So everyone here seems to be able to post a video of themselves playing.
I can do that too, but only with my telephone and I don’t like the audio of my telephone or lack of control I have over the audio.
So, I think I need some kinda movie maker program.
Something that I can put together with the audio recording I’ve made in my waveform12 audio program.
@mathsjunky suggested I should get imoive. But it seems that is for mac. I got windows.
Does anyone have any suggestion as to what is a good video program to get? Preferably a free download.
As of right now, all I can do is audio only to share here. I want to do video too.
I assume that I’m on the right track that I will need to mix audio and video to come up with some kinda quality video to share here.
I like what everyone shares here. I don’t like the quality of the video I shared.
If I’m on the wrong track. Please enlighten me.
Other than that, what do you use to generate video?
I assume I’ll be mixing the video (movie) with my waveform12 audio. Which I think is my goal.
You can buy a webcam that plugs into usb. That will clip on top of your monitor and might be a workable solution for you. But, yes, I feel your pain. It is really hard these days to find a nice simple solution in computing. Everyone seems to think that giving you 10,000 options is a great idea, then in the update they make it 11,000.
Haven’t found a real step-by-step tutorial for how I do it.
So I made a little video just now for what I found the easiest way (after having struggled with it too):
Hope my ramblings are understandable it still went on for almost 8 minutes, but it’s not that much information.
Tried to do it as step by step as possible, with not too much fluff, but I’m not experienced in doing tutorials so I hope it still helps.
OBS may be an option worth exploring. It is an open-source video recording app for the PC. I assume you record guitar and vocals through an AI (Audio Interface) into waveform12. With OBS you’d be able to source the audio from the AI and using an add-on to OBS continue to use your phone as the camera (explained here).
I like this approach as once the sound setup is done, then there is no need to do any post recording editing. Many people keep the video as it was recorded ie from the moment of pressing record to hitting stop. The next step is to trim the video to make the video start and finish with the performance. You can then add some text up front, usually a song title to start and a thank you to finish. I expect that would be quite easily done in Resolve without needing too much study of the manual or tutorials.
I may consider one of them cams. Just for having it at about the proper height. My telephone seems to fall over and is hard to stabilize on the table.
And yep, everyone seems to think more is better. When many times, less, can be more.
For sure, I do use them videos and they are helpful. I will surely be seeking them out. But I still just wanna play my guitar.
Oh my! My goodness even. Thank You So much Marcel!
You really went the extra mile for explanation on this. I checked your video out just before I went to bed last night. Very good explanations. I will likely watch a few more times and see if I can start making some moves within the program.
You covered exactly what I needed. I just can’t thank you enough. You’ll be saving me hours of frustration I’m sure.
What ya covered there is just what I want to do.
I can’t thank you enough for taking ‘your’ time to make that excellent, educational video.
Now, we’ll see if I can follow instructions. If I can, I should get me a good sounding video. Short of my playing of course.
Thank You David.
Yep, that’s exactly how I do my recording. AI to daw.
I had seen the OBS mentioned here before and wondered what was being talked about. Now I know.
I’ll be looking into this too. Thanks for the link.
