Experience vs Cheap Wedding Video Editing Service
If you’re looking for a good wedding video editor, chances are, you’ll be scouring the internet for good quality and cheap prices. However, those two phrases rarely go hand-in-hand. So, instead, you’ll go for a more expensive editor for better quality. And again, it’s not a guarantee that you’ll get what you want and what you paid for. So, how do you choose? Do you risk losing quality over quantity? Or do you risk paying an arm and a leg for a service you can’t guarantee? Here are a few pros and cons of both expensive and cheap wedding video editing services.
Expensive Video Editor
Pro – Resources Included
One of the reasons wedding video editors charge so much is the resources they’re going to need to edit your video. Not only does it cost approximately $50 for an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription, but if you want the trimmings that make your video unique, then your video editor will need to fork out a good chunk of money to buy those extra resources. So, why not include those additional costs into the price? That way, you won’t be surprised by any hidden charges. It’s all in there for you.

Con – It May Take Time
Unlike using a pre-made template, creating new graphics, animation and transitions may take up a lot of time and manpower. Sometimes it takes a team of editors and animators to make one seemingly simple video transition. Think about Disney and Pixar; it takes hundreds of animators collaborating with one another to get even one scene of a feature film completed, and sometimes, that one scene can take months! Of course, your wedding video may not be as bad as that, but that’s an example of what it’s like, to create unique and new templates that will work for your wedding. So, you’ll have to wait a few days or even weeks for your editor or editors to complete your video.
Pro – Quality From Trusted Sources
If you’re working with a video editor that’s trusted by others and whose reviews and testimonies are legitimate, you are guaranteed high-quality videos you can show off. Although their prices may be high, it shows how good they are at what they do. To get an idea of what your video editor is like, you can track down and trace the reviews on their website. Get the truth from the people that that editor has worked with and make sure that those testimonies are real. When you’re satisfied, you can be sure that you’ve picked the right person. You’ll have to make do with setting aside a good amount of money in case your videos need a lot of work.
Con – Rush Jobs & Scams
One of the risks you run into is ensuring that the video editor is legitimate. Sometimes a website and portfolio can look amazing. Sometimes, the number of good reviews can distract you. And sometimes, you’re in a rush, and you think you’re trusting your gut instinct. When that happens, you could end up being scammed by that video editor, and you’ll lose hundreds, even thousands of dollars on something that doesn’t even resemble the portfolio they advertised. Essentially, you’ve been ripped off, and there is no way you’re ever going to see that money again.
Cheap Video Editor
Pros – They’re Diamonds In The Rough
When you find a reasonably cheap video editor whose portfolio looks impressive and whose reviews are equally so, you’re going to be sceptical. But, when that video editor churns out a masterpiece that takes your breath away, you find yourself recommending them too. You may even go back to them for more if you’re the type to commemorate anniversaries and other special occasions. When you find a good video editor, you’ve struck gold, and you didn’t need to fork out too much to find them.
Cons – Rate Pays & Hidden Cost
One of the troubles you’ll find with cheap video editors is when you find rate costs. That means they quote hourly rates instead of a package deal. Of course, when you see these rate costs, you’ll think you’re getting a good bargain. After all, $10 an hour sounds relatively cheap. But that’s where you’re wrong. If your video editor wanted to, they could spend days, even weeks, on your video, claiming that the video effects took hours to render or create or whatever editing jargon they throw at you. Not only that, they can even add on extra charges for resources they “needed to download” to get your special effects just right. So, those cheap rates end up being just as bad, if not worse, than those expensive video editors.
Pros – They’re Best For Short Videos
If you want to upload your videos online, you’ll find that using cheap video editors can be the perfect deal for you. After all, you only need 3 minutes per video, as an average, and it doesn’t take too long to edit. So, you’re better off using a cheaper video editor because you don’t need the best quality edit for social media. As long as it’s flashy and shows off the highlights of your wedding, you should be fine.
Cons – More Scams
With cheaper options, you get more scams. While it may only be a few dollars, it’s still more likely a scam because those dollars seem like easy money. If you think about it, if other engaged couples decide to use their “services” as well, they’ll get even more money because they scammed those couples too. So, even if they seem like a legitimate video editor, you can never be too sure that it may all be a front.
