Well, I got the first video done! It’s live on YouTube!
It was much harder than I thought it would be. I thought I could just “wing it” with the intro but after about 15 takes I ended up writing a script and even making a cue card of sorts. It’s going to take some time to get used to being in front of the camera, but I think I’ll get there (probably with every pound I lose I’ll get more and more comfortable!).
I needed video editing software that wasn’t too expensive so I searched Google and found AVS4You.com. It’s only $29.95 for 1 year or $59.95 for unlimited lifetime. I chose the lifetime since I plan on doing this for a while. The software is very comprehensive for the small amount you pay. I was able to do lay-overs, text, and transitions, and you can add audio overlay too. I imagine if I want to get “really” in to video editing I would need more but this will do me for now. Oh, and with the unlimited subscription you can download all their software. In addition to the video editing software, yesterday I used their video file format changer. It worked great to change my MP4 to a WMV. If you need a good, but inexpensive video editing program that’s easy to use, give it a try. Below is the link, I signed up for the affiliate program but don’t have the link yet – when I get it – I will change the link to be my affiliate link.
Anyway, here’s my debut…
I’m going to try to get the next video done tomorrow, maybe edited too. I’ll post if I do. I tried today but I’m using a Flip Video and it ran out of juice. It takes 3 hours to charge and I ran out of light. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.
In the next video I’m going to cover how to cut out the fabric. My fabric has a design that needs to match at the seams so I’m going to cover that as well.
Please let me know what you think…I can take it. Critiques make my products better. Oh, and I know this one is a bit boring, I’m sure I’ll get better with time (and weight loss!).
Looking forward to hearing from you – until later ~
