So I'm not totally up to date with the youtube art community and at the moment I'm still learning how to efficiently record, edit footage, and upload onto youtube. The last time I watched a youtube tutorial video was ages ago so if there's a faster/easier way to do this I would love to know.
For an example of what I make: https://youtu.be/aLt3MR8EhOc Anywho, this is my process:
1. I use OBS to record my footage. I draw on a desktop so I use OBS to record my screen.
2. I use After Effects to import and edit the footage
The way I do it is I import the videos and create compositions for each of the footage file where the only thing I edit is where I want that chunk to start and end. After that I make a composition called Total Footage where I highlight in order all the footage compositions and rightclick->create composition where it asks me to create a single sequenced composition with the selected ones.
3. I create a final composition where I add in the music and text.
I don't do anything fancy, I add the song and Time Remap the total footage composition to fit the length of the song and also add a fade out at the end of the footage using the Opacity properties of the footage composition. The last thing I do is add a string of text at the end of the video saying thanks and do the same thing as the last step to fade it in using the opacity property.
4. I drag the final composition to the render queue and export the video as a quicktime file.
After setting the export to these settings and set the export file and location I click on render.
5. Upload that file on youtube. These are the last steps, add credit to the music, thumbnail, description.
So that's my process and like I said this could be the most cumbersome way to go about it. But it's the way I've kinda fumbled my way into doing it.
What about you youtube peeps, how do you all do it?
