S: Media Evaluation Question 6
BC: The End
FC: By Emily Baker | Media Evaluation- What have you learnt about technologies from the process of constructing this product?
1: Whilst we were creating our film opening, we have many new skills involving the technology we used to create our work.
2: We used a 720p HD Camera for our Film. I learnt how to record footage and capture onto the Macs. I used a slightly different one for a previous course that used DV Tapes instead. It was much easier with the HD Camera as we could select what clips we wanted, rather then record the whole footage onto the hard-drive.
3: We took the cameras to Kilve for filming and were able to take pictures using the HD camera as well as the Photographic Camera
4: On YouTube, I was able to upload and edit the channel to go with our blog and show it was ours. I altered the video format to MPEG-4 so YouTube would process it quicker then uploading as a .mov file.
6: The Mac and applications I used
7: I used the Mac computers to edit and upload my video. I learnt about a new application called LiveType, where we could upload Text Videos of our Titles, as Final Cut Express had very little variations. We could use different fonts, entrances/exits and place the titles anywhere on the screen.
8: I used Final Cut Express as it has more features and additions than Final Cut Pro. One new skill I learnt was that I could edit sound levels and insert sound on it's own.
9: I was also able to insert Title Files from LiveType on a separate Video Channel (V3). And also move video clips with moving the sound and deleting sound without removing the video.
10: Tumblr was a new thing for me. I learnt many things including how to upload YouTube Videos, create blog posts, edit the appearance of my blog and post external links and encoding.
