Great First Night

Lights on last night and the LOR II show went great, start to finish.

I didn't bother trying a startup or shutdown musical sequence, but I know that will come soon.

Met some great people who stopped to watch and drank some fantastic Christmas beers!

Thanks, everyone.

Looks great, when's the next video???

Also, wondering how you are putting audio on you videos? I have a couple of cameras, but having troubles figuring out how I want the audio for it. Yours sounds great :)

Thanks, Chuck, and good question. I filmed that around midnight last night so I definitely did not have outdoor speakers on.

After filming the sequence looping a few times I digitized the video and entirely deleted the recorded sound. Then I synced up the sequence's sound file (wav or mp3) in my video editing program and exported it as a new video file in youtube's favorite format. Here's a link to a how-to on that.

If that doesn't make sense I am happy to explain further.

I use Final Cut to edit video, but any video editor that lets you replace the sound track will work.

Cheers,
Charlie

Charlie, The girls sound adorable and your 'Radio-Voice' is spot on.

I'm going to have to quiz you about how you did the three arches; very neat effect. How many channels are you using on each one? Is the support custom or something you bought?

Steve, thanks for the kind words.

The best how-to for the arches I've found is


I use 7 channels per arch as mine are only 10' long and stand about 2' tall.

Ahh, the old "Wrap the Lights around a piece of PVC Pipe Trick", eh?

I'll have to add that to my future bag o' tricks/wish list.

(umm, honey? How 'bout we shoot for 64 channels next year instead of 32? Honey? Sweetie? Watcha doin' with that frying pan?)

I grabbed the first DVD my eyes fell on from the rack in living room, I think it was "Cars". I edited quite a bit out in the middle of the sound file. The "fixing", tinkering went on for much longer.

Probably a dumb question...but what software do you use to capture the audio from the DVD?

Not dumb at all. "Audio Hijack" from http://www.rogueamoeba.com
