Re: [videoblogging] Re: I need help
- Sounds about right to me, too.
I think I see your problem... it's been a quandry for me, too. You
actually want multiple versions of the same thing so you capture with
the higher quality. Yet you still want the lower quality version. I
just captured about 1GB of material this weekend and have the odious
task of downsizing to make it all fit on a CD. A quick solution is to
use two cams... one for each capture type... probably not what you
want to do.

- You know that you can COPY portions of video in QuickTime Pro and then
PASTE it into a new QuickTime Pro window?
I've done this before as a quick and easy way to edit existing footage.
1. Open up Source video
2. File/NEW PLAYER
3. Go back to Source and move play head to start of video you want,
then click and drag the the triangle to the start and then move the
other triangle to the end point
5. Go to the new player window, Edit/Paste
6. GO TO #3 UNTIL DONE

on apple Command B moves in out points to current playhead position.
this makes it very fast and easy to do a series of butt edits. (is
that what they're called, forgotten my videotape editing lessons of
also you can drag the in and out points to mark a selection and then
paste over the selection.
you can also add scaled (via edit menu) which stretches or shrinks
what you paste to what you've selected.
you can also select by holding down shift while dragging playhead or
while playing video.
there isn't a timeline but that's because QT is not about linear film
media. (the essays i've published on softvideo discuss this if you're
interested). timelines assume linear continuous media. That's a
rather large canonical assumption to make for something that is
actually more about collage than montage :-)

2. make sure you run the 2 pass and nominate which pass each time
3. this does mean that in QT pro you have to compress TWICE.
if it isn't working and you've got a deadline, i'd suggest just using
Apples mpeg4 codec. single pass but will at least work for you.
and cut and paste in QT pro and you can cut it down.
(I could also mention Umberto Eco's famous observation on dos as
protestant and macs as catholic and that Norway is, um, protestant
(ie, not many macs) but shan't.) ;-)
