Ive not had much time to practice or play, and so in truth, my abilities have dropped a good amount, but that doesnt stop me from expanding my mind and learning a bit of videography.

Ive recently made an entry on my website on my website and called it Recording Tips and Techniques, where I pour out the contents of my mind and talk about how I make my videos and some concepts that I use... however its kind of evolved in to a display of how I made music videos at this point in my education, with lots of what I think is good info that I wanted to share.

Basically in a under 3 minute video we get to see and hear the 5 basic phases of a single camera video and hear Ed rip through a beautiful song.  

The 5 parts are:
1 - basic captured video with audio from the camera mic
2 - color grading the video
3 - synching the basic Zoom F4 audio
4 - mastering that audio
5 - adding a little bit of animation to the video

[video=youtube]
Best results are heard using headphones, and video is not the highest quality, I just exported a 720P file, so it wont look good on a 4K, 27 screen but should look good at the 720P size.

To be completely honest Terry, it is not all that much more complex to do split-screen on high-end software than it is to do on the low-end software.  First off, I am a PC user, so I dont know about Apple software, but once you have the basics, you have the basics, and a split-screen video is more on the advanced side of things.


That said, my choice for lowest to highest:
3 - Filmora
2 - Pinnacle Studio
1 - Davinci Resolve (free version)

#3 and #2 are relatively cheap software that are easy to use.  I would NOT use any high end 1080P or 4K footage with #3 and #2 as they all have issues handling it efficiently unless you have a more recent (read more powerful) computer.  Davinci Resolve can be used on even mid-level laptops and can work well with big 4k files using what is called Proxies.


Davinci Resolve is a pro level software, a touch harder to learn... but there is a FREE version and there are tons of tutorials out there on YouTube.  This is the software I used to make my green-screen/split-screen video.

I went from Pinnacle Studio to Premiere Pro to Davinci Resolve but I am at the point that my cameras shoot larger 4K files and I needed an app that could support editing them.

Just to help you make a decision:

PS. I just learned that we are not allowed to post more than 1 video per message, thats a bit of a bad choice, like in this post, or if someone wanted to make a post with a series of videos of the same topic, it would have to be spread out amongst multiple posts.

I most definitely am going to do multi camera setups. The challenge thère is the background. Too much to the side and I am off my backdrop and showing my Bowflex. .. lol

Doing splitscreen sis possible but requires 4 or 6 large video clips per project adding complexity. A couple of my videos already use 2 cameras but now that I have two 4k cameras it is going to be if higher quality. I think my best video is either going to be in a big indoor space like a church or outdoors. :)
