Commitment: the state of being emotionally impelled to do something. My commitment is to making art, loving life and doing well.

Daily Artworks... my continuing challenge for 2015: Observe and record. Record and observe. And stretch - s-t-r-e-t-c-h - myself.
What will I discover?

Moving Along - Day 08

video
The same video as yesterday, but processed in Handbrake for iPad.
Will it show up when I open the blog on my iPad device?

The same video, but with its own resolution for the display properties.
Keep on trying.

Moving Along - Day 07

video
A title screen test with focus zooming in and out. The 996 KB mov. file Final Cut Pro X file imported directly to Blogger. Blogger default @ 320x266 pixels. How come it's letterboxed?

video
This is the same file uploaded to display at 800x450 so it's 16:9. It plays adequately, but, the thumbnail image is so degraded!

video
The same .mov converted in Handbrake to mp4. Default settings 320x226.



video
The same .mov converted in Handbrake to mp4. Display settings 800x448, the original dimensions of  the converted file.

Moving Along - Day 06

video

Here is the same project, but saved at 960x540, and reduced from 1.6MB in the .mov file to a mere 477KB in the .mp4 file.
Above displayed at 266x320 resolution, the Blogger default.
Below is the same project, at the resolution it was exported from FCPX and Handbrake - 960x540.

Moving Along - Day 05

video

Five second video of two still images, a cross-dissolve transition and a music clip.
FCPX master export file .mov for web hosting 1920x1080 QT AAC @ 6.4MB.
Handbrake conversion reduced .mp4 @ 1.6MB.
Video display size changed from default 266x320 to 450x800, which is 16:9 ratio.

A still photo image with transitions applied, shared out of Final Cut Pro X at 98.4MB.
Processed from .mov to .mp4 in the Handbrake converter. Compressed file size 1.4MB. Conversion took seconds!

Moving Along - Day 03

video

Here's another version of the same video clip I posted yesterday and the day before.
I processed this one from .mov to .mp4 in the Handbrake converter. Compressed file size 2MB from 120MB. Let's see how this one turned out.

Moving Along - Day 02


video

So, here's a 1080p HD video processed in Final Cut Pro X and exported with the You Tube settings. And then I retrieved it from You Tube to place here on the blog.
The file size for the original .mov video was 120 MB, and the file size compressed to .mp4 was 1.3 MB.
I wonder what it looks like?

Moving Along - Day 01


This month I am working on video, and I am using this blog as a testing area for video experiments and tests and trying out tricks and techniques.

So far: Blogger tells me: 
1.  "There was an upload error."




2. "We are sorry but there was an error uploading your video."

And I respond:
3. "This is a part of my learning curve."  and 
4. Better luck tomorrow."
