Re: BIAFF Web Page

It works OK for me, with no warnings. OK via the home link at the top of this forum webpage, and via a Google enquiry. My ISP is Virgin Media, and I use Chrome browser.

Re: Peculiar Camera Mounts

Here's an improvised tripod I made on a recent wild camping trip...... https://1drv.ms/u/s!AoAozYX-65zkgoR7ye3ZqThRImaYXw?e=sAtbot Clicking the above hyperlink will reveal the picture, but the 'insert picture' feature below (small mountain icon described in Jameela's post) doesn't seem to work. http...

Re: Da Vinci Resolve 15 & possibly 16

Several members of Altrincham Moviemakers have been using Da Vinci Resolve for a while now, and seem delighted with it. It's a full-featured package comparable to Adobe Premiere Pro and Final Cut Pro, and a step up from cheaper packages like Premiere Elements, iMovie, and the products from Corel, Pi...

Mermaid & mini Mermaid

I see these competitions are included at the IAC AGM, but what are they? I'd like to encourage members of my clubs to support them, but I can't find the current rules/entry requirements or the closing dates. There is stuff about previous competitions on the website, but nothing current. Can anyone h...

Re: Converting 30 FPS to 25
