Thanks for the pointers, Gemini! 😀
I am kind of shooting for the "RAW" thing that Mau1wurf is talking about. I do have a script, kinda, it's more of a bullet list so I'm not yammering about things in a crazy order, like I would do in real life. Honestly, try to have a conversation with my IRL, it can be quite hard to follow.
I talk slowly in real life too, so what you're hearing WRT speech speed is just me, no amount of planning would change that. The long pauses are also partially due to my weak edit-fu. I closed up the gaps as best I could, but iMovie isn't the best tool in the world.
Volume is an odd one, iMovie has controls to automatically reduce the music volume while speech is being played. ("Ducking" they call it), but perhaps I missed enabling it on one or two of the voice clips? Or perhaps when I normalised the clips it came out wonky... I'll need to watch it beginning-to-end again. I did so before I uploaded it, but it was pretty late. Thanks for mentioning it, by the way, if nobody mentions stuff like that, I can't fix it! 😀
Flicker, yeah, I figured an LCD would give better results. Medium-to-long term, I have a plan to buy one of those VGA capture cards like elianda has. But in the mean time, I've discovered that by twiddling with the camera's exposure settings, I can nearly eliminate flicker, so I'll be trying that out next time I need to record footage.
Honestly, I'm surprised my little vids have been received as well as they have. It's encouraging, thanks! 😀
