IGNIS Summer 2017 - Page 6

IGNIS Young Reporter me – every time I see a video using Windows Movie Maker, it is obvious from the very first title. It doesn’t have the timeline capabilities of soft ware like Corel, doesn’t have any special eff ects that don’t look cheesy and can basically do nothing other than put two or more videos together in a clunky way. Even though music isn’t a necessity, it makes a video so much more engaging and interesting. You don’t always have to pay for music – there are hundreds of sources of totally legal royalty-free music. Make sure you read the terms and the licenses though as you are firstly damaging these people’s small business and secondly, you could be breaking the law. The most common license is Creative Commons in its many forms, generally through attribution (giving credit) for free music. You don’t need to write a novel, just copy the provided text for video descriptions or state the name of the song, who composed it, the website name and the website address. Some may insist on a link to the song HERE IS AN EXAMPLE FROM MY REVIEW SHOW, MY ANGLE Embed video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJtbf5kyK7s 6 IGNIS
