I must say, what a great camera for filming videos,Take a look for yourself... and download magic lantern aswell

Preshe8 feedbacks, i must also say, the song, made up 1 hour before the shoot, and it was the first shoot i used..so thats why its bad:| practise next time ,...note to self

I need to download magic lantern again to my 550D. It's a great add on.

Congratulations on getting new gear! That camera and mic are really great for video recording.
Your video already looks upgraded and more professional due to sharp picture with nice depth of view effect from the lenses.

Currently the audio is still a bit problematic. I'm noticing that your voice is clipping the mic due to gain setting being too high. Try experimenting with a good microphone position when recording, place it somewhere close to both your guitar and head so that you can capture both guitar and voice well. You don't necessarily need to record a nice video angle. You could experiment by taking the microphone off the camera for this initial take where audio is critical and placing it on a mic stand or something similar for best position.

Once you have an audio track which sounds nice to you, my suggestion would be to do some "production" on it in your audio recording software (you can export audio only from video editing software you use). Try adding EQ, Compressor, bit of reverb etc to make the audio recording sound nice.

When you have a cool sounding audio track, you can record the following videos "on playback" when making the final one for Youtube.

I like the song very much and you have great energy in this one! smile.gif

CONGRATS!!!! Video Looks great smile.gif Sound cold use a tweak or two. You could try to record the music in to your computer as you run video and that way you could mix the audio and add fx. Make sense?

I used to have it. I don't know why I deleted it from the camera again. I must have had some sort of reason for it.

hey todd cool.gif

tnx man smile.gif the sound could deff need a tweak....
i think i know what you mean.... after i found nice video clip with good audio.. i can then mix the audio.
cause i got a software called Squared 5, that convert the video to an audio file..
so if i copy the video file on my pc, use the other copy to convert to an audio file trough the square 5 software, i could tweak the sound and add fx ?. and then match them in final cut ?

does it make sense ? dry.gif huh.gif

I would suggest trying to "MULTI TRACK" The audio so record vocals on one track, then record guitar on another track. That way you can EQ and use FX on each channel and tweak levels. Then export that and marry it to the video using FINAL CUT PRO.

So record in something like REAPER while shooting video.

Then mix the audio in reaper.

Export audio to a single file.

Import audio to final cut and synch up to video.

Export the whole video with audio and upload to youtube smile.gif

Make sense?

Todd
