Something I have been wanting to do for a while now is build a video converter into my Module Builder to enable automatic conversion of video into the various web friendly formats but I could never find a way to do it.
Over the weekend I discovered this tutorial on playing back any video in Adobe AIR. The tutorial runs through how to set up a NativeProcess to hook into FFmpeg to stream video from any format into FLV. FFmpeg is an open source media library for playback and conversion of almost any type of video or audio and is used by VLC and many other applications. I finally had a possible way of converting video within an AIR app! And one of the great things about this is since its using the NativeProcess API the conversion works asynchronously and the app doesn’t lock up while its converting.
I have just uploaded my new showreel to Vimeo. A couple weeks ago I was listening to TripleJ in the car and I heard this amazingly bizarre, vintage, sci-fi, horror metal song come on. Unfortunately I missed what it was called or who the artist was so I spent ages trying to figure it out. Read More…
A collection of awesomeness from Vimeo…
A couple weeks ago I bought a GoPro HD Here camera. The video below is the first test using the camera mounted to my helmet. I was planning on doing some shots with it mounted to my board but the sticky stuff failed the second I started moving!
I’m pretty happy with the quality of the video, except the waterproof casing kept fogging up in the centre of the lens which rendered a lot of footage unusable. I shot at 1280×720 @ 60FPS. The clips with the tilt shift effect were graded with Magic Bullet Looks and the others just have a simple curves adjustment applied to them.
Some inspiring videos…
This is a little delayed but about two weeks ago I went back up to Horsham and filmed an edit for Tyler. I finished it last week and it has been up on Vimeo for about a week now. Check it out below. The intro title was drawn in Illustrator and then brought into After Effects to animate and finish, then once the editing was done I graded using Magic Bullet Mojo. The video was shot on my Canon 7D at 720p 50fps.
