Edit photographs video


In recent years, laptops have become almost as powerful as desktops. You don't have to remain stationary when doing things such as editing photos or video. You can take your project with you. With the right combination of laptop and video editing program, you can produce professional looking videos anywhere.

Make sure your laptop is capable. Editing video is both a processor and memory heavy process. If you have a slow processor and only the minimum amount of RAM required, your video editing software may run slowly. Also, make sure you have enough hard drive memory to store your clips and renders. Choose video editing software. Most computers today will have a program installed with the operating system, such as iMovie or Windows Movie Maker, but these tend to be basic. If you want something more advanced, consider purchasing it. Consumer grade video software runs as little as $50, while professional options such as Avid Media Composer can cost thousands of dollars. Become familiar with your software. Certain video editing programs have a higher learning curve than others. If you've chosen a professional grade video editing program, such as Final Cut Pro or Avid Media Composer, learning the program may be difficult, so you take a tutorial or read a manual to get acquainted with the various functions of the program. Capture your video. Connect your connection cable or SD card to your laptop. Open your video software and look for an option that says "Capture." The labeling may be different, depending on your software. For example, in Final Cut Pro, the option is "Log and Transfer." Capturing your raw footage imports it to the video editing software so it can be edited. Edit. Once you have captured your video, your clips should appear in your clip library. From there, you should be able to drag them onto the timeline, trim them, slow them down, add effects and manipulate them any way you want.

How to connect a camcorder to a laptop to show live image.


If there is not already one built into your laptop, you will need to install a video capture card. There are at least two types that are available. The USB type allows you to use it via USB on most laptops. Some USB video capture adapters compress the video before bringing it into the computer. The second type is either PC Card or ExpressCard, depending on the expansion card available on your laptop. Some of the cards also include TV tuners. The USB type is probably the most flexible, as you can also use it on a desktop computer.

Note: The image you see on the computer will be slightly delayed from the output of the camcorder.

Hope this helps.

We have VCR tapes with videos on it we would like to convert them to DVD or CD- how should we do it


I hope that you have plenty of time on your hands. If you do, then you will need a video capture card or tv-tuner USB dongle. Most large computer stores carry a variety of choices. Hook the line-out of the VCR to the TV-tuner or video capture card and use the digital video recording software that came with it to record your video to your hard disk. From here you can edit it with a video editing program and burn the finished product to your DVD or you can burn the raw files to the DVD.

I need to make videos on my acer!!!??


Capturing video on Acer notebook with Crystal Eye software on Windows Vista UPDATED It seems like a lot of people are having trouble with figuring out how to capture video with their built-in webcam on their Acer laptop. There is not capture video function in the Crystal Eye software that is preinstalled with the computer. Windows movie maker 6.0 no longer have the capture video feature on Windows Vista. I’ve read a couple of ways to actually capture video, but only one way worked for me so I will post that method.
For some reason, Acer hid the capture video function and it is buried deep in the Windows directory.
Go to your root directory (C:\ drive in most case), then open up the Windows folder, scroll down to the folder “SUYIN NB Cam”, open that up and you should see the file “Live Cam”. This program can do video capture. Make a shortcut to your desktop for easy access. Open it up and play with it a little and you should be able to capture video with it.

UPDATE: Some commented on the audio not working. If you have your sound driver installed correctly, try the following: Go “Devices” and select the microphone. For me, it says “Microphone (Realtek High Definition)” and this should give you audio. If this is checked, then that means your microphone is in use and you should be able to record sound.

Vcr to dvd


Hi you could install a Video Grabber or an Internal TV Tuner card into your computer if its Desktop computer or an expensive USB TV TUNER if its for laptop . Plug in the composite video out from your VCR to the Composite Video in to the computer .Use nero or any other software to build a movie in fact the bundled application software of your TV TUNER or VIDEO Grabber card would be better .
