    Live performance:
    Simulated performance (lip-sync):
    Vaguely surreal:

    Not bad. I like that live one.

    I'm thinking of doing something with a plot and action scenes mixed in with "live" footage. I'm not interested in doing vids with random photos or fake studio sessions.

    Something like this:

    Power Director comes with a chroma key thing built in also*

    hell you might be able to get by with a big green sheet - as long as you have good even lighting on the backdrop. Getting 4 or 5 versions in the video would be some work. But if you were creative with angles and stuff you could just do two at a time - like show the drummer and bass player - then show the singer and guitar player from a different angle - maybe just see the drum kit in the frame. Or you could get stand-ins to wear the same clothes and film them from the back or the side when you have the other clones playing.

    I think it could be pretty cool - I would have a cut away and have you banging on the door of the house or apt like your complaining about the noise, and cut away to you in another room banging a broom on the ceiling like your the downstairs neighbor. Call the cops and then you could answer the phone in a cop uniform and take the complaint...

    Maybe I am getting ahead of myself. But it would be pretty funny (or insanely narcissistic or maybe both?)

    Not sure if your the kind of person to dress up as a cop

    I kind of like this idea, if you don't use it maybe I will

    Well . . . yes . . . I know the feeling! The thing I don't like about making videos is that to try and capture what you can see in your head is enormously time consuming and expensive. I want to do stop-motion stuff and animations . . . but the effort required is huge.

    I guess it's not dissimilar to someone posting in HR saying "I've got a USB mike, how can I sound professional?"

    For software, the one thing that stood out for me with Vegas was it could do AVCHD natively, which at the time when I bought it, others couldn't do. AVCHD is the latest format that most of the popular consumer cameras are using. You really want to be sure whatever software you get can process your format natively so you don't have to run it through a converter before using it. that would suck.

    Maybe nowadays all the software suites can do AVCHD. IDk.

    I'd think that making a Greg mask would be considered a war crime under the geneva conventions.

    Oh wait... not that kind of mask!
