In case anyone has wondered where I've been lately, I've been busy working on

My annual highlight DVD of the MHS girl's volleyball team.
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.
Good luck with the sales then.
Best wishes on your sales, Jamie.
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.
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.
Maybe more powerful 'puter, too, RW!
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.
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."
Is there any chance an employer would buy it for you? They could deduct it as a business expense.
My sons say that Sony Vegas Studio has a good following. I'm not sure how that would compare with your current progs. They work in AV. predominantly, sound. Their main focus is conferences, concerts and video conferencing. HTH
