Day 17A~Sunday at The Rock, The Video

Please push PLAY!! It's not a very good picture until you do.


I took several still shots and some video clips at church. When I returned home, I enhanced the still shots and decided which clips would work for the video, "Sunday at the Rock."


I opened each video clip separately in Adobe Premier Elements 2.0 (purchased several years ago) and imported the QuickTime (.mov) files (taken with my Nikon Coolpix S7c camera) to Windows Media Player files (.avi). (It's the same as converting the files.)


I did all the tasks of putting together the video, "Sunday at the Rock," in Windows Movie Maker (free with a Windows computer). When I was finished, after 3-1/2 hours, I saved it to my computer. It opens with Windows Media Player. I uploaded that file to flickr. The quality of the conversion from .mov to .avi using Adobe Premier Elements 2.0 was much better than the conversion done with QuickTime on yesterday's video.


While making this movie, I learned many things. I added several still shots to the movie. I added some music (from PictureProject samples that came with a Nikon camera) and adjusted the volume of the music behind the movie. I added titles for each section (Sunday School, Praise and Worship, The Message, and Sunday at the Rock) with a transition for each section and its title.


Because I was never quite satisfied I continued to edit by trimming music, repositioning still shots and video clips. I'm actually pleased with this video even though I wasn't quite sure what I would do with the different pieces until I began to "play with them" on my computer. The only thing I don't like is the still photo that shows up in flickr when the movie finished uploading.
