Big “oops, I deleted that”

November 25, 2008

Just realized that I accidentally deleted the editing files for a very short film I was working on. ;(  This means I will either have to start over with the editing process (I might still have the PNG title sequences) or give up on it.  I lost all other .blend files I was using with BlenderAVC before I moved my hard drive to this PC as well. 😦

So, in other words, oops. 😉

I am also realizing that shutter speed and frame rate are two totally different things. LOL.  Yeah, I know, I may sound amateur, and I am, but I am learning… some. ;D

So, for now, adios!

P.S. I will most likely not complete NaNoWriMo this year (2008 for those of you who have lost track) because I did not spend enough time on it, and I am only to about 20,000 words so far.  Hopefully I will get 25k before the deadline hits.  Oh well, there is always next year … and this January (2009 for those of you who forgot about the New Year) three of us will hopefully be doing a “homemade” NaNoWriMo – same goal, different month.  This means more writing for me, so that’s great… You can still see my NaNoWriMo user page here. Ciao!

Progress made – editing

July 27, 2008

Well, the conversion of the .tod worked.  Praise the Lord!  I have converted it through Power Director Express, to the resolution of 720×480 (.avi).  Adobe Premiere Pro 1.0 can’t handle HD, so with this lower DV resolution I can edit my interview of Dr. Singh!

Dr. Singh Interview 08 - in Adobe Premiere Pro 1.0

This is great news, because it means I can start working on video with what I have now, even though I’m not doing HD yet.

I hope to learn more on how to use Blender (www.blender.org,) the open source 3d content creation suite.  I may work on something in Blender soon.  If mastered, I would be able to do title effects, 3D animations, compositing, and CG FX for my films.  But until then, my options are somewhat limited, at least in the area of 3D animations and beautiful CG FX.

Once again, any film ideas are very welcome.  We’ll see what comes…

Ciao,

Thanks for listening,

P.S. I have also found out how to handwrite subtitles for Adobe Encore.  Now I can work on the subtitles for MIG (Miracle In Gansu play to DVD,) and work to complete the project.  (Previously I had tried to write the subtitles in Encore, which caused the Encore file to get corrupted.  I recommend writing subtitles in a third-party app (like Notepad,) by hand, and then import them.)
