    YouTube Help Switching Editing Software

    Had my M1 iMac for a couple of months now and as I bought through the educational offer, I added the pro software bundle that included Final Cut Pro X. Up until then I had been using Filmora X, which is super easy to use and to be fair has been improving very quickly with new add ons/versions...

    Gear Opinion Best Video Capture Card

    I can only speak for the Sony one, which works really well. The A6400 can get quite warm, but did a 90 minute lesson for a school last week using it as a webcam and it stayed cool :)

    Gear Opinion Best Video Capture Card

    I also bought one of the cheap ones off Amazon, it runs a bit hot but works fine. However, why do you need it? Mine was just to connect my Sony A6400 to my Mac, but in the last couple of months Sony have released software allowing direct connection bypassing the card. I know that Cannon...

    Video Research Experience with YT Shorts

    In a word, YES. They are fun to do and reach a much wider audience. My channel is only 9 months old in an ultra competitive niche but shorts have helped with one getting 13k views, which for me is good

    Thumbnail Feedback My New Thumbnail Came Out Great.

    My thoughts..... The text would stand out more if it was more of a contrast to the background. Love the expression. Good luck with it.

    Gear Advice Going to Build a PC for Editing - Need Component Advice

    Thank you, a very useful post for me. I think the flexibility of a PC will in the long run serve me better. I just guess I will need to be patient on the GPU front. However as I do little 4k work and special effects, I am wondering should I build my PC and install a lesser GPU until a GTX3070...

    TubeBuddy Hello Again & #shorts

    I think that given your subscriber base, that strategy will work well for you, both for your subscribers and I guess ease of production. For us folk lower down the audience building hill, shorts are a great opportunity to be in front of a much bigger crowd, so any short must be attention...

    Need Advice How Do You Speak To The Camera?

    As others have said relax and be natural, there is no need to be perfect. The skill is to let your personality shine through. If you use a teleprompter, which for me on some of my complex teaching videos is necessary, that is a skill to try and be natural and spontaneous. I don't always get...

    YouTube Question what's everyone's biggest headache on Youtube?

    It's the switch from a physical classroom to YouTube. I am constantly trying different delivery techniques but testing them on YT is such an inexact science that judging the results is virtually impossible with such a small exposure. But hey, it is for the most part fun trying, so I think the...

    Life Christmas Plans

    For me, with my Christian beliefs, the highlight of Christmas has always been Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve. That will not change although it will be a little weird this year without carols. To get our family together we have organised two events respecting current rules, but they can all...

    Gear Advice Best inexpensive Lighting?

    My set up for my 1 to 1 teaching videos (lighting requirements will change with the type of video you shoot) is a Neewer ring lite and two 660 LED Panels. The ring light is great but the 660's are only OK because the plastic diffusers are not great. I am saving up for a monolight with a large...

    I empathise with this and it is what has put me off this strategy. However I realise that it makes sense 'to take the plunge', so, and this I appreciate will be a contentious Q on this platform, what is the best app to manage YT, Facebook & Insta?? ..... and how do you overcome the various...
