Hi, I'm new to all this and i apologise now if I have put this thread in the wrong place! Not only am I new to video editing but I am also new to the concept of forums. Forgive me.......
Anyway, onto the problem. I play a Yamaha DTExpress IV electronis drum kit and I am wanting to make a play-along video for YouTube. This will involve me palying along to a song which I will also want on the video. I have tried this using my Samsung VP-DF351 camcorder. Here's what I did:
I played the original cd track and recorded it through channel 1 of my Tascam 4-Track recorder. Then I played the kit along to it on channel 2. The audio out jack had a cable sending all of this audio into the Mic jack on my camcorder whilst also obviously videoing the performance. Hope I explained that properly. I then ran it through a Firewire connection to my PC (1.2G RAM and around 5G Hard-disc space) and used Windows MovieMakerto save it and then put onto YouTube. My problem is that everytime I do it I get dropped frames and it speeds up in places. The camera View screen is broken but I don't think that would have any effect as when i view what is on the tape, it is all fine.
I have done this before with an acoustic kit and my videos came out fine and I used the same gear. Little plug-If you wish to view these enter DRUMSMITH81 into YouTube search.
I have just put extra RAM in from what a friend suggested but it was the same after. Please help if you can. I only want to show my videos....... Any help wil be very appreciated. Hopefully, Craig
