How This Was Done
I filmed various folks introducing themselves at FUDcon. I got around 40 or so videos (some were do-overs). This video includes the first batch of individual videos I trimmed. I tried to use PiTiVi but the video it exports doesn’t appear to be playable. It crashes when I add an audio track and then export as well. So there’s no swanky background music on this video yet. I ended up using kino, which unfortunately meant having to use a non-Fedora repository. However, the final product was rendered to ogg.
If you have flash working the following link will be more convenient for you maybe: I Am Fedora: Video 1
Do You Want To Be in A Video?
Have a video camera or a webcam & cheese? Send me a video of yourself (look straight at the camera) saying, “My name is [your name], my IRC nick is [your IRC nick], and I am Fedora” and I’ll add your video to the pool of video clips for making more videos in the future.
Is there anyone reading this who has some proficiency with PiTiVi willing to give me some tips on getting usable output and getting imported audio tracks to work? My use-case is simple: I want to take an already ready-to-go video and just layer a background music track on top. Kino doesn’t seem to handle extra audio tracks at all.
(I really like the Burnt Toast for Breakfast album by Sum-1 and thought it would make some good background music. I was thinking of using track 9, called “Monkey Business.” The album is Creative Commons Attribution 3.0.)
