    video Editing Software Comparisons

    I read through what everyone else has been using, and if there is any consensus it appears Avid may be it. I will look at that. Until then, I could still benefit from knowing whether or not some of you use one editor for some tasks, and transport the file to another for other tasks. Is that...

    compositing Trailer Masterclass via Son of Sardaar

    Just reading this. From now on, I will realize I should not take you as seriously as I once did. I didn't need to watch the videos. I was laughing hysterically--tears running down my face at your descriptions of slaptick. When I need a good laugh, I think of my favorite slapstick scenes or...

    crew Why is it so difficult to find collaborators for a project?

    For the first time, I understood you. I was also laughing. All I did was give you an idea how I think and you spoke my language.

    video Editing Software Comparisons

    I am leaning toward attempting my first music video myself. That way, I will have some leverage for hiring a professional in the future. It will be obvious that I need assistance. I have dabbled with a few video editors over the last several years to create my album files for streaming but have...

    crew Why is it so difficult to find collaborators for a project?

    Nate, I think what I said meant that, 1) because your knowledge and vocabulary are at a much higher level than are mine, I have trouble understanding your writing, 2) since I am a music creator who prefers to read non-fiction, I never understood why my interpretations of a given fiction novel...

    crew Why is it so difficult to find collaborators for a project?

    Reading Nate North makes me feel exactly like I did in my Honors English classes during high school. Somehow As in grammar and diagramming sentences caused my teachers and school counselor to believe I had any clue how to follow novels. I kept coming up with my own interpretations that had...

    music Audio/Video Files

    Currently, I try to avoid Microsoft and Google whenever possible, because they are now such large companies. How can you do everything well when you have so many products and departments and employees and features and staff turnover and . . . Office 365 Teams can be a mess at times. Too much is...

    Ok. I'll look at that. I have used mailbigfile in the past. By now there are probably so many options.

    AcousticAI, thank you. FTP is a new term for me, so I will look at that and post additional questions.

    music Audio/Video Files

    sfoster, is everyone requesting that the files be sent digitally or is anyone requesting SD cards, flash drives or even CDs? Just to give everyone an idea why I always seem so confused, I began recording on cassette tapes.

    music Audio/Video Files

    Let's say I respond to a call for music, send a song link via my website, and my work is chosen for an independent film. Will the music team tell me in what form they want the file or is there a current standard for deliverables? Thank you.

    crew Why is it so difficult to find collaborators for a project?

    Thank you. The family situation has recently changed. I have often thought about arranging virtual meetings at some point. I understand the differences between art and money types. There is more here I am still digesting and will add questions soon. I may also start a new thread that has to do...

    You see my point? You were born into connections. I keep adding to each post. Most of us have to work very hard at finding any connection.

    crew Why is it so difficult to find collaborators for a project?

    MarQii, I must assume you either have friends or relatives in the music business, grew up near a major music center or went to music school? The reason I ask this is that most musicians--especially those who grew up in the middle of nowhere have no clue there are ways to make money making music...

    crew Why is it so difficult to find collaborators for a project?

    Yeah, it sounds like modern film/video production--or at least that which involves animation is way more complex than is modern music production. I would guess the animation itself is the most time consuming. I suppose there are now visual templates that make the process easier. I'm from the...

    Seeking Music Video Cinematographer/Editor

    Just doing some ground work at this point . . . I am interested in viewing/reviewing the work of filmmakers who have shot and edited several--at least five music videos I could find online somewhere--preferably your own website since I am not a social media type. If I can view your work...

    crew Why is it so difficult to find collaborators for a project?

    Hi, Nate. I left performing 25 years ago, because I wanted to hone my songwriting and recording skills. I am witness to that transformation in affordability of recording equipment and software. This is the very reason I was able to afford to do what I do. One of my points was that not all...
