Learning to make a video and upload to youtube

Hi Folks ~ Well, here we are in the middle of October already. Time is zipping right along.

I want to say a huge thank you for all of the kind, encouraging comments on my last post, and thanks for sharing your own stories as well. 

 Things are moving along here at Plum Cottage. Step by step, day by day, things are getting done. A LOT has really been accomplished this year and I am thankful.

I'm going to share a little video I took yesterday, just to see 'if' I could do it on my phone, and then upload it to youtube, which took a bit of googling, but I finally did it. What I need to know is, what are some great video editing programs that are 'free'?

In the video there are birds singing and traffic noise from the 5 lane road out front. I look forward to learning and improving. It is exciting to be learning and getting into something new.


 

Have a GREAT weekend and count your blessings. ~ FlowerLady

Oh no, Lorraine, I tried to watch the video and it wasn't there or on youtube
for me to see. I know, where is time flying off to? For you, it has been
hard work in the secret garden behind new fence. For me mostly trying to
go out and ride my bike, then take care of the home and Precious. We have unseasonably warm weather and too dry. If it rains tonight the high tomorrow will only be 60, more normal but unwanted by me.

Your video is good. I have my own preferences and most always like to hold my phone in the horizontal direction . You may want to try that. Keep on practicing and have fun doing it.

You did it! All the road noise is dulled by the trees and foliage you have. Like Ruth, I prefer a landscape view over a portrait view. That's because I can see more. Have fun with your video editing. I was once interested in that, but now I feel it is just too much for me. I doubt that it's too much for you. Wish I knew of such a program. .

WOW. You must have a very fancy phone, because it seems to have that steadying feature! Excellent! It is easy to overdub a video with music, words, or just silence. I can't remember the name of the program I used but it was free, although I had to make an account to use it. It was an online video editor. I will try to remember the name.

Good for you!! I loved being able to hear the birds, who I'm sure love your "jungle." <3

I enjoyed the 'live' view and the sweet little birdie chirping in the background! So fun to learn new things and share them with us. I have no clue about the editing - if you find out, please share! Hugs xo K

Ann said...

Yeah, you got the video uploaded to youtube. It was a nice little stroll through your garden. I never bother doing any editing when I do the videos so I don't know what programs would be good. You could do a google search for free video editing apps

I watched this morning, and even though I understand how much work your
yard and flowers are, I love the tropical look year round. Here the leaves
are falling too fast off some trees and the rest are looking a bit colorful. I'm not ready for what comes next. I must start thinking on removing my annuals before a frost in 10 days or so. Otherwise, they get so messy once frozen and thawed. Yuck. Thank you for sharing your gardens. Lynn and Precious

It all keeps the noddle working well Lorraine, learning something new all the time.
Now one of you making something, that would be nice.

You did a great job! Your video wasn't to fast, like some, and the beauty around you is so peaceful. We can pretend the traffic noise is just wind blowing :-)

I posted that on You Tube as well so you could get a comment notification.

This is so exciting. I've never done anything like this and I am excited to learn as you go.

Hugs to you,
Dee

It is a great video. I too love The Chosen. We watch it over many times. Take care and enjoy you gardens.

Great job on the video Lorraine. Especially for your first try! I like seeing your garden in real time and look forward to more videos. (hint, hint). Enjoy the weekend! xx

I'm totally impressed that you could figure out how to get a video onto you-tube! Well done.

Deb said...

Hi Lorraine. Are you going to start posting youtube videos? That would be great. I enjoyed this one of your property. Glad to hear that things are going well. See you again soon, I hope. :-)

Melanie said...

I don't know anything about video editing or putting videos on youtube, but your video was good! Nice and slow (most people pan too quickly) and steady, too.

Thelma said...

I like you video. I've never put one on YouTube. One day I will try. I have traffic noise also. I live near a highway. (too close.)Hope all is well with your. Thelma xo

Rebecca said...

How in the world can I find your videos? I need a link! Please?!? ❤️

That was fun to watch! Nice, smooth video :) My first advice would be to hold your camera sideways, so you get a shot that fills the screen (landscape mode) rather than the thin upright shot that leaves those two black blocks on either side. Very important.
The free video editing program I use is called Open Shot Video Editor. My husband downloaded it onto my laptop. It can be a little glitchy at time, but it really does do a good job, and there are LOTS of youtube videos that will show you how to use it. Just play around until you figure out all the things you want it to do. Have fun!
