Izzy Video tutorials make it easy to learn video.

Check out my newly updated Final Cut Pro X tutorial! The rest of this site contains more than 200 video tutorials on topics such as video lighting, audio for video, using a video camera, editing in Final Cut Pro, Final Cut Express, and more.

Moving a Camera

You can get some amazing shots by moving the camera when you’re shooting video.

That is… as long as it’s intentional. Accidental movement (shaky hands) tends not to look so awesome.

You have plenty of different options for moving the camera, and more are getting invented all the time.

This video briefly introduces several different ways to move a camera.

I hope you find it helpful!

Use Motion 5 to Create Animated Highlights on Text

When you’re including text in your video, you have a lot of options for how to show it.

This video demonstrates one technique you might want to try. It works well if you have a voiceover that’s reading from a letter. You can include the letter and then show an animated highlight over part of the text.

I use Motion 5 to demonstrate this technique.
