Introduction to Online Video • Steps to getting your video online: • Media Acquisition • Video Editing • Exporting of your edited production • Publishing to Web Dean Zanello - NH Adobe User Group
Introduction to Online Video 1. Media Acquisition To begin, it is assumed you have some footage recorded on a MiniDV Camcorder. These cameras come in large ranges of prices, and in many different shapes and sizes. The first step in any video editing application is to import or capture your raw footage for editing purposes. We will now demonstrate this with Adobe Premiere Pro (or Premiere Elements). In order to transfer your video from a DV Camcorder, your computer will have to be Firewire equipped. Although Firewire does not come standard, it is becoming a more common option on both desktops and laptops. Dean Zanello - NH Adobe User Group
