Test Video Interview.

DISC Media Productions Video Team is embarking on a series of Interviews for Central Christian Church and have to test some new gear.

Finally jumped on the DSLR band wagon and got a Zoom H4n Audio field recorder to make up for the Canon DSLRs lack of audio processing abilities.

Just finishes a Mock Interview where the content is stupid but the test is real. Watch The Youtube Video leave some feedback since I believe this should show up on Facebook and TWitter etc…

Should be more test coming and I will post the results of the Audio Video setups and comparisons as I get the data on these test.

Thanks for watching!

Editing: Clean Edits

It’s easy to spot amateur video. These videos are usually unpolished, resulting in a slew of flash frames. To the untrained eye, flash frames can be hard to spot. After all, they are generally only one frame. Despite being difficult to spot, the viewer’s brain will usually register that it saw something strange.

There are a couple of reasons this happens. It’s possible that when you put the two clips together on your timeline, a single frame of black remained between the two, thus creating a blip in the action. Or possibly the edit on your clip occurred one frame too late or too soon, resulting in an additional frame at either end.

Despite the reason, there is an easy solution to avoiding flash frames in your final video; zoom into your timeline. By zooming in, you’ll be able to see the error in your cut. If you’re still having problems spotting it, try moving frame by frame through the cut in question.

Keeping flash frames out of your transitions help keep your videos looking professional. As you learn more about video production, you will discover many more mistakes amateurs make that the experts avoid. The best way to learn how to edit like a pro is to be taught by a pro. At Videomaker workshops you get the chance to learn directly from our experts.
