broadband connection. Thanks.

If you use a PC and Download Accelerator, then it will download the whole thing to disk for you.

Streaming Links

Are the folks that are having trouble viewing these links cutting and pasting them into your browsers? Some Mac users experience difficulties with the Windows Media player. Let me know what you're doing. These links are valid!

Downloading Streaming Media

I do not think that you can download streaming media to a hard disk. From what I understand, streaming media is a progressive temporary download to your cache that is terminated when the file is completed. If anyone is able to do it please let me know about it. Thanks.

James, I have both the the full files on my hard drive at this very moment. I use a PC, and have Download Accelerator installed. I just enter the URL into internet explorer, and Download Accelerator simply starts downloading the .asf file for me (Yes .asf, not asx as the real full version is called filename.asf)
IE pops up with an error saying it can't open the file, and it has the little opening media player in the left hand pane but DA just preempts it and downloads the whole thing.

Good luck!

Cheers
Aaron

As a newbie I am extremely impressed and hope to someday create somehting a fraction as good as your video. Some stupid questions I have. You say done with Premiere. Did you need any add-ins to do anything, does Pemire allow for the 3-way split screen witht he 3 additiona source videos? Can you tell me what your use to render your outputs?

The video streamed just fine for me--no problems.

My only comment/question would be: Was that a red shirt sleeve flapping on the right edge of the frame in the shots of the group walking down the alley?

Cutting with Premiere

This video was cut with Premiere 5.1c RT straight out of the box using all stock filters. The multiple screens are just 3 layers of video using the motion filter zoom and then placing the reduced pictures in their desired positions as well as applying the rotation within the same filter. I must say that my system is very high end and is built strictly for fast/efficient post production so I have a bit of an advantage with speed and accuracy over a typical off the shelf box. As far as software, again, it's the same as anyone else has. It WILL take time to learn alot of these tricks and workarounds of this software. For its value and level, Premiere can do some amazing things. If you want to see other uses of Premiere with heavy effects and graphics hit the link below and view both of the Expo spots. That was fun to do and took a while to compose but, the knowledge I have now is invaluable. The big screen monitors that you will see don't exist. They were created with Premiere and a bundled version of Inscriber CG.

Object in frame

Yes this was a p.a. holding a bounce board for light. I have since found that the stock viewfinder underscans therefore not giving a true frame reference so I didn't see it while shooting. In addition I was using the 3:1 lens which widened the perspective even further. I did see it in post but was rushed for the cut and it slipped through. I will have to fix it with a simple zoom in to crop it out. It makes me ill every time I see it. You got me!!

James, I wasn't trying to get you, honestly. The reason I asked was because I've experienced the same problem--the viewfinder showing less than camera's recording. Very frustrating!

As a result of this, I now use a monitor and still I move a tad tighter, just for good measure.

Jeff,

Thanks for the info. I built a high end (back in March) system with P4 2.2GHz system, 1GB RDRAM, 2 x 40GB RAID 0 for OS, 2 x 80GB RAID 0 for capture, and 2 x 80GB RAID 1 for edit/render and have been getting started. I alwasy jump in neck deep, don't beleive in wasting too much playing at the bottom end, so plan on moving up to the higher mid-level that Premiere seems to fit. Been getting used to the GL2 and stocking up on some minor accessories. Will add to the list as I go and have my first (gratis) job, a friends wedding next month so we'll see how it goes.
