I would like to get started. My Dad has an 8mm video camera. I shoot all kinds of things. Sometimes I want to grab the video, other times I want a screenshot. I've been editing audio for so long now, I want to try my hand at video. My cousin took a course at some college where she had to make commercials and music videos and stuff and it looked like fun.

Well we have editing programs, CGI, and digital cameras. We enjoy making short skits, parodies, and even movies (one of which I am working on now). If you're interested in that kind of thing go to my site:

Yea, unfortunately, Angelfire is an A-hole. They took away 60% of may space so now I can't show video's until I figure out how to compress them. Know of any free divix encoders?

Meanwhile, I'll put up more pics. Wink Hee hee, see my Landcrusier? Grin Grin Grin It's the large version of my avatar.


EDIT: Scooter (and anyone else that's interested), while I was working on putting up pics, I decided to do a major update to my site (basically to finish what I started a while ago). However, right now I'm tired, for it's almost 2 a.m. and I have to get up early for work. Therefore, I'll have everything up (including a small video) by tommorow night. Till then Wink

I recommend the third one since it is the official site. You'll probably want the Pro version since it can make smaller files.

I will not laugh. My dentist was telling me last week he still has a 450MHz machine. He installed Windows XP and McAfee Antivirus and now it runs WAY to slow. I have seen 66MHz machines that can boot faster than 800MHz machines. It all depends what operating system you're running.
