Any chance to see some pics of your rig Leigh? Good sales pitch, but it would be nice to see the product too.

Also, no way am I downloading a 216MB demo video. you've GOT TO make it smaller.

Hi Mikko,

I am willing to mail you a copy of dvd disk at my expense. I am not willing to lose the video quality.

Would you like me to do that?

What video format will you prefer?

TIA

Regards
Leigh

Leigh,

I tried to download two different videos but to no avail. Can you check your system for problems.

Tery

BTW What does it look like? This will be the LAST time I ask.

Hi Tery,

Maybe there are lots of people try to download the file and isp server can't cope with that. Maybe you can try later.

Maybe your ISP could cope better if the amount of data beeing transfered (file size) was less?

And that's the last time I'm going to coment on your compression. Right now your video is 0 quality as I can't see it.

Leigh, you have alot of repetitive as well as other shots that really don't need to be in the video. You also have alot of blank shots that are really unnecessary. This alone will reduce the size. Try and cut them out if you can. Oh yeah, don't forget some running shot will be in order I hope? I just have to see how weell it operates while running. That should make it challenging :)

Another thing. If you tend to do an introduction video, don't do it at night. Do it in a studio or get lots of light. Another thing. I don't want to get into it but I suggest you get someone who can do the introduction for you. Yes I'm talking about the language part. I'm not trying to be negative but it is hard to understand what you are saying and this tend s to put people off. Just a tip my friend. Please don't take it to heart. :)

Also, it's nice to finally see the rig itself. Yep, it's original alright but again there are still some instances that make me unsure. I think you guys will understand whe you finally see the clip.

Thanks for the suggestion.

I have uploaded some photos on my website www.smootharm.com for your viewing.

It is midnight now and I don't have time to make a small video tonight. I have to go to sleep now.

Leigh,

Thanks for letting us see the rig. Is that you in the picture?

When I try to download the video I only get about 3 seconds of it each time.

Hi Tery,

Yes, it is me in the picture.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my website.

You need to use some download manager software application to download the video file, because the file size is not very small.

Regards
Leigh

Leigh,

Are you going to make a smaller file so I can see what you have been up to?

Also, it seems like many of your pictures are the same. Did you intend to do that?

Tery
