DIGI video editing

By Laurin Bellemundo

Co-published by: Dummy Surveillance Cameras. Digital video cameras out numbered the conventional video cameras a long time ago. From mobile phone to digital video cameras, regardless of where you look at, almost everyone is using a digital device for making the event, an occasion, or the incident captured digitally and preserved. Everyone s a cameraman these days and there are enough and more software available online to make sure that the digital video editing you need can be done from the comforts of your own home. And why not? After all there are many digital video editing manuals available online and at bookstores or any other place that has computer books for sale, and with a little time and lots of patience anyone can learn how to use digital video editing, and use it at home!

First of all, what is digital video editing? It is simply the process you follow to capture and edit the video footage for producing a meaningful video. And with just a computer at home, digital video editing can be done such that special effects are added to the video, parts are cut out, and new parts even added, so that the video turns out exactly like you wanted.

There are many things you need besides a computer so that your digital video editing works smoothly. For one you need lots of storage space, either external or internal, on your computer. The storage requirement is there for the video you edit and for storing the final products. Next, the video editing software plays an important role. Depending on the features available in the video editing software, you may have more or less control over the final outcome.. Last but not least, you will need a video capture card. This card is what helps you digitize all that raw footage, and also help you give video outputs. These video capture cards compress the raw footage recorded from a VCR or a digital video camera onto the hard drive.

Even though digital video editing may seem like a daunting task at the beginning, do not lose hope. After all Rome was not built in a day, and knowing how to use digital video editing equipment is definitely much easier than building Rome now isn t it?
