Nap time

A well earned nap at the end of a long day.

This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.

Muvee review

The version I tried out (MuveeNow) was easy to use. It had a limited number of styles or themes, but most of those included were useful. Due to the limited customization, I would try to avoid using any single theme too often. I particularly liked the Urban theme. It would have been nice to be able to customize the “graffiti.” I also liked the Sepia and Moody, particularly with slower music.

I kept the test videos relatively short and the software worked well. When I tried to make a longer video (over four minutes) the software slowed considerably. This may have been due to the processor on the laptop I was using. It also started to crash consistently when trying to output the video to Quicktime or WMV.

I’ll try it out a little more, but right now it doesn’t look like a keeper.

Flickr posting problems

Still haven’t been able to successfully post photos from Flickr.

Post from Flickr

I’m trying to enable the “blog this” option on my Flickr account. The test post seemed to work, but I’m experiencing problems. Haven’t figured out if the problem is on the Flickr side or my Host.

Muvee Test – Sepia

Continuing to test MuveeNow. Used their Sepia theme. It turns out I didn’t have enough video and pictures to match the music, but since it’s just a test.
