Ok, I did it!  Its really simple.  I might change it up some but I really dont have a lot of play time right now...but you can check out the video at this link here:
http://youtu.be/-4h-NUqxw_4

I used Corel Video Studio Pro software to make the video.  Its a very inexpensive program and I think you can get if for the Mac too, I am not sure.  It is kind of a memory hog, if you have an older computer it may run slow.  The program is really easy to use too.

Enjoy!

Chris

So sorry that I haven't paid attention to this contest, been too busy and I appologize.
But I just watched the two videos and they are just wonderful!

I just found out that Picasa has a movie maker!  Woot!  I think Ima give that a go and see if I can't do an entry!

Since I have missed the deadline, nevermind, and the movie maker isn't all that neat.  Drag.

Cool, Giftbearer!  Sadly, this contest never took hold.  Because of the scarcity of entrants (there were only two), we never took it to conclusion.

I think not many participated because we don't (or can't) figure out how to make a "movie". lol  (at least, that's my excuse).  Now if it was a contest where we use peoples faces and make jibjab videos...that would be funny.
just a thought.  ;D

I can't do that (don't know how), and I wouldn't allow my face to be used like that anyway. Just a private personal thing.

However; I think you should try the Contest again.  Most of us have or can get Picasa for free, movies are super simple to create via a folder and drag and drop photos from your computer.  Those that have movie maker (windows) or can get their iMovie to work can certainly join in. I think perhaps maybe more notice, more promotion of the contest, (squeaky wheel gets the grease).  I would be willing to post instructions [tutorial] on the Picasa Movie on my blog for the contest etc.

This is a great idea and should not be passed up or put to pasture just yet.

By the way I think segmenting the videos for the HAB was a great idea!

My two cents, I'll go away now.

I somehow missed this one.  Is it on again?

No, but I think it should be.  This is a great idea and I was sorry to see only two entrants.  I may write IKQS, and see if she wouldn't mind re-opening the contest.

I did write a brief tutorial on Picasa 3 Movie Maker just in case people want to try it for fun, or maybe if there is enough interest to try it one more time.  Blog Tutorial is here: http://alchemistsvessel.blogspot.com/2013/04/how-to-create-movie-using-picasa-3.html
