The Basics Of Putting Video On Your Website - Setting Up...
(Page 3 of 5 )
Step 1 - Setting Up
Go ahead and put your video camera on the tripod. Setup your laptop next to the video camera. Now go ahead and plug in the firewire cable to the video camera and then to the firewire port on your computer. Your computer should automatically recognize the camera and ask you what you want to do. Click on the capture video icon. This will open up Windows Movie Maker on your computer Ė a free program installed on all Windows XP computers (Iím assuming your using a PC and not a Mac since Macs are a bit more intuitive for making videos, and you probably wonít need this guide) Make sure youíre area is well lit. You will want it to seem really bright in order for it to look good on video.
Step 2 - Recording the video
All you need to do is click on capture video in Windows Movie Maker and you can record your video. When youíre done, just push stop.
