Okay, I know the video looks a little crappy, I am still learning how to properly render in widescreen. I’ll get it eventually, and my next episode will be in standard 4:3 aspect ratio, because Vegas doesn’t seem to have a problem with that. It’s all a matter of tweaking the settings to keep the audio and video synchronized, which is what I was having a problem with.
I do like having a proper video camera though, because it makes doing the video easier. The chroma key effects are much better, since I don’t have to do much color correction on the video. I spent about 20 dollars at Walmart getting two reflector lamps (they came in a kit that was easy to assemble) and a couple of 150 watt GE Reveal light bulbs. They put the proper amount of light on the green screen, and if I sit about six feet away from it, plus have a small spotlight mounted on my tripod right below the video camera to provide fill-in light, the raw video is a snap to chroma key. (That is one of the reasons why I actually spent 95 bucks at Sony’s website for the Vegas Platinum Pro package. Vegas is so much easier to use than Pinnacle Studio.)
Another thing: I know that this video is a little long, but the subject matter demanded it. Hate in any form should be discouraged and ridiculed. So here is the video, and I hope you enjoy it, or makes you think about it and do something.
The next video (which should be up sometime Sunday night,) I will take on the series finale of “Battlestar Galactica,” which finally ended it’s cockteasing and went out in an orgasmic blaze of glory (IMHO.)
