Week 6/7: Video Editing

xtitnzehdr9y9pnyc8

^ Me when we were given to freedom to write about anything this week, as long as a video is included. And did somebody said video ??? DOUBLE YES! Talking about videos is something right up my alley.

Things that provided me with an creative outlet have always sparked my interest. Creating videos is one of them. To fuel my interest in video creation, I bought myself a compact camera late last year. Compact cameras, although not the best in the market, provides adequate functions to film vlogs – which was exactly what I was going for. So here’s what I bought!

The Sony DSC-WX500. I feel that this camera is value for money plus it fits my skill level (meaning I’m not handling a DSLR when I do not have the skills to do so). With this new toy of mine, I brought it when I went overseas/visit places of interest in Singapore.

It went along with me to trips to Japan, Batam as well as Sentosa and caught a whole lot of footage. As said before, I was interested in producing content. Therefore, I wanted to compile my footages into a single video. In doing so, I choose to use Sony Vegas Pro 13 to edit my videos.

This is an example of how the software looks.

Complicated? That’s what I thought so when I first used it. But in time I became familiar with how the software works and discovered nifty shortcuts – and this was all due to the help of the YouTuber JustAlexHalford. Remember last week when I thought about e-Learning and YouTube? Well, if you are unsure of how to use softwares like Sony Vegas Pro, you can search the “How-to” videos on YouTube, and in no time, you will be an expert in using these softwares.

Some other video editing softwares that are popular include Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere Pro. However, all these softwares require users to purchase it. Still, they also offer trials so you can get a taste of using the software without having to spend money.

After all my rambles, I finally get to the part where I can show you my video.

Here’s a video I did for my trip to Batam. And if you’d like, you can check out a video I did when I went for Sentosa for a day trip.

I’m in the learning process of creating videos, and there’s many videos out there that inspire me to up my video editing game. This is one of them. My fellow classmate, Asyraf, also does amazing videos.

One day, I aspire to create beautiful and interesting content for others to see! But I prolly have to get my school work done to squeeze out time to complete videos and to hone my skills. It may be tiring to do up even one video sometimes. Gotta stay committed!

With that I conclude this post.

See ya on the next post friends! (:
