Whether it is about capturing or editing footage, there are a lot of tools involved. I use this site not only as a manual and reminder for myself, I hope to inspire others in playing around with these tools.
For all the tools below, there is one crucial requirement: have a decent pc with a decent graphics card (GPU). In my case, I work with an Intel i7 CPU with an NVidea GTX 1060 (6GB) Graphics card. It has saved me hours of rendering/transcoding time!
