YMCA

video

Finally! It's not perfect, but I'm tired of messing with this, and I'm too ashamed to admit how much time I wasted on this piece of nonsense, so you'd better spend four measly minutes watching this, and leave me lots of comments okay! (approx. 500 pics!)

P.S. You'll have to go to the side bar and pause mt playlist before you watch this silliness.

Blast!!! I just watched this on my downstairs computer, and the sync got screwed up.

It was great! Even though you included the snot picture in it. I especially liked the 4 minutes of black screen on the end!

I'm with Brad. I loved the whole thing... except the snot picture, which makes me gag. It was perfectly in sync for me. I'll have to add a link to that on Zach's computer... I have the feeling YMCA is going to be our theme song for the month!

That was seriously awesome. I loved the motion sequences.

Crap a dog that was just amazing! It made me realize just how remiss I am in my picture taking. I really need to try harder. Good job!!!

It was perfectly in sync for me too. I was amazed at your technological expertise, and it was funny too ;)

I espcially liked the one of Barak Obama as Hitler! You should post that pic all by itself. I found it deeply inspiring!

Thanks for the laugh, Renee! What a good use of 500 pictures.

Malauna said...

Ok, Renae, what program did you use? Did you have to set the time for each individual photo to do the super-cool stop-action sequencing? Inquiring minds want to know.

Malauna said...

Sabrina says: awsome stop action moves I like it !!!

Renae said...

Thanks for the praise everyone! I had a lot of fun making this, but it took so long that I'll not be tackling one like this again soon.

Malauna, I just used Windows Movie Maker. I think it comes with most computers. You can set a standard length of time for all of the pictures to be on. However, the fastest I could get them to go that way was one every half second. The beat on this song is just a hair faster than that, so yes, I had to trim time off of every individual shot. It will only trim or add time in 3 hundreths of a second increments, so it's impossible to get it exactly perfect, but I got pretty close. It did get slightly out of sync when it loaded online somehow, but I don't know how to avoid that.

I redid it without the Obama shot and the Bean as the Pope. I might switch them here. My conscience is bugging me slightly. I keep wondering if I've offended anyone. It's true that I'm no fan of Obama, but as for the Pope, I have nothing against the man what so ever, that pic just struck me as funny.

Trever & Heather said...

Hold on- you're related to Mr. Bean and Barrack Obama is a nazi? How do I miss these things?

Eyepoke said...

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT REPLACE THE OBAMA NAZI SHOT!!!!!!! I like the pope one too. PLEEEEEEEEEEEEASE LEAVE IT THIS WAY! I WOULD BE SOOOOOOOOOOOOO SAD. and if it helps, I will be offended too. Really I would. PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE!!!!!

I'm with J on this one please leave the Barack shot. I've been going around for about two months now refering to him as Hitler Jr. This pic gives credence to my claim! :)
