This is my first attempt at creating a video using the Flip Video Camera. This film is of the interrior of my listing at 8 Wildwood Drive in the gated community of Lake Monticello.
Taking the pictures were fairly easy. I tood several small clips of most of the rooms. The trick was holding the camera steady and not moving too fast so that the viewer would n't get motion sickness. Then I downloaded it all onto my computer. The next step was to edit each of the individual segments using the cut option. Then it was time to create the movie dragging each of the segments into the correct order. It was easy to add a title and music in the Flip video software. Finally it was time to download to Youtube. This last step took several tries, but was finally accomplished.
Now I wanted to find the embed code so that I could publish the video to Active Rain. I searched my youtube account and couldn't find the embed code anywhere. Finally I queried youtube help and found out that if I played the video and clicked on one of the icons on the video screen I could find the embed code.
I am optomistic that the next time I attempt to do this it will go must faster. Now I need to work on the actual filming.
I think that this is a good tool for showcasing my listings.
