I have made many more videos on Google stuff, will add more to playlist - for the minute here are the five.

Words Pictures Film a new Paid Channel

Last month on 22 Dec 16, I passed 1,000 Subscribers on my YouTube Channel.

Not a huge milestone in creator standards, but being as I’m a YouTube Verified Partner it has one huge benefit - the gateway and opportunity to start a Paid Channel (help page).

This is a curious while fascinating area to research. I say that as it’s a direct opposite of what most people see at public youtube.

News Year’s Day can be a time of reflection for many. An early draft of Resolutions - things to put right or try harder for in the year ahead.

Like many people, when I’m out walking, driving, out on my bike, cooking food, taking a shower or lying there with eyes closed waiting for sleep images or ideas flash through our brains.

I was delighted, as after many failed attempts to edit on mobile I had albeit given up.

There are two core features that a still camera or video camera needs to do: Lock Exposure and Lock Focus - Open Camera performs these two beautifully (get Open Camera App in Play Store).

Back in the day, here were was no ‘auto exposure’ or ‘auto focus’. A photographer would have full control over what ended up on the film.

The Android RecForge II Resource Page

Recording decent audio is a vital, and as such a necessity. Get it wrong and your audience will leave you faster than a child when the ice cream runs out.

If a video is pretty rubbish to look at, but has great audio - it's watchable. If a video has fantastic looking cinematography but terrible audio where you cannot hear a mumbled word an actor says - you have big problems.

The Android Power Director Resource Page

edit screen from Moto E this morning
PowerDirector, yes spelt as one word, is a mobile app from Cyberlink. I believe it was released for tablets and then for phones (maybe late 2015).

Get the App from the Google Play Store.

On my test using a Moto E 2nd Gen, I used 22 short clips and expected very little. I say that as I've never found an app so far that has match 'me with it'.
