Sony Vegas Pro 8 Tutorial - Multicamera Editing

Sony Vegas Pro 8 makes it easier to edit videos from different cameras right from the timeline. You can capture and edit video for a single scene from 2 or more cameras or for a single scene shot a few times with one camera.

Here is a tutorial of a Multicamera Edit of a drama I shot. The drama was acted out four times to the public and being a non-profit organization, the client have budget only for one videographer. For each of the 4 acts, the camcorder (Sony HDR-FX7 High Definition Camcorder) was placed at 4 different positions and shot in various angles.

Multicamera edit is accomplished in only 8 steps with the Sony Vegas Pro 8.

Step #1: Capture Multicamera Video Clips

Use the normal Sony Vegas Video Capture function to capture recordings from each camera. Give each capture filename a unique name. Enable scene detection before capturing so that each segment is captured as a separate clip.


Step #2 : Layout Video Clips on Timeline

Drag and drop video clips over each other on the time…

Shooting Singapore Flyer with Sony HDR-FX7 High Definition Camcorder

Am I the first videographer to board the Singapore Flyer even before its opening?

I was just staring at the Singapore Flyer last week from the 46th storey of One Raffles Place, wondering how best to film the the whole observation wheel if they were to have fireworks there.
Strangely, the next moment, I was invited to board the giant ferris wheel for a videography assignment. The first thing that came in to my mind was to shoot in high definition, Full HD in HDV, using my Sony HDR-FX7 High Definition Camcorder.
To ensure I get the best shots during the 20-minute ride, I planned the shots way in advance. Studied the best London Eye commercial videos on the web. All I needed was my camcorder, wide angle lens, tripod and my must-shoot checklist. ND filter set to 2. No sound required.
21 January 2008, 10am: A bright sunny morning with passing clouds over Singapore Marina Bay.
The capsule climbed to the tip of the wheel and paused there for about 5 minutes for the photographers to snap away. The…

Wedding Videography - Singapore Wedding Videographer is Back

The Singapore Wedding Videographer is BACK.
BIGGER
- He's built a bigger company with more staff.
BADDER - He does not answer calls and never reply emails.
BOLDER - He serves only those who appreciates the best in wedding.

Hi,
This is Adrian. I have left the wedding industry for the whole year of 2007 for two reasons. The first reason was that I want to spend quantity time with my kids. (I never seem to be with them when most of my weekends were fully booked with wedding shoot committment). The second reason was I wanted to build up my corporate videography department.

Now, I had a great time with my kids. My corporate business is now running on its own, with dedicated staff. Next, I will be moving on to my new "DVD Production" project.

In the mean time, I would like to apologize to those whom I have ignored request for wedding videography, and by popular demand, I have reserved some weekends this year for weddings again.

OK, this is not all about me. This is about you and your…

Real Time Web Site Visitor Tracking with Sound Alert

I stumbled across a free download that makes PC desktops look better and easier to use.

It came packaged with VistaStartMenu, Yahoo Widgets and Zune Desktop Theme.

I was thrilled to discover that one of the Yahoo Widgets can display Google Adsense earnings in real time without logging in. This saved me a lot of hassle as I have the obsession of checking my Adsense earnings almost every hour.

Then I thought to myself, what about web stats? Is there a Yahoo Widget that can display website statistics in real time?

I couldn't find one in Yahoo Widgets, but since I know the posibility of such widgets exist, I searched Netvibes' widgets.

There is a web analysis widget that closely match what I want. It tracks and displays website vistors in real time based on Clicky Web Analytics service. I placed the code in my website pages and the numbers started counting in the widget in real time. No need to refresh the page.


Again I was not fully satisfied. I wanted it to make a sound when the numbe…

Build a Website With Free Online Tools and Video Widgets

Building a professional website have become so easy with new free tools and free widgets.

I have my own website since 1998 and it has undergone many changes and face-lifts with 100 pages and over.

The 2008 web site revamp was in line with my new business direction as well as clients' feedback.

Simple Content Management System

Clients found the website navigation hard to follow with difficulty finding what they want.

So I changed the whole template from a 1-column website to a 3-column website, from a top-menu drop-down navigation system to a side-menu navigation system. The side-menu bar is always visible as compared to a drop-down menu.

to

Thanks to CMSimple, a simple online content mangement system, the change in template was done within 1 hour, though the site has over 100 web pages.

Everything is done online. Nothing to upload except new graphics and widgets.

Free Online Logo Design

Since the size of the graphic header is changed due to a different template, I had to redesign a new on…

Happy New Year! Did You Catch the Countdown Fireworks Display?

Where were you on new year's eve?

I was at the Vivo City countdown party, 31 December 2007.

Brought along a mat and some titbits. Settled down on best spot and waited 3 hours for midnight.

It's a yearly family thing. The kids love staying up late. I love the celebration and pyrotechnics.

From where we were, up on the roof where the party was, we can see fireworks displays from 3 different locations.

The furthest, in sentosa, seem so tiny like sparklers in our hands. The nearer display was spectacular as multiple flaming rockets shot into the air and burst into shimmering dust.
Of course, I brought along my Sony HDR-SR8 and recorded everything, in High Definition.

By the way, the video I made here was last years fireworks display.
