    Hi. My name is Alan and I'm 67 years old recently retired from Liverpool. I like music and I am current teaching myself Cubase Artists 8 on imac.

I am looking to learn some video editing and I was looking for some advice on the best suite to start with for a beginner or any video editing courses i could enrol on, either physical or virtual? Thank you in advance Alan

    I’m looking to get a better camera than what I currently have. I have the Sony HDR CX405. It’s not a bad recorder, per se, but it’s not great either. I haven’t checked the latest footage yet, but what I have seen from it so far is kinda bleh. It says it’s 1080p, but it looks 720 scaled up. If the footage is viewed on a smaller screen, it looks beautiful. Looking at it on a computer monitor, it looks like trash. Scaled up to tv size and it’s barely likable. It seems to me that at least 1/3 of...

I then connect to OBS software on my PC, and try to Go Live with one of them, but they play very Slow & Freeze up, and the audio keeps skipping! This only happens with the 4K Videos! not the HD videos that I Stream all the time. Is this 4K resolution maybe just too high for Facebook LIVE? and I do run a speed test on my Internet connection, previous to my broadcast! Thanks John

Is there any software that can detect motion in the video(i.e. someone going through the frame) and then save just that bit of video? Thanks in advance for any help!

We ride pretty regularly so get a lot of footage) so I was hoping that I could find something that I could set up once and then use for years... Sounds like it might be a bit more complicated than I'd thought though! My other solution I was considering was some kind of motion triggering on the actual recording, so I will have a look into that a bit further too. Thanks for your advice!

    There probably is but you need something more specific than you have stated. In the example you have given there is only the beginning and about one 15 sec period in the middle where there is no motion. So you'd need somehing that can detect motion within a specific part of the image. But that most likely won't be enough as you'd want to see several frames before and several frames after that. Quite honestly, you'll probably spend as long setting up the paraneters as you would going through...

    You won't find a plug in to do that - it's done manually and is quite a bit of work. 1. Copy the video to two tracks. 2. On the upper track play forward until you get to the point where you want the second image (which up to that point will eventually be the "still" version of teh model) to start moving. Let's call this the "merge frame" as this is the point where the two videos will become one. 3. Create a still image of that frame. 4. Delete everything on the upper track that is before...

    Most likely you can manually change the refresh rate of your monitor. Mine is kind of old so it's stuck at 60 Hz unless I lower the resolution a few steps below the native resolution, at which point I get the option of 75 Hz. That might mesh better with 50 Hz.
