Sony VegasSony Vegas 9.0 is the software we used to editour video. We found it very useful and we hadgreat success with it.We used thissoftware to editour whole filmand it was a veryuseful tool tohave. We havealso been able toimprove ourediting skills tomake our film astechnicallycorrect aspossible.
This is what we used toput the text on thescreen to show who theeditors, producers etcwere.
This is where we had to playwith the lighting so all theshots were the same and therewere no continuity errors.
This is where we edited allthe clips into one. It showshow we had to take morethan one shot to get thecorrect continuity.
Video CameraThe camera we used was a Samsung memory camcorder.We used a tripod to hold our camera in a position where it wasstable so we would get the most out of our filming.
