Hey guys! This week we are working on the assignment: Editing Video.
In this assignment, we are using Screencast-O-Matic which is a free online screen share for instant screen capture. Allowing to view not only what you see on the screen, but also, your voice recording too. You can even add in video/webcam of yourself to record to go on a more personal level to your viewers. I chose not to do that. 😉
Using two e-portfolios, I used a default website that was given as one of the choices to our assignment: Andi Banks. Looking even deeper into Google, I found an e-portfolio that certainly caught my eyes. The second portfolio choice I used: Zak James. Both very solid layouts. However, I favored James’s a bit more simply because it had more to offer. You will see why in my Screencast using Sony Vegas 12.0 to edit my video. I have not touched Sony Vegas in a while so I thought for this assignment, it gave me a chance to re-familiarize myself with the software.
Using the skills I learned to become an actual screen-caster, I learned that this can make it easier to teach others on how to use a product or anything over the web. I have relatives who are trying to keep up with the current technology but get very impatient and give up on what they are doing. With screen-casting, I can record anything on my screen and show them step by step so that they can find things easier. Not only would I begin to create tutorials for my relatives but also, I could use the skills I learned in screen-casting to make tutorials on the Internet. I know a bit of the Adobe Suite as well as a few Gaming engines that I program with. These could be creative projects I could put together in the near future.
This will most definitely benefit professors, students, YouTubers who solely make tutorials on the Internet, and viewers who are stuck and need step by step help. Hopefully I can start screen-casting more often!
Hoped you enjoyed my screen-cast. 🙂
