A video with long takes will edit quicker than one with many insert edits and jump cuts. Likewise, dramatized videos with many different angles and takes will require more editing time. Factors that may affect the ratio are: how many cuts per minute, the complexity of audio, will there be motion graphics services required, how much color correction and finessing will be needed.
A music video production, broadcast Intro, short film, promotional video or commercial, for example, have a lot of rapid edits and intricate montage sequences, which increases the editing time and cost factor.
A typical workflow may include the following video editing services:
Importing video/clips, logging and identifying selects
Input and revisions
Color enhancement, motion graphics, sound effects, sound mix, and quality control
Final review, rendering time, exporting, and delivery of compressed video via upload to specified platform or download to client’s external hard drive.
