Learn DSLR Basics In A First-Person Video Game - CameraSim 3D

Learn DSLR Basics In A First-Person Video Game - CameraSim 3D | Arts Independent | Scoop.it

Photography newbie? CameraSim 3D teaches basics through first-person video gaming.

 

Thanks to the 3D game engine that the software is based upon, it can simulate not only all the basic DSLR functions including ISO, aperture, shutter speed, and exposure priority mode, but there will also be the option to use a tripod, change white balance, use exposure compensation, and turn the flash on and off. According to CameraSim’s website, the software, which is scheduled to appear in mid-2014, can accurately replicate ISO grain, depth-of-field blur, motion blur, and exposure based on the camera’s settings.

Jeremy Wilker's curator insight, May 28, 11:35 AM

watch the embeded video about the making of foley tracks - it is incredible! we did a bunch of foley on Death To Prom and at first I thought it was overkill, but it was absolutely necessary and added so much depth and polish.

Curate Your Own Video Channels and Mixtapes With DragOnTape

Curate Your Own Video Channels and Mixtapes With DragOnTape | Arts Independent | Scoop.it

Robin Good: DragOnTape is a great video curation tool designed for music fans who want to put together mixtapes to watch back on their mobiles, or that can be played at parties and events in a full-screen, back-to-back fashion.

 

DragOnTape which works both on the desktop and on your iPhone, allows you to easily search for any YouTube video / video mentioned on Twitter / Soundcloud clip and then to add it to your video-mixtape-collection.

 

You can drag and drop video clips on a timeline, move their order and position (albeit that's not always too easy), trim clips and make clips transition smoothly from one to the next with no breaks.

 

Obviously, just like I did in this test curated channel, you can bring any type of video content on any topic you like. These are 27 curated clips on content curation itself: http://www.dragontape.com/#!/4991003 ;

 

The playback interface is simply wonderful. Once you understand a few nuances it's impossible not to fall in love with it.

 

As I have said, the full compilation can be played back-to-back, while you have the option at all times to see the full playlist index and to jump to any clip you prefer. 

 

Once completed your video mixtape can be easily published to the DragOnTape portal, as well as embedded into any web site or blog or shared with a direct link.

 

P.S.: While this is a great video curation platform that can be used for any topic, the spontaneous community of curators on DragOnTape has developed a spectacular trove of curated music mixtapes with some truly golden gems in there. 


DragOnTape is free to use.

Excellent. 9/10

I tested vibop and it's a useful tool to make quick enrichments to your videos: It's a pity that the themes are only available for the iphone app and not for the web app integrated in youtube (as expected) .

Regarding intro, editing & effects functionalities, they're both in the iphone and web app.
