Here, ladies and gentlemen, is my first attempt at a video blog entry.
I apologize for the words emblazoned across the video. I have to convert the .asf files which my video recorder creates into a more workable format and this is the program I am trying out. I assume if I buy it the statement will go away. Not sure I will buy it though, as you see in the beginning the conversion of motion did not work very well.
However, I am impressed so far with windows movie maker. I'm sure there are more advanced programs out there but for the moment it seems to do everything I need.
My video camera is a Samsung SCD107. It's a nice, basic camera and I'm still learning to use it. You'll notice that the auto white balance did not work too well at least in one section. Since filming this I've discovered that white balance can be done manually but I've yet to try it.
As well there are certain filming tricks I'm going to have to relearn so that sections don't start too early or cut off parts but hopefully that will all get more polished as I go along (assuming I try this again).
Hopefully it's not too painful.
