One Way To Create A Video And To Edit It
VideoJug user Interlac gives a great step by step account of how to create a video and edit it. Including how to upload your video to the internet, learn all you need from this helpful video.
Step 1: Welcome to the video:
Welcome! This video demonstrates one person's method of creating a video, editing it and uploading it to the internet.
Step 2: The camera:
The camera that is used is a Sony Handy cam. The Tri-pod is a Slick. This camera uses a mini-DVD. It's possible to record multiple files onto the DVD. Well to do this you turn off the 'Easy' feature on the camera and you finalize the disk. First click 'Set-up' then click 'Finalize'. Then to begin another file you 'Un-finalize' the disk. 'Easy' off, click on the 'P' menu, click on 'Set-up', click on 'Disk Set' and then click on 'Un-finalize'. In this way you fit more than one file onto the DVD. Then finally you reactivate the 'Easy' feature so that you can start using the camera again.
Step 3: Deleting segments:
It's also possible to delete the most recently recorded segment. But only the segment most recently recorded. To delete this most recently recorded segment. turn off the 'Easy' feature and start 'Playback' by clicking on the 'Loop' icon. Then look for the trash can and click on it. Then reactivate the 'Easy' feature.
Once a satisfactory recording has been made, the DVD is removed from the camera and placed in the DVD drive of a computer. To use the editor the computer should have a substantial amount of RAM. My computer which is a Hewlett Packard ZD 8110, has a gigabyte of RAM. The video file is accessed directly from the DVD drive of the computer. It is not possible to upload the file to the hard drive and access it there. "Vegas Movie Studio Platinum" is able to use the video on the DVD without any conversion. The computer has to be able to play many DVDs
Step 4: Movie studio platinum:
We've moved over now to the computer; Sony "Movie Studio Platinum" has been opened. You'll notice at the bottom of the screen that there are four different tabs. This one is called 'Project Media' anc here in this box we can list the various files that are used in the video. The second one is called 'Transitions' and you drag any one of these up to an overlapped part where two segments are joined and create a transition effect. The third one is called 'Video FX' where 'FX' really means 'Effects'. And these are different effects that can be added to the video. The fourth one is 'Media Generators'and it's here where we create titles and overlining text to be added to the video.
Step 5: Video files:
Let's go back to the 'Project Media' tab and let's bring in a video from the DVD; which has been removed from the camera and added to the DVD drive on the computer. As I said, the DVD is a mini-DVD and the computer has to be able to play mini-DVDs. To bring in the video file, you right click on 'Start', we left click on 'Explore', we get into Windows 'Explorer', then we locate the DVD drive and here we find the many files that are on the mini- DVD. The video camera puts out three files for each video. There's a .BUP file a .IFO file and a .VOB file. The files we need are the IFO file and the VOB file. So I'll restore down this window and move it over; and then I can drag the two files I need from Windows Explorer onto the 'Project Media' box. And I'll close Windows Explorer and here we have the two files.
Step 6: Audio editing:
Sony 'Vegas Movie Studio' has several different tracks which all are recorded simultaneously. There's one here for titles and overlying text. And these two are video tracks. This one is a voice or music track. Number five is also an audio track as is number six, which is labeled 'Sound Effects'. In order to move the video file upon a track you can either double click on the IFO file or we can drag, drag it onto a track. So I'll double click on it. and here we have the video track and the voice track. If you want to add back ground music you can drag a music file into the
