Hi everyone, I have a few questions, and I hope you guys will be able to offer a few pointers to this video newbie....
I have a reasonable amount of general PC expertise, and have worked with still images (mostly for website stuff) but have no previous experience of video work.
I need to produce some clay shooting videos to help promote a new business venture. These do not need to be MGM quality, but smooth transition from clip to clip, the ability to edit out any rubbish, and add a commentary and possible some low volume background music is what I’m aiming for initially.
Ive bought a JVC GZ-MG175E/EK HD Camera, and have the bundled software that comes with it - CyberLink Power Director Express, CyberLink PowerProducer etc. Ive seen the posts about the .mod file extensions and converting them..
1st Question - given my objectives - is the bundled software a) good enough for what I want & b) easy enough for a newbie to understand - I expect I will need to register it to get at all the functionality, but before doing so I wanted some advice as to whether my money would be better spent on different editing software??
Hope you can offer me a few tips
Thanks in advance
