  1. Hi Jon and Drew, It was Pro Res 422, 1920 x 1080 interlaced. I deinterlaced it in Compressor which helped and ended up using the 1080p option in Compressor and it brought it down to under 500mb. Thanks for the tips re handbrake, Apple TV and checking out the Vimeo Compressor rates, I'll take a look and have a play around to see what works best. Thanks so much for your help. :-) Jo
  2. Hi Wetpixellers, I've created a 3 minute film to enter in the Sea 2013 competition, trouble is it's 2.5GB and the upload has failed.....no surprise there because of the size!! I've bought Compressor but have never used it before and don't have clue what I need to compress it to, to keep a decent quality for the competition. Can anyone please advise which option I need to choose. Many thanks for your help, Jo
  3. Thanks Simon and Nick. Yeah, the morays can be real characters!!
  4. Thanks Peter. :0) I was using the inon 165 and 330 wet lenses, sometimes stacked. I'm really enjoying shooting macro subjects when I can.....the eyes ain't what they used to be, so it's great to see all the details when I get back and upload it to a big screen. Jo
  5. Hi Wetpixellers, Have at last finished my shortish video from our recent trip to Ambon, in Indonesia. I thought some of you might like a look and to dream of warm waters!! Have a great Christmas one and all, Jo. x Taken with a Sony XR520 in an Aditech, Mangrove housing with 2 x Fix LED 100DX and Inon 165 and 330 wet macro lenses. [youtubehd]vmniavGK7G8[/youtubehd]
  6. Brilliant, thought provoking film Simon. Just need to get this message out to the un-educated amongst us, to make them stop and think!!!
  7. Morning Simon, Tends to be a bit last minute as we have to check the weather, but will let you know. Hmmm.....now I definitely don't feel sorry for you at all!!! Have a brilliant time in Cocos. Jo
  8. Thanks Peter and Steve, for a 1st time at this style I'm very please with how it turned out and learnt a lot from the process....will need to do some more experimenting with this style when I have a bit more time and improve the timing problem so that it's not too frantic. Am enjoying learning FCPX, it's similar enough to be familiar to FCE, but just need to get used to where everything is and the extras that I've not had before. Thanks again both. Jo PS. Nice video Steve
  9. Thanks Simon, always learning, which is good. Seems to be a general consensus that it was a little too fast....next time it will be better!!! Really enjoy mixing up the styles, I have some seal footage that is crying out for a funny script....just need to get my thinking cap on. That's a real bummer that you've not managed to get in the water this year.....but I guess family has been a priority this year...bet it's worth it though!! Was down at Selsey this afternoon under the lifeboat pier and was lucky to find a pair of Tompots having quite a spat, they totally ignored me and were having a real go at each other....reminded me a bit of the fight scene from Bridget Jones, very funny!! Selsey's an hour from us so we've been there quite a bit this year, if you ever fancy joining us, let me know. See ya, Jo
  10. Hi Nick and Chris, Great feedback, thanks. Yes, I like the pace of it, but as you say varying the pace in places would help to make it less hectic. I've just moved to Final Cut Pro X, so if I'd edited this piece in there instead of Final Cut Express I think it would have been a lot easier to move things around so that the crescendos emphasised the action better.........I like the style though, so if I do another one I'll try some of your suggestions. Many thanks, Jo
