Did some interesting video capture and editing today. Created a small movie of the flight simulator world by capturing a simulator session on my DV camcorder. After capturing it I was then able to upload the DV file from my camcorder to my PC using my Firewire connection. I then edited the resulting file in Video Factory cutting out mistakes and so on to produce a more coherent video. After editing was complete I then saved it out of Video Factory as a DV file. I used TMPGenc to convert it to a 480 x 480 mpeg2 format. I used Nero to burn this to an SVCD format video disk. I can now play the little simulator movie on my DVD player.

We found a good kite flying field this weekend. It is called Buttonwood Park and is on Lantana Road across from the German American Club. The west end of the park is great for kite flying. Click here for Mapquest Location for Buttonwood Park. We flew the quad line Blasts until the wind starting dying down in the evening.
