Transcription: Capturing Footage

Welcome back to This next lesson is on capturing footage.0000

So, these days capturing footage is far more easier than it used to be.0007

A lot of cameras are using SD cards, you know.0015

In the beginning we had to basically. I will give you a little show here.0020

Is that we would have to go to the log and capture window and we would capture video this way.0023

I am sure some people still use this process.0031

Here is how you can plug your FireWire cables in from your camera. Clip settings, capture settings.0034

You want to make sure you select the destination where you want the footage to go to.0042

Make sure that you have enough space.0046

Here is your scratch disk settings.0049

So, it seems like most cameras these days are using SD cards.0055

So, that is how you just capture footage the old school way.0061

So, these days most cameras work like this.0067

You pop in your SD card and then you go to your log and transfer window here.0071

And I have an SD card that I have just put in the computer now.0079

Let us wait for it. There is lot of footage on there.0084

And it takes a second. And you can see all the footage here.0090

So, this window is nice. It is very user friendly.0096

So, in here you can see the clips. You can scroll through.0101

You can actually edit the clip before you even capture it.0107

You can set in and out points here. Let us find something fun.0111

Here is some lonely swings so you can set in and out points using I and O.0122

And I could drag the clip into this drag media area.0134

So, once I drag the clip it automatically starts capturing.0140

And the clip appears. Here it is in my browser.0146

So I can do all this at once if I would like.0150

And I can do that. I can shrink down view here.0153

Here is all my clips. I can select all of them.0157

Command-A and just drag them directly into the media area here and it starts capturing.0162

But it is pretty versatile. You can actually name your clips here.0169

So, it is a very power tool. If you do not see your SD card you can actually find a path.0177

You can eject the card here.0184

Let us say you do not see that. You want to navigate to that.0186

Use that button there and you navigate to your drive.0189

Here is the Canon card I have and it opens it right up.0192

Another way you can create your own paths here. You can view this by list.0197

So, there you go. Thanks for watching

I will see you on the next lesson.0212
