Video: Summer 2007 - Warning

More playing and understanding the program, VS10+ in my case. Stock filters and stock SmartSounds for music.

If you live in parts of Illinois, Wisconsin and Michigan, there're coming and there is nothing you can do to stop the noise, sex and death this summer!

That's a good job..:) Did you do the titles in PI? Also I noticed it was a SWF file, just curious on what app you used to convert the video to SWF? It done a great job in maintaining the quality..

Thanks. Titles were done in VS10+. Just used a goofy free font I found for this project. It's that font that caused all the problems getting to the Web and staying readable. Because of the fast motion and filters, I had to keep the bit rate higher. I came up with a custom setting within VS10 for the conversion.

I really wanted to do everything in VS10 just to show off what it can do in the hands of a newbe like me. The only other software used was Goldwave to re-record the bug sound and then fade it in and back out.

The I used Snosh (http://www.snosh.net/) to convert. I found Snosh when I did a image show in 16:9 and had a problem finding a converter that would maintain that format. Snosh is highly configurable on the output allowing me to maintain the high bit rate and size. The free down load and 15 times trial sold me on it. There may be others, but this works well for me.

The only problem is no matter what I did, trying to go to Veoh or YouTube, was a total disaster. They really do a number on the uploads and it was unreadable. I guess I could try the full MPG at 85 Mb but it's not worth it.

Black Lab has provided us with an alternative upload site.

Perhaps that will give you more flexibility. Haven't yet had chance to try it myself.

I like the way youve framed it inside a TV set!
The video appears crystal clear and those titles are very nice.

First, thank you the comments. Yes, I tried Veoh a few times with a few different type of files with higher bit rates. All looked very poor when they were ready for viewing so I removed them. It's that bloated font and fast camera movement that Veoh's compression really killed.

At least using my own servers I can maintain the file just the way I want.

The TV image is one of many that come with Snosh allowing for auto start or VCR type controls.

I have tried and failed miserably at setting up my own server due to the wireless network I have. Some sort of built in firewall prevents anyone seeing past the router.

Well done on this and your other sample videos, I look forward to your next masterpiece. I particularly liked your sample 'popcorn' - synchronising to the beat.

My company does Web hosting and I have dedicated high speed servers in a Vancouver data center. So I have the space to put up a few videos with the compression I feel is proper and not relay on YouTube or anyone else.

Yes, Popcorn was a challenge but a learning experience.
