Video editing tools

I don’t use all of these tools and I use different editing software. However, I thought this video was informative. I do like the selection of software he uses. I use many of these same tools and there are a few I might like to try.

I usually don’t watch videos with the over produced custom thumbnails that look to promotional. But This video is good.

I will watch bad videos so you don’t have to.
Since I have started this site, which was just a few days ago, I have watched a lot of bad videos.  Those are the videos that never make it onto the site. I am curating only quality content that readers will find informative and useful.

Matt Cutts on YouTube Video

Out first post is from the Big G itself. Here we have Matt Cutts talking with his video guy about what it takes to make a decent video for YouTube. This is a very basic run down on using video for a simple interview / talking head video that may be used in social media. This type of video is also suitable to be hosted on your own website as well.
The four main takeaways are

  1. Use a tripod to get steady shots
  2. Have good lighting – learn how to use natural lighting
  3. Record good audio – use a decent microphone.
  4. You can make good business videos using simple editing software
