I just uploaded the video I shot from my Halloween display. It's also my first attempt at stringing video together and trying to edit it, so go easy on me. :p

I have some nighttime video to work on as well and should have that up by week's end.

Anyways, here's the link to my video. It's a nice, small Real Video file (10 MB) and the video is about 3 minutes long. Hope you enjoy it!

Good video Zombie-F! Nice choice of music. Your display looked great.

I shot zero video this year and only have a few daylight pictures. Next year I'm going to stop and take some shots whether I'm finished setting up or not.

What program did you use for your editing and rendering?

I used Pinnacle's Studio 10 for it. Honestly, it's buggy as hell. I was forced to remove all the ambient sound from the video because the program adds a nasty popping sound when you mix the video's sound with background music.

Actually, when you make your final output video in any format other than MPEG, the popping noise is there regardless of whether or not you mute the source video's sound.

It also randomly crashes, and for some reason all of the output video settings (like video size, bitrate, etc) aren't customizable as they are supposed to be. The software reeks of being in the beta stages still.

I just re-uploaded the video with some re-editing. I made some of the transitions between clips a little smoother. It's about two seconds longer than before and is now a 59 MB file. Broaband people only, unless those of you on dialup don't mind waiting until 2007 to watch it. :p

Everything looked absolutely cool, Dave. I really like how your columns, the coffin and the bone burning stove all turned out. The selection of music from Midnight Syndicate's Realm of Shadows was totally choice. I would like to see how all that with the music intact looks during twilight hours. :xbones:

Hehe, I'm working on it. :devil:

I used those tracks as the actual ambient music for Halloween night too. I used the old band PA system to pump out the eerie sounds of Midnight Syndicate throughout my yard.

See Rob, the band PA has come in handy. :D

Really nice job, Zombie...

That shaking Skelly really looked great! (I'm a sucker for animated props!)

I haven't thought about building one untill you showed the video..The how-to pics don't do it justice.

I try to show video's of my animated props wherever possible, just for that reason. You have truley outdone yourself this year. I am inspired to start building MORE!!! Christmas list in progress....

I played bass and sang backing vocals. The band consisted of people who all post here... Pete (guitar and vocals) Raxl (vocals) myself (bass and backing vocals) and a revolving door of drug-addled drummers.

We were a strange metal/punk combo named Badass. There is a moratorium web site for all our music at http://badass.unpleasantstreet.com . Listen at your own risk. :p

Great video Zombie! You did a great job to capture the whole yard.

By the way, I never knew about the band, but I just gave it a listen and it sounds awsome!

And finally, the night time video:

http://www.unpleasantstreet.com/video/halloween_display_night.rm

My submission to the Halloween-L DVD will consist of the day and night videos strung together with a creepy transition from day to night in place of the Unpleasant Street link at the end of the day video (which will remain at the end)

Awsome video Zombie! Your far more talented than I could ever be at editing those and putting them to music. Can't wait to see it on Halloween-L!

I actually tried to watch the video earlier today when I was at work (DSL) It kept buffering. It would load, hit 99% and start over, and over again.

I'm kind of leaning on my work computers being "junk". Who knows.

I'll try it again tomorrow.

(Don't be telling anyone, I'm like..............not allowed to be doing that at work, and I promise to listen next time):devil: :devil:
