Summary – I recently posted a video made from still images I captured at a concert. I took some time to redo that video.
A Concert by The Bronx Wanderers
I redid the video because even though
The stills were reasonably in focus & sharp
As shown by this 100% view of the watch above
The resulting video was blurred by comparison IMO
So – where did I go wrong?
I placed the still images (58 of them) into a slide show program
I had the program create
The highest quality HD video possible
Further I used a wizard to
Give this video lots of energy
Slide movements and fancy-pants transitions
The show’s duration was synced to
A 3:21 audio recording
(which itself had a distracting low-frequency hum
removed in Audacity, an audio editor)
The basic problem with the above setup was
Too many fast-moving parts
Solved by –
Removing 1/3 of the images
They were similar to others and
Added little (detracted, in fact)
Thus images could move much slower
50% more time to move
And reducing the energy level a little bit
Those two solution steps gave an improved product
You can see this same video larger without going full screen
Better viewing experience IMO – go here
