I've been shooting Digital video for 3 years. Got by just fine without editing any of it. By keeping the video clips short to very short. I don't need to edit. Just don't play the video, if there is nothing there or offensive.
Anyway I made many many good points, for why editing home video should be avoided.
Just to get Censored, by the group that is always screaming about freedom of expression etc etc.
Hit a raw nerve obviously.
It would be good to know what finally set them off. I was the one under attack, by those belligerent SOBs
They should be a little more open, to the future of video, than that.
Shoot a lot of video, you get good with the camera. Shoot a lot of video, when you are good with the camera, then look out. The editing can come later, much much later.
Video editing is expensive and time consuming. I could easily walk thru a museum or gallery, add a tour guide and have riveting video. On an inexpensive DVD, right away. That's what, they should be doing some more of. Editing less.
Unedited video, with good content is a refreshing change from the chopped & remixed product we see on TV and at the movies.
Come follow me on the trapline and other outdoor adventures Bring your camcorder and shoot, shoot, shoot.
I'll just have to find a couple more forums, to continue on the fight. Hopefully, some of those not banned, blocked or suspended will carry on the discussion at the other sites.
