What My New YouTube Channel is Teaching Me
This month (of March 2023) I’m re-launching my YouTube Channel to help coach creative folks who want to ship and share their Big Ideas to the world.
I wanted to test using my iPhone camera with my iPad as a monitor, so I did a “single-shot-multi-cut” shoot and edit.
- First, I setup my iPhone 14 Pro as the camera on a tripod.
- Then I plugged in my DJI wireless lav into the lighting port on the phone.
- Using the MoviePro Camera app as my recorder, I opened the MoviePro Remote app on my iPad 12 in to monitor.
- This helped me see myself moving around within in the frame.
- I Airdropped the movie to my iPad for the edit in Resolve.
Here’s the video….
How to Make iPhone Video With Phone as The Camera, iPad as Monitor With Edit in DaVinci Resolve
What I Learned Making This Quick Video
- Remember to playback and test the audio with headphones. There was a subtle rumble from a loose connection that I could not hear at first.
- I need to pause more between movements. It was hard to get a clean edit.
- My head is too high in some of the shots. I need to move back or move the camera, next time.
- More script practice is always good. This is not very tight delivery of content.
- The MoviePro iPhone app worked great with its companion Remote control app.
- DaVinci Resolve for iPad is powerful for video editing, but new users will need help. It’s not as intuitive as other iPad apps.
- My studio has too much echo. I need to make some sound treatment panels.
- I’m a dork. Oh well! At least I’m having fun.
My 1st Test Edit with DaVinci Resolve for iPad
This was my first quick edit in DaVinci Resolve for iPad.
I think I like it!
It was not super intuitive at first, but I think I’ll keep using it. Especially since I’m converting from Adobe Premiere Pro to Resolve as my main video editing software.
My edit was quick and dirty. Not perfect but fast and easy!
Are You Shipping Imperfect Work?
I hope so!
I find it’s a great way to grow fast and push your boundaries in meaningful ways.
