Framing and compositon, the rule of thirds, the guideframe, all aim at one thing, making better video. This episode of QuickTips discusses the Rule of Thirds.

  2. Great video. I’ve posted it on my blog.

    I wish there was a tag or category or something for your QuickTips series, though. They’re really quite good.

  3. Thanks Cody, glad you find them helpful. I’m just trying to pass along what I know video and audiowise and am always open to suggestions.
