In this video, learn how to get files from a camera onto a computer for editing.
- By now you've hopefully felt confident enough…to go out and actually shoot some video.…This means you've probably got loads of video clips…sitting around waiting to be turned into an actual project,…so let's talk about how you get that stuff…from your camera onto your computer.…So if you've been shooting on a DSLR like this,…it will have been recording onto one of these, an SD card.…Now, although you can plug most cameras directly…into the computer with a USB cable,…it's actually a lot easier and quicker…to take the SD card and plug that in directly.…If you've got a laptop,…you can probably plug it straight into the SD card slot.…
