EPIC VIDDING TUTORIAL FOR THE VIDDING CHALLENGED

ALL UR WHINING ARE BELONG TO ME.

This post is for anyone who is thinking the following:

HALP!
I AM POUTING I CAN'T DO THIS
OMG NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
SON OF A BITCH
http://nooooooooooooooo.com/
PAAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. NEXT CHALLENGE PLS.
I ALSO DO NOT HAVE THE SKILLS.

This tutorial is not going to help you become an A+ Award Winning Vidder. It does not discuss "good" vidding as far as aesthetics, music choice, clip choice, effects, titles, themes, talking heads, and all these other things that are perfectly valid discussions. What it will do is get you out of this challenge with your 35 points and hopefully at least a modicum of your sanity still intact.

First, you need a program to vid with. The most popular suggestion for freeware is probably Windows Movie Maker, but that thing is a fickle bitch, so my suggestion is Windows Live Movie Maker. Slightly different, but seems to crash waaaaaaaaaaayyy less, yay. I suggest downloading it even if you have WMM on your comp already.

Windows Live Movie Maker download page on download.com.




Click the big green button to dl the program.


You'll have a bunch of other programs checked to be installed, but you only need Movie Maker, so you can uncheck everything else.


Downloading... downloading... downloading...


Uncheck all this stuff, then click continue.


All done! Close.

Open the program. It looks like this:


In the upper left corner you have a menu of a bunch of stuff. You can play around with it if you're so inclined, but if you're just thinking OMG GET IN GET OUT then just follow along with me.

Click the "Add Videos" button here:


Find your episode and open it:


I'm using BSG cause that's what I have on this comp at the moment.

Now your episode is in the program and you can preview it by using the slider and the buttons.


But you don't want the whole ep in your video, so click the edit tab:


Then click the Trim Tool:


Find the piece of the episode you want to use by using the slider and the buttons below the preview window. Once you find the start of the piece you want, click the "set start point" button in the menu at the top left. Then find the end of the piece you want and click "set end point." Now click the "save trim" button.


Now the episode has been reduced to just the small clip you want. Do this several times and you've got your video starting to take shape.


You'll need to click on each clip and then click the "video volume" button to mute the clip. You can do several at once if you click the first one, hold down shift, then click the last one, and then go to the "video volume" button.


At some point, probably early in the process, you'll want to click the "add music" button and find your music. You may want to do this first, or just after adding the first clip, if you're going to be picky about what clips are set over what lyric, but if you're just thinking OMG GET IN GET OUT then you can probably do it whenever.


After you put in the music, it will sit above your clips, and you'll have some extra options to play with if you want.


When you have all your clips (at least 15) and music layed out the way you want, click on the little blue button at the top left corner, then hover over "publish movie," then click on "Publish on YouTube."


Sign in or sign up, fill out the info, then click "publish".


Publishing... publishing... publishing...


YAY YOU'RE DONE!!


P.S. If you don't have a YT acct and don't want to get one, another option is to go to "Save Movie" then "for portable device or moble phone".


YAY YOU'RE DONE!!


I have Seasons 1, 2, 4, and 5 of Alias uploaded. I've linked 1 and 2 below. 4 and 5 are a little out of order, so I'll do some organizing and then link those here too. I can work on Season 3 if someone wants it, but it'll probably take a week or so to get it all uploaded.
