New blog theme and header – sweet!

September 2, 2008

Praise God!  The new blog header design is done, and, viola!  I chose a different them – much darker colors and better fitting for that “media look”.

See a screenshot the Minosa Films “ninja moon” themed header (below.)

I did the project in the free, open source Blender (www.blender.org,) with post work (adding copyright I forgot) in the GIMP (www.gimp.org.)

For those of you who are not familiar with Minosa Films and what it used to look like, please see the below image of what the Minosa Films blog looked like a few hours ago.

For video editing, etc., I’ve been looking into Apple FinalCut Pro.  Looks pretty sweet.

Feeling techy, looking forward to the future.  Praise God.

Hope all is well, fellow film makers!

Still

August 5, 2008

Still testing.  Now the video is the aspect ratio I want now (16.9.)  Just a simple setting to change in Premiere Pro 1.0.  Tried to convert to Microsoft AVI (not DV AVI this time) and it still will not play in Media Player Classic.  Perhaps I need another codec?  Oh well, we will see what happens.

Working on some film thoughts.  Listening to Kate Rusby music.

I may try out Converio (http://pagesperso-orange.fr/gilles.bihan/converio_095.htm,) try some more with Squared 5 MPEG Streamclip, and perhaps other video converters.  What NLE will I use?  For now, Premiere Pro 1.0.  No HD for now.  Use what you have to the best of your ability.  Will most likely test CBR1140 recording with the Everio to see if another method to get my files to a usable format (in this case, mpeg) will work.

Thanks for listening,

We will see what the wind brings,

God bless,

P.S. Praise God!  I have been planting this blog address around in various comment boxes – YouTube, BlenderNation, Vimeo, e-mails… it may be paying off.  Here is an image of some view stats for the blog:

Praise God for everything.

P.P.S. I need to tell you what MIG (Miracle In Gansu play to DVD) is, and some more info about this blog.  We’ll leave that till later.  Till our next meeting, may God keep you.

May I grow still
