This video was recorded on the Nokia N95. I then edited the video on iMovie on my MacBook Pro. I learned a couple of things. An 8 minute movie, exported as 640x480 is a 266MB file. So I re-exported this as a 320x240 QuickTime movie using H.264 and it ended up as a 73 MB file. A better size for uploading to blip.tv. I might switch to recording these Steve TV videos as 320x240 so I don't have to deal with the file size problems. The 640x480 quality is amazing, but for these little tests capturing life streams, I think the smaller size is fine. I'm also being seduced by the ease of use that the N95 provides with it's internal editor. After having gone through all the trials and tribulations of logging and capturing, editing, compressing and exporting video with a desktop based system and miniDV based camera, it's freeing to be able to shoot, edit and post from one device.
Recorded and edited on a Nokia N95. It did the title and credits. I used the menus to make this movie. First I merged two clips, then added the title, then added the credits. All without a timeline. Pretty sweet. There's a timeline based editor too, but I wanted to try this out today.
Also, part of this was edited in camera, meaning I shot a clip, then paused, then shot, then paused, and then saved. So I ended up with a clip that had three shots in it. very cool.
