Creating YouTube Videos Using ITunes Visualizer


Hello People. In this lens i am going to explain how you can upload your favourites songs to YouTube and have the music play along to the amazing visuals that are produce by iTunes visualizer.

The Software you will need to achieve this:


A Screen Capture Programme

A Video Editing Programme

What Is iTunes Visualizer

Music visualization, a feature found in electronic music visualizers and media player software, generates animated imagery based on a piece of music. The imagery is usually generated and rendered in real time and synchronized with the music as it is played.

Visualization techniques range from simple ones (e.g., a simulation of an oscilloscope display) to elaborate ones, which often include a plurality of composited effects. The changes in the music's loudness and frequency spectrum are among the properties used as input to the visualization.

Apple iTunes comes with it's own built in free visualizer and can be found by going to 'View' from the menu bar and then selecting 'Show Visualizer'.

Controlling iTunes Visualizer With Keyboard Shortcuts
