Interesting uuuiiiooop. Your first design doesn't solve for me either (the ball rolls through the goal without going in completely). What machine do you use???

Thanks, uuuiiiooop: That one works perfectly fine, I'll get to recording it.

Progress report, I've got the titles down and now it's all smooth sailing :toot: .

IGLima, if you're still updating the OP: I'd like to replace my two designs with these:

I am now ready to get this party started.

Are you adding collabs to this video or did we decide on a separate one?

I'm pretty sure the collabs should be in a separate video, sorry...I'm just so swamped with this one as it is XD

In Windows Movie Maker: right click, press V on your keyboard. Then choose "Speed up, double" as many times as necessary--I usually require 2 of them, so the finished product 400% of original, recorded, laggy speed.

In Windows Live Movie Maker: ???

Okay, I give. WLMM is just too bloody hard to operate. I'm just going to publish the cinematic titles and whatnot to .wmv's and then "bounce" them into plain old Windows Movie Maker on my other comp. Best of both worlds...since there's pretty much nothing else I like about Live Movie Maker.

Micro-BUMPdate: Matching titles to audio nowww... :lol:

Bumpdate 2: 50%75% with above...

DONE! Now to add the contraption clips, adjust transitions/effects and fix timing...:)

New post because the previous one seems a bit out of date to me now...

There's been a little problem. Once I have all the video clips imported, for some reason the video is now nearly an hour long (!!). I'm cutting out the lag sections and speed-trimming the contraptions (i.e., ball rolling for a long time on a horizontal platform), but this is going to take some time with ~42 designs ALL having this lag problem.

Good news, in spite of this, I'm halfway done with the video and am now looking up some more DRAMATIC songs to go with the theme. For those of you on IRC yesterday, this video will have a bit of a surprise. For those of you who were not...that's two surprises. ;)

{???}, out.

woo party :toot:

42 designs...hmm what a coincidence. ;)

sounds awesome...i know most of the previous vids are in x2 speed or something similar.. maybe try that if it doesn't mess up the original eloquence of everyone's designs it has worked okay in the past imo. sounds like you are putting some serious effort into this :D

looking for dramatic jams right now for you... lol

There's more than one reason I let ken75 in so readily and willingly ;) Nix the little "~" sign I made up there--it's exactly 42 designs :cool: :cool: .
And I'm doing more of a ~Jon~ style edit: "speed up the slow parts, slow down the ipecac parts." But if anything is going to eat up my time it's syncing the rest of the movie up with the music...

And thanks in advance babits ;)

Edit: All right, folks. Crisis averted, the first round of lag elimination editing has reduced this movie to a viable 13 minutes and 4 seconds. Subsequent rounds and movie maker magic forthcoming. :)

Edit 2: Just under 11 minutes, two songs added+synchronized with video. Two more, and then it's all just rapid-fire clicking. The lengths I'm going to to find these songs...I've worked on videos for hours before, but this has taken almost 18 hours so far!
