The default video files made by most Canon DSLRs is an H264 video file in an MOV container. Decoding high definition video at the data rates that most Canon cameras use is intensive for both memory, disk and CPU unless you have a dedicated decoder chip. Your iPod Touch uses flash storage (which is fast) and has H264 decoding capability to make it run ...

Start here: 10 free video editors Keep in mind that free video editors are very simple and do not have many effects. I recommend you to buy inexpensive video editing software, like Sony Movie Studio or Cyberlink PowerDirector. Take a look at this list of consumer video editors

Personally I use Camtasia Studio and SnagIt. TechSmith, the vendor, has created their own codec for their software which IMO works excellent. You will probably find Camtasia a bit stiff when it comes to the price compared to your budget, but I mentioned SnagIt for this reason although it's primarily to capture screenshots it do have built-in video recording ...

While there are video encoders that do this kind of thing, most commonly this is the work of a video switcher or mixer. A video switcher is a device used for mixing live video from multiple sources. The bad news is they generally aren't cheap. An HD capable switcher is typically in the $6000+ range with the absolute cheapest one I know of being the Black ...

You are looking for a Non-Linear Video Editing packages or NLE. Premiere and Final Cut Pro are two of the most popular, but they are also relatively pricy professional products. There are also many cheaper and/or free options available such as Windows Movie Maker (Windows) or iMovie (Mac). If you search for non-linear editing software or video editing ...

After Effects or just about any titling software should allow this easily. You just need to make a layer with all the text on it (or even an image) then you simply need to apply a motion effect to scroll from the top to bottom, put a keyframe in the middle and then the keyframe at the end should bring it back. This should produce exactly what you are ...

If I were you, here is my solution. I separate your video with animated with 3 parts: intro video with walking and roaring tiger, fading logo and logo with slogan. As per your mentioned that you may be a green hand for video editing software, therefore Premiere or After Effects may be too complicate for you. You can try some simple video editing software ...

While ffmpeg has editing capabilities it is not specifically designed for editing, and it does not work like an NLE; it takes input(s) and produces output(s), instead of doing non-destructive edits on multiple source files. Melt however, based on the mlt framework which powers kdenlive, is designed as a "powerful, if somewhat obscure, multitrack ...

To make your vector artwork into a playable movie file, it will have to be rendered, and another term for rendering is rasterizing. For example, in printing, a single image is rasterized when a vector image of a page is converted to the tiny dots the printer produces on the page. Digital movies exist in pixel-based raster formats, so each frame of the ...

It sounds like you are looking to do what is traditionally handled by a Non-Linear Video Editing software, or just video editor for short. There are a number of free and cheap options available. They lack many of the bells and whistles of more advanced software, but are actually typically easier to use than the more advanced software targeted at ...

There are many good free open source video editing software available. A couple of them are: Pinnacle Videospin, downloadpage: http://videospin.en.softonic.com/ ZS4 Video Edit, official website: http://www.zs4.org/ LiVES, official website: http://lives.sourceforge.net/ Kdenlive, official website: http://www.kdenlive.org/ Avidemux, official website: ...

If you have a Mac, Presentation Prompter had a few good reviews I found when doing some research. I don't have a Mac to try it, but it appears to have mirror modes and is listed as having RTF support. It is also worth pointing out you may be able to setup the necessary mirroring on a particular output desktop rather than having the prompting software have ...

Can't help with freeware, but i can shed some light on the professional side of things. At urgent.fm we use Zenon because most commercial stations in Belgium use it, and our station is one of the starting places for people interested into getting into radio work professionally in our region. That way someone who was trained at our station feels right at ...

If you're looking for super simple and free. The Windows 8 Camera App will allow you to record video files which it then saves to the Pictures->Camera Roll folder. It's no frills but will do the trick in a pinch. When you open the Camera App there are two buttons one that looks like a video camera and one a still camera. You click the video camera button ...

Synfig Studio is a free option. It's a free 2d vector animation package, similar to Flash. I haven't used it, so I can't vouch for how easy it is to learn. Since Blender can pretty much do anything - provided you can work out how to use it - you could probably do this in Blender. Though it's not really purpose-built for 2d animation or motion graphics. For ...

The animation that you refer to was probably made with Adobe After Effects. You can animate this kind of thing for 'free', if you don't value your time, using PhotoShop CS2 (free from Adobe) and the Quicktime player which will import image sequences and save them as movies. But your hope for free software misses the point that the costly parts of animation ...

If you're on a Mac, iMovie is free. I've been using it for years to do all my video editing (300+ YouTube videos and counting!). It's got still frames, color correction, titles, voice-over, transitions, etc. YouTube also has (or used to have) a built-in editor. I believe you upload your footage and then YouTube allows you to edit it there. That means ...

The big trick is just finding the right source clip that will fit with the logo, though it also depends on how closely you want it to match up. Simply layering the logo over top of a video clip and fading it in is trivial with any editing or compositing software package (such as Premiere or After Effects). To get a little more advanced you can actually ...

What you need is called a non-linear video editor or NLE. Basically you can load in the files and then you put them on a "timeline". Each audio track and video track goes on a horizontal track. You move the clips right to left on the timeline to synchronize them and once you have them synchronized, you can cut out portions of the top most clip that you ...

1) Each software has its own advantages and disadvantages, there isn't a right answer. If you have ShadowPlay support, the hardware leverage is nice. FRAPS is good at dumping a really high quality video quickly, but it needs lots of memory and high speed disks to deal with the amount of data it dumps. I've not personally worked with DxTory, so I can't ...

Just about any audio editing software should be able to do this for you. You simply need a "stretch" or "speed" adjustment. If you don't know of any software, Audacity is a popular free option. It's probably overkill for your needs, but should allow you to stretch the audio out to slow it down.

Premiere is your best option unless you plan on spending a boatload (thousands and thousands) on an Avid system. I'd suggest working on smaller sets of cameras at a time and then working off the combined feeds. You can use multicamera editing mode with several cameras at a time, make the best choices out of those and then run each of those sequences in to ...

This is called a "write on" effect and is typically accomplished with either a 2d animation package such as Adobe Flash or with a motion graphics software package such as Adobe After Effects or Apple Motion. It generally involves building the imagery as vector graphics. Any lines that will be animated are generally drawn as paths that can be "written on" ...

Is there a tool that will do it, probably... is there a tool that will do it well and make it anything worth watching? No. Making a quality slideshow set to music requires manual timing and ordering and a fair bit of effort on the editor's part. It isn't something you can simply automate away. If you don't put in the effort to make something good, it ...

That is motion graphics. A program like Adobe After Effects in combination with Photoshop or Illustrator is ideal for producing such a video. Something like Flash could also be used. Note that it is very complicated to make something that good on your own. There are however templates available for After Effects that you may be able to use. Alternately, ...

Adobe premiere has a speech analysis system built in, after cs4 I believe. Machine transcription systems tend to be very poor though - in my experience it is only useful for a vague sense of where you are in the video. See below: http://www.realeyes.com/blog/2010/03/05/caption/ Human transcription services are getting cheaper as many of them use Amazon's ...

If you're on Linux, consider Cinelerra: the most powerful video editor for Linux, Openshot: simple, powerful, and free video editor for Linux, or Kdenlive (also available for FreeBSD and Mac OSX): Free and open source video editor for GUN/Linux and FreeBSD Openshot and Kdenlive can be installed via apt-get install, however Cinelerra requires a little more ...

While the other answers here cover the feature comparison better, I feel they aren't representing the cost difference adequately. Motion has a one time cost of $50. In order to get After Effects from Adobe, you need to sign up for Creative Cloud, which is basically a software leasing scheme being represented as though it were a service (which it most ...
