I help run a University club in the uk. We are getting a digital video camera soon. Was hoping for some advice on how to get some decent footage of riders - and then how to turn this into a vid. We have access to pc's etc. Also wondered how you put music over footage etc. I ve seen some cool stuff on here and wondered how you guys do it?

A really simple and easy program to use is Window Movie Maker 2 (

If you have time to learn a more complex editing program and can acquire a copy, check out Adobe Premiere 6.5 for windows or Final Cut (or Final Cut Pro) for the Mac.

Some tip on taking the video:
1) Record only the action! People often record a rider's entire session keeping the tape rolling the whole time. Fight the urge! You'll end up wasting 15 minutes of tape, only to use 2 minutes worth in your final edit.

2) Start, stop, start, stop, start, stopů. Press the record button when you see the rider start their outside cut. Now stop recording 2 -3 seconds after they land.

When it's time to compress your video check out my post on

Try to refrain from watching what you just shot. It makes the chances of getting timecode breaks high which can lead to lotss of headache when inputing
