Sunday April 20th, 2008 - I took part in the Vancouver Sun Run. I knew about the race from a timelapse movie I saw on a Vancouver blog:
...and I wanted to be part of this "largest 10k race in North America" (more than 59.000 people took part this year).
It was a nice experience to actually walk the streets of a downtown area like Vancouver.
I first rendered this video like I 'normally' do - but I really like the 'Magic Bullet Look'. However, MBL is not yet available for Sony Vegas, so I asked Eugenia vimeo.com/eugenia if she knew some other solution. As always, she had an answer that was helpful.
UPDATE: MBL now comes in a version for Sony Vegas: redgiantsoftware.com/products/all/magic-bullet-looks/

is one of the first versions of MBL and even better, it's free :) So, if you have Sony Vegas and want to try it out, go ahead. Download and install in default folder - Sony Vegas will automatically find it and add it (to video effects).
One thing you have to know, though, is that rendering times are multiplied by 20 or so - this 7 minute clip took 25 hours to render on my PC (AVCHD / mpeg4 files to WMV).
I used 'Bleach bypass' and 'Bronze' for this clip. I'm aware that I might have gone over the top here, but what the heck, I'm still a newbie :)
Let me know what you think.
