Re: YOUTUBE REVISITED

Perhaps the UK front page is different. The content I get here is just slick commercial stuff with everything bannered with an advert. Sometime ago, if there had been an event or protest say in the centre of Lyon, it would be appear on the front page as 'latest uploads'. If the trains were late or g...

YOUTUBE REVISITED

Is it me? One time of day, in the not too distant past. YouTube was frowned upon as being a place for kids, or indeed anyone uploading loads of rubbish videos when and as things happened. It seemed generally frowned upon as a flash in the pan, won't last site and of no serious interest. By conincide...

Re: PC Monitor v TV

Picking up Tom Hardwick's point about broadcast colours, interlacing etc, can he perhaps please give a little more enlightenment. I am only ever been drawn to the broadcast colours, the safe zone term, pu meters etc. When a project I was working on with a collegue had the potential to be, well, 'bro...

Re: Movies from modestly priced "still" cameras

I believe I raised this sometime ago and you responded Dave. I can't readily find the post. I mentioned that I had a Panasonic Lumix FZ28 camera with a video facility. The quality is very good. It produces an Apple QuickTime .MOV file at 30fps. You can select for output either as PAL or NTS what's i...

Re: H2 ZOOM DIGITAL RECORDER

H2 Zoom . I am intending to get one soon. I posted a question about this in September. My experience with using one of these is when I was editing an event. I was dragged into recording a chorale concert some time ago. A collegue placed an H2 Zoom on the front of the stage and left it running. It r...

Re: MAGIX Edit Pro 17

Thanks for your comments folks. I have downloaded a trial of Vegas as suggested, and it looks good. It appears to be very stable and I like the file structure. It has features and tricks which need to be adapted to but as you have said the help pages readily give the answers. Will I buy? It looks a ...

Re: MAGIX Edit Pro 17

Hi Ned, Thanks for your reply. I'll have a look at the Vegas software you mentioned and perhaps download a trial to see how it functions. I don't need any other than standard DV at the moment. I have found MAGIX a little disappointing and less stable than the earlier edition I had. Apart from the po...

MAGIX Edit Pro 17

Movie MAGIX version Pro 17. While there is an item on the IAC site about version 15, I cannot see that there is much difference in the latest version. I have used MAGIX since version 10 and then a later update. These earlier versions, as is with 'Premier' will not run on Win7 64bit. However, the te...

H2 ZOOM DIGITAL RECORDER

I am thinking of acquiring a H2 Zoom digital recorder. It will have an obvious use for recording background sound and for voice overs. Anyone using one? If you align the sound track when editing, does it run in sync – or lip sync? Microphones. I am looking at a RODE stereo video microphone or a SENN...

Re: The Comedy Thread

Translated from a post 'Conversation avec Dieu'. Conversation with God Man: Are you there God? God: Yes my son. Man: Can I ask you a question? God: Certainly! Man: How long is a million years for you? God: One second. Man: And a million dollars? God: Just one centime. Man: Will you give me just one ...

UNICA: DEUX MILLE DIX ?

Did UNICA take place this year? Reading Nuneaton Moviemakers on line Newspage, by Gerry B, I see that they won for the UK the one minute competition with the film 'Just someone'. This he goes on to add, is the first time the UK has won this award. I can recall the first UNICA I attended in Blankenbe...

GREEN GRASS AND WARM BEER§

I am pleased that I have solicited some reaction, Ned. Treacle Pud, and thick custard! I like the mountains and lakes, but perhaps my scale of things is more akin to narrow boats and daisy the cow mooing in a small meadow. You mention the distance of 'just two and a half hours away'. That’s nearly M...

Re: I am killing my babies

Reading Willy's report about Wensleydale gives me that 'Oh! to be in England ' feeling again. Damp glasses and soup of the day. Have you included something about Wallis and Grommit in your film? Filming yesterday for five hours in the hot sun of Lyon, gives me that want for the cool green grass of h...

Re: The Comedy Thread

Here's another one Billy. There is a French snack called 'croque-monsiuer'. It is like Welsh Rarebit and in English it is more usually known as cheese on toast. There was a report on a English news service this morning, telling that in Bolougne, gendarmes had cleared the beach of bathers yesterday, ...
