How-To Make Good YouTube Videos

Hi folks, today I’m writing this guide to answer one of a community member’s question that I saw on the October’s Discord server.

They ask, “so I want to upgrade the video quality of my videos; does anyone know how”? I planned on replying to them on Discord but the explanation is a bit longer then I’d like to put into a chat message. So I’m writing this to help both them and anyone else who may be interested in getting started making high quality videos.

First off, good editing software is a good place to start. Something that lets you zoom in all the way down to mili-seconds to cut out any dead or empty space people get bored very quickly. I’ve used DaVinci Resolve which is free and has lots of free capabilities of most premium software being that it is a base version of a premium software. There are also other software editing tools such as Sony Vega Pro which I know other content creators use.

Secondly you want to have a good microphone audio is very important aspect of any video. If your microphone sounds a bit on the cheap sided and you can use tools such as voice meter banana or get a higher quality mic. I’ll leave links to some videos at the bottom of this blog so you can learn more about Voicemeeter Banana and DaVinci Resolve.

Third of all you want your videos to serve a purpose try to look for things that haven’t already been made or don’t have as many videos made for it. An example of this would be my WoWNav Guide series which shows players visually how to get from Point A to Point B. It’s something that is useful and not a lot of content creators have made so it’s not saturated on YouTube. Which leads me to my next point and final point.

Whatever videos you do make; make sure they’re unique and commonly valuable. Think of what it offers to the average viewer or the communities you’re a part of.

Bellow are the videos you’ll need to get started. If you enjoyed this blog post or found it informative please be sure to share it. You can also leave comments down below; thanks!

Tips for Starting a Guild

I’ve played the World of Warcraft for over ten years and in that time I’ve learned a lot about how things work. Today I’m going to be sharing with you what I do to make sure people are taken care of in my guild and people’s needs are met.

The most useful tool I’ve found so far is Google Docs. This can be used to manage raid rosters, and advanced guild member management. All you’ve got to do is setup the columns with the right names and drop in the data. However, these tools are entirely worthless if you don’t establish a channel of communication.

Communication is essential for anyone in any type of management position. A question I’d ask any guild I’d join is, ” is there good communication between those managing the guild “?

The answer to that question will tell you to proceed or not. It’s easy for people to step on each other’s toes if people don’t talk effectively and well. Also it’s important to try and save your notes for others in management to read.

This means opening up a notepad and taking notes during important discussions, translating your notes into something someone else can understand, and finally uploading those notes to a shared cloud storage. This can be a OneDrive folder with a link that is shared between those managing the guild.

If you do this then you can better understand the intent and motive of other individuals who you are running the guild with. This helps you understand if they’ve got the right mindset or if it’s something you’d rather not be a part of.

If you found this article useful or would like more advice feel free to email me zin@zinrockin.com and I will do my best to provide you with more details. This is fairly general and doesn’t go deeply into each thing mentioned here but that would be too lengthy for a post of this nature.
