    Web developers have a wide range of experience and are familiar with a variety of technologies, including Java, PHP, and ASP. However, they have to understand a variety of hardware and systems in order to properly develop a with this website. There are four main divisions among developers - those who specialize in one technology, those who specialize in another, and those who don't. The former tend to hire self-employed developers, while the latter prefer to work with large corporations.

Nothing good comes for free, so if you need to find an app suitable for your preference, you need to pay for it. We all know a bunch of free editors, but they are not doing much, and if you even have some personal requests about it, I am not sure you'll ever find something.

    This is odd, It only does it when the mic (Zoom H1N) is too close. Failed to turn on the mic (on it's own tripod) on one clip and no bounce. So tried it with the mic Handheld but two feet above and no bounce. Same indoors on test too, move the mic too close and the bounce is back. Here is a clip with the same mic, but 2-3ft above the camcorder, no bounce. https://youtu.be/vUalj-96K8s

    Although older I would definitely check out the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G70. It's more or less the same hardware as the GH4 and there's a "hack" (basically a software setting) that allows recordings over 30 minutes in 4k (most bridge and compact cameras are capped to 30 minutes for tax reasons)

    Thanks, I've had this camera since they were introduced and have never been happy with it. As it is clearly on it's way out, I've found out how to turn it into an NTSC 60fps unit, so it at least matches all modern monitors and mobile phones. I even now tack a variable ND Filter to it and do the whole twice the frame rate thing for shutter speed. The bounce is still there but not so obvious in 60fps, but the footage looks more solid, still not as good as it's competitors. I'll probably pick...

    I've worked with GH4 and GH5 footage before and it didn't have this issue on a tripod so it's not a brand wide phenomenon. It is almost certainly caused by the camera itself because it seems like a constant frequency so that usually rules out wind and vibrations. It could be the OIS has an error causing it to somehow vibrate while being off. Also, I doubt it that this is something that Panasonic wouldn't have fixed in the last +/- 5 years since the Panasonic HC-V180 was released.

But the second clip is mounted on a more solid Table top style tripod also with the stabilisation off. But it still has that slight bounce. Camera is a Panasonic HC-V180 with nothing else attached. Audio is recorded separately on it's own stand. Any guesses as to what is causing the bounce? It looks like the...

    I don't think you lose anything from not having effects. Maybe it gains a little by not distracting from the subject. I agree with the suggestion to do a sampler. Bookers don't want to spend time going through whole songs, they just need to check out a few seconds of each to get a taste and be sure you're competent.

    GoPro Studio software is no longer supported, but you can still download it. It can remove the fisheye effect from at least some GoPro files. It will crop a bit from the edges, so you need to frame the shot a little wide in anticipation.

    Creative use of a single very wide angle viewpoint with the crops. I'd crop into e.g. the singer a little sooner, for example around 59 seconds he starts to sing and you crop in a second later. Feels a bit weird to me. Don't really mind the effects but not too keen on the old film look. Would in that case rather prefer a decent black and white image instead. In terms of replacements there's a few options to consider. I am going to assume that you still want to go with a single static...

    What I like about the straight video is that it gives a true representation to a promoter of what he will be getting. If I was in his position I might think you're trying to make a live performance look livlier by adding the effects. Not necessarily a bad thing (because it shows you are putting effort into your promotional material), What i would be inclined to do is to show about 30 seconds of several songs, maybe with a complete performance of one song at the end, for if the propoter is...

    From a promotional perspective, having some kind of live performance video is practically required. You've ticked that box. Given that, I don't think the effects matter too much either way. They didn't do all that much for me, but I don't really mind them.

I wonder if you're limited to one camera capturing a performance from one angle, whether it's better just to leave it as a straight record of the event, Or possibly mix in some totally different footage? As it stands it just looks like someone trying to create something from a single shot (which I guess...

    I get the feeling that tutorial you're working with is a bit backwards. The way to do it properly as far as I know is to just select the "Audio MP3" profile. From the official VLC help pages: What the author of that tutorial is doing is using the profile to export to h264 and then adjusting the settings so it only contains audio instead of the more usual "audio + video" and then saving it into an MP3 extension. That's also why I suspect they select WAV. All the other options will ...

    A reasonable question. However there is no option to encapsulate as an MP3 and you have to choose something! From what I can ascertain Encapsulation is simply the act of putting the video and audio sources into one container. But here the container is an MP3. Except apparently MP3 is not really a container. I'm all in favour of trying to understand things, but there is a limit and I long ago reached the point with codec/containers etc where so long as I gind something that works, and words...

    For this level of work I feel 250 sounds fair or even cheap. If you'd work on the camera movement e.g. by always using a tripod or gimbal and added a bit of contrast and pop to the colourgrading, you could easily upgrade it to 400 excluding VAT (I'm assuming 250 is also ex VAT) I do hope this is just 250 for a day of shooting and that the total edit comes to around 600-700 otherwise I'd say you're undercutting the market. No matter how new you are, don't under cut the market. Sure...
