Creating Videos

Tuesday, November 06, 2018

At 7 pm, I checked out a Canon Workshop about making a video. Editor/Producer/Director Bryan Tanori talked about doing videos on three different programs, Final Cut 10, Premier, and Resolve. I don’t have these programs. I just mostly do videos on YouTube, although I have been on other internet video sites. On these programs, you can do your own films, commercials, short films, and marketing promos.

Some tasks in creating videos involve slide editing, captions, coloring, visual effects, storyboarding, graphics, and drone. A video producer usually has about six hours to shoot.

Logging all your footage will help with the editing process. Then, you go work on Finder window. In the Workflow, you are likely to deal with logic/protocols, library, share/exports, audio, motion, design, stills, production, post production, transfers, turnovers, cameras, and proxies. You are likely to add graphics and music in the editing window. Create an Adjustment Layer.

Editing Tools include Track-based editing, Trim Editing, Roll Editing, Slip Editing, and Slide Editing.

In Final Cut 10, the cogs symbol is the smart connection for building edits. You mostly work from the browser. There are some annoying bugs in this program, such as it frequently refers back to the start and duration. The most important and useful tool is the Select Tool, which is like a Trim Tool. Other tools are Trim Tool, Roll Trim, and Ripple Trim.

The accent grave/tilde key disconnects slides.

Look Grade works with coloring.

All three programs have an Inspector feature.

Basically, Final Cut 10 is the easiest to learn and work with, Premier is the hardest and most complicated, and Resolve is similar to Photoshop.

In Resolve, you do your coloring in the editing window. There is also a Media Viewer, Edit Window, and Fusion which has 3D Modeling. The Color Window is similar to Photoshop. The Media Delivery Page is UHD. Important tools in this program includes Track-Based Editing, Ripple Trim Tool, and Workflow. When coloring, you use parallel nodes and serial nodes. Parallel nodes are independent from serial nodes. But the Serial nodes are linear. Rec 709 is the standard. Also, check the primary colors, temperature, secondary colors, highlights, and shadows. The color mask includes Qualifier, Qualify Window, Matte Finesse, Luts, and Power Window. The Matte Finesse has more range of colors. The Luts is the Look Up Table. The Power Window is used to create a mask.

The other programs have Input Lut and Lumetri color in the editing window.
