Hi there!

I thought this one deserved a thread in the forum as well biggrin.gif

Thanks alot David, Muris and Gabriel for putting this tutorial together.

I really hope this will help our instructors improve their video quality.

I also hope it will inspire you to record some videos for our Student Instructors Board! biggrin.gif If you are interested in doing so but not sure how to - be sure to check with Smells as he will help you out.

Looking forward to your videos,
Kris

Excellent tutorial guys, i was most interested in the lighting scheme because that seems to be the achilles heel of the vid process. Thanks a bunch for the pointers.

I would like to add my two cents to the process about a third option for recording vid to computer. This is what i currently do. i have taken out the edit aligning process by buying an S video to USB adaptar for my camera my camera which is a Sharp VLSD-20 has the option of taking stills or video. What i do is put it in camera mode and hook up the camera to my interface.

I am currently using just Movie maker which comes with Windows XP, with the camera on i just capture what the camera sees i set it to also record audio, i set it to "Stereo mix" in the capture menu when asked. I have my guitar plugged into my computer line in from my GNX 3.

When i am ready to capture the video i just hit play on windows media player where i have my backing track prepared as an MP3 and hit the capture button on the movie maker.

By doing it this way i dont have to align the video to the audio because its being recorded in real time. Of course the downside is if you mess up you have to start over. I try to practice my lesson over and over until i can do it without stopping and playing it exactly the way i want.

When doing the sections part and the extended angles my brother helps me with the camera work so i dont have to bounce back and forth like a rabbit.

I record all my backing tracks using Sonar 4 PE i mostly do guitar and bass work by hand. But in an instance where i want keyboard i will write it out in Guitar pro and export it as midi into Sonar and use the TTS 1 bank sounds i want. All drums are EZdrummer. I will start with a basic loop and just add hits or take them away in the piano roll.

Hey Daniel smile.gif

Thats quite interesting as I have problems with the "end" quality with windows movie maker, I can hook my camera up the same way as you describe also and yes it does take away the "syncing" element.

Once you have captured the video can you explain further what you do, the options you choose for exporting and saving the video smile.gif

Thanks

Chris

Sure, smile.gif

First off i set my camera to all the highest settings for quality etc, i also use gamma correction on the camera itself.

When i capture the video to begin with i actually capture it at 640X480 its the setting which is "Video for local playback 2.1mbs" which is double the size of what i am going to export it as. By doing this i am can of course see better how my lighting and try to get the tighest shot i can. When going to export i cut the size in half and export it under the setting "high quality video(small) which is 320X240.

What i have found is if you start out with 320X240 you have pixelation issues and artifacts. But if i capture at a much larger size and convert that video smaller it tightens it all up. Because any pixel issues i have at 640X480 go away because its shrinking.

Now i have tried capturing as an AVI at max settings at 1024X768...although it looks great it just takes up far too much space on the Hardrive. A one minute video can be as much as 400mb. If you have the storage capacity i suggest doing it that way. For me i dont have a huge hardrive its only 60gigs and with all the other applications i have and the music .wav files i have i just dont have the extra room.
