Video recordings

Before you record

iPhone users, ensure you’re filming at a high resolution.

  • Settings – Camera – Record Video – 1080p HD at 30fps
  • If you have the option, choose 4k at 30fps *remember to change this if you don’t want video files to take up all your phone memory

Settings – Camera – Formats – Most Compatible

Recording video

Film horizontally!

Be aware of your background, make sure it’s not distracting (doesn’t mean it has to be a plain wall)

  • Avoid people walking into your video frame
  • Avoid a large window behind you

Don’t hold your phone too far away from you – the audio will not be as good

Sending video

Video should be sent using OneDrive.

  1. Log in to OneDrive using your Gettysburg email address and Gettysburg email/network password.
  2. Go to Upload → Files and choose the file to upload it.
  3. Right click on the file and select Share.
  4. Change “Anyone with the link can edit” to “Specific people” and uncheck “Allow editing” then click Apply
  5. Type the email username of the person you are sending it to, then select their name.
  6. Click Send.

OneDrive will then send that person a link to that will enable them to download the file.

Avoid sending videos through email or text messages as it downgrade the quality of the video.
