Happy Tree #3,079

YouTube is designed to make producing videos as easy as possible.

But one of the videos on YouTubeHelp's channel makes it appear almost too easy. Go to http://youtu.be/Apadq9iPNxA and watch “How do I make a video?” As Figure 3.1 illustrates, “Painting with Pictures featuring Rob Boss” quickly covers the basics in just 2 minutes and 22 seconds.

Figure 3.1 “How do I make a video?”

According to this spoof of Bob Ross, creator and host of The Joy of Painting, all you need to make a video is a device that can capture digital movies. This could be your cell phone, a digital camera, or a web cam. You will then copy the digital movies to your computer using a FireWire cable or USB mass storage device.

Next, you can either upload them as is or edit them with software such as Windows Movie Maker or iMovie to add titles and special effects. Or, you can use Adobe Premiere Pro or Apple's Final Cut Pro to edit and improve your videos.
