[Disclaimer - Yes, this is a skate video of sorts (Sorry Mark!) but it isn't skateboards and the riding is decent]
I got the trial of Vegas Pro recently and decided to try and use it to make my latest video as I was having real problems getting 50FPS progressive from 25FPS interlaced with the footage from my miniket MPEG4 camera. I had other issues with the Vegas route, but I think I have that nailed now.
Anyway. I now have a first draft up, more about the clip order as anything else, I followed the rough sequence of the original competition that I am covering, which was divided into three "zones". I generally got one or two positions in most zones and I am thinking I should maybe mix it up between them within the zone sections - mixing the high and low shots up more maybe? I definately think I need to smooth some of the cuts as some seem to jar on the eye - I think this is when you see a rider moving and it cuts to a similar angle but no rider there, the brain freaks as they are not there any more (And maybe someone else is). I am, however, trying to avoid going crazy with the effects palette like a complete noob
I do want to know how to do pulses of light in Vegas though... I se how to do it as a transition, but not in the middle of a clip. Just split the clip into two maybe?
Anyway, flame away...
