#edtechcca4 – assignment 4 tennis video

My tennis rally video. Edited with Windows Live Moviemaker. Sounds from freesound.org.

I’m used to editing with Adobe Premiere Pro, but decided to resort to Windows Live Moviemaker, so that I was using something that was more widely available and wasn’t a high-end (and expensive product). It was great for simple editing, but I found that having only one audio track was a severe limitation. I wanted to combine sounds, but it wasn’t possible. I felt really hamstrung by the software and the final result is nowhere near as good as it could have been – it really is a case of the right tools for the job. Despite this, Windows Live Moviemaker coped well with the different video formats used in the clip. It happily imported MOV files, MP4’s and AVI’s and didn’t complain. I do however have the K-Lite codec pack installed on my computer which means that it can generally play almost any video format, so maybe this helped.

Sounds from freesound.org:

  1. ‘Pop’ sound
  2. Smashing glass
