HD: Flickr Friday - January 2009

Fri, 09 Jan 2009 11:59:57 -1000

Flickr Friday - January 2009 (FlipMino HD) from hawaii on Vimeo.

I took video clips with my Flip MinoHD camera, and decided to also edit it entirely using the FlipShare software that comes with it. (I use a Mac, and would usually use Final Cut Express or iMovie.) It's not something I'm likely to repeat.

The FlipShare software is very rudimentary, and best for connecting a few clips, and definitely becomes unwieldy with 30 clips like the set I used for this movie. There's a basic clip editor to set start and endpoints, but it requires to to save over or save a copy in order to use the edited clip. Also, all you've got are dissolve transitions and two title slides - one at the beginning, and one on the end. There are a handful of music loops, and I used one for this movie. But even set to be 'quieter than the video audio,' it's pretty overpowering.

The one upside to using FlipShare to something like Final Cut Express or iMovie is that FlipShare works natively with the video format, resolution, and bitrate of the Flip MinoHD's clips. So the final movie retains all of the quality of the original clips (such as it is).

Manoa Geeks from hawaii on Vimeo.

The February 2008 gathering of Manoa Geeks saw a record turnout. Hosted at Oceanit in downtown Honolulu, about 50 local technology and web gurus and fans came together to talk shop. Adobe code development, the semantic web, the Microsoft-Yahoo deal, and the Apple MacBook Air were among the many topics discussed.

Manoa Geeks is the brainchild of Aaron Dragushan of Wondermill. The first gathering took place in March 2007 at a coffee shop in Manoa (hence the name), with a handful of people. But soon, it outgrew most meeting spaces and is now hosted by local companies hoping to make connections with the talented and creative minds that attend.

President's Day 2008 was a spectacularly beautiful day of sun and blue skies, considering the usually grey weather of February. I also unexpectedly had the day off from work. So after a visit to the neighborhood pool, the family and I drove up to Haleiwa for shave ice. Aoki's (66-117 Kamehameha Hwy.) is located a stone's throw from the much more hyped Matsumoto's, but it's our preferred destination for the cool treat.
