Have you ever wondered how professionals shoot hours, days, weeks, and sometimes months worth of footage and still keep their useable footage organized? They stay organized by sorting their 'selects.'
In this video I'll show you how I personally sort my selects, and I'll show you how I stack my timelines so that I can pull directly from my selects to make my final edit.
What are 'selects?'
'Selects' is a word that videographers and photographers use to describe the raw photos or footage that they're likely to use for their edits.
Why sort 'selects?'
If you're a professional who wants to stay organized and have your best footage readily viewable and available, then you should be sorting your selects.
Sorting your selects before you start editing is one of the best steps you can take to stay organized and produce the best possible edit.
