Thanks Deane. Some people were saying that the chaps across the pond could not view the footage because of music rights. Is this the case, if so what can we do?

Great video Lee! it really does show how fast the cars are!

By the way that Crash looked epic, It would look really cool in slow-mo.

I wonder how you produce a slow-mo on movie maker, will look into it for next video....I'm sure there will be more EPIC crashes within the next few meets.

I've been told it's quite easy to do slo-mo on movie maker, but videopad editor is a far better & easier to use piece of software.

Great video. Those mod crashes were awesome


I really like the widescreen, steady zoom and the picture quality - what camera are you using?

Music rights: most of the time I just risk it and if it gets blocked in the UK I either add another track without re-editing or I re-edit with the new music. The most sensible thing to do is to choose the music, put it in Movie Maker, post on YouTube and see what happens before you start editing.

Almost all the songs that are blocked in the USA are also blocked in the UK, so that shouldn't be a problem with being visible here but not in the States. What is a problem is Germany - most of my vids are blocked there. Is it something personal?

Another option is to go with obscure 'cover-band' versions of songs which rarely get flagged up by YouTube or are not copyrighted. Sometimes they are better versions. Some 80s German punk bands did some great covers - and they don't get blocked in Germany or anywhere.

Slow-Mo: easy to do in Movie Maker. Go to Video Effects, scroll down and drag "Slow Down, Half" onto the clip. If you drag it again, it will slow it down more (see Jim's Luck Escape from the HO:GP for slo-mo in action). Using any of the effects more than once doubles the effect - brightness, ease-in etc.

Movie Maker is amazing for what it offers, but can crash a lot the more editing you do. So, always save after every small edit. I also have an old version of Adobe Premiere. I sometimes use it to edit a clip and then use that in Movie Maker. Premiere is also more flexible for editing the music track.

Andy, thanks for comments much appriecated. This is only my 2nd video but I am actually starting to love the whole editing thing, but WOW when you add the music the whole thing comes to life.

I will try the Slow-Mo later when I get home and re-create the two epic MOD crashes in Slow-MO.

And who know's, I may even have some old 80/90's Euro House music on offer for the next video. LOL


Thanks once again for all the tips.

Al, what crash was that? At what point of the evening did it occur and what cars were being used. If you let me know I will scour the footage again, it's never nice when you have a massive crash (I should know) but when watch agin on video then in Slo-Mo it feels well rather specatular.

Hmmmm, I think it was at the start or in the first couple of laps of maybe an F1 heat. At least if not all fours came together in the long esse bend at the end of the start finish straight. I remember after it happened you cam and told me that maybe Dave had told you that your camera had caught it. Sorry I can't provide any further information! No worries if you can't find it.
