What is post-production and what does it include?

It is able to add connotative meaning and tension to the video, make the viewer think out what is happening on the screen. Also, the editing process includes cutting out unnecessary shots.
- Voice and sound editing. This process includes putting a soundtrack over the footage, the voice acting done by professional actors (if required), the addition of audio effects and music tracks.
- Color correction. For a better perception of the picture, in order to give the video an appropriate mood and artistic style, professionals use a wide range of tools for processing the material.
- Keying. If a chromakey (“green screen”) was used when shooting a video, it will be replaced with an active background at the post-production stage.
- Adding visual effects and animation. To make the video more spectacular, according to the requirements approved with the customer, we add the necessary special effects or animated elements (both two-dimensional and three-dimensional).
- Subtitling. Adding subtitles to video is not only important for translating foreign audio tracks, but also for the accessibility of your videos to people with hearing loss.
