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.
In this video, I'm watching video on a Nokia N95 via a cable connection to my TV. The video I'm watching was filmed and edited on the N95, uploaded to my video blog, and then downloaded back to the N95 using the Nokia Video Centre via the RSS 2.0 with enclosures feed from my video blog. This is a glimpse into the future of creation and consumption of Internet TV. This video has been entered in Network2.tv's How do YOU watch Internet TV contest.
I recorded this movie, edited it, added credits and a soundtrack on the Nokia N95 while riding the Orange line train from Green Street to Downtown Crossing. That's about a 15 minute ride.
This is an exciting development to be able to be able to shoot and edit a little video while on a train on a cell phone. I don't have cell service on the phone yet, otherwise I would have been able to post it to my blog from the phone too.
Once we get free WiFi all around Boston I'll be able to use that to send the video via WiFi where ever I want. This is exciting because it allows video production from the streets.
I'd never used the N95's video editor and learned how to use it on the train ride. I shot a few clips and then did an assemble edit. Added transitions and credits. Then I took the song Let Go from Imogen Heap and added it as a soundtrack. I trimmed that down to match the length of the video, 28 seconds.
