How to make tennis highlight videos?

I have a YouTube channel set up called DownTheLineHD. I want to put the channel to good use and make tennis highlights of ATP events outside the Slams. I only have the use of iMovie at my disposal as the likes of Adobe After Effects and Final Cut Pro are a little out of my range at the moment. How do YouTubers such as Federerkoora, TheTennisMasters, Rsosa92 etc. make their highlights, and can anyone give me any tips on how to keep it with a consistent flow so its a good watch? Thanks.

Re: How to make tennis highlight videos?

First you need the actual complete match. If you want to be the first to do it, you need to be able to capture the match on your computer, rather than downloading an already existing one via a torrent or some other way. Typically hardware (not cheap) is needed to get it in HD (for example, this: http://www.amazon.com/AVERMEDIA-AVER...dp/B004VEKS76/). Once you have the raw file of the match, you can use any sort of video editing software (for example, AVS Video Editor) to edit it down to the aces, winners, and interesting points. That part is probably pretty tedious. Then just make sure you output the final product in at least 720p in order for YouTube to consider it HD. I'm extremely grateful for everyone who makes those highlights videos. A lot of work must go into them.

2020, actually. but you've just used two, so... see you in 2027 (with an absolutely epic highlights video no doubt)

| Wins over 3+ of the Top 4. Players to reach all slam QFs+ in history. Hawkeye/Line Calls. QFs+ at Slams & Masters, but never Top 20.

Use Sony Vegas, Premiere Pro, Avid, or Final Cut Pro heck even Windows Movie Maker or iMovie would do. Download the match and cut the best parts together.

I made one highlight video, but I prefer to cap the full matches and upload them to torrent sites.

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.

Re: How to make tennis highlight videos?

I only ever made one video, many moons ago when I was a jobless uni student, with Windows Movie maker.

Limits at the time meant quality of vid got a beating in order to get it up onto youtube - I'm sure they've upped those limits considerably so it might be worth me digging out the full res vid and uploading the better version.

Windows movie maker did the trick just fine, but if I was ever to make another, I don't think I'd be using it again

Re: How to make tennis highlight videos?

i'd also be a lurker

given the high quality tennis analysis and interesting player insights given by our fellow forum members, who wouldn't find it interesting to just sit back and learn a bit more about the game?

Re: How to make tennis highlight videos?

Very easy but time consuming to make a higlights reel.

You'd need to be able to also use fade in and fade out or other cross over type effects regularly. I wouldn't recommend it unless you are very patient and like long tedious work, which is what it would be.

Re: How to make tennis highlight videos?

Does anyone know how to solve this problem I have?

I'm trying to make tennis highlight videos yet windows live movie maker says "loading audio data" forever and then crashes.

If there's no solution, which seems to be scarce if there is one, are there any very similar free programmes that are easy to use without watermarks

Re: How to make tennis highlight videos?

What format is the footage you've got? Are you sure your application can read the format your looking at?

By the sounds of it, you really are new to this and need to start off with something much smaller.
