So I just finished the fairly big project of creating a video of my adventures at the San Diego Zoo, when I visited there this month.
I spent nearly the entire day there, and saw most all of the zoo.
I took lots of photos, and made many short video clips.
Now, I've put them all together into a 23 minute long video, which I've uploaded to YouTube. This is my first experience creating a video with video editing software, and completing it! It's a lot of work. There are so many options when you're creating a video -- options with how you sequence things, the music/sound you use, narration, how you tell the story, which photos/videos you chose and which you leave out....
I spent 1.5 days or about 14 hours assembling the parts. The first thing I tried to do was save the video to a DVD. After it took my computer 6 to 10 hrs to copy the video to the DVD, I got a "burn completed" message, and then put the DVD in my DVD player to watch it. Nothing. I checked it...it had 4 GB of files on it, but not a single video. Well that was a waste of time!
THen I saved the video to a thumb drive, and from there, uploaded it to YouTube. So I can at least share it that way.
But I want to figure out the kinks in the DVD burning so I can eventually create DVD copies of it.
Beautiful job Deborah. Your camera seems to be quite good. I love the gorillas near the end and the giraffes are gorgeous. Hilarious how that dad baboon uses the little guy's tail as a leash. Thanks for posting!
Thank you! Glad you liked it. I am still working on it...discovered that though my camera is good, my computer is not quite up to the task of doing video editing, which requires a lot of memory. This led to a couple errors in the video and more problems in saving files.
So I will get a new computer soon and see if I can correct the problem. Also will probably re-do the video with a few additional things!
