    So most of you probably clicked this thread to see the list but actually, this is more of a question. I noticed on our forum here we don't seem to have a beginner's guide.

    Every topic has probably been discussed but I've blown hours on reading and almost getting no where, so let's turn my thread here into something useful for newbies.

    - Which program do you guys recommend, yes Premiere Pro is the god! Sony Vegas seems to be favoured by so many though? Movie Maker is a no go! Final Cut are for the Apple lovers.

    - 30fps vs. 60fps / Seems to me like this is camera dependant, some apparently just replicated the additional 30 frames? so it depends on your action cam.

    - Rendering settings for YouTube?

    - What tips can you provide in terms of content?

    - How do you convince people to subscribe to your channel?

    - AdSense Tips?

    Yes, Sony Vegas is what I use, only because it is user friendly. But I hate it because it is poorly optimized and severely lacks features that are present in Premiere Pro, especially when I am editing more serious productions in my other channel dedicated to videography. But for regular vlogging it's fine.

    - 30fps vs. 60fps / Seems to me like this is camera dependant, some apparently just replicated the additional 30 frames? so it depends on your action cam.

    I shoot mostly 60fps for vlogs. For anything more cinematic like vanity shots and serious productions, 30fps is better. Lowering fps is the quickest method to getting a more vibrant picture at the cost of motion blur. This is because you are halving your shutter speed and doubling the time your shutter is open to obtain light with any given frame.

    - Rendering settings for YouTube?

    H264 rendering, MP4 container. Just use the same bitrate that your source file is at.

    - What tips can you provide in terms of content?

    The motorcycling portion is icing on the cake. Unless you're a serious racer who can actually give good lessons on riding, or an experienced mechanic who can give good maintenance or build tips, nobody actually watches you for good advice or solid opinions on motorcycling. Make your videos to entertain, inject personality to it, let them live out an interesting experience they can never get out of themselves, even if they ride. Be like their best friend.

    - How do you convince people to subscribe to your channel?

    Good content brings in subscribers.

    - AdSense Tips?

    Check the Google FAQ on this. Set it up, and then forget about it. It's a waste of time intensely watching your Adsense income.

    love my Sony Vegas Pro 13, but considering trying out final cut as many are using it... 30fps for night and 60fps for daytime. as far as content, youtube seems to love drama, rage and crashes, but advertisers dont anymore, there isnt a magic formula it seems.

    It's a great program, and easier to understand if you learn Premiere first just to understand the idea of setting keyframes.
    Also if you both you can do dynamic linking between the two programs.

    MSI GS70 Stealth - Ultrabook Laptop.

    Renders everything quite fine, no issues - As long as you run the major software on the Nvidia card.

    Start with Davinci Resolve (free) to learn workflow before paying for Premiere or Final Cut. If your PC is not an editing rig, use proxy files effectively (google proxy files) it will save your butt and your computer.

    - 30fps vs. 60fps / Seems to me like this is camera dependant, some apparently just replicated the additional 30 frames? so it depends on your action cam.
    60fps 1080p or 30fps 4k

    - Rendering settings for YouTube?
    1080p h.264 variable bitrate 20 max bitrate 25. Hardware and video quality are factors. Youtube is finicky so still playing with these.

    - What tips can you provide in terms of content?
    To each his own. There is an audience for all types of content. Mine is completely different than most.
    Just be forward with your ideas, and stick with them.

    - How do you convince people to subscribe to your channel?
    Stay engaged, respond to all the comments. Use multiple social media channels.
    I'm still new and focused on my branding and building my social channels. I don't believe there is a magic formula besides consistency.

    - AdSense Tips?
    None. You really have no say until you are considered an influencer. You need to first focus on audience engagement because without that retention you have no AdSense.
