Hi everyone, well as some of you may be aware, i recently shot a Video at a local Car & Bike show where i live, and i have finally completed editing and sorted out the Music track, and i have now uploaded this into a new Youtube Channel.
This is the 15 minute Photo Slideshow video of the same event, with the same music.
Now that the videos are up and running, i have now been asked to remove the music tracks, or file a dispute over copyright infringement, so i will file a dispute, as i am not going to remove the music until i see what they do.
As you can probably tell, the video was shot entirely in hand held roaming mode with the camera mounted on one of my custom made Rigs (see images below)
The video was shot in 1080/50p avchd @ 26Mbps using one of my SDT750 Cams (i love these cams for roaming video and traveling) with Auto Focus and Image Stabilization both turned on, and my editing was done using VRD Pro, and Audacity was used to very quickly create the single Music track to add to the video.
The Video ReDo editing software does not do Slideshows, nor does it allow us to do things like Fade in or Fade out overlay transitions like other software does, so my Slideshows are created using Movie Maker 2012, with a mild 2 second Fade down transition, along with a Zoom In animation applied to each photo.
The Music track is also added to the Slideshow in Movie Maker and output to 1080/25p, then taken into VRD to add my solid Title and credit, which i then smart render back tto 1080/25p.
This is my very first go at adding music to my videos, usually with all my videos i do a running commentary from behind the camera, but this car show was held inside a big concrete building with a tin roof, there was 50’s & 60’s rock music being played in a juke box at one end, and people talking on Mics at the other, all of which made it impossible for me to record my commentary properly.
The Music was a selection of tracks by “The Ventures” taken from an album titled “Walk Don’t Run” which i have to thank Brainiac for suggesting this band in my other thread, it turned out to be a good option given that i was able to cut the required tracks from the one album in Audacity to fit the video without too much processing involved, saving me a lot of time by not having to look for several individual tracks and have to create the audio track from those using Audacity.
The video was uploaded in its original 1080/50p quality & 24Mbps in an mp4 container, which took 12 hours to complete, with 2 hours for Youtube to re-encode my video to a lower bitrate for publication.
Now, while editing the video clips, i noticed that there was several parts where my camera appeared to very momentarily lose auto focus, which i have never seen these cams do before in all the years i have used them, but the footage that was shot outside at the end of the video seemed to be ok, so all i can put this down to was the horrible job they did with the lighting in the building, as well as all the reflection in the paintwork on the cars as well.
They had a lot of natural daylight coming in thru plastic roofing sheets, and thru several big doorways that opened onto the docks outside, plus they had all these horrible lights hanging from the roof, then they had lamps on poles around some of the cars, very poorly done, and maybe this was the cause of my auto focus system going crazy every now and then.
Anyway, i got the job done the best i could given i had to weave around all the people, and put up with people bumping me and cutting in front of the camera, even tho they could see that i was shooting the video.
I know this is not the best video i have shot, but given the conditions i had to deal with, i am pretty happy with the way it came out.
The video LED lights were not attached while i was shooting this video
