Why start a freelance video editor?
There are so many options, but the main reasons why you might feel inspired to get started as a freelance video editor is the following…
You want a job that pays well and is flexible.
You want to be able to make your own schedule.
You want to be able to find your own project quickly.
You’re willing to learn about more than just video editing.
You want to see what others are doing and how they’re using 3DS Max for 2D video.
What’s your take on this “why” question?
Well, I think one main reason is that not too long ago if you wanted to get started as a freelancer or editor, you needed to know how to code and know that you could find a job as a professional.
However, as we’ve seen in recent years in the video industry, that has changed.
The market is so competitive if you’re just getting started as a new freelancer, so many freelancers are looking to build up their portfolio.
Plus, having to buy and learn an entire language in order to get started is a huge commitment.
This is why you usually see freelancers start out as 2D programmers.
But, as you become a professional or even have that skillset, I think it’s becoming more and more common to see freelancers using 3D software.
A lot of freelancers are starting out using 3DS Max. Here’s another tutorial on this topic
As you can see, getting the basics is a great way to start. It saves up a lot of time getting started and helps you build your skills in a much quicker span of time.
In addition, you can leverage your 3DS Max skills to create your own content, in the video industry.
