As I enter this blog post, the place where my video is suppose to display is there, but the video doesn't appear until I publish it. We will all be finding out at the same time! :-)
It isn't a craft video... I chose the closest subject to me when I turned the camera on... :-) ... I just wanted to try the camera and editing process.
I don't remember if I shared about the camera I finally chose to buy just to learn the process. I understand these little cameras are popular for kids to get as gifts so they can film all the exciting things in their lives (for posterity, memories, fun). I wanted a VIVITAR camera that I had seen online when I was searching out prices and options, but when I got to the store (Walmart in Portland, OR) there was only a JAZZ camera available. It was about $20 for the camera, then I had to buy the recording card at almost $10, and a pack of AAA batteries at about $4, just to use it. Still, $30 is a lot less than $300. I will be able to learn with it and then will know more about what I want in a better camera. I really want to work up to Documentary style camera, something like they use in media reporting, with software and all the other related equipment.
I don't use my own computer, so uploading the related files was a problem. I don't think it has been fixed yet. I have to wait for the owner of the computer to get home. :-) When I transferred the original content from the camera to the computer, it worked fine... opening up in a Windows Media file. I tried to load it up again with the plain Window option and was able to save it to my desktop.
My first effort to edit the small portion I saved was a trial and error effort based on what I know about regular files and being willing to lose it to the trash bin. I discovered the title page option, and the credits option, and also found some of the animations. It was fun learning. :-)
I am looking forward to my next effort!
It doesn't look like it is uploading... Maybe it will appear as I work on this.
Looks like I will have to leave you with this photo I took of a sunflower plant still growing... the first time I have seen one grow. :-)
I will keep trying to figure out the video posting process.
