However, I am going to have to hang myself on the Wall of Shame. How do I go about doing that these days?

I have a long, sad tale about my audio failure, too lengthy to go into here, suffice to say it was terrible before the youtube compression, due to unanticipated circumstances, and the extra compression pushed it over the edge to completely useless....my efforts to put lipstick on that pig failed miserably.

Hang me on the Wall. Pour beers over my head.

Lorinda, I bow to your superior production discipline!

It ain't over yet, sister...

I totally sympathize with the audio woes, Meryem; that, and other things have made me think twice about subjecting folks to my flick, as well. I hadn't even considered yet what the compression will do, cuz I'm still waiting for nightfall to get some pick-up shots.

Can't make it a silent movie, eh? Throw some music on that thing and let 'er rip? Or just put up a link to a kinder version like Vimeo in a feedback thread. Like I said a few posts ago, I want to watch some movies! :)

Just emailed my links with hours to spare.

Meryem and any Vegas users: If you are using Vegas, this link led me to get a pretty decent YouTube upload. I set Audio at 256,000, and it is pretty clean.

May be hints there for even non Vegas users.

Done editing, music and the likes, rendering and preparing for the upload part :) Oh, and of course, the initial idea was scraped as it was too close to what someone created for a previous dvc.

Well, I just finished the UWOL and I thought one week would be enough time to finish this one. But, I was mistaken. So let me be the first to walk into the hall of shame, my head down low, tears streaming down my cheeks. Good luck to all of you...

DONE :) Uploaded, sent links in, hmm, 5 hours project :) Can't wait to see how it's received though.

Thanks!

Hmm...I'll give it a try IF I get that far. Thanks, Chris.

This waiting around to get shots I need plus some music that was promised is killing me. Then I made the mistake of looking back on Joseph's bad luck with his computer...now I've really got a knot in my stomach. After all the trouble my friends and I went through I want to get it done on time.

Mugurel, you're not helping matters either, smarty-pants. ;)

Doh! Not going to make it. I needed some LUCK to get this one completed. I should've just done a movie on trying to get the movie done...

How does one get the high quality option? I noticed on some of the videos I've uploaded it's there, but not on others. This current one, which needed all the help it could get, looks like crap and doesn't have it. I'd be okay with a "not quite so sucky" option right now...

Huh. I forgot to email the link so when I went back to YouTube, that option had magically appeared...guess I didn't wait long enough.

BY THE WAY...

Sheila! I'm soooo disappointed--thought you were going to get one in this time. As a matter of fact, it's looking pretty bleak so far all the way around; and this after a huge sign up. Extra kudos to those of you who finished!

My problem was the audio was busted up at the source, but since I was in the darn thing, I couldn't fully monitor the sound...just set the levels and went after it...which under most circumstances would have been ok, but I was using a brand new recording device which, let's just say, it turns out is not ready for prime time.

So I cleaned and scrubbed the audio like a fishwife to make it legible, even with all the preamp noise, but once I added the next layer of compression to youtube, it reverted to illegible.

Ergo, I'm faced with the dilemma of humiliation either way! The Wall or putting up a video which no one but I can understand! Either way, it is shame all around, as far as the eye can see!

I liked this theme, too....

It's the wall for me this time. My son said he could not act and didn't want to do it, so we just spent our time enjoying each others company. Had a good idea too. He flew out yesterday and now my time is up.

Maybe next time.

OOps, I said "hall of shame". Sorry, I meant wall of shame for me too.
