Soundslides and another program I can't remember off the top of my head are what most newspapers use.

Premiere or Premiere Elements is a good compromise, however. It is in the Adobe family, so if I like it, and can eventually swing for a full CS upgrade, I'd get Premiere with it.

My present employer, no. The two multimedias I have done that the paper linked to were posted on my YouTube account because they don't want to pay for the bandwidth a popular presentation would generate.

If I were to change jobs, who knows.

I see they have a new version available that also handles video.

But don't know if I want to stick with this program when I should be working on something more "industry standard."

May I ask what you use currently Red...?


Magix Xtreme Photostory on CD & DVD 6.

I've "asked" that my birthday present be a copy of Premiere Elements 7 to see if I like it enough to go the whole hog on it.

Besides, the only way I can top this year's video next year will be if I actually have video as well as stills (I used some 7-13 shot bursts from the 40D to simulate video in three spots in the show). So I'll need something that can handle video as well as stills.

Yes, they are for sale.

No, I can never sell enough of them, despite the coach paying for the creation of the 25-minute masterpiece and buying seven at a discounted price.

:D



The Bluejays, one of my favorite groups, Justin Hayward and John Lodge, formed after the break up up of the Moody blues.

I have my eyes on a quad core Gateway that comes with four gb RAM standard.

It's pretty far down my list of items to purchase, however. Studio lighting is at the top, then backgrounds are second, followed by a 70-200 f 2.8.

And I estimate that I put probably 100+ hours into the creation of it this year. That is working with images already created for other uses.

It was the most complex multimedia I have ever created. It was so complex, the 25-minute video takes up half of the space on a blank DVD.

It also made working on it fun because I had to frequent save, close the program, and restart it to avoid crashes. I could not play more than four minutes of it straight on my computer or I'd cause a crash.

Time for more powerful video software.

It was VERY well received at the awards banquet tonight. In addition to the seven discounted copies the coach bought for the seniors and coaching staff (she also paid for the creation of it) we sold five at $20 each. We hope to pick up a few more sales once I figure out how to put it on our Photoreflect website.

:D
