"A New Sniper" - Call of Duty Montage

Like I said, I was going to start messing around on Youtube uploading videos of my gameplay from Call of Duty; I've started. Eventually I'll start adding stuff like Madden gameplay, etc. But for now, I'll stick with Call of Duty as that's the community I'm most intrigued by regarding Youtube.

"A New Sniper" was my first ever attempt at video editing, and it started on Playstation 4's Share Factory. I liked what I had there, initially, and transferred the file over to my laptop, where I edited the transitions a bit using Windows Live Movie Maker, and Sony Vegas Pro 13.0. When I was rendering the final product in Vegas Pro, I was really happy with what I had and thought it was an incredible project (for a starter), so I uploaded it to Youtube, and this is what I had:


As you can see, it looks relatively clean, but the transitions ran too long, and they drowned out the end of the previous clip, where I had initially cut one second after a kill... so too often in my clips, there were kills that just did not show up.

I decided I would just add commentary to a clean version of the video, taking out all of the transitions and just sticking to the clips themselves until I learn how to properly handle transitions. I love my Beats Studio headphones, they're amazing for gaming... but there's a mic installed on one of the stock wires for the headphones and it really is not the best equipment ever. Needless to say, there's still a lot to not like about video editing after attempt 1.5, but I think I have at least a decent presence and some fun clips for those into the Call of Duty online sniping community. Here is the commentary video:


If you can, please head over to my channel and leave a like on the videos and subscribe. Thank you, and don't laugh, people.
