Video has quickly become my favorite marketing tool. :-)

TIP -- When posting to YouTube, fully utilize the 'Description' space. Take advantage of the chance to add links and more info about your work and your web presence!

Here's a quickie-vid, promoting a single, recent piece -

ooo Wendy :))

Created using Stupeflix Video Maker

55 individual images -- transition in swf format -- 30 frames per image/25 frames per second -- exported to standard video movie editor & voila



Note:Swf -- shock wave flash. There was much rumour that this format was being deprecated -- may well be -- doesn't matter -- can now export the often seamless editing capability of this format to any .avi, mp4, wmv etc.

Flash is often misconstrued as 'flashy' -- it's merely an acronym for its origins.

Steep learning curve -- a friend studying it as part of her media class said one of her classmates almost put his fist through his monitor in frustration one afternoon. I get that ;)

Thanks for sharing your enigmatic video visions!

Sorry, Tony -- I could only watch about two minutes of your cool vid. It would seem I've got some previously undiagnosed vertigo issues. Who knew? ;-)

Now that's a happening piece David -- cool animated quaternion ;)

Really enjoy exploring the 3D fractal terrain

All the videos are great!

This is the first part of a video I made several years ago. I hope you don't mind that it's not of my art or still photography.

Part 1 covers the Christening of my nephew. The link goes to where the video resides on my Facebook page...

http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=1387862580895

AND...

I completed my first video OOB image presentation today...

 

Posted by: Brian Wallace on 05/03/2012 - 2:11 AM

I don't expect many to view this one because it's a 3D video requiring Red/Cyan filtered 3D glasses.

It's my second video of OOB images but this time in the 3D stereo anaglyph format...



Please increase the video quality to 720p HD or 1080p HD to reduce ghosting.

Are there any FREE video creation programs you all are using? These are great!

Here are a few of my ooooold videos! I need to do new ones (and yes, I know these look awful with my name across the middle of each picture!)
How DO you add YouTube Videos to these posts? Not sure if this will work...

This is one of my fist ones...from 4 years ago!

http://youtu.be/3YHE35KUpJI

This one I did over a year ago...

Posted by: Brian Wallace on 05/03/2012 - 4:07 AM

Rose,

If you are using the Windows platform, you may be able to download this free software for Windows Live Movie Maker... http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-live/essentials-help-center?t1=t3

There is a download button on that site. Make sure you read the requirements first... http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-live/movie-maker-system-requirements-ui

And yes, your YouTube links are still operational. :)

 

Posted by: Rose Santuci-Sofranko on 05/03/2012 - 1:43 PM

Thanks Brian....yes, the Windows Live Movie Maker was on my last pooter....haven't seen it on this one yet, but I should check...or download it. That's what I used for the videos I tried to post above.

But HOW do you post YouTube Videos here? I tried the Embed Code and it disappeared after I submitted the post.....then I posted the "share" link above, and that doesn't seem to work either. Help!

 

Posted by: Rose Santuci-Sofranko on 05/03/2012 - 1:44 PM

Oh, way cool, it IS on this newish computer. Gonna have fun now!

 

Posted by: Isabella F Abbie Shores on 05/03/2012 - 1:45 PM

use the iframe code

 

Posted by: Rose Santuci-Sofranko on 05/03/2012 - 2:19 PM

What does that mean, Beth?

 

Posted by: Tony Murray on 05/03/2012 - 3:49 PM


Took this while walking the dog.


 

Posted by: Brian Wallace on 05/03/2012 - 5:20 PM

Rose,

To get the correct embed code, click on "share", then click on "embed" and copy the embed code.


 

Posted by: Rose Santuci-Sofranko on 05/03/2012 - 7:42 PM

Thanks Brian, I did that several times and yet nothing came up in this thread.... I'll try it once more, not sure what the problem is.

This video (if it shows up) is about 1 year old.... working on some new (and hopefully better) ones of my work here at FAA:

Well, that didn't work....trying something else now:





 

Posted by: Rose Santuci-Sofranko on 05/03/2012 - 7:45 PM

Yeah! Finally!

 

Posted by: Carmen Hathaway on 05/03/2012 - 7:48 PM



**LOL -- must've been posting this as you were also Rose -- will just leave directions up for anyone else looking to post from YouTube....Like so, Rose -- just below your video you'll find the settings

Thanks, Carmen. I am actually looking into something better than the windows movie maker for windows 7.

I actually remember using the Vista edition of windows movie maker and it was much more veratile than the windows 7 version.

Has anyone used Adobe Premier or premier elements? or the video edition options in Photoshop cs6?

 

Posted by: Brian Wallace on 06/10/2012 - 8:30 PM

Yes Christopher, I've slightly touched the Adobe Premier (30 day trial), and I have Photoshop CS6 and only slightly fooled around with the video portion. To me they are much more complicated and I haven't put enough time in to them to be thrilled with the learning curve. I will say that if you don't need a bunch of special effects, the "Windows Live Movie Maker" is very easy and FREE. Unless you're trying to create art with your video instead of promoting your art through video, there's something to be said for simplicity.

I saw an online sale price on "MAGIX Movie Edit Pro 17 Plus" for $29. This is down from $99, I'm guessing because there is version 18 now. It also does 3D stereo editing which includes .MPO files which I've been using in my 3D stereo work. I do occasionally create 3D videos as well and I would like to have a better software for editing and creating them. For that price, I went ahead and ordered the product. I received the product and have used it but I still have much to learn with it. As I progress I'll try to post some videos created with the product. BTW, they often reduce the price like that even if it goes back up for a period.

Like Nate, I have used Camtasia Studio while I was an instructor at work. I was doing well with it but decided to retire and the program stayed at work.

Carman does the most videos that I've seen on FAA and she is familiar with several that are much more elaborate than the free, less powerful versions you can obtain.

This is not my video but I thought some might be interested in viewing this art form. Pretty cool I think. Take it with a grain of salt!

My first video, featuring my Music Lovers' series of digital watercolors. I'm in love with the music on this! Watch it here: http://youtu.be/6Eg0nxVAMDE

Here's one of my Digital Images videos with a relaxing theme...I hope you enjoy it:

 

Posted by: Nikki Marie Smith on 09/03/2012 - 9:39 AM

@Xoanxo - interesting concept! I like the story-telling presentation in "The Pretender."

@Brian - I like the black-and-white to color technique in your third video - cool effect. I also liked your witchy self-portrait! I may have to take one of those... :)

 

Posted by: Xoanxo Cespon on 09/03/2012 - 1:40 PM

Thank you Nikki, "The pretender" started as a black and white text and imagery project but soon I realised that a story was developing, I would create only a few images a day as the story seemed to unfold by itself. When I got to the question "Are you willing to stop pretending?" I realised that what need to be said, had been said. Finally I made some music to create atmosphere...and I admit I was, and am, quite pleased with it!

Once again, thank you for taking your time to view and comment on it!

 

Posted by: Tony Murray on 09/03/2012 - 2:17 PM

Here are some I did recently for a "Time Lapse" contest.





 

Posted by: Brian Wallace on 09/03/2012 - 2:23 PM

Thanks Nikki for viewing and commenting.

Xoanxo,
I especially liked the moving bubbles near the end of your video.

 

Posted by: Xoanxo Cespon on 09/03/2012 - 3:17 PM


Thank you Brian, it is of course made with a zooming effect on still photography and I was very pleased with the result as indeed looks like they are actually floating, as bubbles tend to do :-) Thanks again for watching and commenting!!!

 

Posted by: Nikki Marie Smith on 09/03/2012 - 3:19 PM

Wow, Tony! I love the kaleidoscope effect of your videos, and the fast-paced music is a perfect fit! Siren 2 is my favorite, followed by Fenced In Fenced Out. What software did you use to do that kaleidoscope motion, if you don't mind me asking? (Just curious.) Great work!

 

Posted by: Kylani Arrington on 09/03/2012 - 4:33 PM



My first video ever! I really hope you guys like it! Please give it a thumbs up or add a comment on the youtube page, please!

Posted by: Brian Wallace on 09/03/2012 - 7:01 PM

Nice job for your first video Kylani. Thanks for posting it here. :}

 

Posted by: Tony Murray on 09/03/2012 - 10:50 PM

Hi Nikki ! I do my editing on a MAC with an older version of "I Movie". In order to get the desired effect I also rotate my camera while I film with a device I made at work.

 

Posted by: Nikki Marie Smith on 09/04/2012 - 12:54 AM

Tony, your video and comment reminded me of a neat tutorial I found for DIY movement filming techniques using a variety of everyday objects from homemade zip lines to balloons. It's not quite the same, I know, but it's really cool to learn these tricks and hopefully someone here will find them useful:

It was done as a tutorial for the Bloggie Touch, though most of it could be adapted for other small hand-held video devices. (Warning - one of the effects is a bit dizzying to watch!)

 

Posted by: Xoanxo Cespon on 09/04/2012 - 5:07 AM

That was cool Nikki, I also liked a lot your Music Lovers, somehow reminded me of this one I did with still photography in support of my friend "Hernán Ruíz" and his interpretation on Spanish Guitar of Jacques Brel classic "Ne me quittes pas"

 

Posted by: Nikki Marie Smith on 09/04/2012 - 9:31 AM

That was beautiful, Xoanxo! Your friend is a very talented musician, and your video was a great compliment to his music -- they worked well together. :)

 

Posted by: Xoanxo Cespon on 09/04/2012 - 1:58 PM


Thank you Nikki, yes I also think he is, I call him "El Maestro" and I was lucky to have him performing in two occasions at my Art Studio. I would not want to go on, but as an example here is a recording of one of his own compositions, one of my favourites (again accompanied by some of the photos I took during his first performance)

 

Posted by: Tony Murray on 09/04/2012 - 10:14 PM

Nikki ! That video was awesome ! Thanks ….. Great ideas !
