FAQ's Video Scrapbooking


1. Do I need any specific software to take the class.

NO. In the class we show and demonstrate various types of software that users may purchase. But since there are many formats of media to be covered, it is impossible to list all the various software programs and interface devices needed to convert films, slides, photos, video cassettes, DVD's and Smart Phone media to digital.

2. Does this class demonstrate computer video editing.

YES. Editing of video is discussed. A demonstration of video capture video cassettes to digital files is demonstrated. If individuals are interested in advanced video editing, they should enroll in the Videography, Video Editing class offered frequently at Gilruth Center.

3. Why should I take this class?

We live in a culture where we frequently record our life events with still and moving pictures. Technological advances have made it necessary that we archive not only the images and sounds from the legacy systems of the past, but from current digital systems so that they can be shared with family members as well as preserved for future generations. This class discusses the various video and film formats from the past and those used currently--and how to transfer them to new media.
