About This Class

Video recording used to be something that was only done by professionals in large studios full of expensive equipment.

The first thing you need to know is that video quality is very important on Youtube, because it improves your Youtube SEO, Videos have been proven to demand more consumer attention than any other medium.

Most people know sound quality is important but they still tend to focus more on HD videos. Technically, YouTube is all about video but don’t overlook the importance of sound. 

I think audio quality can be a little more important than video quality, because when the audio is clear, people don´t have to work to understand the video and the message.

I will show you the best resources to create awesome Youtube videos, the best microphones, cameras, lights, softwares and many more things.

It is one of the most important things you have to do before creating your first Youtube videos. I will show you the best and cheap resources in order to get high quality image and sound.

The best is that most of these resources are very cheap and you can recover your investment in a short period of time.

Then, if you want to create amazing videos for your Youtube channel or your own digital products.

This course is for you.

There are so many different types off microphones, video cameras, Webcams. His sports came in a soft words, but I will show you at least off the basic be equipment required to start a YouTube channel from scratch. The Fields camera is the Logitech HD Pro Weapon C 920. This is a special for talking head bilious, especially. You can put this camera on your computer. It is very ship $65. It has full HD videos. It is compatible with Windows seven. With those 8 10 on Mac, it is very useful if you want to, recalled Venus with your computer. Yeah, that one is in NYC on a AU 140. This is very used by most off the most successful. You do it. This came and I can't record high quality videos on it. It's not very expensive. Just $200 on the best camera that you come by. They a condom. 35 i It is quite dispensable. If you come by this camera, I'd recommend this camel about the view are on about it and ligament the fields came in. This is very special and is very cheap.

Get Better Audio: Most people know some quality is important, but they still tend to focus more on ash. TBD. Technically you took is all about being you, but don't would look the importance off sound, I think. How do quality can be a little more important than be equality? Because when they are Jewish, clear people don't have to work to understand the video on the message. Then you need to have a good microphone, which are lows you create, Ah, high quality audio for your YouTube videos that are two kinds off microphones condenses on dynamic microphones. Condenser microphones are very sensitive. You can't record the noise off the street on the people around you, on the least not good for a noisy place. They are more expensive you to the quantity off electronic parts. You should use it. If your voice is soft on. You have a quiet place to record the l ideal for recalling sounds such as drums on beaters . On the other hand, dynamic microphones can provide excellent sound quality and performance the very shape compared toa condenser Mike. If you live in a nice EA area, this microphone is excellent for you. It only takes noise from the front. It is very used by singles on your list. Then I'm going to show you the best condenses on dynamic might. This is the best contents. And Mike, it is a little expensive not long. $130. You can capture the noise off every place from the from from the bark flown every site. If you have a noisy area, I don't recommend this microphone. The other one is the blue and no well, eyes. It had the same features that the other micro front, but at least cheaper if you had on a budget, you can buy this microphone, but remember that this is a condenser mike. Then you recall the noise off all the ages. And if you live in a nice area, you can't recall all of this noise. The next are the dynamic Mike's. This is the Audio Technica.

It is very important if you recall in a that place or if you want to look more professional . Lighting committed a difference between at reliable video on my low quality BU, especially if you are recording for you, took niches like Make Morning three Al estate business on until a penmanship. The big problem is that this kind of flights are very spend ship. They can cost upto $300 recommend the next two lights. One is very spend ship on the other one coming perfect if you are on a budget. The fields one is the Estella follow 18 inches. It is quite expensive, but it is very easy to use. Do you have to put this in front of your face? Put.
