Video editing

To create your own movie on your computer you must have a recording device connected to your computer.

You can use, nowadays, also external devices connected on your USB port. But if you want to have a good quality you need an USB 2.0 port on your computer / laptop.

There are also some hardware cards that you can insert in your computer.

After doing this, you will also need a hard drive with enough space and a fast CPU and a good sound card as wel. But even having the right hardware you will need the right software tool to do the job.

I like to work with Ulead Mediastudio Pro version 7 to do all the editing.

Make short movies

The most important thing when you want to create a movie, video clip, documentary or what ever is that you must keep in mind that you get the best result when you can show different views from the same location.

The best way to do such a thing (when only using one camera) is to take serval "snap shots" from the scene you want to share with your audience.

If you film from just one spot, the audience will be bored and if you move to much with your camera, your audience won't see the end of your creation.

So don't make a scene to long and record it from different spots. Don't be afraid to cut your movie in different chapters. Professionals create a story board and on the end they will past the different chapters into one storyline on their computer.

With programs like Ulead you do the same.

So good luck!
