Ive been thinking about something and I'm not sure what to do first.

Online editing
or
Final sound mix?


Some stills for your pleasure...

Do your sound mix first. It'll take longer. Consider your online edit the final step -- that is assuming you're finishing on video. If you had edited the old traditional way on a flatbed, what you'd have done is make a slop print from your work print -- a crappy reversal B&W print. You'd use that to do your sound mix to, while your negatives and work print went to the negative cutter.

Pics look nice. A bit squeezed though.

Question about the squeezed looking pics. Is that a result of making the pics? They look 640-480 -- so is that what you digitized at, or were you at a DV ratio of 720-480?

Ratio of 720 x 576.

To be frank...I'm not really in the know when it comes to stuff like that.

Well, here's the place to begin. The more you know about the craft, the better you'll be. You can more precisely communicate to people what you want -- and they won't be able to get things by you that you don't want. Your crew and collaborators will also respect you more, because you'll seem like you have more experience. As well, by knowing their language it'll display a sense of interest in what they're doing, and people love to feel appreciated. It's all a learning process. A bit of advice...

Oh yes, thanks...I was talking about compressing images.

The online edit/sound mix thing was because I've heard different things from different people.

Cool. One tip I find when making stills from the editing viewer is that I never save it as a jpeg. A weird compression occurs. I usually do a pict, then transfer it to jpeg in Photoshop.

Just to follow up on the pic compression thing...when I export stills, they're horizontally squished, and I think it has something to do with how the 720x480 aspect ratio for video is based on non-square pixels. I think 720x540 is the correct adjustment, but I'll have to check up on that.

Kotte, I saw that teaser you briefly posted online the other day, and the photography was gorgeous. Kudos again on that.

Of course, the logical solution is just to resize it in Photoshop...

Having trouble viewing the teaser. Keeps stopping midway. BTW, it's a dolly not a zoom.
