    That's great! If you don't have a career in marketing, you should - I bet you could come up with some great ad campaigns!

    Shucks you guys, thanx for the kind words :):)
    I actually cant stand watching it, I can see a million things i wanted to add/change... one of them being...
    Rofl! Good spot. This vid made me sleep deprived, im blaming that ;)

    Thanks Mom! Do u mind if i call u mom? I luv how ur into tanks & how proud of ur boyz u are. Your my vicarious tank lovin' intranets mommy. Hope thats cool ;D

    I used three in conjuction. Adobe Photoshop, Adobe After Effects and Adobe Premiere. You can download one month demos of these from the Adobe website :)
    Ive never used After Effects before, so to say it was a learning experience is an understatement :eek: I tend to ask for trouble... choosing to try and animate an explosion of glass, fire and water in an unfamiliar program probably wasn't my smartest move ;) Combined with my ''if i push this button what will happen?'' approach to learning made for one long learning curb.
    Actually the 'making of the how to video' would have been far more entertaining - along the lines of that famous you tube video of the german kid freaking out and smashing up his keyboard ::);D

    Im happy to go into detail on the 'how to' of the 'how to' and the Adobe programs if anyones keen or has a specific question :)

    That was awesome!!!!! I think you missed your calling though...the Get the Word out contest was last time :lol:

    That might have inspired me to try those programs out...I'd like a better camera too. I only have Windows Movie Maker and I've always just milked it for all it's worth in trying to put effects in videos. The best we've done was making my best friend disappear in front of my brother (who didn't disappear) in a Health class video. Basicly it was us stopping the recording, yelling at my brother to not move an inch while my friend got up and ran off camera, then turning the recording back on. Then using WMM to add in little fairy magic sounds the moment he "pops" away. It was quite impressive for a freshman in highschool :D We did that video 4 years ago.

    Thanks again!
    I have sort of squeezed it into a 'how to' video category haven't I, trying to slide it in there without anyone noticing hahahaha am i bad?;D Truth is i had something different for the start which I couldn't submit because of my poor time management ;)
    Im looking forward to the next comp, this is fun :) maybe even do a collaboration next time round, I think that could be cool :)
