The first Flickr Friday lunch meetup of 2009 was held on the grounds of Iolani Palace. Two dozen local photographers gathered to talkstory, trade tips, and take pictures.
I took video clips with my Flip MinoHD camera, and decided to also edit it entirely using the FlipShare software that comes with it. (I use a Mac, and would usually use Final Cut Express or iMovie.) It's not something I'm likely to repeat.
The FlipShare software is very rudimentary, and best for connecting a few clips, and definitely becomes unwieldy with 30 clips like the set I used for this movie. There's a basic clip editor to set start and endpoints, but it requires to to save over or save a copy in order to use the edited clip. Also, all you've got are dissolve transitions and two title slides - one at the beginning, and one on the end. There are a handful of music loops, and I used one for this movie. But even set to be 'quieter than the video audio,' it's pretty overpowering.
The one upside to using FlipShare to something like Final Cut Express or iMovie is that FlipShare works natively with the video format, resolution, and bitrate of the Flip MinoHD's clips. So the final movie retains all of the quality of the original clips (such as it is).
