[livejournal.com profile] cyborganize's notes, from the [livejournal.com profile] h1v3m1nd cross-post: We unearthed this short-lived Kroft children's show through a chain of internets involving [livejournal.com profile] metatxt and soap opera proto-fandom. What I find most fascinating is its presentation of video itself as a superpower through a reliance on cheesy analog effects. Electra Woman & Dyna Girl, inept though they may be, trust in the magic of television to save the earth from techno-evil! I ended up using the show (along with The X-Files and Max Headroom) in a screening for my Intro to TV course, paired with 1970s video art. I couldn't resist mashing up [livejournal.com profile] beccatoria's crackvid with some of that footage (Nam June Paik's "Global Groove" and selections from a PBS documentary "Video: The New Wave") to highlight this dialogue between the mass media and the art world. Of course, it's digital technology that enables such manipulation -- for the coda, I distorted the image by databending to suggest a trajectory from those early experiments to our present-day mediascape. But [livejournal.com profile] beccatoria would want me to add that you REALLY SHOULDN'T TAKE THIS TOO SERIOUSLY.

I vidded cartoonz again. It is big and cheesy and I make no apologies!

Also using .mkv files is hellish; pretty, but hellish, and then you have to encode it down to distribution size and it stops being half as pretty. So yes. Hellish and then depressing, that's .mkv vidding for you.

ANYWAY.

OH SO HI, remember years ago when me and [livejournal.com profile] cyborganize used to make crazy mashups of BSG and 50s era Prelinger Archive public service announcements?

After Fringe and Doctor Who impressing me loads last week, this week they were both a bit meh, so instead of talking about them, I made this cus I was bored. It is short, but as it is over two minutes, I declare it a full-blown vid.

I originally planned to post this today in order to get it out there ahead of the new series premiere, but it feels wrong and conspicuous to do so, now, without mentioning Elisabeth Sladen. This is not a vid about Sarah Jane, but it is a vid about a show that would have been much lesser without Elisabeth Sladen. The universe, both fictional and real, is a worse place without her in it.

DUDES. It has been forever since I posted any vids. Because I have been doing silly things like Making Things for Cons which Cannot Be Released Forever (or, in the case of one of them, until just over a week from now omgs). So, possibly I should have spent more time on it, but GLEE A VID ATE MY BRAIN. To one of the most overvidded songs on the planet even! :D

Title: Mad World

OKAY! For reasons best known to...some part of my brain for sure, I have made a series of tutorials to show people how to make vids on Linux. I've done this for a few reasons, firstly because there should be more vids, and my own experiences getting to grips with Cinelerra were more challenging than they would have been had there been an active vidding community to assist me, since a lot of the tutorials were aimed at different types of video editing or deeply technical. Secondly, I think more people should be aware of the option. Not only are Linux and Cinelerra philosophically free, as in open source, they're also financially free, as in zero cost. And they run much better on systems with lower end specs.

So you know, vidding has a somewhat deserved reputation as being an expensive hobby, but you really can have a program that can do fancy editing shit without spending a lot of money or having a superawesome machine.

SO BRIEFLY:

These tutorials are split into two parts. The first focuses on basics, including getting a Linux-based Operating System (I recommend Ubuntu) and setting that up, installing programs, setting up Cinelerra, basic editing on Cinelerra with a focus on what is most applicable to music videos (in my own biased opinion, of course!)

The second set of tutorials is a collection of stuff I've done over the past year that is more advanced. It's basically focused on achieving more complex effects and/or stuff that many other editing programs have presets for but Cinelerra doesn't. That's the thing about Cinelerra, it can do most of the stuff Vegas or Premiere can do, it's just not always obvious, preset-level easy, and will involve using a program that kind of looks like it was made in 1994.

SO. LET'S GET ON WITH IT:

TUTORIAL SET #1: Basics. )

TUTORIAL SET #2: More advanced effects. )

Finally, a few links:

The Cinelerra CV Manual: this is the official manual for the community version of Cinelerra (which is the version we are dealing with here; see here for information as to why if you're curious). The manual looks big and intimidating and probably isn't a good first step for a total beginner, but it's very comprehensive and very useful and will pretty much answer all your questions. So it's good to link it here for posterity.

Various Other Tutorials: The official Cinelerra CV site links to various other tutorials in various languages with various focuses. It's probably the most complete centralised repository of tutorial links I've found, though you can also just plain old search YouTube.

THE END.

Vidder's notes - aka, why this accidentally turned into a vid not a vidlet... )

I will index and crosspost all vidlets at the end of November or when I've done all the prompts if I decide to keep going to finish them.
beccatoria: (Default)
GOODNESS, I actually got this done on time. Surprising, given it's as long as the last Doctor Who Season Five 'ship vid with an awesome song that got prompted to me. I SENSE A PATTERN. Especially given that they both start with near identical sequences. *eyedart* I might also have chopped up the song and put it back together again; I'M SO SORRY MS TENG..

Okay, this one ended up SUPER LONG, like barely under my own self-imposed limit of two minutes, which is nearly twice as long as my general aim. Sorry to future prompters but you're unlikely to get something as long as this is... *facepalm* I blame the song choice, which I just feel in love with. Seriously, I meant to vid one verse and a chorus, but I couldn't chooooose so I chopped up the song to keep the gorgeous final rendition of the chorus and ended up with this:

Happy birthday [livejournal.com profile] chaila43! Remember all those times you bugged me to make this vid and I said I never would (and you probably didn't mean it this literally)? I was lying. I was also lying that time I said I wasn't vidding anything right now. God, I'm such a liar. And rather shocked I didn't cave under the pressure and tell you about it long ago. HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY, YOU'RE AWESOME AND I LOVE YOU.
