Examples of your work...?

Post by rpavich123 »

Hi,
I'm very new to video editing. Is there a place that I can see examples of other users work so I can see some possibilities by layman such as myself? That would probably be a BIG help!

thanks,
bob

Watch TV! Seriously, watch how they use cuts and fades, composites and layering, lower thirds, etc. Videomaker magazine* just had an article about the Rule of Thirds - how you should not center your subject when shooting, but have it in a third of the shot (picture a tic-tac-toe grid). And watching TV, sure enough, most is shot this way. And don't forget to listen to TV too. Commercials are especially great for all these examples. I actually find myself commenting on the production of the commercial rather than what they are trying to sell.

*A great magazine, IMHO.

This is a very interesting thread and contains information which is useful learning material for several Ulead products. I have therefore requested that it be moved into the Tutorials "General Information" Forum.

I am an average Joe (Jeff, actually) and I use TV, mostly commercials, for ideas and inspiration. I can't replicate everything I see, basically for lack of time and the limitations of the software, but it is sure fun trying :!: 8)

Help with technique

Post by DavidGreensmith »

There is a UK magazine called "Digital Video Techniques" which features articles on techniques for digital video - oddly enough :-)

I've bought the last few issues of this and it is very good. They have a cover CD on every issue with freebies like music and motion video loops, plus tutorials.

If you're not in the UK then you can subscribe - Google the name and you'll be taken to the page.

One of the nice things about the tutorials is that they use a sub-set of video editing products as examples and Video Studio 10 is included.
