Egypt Part 2

So here is part 2 of my Egypt trip. The video is about 7 minutes and highlights all the major sites I visited while there. I think you'll find it feels more like a mini documentary set to music, but my intention was to show friends and family the places we saw without boring them to tears.

File is about 167 MB and is an mp4 encode to save bandwidth.

Shot all of this 1080i (60i) and was deinterlaced in the encode.

Excellent! Really nice footage. It's amazing how those stone carvings have stood the test of time. I never realised there were so many of them though. You must have been out shooting non stop the whole trip?

Thank you! It's funny actually, when I look at the sites edited together it all seems to run together somewhat. Mark it up to a very aesthetically consistent culture.
I did shoot a lot - partly because I kept saying to myself, "man, won't that look cool in hi-def?" But I do video work for a living, so it just sort of happens that way.

Excellent again Mikon, what are you editing this all together with? You might have said in some thread, but I cannot recall now..

Thnks for the compliment, Norm. I've been cutting with FInal Cut Pro. Been using it for about 5 years now.

Mikon, when you export the clips that you are posting, what settings are you using?

I had been struggling for a while to get a decent export and stumbled on a thread somewhere which said that if you have Quicktime, you can export a file using the "Apple TV" setting. You can't modify the settings on the preset, but it does a decent job of compression. Essentially, it turns it into an MP4 file.

I hope this helps.

That does help, so your Egypt clips have been Apple TV exports.. They do look pretty good.. thanks for the feedback...

I was actually pleasantly surprised by the compression as I had been trying for a while to get a decent combination of file size and compression. This was the better than my other attempts.
