Winter

Recommended Posts

I received this via email, but thought I would answer it here as well as via an email

 
I'm a forum member but I cannot write a message directly to you from the forum.
 
I like the intro of your "new" audiovisual "Winter" very much.
Especially the howling wind , with the overlapping music coming in, is very well done !
 
I also like the distorsion of the trees and the title (Winter) coming through it.
I wonder how you made this ... using a filter in Photoshop ?
Is it possible to give me some more hints ?
 
The introduction to Winter probably looks more complex than it actually is. The first image is a vertical blurred image of the trees done in Photoshop, but the transition of that image onto the screen is over a black background. It uses the gates transition from the outside to the centre with a strong smoothing line applied to that transition.
 
The title was created in PTE and it starts off compressed (zoomed via the width only) and then pulls out so it can be read, but The text has a fair degree of opacity. Then a sharp image of the trees appears with a standard fade while the text fades away. What helps is the music and sound effects of the wind setting the scene.

I thought this AV was very good particularly the intro and sound. At the moment the temperature in the highlands is about -12 deg (and not much less in northern England) so it was a very appropriate sequence as well.

 

Well done.

That show is quite old, because all the images were shot before we left for Australia so at least 10 years I think.

Glad you liked it.

Hi Barry,

I particularly like this show, and would very much like to know the name of the music you used for it.  Also do you have this music available at all?  Thanks,

Deirdjan

The music track was called Dominions and was part of an album of Royalty free music we used to sell called Autumn. (no longer available) It was on the Medwyn Goodall label at the time. I don't think the artist was Medwyn Goodall though, because at the time he had a number of artists on his record label.

I remember Winter very well Barry, I loved it very much and still do especially visiting most of the locations in your AV. Nice to see the video again.

Not having much luck with my Poppy Dog AV its all in tact with the audio and have managed to remove a couple of slides using movie maker, I haven't the option of saving as an MP4, I might consider adding it on youTube, if the quality is not acceptable I can delete it. Photodex only added one slide from the dvd and warned me of missing files.

Although I have 3 slide shows that have been successful via photodex from dvd and saved as MP4 and on youtube, I can only guess the Poppy Dog was one of my first so not too familiar with the program. I can't recall saving anything any differently mind.

I have 2 more I am going to try from dvd, called Iona and The Arran Adventure, although a little dated now its still nice to see the images and music. I will have a go🙄
