There are free and paid services, each with varying options.

Log Me In is another service which allows you to provide a contractor with access to your computer so the editing can be done remotely on your worktop. Team Viewer, another service,  connects to any PC or server around the world within a few seconds. You can remote control your partner’s PC as if you were sitting right in front of it.

Another very effective way to share large files is to use FTP. This is a standard network protocol used to transfer files from one host to another over the internet. FTP is built on a client-server architecture and utilizes separate control and data connections between the client and server.

Whether to outsource your video to professional video editing companies overseas or handle your video editing service in-house will depend largely on the production quality you’re after and the ease with which you can provide access to the files.
