i’ve noticed that there are a lot of short freestyle/muni/street/trials videos on this site’s gallery. i was thinking i could take it upon myself to make a video that is a compilation of a good bunch of these shorts.
there are only some things that i need before i can start:
#1)a way to port WMV files into quicktime, as my edit program is on a mac. #2) permission from the rider/film-person to use their video #3) a link from said person to their video in the gallery/on the internet. #4) a good name for the video.
if you all could post your answers to these questions above in respective order (#1, 2, 3, and 4). that would be nice.
I’m willing to e-mail you a little freestyle footage. I have a Mac, so everything’s already in Quicktime. If you’re interested, PM me your e-mail address, and how many minutes of footage you’d like. (up to about five.)
#1) I have the WMV player for mac. i cannot port those types of files into my editing program. if, however, i can get a two-way porter dealy-thing, i can port stuff into quicktime format for editing, and i can port it back into WMV for posting in the gallery/on internet.
I can also burn into DVD format for anyone who’s willing to pay 10 or 15 bucks for the shipping and cost of DVDs.
Thank you, jsm. my email is abbabibble(at)gmail(dot)com if you wish to email the footage. i can review it and selct the things i want/ people want.
just please don’t send me files over a few megabytes (more than 10) because my email can’t handle it.
i too use a mac, go macs!!!
i have some footage from me and my friend riding at northstar, and some of it is pretty good, i also have some of corbin, bevan, and some others riding there
search the forums for “northstar” and you should find my videos
you have my permission to use them as long as you say the rider’s name in the credits, just PM and ask me to email you whichever ones u want
DUDE! where do you live? i’m down in the south bay area (san jose -ish), but my friend who lives down here lives up in truckee w/ his mom sometimes,
we should ride together if i go up there again with him
i would suggest attempting to get RAW footage files from the original riders you were looking to use clips of, the format they are in as soon as they are captured from the tape. this way you don’t have to sacrifice quality from yet another generation loss of re-encoding the video from an already encoded state, and you don’t have to fret over being able to import the footage to edit with. just my 2 cents, as one of the things i’ve come to be greedy with concerning video editing is the quality of the original clips [this would also knock out render times and RAM usage when editing with RAW files]
