Has anyone tried a proper video light? I am thinking of starting some videos when I move to my new house, and I would probably get one of those.


Proper video light,like pro top/cannon or som?
It's great for video clips but it makes too heavy shadow,might be an issue mellow.gif

I have contacted dexel lighting in Argentina because I want to improve my lesson's light condition they suggested me to have two lights. First a 650 / 1000 watts fresnel and other one cheaper that they call here mini light to fill the shadows.

I bought a stand light (150W)at Home Depo and it costed me about $15.
It works just fine.
Sitting close to the light makes a big difference, too.

Here is "before & after" visiting Home Depot.

Before
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DfOoyI8RblU
After
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMq7gNzHNJ8

I tried to find a similar one that I got, but all I found are more expensive. I guess the one i got was on sale or somthing.

Yeah the difference is huge! But you really needed it Kosei as your first video is just too dark. Now it is great!

This is an awesome and very helpful topic - thanks! smile.gif

Regarding the uploads - the upcoming lesson maker will be a completely new interface. Henrik's plan is to offer an extra ftp application which will allow you to upload a whole folder containing all the files for a lesson (zipped or unzipped).

This won't speed up the actual bytes/s but it will allow you to do something else while uploading.

If you can't wait - then I suggest you go for Lavendell's suggestion which does the same thing...

Hehe thanks for asking Muris! biggrin.gif

We have got a lot of things planned - we can of course say for sure all of this will be in it, but:

students view:

*new layout
*custom chat inside each lesson
*notpad for students
*more lessons from instructor
*metronome
*recorder
+ lots of small extra video features

The instructor view will more look like a module based interface where you move things around in the same view as the student!

I look forward to show something as we get going - it will of course take a long time before we can show you anything... smile.gif

I use a cheap 500W reflector halogen lamp, and i don`t need anythig else. It is not very expencive, you can buy it easely in any ligth store.

Lot of great ideas for making lessons smile.gif I record the main thing in audio, programm the backings, do the GP, do the text tab (the most anoying part for me). then a record video and audio together and mix it up with the backings.

You can easily export text tab from GP. After you are done tabbing with GP, simply go to File->Export>ASCII and make sure you name the file like "tab.txt". *.txt extension is very important to put in the file name to get a proper txt file.

Gear, cheap 500 w halogen lamp, handycam, and mic to mixer to daw.
First film the lesson, sync the audio. then write lesson on finale, export to midi, export to gp5.
Then decide into how many pieces I´ll slice the explanations.
Write down explanations
Print with big leter explanation
Make a long video shot with all teh explanation toguether to dont get lost I print the explanations with big font, and put it on a music stand out of the view of the camera. I take my time here, play every chunk 3 times.
Sync the long shot audio with film.
Slice long film to get the finals video. I open a work pad an write for example chunk x start time, finish time
and so on.
I upload all in order, and after that let pass a day or two and check the lesson as if I were a regular user to check for mistakes. Even then a lot of mistakes pass trough.

Just found out what really works nice for me.
We all know that GP is probably most unloved part of making lesson biggrin.gif
And so I make GP file right after I "figure out" the lesson,
then I work on backing,record videos etc.

You know,it's quite sad,you do all the work enjoyed it,record videos,do editing
and than you have to make GP file.

So do it first wink.gif

I write GP at the end, while uploading. I don't have anything to do then anyway. I'm uploading and editing and making the GP file on the go.
