This was cool. At CES 2006 I was filming footage of a little helicopter nad the presenter saw mw and flew the helicopter right at me so I could get a good shot. It almost hit my camera! He said he was sorry, but I thanked him for doing it. It was so cool.
This booth at CES 2006 caught my eye with their signage: VIDEO EDITING IS DEAD.
It was muvee company. Their software automatically takes your raw footage of movies and photos and makes it into a movie set to music.
There are lots of styles to choose from. Mohamed gave me a short demo and then I asked him if I could have muvee make a movie for me with the footage I had already taken on my Canon S400. He brought out his laptop and we loaded up my pictures and video from the previous two hours. Video that I was going to have to edit anyway.
So we loaded in the footage and chose a quick edit style. The music we used is licensed by muvee for demo purposes. I then clicked a button that said make muvee and the software analyzed all the footage, looking at the where it would make the edits.
After that I previewed the movie and could make any changes that I wanted. there are a TON of options on how to save your movie, even to DVD. I chose Quicktime, 320x240, 15 fps and saved to a flash card. then I copied the movie onto my Mac for viewing with QuickTime player. Plays great. http://muvee.com
