I am quite tech savvy (geeky) but have no experience when it comes to recording and editing video. I am planning to put together an elearning site and would really welcome some advice on hardware and software.
The videos will be an hour long and be a combination of people speaking to camera, powerpoint presentations (animated and annotated within the video not as clickable standalone presentations) and domeonstrations of Excel (again within the video).
Each video will be around an hour long and I think I'll eventually have around 100.
I would like a recommended shopping list for:
1) Camera to use to film the people plus other equipment such as microphone, tripod and things I'm not thinking of
2) Hardware to use to edit the sessions. Including computer and screen(s)
3) Editing software that's relatively easy to pick up but can still bring together and sync all of the elements and superimpose a site logo
4) good software that can capture the powerpoint and excel parts as a video file (I've looked at a few of these already so this isn't as important to me as the first three)
I want to buy equipment that will do the job effectively and quickly, particularly when it comes to the editing but I don't want to pay for something massively advanced with a lot of features I'll never use.
My budget is around £5,000, I would love to get set up for less and will try and go higher if you come back and say I'll get nothing for that price.
I appreciate this is a big request, I've searched through the forum and can't find anything recent that can help me.
