Wow, what a process!

August 2, 2009 3 comments

This video was essentially done in a day.  I started early in the morning.  I had a family game night for the kids, then immediately kept at it.  I finished at 3am.  I set it to render in After Effects.  In the morning it wasn’t done.  I stopped it, thinking it messed up.  I started it again.  It took 7 1/2 hours, but when I watched it there was only 24 seconds.  So again I started it to render.  This time it looked like all was good.  It still took about 3 hours, and for a 1:44 video it was a 14gig file!

Here’s the youtube version.  I’ll be writing an article in Christian Video Magazine on Kinetic Typography, and this, my first real experience.  What a process it was!

Philosophical Considerations for video ministry

Always Amazed

I’m always amazed at how long it takes to make a two minute animation!  Well, especially in my case, when you edit a little at night, and a little in the morning before going to my real job, it’s b_encountersslow moving.  This one probably took me a couple of weeks. But it pays off in the end.  I’m having a lot of fun learning the power beast of a program that After Effects is.  Some techniques I learn, or steal, others I stumble upon myself.  I think that is the goal of all of the tutorials online, to get you to experiment for yourself.

 

My latest endeavor in the video realm is a new series from Mark E. Moore’s book “Encounters with Christ”.  I don’t know how many of these I’ll end up making.  Probably 5 or 6, that will become a decently priced fishxpressions bundle on www.sermonspice.com.  Next up on the slate- Nicodemus.  Then I have to think about Spanish versions, and possibly my first video  offerings exported in HD.
