Hey well done Per.

Looks like I got runner up...WOW did not expect that!
Took abit of time to get the shots but edited it up with EDIUS in about 1 hour .

Encoding it out from the 1440/1080 timeline was very easy as well with Procoder Express.

One thing I learned is to turn your steady shot off when on a tripod for timelapes stuff.

Congrats to everyone else that sent work in.

Thanks again.

The prize couldn't have gone to a nicer guy or a better videographer.
Congratulations.

haha, I think I was a little high on mountain dew at the time... So maybe it was not such a good thing to say... lol.

Yes, congrats Per, Paul, Gordon, & Matt, wonderful videos.

Thanks all!

I must say that I haven't any words! I really haven't expected the first price!

I have got a real flu, so maybe that was the price I had to pay ;-) I'm just up writing this and back to bed.

Stay warm!

Well done Per

Per I have to agree with everybody that you had a beautiful piece of work there. Take care.

Gordon Hoffman
PS Thanks everyone for the second runner up place. I think my hat will fit a little tighter for the next while which maybe a good thing in this country.

Hi Paul, the competition is hard you know ;-)

One thing I noticed was that the sun goes the wrong way in your place compared to mine!
Prove that the Mother Earth is round and not flat huuu!

One more tip: In my timelaps where you can see the sea (at the end of the film), I have been doing a trick in my NLE. If your NLE supports multiple clips in the timeline you can put two equal clips on top of the other. Then use a 2D tool on the upper clip to cut away the sea, do a timelaps on this clip to speed up the motion. The lower clip remains its original speed, just cut it to the lenght of the upper clip with the timelaps.
When you render this you got the desired effect, where the sea is almost calm but the clouds are speeding through the sky!

Hopefully you understand what I tried to explain?

Per,

I am so pleased you got the nod from the judeges. My top four were yours, marlo, railback and wags. I thought they all had something special!!


Thanks for the trick on the ocean sky applications. Will try that at some point in time.


congratulations again.

Thanks for puttin me in your top 4 Dale. I know I sucked the big egg before I even uploaded it so I didn't even bother to make a feedback thread.

Per, I really like your idea about combining two clips to make the sea calm and the sky go sailing by.

I'll have to give that a shot sometime. I usually record the timelapse right to my camera so I normally don't have a normal speed clip. I'll have to try it sometime though if I know I want that effect.

Congrats again. Beautiful film!

I sometimes forget things, but I don't feel like an old person ;)

In my eagerness to give my regards to my friend Per Johan for winning this first UWOL-challenge, I completely forgot about you, the other participants, forgive me for being such a norwegian patriot :)
I must say I have learned a lot from this UWOL-contest - and:
from your videos, from your feedback, from your tips, and:
though all of this has taken place in "cyberspace", I can't stop feeling that I've get to know you, and like to call you my friends :) this forum's got a very civilian attitude, somthing I appreciate very much, I think if you love nature you will become a better person ;)
so know I'm looking forward to the second challenge - wondering what Meryem and the "crew" might put up as theme, just can't wait :)
to Per Johan, I wish you well and hope to see you soon, we have to take a trip to Runde and "shoot" some birds, this time of year the seabirds comming in from the sea, and at Runde there are thousands of them.
