DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that the first video editors used to connect video scenes by physically cutting and taping together the 2-inch magnetic tapes? The first videotape format is the 2-inch quadruplex which was released by Ampex in 1956. Research shows that videotape editing was first done without making use of electronic editing, audio dubbing, and even slow and fast motion tool, hence, making editors to literally cut and splice 2-inch magnetic tapes to accomplish video editing. It was the company Smith-Editor, a mechanical splicing station, which helped improve the process of editing and final tape. Meanwhile, Ampex released the VR-2000, a tool that is capable of electronic edits. This was one of the first electronic editing machines and it was called the Editech system by Ampex. This tool had also lessened the hassle of splicing tape. Nowadays, there are several popular video editing software and apps which one can be used to do the fast and slow motion techniques. In addition, software these days are much easier to use, compared to the manual cut-and-splice of magnetic tapes in the earlier times of video-editing. For instance, a video editor installed in a computer is capable of reversing videos. According to Mavitech, reversing videos is gaining massive momentum because some find it entertaining.
