Hi Albert

I put those light leaks in, I was just trying it out to see if I liked the effect. I'm not struck on them either. Good to experiment with these things though!

Default Christmas Lights 2013: Regent St. London - The 12 Days of Christmas

Here's a brief slideshow of 2013 Christmas Lights in Regent Street & St. James's, London. The theme is "The Twelve Days of Christmas."

Photos were taken using my dodgy camera, at shutter-speeds far below common-sense, in challenging conditions.

Some were taken from an angle so I've used PhotoPlus X6 to straighten these, and also to lighten dark areas of the unevenly lit boards.

(Rather roughly by using the magic wand to select the light areas, inverting the selection, lightening this new selection.)

I hope the music from YouTube's Audio Library is OK. It's set to -9dB.

Movie exported from MvPx4 as 720p CBR PAL MP4 at 4MBits/sec. Then fixed for "fast start" streaming.

Default Whale & Dolphin Watching

This morning's effort, now on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0VrfWPwcj10

Filmed in 1080i on a JVC camcorder, exported from MvPx6 as 720p PAL MP4, then fixed for fast-start streaming.

7 minutes 20 seconds is perhaps rather long, but did not want to lose interesting bits.

No adjustments to exposure or colours etc.; experimentally, all transitions are simple jump-cuts rather than fades etc. I have used the "crop" adjustment to zoom into the whales. (To avoid disturbing the whales, boats must keep their distance.)

Default Wretched Roach Wrecks Wreck Dive

What happens, when you don't check the waterproof camera housing: A stow-away.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ldECjfw4GxY

Camera: Canon G11 in waterproof housing, set to its 640x480px 30fps video mode.
Exported from MvPx6 as 640x480px NTSC MP4, then fixed for fast-start streaming.

I had hoped to rebuild more of the missing Red channel information, using the Channel-Mixer effect in MvPx6. But perhaps at 25 metre depth there was simply not enough Red light left?

Default Re: Let's see your MvP produced movie

Years ago, my wife had the idea of a project for kids, combining 3D animation and real people. We made a video together.
The montage is done in MoviePlus, using many layers. I used also PhotoPlus to create masks. The scene where Amira is mixing the magic potion had a so bad light that the only way I found to get the mix with the 3D environment right was to load the 20 seconds video into PhotoPlus and to clean each frame one by one (25x20=500 frames).
I also used ImpactPlus for some effects (like the title appearing on the book).

Here the video with English sub-titles:

Default Re: Let's see your MvP produced movie

People often ask about how to save archive copies of video sources from MoviePlus. I had to construct tonight's YouTube using "second generation" MPEG-2 files, rather than the original miniDV DV-AVI sources:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3diyq29cKpM

Back in 2005, I had captured this miniDV material as DV-AVI, using MoviePlus 4; then exported it as 4Mbps MPEG-2 files, to save storage space. (If only I'd know then... )

Tonight, I re-imported these 720x576px PAL MPEG-2 files into MoviePlus X6 and exported the final movie as 640x480px MP4. (Later fixed for fast-start streaming.)

The result is OK, but it would have been better if I'd been able to use the original miniDV or DV-AVI sources. The MPEG-2 codec in MvPx6 is probably better than the ancient one in MvP4. These days, I would also have used a higher export bit-rate.

My first attempt.

My recent trip to Hong Kong in Jan / Feb 2014.

Part 1 shows that even in Hong Kong you can find peace and quiet.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q70dBY2CX58

Second part is a mix including some of the New Year Fireworks on Victoria Harbour ( on my birthday ! )

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UQIdwYIILJQ

Highly recommend a trip to HK.

Enjoy - all shot in 1080P HD using canon SX50HS DSLR camera.

Cheers
Paul

Default Re: Let's see your MvP produced movie

For a first attempt, or even a second attempt, the films were pretty damn good. All shots were beautifully framed and rock solid - tripods are pretty useful aren't they?

I thought that some of the shots were held just a little too long, especially in the first video. With static shots with not a lot of movement, a couple or three seconds is usually enough. If you really wanted the shot to carry on for longer, to synch with the music for example, then I would try a very gentle zoom, just to break the shot up slightly, and to keep the movie going. Some people get bored very easily. I thought the firework sequence was really good, I do enjoy a good display, again a gentle zoom out, just to reveal the person with his camera phone, would have been acceptable.

Just me being picky I guess.

BTW I'm glad you have managed to resolve the problem as in the other thread.

Nicely done. Also, I did like the arrival at that camp.

Went to a free 60's music event at a local marina on Monday, sighing wistfully for a long forgotten youth

The sound level overwhelmed the Rode Mike plugged into my camera, fortunately I had a Tascam sound recorder as well, though synching it up was a bit tricky.

MoviePlus's versatility with still images makes this sort of project so easy.

Made all the gaming vids with Movie Plus, nothing too advanced, just overlays, some pan and zooms, whole vids with names blurred out, moving shapes and arrows in some cases and text/credits.

deekaybe,
Congrats on such a brilliant job which must have taken hours of careful work. Good sense of fun too - have you made further episodes and is the project a commercial one?

Default YouTube Video with Long Scrolling Text

Here's a MoviePlus X6 video with long scrolling text, uploaded to YouTube:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rzPRMoPEbqo

This is my first attempt with such a long passage of scrolling text.

I found this old letter amongst my papers a few days ago, while looking for something else. It seemed worth publishing but I was not sure how.

Eventually:

- Using PagePlus, I created an ePub eBook, and transferred this to my Android tablet.
- The TTS+ Text to Speech plugin to the FB Reader app read this eBook aloud.
- Audacity on the PC recorded the speech output and converted it to a Wav audio file.

- Edit Story in PagePlus exported the text as an RTF file which I opened using Libre Office, then copied & pasted this into MS NotePad.
- With "word-wrap" ON, I narrowed the Notepad window to about the correct width and saved this file so as to "fix" the line endings.
- When I copied & pasted this from Notepad back into LibreOffice, it kept its line endings.

- In MoviePlus X6, I added a text box, set it to scrolling text, and pasted the text.
- Then adjusted the fonts & effects, and adjusted both the start position & duration.

- I could not find my old photos of Droxford Station, so had to settle for that one of a V1.
- Image opacity is quickly reduced to 75%, in order to make the text easier to read.

- The initial drumming is from an Android Drum-Kit app.

- Exported from MoviePlus X6 as a 720p PAL MP4, then fixed for fast start streaming before being uploaded to YouTube. The custom thumbnail was a copied video frame.

All rather rough, but the content is unique so seemed worth making public.

BTW. Not surprisingly, I did have to correct the pronunciation of some words. But this "low quality" English Google voice is surprisingly accurate.

Here's my latest in the series; another first-hand account.

BTW. Exporting these movies with long scrolling text, takes much longer than usual. On this 64-bit i5 PC, it takes up to 10x the duration of the movie, for each pass (of 2-pass exporting).
