Hence you should always edit your video to discard unnecessary parts out. Your video should be able to tell a story flawlessly to your audience. Unrelated and lengthy footages can have detrimental effects on attracting organic followers and views. From beginning to end, your video should have a sequential flow; every part of your footage should seem relatable. If you want to add some part into your video, you should do it very skillfully so that it looks to be a part of your whole timeline and not abrupt or sudden. You need to be tactful to edit videos for YouTube, the length of your video should not be very long, and it may turn your viewers away.

Your transition from one scene to another should always feel natural and smooth. Sudden and unnecessary transitions in a video can hurt your audience. The main agenda of video making is to express a message or to narrate a story to your audience.
