Working on new Minosa Films blog header

New design WIP - Minosa Films blog header (Blender's node editor.)

Recently I have been working on a new header design for the Minosa Films blog.  It is not done yet, but it is turning out well.  I am using render layers and compositing them together, which is a first for me.  Praise God!  The theme is darker and has a moon, branches, the words “Minosa Films” and a nifty little design behind it.

Originally I was designing this in a hope to make an animated Minosa Films title intro for a promo video about Minosa Films.  I could make it theatrical like a silver screen trailer, or I could make it more instructional, like an interview or special feature.

I need to get back to solving the mystery of a successful video workflow.  My current progress on that is:

Import HD SP video file (.tod) into PowerDirector Express.
Drag video file onto the timeline.  Hit produce.
Go through a number of options and choose to export as an MPEG2 (for DVDs.)
Wait for it to render.
Import .mpg file into Adobe Premiere Pro 1.0.
Place on timeline.  There are no apparent “hiccups”.
Export video to .mov (Apple QuickTime.)
Play video in Media Player Classic – it works.

Goals:
I would prefer to someday edit in full HD; use a faster (better) conversion method; buy and use a newer, different, HD compatible non-linear editing (NLE) app; edit .avi (or .mpg if I choose to);  export to .avi, .mpg. with no  errors when opening in MPC (Media Player Classic,); be able to use After Effects (AE) in conjunction with Premiere (currently when I export from After Effects I get a jittered effect to the video and some artifacts.  Most unpleasing and… terrible.)

Goals in list form:

  • HD
  • Best conversion method (no conversion if possible.)
  • New NLE software
  • No editing hiccups
  • Excellent file export
  • Cross-software use

But for now, no HD!  No fooling around with the unnecessary.  😉

Thanks for listening,

God bless, prayers,

Presently

August 3, 2008

Right now I have been biding my time, working on Blender, etc.    But I need to buckle down and solve the problem of using .tod, and get writing scripts for our films.  It is sad that we have not gotten farther than this yet.  But who am I?  I know that if we are to suceed in doing this, I must lead you.

So, forgive my delay.  We will see if I will be able to solve the software issues, and get some good results.  I successfully converted a HD SP .tod file to 720×480 .avi, but I want to be able to use the full HD someday, so this will not solve my problems always, unless I can change the settings (which I most likely can, but I haven’t done it yet.) But when I try to edit it in Premiere Pro 1.0 the video freezes at a certain point, and is stuck till the last frame.

Anyhow, I have yet to finish MIG, solve .tod, prepare more Blender stuff, and something else as well.

May God bless you in the coming days, and, may you now, at this moment, discover your purpose.

Don’t forget.
