About This Class

Do you have a skill you want to share and teach others? But you have no idea where to start? Then you are in the right place!

What you learn
In this class you will learn how to make step-by step a professional Skillshare class. We start with explaining all the gear you need to film an online class. Whether you are filming with your phone, DSLR camera or any other device, I will explain how to use it.

Then we will move on to the next section: I will show you how to set up the frame in which you are going to talk and how you can be more creative with the space you have and make it look good!

After the frame section we will talk about lighting. Lighting is fundamental to film because it creates a visual mood, atmosphere, and sense of meaning for the audience. I will show how you can use cheap lights to make your footage like it is shot in a studio and how you can use fill lights to make your video look professional. Do not worry, if you are not having any lights, I will teach you how you can use natural lighting to film your Skillshare class.

Audio is just as important as lighting. We will discuss the importance of external audio devices, how you should place the mic, and much more.

Your camera is set up, you have decided the frame, lighting and audio are all good, and you have filmed your skill. Now we can talk about the postproduction! I will teach you tricks which you can use to make your class look more interesting. I will also talk about free audio software which gives you clean audio, so your footage would not look like it’s recorded from a cheap mic.

I hope to see your class coming by on Skillshare! I am looking forward to helping you in the process.

So, do I see you in my class? Let’s learn and create!

Transcripts

1. Introduction: So finally, you have decided to make a sculpture class and you have no idea where to start. Or we have already been producing skill share classes, but you want to appear production level so that your classes look super professional. Well, you have come to the right place. My name is, are they saying I'm a freelancer, videographer and a photographer, and I also make travel and lifestyle videos on Youtube. So let's get straight into what all things you will be learning in this class. So in the next 20 to 30 minutes, you'd be learning a lot of stuff. You'll be learning about what gear you need to make your classes look professional. You'll be also talking about filming with a smartphone or filming with whatever camera you have. And in the next section we'll discuss about how you can set up your room so that it looks like a professional studio with minimal glare and spending least amount of money as possible. So we'll be talking about how you can use different studio lights to make your classes look more professional. And if you don't want to invest in a studio light, do not worry because I'll be also talking about how you can film these clauses in natural light or how you can film yourself to make it look more professional. And then we'll move on to the audio section variability talking about how you can place your mike. What are the different types of mics you can purchase to make your audio sound clear to your students. And once we are done discussing about the lights, audio, camera gear and filming will jump onto the post-production process, where I'll show you how you can edit your classes or how you can just hide all the mistakes you might have done while filming the class. And then Bill also jumped to the audience section where I'll show you how you can manipulate the audio to make its own look more professional and to also reduce the ambient noise, which would probably be in your house. Alright, so I hope you're ready for this class. So let's get into the first section, which is the type of equipment that we need to fill my skill share class. 2. Equipments: So what all equipments you need to film a professional class? So first of all, you need a good camera. So that good camera can be the camera from your phone, the camera from your point and shoot, or the camera from your main camera, which can be a professional DSLR or a mirrorless. But what'll specs those cameras should have district filled, at least in high definition. Or if they're filming in 4K, that's much better. And you can always use their smartphones to fill in these classes. Because their smartphones, which are coming these days, they have really good specs. Then you don't have to spend so much money in buying a professional camera and moving on. The next type of camera, which is a point and shoot cameras appointed should is a small camera that relatively cheap as compared to a DSLR. And you can still feel my really good class without spending so much money. But always make sure that whatever camera you buy, the camera should have a flip screen. So whenever you're filming the class, at least you can see yourself in the monitor that how, how the framing is and how you are looking at you in the focus or not. So those small, small thing, they would say so much of your time. So always make sure that whatever camera you get, either its point and shoot or a DSLR, it should have a flip screen. And for example, my mirrorless camera, it doesn't have a flip screen. So I had to get I already had a monitor. And I can just check that what, how the brightness is. Am I in the frame or not? Am I in the focus or not? And the next important equipment is a good mike. So usually for a sculpture class, the best Mike could be a caller mic, or you can use a directional mic, which a lot of YouTubers are bloggers, they use it for their video thumbnail. So yeah, if I just had to fill musculature class, I would have probably got an a Colormap so that I don't have to worry too much about the audio. I don't have to worry too much about the echo in the room, but I already had this professional Mike. It's a directional mic. I-i have used to make my YouTube videos or for my clients video, and this works really good. So I'm just placing Mike. I'll just move it into the frame. So I'm just placing this mic right on top of my head. Or I messed up the system to say I'm just placing this might right on top of my head. And I took out the cover of the mind so that the audio is much clearer. So yeah, investing in a good Mike can just up your video production to like next level, even if we agreed you is not that great. You should always make sure that the audio for your classes should be spot on. So next thing we can invest is in a good studio lights. So you can either get away with using just one studio light or if you want to be more fancy, if you want to look, if you want to make your class look more good, he can always invest in our secondary live, which is this lighting me from behind. So it just makes the subject, which is me, just looks extra beautiful. He can say, but you can still get away with filming and natural light. And we'll talk about that in delights section. 3. How to set up your room: So welcome to the room setup section. So this section is very interesting for me, especially because I feel that if you're watching this video and if you want to make new sketch our classes, you might not own a professional studio or your house might not be super fancy, which might look like a studio. So this section would be very helpful to you just to get more idea that how you can just change your room to make it look like a professional studio. So let's get started. Alright guys, so this is how it might look like. I don't have a lot of stuff. I have a desk chair or bed, and in front of the room there's a lot of empty space. So that gives me a lot of room to move around the things. So let's have a closer look. So for the first scenario, what I have to do is I have to move a lot of stuff. So I emptied my desk. I moved it in the center of the room. I'm placing myself towards the right side of the desk and setting up the main light at 45 degrees which is facing me. And then I'm also setting the fill light, which is behind me and that's 45 degrees as well. And next one, I'm placing the mic closer to me as possible. I'm setting up the laptop and then I'm setting up the camera at an angle so it's not really facing me upfront. So this is what the setup is. My mike is literally on top of. Yeah. I feel I think I'm in the frame, so yeah, this is what the setup is. And Linda first setup and him yeah. Obviously leaving the background blank. There's something in the foreground. So that would be my laptop and it also just helps me to read whatever I'm talking. So yeah, I can just read the bullet points and talk to you guys. And if you see myself, it looks a bit more symmetrical because if I get rid of the laptop, it just feels like there's so much emptiness here. And I'm like there's so much concentration on this side, on my side. So that's why the laptop here. And also in most of my videos, I talk about filming, editing, camera gear or something related to electronics. I'm not talking about cooking. So that way I have something similar on my desk. So in the first set of Esau that there is a lot of movement and I had to do a lot of things around in my room to make it look like there is something in the foreground and there's nothing in the background. So you can do that too. But just make sure that you're not putting in a lot of things in the frame, which might be distracting for your audience. Hi guys. So this is what the setup looks like. For this one light there. That's the bakelite and the monkeys on the top. And the main light is just up here. And then I have something in the background, which is my computer. So we'll see how it looks. I would probably frame the thing around here. And I'll just setup the focus just on my face. But we'll see how it looks. So yeah. So there's one light here, there's one backlight there. So in this scenario, what I've done is I've put something in the background and that's just adding up to the whole theme. So for example, if I'm talking about video editing, filming wherever, and if there's a PC in the background, we just add a bit more to the whole theme that okay, this is what we are talking in the background is this whole thing. For example, if you are making a cooking course and you can see the kitchen in the background, it will just add up to the WIP. So that's the whole thing with putting something in the background. Either you can put something which looks a bit more symmetrical, which looks a bit more aesthetic. Or if you don't have any thing to not make it more complicated and not put something which looks really odd and which looks super distracting. And in the second section, you can be so much creative as well. So always make sure, as I said in the first section, is that try not to put anything in the background which looks super distracting. I've just set up the chair in the middle, the fill light and the main lights are on either side of me and they're placed at 45 degrees and keeping the Michel's close to me. So the mike is acting as a boom like it is right on top of my head and then I'm setting up the camera right in front of me. So why H0 the setup like this? Because I just wanted to show my students that you don't need to have a lot of fancy stuff. You can just fill this class without having anything in the foreground, without having anything in the background. You just need to invest more time and energy in thinking about the lighting placement and the audio placement and thinking about how you set up the frame and how he set up the camera. So I hope this section helped you a lot and it gave you bit more idea. And I hope that you already looking around your room to just see that what are like, what would be my background at? What thing would be my foreground. So yeah. And you can always fill these classes even in your living room, even in your kitchen, even in your bathroom, maybe, I don't know. But always just make sure that whatever environment you are filming in, there is not much echoing that. So I have this carpet floor. So that's why the ACO is not that much. And always make sure that whatever environment you're filming in, the lighting is consistent. So that's why I encouraged my students to invest in a proper studio light. Because if you are relying on the natural light in your room, the lighting would change throughout the class and it just wouldn't look good. So yeah, always make sure that whatever setup you choose, the lighting is consistent in that setup. All right, so that's it for the room setup. And now let's move on to the next section. 4. How to set up your camera: So in this section we'll be talking about camera setup. So I've already talked a little bit about cameras in the second section. But in this section we'll be talking about how do you place your camera, how to choose the framing and all that sort of stuff. So first rule with filming any video, always make sure that you're filming at the high level. And one setting up the camera always makes sure wherever you are placing the objects, it should be in a good competition. It should look more symmetrical. So if we have a look at the first setup, this is how it looks. And if we take out the framing and composition of the second setup, this is how it looks. And in this competition, I'm trying to keep everything symmetrical. So there's nothing really in the background. So if I was sitting more towards here, I'll just move my desk. Oh, I'll just move my chair. So if I'm sitting here, it just looks like this area is so much blanket. There's something missing. If I would have kept anything here, it would look good. Same goes for the other side. So if I just move more towards this side, it just looks just it just doesn't suit the eye. For if I'm sitting in the center, it is looks more professional and unlike almost in the middle of the frame. So always make sure that your framing is either symmetrical or if you are on one side of the frame, just make sure that there's something filling on the other side so that it shouldn't look to empty. And ultra while filming these classes always make sure that your head is not chopped off or there shouldn't be too much gap from the top to your head. So yeah. Yeah, that looks good. So yeah. And the next thing you need to keep an eye in the camera setup section is always fill me in manual setting. So my ISO, my shutter speed, my aperture, they are all at manual numbers. So whatever happens if I'm moving front or back or whatever, whatever I'm doing in this frame, the lighting would be consistency. I always make sure that you're filming in manual setup. And also make sure that if your camera doesn't have a good autofocus, setup the manual focus and focus your face while filming the class so that the focus is not changing while you're filming because it doesn't matter if you feel no video in 4K. If you film a video, an ATM, it's super high-quality. But if your face is not in focus, is just going to, is just not going to look good. 5. Setting up the studio lights: So welcome to delight section. So in this section we'll be talking about the mean light water use, the fill light water use, and how we can place these lights at different positions. And that would dramatically change how you look in the camera. So just let me talk about this like what I use. So I use this neon light. I bought it from Amazon, so 50 bucks, it's a pair. And I didn't use the second one, so I gave it to my friend, buddy or whatever. But this slide, like you can see how cool the footage looks from this $50 cheap lied. And if you go online, there's so many expensive options, but I would highly recommend you invest in these ones. And next we'll be talking about how we can change the position of this line with respect to me, and how it would change their video and how it would change the way I look in the video. Alright guys, this is the first LOS and this one I'm placing the camera right next to me. Three, it's not at 45 degrees angle anymore. It comes back to 0 degree angle and it's lighting me up from the side. And as you can see that my face gets much darker on the other side. And once I move the camera back to 45 degrees, that's the nominal of what we had for the entire video. Now what I'm doing is I'm placing the lights on the other side of me. So in this scenario, my main light M I feel like are on the same side. And now what I do is I'm placing the light's right in front of me. So it's sliding my face from front so it's not at an angle and it's giving this kind of shape to my face. So in conclusion, what we see is that the best scenario for placing my lights is at 45 degrees on the other side of the fill light. So what happens if I am placing this light at a 45-degree is, you might see in a lot of movies, you might see in a lot of interviews is that it's lining one side of my face, but it's also creating a bit of traumatic shadow and it's making a triangle on my other side of the face. So that creates a dramatic effect and that gives more shape in the camera to your face. So yeah, if you get these slides has put it at 45, standing next to you and 45 tilted down from the top. And let's move on to the thin line. So why do we use fill light? So here's an example of a video just with this slide. And here is an example of a video fits both the lights on. And this is the example of a video with no delay. Some say as you can see that when I'm using the fill light, it just gives me a good background fill. And it also gives more shipped to my face, gets more shipped in my body. So yeah, it's not the most important thing. But you can always, if you are willing to invest, why not? So what light I'm using is it's an LED light. It's a bit expensive. I think it caused me around 150. But I also use this for my professional work. I use this for my YouTube videos, so you don't have to invest in it. But if you're willing to go with a good fill light, and always make sure that whatever you feel like you use, you can change the color temperature. So what I am doing is this color temperature, it's more sort of whitish color temperatures around 5500 Kelvin to 6 thousand Kelvin. And that one, the temperature is set to 3200 Kelvin. So this is more sort of a white look. And that's giving me more sort of a yellowish look. So there's a bit of contrast in between both the slides. But if I use just white light in the background, it wouldn't look as good as how it's looking now. And here are a few examples of how this image would change. If I'm changing the position of the fill light, our guys in this fill light scenario now I moved the fill light next to me. Is that was it 45 degrees behind me and now I brought it to 0 degrees. So now it's lighting me from the side. And now I'm moving the fill light in front of me at 45 degrees. On one side of me. That is the main light at 45. And on the other side, there's this fill light at 45 and there's no light behind me. So now the fill light is not really acting as a fill light, it's acting as a main light. So you can see that clear oranges and clear wide on either side of my face. So rule of thumb for fill light, it's placed at 45 degrees and it's facing straight up towards my bag. So these are a few different ways how you can use these slides. Fulfill a sculpture class. 6. Filming with Natual Lights: And if you don't want to invest in allied, no problem. So here are three examples of how you can place yourself with respect to the natural light coming in the room to make your classes look more professional. Slightly discussed about this 45-degree rule, you can use the natural light like that. So say for example, if you see the first example, light is coming from my side. Obviously cannot change the natural light, but if I place myself at 45 degrees facing the light, the light would be hitting on one side of my face and it would create that triangle, what we talked about on the other side and therefore giving more shipped to my face. And if I just facing straight up to the natural light, it's not gonna look as good as compared to the first case. So yeah, that's how you can make use of natural lights to fill in these classes. So that's it for the lighting part. Let's move onto the next section. And if you have any questions by far, please comment down below. And thank you so much. If you're still watching the course, hang on. You don't have to go and just appreciating the fact that you are giving your time to learn these classes. 7. How to use external Mic: So the next one is how to place your mike. So get the most optimized audio as possible. So I guess I'm just placing the, my literary dried here. So what it's doing is that it's capturing my voice, but it's as close to me as possible. Whereas if I put the mike on top of the camera, this is how it's going to sound. Alright, so that's how it sounds. The mike on top of my camera. So the mileage is not here is just place a little bit further away. So it's not going to be as clear as the Muybridge was on top of my head. So if you're using a direction like make sure you're keeping it close to your face and you can take the cover of the mike off so there's no barrier between your voice and the mind. So if you're not using a directional Mike, if you're using a color Mike, you can always just pluck it on your shirt or your t-shirt, but always make sure that it's not rubbing against something because that would also pick up in the cost. And if you don't want to invest in in, Mike is going to be really had to film these classes. Because even if I just filled me with my cameras Mike, it's not as good and here's how it sounds. And this video is just by using the camera, like, I mean, the URL is decent, but then you put it on the mike and if you place it close to your faith is just up to the next level. So yeah, this audio is from the Mike from the camera. As you can see that the best audio I can get is while I'm placing the mite here. 8. How to talk in front of the camera: So this section is for people who are filming these classes for the first time, how to talk in from the camera. What I would say is practice. The more you practice, the more you would get better at that. And to make your life easier, I'll give you a few tips of how you can just talk through this whole class in one go with me, whatever I'm talking, it's not in one go. There's so many cuts, there are so many free text. And there would be some people who can just talk in one, go for half an hour or two hours and get it done. But I'm not that person. Most of us are not that person. So how to make your life easier but filming this culture classes pre-plan a lot. So before setting up a camera, before filming, you should know what are you going to talk about and how you can make it more structured is what I do is I type everything, whatever I have to talk. So first I would write the hitting of the class, then I would write different contents, and then I will just see that however I'm presenting the class, would it make sense for my students or not? And once I've done finalizing the contents, I would sort of write the bullet points of each section, that world things I need to be talking in that class. And on an extreme level, sometimes when I'm in, I started filming these classes. What I would do is I would literally write sentence by sentence. What all things I will be talking in the classes. And then if I have a written script of sentence by sentence, that will things I was gonna talk, then it's just much more easier. And I'm not saying to just read that out, but I'm just saying that just read it once and then you have bit more idea that, Okay, this is what I was gonna talk and this is what I have to deliver in an effective way. I hope that makes sense. It might be very tricky for people who are starting for the first time, like my first class, it was about filming a cinematic video. Great class, by the way. See, I got blank. So my first class, it was about filming a cinematic video. It's a really good class. But it took me so long. It took me, I think 2.5 to three hours to fill in that class because I was doing it for the first time and I had no idea, like most of the time that OK, what do I talk next and what do I talk next? But the only smart thing I did back then was I wrote the tire scripts everytime I would go blank. I would just read everything and then film that again. Also, what you can do sometimes is that make use of the B-roll. So what I'm doing is if I'm talking one sentence to you and if I do not know what the next sentences, I would just finish that sentence. Then I'll take a pause, then I'll start the next sentence. And I can always cut the pause section in post-production. Or if you have a really long sentence to say anything. If you don't have break that sentence, what I do is I taught the first half of the sentence and then I would just read it from my phone because all the script is on my phone. And while I'm doing that, I would put a B-roll video while I'm talking in the background. So for my students, it would look like I am talking the whole sentence in one goal. But in reality I'm just talking parts and parts of sentences. And I'm going back and forth between a bureau video and talking myself. So yeah, with talking in front of the camera. Once you've written all the script, once I've written all the bullet points, always make sure that practice a lot because Yeah, for us it's not easy for most of us talking from the camera. For some people, it's supernatural. It didn't come naturally to me. So what I would do is I will just practice a lot. And even if I filmed this class today and I could get an okayed result, what I would do is if I film this class again tomorrow, First of all, it would take it would take half of the time to film this entire section. And then I would be better at talking because I already know what that what I have to talk and I wouldn't go back and forth with my phone. I wouldn't just fumbling between the sentences and I would exactly know what I have to talk. So yeah, it's it's more about patients that year. First-class wouldn't be as good as how you think it should be. But I would say just do it. And with filming more classes, he would get better at the sets. A lot of information for the first timers, but yeah, I wish you all the best. And next one we will be talking about is the post-production work. 9. Video editing - Premiere Pro: So we know what type of camera gear we want. Fino a little bit about the audio. We know a lot about lights. We know about filming in natural light vino, about filming ourselves, about how can we effectively talk is from the camera. Now for example, you have done all the filled me work for the class. Now is the time to go to the computer. I'm pointing that direction was because my computer is literary. They're so now's the time to go to the computer and then do the editing part. And why I also included this section is because it doesn't matter how good of a quality your video is and how good you were talking in front of the camera. If your class is not interesting, The students would just sign out of the class. How can you make your closet interesting? We'll be talking about that in the editing section. We will be also talking about how to hide your mistakes while filming. How we can calibrate this plane footage to a footage looking like this. Alright guys, I've imported this raw video to software called premier per, anticipate what the timeline looks like. So you can see that there's a video file and then there's an audio file attached to it. And all these files are in a raw format and there's no editing, then there's no sound tweaking done this file, and it's a pretty big file. So I have recorded this whole thing into different parts. So part one is half and r and part two is half and r. And I'm just going to shorten it down to 30 minutes because I have been talking a lot of extra stuff which are not really necessary for the class. So first what we'll do is to color create the roll video. So I'm not going to explain in detail how to collaborate your videos good. It's all going to be different for different camera files. Because all different camera files there, they would have different profile. So the color grading process would be very different. But the only tip I would give you is that whenever you collaborate, always make sure that you're not putting in some fancy colors on the video. So the video should look more natural. It should have proper brightness, contrast, shadows, and saturation. So there shouldn't be anything which looks too much or you shouldn't put a strong light on the video. It should just look very natural how it would look from your eyes. So once I collect my foot, it, this is how it looks. So what am I doing is I've just put a bit of color in the video. And it's not going to be super saturated. And you can see the direction of the light and the fill light in the video. And you can also see the ship, what the Bee light makes on the video. What B I've talked in previous classes. And yep, let the Premier Pro savior projects are always make sure you're saving the project. And if you see the difference, that is how it looks. I haven't done anything fancy, but yeah, whatever I've done, I've just put a bit of color in the video so that it looks like there's more life in the video. So what I'm gonna do, I'm gonna just delete the raw video files and put the color graded video files in the main timeline. So why I collaborated before is because once you have colocated. The main talking section, even if you do a lot of cuts, colour grade would be on all the files, on all the small different cliffs because few color grade later. You have to collaborate each clip individually. And Bill do exact same thing for the audio. So with the audio, I have already edited the audio in Audacity. What are we, what we're going to talk in the next section. And then I'm going to do the same thing. Dragged the audio, drag the edited audio on the main timeline, delete the row audio, and then drag the min audio just below the edited video. And then what I'm gonna do, I'm gonna just attach these two audio files. Let's do the class. And now when I press record, I just realized that I have there. I think I'm not really talking in anything important at this point. I think from here the main class would start. So as you can see that I didn't really talk and important in the first section, so I'm just going to click it and delete it, and then start the class from here. So finally, so finally you have decided to make a sculpture class, or you have already been. So finally, you have decided to make a sculpture class, but you have no idea where to start, or you have already been producing skill share classes. But you want to up your production level though. You have come to the right place. So you can see that there is a little bit of jitter at this point as well. So I'm just gonna get rid of the unnecessary pad and then put all the clip, put all the things together. So finally, you have decided to make a sculpture class, but you have no idea where to start or you have already been producing skill share classes. But you want to appear production level though. The vol, you have come to the right place. Production level though. Vow, you have come to her. Well, the wall yet, so I'm just gonna get rid of that small bit and now it should be fine. And that's what I have I have to do for the next half an hour clip. So what I'm doing is I'm just getting rid of wherever wherever I stopped or wherever whatever I said didn't make sense. Or if I said something incorrectly, I would just get rid of that. And then I would only put the important bit, doesn't matter how many cuts are there in the video. I'll just put the important lifts and after cutting all the unnecessary. But this is how it looks as you can see that there's a lots of cuts in this small section. Say if I plate now the audio would look really good. But then you can see from the video that there's lots of cuts us on YouTube. So let's get straight into what all things you will be learning in this class. So in the next 20 to 30, there's two different ways to hide these cuts. First one, what we can do is at every cutting point, wherever I have cut the video, I will put some B-roll clips or whatever things am talking. So I've already sorted out few B-roll, clip them, discipline and drag and drop the B-roll cliffs on the cut. Well, you have come to the right place. My name is ID Singh. I'm a freelancer, videographer and a photographer, and I also make travel and lifestyle videos on Youtube. So let's get straight into one of the things you will be learning in this class. So in the next 22. So you see once I put the B-roll cliffs, it looks more natural. And whatever clips I have put, it is relevant to whatever I am talking in the background. And for the second Cut, I'm not going to put a B-roll clip because it's going to be too much of a B-roll. So then what am I gonna do in the second ket is I am just going to zoom in. So my scale is at 50, so I'm gonna zoom into 60. So it would make my audience look-alike. The video is shot from two different cameras. I style videos on Youtube. So let's get straight into what all things you would be learning in this class. So in the next 20 to 30 minutes, you will be learning a lot of stuff. You'll be learning about water gear. You need to make your classes look professional, will be also. And in the next credits, coming back from close up to wide angle shot again. Oh, we'll be also talking about, we'll be also talking. There is another cut. So I'm gonna drag B-roll clips and I'm gonna do the zoom in, zoom out thing again. So this is what I'm gonna do for the entire sequence. So after putting all the relevant clefs, This is how my timeline would look. So the first row, it has the main video files. The second row would have the B-roll files, and the third row would have all the graphics and stuff. And in the audio, the first row would have the main audio file. And the second row I have put a background music. And I've said the volume of deep background music really low so that it's not really interfering between what am I saying? Let's move on to the next one. So what am I doing in this class is that I'm also making a short intro for each episode. So this is how the intro looks. So it starts with a music which is fading in. So what'll equipments you need? And it's showing the heading of the class. So I have put this just to make it look more cool and just to make it look more interesting. Because during the entire time, I don't want the audience to just see my face. I also want the audience to see variety of different things. And I am talking more about filming camera gear or something related to filming. So I should also show it to my audience. What are things I know? And then in the comments they might want to learn that I can make a video about that in future. And then in some of these sections in which there is a lot of explanation and there's a lot of confusion going on. I'm also doing a short outer. So in the outro, I'm just putting this summary of whatever things have talked in the class or I am just putting the steps of what all things have talked in the class so that if someone is taking notes, taking this pause at that section and write down, they don't have to go back to the whole class to listen to whatever I have said. In every section, what am I doing is I'm, I'm doing my best to put, oh, cliffs or put the graphics to explain my audience better about whatever I am talking in the class. So as you can see that here I have put like 34 layers of graphics and it's showing whatever I explained before. It's gonna take a lot of work, but it looks good and it looks more professional and it also builds a lot of trust between you and your students. And if I see the timeline of the full class, what I have done is I've distributed the class in all different sections and these are how the episode looks. And in the first video row, min talking and the, in the second video row, there's the roles. And in the third, fourth, fifth video Rose, There's all different graphics have sorted all different types of video clips together. Because then I'm going to edit, it's going to be easier for me to just go and replace that file or if I had to do any changes, it's going to be really easy. And same thing I've done for audio files at the main talking file is on the row one and all the other intro music or the background music, they're all on-road. Alright guys, that's it from Premier Pro. In the next episode, I'm going to be teaching you about how to edit your audio in Audacity software. Thank you so much for watching. 10. Audio Editing - Audacity (free software): Our guy, so I hope you enjoyed the editing section. Next one, let's move on to the audio section. So for the audience section, I use this free software called Audacity. It just takes three to four steps to get your audio from this. What's up, guys? This is the audio test for the skill share class. To this what's up, guys, this is the audio test for the skill share class. So let's jump onto the PC and we'll talk more about the audio later. And I severe using this free audio software call or density. You can find this online. Yeah, it's absolutely free and it's so simple to edit on this one. So what are we gonna do? Open Audacity copier video file. So with this software, as soon as you install, you wouldn't be able to copy the video files or copy mp4 MOV files. You have to do something in the settings to get that software to read those files. So I'll just put the link of the videos in description below that how you can also import the video files as an audio file in audacity or lots of guys, This is the audio test for this culture class. What's up, guys? This is the audio test for the skill share class. So that's our audio. And if I zoom in, then you can see the waveforms properly. So you can see that there's a little bit of noises in between the main clips. So what are we going to do? We would select those little noises. And then you go to noise reduction. And then you select noise reduction profile. And once our noise reduction profile is selected, a Select the whole audio. And then we reduce the noise from the whole audience phase. It's selecting that small bit of the distortion, what we have to get rid of, and the software would get rid of that distortion throughout the whole audio. So once we are done with noise reduction, this is how our audio sounds. What's up, guys? This is the audio tests for the skill share class. What's up, guys? This is the audio test for the skill share class. And once we do normalize, what it does is that if there is any peeking into video or if there is any lows in the video, it would just try to balance the highs and lows at the same level that it's not going to be super accurate, but it would try to do it best. And once we do the normalized thing, he could still see that all the letters, all the small noises, bits, it's going to come back again. So we have to do the noise reduction process. One more time. See me us electrical audio noise reduction. Done. What's up, guys? This is the audio test for this class. What's up, guys? This is the audio test for this skill share class. So once we're done with normalizing, our next step is to compress the audio. So what compressor does is that it sort of enhances the audio levels throughout the whole channel. And once we ended compressor, we go to equalization. So what we do in equalization is we make a graph similar to this. So on the base side we are increasing the base to six dB. And we're doing the same thing on the treble side. And now you will see the difference in between the sounds. What's up, guys? This is the audio test for the skill share. What's up guys, this is the audio test for this skill share class. So once we did the equalization, there would be a lot of peaking in the audio. So what are we going to do? Is we would normalize the audio again. So what normalize with two again for the last time as it would reduce the peaking. And it would also bring the audio levels down a little bit so that when you listen to that audio in any format, in any software, in any device, it's not going to fall apart. What's up, guys, this is the audio tests for the skill share class. What's up, guys? This is the audio test for the skill share class. Guys, that's it for the audio section. 11. Conclusion: So yes, if you're thinking about starting a sculpture class, I would say just doing nothing to motif in if you don't have the perfect camera gear, it's not like if you're a premium member, it's not going to cost you anything. So just do it and see how EQ, and after you first-class didn't, you would realize that, oh, maybe I should get this thing. Maybe I should get this thing. Maybe this is the thing, I should improve it. So yeah, I would just say just go out there and try it. And then we'll see how you go. And with the classes, whatever whatever things have discussed. You can always ask any questions. I'm online almost every day, especially in the lockdown. I'm online almost every day. So yeah. So I feel that I've covered everything, so yeah, that's it for the class guys.
