Brief History of Video Editing
  • Linear Editing - Video Post Production prior to Computers
    • Physically cutting tape/film, reassemble into final product
  • Non-Linear Editing (NLE) – Computer software based film, video editing
    • Footage & Assets captured/imported into computer

    • Other common sizes: 320 x 240 ; 240 x 180
    • Can be anything, will vary depending on final delivery
  • Frame Rate
    • Number of frames per second that gives the illusion of motion from multiple still images
encoding for web
Encoding for Web
  • Main Objective
    • Make video file size as small as possible while maintaining reasonable image quality in order to facilitate internet delivery
  • Methods for achieving smaller file size:
    • Reduce Frame Size
    • Reduce Frame Rate
      • Key Frames
  • Streaming vs. Progressive Download

  • Make sure all your assets are in your “ex4” folder on your computer
  • Recommended:
    • Create a folder for images and one for audio INSIDE your exercise 4 folder
  • If you don’t have an MP3 for audio, I posted a couple here.
  • If you don’t have any images to use, here are a some you can use for today’s class, but NOT for EX4.
premiere what you need to know
Premiere – What you need to know
  • Premiere does not work well in the Lab, these computers cannot handle the processor intensive work that full function NLE programs require
  • We are going to use Windows Movie Maker, although limited in functionality, it is good introduction
  • If you are working on a mac, “iMovie” is very similar to Windows Movie Maker
  • BUT, if you want to download and explore Premiere at home, here is the link: http://www.adobe.com/products/tryadobe/main.jsp#product=98
  • Last semester’s Lecture 9 has Premiere instructions
before we start
Before We Start

  • This is where you will save everything associated with this video project
