Let it Snow

Let's see if this works. If you click on the image it should open the movie in Media Player. It's a montage put to music of the pictures that I took when it was snowing at my mom's in Texas. 

I'm not quite sure how I did this. I loaded the movie to a webpage in hometown, if this doesn't work.

It's kind of funny because half the stuff I do here I'm not really sure what I'm doing. I just knock around with stuff until I make it do what I want. The computer gods look down and shake their heads and wring their hands in frustration at me, I'm sure.

This entry is dedicated to Andrea, Carol, and DiAnne, who are being blasted by a winter storm this weekend. Cheer up girls! Trish, Gigi, and I are waiting with sunshine and margaritas for your visit this coming week. Woohoo!!!

WOW!!! That was great!!  You included some really wonderful images.  What program did you use to put that all together????

Wish I could see it. I don't know why I can't. --- OH, the light bulb went off -- I don't have media player.  Great idea though.
Sunshine and Margaritas Sound like FUN!!!! Have a Great Time!!!!

That's basically how most of my stuff gets created. I read the directions, shake my head, read 'em again, then fool around until I get close to what I visualized, then spend the rest of the time trying to recreate "how" I did it. LOL

ROFL!!  I love the credits.  That pic of the cow-n-tongue...awww!  GREAT job Robbie.  I'm really impressed.  Big file.  Not *too* bad of a buffering time.  Did you mix the music too?  That was amazing.  No glitches...just flowed.  Niiiiice.  :D

This was really fun to see.   I have NO idea how you did it.  But, if I had something to make one about, I'd love to do one!  ~Sie

ROBBIE!

Oh I'm so glad I have DSL so I could see and hear that! I LOVED it! Beautiful photos. Loved the poor moo-moos. And I laughed often, too, at the sight of those poor cows (especially the tongue slurp) and at the creative ways one image was replaced with another.

GOOD job. Woo-hoo!

Snowing at a steady pace outside my window.  As a friend of my step son just said, "Its ouring snow out there!"

alphawoman1 said...

I really need to read my comments before hitting the "save"....I just told on myself (that I watch the key board and the screen as I type)........

"It's pouring snow out there!"

What a great slide show! Loved it. My Dad has a farm in NJ with cows. Today they are knee deep in snow but they have the barn to go into. You are really talented and I am envious! Nelle

ryanagi said...

Us too! We are mid-blizzard at the moment. :-)

ryanagi said...

The photo show was great!! What tool did you use to put it together?

Great entry for me today. It was fun to watch. Such a talent you are!
We have about eight inches of snow so far and another foot and a half to go by morning here in NY. : )

I have dialup and that may be why it isn't working for me.

I also send my best wishes to those in the northeast. It isn't very pleasant in the southeast either. But it's tolerable for now. Y'all have a margarita for me next week, will ya?

I just checked the forecast for LA this weekend.  It'll be 50 degrees warmer than in Ohio.  Woo hoo!!

slowmotionlife said...

Great video!!!  Great photos too - loved the one of the cow licking it's own nose.  tehehe... Ahhh, yeah, that snow was nice.  Short-lived, but nice.  :D

deabvt said...

Rats! I have dial-up.

Awwww.  That was so nice.  Starring Mom.  Poor cows...now they know how their Midwestern cousins feel in the winter.  LOL  Okay, Robbie -- you gonna share the name of the software you used to do that?  I love getting new toys.
