    Default Inspiration Needed

    Help. I need some inspiration! Only my second wedding montage and I can't think of anything funky to do...

    ...this is my best effort! I couldn't even find the right music :-( Imagine doing this for a living?

    Although I am new, and not very good at video editing. I would suggest maybe taking the music down at certain spots, like when the groom is standing at the table, just so you can hear either laughing or talking, or something like that. And perhaps starting off with the first kiss at the church. I don't know, something mooshy like that.

    I do however, think the music is great with it, and like the way it is set up.

    Make it gradually slower, ending with the confetti shot at about 30% to 50% of original speed.

    Other than that it looks like a good montage to me!

    COMPAQ something or other with 500Gb Boot Disk, 1Tb external Firewire Disk, 4Gb Memory and a super duper sound card, 19" TFT Monitor etc etc etc

    Is there anywhere to get free (no charge) royalty free music?

    Also, did you create the opening clip of the rose? ... I thought that added a nice touch.

    Thanks.

    You occasionally get royalty free music on magazine covers, but generally speaking you'll be extremely limited to choice. Royalty free music may appear expensive at first glance, but remember you can use the piece over and over (and over) again at no additional cost. And I'm sure that the next guy on the list of the large music companies will be video editors after peer-to-peer users LOL

    The spinning rose was stock footage from the digitaljuice.com series of effects and jumpbacks. They help add a touch of class to videos when you simply don't have the time (or in my case, skill) to create your own. But, as with any effect, it's knowing when and why to use them Overuse can be as bad a sin as forgetting to press record on you camcorder
