Thanks for the details of your video edting software & process Zafar. (Note: The above quote is just a portion of Zafar's post.)Zafar Haq wrote: Let me explain my setup for recording, editing my videos...
I have "Microsoft Movie Maker software".(Not the Windows Movie Maker 2.6). I, also have "Widows Media Encoder Software" to record video and audio. Both are free and can be downloaded from Microsoft site.
Next is Editing part...
It is done in Microsoft Movie Maker. You can use markers to preserve the video you like and delete the rest. You can add Titles as you saw in my videos. I have not use other effects yet.
Since I 'd never uploaded videos to youtube or done any video editing, I'm really a newbie to this stuff. However, I did some investigation and found the following which may help others that are in the same boat as me - that is video challenged...
- First of all, let me state that I am using my iPhone and/or iPad to record my videos. So if your using an iGadget like me, you may be surprised to know (as I was) that the stock iOS Photos app has a built-in feature for video trimming so you can easily remove portions of video clips you don't want. If you press on the video frames at the top it will show a yellow frame that can be dragged to select the portion you want to keep, then press the "Trim" button when done to remove the portions outside of the yellow frame. And you can upload the video to youtube directly from there as well.
- If you want to add a title page, the stock Photos app doesn't do that, but you can download a free app from Adobe called VideoBite, which allows you to edit/trim videos like the stock app does, and it also allows you to add a title page to the video. There seems to be a character limit as to how long the text in the title page can be, though not sure what that is. However, it should suffice in most cases
- If you happen to have a newer iGadget, you may have apple's iMovie app (for free). I don't have this app but I'm pretty sure it has tons of features for video editing. I think it costs about $5 if you want to buy it.
- Finally, as mentioned I've never uploaded videos to Youtube, but I spent some time exploring and learned that Youtube has quite a few video editing features itself. For example, you can also trim sections of videos, add titles, annotations, etc. You can even add a Text page in front of a video and republish it. So regardless of what device you are using to take the videos, you can do all the editing on Youtube itself. That being said, trimming video on Youtube is a bit slow.
I hope this helps others like me who struggled a bit with the video aspect of the first assignment... enjoy!
