If you want to create spectacular music videos that rival the best, then feature packed music video software is what you need. This software lets you transform your songs and beats into a finished video product with stunning effects. Here are some tips on using your home computer to create your own chart buster music video.
Get a PC with Video Editing Capability
Chances are, your own PC will do the job of video editing adequately, provided you load the right software. You get video editing software for both Macs and PCs. Advanced software may offer greater functionalities and great features but whether these will work on your PC is something you need to check with the dealer before you pay for the product. Even your 5-7 year old PC should be able to handle the video editing software of a basic/ beginner level.
Hard Disk Space
If you have limited hard disk space on your PC, then add some before you start using it to work on and store your music videos. Editing software needs substantial hard disk space. Having insufficient space can cause glitches and make the process very slow. If you have footage stored on your PC that you haven’t used in months, then consider transferring it to removable storage like CDs and freeing up the space on your machine’s hard disk.
CD/DVD Burning Software, Compression Software
Make sure you have the right software to convert your footage into the required output formats. If you want your videos on DVD or CD, then CD/ DVD writing software is required. If you would prefer to upload it on the web, then download high compression formats such as QuickTime.
Adding the Right Effects
It is important to make sure your software is versatile enough to add the necessary effects to keep your video from becoming simply a no frills recording of a vocal performance. The music video software may also offer audio effect capabilities. Software with effects such as reverberate, chorus, delay and distort can convert simple music into a foot tapping number. Use the range of instrument options available in the software to play around with various combos to create unique blends that accentuate your music.
Keep it Simple
Unless you have had years of experience with making music videos, it is best to keep your video simple. It is best to go with easy to create effects that turn out well in the final output rather than opt for spectacular effects that fail spectacularly!
Once your music is ready, it is very important to edit diligently. The editing process is when your music video is molded into its final shape. Look at the video with a critical eye adding various effects and visuals to the track. Make sure the video and the track move cohesively and blend seamlessly. A feature rich music video software will let you splice videos with music, soundtracks and effects to create an attention grabbing music video.
