I've been playing with the video editing software......

So i spent the last 45 mins dicking around with the Adobe Premier Elements Suite that came with my camcorder (which has pissed me off to no end, because there is no "Star Wipe" option) to try and figure out how to make my videos less or more horrible. As all other Adobe products, it is a pain to figure out, but once you get the hang of it, it seems like there is nothing you can't do.

The following video is a random, dumb video that i had shot the other night while playing with the camcorder. It is nothing special, but compared to the original video, i think the Adobe added some flair to an otherwise dull vid. I hope that you see at least a bit of progress on my part and i hope to get a better hang of it in the near future so that i may get into the nitty gritty of video making for this blog.

Here it is, in all of its Justin molested glory....... Ps. When i ripped this video from the original during editing, it lost like 80% of its quality during the process... I'll try to make it better next time, or maybe i need to actually go buy good software...




Just remember, it's your feedback that makes this stuff wayyyyy better. Tell me that my transitions need more star wipes, better music (although this was ripped at like 48kbits and sounds horrible, its just to get the hang of making stuff work right) more cowbell... whatever it may need to help me in the future.

Whoa, I love this, it's really awesome. I like all the different music transitions and stuff, and the text. What's a star wipe?

you are kidding me dana right? star wipes are where it wipes the screen to the next screen and does it in the shape of a star zooming? what kind of photographer are you that you don't even know star wipes! CHRIST!
