    For your budget, that all looks entirely sensible and the physically separate back up is your ultimate rescue plan. I’m my experience, you will get drive failures and that includes SSDs. Similar to you, I work on the basis of having multiple physical copies. I start with the SSDs used for capture, which I keep until I’m confident everything is transferred. I transfer this to another SSD for editing, which is kept for the duration of the project. I also transfer all files to a RAID5 drive, which...

    Hello, I am looking to start making travel related youtube videos and I am a complete novice. The main problem I am running into is trying to find high quality video clips to use in my videos. The free video images tend to be very low quality and when I add them into Movavi Video Editor, they don't even cover the full screen for youtube. I'm not against paying for high quality video clips as long as they will fit the full screen and they are of high quality. What sites do you recommend for high...

    Digital audio and video devices have clocks in them that they use to determine when to capture an audio sample or video frame. They're generally very precise (as in a particular clock doesn't vary over time), but they're not all perfectly accurate (as in one clock might measure a second slightly differently from another clock). So if you record audio on something like a Zoom recorder and video on a camcorder, there's going to be drift. How long it takes before the drift becomes noticeable...

    Going back to camcorders, from Bridge cameras, I need a Mic small enough to sit on a Panasonic cold shoe (the plug in the back type). I know the Zoom H1n has a very hissy/noisy output from the 3.5mm jack, but is the H2n the same? I'll still record it on the memory card, but it would be great if I could feed in direct into the camcorder itself.

    I think any modern editor can do that as long as it can output to the format you need. Just add a black still on the timeline and set the duration of it to one frame and then render.

    Hi!! So we recently shot a film using the RED Scarlet and have just begun post production. However, there is a major issue with the audio that no one seems to know how to fix: the audio will start of synced with the slate and then as the clip goes on it'll become exponentially more unsynced. We did find a somewhat solution: slowing down the audio by a few small percentages seems to do the trick, but I'd love to know if there's a better way to fix this issue/why it's happening in the first...

I'm doing this to create a simple mod, where all the unskippable intro movies in the game MVP Baseball 2005 are replaced by this short mute blank file that's only 0.1/2 seconds long. Seeing how the game plays three unskippable movies consecutively that are around ~5 seconds long, this mod would be such a relief to have. ...

I tried today first time, editing on Adobe premiere, literally added the raw files, added a soundtrack no traditions, just a test, set the export file to h264 , 29. fps and the output seems inadequate, grainy. I even set rendering to Cpu. any suggestions on what msybe the issue, I want the output match the raw file quality. thanks in advance.

    Size in inches is only relevant for printed material. On a computer screen it's all about ppi and 96 is about right. You now have to decide on the largest screen resolution you are likely to have it displayed on (eg 4K, 1920x1080) and design it for that. Having said that 1920x1080 wont look dreadful on a 4K screen.

    What you're looking for is something with AI enhancing (like the Topaz Labs product Video Enhance, which you may be referring to above). Basic video editors cannot introduce detail that isn't there. Until very recently doing what you're trying to do would be impossible. Now with AI, some software tries to does exactly that. How successful it is depends very much on the footage you start with, the AI driven processing involved and your own interpretation of "successful". Remembre, these will...

    Mike I strongly recommend doing a quick test recording with both audio and visual indications. Neither tell the whole story on their own. I know whenever I try to short cut this I regret it. Record a bit and play back though headphones as well as watching the level indicators. A couple more minutes at the beginning of the session may just save you from having to re-record the whole lot. Also, if possible, (and I can see the R6 has a headphone jack) monitor the audio with headphones while...

    An excellent choice. Experiment with different mic placements and make sure you check the recording levels before going for a take. Err on the side of caution - recording too quitely can result in increased background noise, but at least this can be addressed. Recording too loud results in clipping which (like overblown highlights in video) cannot be fixed in post.

    Only in the context of what you've written above (as a turorial itself it woudn't work at all) I wouldn't sweat the videoi quality too much. The sound is pretty poor though. Forget tidying up the in camera mic. Get a mic close to the piano. Even something like a Zoom H1 will improvie on this. Syncing is really not difficult. Make a sharp nose (clap) which will create a spike in the wafeform of both the video's audio track and that of the avudio only recording - easy to line up. Having said...
