can you do the thing jay with the vid, please.

Hi All, bit more time so here are the specs for those interested.

  1. The film was shot on a Sunday- first decent ride out day. It was around Buttercrambe bridge Just outside York.( capital of UK prior to Londinium Muscleing in!)
    2.The shoot took 1.5 hours I did it without anyone else and just tagged along behind a number of riders. ( Later that day, the road was closed due to a bike fatality-unfortunately the bike survived!)
    3.I used 2 cameras (Sony mini-DV)-on various clamps and a bullet cam (sony)attached to another Sony mini-DV.A total of 3 cameras
    4.Although the option is there to use LANC controls, I opted for “always on”-editing later.
    5.I ended up with 3 tapes of 45 minutes riding- here is where the fun started- timing front,rear and other shots so as a “red” car passed- it came from the back within 1 second- believe me, it is hard to do for someone like me who swims in the lower end of the gene pool!
    6.As a rule of thumb, I am told-60minutes worth of footage produces 06 minutes of finished product- Im glad I do not do this for a living-I was worse than this marker!
    7.I used Adobe Premiere and Pinnacle 8 to edit, swapping between the two programmes as each has different qualities- (Pinnacle is keen on reduction of weight of the final video- making it suitable for Google, while Adobe Premiere- although expensive, is great to add effects, speed, split screen and zoom in facilities, to name a few.
    8.Editing took around 09 hours- It’s research and will benefit future customers (we design,host and search engine submit Websites and are currently designing for a Motorcycle instructor)
  2. Other factors to consider are the Music- I did the ride and returned to select the music from a collection of MP3s.-An alternative route is to go out with a theme based on a prior selected tune- executing each change of “mood”- as the tempo rises and falls- ( examples being clutch changes, gear changes etc.)Here I chose Rush by Motorcycle- corny I know, but the change in speed made for an interesting ride.
    Others I have used are The Cure- again mood setting and evocative/alternative- not something you might usually expect from a “biker video”.
    10.Time factors at work prevented me from adding an introduction title- but its right to give credit to the song creator etc- saving having to write such a long soliloquy

If I can be of any extra help- please let me know - LondonCaller was the chap who helped me - I hope he returns as he has been away a while
