The Purdue University North Central Office of Graduate and Extended Learning and Department of Communication will offer a non-credit Advanced Video Editing Topics workshop on Saturdays from Nov. 1, through Nov. 8 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day.
Participants will learn to use settings, filters and special effects found in Sony Vegas video editing software, covering topics such as multiple line editing and stacking, color adjustment, audio and visual envelopes and other features found in most package editing software. They will gain a better understanding of how the software works and of special enhancements and adjustments that can be added to a video to correct problems and create art. This workshop will be taught by PNC Associate Professor of Communication Dr. Jeff Shires.
The registration is $139 per person. Special rates are available for PNC students, alumni and employees. The deadline to register is Oct. 28, at 4 p.m. CT.
PNC will provide the video equipment and software needed to engage in this hands-on program; however Shires recommends participants also bring the devices they intend use to capture video footage after the program ends so that he can teach how to maximize their capabilities as well. Such personal video equipment might include camcorders, smartphones, camera phones, flip cameras and more.
