22 December – Something different

OK – this is a little bit different – we’ve put together a sort of “montage” I suppose from Jonathan & Holly’s wedding with all of the images.

Amber came up with the idea for this when she accidentally held down the “next image” key in our viewing & editing program. We kind of liked the super fast scroll through the shots, it gave an almost “still motion” video aspect to the wedding day.

So we thought we’d give it a whirl as a slideshow – there are still a few kinks to iron out when making these – eg somewhere in the encoding process the images have become a little compressed & squeezed – but overall I’m quite pleased with the result.

My slideshow program definitely doesn’t like working with approximately 2800 images though – I think it crashed about 10 times trying to put this together!

Anyway, without further ado – here it is. I would suggest hitting ‘Play’ and then pausing it straight away to let the video fully buffer before you watch it.

(NB) This isn’t one of the “DVD Slideshows” we offer – those are about 100 images over 8 minutes. This is 2800 images over three & a half minutes, and purely for fun!!

Post a comment & let us know what you think!

    Hey, don’t know if you realized these little coincidences but I thought it was pretty cool…when the lyrics say, “don’t hold back” it’s the vows…when they say “feeling something” it’s hugging afterward the ceremony…on “stay right there” it’s the family posing for the photo-shoot!! Very clever guys!!!

    Is this supposed to go really ridiculously fast so you can’t see anything? I would have loved to see the photo’s but can’t seem to focus on a single one… anywhere else I can see them? 🙁

    Cheers for the comments guys – pleased you like it. Don't think it'll be a regular feature just yet – until I can figure out a way to make my slideshow program stop crashing with so many images!

    CPL – That's the idea – almost like a stop-motion film rather than a series of stills! To see some of Jonathan & Holly's actual photos, scroll down the blog for their two entries, and also check their gallery on our "recent" page.
