Any “Videographers” Out There?

Help! We have been limping along using Teamviewer to capture screenshots from our Sonic and using Microsoft Movie Maker to hack things together. Overall it does work but we are looking to take things to the next level in both screen capture and video editing abilities.

Anyone out there have any suggestions of software they use or recommend?

    Hi Curt

    This should help

    NOTE: While 720p will be fine for the Wersi screen (It only has 768 resolution) don.t go below 1080p (HD) for other videos, as many watch them on their new cheap 4K TVs which usually have poor upscaling (Compared to more expensive sets) so just get a fuzzy picture. (A good upscaling TV can make even SD looks decent, (Nothing like 4K though) whereas the cheaper ones can be almost unwatchable)

    I’ve been using Nero Platinum 2017 to edit my videos. Reasonably priced and you can download a 15 day trial.

      Thanks Geoff – I’ll take a look.

    I should add that most if these packages are difficult to use on a small screen, whether it be the 11″ Dell tablet (with keyboard of course) or a 17″ Dell XPS laptop, however I dock my Venue in the Dell dock and have a 27″ touchscreen monitor attached, and everything then makes sense.

    So advice here is big monitor required in order to get all the video and audio tracks on screen, as well as all the various controls etc. On a small screen you have to scroll up and down, as not everything is visible and controls keep having to be swapped.

      Thanks Mark – No issue with that. All the video work will be done on a 27 inch screen. Not familiar with the product that you mentioned. I’ll take a look and also run a few Google queries today to see what else is out there.

    Hi Curt,
    I am using Sony Vegas Ultimate HD v14 to take the video from my Kodak Playsport camera and stitch it together with the sound .wav file from the Sonic. Very easy to use, and extremely powerful. I am probably using about 2% of its capability.

    As for time, for a c. 4 minute video I am processing c. 500mb of raw 720p video file and c. 70mb of raw .wav file, which takes about 16 minutes to make the resultant .mp4 that I upload to YouTube. Processor is an i5, 8Gb, 256GB SSD Dell Venue 11 tablet running Win 10 Pro 64bit.

    I used to use Pinnacle Studio, but I find Sony Vegas much better. My version is quite back level and had to do a bit of work to get it to work under Win 10, but primarily around graphics support.

    If I do more of this, then I may invest in an upgrade, but given current use, can’t see the point, and whilst it is rendering I just have a beer!

    If you need any more info or any questions, just ask.
