Go Ask Erin - Video Editing in Lightroom 5 - Tutorial

Q: I'm a still shooter, but have amassed a bunch of video clips that I have no idea what to do with. I don't want to learn new software just for video. What can I do with video in Lightroom?A: You can do everything you need to make a basic edit, color correct, and export - all with the same skills you already know in Lightroom 5. Ain't technology grand? Just when you think you're getting the hang of still photography, along comes video and knocks you on your patootie. The same thing happened to me with skiing and snowboarding. Never fear. Lightroom 5 is a fantastic jumping off point for video dabblers who don't want to miss out on all the fun, but who are primarily still shooters without the time or ambition to tackle a completely new piece of software. In Lightroom 5, it's easy to trim video clips, capture still frames, and even make solid color correction to your videos without having to reinvent your workflow. You can use all the skills already at your command to make your videos the best they can be, and export them to share. Topics covered include setting in and out points on video clips, choosing a poster frame for the video thumbnail, synchronizing develop module changes from jpeg to video, and exporting.
