This is the final version of making Touch Me. You can click here to watch the original version. If you watch the original, you can see why I made a new version of the video. I wasn’t happy with those results. The name problem with the video was pixelation. Some times you can get away with it, if that was your intentions but it wasn’t my intentions. I couldn’t justify how bad the video looked, so I made a new one up above.
The biggest problem I had was with HYPERSPEKTIV and the 720p output. Even when I make a video with the app and load it up on YouTube and Vimeo. The video in my opinion looks on the pixelated side. They never really look that smooth. I even tried to load the video clips onto LumaFX, change it a little and save at a higher resolution/bitrate. The video clips came out worse and just look horrible. The sad part is I don’t see on my iPhone. I end up seeing it on after I load it up on YouTube and Vimeo. The other part is I should do my video edits on my iPad but that’s outdated and can’t handle high rendering glitch apps. I really want the developer to know, I make videos beyond Instagram. I don’t like the limitation of everything having to fit Instgram standards.
One of the things that did help was Fragment, placing a geometric shape in the middle of the video helped. Other things was shooting new video footage with HYERSPEKTIV and not using so many effects to change the video. I want to be able to use the app more because of the effects but the 720p outoput has be come a deal breaker for me. All I can hope for is an update for 1080p…
Now you’re wondering how do I match the video movement with the music without any key frames. Two things that happens to me. One I’ll record random video footage just like how I take photos. I’ll film it and use it for later. Second I’ll use LumaFX to adjust the speed to the music, after I’ve applied effects on the video clips. I have the track in my head of how it sounds because I have a habit of listening to one song or track multiple times. I don’t make playlists on my iPod. I just tap on a song/track and just listen to that one song/track until I feel like it times to change it.
When I decide to make a video I’ll load a couple clips on iMovie and start to change the music and video clips around. I usually have an idea of what track will fit the video. Then I mess around with LumaFX some more with video clips. I start to match the video with the sound track. This takes time but I love doing this and the results that come from doing this process. It’s a challenge. Thanks to having A.D.D. I can go back and fourth between apps without even thinking. You are constantly multitasking and going back and fourth. I know not very many people can do this for hours on end because it takes a lot of energy and focus. I’m really drained from doing this process all on an iPhone.
