This group is for any amateur videographers (related to the world of mountain biking) to talk about editing, equipment, styles, share and comment on videos, and more!

I'll start off - I'm 15 years old and I film with a Sony HDR-SR12 and edit with Premiere Pro CS4 and After Effects CS4. I've been making videos for just under a year and created a company for my videos called OverDrive Media Group (www.overdrivemediagroup.com).

Here's my latest video (for those who haven't already commented in other threads):

Oh right cool. I absolutely adore Premiere Pro CS4 for all the features (of course AE too) but I've never seen what Premiere 7 looks like. Can you do any of the more advanced stuff on it?

Nicely filmed and edited! It can't be easy getting good camera angles for XC races, where the terrain isn'r very rough and the riders aren't bombing through anything, but you did a good job of it!

I have the same problem as you - I never have anyone to film with. My one riding buddy left to live in South Africa last year and I moved to Singapore. I end up having to film myself, like in that video I posted at the top of the thread.

I've been making films for about a year, I shoot with my Nikon D90. Made this vid a little while back. Check it!

yeah, it has a lot of stuff. I won't know for sure if it's as good as cs4 til December, cause I'm taking a graphic arts class and we spend december through April on video editing.. But the only bad thing about 7.0 is you. Have to sign in to an account to use some of the features.

Hi im super amateur but thats ok.

Can any one help me? I want to learn about lenses. I'm a real noob when it comes to it. I know what a fish eye and wide angle is but what are all the different sizes and types about and what are they used for? and whats a telephoto lense? Am I in the wrong thread?

No this is the perfect place for that kind of question.

Just like a wide angle lens "zooms the image out" and makes it wider, a telephoto lens does the exact opposite. It zooms the image in more than the normal zoom lens in the camera does. What do you mean by sizes and types? If you mean the mm measurement they list next to a zoom lens (for example 75-300mm), that refers to the amount the lens can zoom, 30 being a relatively wide shot and 300 being a very zoomed in shot, in basic terms.

Yeah I can see where that would get very annoying...

'SunPeaks with Justin' and from about 1.10 to 1.23. He does it in alot of his vids and I think it's real cool and original!
