Though both the Instructional Media Centers (IMC) North and South have tools for recording DVDs, the IMC North has a number of more advanced video editing resources available. Please keep in mind that powerful and versatile equipment offers more options - but also requires more time to learn how to operate.
The options available at the IMC North include:
- Non-Linear Digital Editing - If you need to modify a video beyond simply copying it, the IMC North and South have resources for this. Adobe Premiere Pro is installed on all graphic workstations. These computers also have Firewire cards to interface with digital camcorders and external hard drives. MiniDV decks are available in both labs.
Be prepared to invest some time in learning non-linear editing. These systems can edit a variety of video formats and enable you to create professional fades, cross-dissolves, superimposed titling, rolling credits, music, and sound effects with voiceovers.
To reserve any of these resources in advance, call 314-977-2919 and press 1 at the voice menu. For more information, contact the IT Service Desk at 314-977-4000 or visit the IT Service Desk page for a complete listing of service desk locations and contact information.
Manuals and online help are available. Though staff may be consulted for specific questions, in-depth training is not provided.
