Hello,

my first post here http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif so please go easy on me http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

this is my first attempt to create my own movie. my first movie. i'm new to movie-making and video-editing in general.

i have watched several movies by other members...awesome job guys!!!

i'm using Vegas 4 (i'm still in the learning mode)... one movie i watched has that cool "motion effect": pilot ejects from the plane and the camera seems to lose its focus and it shakes (timeline: 3:28sec). the movie i'm talking about is "superior_fighters".
how was this achieved? is there a special filter used? or some other advanced techniques were used?

thanks for all replies.

Hello, i made that movie "superior fighters", glad you liked it http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I used a blur effect in that shot. I keyed in when the picture was going to blur. I did frame by frame in that scene so i could see when the blur should begin.

Play around with keying, easy way to learn with vegas http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Hello,

thank you for your reply.

few more questions, hope you don't mind http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

what "blur" effect did you use? (there are few available in version 4.0)
did you get that motion effect by playing around with the keyframes? *those diamond-shaped objects* zoom in/out, move the big F window left/right?

on the subject of codecs...
i do not have DivX (i dont want any spyware just for the sake of movie). i guess that's the best compressor around.
i have "Xvid MPEG-4 Codec". i heard it's good. what's your opinion on that?

approximately what size (MB) will i get for a 5min movie with res of 352*240?
