MAKING PORN, AND KEEPING IT FREE!!!

BEYOND WINDOWS MOVIE MAKER.


Google is your friend for going beyond WMM and staying with free software. You can still create even on a budget. You can even get two Serenity's! 

I've been asked a few times by other producers and interested parties on the SL Porn scene, how can i green screen, or make special effects for free? Or is there any free editing software other than Windows Movie Maker? Lot's of the best directors on our scene use expensive software titles, such as Adobe suites including Adobe Premiere and After Effects, or Sony Vegas.

The price of some software is unbelievably high. Many online take an illegal route to obtain software. But, i have found legal, free software which will allow you to produce a special effects laden blockbuster movie! Or just have fun with some creative test scenes or images.

The short answer to where you can find this free software is, "Google is your friend!" I'm far too nice, and far too inquisitive to say that, so i looked myself. A brief Google later i came across some pretty good software. So I'll add to that some free software i already know about. And try and steer you in the right direction.

VideoPad - Video Editing For Free.

Even if you use, and are quite happy with Windows Movie Maker, I'd suggest getting this free award winning software. It is professionally laid out, user friendly, and offers nice transitions, dissolves, fades, and special effects which may offer some more variety for you beyond WMM. Being totally free there is no reason at all why you should not grab it.

If you are at all familiar with video editor's, or have used Windows Movie Maker, you should pick up how to use this software in minutes. It also has a very easy text / subtitle editor. An easy to use "Narrator" option too. Which you can play the video track as you record your voice narration.

I found VideoPad very stable, and much better to use than many software titles you have to pay for. When installing you are also given the option to grab a "Wav file editor" and a slide show maker for free also, i never tried these, but they could enhance your movie making further.

DebugMode WAX - Green Screening For Free.

When asked about green screening, i could only say to people, i use Adobe After Effects, or Sony Vegas. They often go and Google and come back with a "OMG!!! That's $600!!!".

So, i was interested to search, download, and experiment with a free software that let's you among many other cool things, green screen, and compose a video clip from Second Life shot against a bright green wall or inside a green box.

Here you can see me, playing with myself, quite literally! The sky is the limit when you can add green screen sequences into your movies.

Am i in trouble with the porn actress union? Casting myself with myself? But it demonstrates the diversity of green screening, and also special effects. They can play a role beyond just producing a sci fi spectacular, they can enhance every day mainstream porn. without costing you any money, or dodgy downloading! hehe.

If you've never green screened, or are unsure how to use this software, here is a Youtube tutorial for this actual program.
