Bummer on the rust and tar. I've yet to take my ceiling down. Gonna do that prior to the raise though.

Just a walk around. Trying out new CHEAP camera. Not very impressed but I got it for less than thirty bucks to use as a dash cam.

Huh. Small world, although I was born and raised in Miami. Moved to Ocala about four years ago when I was laid o ... uh ... retired from AT&T.

Did you stabilize that video yourself or did you allow YouTube to "fix" it for you? If that is YouTube's idea of a solution, you should probably go into the Video Manager section of your channel and turn off the stability enhancements for that video.

For anyone that may be reading this, never use YouTube's enhancement tools. The stabilizing tool zooms the image so it can then move the oversized picture around while still keeping the edges out of the final frame. This screws with any titles or logos you've added and, depending on how shaky your footage is, the amount of zoom can make it nearly impossible to see what's going on.

If you use your own software (even most free tools can do this), you can pick which clips get stabilized and which ones are left alone. Also, any titles are added after the footage is stabilized, so they aren't pushed off screen by the process.

Of course, the best method is to capture stabile footage from the start. Attaching a cheap tripod to the camera and holding the whole rig loosely below the tripod head makes a world of difference in the quality of the footage, and this helps make video from expensive camcorders even better yet.

Yeah, that was me taking it out of the box it came in, clamping it to a framing hammer, and walking around the bus. I just wanted to try it out. I actually have a friend coming over to help me out with editing stuff in a couple days. I suck with that kind of stuff. ;)
