Hello, thank you for allowing me to assist you with your question.
There's several different ways to go about this and I'm assuming you want the least costly way so I'll start there.
Depending on the type of video camera you have, it probably has a fairly decent built in microphone.
One way to accomplish this, is to play the instrumental in the room, while he sings along with it. This way, you won't have to try to match up his vocals to the music, which would be nearly impossible to do outside of a professional recording studio.
Another option is to use your video editing software to layer the audio, if your software allows more than one audio track. In other words, have the instrumental on track one, and his vocals on track 2. If your software allows this, you may be able to adjust the volume of each track, so his vocals blend in nicely (not too loud, not too quiet.) If you tell me what video editing software you have, I can tell you whether it has that capability or not, and how to do it.
So at this point I want to ask you, what type of camera do you have, and what video editing software do you have? We can take it from there.
hi let me read what you said just a secon
wow I think im already way in over my head, lol ~ ok let me start with this question: If I were to use my laptop, could have him wear headphones listening to the track (instrumental) and then have him singing into a mic? I want to start slow with that and let my hubs handle the video editing
thats my only question for now, then i'll accept
Yes, that would work.
Or, you could kill two birds with one stone and record the video and audio with the camera.
What kind of content will be in the video, him, or other pictures etc?
Now there is a third way if you really want the audio to be completely separate.
There is a free software audio recording program called audigy
this is our inserpation:
This would allow you multiple tracks.
of course they have high quality devices and we dont
we just want to make a simple video but with good quality, we dont quite want it to have that 'home video effect'
so we can do editing/etc
Oh gosh that's adorable :)
seems the main thing would be finding a way to layer/combine
The software does that.
I think im good, lol
I am very familiar with the editing software world, I have the entire Adobe Suite
I want to help! :)
you've jjust helped by talking to me
Do you have any tips/advice on the side?
If you have more questions, please come back and ask me,I can help.
for what I'm trying to do and then i'll accept
I do yes....
Film in natural light, try to film him outside
k great, anything else to remember?
I wish I knew what editing sofware you had, I could help you with knowing what you're capabilities are
hang on just a sec i'll look
I have a 10 year old son who plays cello and we've done Youtube Videos.
i think its 'videostudio'
Ulead VideoStudi probably, yes
that's a good program, easy to use
yeah i cannot do it at all my husband has used it once before
to make a video
What I would do...is extract the audio from the YouTube background you found. Want me to do it for you?
If you give me the youtube link to the video, I'll turn it into a sound file for you, an MP3 that you can pull into Video Studio as an Audio track
I love doing this stuff.
ok hang in here a few moments
Downloading in now, next it will take a couple of minutes to convert it.
k thanks wow =)
and then let me know how I can do it for in the future
This software lets you download videos from Youtube and then convert them into other formats, or extract just the sound:
wow thanks im so happy
No problem! :) How old is your nephew?
just like my son :)
he kinda looks like that kid (to give you an idea)
haha yeah I thought...welllllll if THAT kid could get famous you never know, lollll
its just for fun
YOu want to do everything you can at this age to encourage this kind of ability...who knows what else they can get involved in, lol
my nephew he raps and sings
YEAH I promote good grades the most, but he's adorable its just fun to see what you can do with opportunity
he's an honors student
so this is just for fun
I was just happy my son finally found "his niche". He learned cello then taught himself violin :)
My son is an honors student too, which makes HIM happy, we never pushed him on grades. My husband and I were horrible in school. But my son has Aspergers (autism spectrum) but is very high functioning.
This download is taking a long time...sorry :)
oh im cool im doing lots of other things at the same time =)
goood for your son! yeah school can be VERY difficult =)
Ahh good )
Especially 5th grade, it's been brutal. He went from having one teacher all day, to 7. They change teachers and rooms every hour .
I'm uploading the MP3 to a site where you can download it
