Useful Tips to Record More Impressive Videos with Better Quality

Recording impressive high-quality videos may appear difficult, but it doesn’t have to be. The trick is to focus on the areas that matter the most and are likely to have the biggest impact on your video. To do that, there are a few useful tips that you should try out:

A record at a high resolution and frame rate

Before recording your video, ensure it is set to record at a high resolution and frame rate. That will allow you to capture a video that has a good definition and looks smooth. Most cameras nowadays can comfortably capture 1080p Full HD videos, but there are benefits to recording in 4K if your camera supports it. Anything above 30 should be good regarding the frame rate, but 60 can make your video look truly fluid.

Avoid any movement

Movement is never good when you’re recording videos, and it will affect the quality of your video in several ways. If you must move, try to ensure the camera moves slowly and steadily – while being kept stable at all times. It is best to keep your camera still and maybe even use a tripod to make it easier.


Improve the lighting conditions.

To record impressive videos, you need good lighting. The scene you register should be lit at a minimum, and the light source should not be in the frame. However, if you want, you could take further steps to improve the lighting and ensure it is soft and diffused. That will make the shadows smoother – which is generally what you should aim for.

Don’t forget the audio quality.

You must pay attention to its quality to record audio alongside your video. In most cases, you may need to use a good external microphone and reduce the amount of background noise.

Balance the composition with the rule of thirds.

A way to make your video look more impressive is to balance its composition using the rule of thirds. Make no mistake. All you need to do is turn on the grid on your camera and then align elements based on their lines and intersection points. Despite your best efforts, the videos you record probably won’t be ‘perfect, so you also need to be prepared to edit them afterward.

You can easily learn how to remove background noise from audio, enhance the video quality, stabilize it, and fix any other present issues. That can be done using Movavi Video Editor. Its features will also let you add background music, apply effects, insert text, and more. Applying these tips will make a noticeable difference to your videos’ quality and how impressive they look. As you can see, most are relatively basic, yet each one will greatly impact how your videos turn out.
