Post-production will start after there is some photo-, audio- or video material created and then through editing from this raw material something beautiful is created. Here are few examples…
It is pretty common that after the wonderful vacation trip there are hours and hours video material shot but it is very boring to watch all this as it is altogether too long. In the process of video editing there will be all unnecessary and technically weak material removed. Videos from different cameras will be combined, titles added to describe time/location, subtitles added if something foreign language, etc. Final result consist of only the very best moments in most compact form which is easy to watch and good way to remember all those positive emotions.
Converting helps to make original video files from camera smaller so that they will take less space and also can be easily shared over internet and through different social media channels if needed. Also it helps when recording is done on some old fashioned medium like VHS or similar and there is no more equipment to play it back. Process of video converting will turn those old videos into modern digital video files for further editing or playback on computer/smart-TV.
Original video material can be on following media types:
- MiniDV (DV & HDV)
- USB hard drive / memory stick
- SATA hard drive (bulk disk)
- SD memory card
- Photo negative (black&white and color)
- Color diapositive (color slide)
