Camera angles changed alot so thats always a plus. Cant exactly comment on the music(I'm more of a techno guy ). Black and white, thats different. But putting in the horizontal mombo wasn't exactly what I wanted to see. Please post a warning that theres gonna be sex in the video before you post.
Hey everybody! After some connection problems, I'm back online
I am still busy making a movie about a summercamp video, but I'm stuck, perhaps somebody can give me an advise.
Because of a camera problem, I don't have very much material to use, so I've got to use pictures, but what is a good way it put pictures in video's, without making it boring?
About the movie, there is a temporary one on my site, but in fact I'm only happy with the waterscène. It contains quite much errors, but first I want to know how I should build my movie.
So does somebody how to put pictures in the video on an intersting way?
You can see my crappy movie here: http://members.lycos.nl/bartes13/FieldOfVisions/en/fland_en.php
I've read through this thread and downloaded many of the movies. I really like the idea of sharing videos and the bouncing ideas off others.
I'm very new to editing home movies, and my first one is of my daughter walking (she's only 1 year old).
(right click on the link and go to save as... the file is 34.7MB, sorry it's so big)
I did this first video to help learn how to do it so I can do a "Montage" (if that's the right term or not) of her entire first year. I was going to take some of the best video from throughout the year (5 - 90 minutes tapes) and put it together to a musical collection or just put background music to it and allow the other audio to come through.
Has anybody done some videos like this, since I really don't know which is the best way? And I'm looking for some ideas to get started (I have a serious lack of imagination!)
No, seriously, I really am looking for honest opinions and possible ideas for future videos of my daughter.No really, I have no idea what I'm doing.
Are there any short video contests around where you could enter small 2-5 minute works?
By the way, I like your Abby Walking video abudguy. I have a 9 month old daughter and she is close to taking off across the room too. If you don't mind me asking, what is that song you play at the end during the credits? I should be able to place it but I just can't.
So does somebody how to put pictures in the video on an intersting way?You win some, and you lose some, and some get rained out...

Do you know of anywhere where people make home movies like that? I'm interested in getting ideas for my next compilation, but I can't find any good ways to mix a lot of 30sec clips of her first year, and maybe set it to music. Any help would be great!
abudguyNo really, I have no idea what I'm doing.

I promise I'll TRY not to make an idiot of myself in others in the future.
I did make a new video, I marched in a St.Patrick's day parade(boring) so I edited the entire hour of video and got it down to 15 minutes....still a bit boring even with all the techno and boxing. So I had another idea, I remember seeing in a music video or an advert. where they moved the pictures of a video along with the beat of the music.
So I did that along to timewalk99 by honeyworld(I know someone will ask me what the music was)

About the movie, I have to be honest, I absolutely disliked the pictures that came over the movie. They ruined the vision on the girl :P
To give the thing you want, a good command, I had to play the movie, because the first time I was only looking at the girl, but I managed it... You did a good job. Nice that heartbeat, the 'clabam'/the dropping sound is perhaps a little bit to early, perhaps it's nicer to put that sound at the same moment when the you see her from real close (the movie is now about a second too late). Nice choice of the music, a modern, little rough music style, it looks great. Another thing is the transation you've used, you used the same transition the whole time, which is a good thing.
A thing that you've to be carefull with is the text that's scrolling over. Because so much things are moving you've got be sure the text is vissible for a long time. Because you don't recognise the text as text immediatly. So if there is a lot movement, you have to make sure the text remains longer on the screen. Nice that www.spam.com that comes up shocking like the movie.
I think this movie is a great inspiration for other, at least for me, well done!

Before you start with a movie, you have to think about what you want with the movie. A higlight movie (long -> very short) on that way you just put some (in you situation) crashes behind each other, and skip identical actions. Or make a long movie, that one will be for you personal archive, becaue it's most of the times too long to show others "boring...". And here you made a combination of it.
In a higlight video you create fast movements, music switches, most of the times quite fast music. In the longer movies you use slow music, and from time to time a little fast movements, to stay awake (just kidding about that awake ).
Good luck with your movies and of cource your daughter.
Some of you have editing techniques down.
I won't comment on the video quality or content.
But a lot of you just posted dead links.
Most of you can pat yourself on the back.
Some of you need to be sure to not quit your day job.
(FYI: I can't post any of my work. Copyrighted stuff, all of it. Most is contract work or company work. And this wouldn't constitute portfolio usage. A shame too. I wanna show off too. )I'm not online anymore. Ask BALDRICK, LORDSMURF or SATSTORM for help. PM's are ignored.

I hope you give some comments about this movie, because it looks like I'm the only one who gives comments, but it's for everybody and by everybody. Noobs are welcome too, if you've seen a cinema-movie before, you can give comments too. So please everybody post your comments about others their movies, it helps all of us!
About the movie, from my website:
Summercamp 2002 in Finland
On my own I went to Finland in the summer of 2002, there I remained at a guestfamily. Each day I did some sportive activities with fifteen others from serveral countries. And my guestfamily told me things about the country, and showed the way they live.
In the second week, we (the foreigners) went to a camp, where we did some sportive activities again. In that week we learned to know each other, as well as yourself.
Two weeks seem to be short, but I've had a fantastic time there, thanks to a pleasant guestfamily, and a great guidance that stood up if it was necessary.
Watch it here: http://members.lycos.nl/fieldofvisions/FieldOfVisions/Finland2002.wmv
So please give all of us comments, and don't let me be the only with (and fonoop too of course )

About your video, it's quite cool that, shocking, and reversing, of the movie, also the fast camera movements made it interesting, combined with some color changes it's a nice video.
But you've to be aware of what you're doing. By changing the video that much, it will be a lot harder to follow. So I ask you, is this just a test video, or a sort registration of something. If it's a registration, I won't use the effect that much, because using the whole time makes it boring, because you can't really follow it, and you can't see what's actually happening. But in a situation as the bus, it's good! Everybody - or at least almost everybody - know how a bus looks like from the inside, so there you can use the effect. But for the rest...use this effect, but not this much, as you did during the whole video.
Also there are some black scenes, around 1.08 there it's absolutely too dark, those movements in the dark can be interesting, but the lights have to be stronger (like leds in the dark, like those sticks people use in discos and ..).
But I think it's just a test movie, to try some effects. So I just want to say, be careful with the shocking effect, and try to make the movements a little more brighter. But I'm interested in a next movie, where you the things in a 'normal' movie.
And what about my movie?
Finland 2002 video:
Great transitions in the beginning between the pictures (how'd you make that green glow?) and overall good effect with the music...very dramatic. And then the title...music seem to cut off a little abruptly, maybe let the voice echo a little more so the transition isn't so harsh between scenes. Or just stick in a synth explosion or something after the music stops from fruity loops if you have it. Very serene water/lake scene...and the music seems to match it nicely. I can see what you mean by mixing effects in the next one, still pictures with moving video. Text effects look cool, but I can’t read them, this still adds a little to the overall effect so you don’t get bored. End transition is good, but I think it slows down from the epic mood you set in the beginning. Overall OK!
It was kind of a test of sorts, but by using more than one effect you loose the pace of the music, so I had to keep to the same effect the whole time. But I can see how I could have faded out the music and gone to live action and then back to the effect, that might have made it better, but it was my first attempt at an effect like this…so it was a just test. It might be used in a “normal” video in the future along with various other ones. Thanks for the input.
I know the the music cuts of too abruptly, I'll work on it in a couple of days, thanx for the suggestion of the echo, I think it's te best think in this situation.
About the text, I know it's impossible to read for you, because it was compressed real heavy, and in such way, I lost the contrast between de colors, but I can asure you, it's not the same in the orginal movie But you didn't miss much, because the texts are just the names of the participants. And yeah, about the mood, you're absolutely right, it's not the same, too bad, but this movie already took a little bit too much time, so...I know what I've to think of the next time. Thank you!
Bye the way, have you ever been in Holland before? My next movie is a highlight video of around 5 minutes, about 'my' wet country. Again with some trance music
Here's a link to my movie, kinda funny and wierd. Hope you can get through my accent!
