This is a first "serious" video editing attempt. It's a Top 50 singles video. How can it be made better?



Thank you in advance.

Audio tip: Fade the audio out partially then transition into the next track. It's a bit jarring having it stop between the clips.

Like the intro/exit. Shinny :)

Okay. Here is a second attempt. Is it any better?

Yeh, that seems far less jarring to me. :)

The audio transitions in the original video are too jarring (as mentioned), while in the second video they're a bit messy. Ideally the audio should start to fade out while the next track is faded in so that there is a clear transition period, as currently you can't distinguish between the two. Other than that, it's well put together. :)

PS - Personally I like the video fading out to black, though the transition should be quicker.

Second is better than the first - less jarring like others have said. Transitions between songs though....either go faster or remove them.

Looking at other ones done by other people, most drop to the next song with no transition. One in particular puts the video about half a second before the next song starts. This gives the viewer a chance to see what is next and then be given the song right after. So, a slight stop between songs but nothing jarring.

Honestly though, whatever feedback you are getting on Youtube as well is good to go by too and I saw plenty of positive feedback there. :)
