A little while ago this steam engine came near to where I lived and I took some so so videos of it. It is small at first but gets bigger about half way through it.
I took it with a camera so the video is not that great but still it is a live steam engine. I hope you enjoy it a lot.

On the main page of my website scroll down to the date "Friday October 31st 2008" and click the link there to go see it.

The song in the video is one I wrote [words and music] called "Kingdom of love". I am singing and a guy named Richard Fordham is doing the background vocals and ALL of the instruments. He is VERY talented.

Enjoy

Video is the way to go. What did you use to edit the video. I'm just starting to do this?

I signed up to U Tube and linked the Gallery as my Main Page.
Hopefully it will attract more vewers.

Ok well I did it in a round about way.
As I use a camera and NOT a video camera the videos are in MOV format. The only thing I found that can use them so far has been adobe premiere. I am using the trial version of it. I make it into an AVI file. This can be over gigabyte in size even though the MOV is under 100 MBs.

Then I use Ulead to change it into and Mpeg 2 file which is reduced to about 400 MBs and this is what I upload to youtibe which converts it to and FLV format.

Seriously though if you are going to get a video camera get the one that uses tape as this is the true digital format. The others use a different format that not all programs can see. IE> hard drive, dvd, flash drive video cameras should not be used.

They might be convenient for some but if you want the best quality then go with the tape version as they record in true digital format straight up and then ANY software program from pinnacle to Ulead etc can edit it.

In the end I like Ulead products though for editing.

I hope that helps :)
