titusnowl: (rock out)
I need to know of a program to use to cut smaller clips from .avi video files.
titusnowl: (Great War)

It's not what I would have liked to have done ideally, but actual footage of WWI is hard to come by, and battlefield footage nearly impossible.  I did what I could with what I had.

1. Archduke Ferdinand arriving in Sarajevo
2. Declaration of war in Paris
3. Peace rally in London
4. British recruiting station
5. Canadian troop train
6. Various armies on the march
7. The "taxis of the Marne"
8. French 75 guns
9. German trench stuff - pumping an old one, digging a new one
10. British troops receiving their rations
11. French refugees fleeing the front
12. Aftermath of the sack of Louvain
13. Still-picture slideshow of battles and aftermath

The song is "No One Would Riot For Less" by Bright Eyes.

I made a "Dear Sister" parody

Next vid idea:  Casino Royale to Debonair by the Afghan Whigs
titusnowl: (men and women tremble)
So I'm trying to learn to vid, right?  And I have a set of lovely clips in .avi format (not ENOUGH, but it's a start) and I have my .mp3 for the music and all, but WINDOWS MOVIE PLAYER DOESN'T FUCKING WORK.

Can anyone recommend me a different program to use to do the actual making-the-clips-and-music-into-a-vid bit?  I'm working in Windows XP and it has to be something I can obtain without paying for it.
titusnowl: (patriotic sharpe)
Things I would vid, if vidding was within the scope of my abilities:

"Heroes," the Wallflowers cover version: Sharpe/Harper.
And the guns shot above our heads
And we kissed as though nothing could fall
(This isn't a ship I ordinarily endorse, since the book!Sharpe and book!Harper are not gay in the least.  However, I must admit that the movies... well, suffice it to say that I have seen Daragh O'Malley rest his head upon Sean Bean's knee enough times to begin to waver in my convictions.)

"Dr Robert," either the original Beatles or the CCC "Pleasant Dr Robert" mashup: A bit of characterization fluff showing off Chase and his lovely hair.
If you're down he'll pick you up, Dr. Robert
Take a drink from his special cup, Dr. Robert

My self-control is not so finely tuned that I could keep myself from taking advantage of this line to showcase the scene in which Chase makes out with a nine-year-old.

"Sharp-Dressed Man" by ZZ Topp:  Another bit of fluff, starring Bertie Wooster.
Topcoat, top hat
I don't worry 'cause my wallet's fat
Of course it's a montage showing off his infamous dress sense (both the horrible things he chooses himself - white mess jacket, anyone? - and Jeeves doing up his neckties), with some shots of his assorted would-be fiancées during the chorus.
