I have been subscribing to


I have been subscribing to Videomaker for a while now and find the articles and advice to be very good, but I have to say that I have been less than impressed by the quality I’ve seen come from your "Videomaker Presents" vidcast.

As the adage goes, you should "practice what you preach" and if you are practicing what you preach, then I’m not so sure that the practices you are using are achieving the best results.

I think more than anything it’s the post production, but I’m not sure (I’m not the pro, after all). The resulting video that I downloaded through iTunes has very little contrast and almost no color saturation, plus it looks almost blurry (in normal display, not full-screen). It’s surprising to me as I’m thinking you are probably using some pretty good cameras, plus the file size is still 240MB for this seemingly lower quality video.

I understand that the file format is mpeg4, however, I’ve definitely seen videos of the same format with higher visible quality than your vidcasts seem to have.

Anyhow, I appreciate what you do and still really like the magazine, but I’m hopeful that you’ll look into improving the visible quality and teaching us, your viewers, how to achieve high video quality–even when its a download.
