The Solvid head cam system makes it incredibly easy to get great Film It Yourself footage, easily and inexpensively with our video editing service. If you can hit record and perform the task at hand, you have Film It Yourself footage. To get the most out of your footage though, video editing services may be required. This can mean cutting the clip down to the 20 second kill shot or performing a total edit of a full length hunt from beginning to end. Below we will discuss editing software and video editing services.
The are a ton of editing programs on the market, and most will do what most beginners will need. Even the free / inexpensive software will suit most Solvid System users (Windows Movie: Free Video Editor and iMovie). For those who want more options for their videos, there are several inexpensive options that will give the ability to crop (zoom) the frame and highlight an area; both are used a ton. Vegas Movie Studio is $50 and will do all that most will ever need. If you end up needing more options in the future, you can then upgrade to what we use, Vegas Pro Edit ($400). While this is what we are using right now, for the most part, we could get by just fine with Vegas Movie Studio.
