    • Rick, I was in Eureka, Utah today.  Does that count? I've also been in Eureka, Nevada a few years ago. Mitchel
    • I've seen some very nice meteorite bladed knives. We've been carving meteorites for eons. They found a gold handled meteorite blade dagger in King Tut's tomb.
    • PowerDirector has extra color richness controls such as vibrancy, exposure, white balance, shadows, sharpness, color temperature, besides the standard contrast, saturation, brightness. I've learned also, once you mess with color balance in DV-Avi in PowerDirector, you are better off to produce it into anothe clip or movie befor adding any more special and/or text effects...otherwise these don't preview smoothly or completely in a normal way.
    • The original video footage was using a Sony Handycam. Processing the files from the Sony disc got complicated. Had to open the 30 min disc in my laptop to view the contents, find the 2 video files (usually 1 long, 1 short) and copy into folders. The PowerDirector 14 comes with an editor which can import these files, restore them to original clips as you can see when still in the camcorder unfinalized. If you are wondering what that editor is called easy or magic movie editor with PowerDirector 14, after importing select "original" icon. Before getting finished click "produce" and it will go into the main editor to be finished.
    • Yes, my video software experiences were interesting...I'm now using 2 programs moving back and forth as needed in DV-AVI format, then when finished to best DVD file. Tried different quality formats but used only lowest file broadband WMV for YouTube, The reason it may look HQ or HD is because of the superior quality of the original. I had much to learn in adjusting color richness using movie software programs. What I'm using now is Roxio DVD Creator which is disc installation and PowerDirector 14 disc installation. One thing about PowerDirector 14, it comes with a 2 track audio editing program. Files saved from it in mp3 don't load into my Roxio program and music is damaged if working on it using both programs. To solve this problem, I turned off the video sound when completely finished, then added fresh audio in my Roxio program making other type files from that program. I like the extra color balancing controls PowerDirector has to offer, as well as some neat special effects. It's a long but worthwhile process I'm using, but to me the eextra quality is most important...especially for artwork.
