I'm not sure if this will work (I had a quick search but couldn't find anything on uplading / sharing vids), I've spent a few hours yesterday and today shooting macros of soap bubbles finishing up shooting a short video of one using my EM5.

The heat of the continuous lighting I used set up a rapidly circulating "atmosphere" with the soap / water interface moving over the spherical surface of the bubble.

As I say, its my first go and I have still to find out how to slow it down properly (so far I can only get it down to half-speed) so any clues from the video savvy would be most welcome. (I'm using Magix MX)

Anyway, here it is (I hope) all comments gratefully reveived

Video pad is free and has facility to slow it down. Glad your enjoying experimenting with the video feature, I've done quite a lot this year and quite impressed what you can do with it.

Can't help with the speed settings Brian, but very impressed with the video.....a good example of how the mundane can look spectacular given the right circumstances.

Moviemaker, bundled with Windows 7, but also downloadable for older OS will slow it down to 0.125x Brian....

Thanks Roger and Ade,

I must have another look at Moviemaker Ade as I played with it yesterday but didn't find that function.

I've been trying to find some music to go with it today

if the above does not work or you simply don't wish to get the additional software, send me the file and i will slow it to anything you like - i shoot weddings and corporate and have fairly serious video kit that can do anythnig you can imagine (sadly)

Thanks Phil, I'm slowly getting there. I've now got to find out how to synch the slowed down vid to a sound track.

Isn't it funny how you get used to using one piece of software - ProShow Gold for AV shows in my case but struggle with another to do a similar job (more likely its just me that suffers from that Wink )

OK, thanks to Ade (and all who offered help) I now have the video slowed down and a sound track added. I'll need to check the license situation re: putting it up on YouTube as I think its only valid for personal /small Club show use.
Works on the PC, now I've got to sort out a TV version

soundtracks are autochecked by utube and stopped if the owners dont have an aggreement with U-Tube, most commercial music is fine as it then sends you a message saying adverts will appear on your video, so just upload and you will be fine.
In some cases certain tracks can not be seen by viewers in other countrys dependent again on the agreement with u-tube.

Just dont worry about going into to heavy checking as what im trying to say is u-tube will do that for from the embedded track information

If the video is full HD then consider vimeo as this is reputed to be far better for HD Video

Look at this site Creative Commons it gives some good info on what you can and can't use with links to music libraries that you can source tracks from... http://freemusicarchive.org/ is also another good place to look.

Thanks for all the help, I've found my answer in a combination of Moviemaker to create the video, then imported that into ProShow Gold where I added some stills AV and combined the two into rather a nice show for the Digital Groups AV comp in March.

So much to learn, so little time to do it Wink
