Common Filming Techniques
You want to catch some ambient sound at your location so you can “fill in the gaps” when you edit your audio later
Letting the camera run for a few seconds before and after the action will give you some “wriggle room” in the editing bay
If you are capturing your audio separately from your video, make sure there is a way to “synch” it on the audio recording and the video recording
It is never fair use to use something you’ve found online in your productions
Pretty much everything online is copyrighted by someone
You need license agreements to use copyrighted material
Infringement brings huge penalties for those that are sued
If you find a bug or need a new feature, contact Adobe at the address given in the video
They DO read all submissions!
Both platforms’ requirements are listed on the Adobe website
