This last summer we took 2 camcorders and my laptop to the golf course. We learned a lot and now can do an even better job in the same amount of time. The initial problem with our playback was that we showed each short clip then that 3 to 15 second clip in slow motion. The 15 secvideos were just too long and the audience lost interest. A quick fix to the program and now just the last 3 seconds (the swing) of video is played back in slow motion. Having 2 camcorders the videos needed to be synched. I'm writing a quickie program to merge the catalog file. One other feature added was the ability to play back the videos by 4some. As each group comes to the teeshoot a short short video of less than 2 seconds. This creates a break record when doing the catalog function. I can use the new merge option to insert a large font slowed print of each players name(have list day before)justpriortothe video play. A future option will be to allow for video from camcorder #1 to play on large screen #1 and Video from camcorder #2 in time with each other.
So within 10 to 12 minutes after leaving the course the golfers are seeing the random playback of the round they just finished. A large font displays the player name. The view from behind plays at normal speed then the last 3 seconds play in slow motion. Then the side view camcorder video plays. followed by the last 3 seconds (the swing) in slow motion. Then the next player in that foursome.
Once that is playing. The DVD copies can start to be burned. For a fee.
They loved the videos at both events. That was the part we missed videoing. Theyreally enjoyedthe show.
Anyway there is a thread about "Digital Video Showdown" where everybody gets called out on the sad state of Digital Video. Come on over if you dare.
