Blogging about vlogging

I'm a planner so this is where I get some thoughts out while I'm getting my video equipment squared away while also getting footage for the first vlogs to come out. I've decided to film each segment and pull them together over a week then schedule releases. That's mostly because the segments are themed. I've …

Week of Tests and Relaxing

I spent the last week testing each of my different cameras in different situations to check for picture quality, audio quality, size of files, and more. I also spent it relaxing in Florida - in addition to daily work I needed to do. Unfortunately, I couldn't get the audio I needed for several videos because …

Burn Notice Transitions First Episode and My First Vlog

Screen Recording With Screen Sound Only

Parallels Toolbar doesn't always keep the sound sync'd up and I get the external audio. With Soundflower I probably won't have this problem - …

Multicam Editing Adobe Premiere

I was editing footage for a client. They had one size footage and it was a wide shot at 1080p. I wanted to make the video more visually stimulating to the viewer by switching between a closer and wider shot. I originally took the footage and made it 1.75x larger and positioned it where I …
