*Using a protractor, measure off 10 degree increments around
the outer edge of the Lazy Susan with a black marker. Since there are
360 degrees in a circle, you will end up with 36 marks.
- Set the object you will be viewing in the center of the Lazy
Susan. You may want to experiment with backgrounds of different
colors that highlight your object.
- Now set up the video camera on the tripod, with the camera
focused on the object that you will be shooting. Do not put a video
tape into the camera. Turn the camera ON. Make needed
adjustments to the camera or to the object so that the very best view
is seen of the object through the viewfinder of the camera.
- Using a standard RCAAV Coaxial Cable,connect the video
camera to your video "in" connectionon your computer.
