Homemade HD video - 1

Long time I had a wish for working with videos. Film making was a great interest of mine. Well, I got to shoot a video for my father. He is a Yoga Guru. He already had a DVD released previously. But it wasn't up to the mark. I wanted to prepare better videos to let it be comparable to the international ones.

With my enthusiasm I got my father to do shoot for a video. It was a video of Surya Namaskar. I didn't have a high end DSLR camera. I only had a Nikon s3100 point & shoot. It had 720p HD video. But I wanted Full HD videos as it is the latest trend. But what to do. I have to shoot when I have to shoot. I shot with the Nikon. And this the result:

Back then I didn't have a tripod. My hands were shaky. Also the camera stopped recording sometimes without any reason. Moreover father was ill back then. Still I had a strong passion and it led me to finishing the project.

For editing I couldn't use Adobe Premiere. I have a Dual Core PC with only 2GB of RAM. Premiere just hangs now and then. Then I had to try with Blender. Blender is a 3D software but it has basic video editing capabilities. It took me almost 2 weeks to learn its functions. But eventually I got it working. I should say, that Blender is an execellent video editor that was more stable than Premiere. Although it may seem like a weird interface for first time user. But I used it before, so it felt like easy to me. If anyone wants to use it, it is Free and Open Source (FOSS) and can be downloaded from:

After seeing the video, my father understood the importance of a Full HD professional Camera. So he told me to do some research to point out the best camera suited for us. But it is another story to be told in the next post.
