Imagine how fascinating it is when you see your own video or photos as background while singing your favorite music. Or you sing it during any special occasion where your friends and visitors can see it. Have you experienced how fun it is? Well, I will give you the basic steps in making a video karaoke It is a tedious work but it is fun when you do it. For those who are willing to do it, here is the basic steps:
1. Prepare your favorites song or music. There are two files associated with this, one with vocal, the other one is non-vocal. There are many software application for free that will remove the vocal of the song. I found lot of free software that will be used to remove the music's vocal like Wavosaur, KaraokeAnyghing and Winamp Plugin: AnalogX Vocal Remover.
2. Prepare your background videos/photos
3. Open your video editing software.
4. Plot your favorites music and videos to your editing software. Every video editing software is capable of making vide karaoke. PowerDirector, Premiere, Pinnacle, Sony Vegas and others. There are also other software specific on this purpose like AV Video Karaoke Maker, Video Karaoke Studio 2, Karaoke Video Creator and Karaoke Builder Studio. Of all of these my favorite is Sony Vegas Pro 10. It's very easy to use.
5. Plot the lyrics.
6. Synchronize the lyrics to every words of the song. Each editing software has a different way to synchronize the lyrics. Synchronization means that once a certain word in sang, its equivalent words in lyrics is highlighted also.
7. For Vcd output render the file as mpeg1 format. For DVD output, render the file as mpeg2 format.
