Good tutorial! Bad sound! Awful background music! Sorry Nathan but you should take some pointers off of "Epic Tutorials For iOS and Android"
The sound on this video is.. uh... how should I say this? LESS than optimal would describe it, I guess. The narration is soft, soft, soft– and the music soundtrack serves only to further mask the narration. MUSIC is used to set MOOD. It has no place or use in a tutorial! What does it do? Makes us feel blue, lonely, friendly, excited? None of that is appropriate in a tutorial! Give your viewers a break and ditch the music, then work on creating a PRISTINE soundtrack. You would do everyone a BIG favor by doing that. You might even increase your views! It's a valuable tutorial, lots of good information, it's just difficult to figure it all out!
Good video but the audio sounds kind of soft, and the dialog tends to be masked somewhat by the background music. Tutorials don't need musical backgrounds. Music is use to set a mood in dramatic productions. A tutorial is not a dramatic production, it's a learning device. Right at the very end, the audio comes up to an acceptable level, but that level should have been used through the entire production.
Hi Nathan, thank you for this review! Have you encountered external audio synch issues while recording video with FilMic Pro? I'm using the Olympus LS-100 and recorded audio at 48khz/16bit(video was 16:9 extreme 60fps using Moondog anamorphic lens video only setting). When I loaded the video and audio on to iMovie the audio was constantly coming out of synch. I would adjust and a few minutes later it was off again. Any suggestions? Thank you
I’ve not had any issues... but is your audio track a separate item from the video in iMovie? I’m guessing the answer is yes. When editing separate audio tracks from video, iMovie moves the audio track around inexplicably and that may be the issue. A fix is to export the synced audio and video and then edit the combined footage. Extra step, but works.
Great video Nathan!
Every tutorial I've seen says to lock focus and lock AE before shooting.
I understand this can be useful for stationary subjects or panning across where there stark contrast between foreground and background.
But what about filming moving subject or walking video ? Would locking AE/AF still be used here ? Can't imagine you would have accurate focus or exposuren if the scene is moving ?
+li21 you're correct. I only lock AE/AF when the camera is locked down, in hand or in a tripod. I tend to lock AE more than focus though. Every person or major object that enters the frame will change exposure and focus so it'd be really tough to keep a high quality shot with the movement.
Ahsan Saeed hard press the exposure to lock it in. The ISO/shutter wheel should pop up on the left. Tapping ISO or shutter will lock it or you can make them reciprocal. Some extreme low and bright light scenarios you won't be Be able to find an ideal combo. That's when you need an ND filter, especially in bright lighting. That way, you can keep a low shutter speed and a better ISO setting.
How to become bitcoin trader? Exactly like Bitcoin, multiple digital currencies exist in the marketplace. So if you prefer to buy a few other currencies which aren`t available on Indian Exchange than you can utilize Bittrex. All you have to do is locate an exchange that you favor. Cryptocurrency exchanges have a massive potential to modify peoples minds and opinions concerning cryptocurrencies generally speaking and their application in actual life. So even in the event the exchange is attacked, its still true that you have your money. Furthermore, the exchanges prepare each and every industry for Bitcoin expansion. Existing stock exchanges will also compete to be able to fulfill the users configuration requirements. Sooner or later later on, the prices will grow more equal, meeting somewhere in the middleyour profit is equivalent to the quantity of convergence. No matter how far it is from Kijun, it is likely to return and test that level at some point. The amount of bitcoin is perpetually changing. In the US, it is 1000 USD. Whats even better, seek the services of a seasoned lawyer or at least ask for an in depth consultation. So youve read the newspaper about the meteoric growth of crypto currencies including Bitcoin or Ripple. Then coming up with 1000s of exchange rates simply to go out and get groceries is nearly impossible. Many cities around the world provide a bitcoin ATM where you are able to trade cash for bitcoin. The cryptocurrency world isn`t efficient.
