I’m shooting a movie as a school project. Myself and my group are shooting it on a regular camcorder, so it’s on a small cassette tape. You then take the tape and transfer the stuff you want onto a VHS.
Anyway, I’m looking for a program so we can add things into it, like some small special effects and maybe credits. Any feedback/warez are appreciated.
For just putting it all together, just use a VCR with a record option, and playback from the camcorder with the RCA cables plugged into the input of the VCR. If you want special effects, I cant help you there.
A) The idea of the whole credits thing is optional but we’d rather do it, because it would look more professional than writing our names on a piece of cardboard, then flashing it in front of the camera.
B) Our school board is extremely stretched for money. I’m more surprised that we even have Microsoft Office, let alone Adobe Premier.
When I used to record videos with my camcorder and transfer them on my computer, I tried three different programs, which may be or may not be good : MGI Videowave (version 4, but it’s old), ADSTech Instant DVD (or just CapWiz) and Ulead VideoStudio 8 (though Ulead DVD MovieFactory would probably work too). I never used any of them to add “special effects” and such, so I can’t really say which is better and easier. I heard MGI actually sucked for this kind of stuff and that the other two were all right. I don’t know if that was the kind of “feedback/warez” you were looking for (because maybe you won’t be, like, able to get them easily :P), but I hope it helped.
