Video production can be done in many ways – from Hollywood movies to selfie videos. In the following we have collected some of the basics for you.
For professional quality video production, you need a Full-HD Camera with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Also make sure to have enough memory sticks and spare batteries.
Recommended cameras: Canon EOS, Nikon D, Sony HDR.
High Quality HD videos
H.264 codec or similar
we recommend 1920 x 1080 (1080p or 1080i), or at least 1280 x 720 p
supported file format: mp4, m4v, flv, avi, mpg, mov, etc.
In learning video production, capturing quality audio is key. Arguably, this is the single most important technical aspect of creating a good learning video. Here are some guidelines.
Using an external microphone is imperative!
Before recording, check to make sure the volume is correctly adjusted.
Make sample recordings and have someone else give you feedback about the sound quality.
If you are recording outside, you should use a microphone that you can attach to your jacket.
Recommended settings for recording: 48kHz and 24 bit
We advise using the standard 3 point lighting in video production. If you prefer to use natural light, keep in mind that the sun moves and your picture therefore changes.
