Vin
The two looks were slightly modified Magic Bullet: Editors (Vegas 6) looks. The cool blue one was titled "Berlin" and the warm one was called "Warm & Fuzzy". I enjoy using the effects from Magic Bullet from time to time but don't quite like the fact that it multiplies the required render time by aprox. 8x.

The new Magic Bullet Editors is supposed to have better performance and actually use your video card hardware to help speed up the render process. I haven't tested it out to see if the claims are true.

Thanks all for the kind words. It was one of my most difficult "credits montages" to shoot. Partly because of the time crunch, and the other the sheer size of the bridal party.

Usually I take a minute or so with EACH bridal party member to do individual shots but due to what I described above I opted for a more generic line walk reminicent of the Reservior Dogs shot. It's an easy way to roll a few seconds on each bridal party member and get the entire shoot done in one take in the matter of a couple of minutes (litterally). The unfortunate part was I rushed so fast I only had as little as 3-4 usable seconds of certain people.

I tried my best to make it "exciting" and fun despite the shortcoming on my part capturing it. The clients really enjoyed the finished product despite the fact I felt it was a bit more rythmically predictable and repetitive than some of my other "credits" pieces.

Thanks again for watching.

Hey Glen,


Just wondering what camera your using for this. I tried to spot it in your last post (the one where you were actually in the footage with the glidecam), but your cameo in that one was just a little too fast.

Oh, and about this post...
Do I have to say it? As always - SUPER job with the highest regards!

Totally agree with that.

Whenever the couple specifies some (what I consider) inappropriate song or songs included in the life story or wedding video, I always include "Musical Selections by [bride & groom]" in the rolling credits to disassociate myself from that part of it. Nothing more grating on the nerves than trying to sync video to an annoying tune.
