Merging videos / virtual ensembles
Can someone recommend software for iPhone or IPad for merging videos together? I’d like to record individual parts of an ensemble and put them together. Apologies if this has already been covered.
I don't recommend editing video on an iPad, unless you really have no other choice. I don't know what apps exist for Apple devices, but in your shoes I would download Sony Vegas from one of those Ukranian websites. It's very powerful software, and you may as well learn it now that video is becoming so important.
Not sure if this would work but there is a free trial available for Media Composer by Avid Technology.
FYI, I found the Acapella app to be very adequate for what I’m trying to do.
Here’s a video I recorded with Acapella. It works really well. If you want to play around with it, make sure to use wired headphones or earbuds. Wireless ones will introduce a slight delay and throw off the timing.
Smiley -- Nice job! With Acapella, do you record one part, then listen to the playback while recording subsequent parts?
Somewhere there was an explanatory video from the San Antonio Symphony about their Mahler 2 (which is still on YouTube). If that can be found, it might have the right information.
Hi Gene, sorry for the delayed response. I just used my iPhone for everything (audio and video). The only additional equipment I used is a tripod stand that holds the iPhone in place; easier than trying to lean it against books or balance the phone on a table. There are quite a few phone stands you can order from Amazon.
And yes, with Acapella, you record one part at a time and as you record each subsequent part, you can hear all the previous parts so you do get the ensemble experience.
Smiley -- Thanks for your response! I used my iphone to record as well. So, the only other variables are the room acoustics, the violin and the violinist. Lol
Hi Gene, the violinist is fine. If you have any issues, change the violin or acoustics :-)
