Re: BIAFF 2018 RESULTS

I am more interested to discover why you are always
the first to know your results of this competition.

Do you have a secret way of finding out before everyone else?

Re: Editor/viewer lamp

Of course, you couldn't always try plugging in your editor/viewer,
and then switching it on.

That might help.

Re: Standard 8 and Super 8 Splicing

Sorry about my mistake.

I wrote it before I woke up this morning.

What I meant to say was:

And if you're not happy with cement, I'd recommend a Fuji tape splicer which uses perforated tape to fit Super 8.
But I don't think they make a tape splicer for Standard 8mm.

Re: Adobe Premier Elements (Books on)

There's another book which I own which I think might be very useful to you. Although it's for Adobe Premiere Elements 7, I feel sure you'll find it a great read. It's The Muvipix.com Guide to Adobe Premiere Elements 7 by Steve Grisetti I have a paperback version and it's now, because of its age, ver...

Re: Adobe Premier Elements (Books on)

I've been using Adobe Premiere Elements 7 for quite some time now, and I am extremely happy with it. The software is very easy to use and does everything I want it to do. I am reluctant to upgrade just in case my old projects disappear fom my hard drives, if you know what I mean. But version 7 suits...
