I have been a ‘consumer’ of scale model related videos on YouTube for some years now. Some are great and some need work but all required some effort to get finished and published to the masses. I have been thinking about doing some how-to videos for a while. It only took a global pandemic and some time at home to get it kick started.
Recently, I have been studying what makes some videos work better than others, at least for what interests me. I’ve concluded that the footage is just one aspect of a good video. More important is the video editing. That is what brings it all together.
My lovely wife bought me VideoStudio to get me started and I am glad she did. It may not have all of the bells and whistles of the more expensive software packages but there are hundreds of tutorials and how-tos and for starting out, it really can’t be much easier to put something together.
If you have read my Cockpit Tips and Tricks post, a lot in this video will seem familiar:
This is definitely a first video. I learned a lot when I was making it and I have a couple ideas for improvement in the next one. Let me know what you think!
