Re: UWOL 36 - The Last Fine Day before Winter by Tim Lewis

Hi Bryce

With only a free Vimeo account I don't put out the highest quality to Vimeo as it quickly runs over my data limit. I got FCPX to out put 540p, not quite sure how it ended up at 720, but I got that too when I watched it. I will have to check the settings on the share destination.

I put the Master File out at 1080p. The Macbook Air did it surprisingly quickly.

Cheers

Tim

Re: UWOL 36 - The Last Fine Day before Winter by Tim Lewis

Interesting Tim,
You could always try Youtube as well. I too don't have a pro account with Vimeo & am limited to Vimeo's upload limit. I have found recently though, that Youtube not only doesn't have those same limits, but also the videos that i have uploaded were encoded without having to wait. I also encoded a video in 4k & uploaded it & it looks fantastic! Maybe worth a try?
Regards,
Bryce

Re: UWOL 36 - The Last Fine Day before Winter by Tim Lewis

Hi Tim
really liked how this built up from the beginning and introduced the setting one bit at a time. The colours were great. Was the vertical jitter to do with the tripod?. I think with respect to the story it felt like it was building up to something, and then we saw general activity of people enjoying the park. Nothing wrong with that, but it would be great to focus in on one person or a couple to see what they do in the park. Obviously you'd have to organise this (the tricky part), as harassing people by following them around with a camera doesn't tend to go down well. Maybe the person going fishing, or someone training could be interesting - just a thought I had. A very enjoyable entry as it stands.

Re: UWOL 36 - The Last Fine Day before Winter by Tim Lewis

Thanks Andrew for your considered advice. You are right, that would have been a better way to end the film.

The vertical jitter was having the OIS on while on the tripod (not recommended).

Re: UWOL 36 - The Last Fine Day before Winter by Tim Lewis

Tim,

It was a very pleasant watch, perhaps titled serenity before winter!!!

I enjoyed it very much

If I had any criticism it would be alot of it seemed like a slide show, particularly the first half.

by the way, you are quite good with your camera!!!!! turn the ois off and leave it there Easy one to forget if you are prone to use it. then you get home to edit and curse at yourself. I have done that to many times!!!! I just leave it off all the time now.

thank you for taking the time and sharing your nook in this fine country of ours!!

Re: UWOL 36 - The Last Fine Day before Winter by Tim Lewis

Hi Cat, thanks for the welcome, everyone here is so kind it is easy to be generous.

Dale, thanks for taking the time to watch and comment. Yes it could have been confused for a slideshow, except there was movement within the frame (most of the time). I prefer to have steady shots, so they are all taken from a tripod. I have only my cheaper tripods in Canada and the pan/tilt on them is not so good as with which I would be pleased, so I tend not to move them. (I am hoping to get a slider for Christmas, which would increase camera movement options.)

OIS was missed in Settings when the camera reset from lack of use. I never use it otherwise.

This is why I got out while the weather was good.

Why does this BB software that the forum uses have so much trouble displaying the videos????

Re: UWOL 36 - The Last Fine Day before Winter by Tim Lewis

Yep, we have had it pretty easy this year, Kevin. I filmed the "Last Fine Day" on the fourth of November, expecting that Winter would come crashing in any day soon. It has only been in January that we have had anything much in the way of snow. The video above was shot on the eleventh of January, so a pretty mild winter so far. Middle of January? Winter is nearly over before it began.

Re: UWOL 36 - The Last Fine Day before Winter by Tim Lewis

Been a weird year here in Iowa so far. Had 10" of snow in November then maybe another inch in December.
It was 45 F yesterday and will be -1 F Sunday
