    Default holiday title

    hello all,

    well i finally singned up to this excellent forum after being a "background fan" for a while.

    been into video and editing for around 5 years now gradually improving upon cameras and techniques.

    my first post is a title video for a upcoming holiday in prague.its the first rough attempt just to give me some ideas on how the thing will look.
    anything could change...

    comments welcome

    Hi Shutster!

    Nice and classy - love the scrolling effect. nice and minimalistic although IMHO the 3d logo effect is a bit cheesy. If you like the effect though, maybe just use it on one, rather than both.

    7 times, one comment? People...

    Anyways, because I work for a shit company I can't view the video. But I'm sure it's very good - but I won't take Mike's word and will download tonight.

    I quite like the idea of having forum fans. I wonder how many other regular 'viewers' we have that haven't posted?

    We rock, dude.

    I thought that scrolling effect was great as well. It makes a really nice intro.

    I'd like to know how to do it.

    Win XP, Athlon 1.8, G force 3 T, 1 60gig drive + 1 250 gig, Pinnacle Studio 9 plus mostly, Premiere 6, and Vegas 5 sometimes, Soundforge, Cool Edit.

    I liked it!
    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
    Sony TRV33e : Sony TRV310e : Canon XM2
    Sony Vegas Studio editions to v11

    Remember, there is always more to learn than there is to teach.

    I'm with Mike wrt the 3d text. I'd like to see the end result of the 3d effect faded in just as the videos stop scrolling - the 3d effect seems at odds with the mood set by the music and the font used.

    Not sure if it's the bitrate/codec used, but the videos (I think they are actually stills?) didn't scroll smoothly - you might want to try increasing the speed.

    4 x PIP means the stills are quite squashed, which renders actually making out what they are almost impossible. The large 3d text effect adds to this...

    But overall a polished attempt! Did you used Ulead cool3D for the text? Gillian, if you haven't used this, I'd give it a whirl, (even if that's not what our new member has used!)

    I liked the 3d text at the start, for a general intro, and I liked the Panoramic photos sliding in too, but like Marc said, I couldn't really make them out, but I guess it is just the intro.
    In fact I might use some panoramic pic's I took recently in a similar way.

    impressive opening.

    WOW...didnt expect so many comments so soon..thanks!

    Anyway the panoramic pictures will be replaced with footage,once i get it!
    and i might just go with the idea of the text fade rather than the 3d effect.

    The 3d text was was done in blufftitler which i think is a nice little programme.
    I created the text then used chroma keying over the panoramic photos.

    The photo movement was done in vegas 5 and as were the lines using the
    portals transistion.

    The quality doesnt really do it justice as its only rendered using the cinepak codec at the lowest quality.Also i used widescreen so maybe this didnt help.

    Oh,and the music is a track from freeplay music.

    But as a said its just to give me sort of idea on how thing will look.

    Hope this answers some of your questions.
