So you’re probably wondering why I like to use my phone when shooting a video. There are couple reasons behind it. The main reason being the convenience: it’s really easy to just take your phone out of your pocket and start shooting right away. Second reason why I like to shoot with my phone is because of the homely atmosphere you can create with your phone footage.
That’s going to look really nice when you’re blending all the different type of footage together to create a final product. So in this article I’m going to give you guys a couple of tips and tricks. Now I like to use when I’m shooting with my pocket. So the first step I’d like to talk about is the camera settings and I normally like to shoot at 1080p at 60 frames per second just to keep all the file size down and, of course, have the ability to slow down the footage in post production.
So another quick tip I like to briefly talk about, is you have to shoot in a landscape mode? So what essentially happens when you shoot in portrait mode? Is that you’re going to get this really annoying forest like black bars at the side, and when you go on and scale the footage you’re going to lose a lot of image quality so always use the landscape and you’re going to have no problems regarding so another? Very important tip I like to talk about is the use of in camera transitions when you’re shooting.
What I mean by that is. You want to take plenty of shots with a lot of movements, movements and there’s simple panning or dolly shot there on an edit you’ll. Have so much flexibility, you can speed around even cut you’re going to do pretty much anything you wan na do and yeah plenty of in-camera transition. So another important tip I like to talk about is you have to make the most out of for your phone operator? What I mean by that is most of the modern phones if they have functions such as time-lapse mode portrait mode, and you really have to start using those different functionalities in your mobile device to get the best out of you.
So the last few tips I’d like to talk about is the use of dedicated article apps that allows you to manually change is so shutter speed and aperture. This is so that you don’t experience any random changes of exposure in your footage, while you’re shooting all right guys. So, as you can see, I’m in my editing desk and since this article is an association with film or a pro, I will be using this software to edit this article.
What I’m going to do now is create a new project. Okay, so I’ve opened up film or Perl, and this is what the interface looks like you’ll. Have your viewers tab here, tremor control scopes, text layout and your effects are in here, so what I’m going to do now is I’m going to import some of the footage? Okay, so, as you can see, I’ve imported pretty much everything and what I’m going to do now is I’m going to create a new folder to keep everything organized.
So I’m going to call it I phone 8, so I’m going to make another folder and call it an audio just to keep everything organized like I said, I’m just going to place it in there. So you can see. I have the article folder and the audio folder now, so what I’m going to do now is I’m going to import all these footage into the timeline. How tomorrow works is pretty much identical to how premier works. So what you want to do is vessei.
You want to start a clip from here. You just press, I and you want to end the clip around here, press o and since I just want the article I’m just going to drag the article there. So I’m going to place it down here and there you go it’s as easy as that, as you can see, your preview is right here, I’m going to make a bit more bigger because I like working in a bigger workspace, okay. So what I’m going to do now is I’m going to do the same process for every single footage.
Just so I select everything and I know what I’m working with. So what I’m going to be doing now is I’m going to try and reposition pretty much all these shots so that they match and I’m going to explain to you guys why I’m doing this process. So what I’ve done here is I’ve created these six different sequences, which I’m going to be using footage from to create a final sequence. So, as you can see from the sequence, this little sequence has all the shots that is either planning this way or planning.
This way, this shot is panning from left to right, this shiz band from left to right discharge pan from so that is all the footage that I have that is panning from left to right and in this sequence the camera is panning from up to down. So up to down or down to up so what I can essentially do is, I can just reverse the shot and create that up to down motion, so this is down to up up to down up to down down to up.
So what I’m going to be doing in the final sequences that I’m going to be speed, ramping, the start and the end? So once I speed ramp the boat ends, I’m going to get that really smooth up to down motion. So now I am planning to create the final sequence and I want to play shots in a way that there’s a story behind it, so I’m looking for an establishing shot. First, I think this is a pretty good shot to start with.
So what I want to do with this shot is, I want to make it into a slow most and I’m going to set the speed to about 50 % right. So, as you can see, it has smoothened up. So I’ve left two second gap here just to place the text at the end and what I want to do with this shot is. I want it to kind of fade from black, so I’m going to go to transform, go to opacity, go to the first frame, set opacity, zero hit.
The keyframe button go about roughly one second in and set up a 300. So what this essentially does it just kind of fades from black into the actual footage? So I think I’m going to make this a bit longer, so I’m just going to drag the keyframe and that’s looking really good. So what I’m going to be doing now is I’m going to create a speed ramp between these two clips. So there are a couple of different ways to do: speed, ramps in forum or a pro.
How I like to do is by simply cutting the end and the start off the shot. I want the transition to be in so after I cut out both the clips. I’m going to right click go to speed duration, and I’m going to set this to around. To 50 %, what I’m going to do now is I’m going to follow the same step to ramp up the end and the start of this. But as you can see, I’m finished creating a sequence and now what I’m going to do is I’m going to start color correcting this footage.
So once I color correct, I’m going to add a couple of sound layers and then finally export the article so right now, I’m going to show you guys the final article, the final output of what we created in filmora pro so guys. This is what we created with the iPhone footage on the Fillmore Pro. I hope that you learned something from this article. I hope that you enjoy it. Just remember you don’t need an expensive camera when you starting off.
All you need is a good editing. Software and just a phone, I shot many articles with iPhone 4 for, like two months before finally buying my very first camera. My very first editing software was also from aura. I just find it really user friendly. I definitely do think that, if you’re starting off your YouTube career, this is the software that you need to go after check it out. I’ll put the link in the description below where you can get it for free, and I will also put the download link off the files in the description.
So you can try it out yourself and once you edit, all those footage, make sure to tag me if you’re floating on your social media platform I’ll be sure to give feedback on every one of you guys. So I hope they enjoyed reading this article and I’ll see you in the next article
