  1. Since I'm trying to get into the professional world of video editing I have two screens. Picture these side by side rather than on on top of another, the eye/hand one on the left screen. I found both images doing just random Google image searches and thought they went well together because of their similar shape. You can also see all the Coaster POV files from the this site I still have to file away.
  2. A lot of people around where I live like Cold Stone, but I find their stuff to be almost too rich. Though I do check them out every month or so to see what their red pan special is. It can get kind of weird. Ever try Wasabi ice cream?
  3. The only software suggestion that comes to mind is for you to download the quicktime player http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/win.html if you haven't already, but all this will allow you to do is play the files, not edit them. Sorry I can't be more helpful, I've been using a Mac ever since I got monumentally fed up with Windows XP and all the security software you have to buy simplly to have less viruses when going online...
  4. I know I'm coming in to this topic kind of late but seeing as no one answered this question I will. I remember reading or hearing somewhere that DLR in California has it's own self imposed height restriction, in that no ride is to be made taller than the Matterhorn. Supposedly this is to preserve the classic skyline of the park. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
  5. I like the War of the Worlds one. "Achoo" *Alien ship crashes*
  6. Yes I like the Legend of Zelda games but I can't really say I'm fanatical about them. I do have the next one preordered but am starting to wonder if Nintendo isn't simply going to bump it up to being released on the Revolution (something I preordered as well) so that their new system will have a killer app for launch. My Favorite? Well I have two. I'll always love Link to the Past (SNES) as it was the game that introduced me into the series, however The Legend of Zelda I had the most emotional involvement in while playing was Majora's Mask.
  7. Just found this interesting artical: http://www.local6.com/news/6681871/detail.html The crowds are due to chinese new year apparently.
  8. In the actual independant film industry Final Cut Pro seems to be the editing Program of choice, though you need a Mac to run it and the program itself isn't cheap (Around $600). Most of Hollywood edits on Avid, but a cheap Avid setup will set you back about $20,000 (I'm not kidding). I personally have Final Cut Pro as I intend to make a career out of filmmaking. I love the Program and can say in complete honesty that I've never had it freeze or crash on me. You can do a ton in Final Cut Pro, but because of how many options it gives you it'd probably be to complicated for someone who has very little to no familarity with digital editing.
  9. Curious about this ride and how a lot of the newer B&M inverts don't have the intensity of some of their older ones. Isn't Nemesis one of the first B&M inverts?
  10. I'm no real expert on the No Limits program either. In fact I don't even own the game, but it looks like your helix could do with some banking, though come to think about it, you're probably aware of that already. As For ideas. You don't see too many wooden coasters out there anymore with a trick track segment. Come to think of it the only one I know of that has trick track is Shivering Timbers.
  11. Another quick Question for Robb about the Videographers board. I don't have any video's to post but I can I still start a topic in the forum? I just thought it would be nice to have a thread in which TPR members could request certain coaster POVs.
  12. I tend to prefer airtime to overbanked turns. So when I went to Cedar Point in 2003 I found myself marathoning Magnum (there was literally no line to get on the ride) and only rode Millienium Force twice. Magnum, like any other Arrow, you need to ride twice to decide if you like it or not. The first time you will get the shit knocked out of you. After that you'll know where all the major bumps are and will be able prepare youself for them, making your second ride much more enjoyable.
  13. Great! Once I get POV footage from some coasters I'll be sure to post it there. Quick question though, since the rules thead in the Videographers forum is locked, I see that you have to upload the files zipped. Are there any free programs out there that will zip files for me? I'm running Mac OS X tiger on a G5.
  14. I'm downloading it now, but it's really slow going even though I have broadband. Though this may be just because everyone else is trying to download it too.
  15. Not sure what you mean by this. SFMW has animals as well. I voted for SFMM simply because I haven't yet gotten the chance to visit SFGAd. I hope some day TPR plans to do an America theme park trip. I'd sign up for that in a second, as there are so many east coast and midwest parks I have yet to visit.
  16. I just thought I'd create a topic where people can post info on any Amusement Park deals or promotions going on right now to help out those, (like me) with limited cash flow. (I'm new to TPR so please correct me if there is a topic already like this one) The only thing I know of going on right now is that AAA is having Disney month for it's members. I'm heading down to SoCal for spring break in april and AAA quoted me a price staying at the Ramada four nights, three days with 3 park hopper tickets as $280 per person.
  17. Just curious. I'm really late in getting in on this (just joined the boards a couple weeks ago) but I just want to know how long your waiting list is right now? I mean is it worth the 39 cents postage to send you a check that will just come back to me the begining of next month? I would really like to go though and have a strange feeling that this will be my only chance to attend a TPR trip as my life is promising to become extremely busy from the fall of 2006 to as far in the future I can foresee.
  18. Most Camcorders now that do have a still shot feature don't record the still shot to the DV tape. Instead they require a seperate memory card. So unless you do take 3 mega pixel still shots using the still camera function your grabs off of moving video you took won't really improve.
  19. ^Thanks for the info. I wonder if Sony will figure out a way to get around the lowlight problems.
  20. I'm still not that familiar with all the acronyms refering to camcorders so I looked up CMOS on Wikipedia (which I know is not as accurate as some people think) and here's what came up: Short for complementary metal oxide semiconductor. Pronounced see-moss, CMOS is a widely used type of semiconductor. CMOS semiconductors use both NMOS (negative polarity) and PMOS (positive polarity) circuits. Since only one of the circuit types is on at any given time, CMOS chips require less power than chips using just one type of transistor. This makes them particularly attractive for use in battery-powered devices, such as portable computers. Personal computers also contain a small amount of battery-powered CMOS memory to hold the date, time, and system setup parameters. I hate to be ignorant about something that may be obvious to a lot of other people, but I can't, for the life of me figure out how this would effect low light performance.
  21. Glad you like it. How's the battery life? When I looked at it at the store the battery compartment seemed really small.
  22. The DCR-PC55 does look like a cool little 1CCD camera but I did some reasearch on it and it does't allow any lens attachments whatsoever. If I do buy one of these small cameras I need one with the ability to attach a wide angle lens and UV filter. It seems though that Sony has released a 3CCD (3 chips, one for each color) counterpart to this one, the DCR-PC1000. I went out to my local camera store today and compaired the two, the PC1000 looked like it has the very same body type as the PC55 but it's LCD screen isn't as big and the top part of it was larger because, I assume, the 30mm lens and viewfinder (the PC55 has no viewfinder) takes up more space. To my joy it did have the ability to attach a wide angle lens and filter but both the store clerk and I were unable to find a infrared nightshot mode which is normally standard on all sony Camcorders.
  23. I too am wondering what type of camera is the lipstick camera. Is it a three CCD? And what does it use for video, flash memory cards or mini DV tapes? And no I do not intend to use it for coaster POVs' I'm a film student and am interested for something smaller than what I have (a canon XL2) for situations where a big camera can get in the way.
  24. As much as I'd hate to say it I just found TPR off google a week ago, but I have enjoyed this past week of reading the forums and I hope to be a long time poster from now on. As an introduction I have prepared a four month portrait Odyssey for your enjoyment (and my shame). This is me in September. This is how I got from then to now. This is me now (slightly out of focus).
