I'd like to start this new thread to get some help from the members for this next project. More information will come once I get more about it.

High Quality

Medium Quality(Divx Codec or player required)

Low Quality

I need any feedback or video you can help me with. I'd like to add some new material to this project, however without your help I'm not sure what I'll be able to make of it.

Thank you,
Lee

As of right now, I really don't have a deadline. I've got a few other projects that's due first before I start this one. I'm thinking of taking some video's that Stic-o has done, plus some I've done and but them on the DVD. I'd like to add some new stuff as well though so it's not the same crud, just on a TV. Once I get more of a time frame I'll post it, but till them post away.

This sounds awesome -- hopefully ill be able to take some vids soon.

But I was just thinking, DVD-video typically has a res of 720×480. I know the videos I currently have are not that high in res :(

As of right now, it's looking like around the start of May before I can really get this off the ground. My wife is due with our first child in April, so between a few other deadlines and that I'll be tied up for some time. Whenever you get them, go ahead and email me. If I don't use them for this video, I'm sure I'll use them in the future.

IZwack, Most of my video is 720x480 or higher. To make it look the best ya I shouldn't stretch it any, however I often do for the video's for the site. Depending on how much you've got I could just leave it at a smaller setting and insert an animation over top of the video, just like I did on this one. Upload what you've got, and I'll sort through it and weed out the trash. :D

I find it hard to believe that there's nobody out there with links to some video with them. I received a copy of a paragon run from Jeff Draper, but other than that nothing. I'll take any video at the point, just post anything you've got. :D

Ok all.....I'm not sure if I'll have enough to put together an entire DVD worth of video, however I would like to still do a new music video for the site. Once the Moab group returns and starts to upload their video I'll start....so now's your chance to post up!

Positive Vibes...sorry I didn't return your answer. My fault. If I'm guessing you've got MiniDV tapes. If so you could just make a copy of those and mail them to me. If that's too much, just plug your camera into the computer and copy the video onto your computer making clips of the video, then email me the best ones. The other format you may have are 8mm or HI8 tapes. These will be needed to put onto VHS, however at this time I have no way to easily put these onto my computer.

I am not a professional like you but if you need any help i will offer whatever you need.

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind! I'm not sure at this point what is going to come of this though. Just not sure if I'll have enough to warrant a DVD. I do know though I'll have enough for a longer video like last years. I know at this point the rendering is going to kill me! Just the title animation alone in the tease posted below took over 10 hours to render!
