recap clip to share

hi everyone! here's a recap to share. the groom was dressed in white so i couldn't resist blowing out the color correction a bit. the actual movie is not so diffused, just the recap. comments welcome.

weird playback

I like the shots. It did seem to play back weird on my computer. I especially like the jump cuts on the lawn. That was really well done. Two parts I didn't like were the scene of her on the lawn with the dress spread out. That isn't a great shot, bad camera angle. When the movie ends all three have a bad look on their face. You need a fantastic ending. About 20 frames back from the end was better.

great insight mike. thanks for the comments!

when you say it plays back weird, please elaborate. is it the codec, your computer or the editorial?

thanks again for the crit, very valuable advice.

Stuttering ?

I think it's the codec AJ. Even after being completely downloaded it seemed to stutter, mainly at the transitions. I'll take a look at it on my Mac and see if it is the same.

hi paul. i used to do them in fcp by hand, keyframing color correction (normal to blown out whites and mids) and gaussian blur filters (0 to 100) on the clip and a duplicate clip with an "additive" viewing mode keyframed from 0% to 100% opacity.

thanks to this forum, i found out that there's a free plugin for it called "flashframe" from "too much too soon". check it out here: http://www.mattias.nu/plugins/

Very nice A.J. I was very impressed with the quality and how it played on my computer. What are you using to compress the video, and could you share your settings?
Many Thanks

AJ. That was a nicely done clip. I like the transitions you used. Great composition as well

I just concur with an earlier post that suggested you fade out sooner.

Cheers.
