OI! Just got a Quicktime streaming server account to play with, what a coincidence.

Uh, "making me do video"? Shoot? Edit? Web deliver? All that? What are you gonna be tackling?

Oh arr, well, all of the above

Mostly just editing right now. The shooting stuff were doing in theory and the practical part is left up to me to figure out, they also give me free access to digital video cameras. Me, with a video camera? Warr harr harr!

We'll also be doing some compositing, as well as some director intergration around Augast.

For now, mostly editing. I'm at a loss when it comes to how all this is meant to work. Well, not really but I'm still rather green in the video world and was wondering if anyone knew of any happening comunities/knowledge bases for this area of multimedia? This place is great for web design but a lil lacking in the more high-end motion arts.

So, ya'll know of any 'Video' Asylums? -- I've found some usefull stuff through search's and all but sometimes asking the people in the know can point you down a greener path with prettier flowers that smell just that lil bit sweeter.

"Quicktime streaming server account" Ooohh.. Sounds like fun. Didn't know you needed a special server to stream quicktime! Already a helpfull tip! Yay!

From what I've seen I don't like it! Played a few hours earlier and found no joy in it. It likes a special kind of pointer (poster) file that goes to the streamer file, much like the Windows Media WMV/WMX.ASX crap. I find the WM text files an easier step in making it work though and I'm still sold on the WM8 encoder for web deliverable (streaming) stuff. Bah.

The best place I've found for video editing discussion is the Adobe Forums, I really don't get out much in terms of video editing so... but the Adobe Forums are good, not communal like the Aslyum you know, but good info and heads around there. I could dig up a few spots for hardware tho if you're interested but it sounds like you've got that covered have fun

Wes is into it, Mobrul, Izzy, Milker, Kromaz Grumble? and a few others around here... perhaps if your title were more descriptive you might draw them like moths to a flame :P

hmmm ressources? for quicktime only?
check shows how funny QT can be.

but personally i dont do much QT. mainly editing "normal" video with Adobe Premiere. (best semi-professional editing/cutting program) can takes lots of aditional filters and plug-ins. but since you've got final cut pro... what am i talking? thats a killer pro-app. never got the chance to use it though.

if you go for web-streaming dont underestimate MS windows moviemaker. does the basic editing stuff and the WMV format is kinda good quality at low bandwidth.

Um, I dunno if you still on this project but video is something i do. Thats all the art i did last year in school. was in a video tech. class. so, dont know what you need help with (technical issues differ from program to program) but if you need help with asthetics (angles, lighting, transitions and the like) then just ask and ill see what i can do.

I know some stuff about premiere. coolest thing imo is the fact that you can export clips from premiere into photoshop, do photoshop manips, then just put them back into premiere. this is how you do lightsaber effects. . . etc.
