22. all fall down.  

This is my first attempt at working with Vegas video editor. So, I'm quite nervous. A huge, huge thanks goes out to ageless_aislynn and humansrsuperior. They have both been extremely helpful in getting this little number up.

you've almost convinced me i'm real.: who » that's the moment i give it up.ostentatious on January 6th, 2009 04:03 am (UTC)
I just finished watching it, and I really, really liked it. I'm normally not one for fanvids, but this one is definitely on a very short list of ones that I make an exception for. The song and the clips you chose work very well together, and honestly? It's worth the download time. ♥

Excellent work. I honestly think that cross-posting would be amazing, seeing as I'm sure a lot of people would enjoy it.

Thank you so much! ♥ As I said, I was extremely nervous about uploading it, so feedback is fantastic to hear!

I'm on it!

Ooooh, good question. I honestly have no idea! What would you suggest putting it on?

I don't even know! It's a MAD size and it's driving me INSANE not being able to upload it somewhere!

It's perfectly okay! Thank you very much for attempting it, anyhow! ♥ :D

I didn't download yet ('cause it would take me quite a while to download something that large and I'm crossing my fingers for a smaller rendering ;) ) but I can be just about 100% sure why it's that big just from seeing the info come up at Megaupload: the extension is .AVI. Uncompressed .AVI is GINORMOUS. O_O ;)

When you go to render your project, use the pulldown menu under where it lets you name the file and change .AVI to .WMV and you'll see a massive reduction in the size of the final product. ;) Vegas uses .AVI as the default for some reason but I've always had good luck getting nice quality without having a huge file size by rendering into .WMV. ;) You can go into Custom (to the right of where you name the file) and further tweak some of the settings if the first render into .WMV isn't satisfactory. :D

Anyway, if you don't mind rendering your project again, I'm sure you'll get a lot more people willing and eager to check it out! :D ♥!
the goddamn batfleck.: who ۶ he always has the answers.rustcohle on January 6th, 2009 06:07 am (UTC)
(Oh, I don't blame you whatsoever.)

Okay, I can do that! I'll try it as soon as I can! (Are .WMVs still uploadable to places such as YouTube or Imeem?)

Thanks very much. ♥

(Are .WMVs still uploadable to places such as YouTube or Imeem?)

Yep, they absolutely are. :D That's the format I've used for all of my vids and I've got some hosted at both places as well as having used all of the various limited time streaming/downloading places like Zshare and Sendspace and all of their kin! ;)

Anyway, you're very welcome! This kind of thing comes up all the time because of Vegas having that as a default. So if you don't know to change it, you'll end up with this HUGE file size and have no idea why! O_O ;)

I'm looking forward to seeing your vid! :D ♥!
the goddamn batfleck.: who ۶ celebrate good times.rustcohle on January 6th, 2009 06:16 am (UTC)
God, thank you SO, so, so, so, so, so, SOOOO much. You are my own personal savior!

Keep an eye out, it shouldn't be much longer now! :D

Aw, shucks... ;) I'm glad to help! I love my Vegas (technically it's Vegas Movie Studio but practically the same difference ;) ) but it's a huge HUH? when you're first learning it. Or at least it was for me, lol! ;) I had a list this long *holds hands apart a long ways* of people to thank for helping me finish my first vid with it! ;)

*keeps eye out for vid* ;) ♥!
the goddamn batfleck.: who ۶ i find it kinda funny.rustcohle on January 6th, 2009 06:22 am (UTC)
It really, really is. Like - at first I got the gist of what I was doing, but then I had it saved the way it was, and I was completely flabbergasted. "888!!??" I screamed. I've had so much trouble with it, and all along I could've solved my problem by asking a simple question!

Blimey, life moves fast when things are done properly! It's uploaded, but processing. So, I'm a wee bit bouncy now!

I'm sure it's completely gorgeous at that size, at least, lol! ;) It's kind of equivalent to Windows Movie Maker's "Save to computer" setting where it wasn't really meant to be uploaded but just watched on that computer or burned to a DVD. ;)

I swear, Vegas should come packaged with a large pillow for people to faint onto if they're going to leave the default rendering format at .AVI! O_O Lol! ;)

Yay, for uploaded and processing! :D I know how it is when you put a vid up and you're just so eager for people to get to see it, then to have some silly rendering setting getting in the way... :( But this should do the trick! At least it's a fairly easy thing to solve once you know where to look! :D
the goddamn batfleck.: who ۶ it makes me smile.rustcohle on January 6th, 2009 06:29 am (UTC)
Oh, that it was! I was rather shocked, at it's quality, myself. AHA, yes, that does make more sense.

I agree completely. That was mad. I lost half my brains because of that thing!

That it is! It all makes so much more sense now! Thank you again! So much!

Aw, you're very, very welcome! Now, onto the vid! :D

Oh, I love this song and I love how you used it to show how "when the world comes crashing down" the Doctor is there! Really nice lyric use and clip choices (I'm a sucker for all the Doctor/Rose, Doctor/Martha, Doctor/Donna hugs, what can I say? ;) Especially when they're fitted so nicely with appropriate lyrics and music! \o/ ;) ).

I also really love that you spread things out between the companions and then how you showed how he loses each of them and ultimately ends up alone. *sniffle* Very bittersweet and melancholy and again, really perfect with the song. I loved it! :D *pets poor Doctor, though* :(

Thanks so much for rendering it down so I could see it! :D ♥!

:D ~twirl.

You're very welcome! Thank you so much for the compliments! It took a fair bit of my time, but I'm just really glad that it was worth it in the end. :D

Gosh, now you've gone and made me blush like a loon. Thanks to you, I'll be impossible to live with all day. ♥ Thanks again, for absolutely everything!

It's up, it's up, it's finally up!

And it's fantastic. Seriously, Sheena, this is amazing, and I find it really really hard to believe that you've never used Vegas before. Have you been holding back this secret talent, huh huh?
the goddamn batfleck.: who ۶ i find it kinda funny.rustcohle on January 6th, 2009 01:29 pm (UTC)
YEP YEP YEP! ^____^

Thank you! Eek! I promise you I've never used it before in my entire life. :D It was all done on a bit of a whim, really. Lots of guesswork was done. XD

I love this video. You did a great job. I have one question. How do I download it?

Thank you so much!


There's the download link! Enjoy! ♥

Nice job on this. :) Vegas can definitely be overwhelming at first. If you are looking for some tutorials on Sony Vegas, Elvira has started a series of them that are really useful for beginners. They go over all the basics of setting up your project, rendering, etc. Also the Foolish Passion Vidding Forum is a great source. The members are very friendly and helpful. There's all kinds of tutorials, software information, tips, and just random chat. ;) Come check us out!

Oh, that's brilliant, thank you so much! And thank you for the compliment! I'll definitely be checking it all out!

And I just remembered who you were! You're the brilliant creator of my Stop and Stare video! OH! It's so good to run into you again!

Random tidbit, I also know why the graphics are so bad. I had downloaded m4v files - and well, those just don't like to be changed very much at all, do they? My next videos won't be NEARLY as horrible quality, I promise. XD

Very great cuts! I love how it is composed. :)
I have many ideas for a Doctor Who fanvid in my head also, but unfortunately, don't have too much material for it. :/
the goddamn batfleck.: who ۶ she's like a little bird.rustcohle on January 13th, 2009 01:09 am (UTC)
Thank you very much!

Oh? Do tell! Perhaps I could compose something for you!
