Dutch Adobe user group: 10-10-2007 interactive video

Today I went to the Dutch adobe user group meeting in Amsterdam. It was all about interactive video and stuff that has to do with it. A very interesting meeting and especially in the end an inspiring meeting. Before the break it was more a company commercial for NetMaster by Mark de Jong. It’s not really what I found necessary on this meeting. If I wanted this information I go look for it on the web. But never the less probably a good company for streaming servers and more. Waldo Smeets was also there telling us about flash media server 3 and adobe mediaplayer. These presentations where good as expected by Waldo but some disappointments here about FMS 3 not supporting building custom items to it and is just like FMS 2 it that way. What it has is an encrypted rtmp connection and better performance. But it looks to me like a 2.5 version instead of a 3 version. (to be honest this too could all be looked up at the web) Continued

First attempt in video editing

See here my first attempt in working with video. What I tried to do here is creating a trailer for the movie the bourne supremacy. I edited it with a mashup from depeche mode and something from the movie the matrix.

I’m pretty pleased with the last part of the trailer, say starting at 1:26. It has a nice flow from then on but the first part I’m not so sure about. Since it is a long trailer I think the first part as it is would loose people. So I’m probably changing that in the upcoming week. Let me know what you think of it in the comments, it would be a great help!

Learning vids

At work we are now trying to specialize in a couple of regions to improve our flash/flex skills and building cooler products. We have 3d, interaction and video & sound. Video & sound is going to be my field of work the couple of months. I have absolutly no knowledge about video, besides watching and collecting movies that is, so i’m looking forward in learning about all that.

We are going to start with our first assignment next week and we’ll try to build a trailer of a excisting movie. In this way we try to learn the basics of programs like premiere, final cut pro and after effects. I’ll try bto build a trailer for the bourne supremacy movie. I have a cool mash-up for the background music. So i’m hoping for the best.

If you have pointers feel free to comment! It would be very helpfull! Hoping to post my trailer next week so beware:)
