Creating Overlays

Yesterday I was having FUN creating overlays.  Video overlays.  Examples:


At first it was in the afternoon and I was just using the light coming through the leaves of a tree outside my window to create pretty green bokehs.  I’m thinking in the fall when the leaves turn yellow and get really pretty, I’ll do it again.  Then again at night I did a dark green/blue one.  then I had a bunch of notebooks/binders/textbooks for school and I zoomed in close on them until they were blurry and made another overlay.  Then I started using colored PAPER!

Oops!  Now I’m telling you my secrets to creating overlays for my videos in the future!  Well, whatever! 😉  I’ll probably post again today, but that is if I have more post ideas… which I probably don’t.


YouTube Videos

Here are some videos I haven’t shown you before…

The next video I’m going to make that is an edited video that might be much later probably featuring me and Prima.  It’s going to be with the song (instrumental version) Again by Secrets in Stereo.  I’m going to bear with the Video Pad editor (the SLOW SPEED OF GENERATING PREVIEWS!!!!) and do an overlay.  Tell me, which overlay looks the coolest?:


Just tell me if you like 1, 2, 3, or 4.  Dedication to you in the description for the one chosen :).  And also a dedication if  you have a good title suggestion.  My idea was Back in the Saddle Again.  Since the song title is called Again…?

I’m trying to find a fast, good, FREE, video editor since I don’t really like WMM.  WMM is a GREAT video editor, does all the raw video needs and everything, but just not as great for video editing.  Video Pad is a GREAT video editor but as I said above it is SUPER SLOW.  And the overlay text sucks… :L.

I’m not going to give you too many links or song ideas I have or else they wouldn’t be a surprise… :D.

Comment, PLEASE tell me what you think because I am practically stumped for which overlay I should use ;).  Also, does anyone know of any free YouTube downloads for a rainbow overlay styled thing?  If you look at some of gezzcanezz’s videos she has a cool rainbow overlay and it looks really cool. 😀

Awkward title…but yeah!

So this Saturday at 3:30 I’ll be having a groundwork lesson with Prima.  If you didn’t know yet, me and Prima aren’t communicating the best during lounging time… :L.   But I hope more time on the ground with her will help me and build our relationship in the saddle as well.

So I hope that goes well….RIGHT!  I’m starting to lease again this Saturday (If I can make it through the first week of school ;()

I want to see Cavalia really bad.  And it’s in my area right now.  I’m trying to get my parents to let me go…but it is SUPER expensive but a once in a life time chance…ERR!

And searching for a THEME!  Right now thinking of switching over to Chunk…but that’s maybe temporary maybe not…

That’s it for now 🙂

Garrods Today???

I may be going to Garrods today just to walk around take pictures of the horses and just visit the horses I haven’t visited in a while because of leasing.  I’m not sure if I am actually going to go but I might.  If I do I will make a post of my favorite photos that I took.

Okay, I have to admit that I am running out of post ideas.  I haven’t been riding recently and don’t really have an interesting stories to tell or informational posts popping up in my head.

I know I have the riding aids but those are hard to write.  Extremely hard to write.  It’s called bringing up every thing your instructor said to you about that aid about doing something without mentioning the other aids that are very important in doing that thing.

I haven’t being taking horsey pictures in a long long long long long long long long long long long time.  First Prima then vacation.  So I hope I do get to take pictures of my horsey friends.

I did have a bunch of posts I meant to publish but now that they are “expired” it’s kind of pointless to publish them now.

Currently doing some editing to HC.  Finding edits to do to HCE.  Noticed the new “logo?” It’s Rey.
