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 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'.
