Making A Video To Accompany Playback?

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to quickly make a video of the score scrolling past to accompany its playback?
I could painstakingly add print-screened pics at appropriate times, but I wonder if there are more elegant ways?


I use standard stuff: Sibelius 7, Windows Media Player 

Apologies if this has been asked before..

I've been thinking of writing out all the details of how to do this in a future blog post, but essentially it's that; you have to get still image files and manually align them to the sound in a video editor. The cheap way would be to record your screen while the notation software plays back the file, but that looks terrible IMHO. YT channels like gerubach and incipitisfy have to do it manually in a very labour intensive fashion.

you can use a screencapper like screenhunter to easily create a sequence of frames with the hotkey and custom window size combo. the syncing still takes quite a bit of work though. not sure if there's already a solutionto that.

That's how I do it too.  Make a pdf of my score, take screen shots, get them all into iPhoto saved as JPEGs.  Generate a wav file of the music, load that into iTunes, then open iMovie, drag all the slides and music together, and manually adjust the timing of the images.  

 

It's actually nice to be able to adjust the timing by hand, as someone reading along may need more or less time to read ahead on the "page turns" depending on how tricky the score is at that moment.  Takes forever though...  

 

Okay, programmers, here's a problem looking for a solution...  (:

Wow! This is great to know. I've been wondering how to do this myself, it makes perfect sense. 

 

BTW, I like Gillian Welch very much. I know her first two records by heart now, having played them so often on the guitar. I can't afford a banjo now but I'd like to get my hands on one. Have you dropped your thumb yet? ;)
