Tragic

January 22, 2008

Rest in peace friend, and thank you.

ready for the dialog

January 21, 2008

I adjusted the Robin cape so it’ll lay back a  bit rather than just wrap all the way around and cover the whole costume.  It was like that but the first stitch in it broke so I had to resew it.  Now, I’m ready to film.

foam and extension

January 20, 2008

I got a long cord for my mic.  Surprisingly it’s a headphone extention.  Anyway I only need to adjust the robin cape slightly and I’m all set to film the Robin diolog.  Also rather than try to duct tape the hell out of the mic to the golf ball retreaver, I just cut a piece […]

Another Test DVD

January 17, 2008

This one has a custom background.  And has my clips with lowered darkness with and without the neatvideo program as well as a movement screentest and a sound check.  Looks good.  God, I love that pic of me!!!

mic

January 17, 2008

I just got my stereo microphone, it sounds good, but I clearly need an extention as you can see.  I’m also making another Test DVD that will show more movement to see if NeatVideo holds up with and without reduded lighting. .

DVD tests

January 12, 2008

I used the test footage to make a test DVD.  I used MPEG-2 as I heard it was the best and encoded it in 8 different formats, thus, 8 different tracks on this disk.  I have options to customize the menues but I just left them on the default one, hence it says "island" on […]

Sound

January 10, 2008

Here is a nice site with an example using my exact camera and a mic that is REALLY a deal.  It’s so low in price I’ll be carefully reveiwing the reviews on amazon.com http://www.camcorderinfo.com/bbs/t127292.html

more on sound

January 10, 2008

Ok, this is promising, It’s from the same company that made my camera too.  So I bet this is what I need, down side?  It’s like $150.  Damn!  But sound is important and having only one speaker work is way ghetto, so I’ll window shop for more but odds are this is close to what I’ll […]

sound check

January 9, 2008

I plugged my external mic into my camera, and did some testing as seen below.  The good news is, it gets good sound from a far distance away.  The down side is, and I’m not sure yet why, I am only picking up on 1 channel.  Like when wearing headphones sound only comes out one […]

more steps as always

January 4, 2008

Extra story boards are done!! Now…   I want to make a test DVD that I can put in a home DVD player and watch several different formats of some test footage.  This will show me which is best, and also if that Neat Video program will hold up on a normal TV screen.  The […]
