Re: Sony vegas and .mp4

Thanks to you, too, Tim. Yes, I put Black background below when I'm doing 4:3 on 16:9 tho have used a colour roughly matching the scene when mixing with original 16:9.

Re: Sony vegas and .mp4

"hadn't thought of doing it for the usb stick. Why? Don't know! Another anno domini reminder, I think."

Of course - because the object of the excercise is to see if we can make the projector change to 4:3, so giving people as many options as they may be able to offer.

Re: Sony vegas and .mp4

Thank you, John. I'll print this and take it stage by stage! I'd use the same process for making DVDs nowadays and in fact have done that already from the original Premiere 6.5 (!!!) but hadn't thought of doing it for the usb stick. Why? Don't know! Another anno domini reminder, I think.

Sony vegas and .mp4

Our new Epson projector will not allow us to alter the screen to 4:3 for older films from DVD. (A disadvantage for a group such as ours with a library of old films) Instructions say the ability to do this depends on the source. We think .mp4 on memory stick by usb connection will work but to confirm...

Re: BIAFF 2018

I've only just caught up with this although it's been going for months. Michael said - Anyway, your suggestion that professional kit would ensure better films is nonsense, we all have access to the kit, it's the minds behind the kit that make the films. I'm just asking the question generally not aim...

Re: Data protection Act

Entirely agre, Michael. I was brought up invillages of a few hundred people where everyone knew everyone and what they were up to. So I am not worried by CCTV but I wondered if the Act was to make sure that everyone who held other people's data had to have barriers in place to stop the lists being a...

Re: Hi8 players

Thanks for reply, Tom. No they both bit the dust. I have had the god fortune to have a pro Hi8 double deck, I forget its number at the moment. The play deck is worn out and the record one comes and goes. Today it has played a tape that wouldn't play yesterday and only half played the day before. Per...

Hi8 players

I have rediscoverd how much better original Hi8 quality was than the edited reproductions through three generations were and have copied some Hi8 to digital via s-video connection but my Hi8 deck is failing. Has anyone a deck or camera which they no longer require that can still play tapes? Please p...

Re: Club Insurance

I HAVE heard from the town hall. Their insurers will NOT cover us as we are 'not under their direction'.
I don't really see why a club should need higher insurance than these guys who go around filming on the move on their phones whithout looking where they are going!

Re: Curving lettering on DVD with Canon Easy photo print

Thanks, Dave,just what I was looking for and maybe had in the summer. Will do the download and try that. Have a happy Christmas and let's hope people can come together more in 2018. If we could all act together like this forum, from which I take more than I can ever give, we'd be a happier species! ...

Curving lettering on DVD with Canon Easy photo print

In the summer I printed DVDs with curved lines of print using Canon Easy photo print Ex Can I do it now? Can I Nelly! My computer lost a pile of files earlier this month which needs a better brain (at present in Tasmania!) than mine to explain, including the DVD print file so I can't play with that....

Re: Club Insurance

Sorry, Brian, I've missed responding to your post. Thanks. I am still waiting ti hear from our town council and doubt I ever will until they ask us to do something for us again, possibly November '18 remembrance.
