In today’s world online and computer video is very much the way forward. Online entrepreneurs and internet marketers are using video to promote their services and products. Karaoke discos are using it to make more material for their shows, others are using it to create personal videos to share with their friends and family or to upload to social network sites, teachers are using it to create tutorials.
Modern computer technology has made it easier for anyone to create their own videos. What’s more the software applications required to make your own videos are available online absolutely free of charge.
Years ago video creation and editing was a task reserved for the professionals who would have expensive equipment and software to fulfil their own or clients needs. Thankfully nowadays anybody with a PC and online connection can do it absolutely free and easily due to advances in technology.
Modern day video editors and creators make it easy for anyone who wants to create videos to actually do so. Most are very user-friendly and non technical, an individual can soon get the gist of the controls and features after a little trial and error practice. There is now nothing to stop anybody with a PC making their own videos.
If you are fortunate enough to have access to a modern video camera then the process will be a breeze. If not then a web cam or one of the many modern mobile phones will do the job. You just need to record your video then upload it to your PC for editing.
You can make videos from your photograph collection or images on your hard-drive (including family pictures). Load these into a video editor and record your own soundtrack or add a soundtrack you created earlier; some video editors will allow you to add more than one soundtrack. You can then add text-based annotations, remarks and titles to complete your masterpiece.
By using one of the many free screen-capture video creators you can record tutorials. For example you could create a tutorial or instructional video about how to use a favoured piece of software by using a screen-capture video creator that will also record your instructional voice at the same time as recording your on-screen activity. Great for tutors, teachers and college lecturers or just to show a friend or family member how to use the great new software you’ve got.
Disco and karaoke businesses are using it to create new karaoke for their shows. They do this by combining the instrumental audio with the highlighted text of the lyrics.
Online authors are using it to enhance their readers experience by creating video versions of their blog posts, articles and ebooks, by reading their material out loud and recording the reading then adding the main points in the text of their material as a visual guide.
To summarise, the possibilities of using video in your ventures are endless. With a little imagination and practice you can come up with some of the most excellent material you have ever created.
So go ahead; get one of the free video creators or editors and start creating your own movie masterpiece. Impress your customers and potential customers, friends, neighbours, family, students or pupils with your movie making skills. They’ll think you’ve done training at college or something.
