Compile all footage and audio.
Nameburn footage, sometimes we’ll need to run it through a compressor to change it to constant frame-rate instead of variable frame-rate, depending on how the footage is captured.
Drop nameburn-ed footage and audio into editing program.
Sync video to audio.
Place synced tracks into a new multiclip sequence.
Begin camera switching, audio mastering, cutting for time/pauses/etc.
Begin second editing pass, adjusting shots, tweaking audio, adding in additional edits, doing additional cuts.
If needed, begin third editing pass.
Final pass, watching the video as is, making sure everything is as it should be.
Adding bumpers (Intro/Outro).
Set exports to render.
As the video renders, begin creating video thumbnails.
Once everything is exported and saved, put the footage up to upload.
Painfully read the comments as Youtube un-remorsefully stabs the editor in the heart.
