Okay - will do - so far we have got
cut the clips to remove the portions where the camera itself moves and or "jumps' - I guess I was wrong but I kind of like the clips where the camera moves a little as it zooms - it gave it a certain kind of I don't know maybe a feel where even though it was slowing down in speed to slo mo it wasn't a static slow and showed a little realism or life to the frame - not saying I am right but maybe someone could see what I was trying for and give me an idea of how to make it work - I have other shots where that doesn't happen that I could certainly use
Look at the water effect and find a better solution for the slow motion as it may not work together when they cross fade (any suggestions on how I could make it work - maybe it looks better in the full size footage but the water is just mesmerizing when I watch it I would hate to cut it out completely)
Go to stock rain sound (the reason I used the real stuff was I couldn't believe how well it came through - when the sound quality is at it's best I could not tell the difference between my recording and a nature rain sounds cd I have. (you are right though apart from the wind that hits the mike a couple of times and the transition - so close yet so far!)
Yeah Marc I hear you on the frame sliding across - this may be an example of an effect that I did because I could - although I did hold back on most of it - will consider taking this out changing it - what if it slid over another shot perhaps farther away of them holding hands then the close up slides acoss - of course this may work better as a fade or silhouette - but I don't think a video that is all fades is right either I wanted a little something different somewhere near the middle - oh and "The client" is my brother as I said in another post - don't want people thinking I am cooler than I am - but I do hope to get this right and start to build a sample DVD selection to possibly start a weekend business in the near future
Great feedback guys I will get to work on it and hopefully post an update - any more viewers with 2 cents?
The tale of my death has been greatly exagerated
