And I am hoping to get my fellow LJs inputs here. I really am starting to like how I have the tools laid out, and although DC tubing adjustments need to be made (blast gates aren’t exactly where I want them), I am close enough to call it good for now… So what I have left to be concerned about is power. I have only 1 15 amp outlet (20 amp breaker) in the shop. For the longest time, I have been running an extension cord in to the laundry room to power the tools, and run the DC off of the shop power. (this is not a good solution, but the only one I have for now). So obviously I need more power in the shop. But I need some input on WHERE to put the panel. I know I want a sub panel, but I am not sure about what the restrictions are distances and such for a sub panel.
So as I pan around, shooting from various angles, I am going to do something a little different from what I see in other shop tours, is that I am going to be using the zoom lens a bit more than most folks do… No sense in stopping the camera, walking across the room, and starting up again to get a tighter shot right?
Now I have some concerns about creating this video, since it has been, oh 10 years or so since I have done any serious video editing…
#1. I am on Linux now, no more Mac for me (professional reasons). Does anyone here have any experience using LiVEs, and if so, can you give me some tips on creating slide in text banners like those that you see on news programs?
#2. I am planning on running background music, as well as narration. Should I process the audio tracks separate from the video, or with the video? I simply want to run music fading in and out during transitions, then switch to the narration.
#3. In order to avoid any possible copyright hassles, can anyone point me to a good repository of copyleft / creative commons licensed music that I can use?
Honestly, I have been itching to do some video work for a LONG time, so this is more or less of an excuse to try to hone skills I gained in college, and haven’t used much since…
