I know not many people does these but maybe this could be of some help in the future. So first things first making these can be a hassle and REALLY overwhelming if you are not prepared. First up is audio quality, if you are a college student with little to no money (like me) there are things you can do so that your audio is still decent enough to not be a problem. This is a simple guitar hero microphone. They cost five dollars and the quality is not going to be TOP level stuff but honestly, people really did not seem to notice. In fact a lot of people were shocked to find out about how okay the microphone really sounded. I now use a Blue Snowball Microphone but for the first six months of my channel this bad boy was my go to. I also use audacity to do my recordings. Probably the best FREE tool around. So if you are running really low on funds I would suggest this as your first microphone and to use audacity. Next up is your script. This can go either way if you are trying to be informational and or funny. I have my scripts sectioned off into parts on my review. Each line is when I stop recording and make that one part. So as this is for my PS1 video. Each line represents one part. Hope that makes sense. So now you need to record gameplay. I use Action! to get recordings of older games. It's a lot easier than plugging in my Dazzle and recording it off my system. I got my version for 20 bucks and it's REALLY REALLY nice for low end computers. I have an old laptop that can barely handle anything but I can record 720p with this with no slowdown. Obviously if you have a higher end computer just using OBS will get the job done. but I can't even use it since my laptop is not compatible. So I mean, this would be your best option if you have a bad set up. NOW you have all of this done. Time to make the video right? Well, yeah! but the biggest issue is what program to use? you could find a free editing program online but it will never top the ones that cost the big bucks. I hashed out a bit for my program but it was at a time where money was not an issue and I had previous work editing things for people. So it seemed like an okay choice. Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 can run you well around 500 dollars. It's a lot but i've already made that back and then some with some of the jobs i've done thanks to the program. NOTE: THERE ARE FREE TRIALS OF IT SO YOU CAN GIVE IT A SHOT. 500 DOLLARS IS A LOT OF MONEY If you're JUST starting out on editing try Wondershare. then just build up from there. I wish there was a decent program that was cheap but there really is not any. Sony Vegas is a bit cheaper so that might be a good alternative. I have no experience with the program so I can't really say much on it though. ANYWAYS NOW TO EDITING I'm not going to give a full step by step on how to edit videos, but I will tell you some things to be prepared for. 1. YOU WILL NEVER BE 100% READY NO MATTER WHAT. You will have the music you want, the images, the footage, and the audio ready to go but you will always miss something. When this happens I usually get flustered since it makes me stop editing and try and find what I need. Don't get mad, it will effect your work. Trust me. I had 87 items in one review which includes (Images, Music, Vocals, etc) and I could count four times where I had to go back to re-record footage and or find something online. 2. THESE TAKE QUITE A BIT OF TIME Non-Stop editing no breaks I can bump a review out in about a day. but usually it takes me three days. SO THESE SUCKERS CAN SUCK THE LIFE OUT OF YOU. But it's always fun to see your product come to life. AND FINALLY 3. Never be afraid to tinker with how you edit things. You will always learn new tricks but if you stick to what you normally do you will never grow. If your edits are always the same then people won't stick around. BUT maybe there are edits you do that define your channel. Tinker with those as well. Polish them. Don't make them rugged or stale next video. VISUAL EDITS WILL ALWAYS BE UP THERE WITH AUDIO QUALITY AND SCRIPTING WHEN IT COMES TO MAKING A REVIEW OBVIOUSLY That is where most of the time will be put into. but yeah. IF you have any questions about what to do or how to do things I can help as much as I can. I will edit this further if I see fit, but for now I hope this was helpful in any way.
