    Just wanted to thank you for sharing your video. My 3-year old loves to watch them on my laptop and identify the spots we visited in the world.

    Did you have any copyright warning issues when uploading to YouTube?

    Yes. But usually only Warner Music Group (WMG) will block the video. Just do a test of the music before you choose it. Even if you do choose a WMG song, you can get it on by claiming "fair use", i.e. not using it for profit.

    I didn't see the new video until today, and WOW, you've outdone yourself! I used your first Disney vid as a primer to get my toddlers psyched for their first Disney trip, and they ROCKED out to your new one today as well!
    Thanks for sharing!

    Hey, thanks for pointing me to this! I noticed some extra activity, but I couldn't figure out where it was coming from.

    Hi, ya'll are awesome!! What great imagination!!

    I wanted to chime in for the PC users. I use Power Director from Cyberlink. The version I have (8) is under $100. The newer versions have blueray capabilities. I bought this because my video camera is AVCHID (a Canon Vixia) and Widows Movie Maker doesn't support this format. For those with limited editing skills, you can pick what clips/pictuers you want in your movie, click on slideshow, add the music, and the software will do the rest. You can add credits, cartoonish effects, effects on the clip (like grainy or B&W), and trasition effects between clips. You can upload to facebook or youtube, burn to DVD with a menu and scene selections. In addition to what it comes with, you can download more frames, effects, and menus for FREE from cyberlink that others have made and shared.


    This is an example. This is a slideshow of our Disneyland trip in 2010. I'm still working on getting better (still a novice). I'm not sure if it will work cause it's on facebook. I tried to upload to youtube, but I have since moved the files around that made up this slideshow.

    I know you've heard this a million times before but just wanted to tell you that I SOOOOO enjoy your videos! You have such a beautiful family and an obvious talent. Thank you for sharing with the DISboards! Maybe my family will see you dancing in Disney someday and join in the celebration! haha

    Hi! Your first video was such an inspiration to me! I probably showed that video to my kids once a day on average before our last trip. I had to work a TON of overtime and your video helped get me "out the door" on the days I didn't wanna!

    I subscribed to your you tube channel (hope that isn't creepy). Just cause I love to see the fun your family has on vacation.

    Finally, I can't believe how big those kids have gotten. I especially noticed it with the girls. Wow.

    I did not realize you had started this thread. Sorry to ask my questions on the other one.

    As I mentioned before, great videos. We have watched them all and it has inspired us to be more creative rather then just taping something we will never watch.

    We have iMovie09 so hopefully I can cut my teeth on that and see where it takes us. Thanks for all the tips :thumbsup2

    Ok I may be really lame but when I go to all these videos it says content not made public by content owner. What am I doing wrong?

    For anyone looking to do one of these videos and specifically, planning to use iMovie to make it - I thought I would share what I found after putting together our latest vacation video last week (which - shameless plug - you can see here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CNrQFbP_D20).

    The problem with this video is that there is phantom audio showing up between about 2:00 and 2:30. This audio is not there when I watch in iMovie, where I assembled the video. Just when I export to DVD or YouTube. To make things extra weird, the audio is not from any part of my movie - it's from raw footage clips in my library that didn't even make it into the movie.

    The phantom music is from an iMovie glitch. In iMovie you have the option to fast-forward your footage to either a pre-set speed (I believe they offer 150%, 200%, and 400%) or you can select your own speed. I usually selected my own speed to make the clip fit the timing of my music. And if you watch my movie you'll see that I used a LOT of fast-forwarding.

    It's using these oddball speeds (like 183%) that result in the glitch. If I'd just stuck with the pre-set speeds, I would have been fine. (The only other time I have fast-forwarded in iMovie, I did a simple, pre-set 200% that worked just fine.)

    I don't think there is anything I can do to fix this. I have tried stripping out all audio and adding it back in, but the phantom music just shows back up in a different spot. I may just have to learn to live with it.

    Or... as someone on an iMovie forum offered when I was searching for a solution... bite the bullet, and buy Final Cut Pro!

    Hope this helps someone else avoid the same aggravation!

    First of all, nice video! You obviously have a great family to showcase!

    IT'S NOT YOUR RETIMING THAT DID THIS.

    Interestingly, I had the EXACT same thing happen on my second video (Wolfs Dance Branson). It was roughly at the two minute mark where bizarre audio from unused clips kept coming in, no matter how I tried to export it. (Like you, the problem didn't exist when it was playing in iMovie.) It was beyond frustrating. As you can imagine, I spent nearly a month editing this together thinking it was going great, only to find I couldn't get it out of iMovie. I made multiple calls to Apple Support, the Apple Store, and iMovie websites, and no one seemed to have a solution. I was about to give up.

    Finally I tried something that worked...so tell me if it works for you. I duplicated the project, and shortened it down to only the minute or so where the audio went haywire. Then I exported only that minute, and voila, the glitchy audio was gone. From there, I made multiple duplicates of the original and split them roughly into quarters. (So the first movie was only the first minute, the second movie was only the second minute, etc.)

    I then took those four exported (QuickTime) movies and brought them into the Events folder. I spliced them together as a new project. (So this final project was essentially just four movie clips...already edited earlier.) When I exported this project, it came out with no problem, and is the "Wolfs Dance Branson" linked in my sig.

    I suppose it's worth a try for you. Needless to say, it was about two weeks after that when I ordered Final Cut.

    I will definitely give that a try! Thanks for the tip. Sorry to hear it happened to you too - I had a few nights at 2 a.m. where I was beyond frustrated. Darn iMovie!

    I guess that also goes to show... don't believe everything you read on the internet... I guess the 'sources' citing the fast forwarded footage were not correct after all!

    One question for you before I take a hack at this... did you export your shortened movie clips, then reassemble them, and then lay your final audio track over top (just the song, as I'm sure the clips contained all of the dialogue)? Or did the exported clips include all of the audio? I'm thinking it would be easier to avoid discontinuity if I added the audio back in at the end, but am curious to know which approach you took.

    Good thing it's the weekend... I should have some time to play.

    Again, thank you!

    If it works, there shouldn't be any need to reapply the audio track. You'll be able to find the exact frame and it will flow seamlessly. In fact, you need to be sure to leave a few seconds of overlap to trim off of each movie segment.

    (If you watch the Branson video you'll notice that I did a lot of fades--"ducking" on iMovie--just like you did. It would have been a big pain to redo that. Glad I didn't have to.)

    OK, now I have my movie segments spliced apart and exported, but when they exported they saved as .MOV files and now iMovie won't recognize them when I try to bring them into the Events folder. Any ideas?? :confused3:confused3:confused3

    I am so sorry. I wrote a response a few weeks ago, but obviously never hit enter. I don't know why that happened to you, as it did not happen when I tried.

    But first off, when you created the smaller clips, did it get rid of the extraneous audio? If it did, you should be halfway home.

    There is this article on the Apple website that I found when I googled "iMovie codecs".

    A codec is the actual language your files are created in. The .MOV is just a "container" that the file goes in. In other words, there are dozens of different kinds of .MOV files.

    It's rather confusing...welcome to the world of video.

    Ask someone on the Apple forums how to get them recognized, and they should know. (Sorry, but I don't use iMovie anymore.)

    What I would do myself is to use MPEG StreamClip. It's a free download, and can convert your files to other formats. I'd probably just convert what you got to H.264...but I still don't understand why iMovie didn't do that for you to begin with.

    Again, sorry for the delay.
