How to Find the Perfect Cooking Appliance to Prepare Your Meals


Everyone wants to have a nice kitchen in which you can enjoy cooking. Nevertheless, if the kitchen is not designed accordingly you may end up avoiding it instead. In order to keep your kitchen in check, you need to choose the appliances you put in it carefully. Many people end up purchasing a ton of kitchen appliances, big or small, and accessories which just take space and end up never being used. It is not the number of appliances you get, it’s about knowing how to utilize them. Not knowing how to use them may eventually lead in frustration.

Some people have the luxury of having both small and large ovens. Many times they don’t know which one to use when preparing food. It would be a smart choice to keep using the smaller one whenever possible, since it saves a lot of energy and cuts down on electricity costs.

Using Alternative Cooking Appliances

Sometimes it might be a good idea to use other cooking appliances instead of the oven. Doing so can save you time and effort when preparing a meal. Getting the best pressure cooker, microwave, grill or toaster for your budget are all great alternatives.

Cooking Takes Time

You need to be aware of the importance of time. Cooking can sometimes take a lot of time, sometimes a bit less. Also you need to know the necessary temperature required for every different type of meal. You should follow the recipes carefully and set the proper temperature and time duration in order to avoid checking whether the meal is done more often than not. Furthermore, when using alternative cooking appliances you should know that every time you open the lid, the device has to work harder to regain the set temperature.

Next-Gen Options for Storing, Editing and Watching Your Videos

If digital technology has done anything, it has increased our options. Many of us can remember the Dark Age of television, when there were only a dozen stations showing lousy programs. Now, we bask in the Glorious Future of satellite TV and digital cable, with hundreds of channels showing lousy programming. We can even get lousy programming on demand. Lucky us.

Video Editing

Loyal readers of Camcorder & Computer Video know all too well how digital technology has brought heretofore unimaginable options to video recording. Just skim the pages and behold the alphabet soup of formats, software titles, devices and technologies that are now at your fingertips, thanks to the digital revolution.

But, if digital bestowed its blessings to the recording and editing of video, it has been slower to transform the storing and viewing, which has largely remained store on the medium you recorded on in the first place, and view on a TV by connecting your camcorder to the set or, format permitting, dropping it into a VHS or DVD player.

In the age of ten thousand TV stations, this will not do. And, it won’t, for long. Here’s what the future of video will look like: shoot your video on any or every format imaginable. Import it into your desktop and, after making any necessary edits, leave it there. If you want to view on your computer monitor, using nothing more than a remote control, you can. If you want to view it on your TV in another room, you can, scrolling through your entire video collection right on screen with your remote. If you wisely wish to archive your video, you burn discs with the touch of a button, leaving a neat stack of discs to safeguard your treasured memories in the event your computer explodes, rather than an unwieldy library of poorly labeled discs that clog up shelf space.

Thanks to the maturation of computer and home networking technology, and the rapid proliferation of hard disk drives into devices like DVD players, the future is here.

Transitional Effects: Use These 15 Tips to Make Your Videos Flow


It’s been said that the real distinction between video that looks professional and video that’s obviously amateurish comes from the transitions. How you move from scene to scene and clip to clip, makes all the difference.

Choosing the proper transition and successfully executing it can often turn a disaster into a victory. Check out some of the following principles and experiment a bit. These tips should help you make the most of the transitions available in your editing program.

  1. Keep It Simple

Do you remember your first word processing or desktop publishing program? It probably came with an example of a letter created with too many different fonts compared to one done with just two (for example, one for text and one for headlines.) It’s the same with video transitions. Grabbing at a clock wipe here, a Venetian blind effect there, and a rotating box and zoom thrown in for good measure is guaranteed to give your video a jumbled look. Settling on just two or three types of transitions, such as dissolves and slides or fade-outs and fade-ins, plus slides or page turns, will give your presentation a more consistent form and a more pleasant look.

  1. Be Consistent

Use your transitions for specific purposes, and stick to those uses throughout your video. Examples might be using dissolves to denote time passage and slide-ins to denote location changes. Transitions have personalities, and the effects make statements. Try to make the same kind of statements with them from beginning to end.

  1. Experiment with Time and Length

Do some practicing. Take two scenes and dissolve or cross fade between them. Do it several times. Try a one-second dissolve. Then, do one for two seconds. Try a lingering five-second effect, then, maybe a real quickie at less than a second. Notice the feel or personality of the effects. Use them to enhance the look and feel of your final video. Do the same with a number of other effects.

  1. Check out The Variations of Each Effect

Most transitions can be stopped at any point in their cycle. That means a dissolve held half way would result in a superimposition. A circle in or out held still would give you a picture-in-picture. It’s the same with a box or square. Combine that with control of the box’s directional movement and you’ll have an over-the-shoulder box behind your narrator just like those used behind a network news anchor.

  1. Experiment with Abstraction

If you have Manual Focus on your camcorder, shoot some out-of-focus objects of different colors and luminosities. Or, take an existing scene and modify it with a filter effect. Try blending them with different transitions. Slow, lingering dissolves would be good for starters–perhaps multiple layers (see Step 7 below.) Then, place the final results under your titles. Try doing this with still photos or artwork as your source.
