So on July 28th I decided to take on the challenge of daily vlogging in August #VLAUGUST and it was mostly inspired by a couple of cool daily vloggers (Cody Wanner & Joshua Hubbard) who are very inspirational, motivated dudes (I highly recommend checking them out on YouTube).
I knew in order to be able to do this on daily basis I had to improve my editing workflow. I never realized how messy I was with my footage until I started working on this process.
First things first, I wanted to be able to work on my edit on my desktop and my laptop easily without having to import the footage into both computers. So I decided to use an external hard drive, where I load my footage on along with my Adobe Premiere project file, that way I can plug in the hard drive to either computer and start editing.
Next, I needed to organize my footage to make easy for me to know where to grab my B-Roll , my main footage, my drone shots, my effects, etc.
Each video (vlog) will get its own folder and within that folder, the footage will be organized in their own subfolders.
Adobe Premiere Project
Next, we're going to take that same folder structure and apply inside of Premiere project to keep things consistent and organized (Pro Tip: color code your folders/footage in premiere to make it easier to identify.
Export & Upload
Now that you edited your video and rewatched your whole timeline to make sure everything looks good, it's time to export and upload to YouTube.
What's cool is that in Premiere you can set it to auto-publish to YouTube when the video is exported. (In publish tab, you can select YouTube, channel, playlist, Title, etc)
Now that your video is done and uploaded to YouTube its time to update your thumbnail, tags and all of the SEO fun. (Search Engine Optimization
And that's it!
