How to record a Webcam video with FCPX (how to start a vlog)

Just about everyone knows what a vlog is these days. If you’re not familiar with the term, vlog is short for video blog, and it’s a simple way to share your personal thoughts, experiences, or share your expertise with your online audience.

Even a basic video with great information can help you build your brand, generate leads for your business, or increase the time spent on your site.

I’ve seen my fair share of vlogs, especially on YouTube, and while some are creative and entertaining, others are down right horrible.

There are basic things that you can to do that will make a huge difference in the quality of your vlog. Audio, lighting, and Webcam placement are just a few of the things that come to mind.

As more people get familiar with Final Cut Pro X, they may be interested in starting a vlog. If you’ve used iMovie, the process should be familiar, but if not, this short video should help.
