Hi all, While the above was true back in Sept 11 it only related to one disk with some very shaky and wind noisy footage from Pt McDonald to Willunga.
Out of it all I could probably put together about 15minutes of watchable footage without sound or comentary.
Music can be added and some of the engine sounds but the comentary is what would make it interesting but it would have to be by someone who knew who everyone was.
I hesitate to do it because I only know a bit about maybe half the people on that section of ride.
Anyhow I was at Prof's last week and he gave me 7 video tapes of footage to extract from tape to disk
That is done now but only one tape was of Mega Ride and a lot of that was the same footage I already had.
Apparently there is a second mega ride tape but it's stuck in Paul's broken camera and they can't get it out without voiding warranty etc ...
All the other tapes were of SA Musters and Rides and all of similar quality Bouncy and full of wind noise.
Now please don't take my comments about quality as a put down on the photographer.
In fact it's quite a good job given the equipment and given that it's mostly taken from the back of a bike.
So where are we now.
I certainly could not put together anything like a watchable DVD of the ride with what I have.
If I had ANY footage taken by Anyone of the first part of the run that would be a different matter !
Bobba ! Ol750 ! Anyone else who took any video ??
I could also use still pics of any stage of the run but I don't have ANY at all.
I personally didn't take any pics because everyone else was and I only had my phone.
Then of course it comes down to to the massive investment in time required to edit something like this together
and if it's only for consumption by the few who went along it's really not worth the effort.
However a plan is forming ... Plot thickening ...
something along the lines of weekly video highlights on the forum
just small bits in installments could make it worth while and at the same time remain interesting
PM me if you have any video or stills. The more I have the better it can be.
