Hi all.

Heres a vid created using motion capture software.
I left it filming a piece of live rock over night and it captured movement of hitch hikers.

I hated to compress this thing... as it is, at almost 60mb it's still a pale comparison to the original footage. I'm trying to figure out how to make the file size smaller and still keep some quality.
Here's the video of my tank. 100g, two hob overflows, 20g sump and 20g refugium, 250w 20K Helios bulbs, T-5 actinics, 2 Rio Hyperflow returns, 2 Seios inside, 2 closed loops. New tank is on the way! 150g w/built-in overflows etc etc etc

Made a flash video of a friends corals- not sure how well this will work though. Let me know if it won't play for you. You'll need a flash player of course. Here's the video. And Here's a link to a free flash player- scroll down towards the bottom for the free player. The video is 35mb

A little feedback for you Greg...

I'm not a fan of flash, after seeing several YouTube videos during the past year. Too much loss, action pixelated, etc.

Your video was quite the opposite! I didn't like that I had to download a new piece of software to view it, as most browsers have the ability to display flash now that many webpages have flash incoporated. You know how freeware / extra software tends to clog up PCs over time. Hopefully that won't be an issue on my machine. Regardless, great video, nice and crisp with nice macro moments.

It would have been nice to be able to make the viewing window larger, but perhaps larger means loss.

Thanks for sharing. Can't wait to see your next video.

So it doesn't play without the plug-in... I was afraid of that. Regarding quality- it's all in how much you compress it. I've experimented quite a big and so far I'm down to 15mb per minute for what I consider acceptable quality- not super high quality but very good. That's still too much bandwidth though.
Anyhow- thanks for the feedback.

To me, if the file is bigger just let people know the filesize. That way they can decide if they want to download it. I'd much rather see a clear video than a fuzzy one. Yours was well worth the download.

I know earlier in this thread, we had a person share a HD video, and it was 120 megs.

Here's a brief video from tonight. Sitting on the floor in front of the reef provides an interesting perspective. The colors are striking, plus I can enjoy the surface agitation.

Hi,

I've got a number of clips from a bubble tip cutting party a member of our local clup had at his house. It seems most of the links here are direct to the file. I'd be happy to paste each link in here if that is a rule of some kind, (and I can figgure out how to do that) but many folks have had a hard time viewing these files without a DIVX update... SO:

This is a link to a video landing page with a link to a DIVIX update that you may need to see these clips. Beyond this page you will only find one folder and all the video is of the BTA / RBTA cutting.

http://www.reefescape.net/videos.htm

Cutting a GBTA while on Rock: http://www.reefescape.net/gallery/di...?album=9&pos=0

2nd RBTA 2nd cuthttp://www.reefescape.net/gallery/di...?album=9&pos=2
End result http://www.reefescape.net/gallery/di...?album=9&pos=1

More clips available from the 1st link.

Hope you like.
