Hello I'm Chris Weagel, an independent video artist, just outside Detroit MI. I run http://www.human-dog.com and since January 13 of this year I've been video blogging, the entries of which can be seen here: http://www.human-dog.com/exper/journal1.html I post a new video every tuesday, and maintain a limited (roughly 6 weeks) archive of the video posts. It's limited because there are other non-vidblog videos on the site which require the server space. The posts are in a mix of QT and MP4 formats, and can all be viewed with Quicktime. Let me know what you think. Chris Weagel http://www.human-dog.com [View]

What at Siggraph, in your opinion, will be interesting to vbloggers and/or video creators? If it sounds really good, I might be able to hop a plane from northern CA, but I think it would be hard to swing at this point. I'm sure I'm not the only one on the list that would be interested in a "trip report" or, better yet, vblog entry(ies) about the show. -- --------------------------------------------------------------------------- M.

How I would edit a multi camera shoot

By Steve Garfield | Steve Garfield <steve@...> | sgarfield
August 5, 2004 | Post #556 | Topic #546

How I would edit a multi camera shoot: Everyone starts their video cameras, and then one person makes a loud hand clap. When you digitize the video, you lay it down on multiple tracks. Then you line all the videos up on that one clap. If one of the audio tracks is better than all the others, you can use that one and then shut off the others. Next you scrub through the video to choose which shots you want. If at any time you want to select the other audio for clarity, you can cut out the main audio track and let the secondary track show through. That's just how I would do it in FCP. Other editors have a multi camera function that would make it even easier. --Steve On Aug 5, 2004, at 4:38 AM, M.

My process for posting vidblogs isn't too complicated, but it's not really geared towards any specific vidblogging protocol or process. I shoot a bunch of footage over the course of a week. Most of the time I like to have a central idea for each entry, sometimes I happen to stumble onto something. Other times, I re-edit or experiment with video from other projects. I then capture the footage into Final Cut Pro 4 on a G5 mac, edit it and otherwise arrange it to my liking. Then I export using Apple's Compressor, with usually the MP4 broadband preset, sometimes a QT preset. Occasionally I make up my own MP4 settings, but the stock presets seem to work OK. Then I set up the html on the blog and upload the file. That's it. As far as philosophy on vidblogging? I come from a videomaking background, so my eye is towards that end. While I think there is a good deal of value in seeing and hearing a blogger deliver their entry, I think many experienced text bloggers that have tried a video blog have blown it. Sure there may be times when seeing the blogger's talking head sitting at his/her computer is appropriate, but it's missing out on the full potential. Video is about seeing, it's about the imagery, and it's about providing something that simple text cannot deliver. Getting the process of vidblogging to be easier/faster is great,... [View]

Hi Chris, Great message! I just watched your current post, 08/03/04 Vlog #029: "Permit No. PGS04725". LOVED IT. Why is 'Garrett's House Tour' still the big picture on your page?

This might be easier. Use a camera flash on stage or at a point all the cameras can see at the beginning of every tape. Just line up your tracks in the editing prog. of you choosing, and keep the best audio. The flash is probably more invisible to the audience than a hand clap depending on your shoot. --- In videoblogging@yahoogroups.com, Steve Garfield <steve@o...> wrote: > How I would edit a multi camera shoot: > > Everyone starts their video cameras, and then one person makes a loud > hand clap. > > When you digitize the video, you lay it down on multiple tracks. > > Then you line all the videos up on that one clap. > > If one of the audio tracks is better than all the others, you can use > that one and then shut off the others. > > Next you scrub through the video to choose which shots you want. > > If at any time you want to select the other audio for clarity, you can > cut out the main audio track and let the secondary track show through. > > That's just how I would do it in FCP. > > Other editors have a multi camera function that would make it even > easier. > > --Steve > > > On Aug 5, 2004, at 4:38 AM, M.

Greetings and salutations to all! I just wanted to introduce myself as an upcoming videoblogger. I have been given a crash course on "everything I need to know about vlogging" by my friend, Nathan Peters (www.modernsingledad.com)and I'm excited to say the least. Nathan has been kind enough to lend me a camera so I can begin getting some video together. So far I haven't had much time, but I do have my blogsite and feedburner all setup, so once I get a vlog, I'll be ready to start syndicating. I will post here once I get the first vlog published, so you can comment or complain as you see fit. I look forard to being part of this community and checking out even more of your vlogsites. Hope to see you all soon (and have you see me) Jay [View]
