After you’re back from your trip, the first thing you need to do before editing your video is organise all the clips you took. Save all the video clips in a folder on your phone, laptop, and remember to back it up on your storage device or cloud. Once you are done organising and troubleshooting your video clips, you can finally begin the editing process.
