Making videos Upload Images   Link   Email

I'm just starting to make a few videos for my Access shell.
What a pain! I can appreciate all the work Richard does to crank these out every day.

Richard, would you share what tool(s) you use to make your videos, and any tips on how to get started and the pitfalls?

Hi Thomas,

I asked Richard the same question when I started making my videos:

As far as the software we use, Bandicam & Bandicut, they are reasonably priced and work great.

As far as method:

Record very short segments. Start and stop every 1-2 minutes. It is super easy to stitch the small videos together with Bandicut. It is a nightmare to edit long ones.

I've been using Flashback Pro 5, since I bought it two years ago. But haven't used it much.
Has anyone used Bandicam and Flashback enough to make a comparison?

Sorry not familiar with them, I use DaVinci Resolve and its free with tons of tutorials on YouTube.  And for screen capture OBS works nice with DaVinci.  There is a learning curb to this program... but once you get into it your hooked.

I use OBS and it works great, with a Steam deck to change views etc.

Tons of people have asked me this. I plan to make a video about how I make videos. Stay tuned.

Will it be an instructional video (like your Access videos) or just a vlog type video showing just your basic routine of making a video?

Hi Thomas

I use Bandicam, Faststone Capture Open Shot Video Editor as well as Camtasia. All are different levels and different prices.

Thanks all. As I said, I bought Flashback, so I'm giving it a try. It seems a bit weak on the editing features and the interface for starting and editing is a bit twitchy, often hangs, starts recording with a blank webcam (light on but no image), etc.

If I can't get it to work any better, with more experience, I'll start looking at the others.

I just made a video, I'm not very happy with it. Using PowerPoint was okay, but the images put into PowerPoint and then recorded came out pretty fuzzy. It might be better to use live recording from the screen, but then it will be bouncing back and forth between screens, which I often find distracting in videos I've watched.

Has anyone got some pointers? This is the first time I've posted to YouTube.

Hi Thomas, your YouTube video has only 480p resolution.  You need to record your video at 1080p or more to make the image sharp.  Whatever resolution you use for your everyday work (which nowadays is 1920x1080 or above), that is the resolution your recording should be at.

Thanks Kevin, I'll double check all the various settings, there are some for recording and exporting.

I record in 720p
Thomas Gonder

@ Kevin Yes it was the export. The program only provides sliders, and the pixels don't seem to match 1080p (or any others) probably because of the height/width of the window I used to record PowerPoint didn't match a standard h/w ratio.

@ Others I'm just taking my baby steps with YouTube. According to YouTube I can't overwrite a video. It says all you can do is delete and reupload. Kind of a pain in that you have to fill in all the meta data again and the previous link no longer works.

To overcome this problem, here is a link to the channel: https://www.youtube.com/@adbs_ads

Thomas yes baby steps best of luck with youtube.  Cant eat the fruit the day you plant the seed.   So do the best and make some greate videos.

@ Juan I suspected it was going to be a pain. Confirmed! I spent an hour trying to get timestamps to work, as suggested in many videos on the topic. After two hours I found an obscure blog that said if you don't have 1,000 subscribers, then timestamps don't work. THANKS GOOGLE!!! AGGGHHHH!

You don't need 1k subs to make chapters, but sometimes YouTube is glitchy.  Make sure the first time stamp is 0:00.  Put all chapters' times and descriptions somewhere in the video description.  E.g.:

0:00 Intro
2:20 Form design
10:50 Queries
15:32 Modules

It can also take a little while. They have to process your video first before timestamps, chapters, and subtitles are available. Can take an hour or two.
Thomas Gonder

@ Kevin & Richard I think I did it right. The times turned blue in the description. Maybe there's a problem in my cache or browser. Can either of you take a moment to see it the timestamps show when you play the video please? Look in the description and then see if it's in the video itself? Thanks. You'll save me another hour of Google Madness Syndrome. The link is  https://www.youtube.com/@adbs_ads

I just did some testing, and it does seem like you need to have enough subscribers for that to work.  I have a channel with 48 subs and chapters won't show.  I have another channel with about 200 subs, and chapters show right away (chapter markers on time line, and chapter thumbnails in the video description).  But you definitely don't need 1k subs as those online guides suggest.  I remember I first saw chapters when I had about 100 subs.  So maybe the requirement is between 50 and 100 subs.

Oh yeah, I keep forgetting about the minimum number of subscribers, which is silly because one of the better ways to get more subscribers is to have better features on your channel. So, it's a catch-22, I guess.

@ Richard  I found the University of Michigan site explaining to students how to send videos to YouTube, so that professors could review their work WITH TIMELINES. Maybe Google changed things, but would it make much sense to have students add timelines for a professor, if the student isn't likely to have more than a few friends as subscribers to their school homework? Brilliant Google!
