Okay, so I'm almost ready to upload......

Just had to work on one line in the credits, called my wife, because the info was at home.
She was painting the girls room, and couldn't get down to where I had my info stored.

I thought, heck, it's one line, I'll do it when I get home, and then start compressing.

Get home, add the line in the credits....

This is all on my portable hard drive... that I take to work with me.

It looked good at work, and sounded great---to me that is.

So I'm sitting back, watching my laptop getting ready to play the creation in Premiere...

It starts, then..... man what happened.... all my well placed and edited music and other edited sounds.... they either weren't there, or were the wrong piece of audio all together.

I don't have a clue what happened, I closed down the drive, put it in my bag, rode my bike home, had dinner, booted up, and......

I haven't saved anything that got done this evening, so, the drive goes backto work with me, to use on the same computer I edited the video on.

Luckily I did not turn off the computer, and I hope the I.T. guys do any remote updates, that restart the system, and all will be well in the morning.

Luckily it is only,"knock on wood", the audio that is messed up.
Not a good start, but I'm not treading water, yet!

ARRRGH!!!!

P.S.

Premiere did not shut down properly, aand I restarted the project, and then it shut itself down. Do you think.......

ARRRRRGH!!!!

Here is a screen grab of how you might want to go. Adjust for file size from there. Don't forget to go into audio and check box for audio.

Save setting for future use.
Thanks, so much! This is a great help.

Thanks in advance,

Rich, I only shoot SD, and I use Sorenson Squeeze to compress the video.
Not vegas specific, but I can share my settings with you if it helps you.

A tale of wonder...

last night my tale was of woe, but today I am back at work, and all is well in the world of Premiere.

All files played nicely together.

I have converted them, and uploaded them to the site.

I am also converting them, so that they can go tothe Vimeo site, link to follow later.

Thanks. I think the info Chris gave me has me going down the right path. I still have two or three more days of shooting to get everything I need. Hopefully the fog here will cooperate.

Is it proper to post a link to Vimeo,now, for you to see, or should I wait until the contest is closed?

I am thrilled to not be in the shark tank, on my second attempt at this, thus consider me a newbie, with questions.

All criticisms on my work, are considered part of the learning curve.

Sam,
We usually wait until after the deadline to post our feedback threads and the links to the video.
In the feedback thread it is also a good thing to tell a little about your video and the making of it.

Anyway, it's good you finished your entry. I'm not even close to begin the editing of mine yet.

Hi Sam: Trond is exactly right - I pulled your Vimeo link but will restore it once the uploads are linked and ready. It got a little sloppy around these parts with the pre-posting, and I had to get tough with you all. Hope you understand. I'm looking forward to seeing your film, the title is intriguing.

I have an idea for my uwol 14 video and was out to get some shots yesterday.
It consider an old boat house amongst others.
Well, well, well, how stupid can a man be?

1) I forgot my tapes at home.
2) Well forget about the tapes, I didn't even bring with me charged batteries.
3) No I can't just pop home to get more batteries or tape, as long as I have to make a 45 min one way trip with the ferry.

Can you believe it?
Do you have a first grade for uwolers Mereyem?

Geir Inge, you didn't bring a laptop to capture directly to the hdd? Maybe there is still a tiny little juice left in the camera's battery?

Anyway, except for this I hope your trip still complied with rule 11. :)
Hope you can get your shots later.

Meryem,


Sorry for all the trouble.

I got exicted, like a schoolboy, at the fact that I actually acomplished this.

I will be a good boy from now on...

Thanks for your patience.

It's not a problem, Sam, and I certainly understand wanting to show your stuff once you get it done. All part of the UWOL fun n games.

Don't have time to go into it all today but i've been in Monterey since last Friday and haven't shot a lick of video. :( It's not because I haven't seen anything worth while to film, just the opposite. Spent over $1000 trying to get things so I could shoot and no dice.

So, no Cali footage for this round! :(

geez, Geir, that kind of stuff never, ever happens to me!

all of my shoots occur flawlessly!

actually, I most enjoy forgetting my tripod plate, my XLR cables, and enough AA batts for my battery sucking wireless system....those rank high on my list of dumb mistakes.
