Here is some footage of Roemer and I flying down to Coachella, but first stop: Monterey.
My encoding is looking better, even though I am using the same still camera to take the videos ( I like my Sony DSC-V1). Basically, the cam outputs mpeg1 files that I have to convert or else I don't get the audio for some reason. So I convert it to divx, then I convert it to .mov (using ffmpgX), then I can finally edit the damn thing.
THAT was the process that was gunking up the works. Now that I'm better at tweaking the settings, I'm a much happier Schlomo. Happy Schlomo want donut.
