Re: Sony Vegas NLE's

Several of my colleagues use Power Director and swear by it. However, I know nothing about it all all so can't give any advice.

Re: CAMERA SLIDERS

Thanks for those suggestions, but it doesn't really answer my question. I have viewed many, many videos on YT showing, explaining and promoting the various Sliders. I was really interested in info from anyone actually using one here in the UK and what model they had etc.
Thanks again. Pete.

CAMERA SLIDERS

I've always had the urge to see/try a camera slider. There seem to be so many around from the relative inexpensive to the astonishing expensive. Does any one use one? Has anyone had practical experience of using one and would care to share their experiences with us?

Cheers. Pete.

Re: Long recordings onto DVD

Hello Michael, Thanks for interesting and kind words. I had several years as a pro in still photography. B&W then colour etc. Weddings, funerals, portraits and pets and all the rest but no videos until about the late 1980s. Till now I've never even had to think about 'compression', in fact till now ...

Re: Long recordings onto DVD

Thanks Both. As I have Encore etc. I can see that I will have to do some advanced learning with these programmes. Actually, it is only trying to help a colleague for his latest stage show that all this has come about.. You both have given me the background to what I must do and for that my thanks. W...

Re: Long recordings onto DVD

Hello Michael. Many thanks for all that info. Hope you wont mind me saying, but a lot is right over my aged head. My DVDs are created as follows. Footage edited in Premiere CS6 and then, from within that programme, the project is exported to Premiere Encore to make the disc. All the settings are lef...

Re: Long recordings onto DVD

Tim. From your gen I followed through to find the info about doing the same thing in Premiere CS6 and Encore. By Jove, this will keep my brain occupied for many, many hours. Whether I ever get there who is to know. I'm surprised that no one has answered with how they put long shows on DVD. There mus...

Re: Long recordings onto DVD

Thanks Tim,
That sounds like the direction I need to go and I will follow it up. I am using Prem CS6 but hope to be able to follow.
Thanks again.

Long recordings onto DVD

Sorry to raise the hoary old subject again. A colleague regularly videos Pantomime type shows of about 1 hour in each half. Till now he has recorded each half on Mini DV tapes. I gather these two halves he puts onto the hard drive of a domestic stand-alone DVD recorder. He can then produce a 2 hour ...

Re: File breaks in long SD card recording

Thanks Michael. For my own first long project I did manage to cover these join points with bits from camera 2. However, my colleague only has footage from one camera so he has nothing with which to cover up the joins. As mentioned in my second posting, with my latest project the joins between the fi...

Re: File breaks in long SD card recording

Thanks very much Col for the information. Hope you will forgive this very aged old boy, but I assume I would go to Sony web site to find the item, but is there a name of this utility that I should search for? Any further gen would be appreciated. As a follow up, I recorded a long show last Saturday ...

File breaks in long SD card recording

I know this has been discussed before but it had passed me by. Both myself and a colleague have videoed stage shows of an hour plus on Sony cameras with SD cards. Naturally we have discovered that the recordings have been split into section (as we had heard about) but on the time line they certainly...

Re: PREM CS6 PROBLEM

Thank you both. Yes Dave, it's right to be reminded of the obvious but I certainly checked that. I'm wading through the link you sent Col (a bit heavy going for me!) However, I have worked round it all by going back on the 'auto save' and all seems well at the moment. Recently I've been having vario...

PREM CS6 PROBLEM

Why do these things always happen to me? I have created a 40 minute sequence with lots of short edited clips and all is well . . till now . . Have just reloaded it and the audio on all the clips is shown apparently as off line. - well no sound is heard. The audio on the original clips is still fine ...

Oh No - not another technical problem.

For several years I’ve used for copying discs a programme called BurnOn CD&DVD. After it copies it always retains the files for making further copies if needed. It makes the saved file as Subject.mds. It has always done me proud. I’ve just been asked to make a further copy of a DVD made ages ago and...
