Notes on Recording Editing and Thinking About The Central Park Memorial Video Piece

On the 5th Dec 2016, fifteen days ago, I found and paid for the PowerDirector video editing App by Cyberlink.

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

This post is a timeline in a method I adopted to create one video, ‘The Central Park Memorial Mother and Child’.

The Open Camera Resource Page and Other Ideas

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 PowerDirector Android App Resource Page

edit screen from Moto E this morning
Update 20 April 17, All videos on playlist now titled PowerDirector Android App 01 to 21. This is in line with official Cyber Link YouTube Help Channel also using the 'PowerDirector Android App' wording (see their 11 video playlist).

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'.
