As video editors, we are like magicians.When magicians perform a great trick you don’t notice the sleight of hand or any of the smooth transitions employed to make a trick happen. What magicians do best is guide the audience’s attention using misdirection.We have this very same ability. Using video editing techniques to create smooth edits we can misdirect and guidethe audience’s attention seamlessly through each frame and cut.
