A good idea

But, a little pricey.
If they are still around, I'll try them this fall.

This is good news!

I've spent a fair amount of time this past month working with Vegas Video 3. I've had this program for nearly a year and basically never touched it because. . . well. . . I have two really good midi/audio recording programs. Vegas Video does nothing with midi, and my studio is total a midi setup!

Until I decided to explore the video capabilities of Vegas Video 3!

I'm one happy camper with this program with regards to the video editing I've accomplished this past month (simple as it may be)! I will, of course, score any incidential music using the other programs. But then I'll mixdown all sound/music and video using Vegas Video 3. This program has not crashed on me once. . . yet! (Watch, now that I've said this, my computer is going to blow up!)

Vegas Video 4?!?!? I'll work extra overtime to shell out $$$ for that upgrade! It is also my understanding that Sonic Foundry will be offering a DVD authoring program as well. . . DVD Architect.

This is great news!

Here's a link to the news on Vegas 4.0

Mac Pro (12-core 3.33GHz): OS X 10.11.6; 32 GBs RAM; NVIDIA Quadro K5000; 8 internal SSDs; 2 external Raid set-ups via eSATA; MOTU 2408 MK3; various audio/video programs

Nice link, Ed. For a better version of the DVD Architect screen shot on the site, go to its actual URL:

New York Underground Film Festival seeks Filmmakers

This was posted on a list I subscribe to.


Hello everyone,

I'm currently organizing a panel discussion about DVD authoring and distribution for The New York Underground Film Festival ( ) and The Association of Independent Video and Filmmakers ( ) this March. I am currently trying to find someone to speak on the panel who is a filmmaker that has made a movie specifically for the DVD format. I mean someone who organized the production, technique, and style of their work to fit in with the technical specs of the DVD format and features like multiple angles, multiple soundtracks, scripting, menus, and subtitles. I'm looking for someone who has done more than just produced a film and then encoded it into MPEG2 and added subtitles and commentary in post. I guess you could say that I'm looking for content that is more interactive than a traditional film.
Ideally, this person has made content that would fit in a film festival environment - especially, at the NYUFF, which is known for avant-garde and challenging fare. Any marketing, industrial, or event content will not really be appropriate. And, yes, I am aware that much of that type of content utilizes the advanced features of the DVD spec.
Basically, I'm looking for evidence that DVD technology can change the actual filmmaking form and not just distribution methods. I'm hoping that someone on this list is, or knows someone who is, producing something that fits within these guidelines. If so, and they'll be in New York City on March 8, I'd like to hear more about the project.

I should also specify that is not a "call for entries" for the festival. Inclusion on this panel would not mean that your work would screen at the festival outside of the panel.

Thanks very much.

Greg Gilpatrick

New Sales Channel for Your Content

I can't recall how I got there but but I can tell you how to do it:
This group, which includes developers of the original Media Cleaner app, will convert your tape master to DVD for on demand production and delivery. They set up your e-store, complete with movie trailer, handle packaging and payment and mail you your share at month end. It's a very interesting alternative for those looking to sell content but unwilling to risk building inventory in advance of sales. They ship within 50 states but not yet outside the US, and although you can live anywhere as the content creator, you need a US Tax ID and a US postal address to get paid.

Before you try them ask to see their sales figures and their web statistics - how many hits do they get for instance?

If these figures are not large you'd be better off trying the same thing yourself.

Distribution and promotion is a complex field (and expensive) and cannot really be served best across only one medium!

I bought it last week, as some of my friends shoot footage for me (with their cameras) and when I edit this into my cameras footage their hiss is much louder.

It seems to drop the hiss and noise but it also drops all the levels (dialogue included) so its hard to tell how good it is just yet. Need to do smoe more experimenting.

Anyone else tried it yet?
