Build An Instant Movie in 6 Easy Steps

Build-A-Video Workshop, Where Instant Movies Are Made My 10 year old daughter celebrated her birthday over the Easter weekend. What she wanted was a stuffed animal from Build-A-Bear Workshop.Being ignorant of kids stores around town, I thought Build-A-Bear Workshop was just another toy shop. By co-incidence while reading the financial news about Bear Stearns, I discovered Build-A-Bear Workshop is listed on New York Stock Exchange at a whopping $9 per share (rounded off).I thought: “How can a teddy bear shop make so much money?”. I brought my daughter to a nearby outlet to find out… and to build her the bear.The store was buzzing. There were mainly 3 types of customers. Parents buying for kids. Boyfriends buying for girlfriends. Girls buying for themselves. The staff were cheery bubbly teen girls bouncing around the store like they will never run out of batteries.Dollar signs appeared in front of my eyes. It is a novelty store. You actually build from scratch a bear or any animal stuff …

How to Extract DVD Menu Only

How to Extract DVD Menu Only? This is a strange request but a valid one. Most commercial softwares let you extract the main video and not the menu. The reason most clients want to extract the menu is because it looks good and they want to use it again in another video compilation.I am not referring to movie DVDs here, but corporate video DVDs belonging to the client. Their previous videographers have done a good job with the motion menu which is worth re-using.The point to note is, once the menu is extracted, it is just a pure video clip and not interactive anymore.Here are the 5 steps to Extract DVD Menu Only.Download, install and run freeware DVD Shrink. Works on Windows 9x/2000/XP/Vista. Insert DVD into DVD drive.Step #1: Select Open Disc. Select DVD Drive.Step #2: Select Re-author.Step #3: Select Menu Video.Step #4: Select Backup. Select folder to save the extracted file.Step #5: Click OK. Wait for encoding.The menu will be extracted and encoded in VOB file format. A good v…

PSD to JPEG Converter - Freeware Review and Tutorial

Ever received a graphic in PSD format when all you needed was a JPG format?

Ever wanted to convert a PSD file on a PC without Photoshop?

Ever looked for a PSD to JPG converter that is free?

I have this DVD production project that needed customized packaging and printing. The client has his own design team to create the graphics, which they sent us in PSD format.

Our printing system required only a good JPG file to get the work done.

I do not want to disturb my ever busy Video Editor, so I searched and hunted for a software that can convert PSD to JPG and for free… and after a few minutes, I found it! :)

Here I will show you how easy it is to use. [Click here for full article on PSD to JPEG Converter...]

Choosing the Right Video Editing Laptop Computer

The Weekend’s IT Show was packed like sardines. It seems everyone needed some kind of IT product… which is true… almost everything is IT or digital now. Cameras, video camcorders, phones, TV sets, car accessories and of course video editing software and computers. The quarterly exhibition is a must-go for its bargains, promotions, free gifts and lucky draws. This time I was there to look for a new video editing laptop.The laptop I want must be powerful enough to run Sony Vegas Pro 8 at high speed and must be able to burn DVDs wherever I go. It will complement my camcorder to form a complete mobile video production system.To meet the requirement, here are 5 power specs to look out for...

Transferring Blogger to Wordpress in Two Hours

I have finally made the move... my blog.

From the old Blogger blog http://adriansjournal.blogspot.com/ to the new Wordpress blog http://adrian.videolane.net!

Why Do I Want to Move from Blogger to Wordpress?

The comments form in Blogger is inconvenient. Need to click away just to leave a comment.
Almost every famous blogger is using Wordpress. It must be good. Well the template looks more professional.

The Blog is Now On My Own Domain.

I had this domain for 10 years, hosted by Yahoo. VideoLane.net complements my real business at VideoLane.com.

Yahoo Webhosting comes with automatic Wordpress installation, which does not work very well.

So I decided to download wordpress version 2.3.3 and install it myself. It took only 2 hours, including importing posts and comments from the old blog.

Installing Wordpress and Transferring Old Blog Posts.

Let me recall how it was done:

Download Wordpress 2.3.3 zipped file.
Unzip and save in a folder.
Change some settings in the wp-config.php file.
FTP all the files to…
