Out of the Blue

It was a lovely Saturday afternoon 11 years ago today when MrsBlue and I exchanged our vows in the pocket of urbanized nature that is Central Park. We'll celebrate our anniversary tonight with a quiet dinner at a nearby bistro, where we will reflect on how lucky we are to continue to find our life together to be so enjoyable after all these years.

We've always said Mrs. Blue must be a helluva gal if she can stick it out with you, Blue.

Hooray for Blue.
Being happily married 11 years means you are not a total tard and your penis works well enough.

Good job man! Keep it up, rub some funk on it.

Not sure what you used to make the video

I picked up a copy of Sony Vegas Platinum + DVD Architect (?) a year or so ago (got it as a gift, I think, not sure of the version, as I really never use it):

Frankly, it does about 300x more than I would ever need or want to try, so figuring out how to do some things is tedious at best....

I was trying to do that but couldn't figure out how to change the duration for each shot to be shown (except manually, and I wasn't about to go through each one and do it by hand).

Gotcha.

Not sure what you used to make the video, but I know that one way to accomplish that would be to simply drop a folder containing all your images onto QuickTime. As long as they're sorted in the order you want, you'll have your movie.

You could then dump the resulting movie into whatever other apps you have and add stills/sound/effects.

Mine is next Friday and it's movie night, so we already bought tix to see a late afternoon matinee showing of Spiderman 3. I might have to be sick that day, *cough, cough*. Well after lunch, anyways.

My only comment would be that it's quite a bit more dynamic and fun to watch when it's sped-up significantly. After I took a look at this version, I scrubbed back-and-forth through the house building section a couple of times, and it's really cool to see the house being built-up at hyper speed.

I like the way you started with a couple of still-frames at the beginning, but you might try a version using all the frames you shot, but making the total duration something more like 25-30 seconds or so.

Yeah, I am going to try to play with it more later, as I was trying to do that but couldn't figure out how to change the duration for each shot to be shown (except manually, and I wasn't about to go through each one and do it by hand). I need to play around with the program some more when this is all done and I still don't have any time.

I may just take what I have now and try to compress it instead of doing the frames individually, if that makes any sense....

Hell, I was just happy to be able to get music to play with the video!

Okay, question...

Where's the close button with the advertisement with the skillet that keeps chasing my mouse around? That's annoying as heck.

Oh, and happy anniversary, btw -- our 2nd is Monday
