Looking for recommendations on software that will do motion tracking as seen in this clip.
My motorcycle hobbie took me in a very exciting direction last year. I started my own travelogue channel on youtube. The 4 videos are doing well considering I have no previous film making experience.
I am working on getting some better equipment this year and a camcorder is at the top of my list. I have tried to do some research but I am overwhelmed by all my choices.
Here is a list of what I have to work with:
No camcorder experience
$700 camcorder budget
Will purchase used
Will purchase from eBay
Using a Mac to edit
First of all, I'm sorry if this is waaaaaay too long-winded. I ask my viewers, and even other photography friends for constructive criticism and feedback, but all I ever get is "great job!" or "too long" while another person says "too short." So, I wanted to come here and talk to folks who really know what they're doing with video, and can (hopefully) add some advice. Please remember, I'm on a budget of $20. If I can't find it in my apartment, or build it for less than that, it's simply not an option at this time. :-( Thank you for even taking the time to look at this.
So I've got a client who is tying down a contract with my production company for their corporate conference where they will have 12 general sessions on a stage with a speaker and a power point presentation for each one. My company will be capturing all 12 of these sessions and everything is solid.
Simple stuff. We've done this for years now.
However, today I received an "oh by the way..." email from my client, all of a sudden asking me if it were possible to "stream a live feed of my camera to the projectors on either side of the stage".
Hi, if you could take a moment to check out our work and offer some advice, I'd be very grateful. We're beyond beginner, but have taken a real interest into making videos.
So any pointers, advice good or bad, would be great.
Thank you and all the best

I am a student filmmaker and I am about to purchase a new camera. I am debating between a DLSR (something like the Canon 7d) or a prosumer camcorder (like the Canon XA10.) My budget is around $2,000 or so.
I already have a digital camera (the Nikon d80, which is decent) so I am leaning towards a camcorder. I feel that since if I am trying to be a filmmaker and not a photographer a DSLR is not the right direction to go. However, a lot of my friends have and recommend them because they are versatile (in terms of lenses and whatnot.)
As one of the many Pro and Intermediate Gurus here in the forums, I've given tons of tips and advice to tons of Amateur and newbie videomakers. It's always cool to find an Amateur or Intermediate who has the chops to put out good info that even we pro's can find useful. Here's a vid by Dave Dugdale on 'How to Greenscreen with Adobe Premiere CS5'.
I will be filming some interviews this weekend which are personal recollections from the past.
Please could someone advise me the best way to light my subjects to create a less-corporate look and to create something more warmer without losing too much loss of light to help maintain video quality.
The equipment I have:
CANON XM2/GL2 CAMERA
2 X 40cmX60cm SOFTBOXES WITH (2x 125w 5400k ra>90 daylight bulbs)
I am totally new to camcorders. I
administrate a group called Guitar League http://guitarleague.com/ I want to buy a camcorder to accomplish the following:
Im looking for advice on the best way to write up a general proposal for potential clients, essentially making "cold calls".
I recently moved to a small town from a large city where I had 6 years of consistent work in video editing. Now I have all my own gear to do full-scale HD productions, but I am wondering the best way to get clients.
