    Test Mountain biking Video..

    Hey guys.. My friends and I went mountain biking a couple times this past week or 2 and I wanted to see what kind of shots we would be taking so I can get a camera more suitable for videos. (Right now just using P&S olympus tough) So forgive the quality and the very small amount of footage. I should note these are my first-third times out on MTN bike trails. (I am more of a roadie/tourist) Just picked up a new Mtn bike 2 weeks ago and decided to give the bike a couple of test runs before any major trails are hit. Once again, sorry for the amateur video, the next one will be much better. (I promise)

    Hey everyone. I found some even better software and hit the trails again with my friend to get some more footage. This time, I made better use of tripods and trail angles. Please feel free to check it out! Let me know what you guys think. I can only improve future videos with whatever comments I can collect from present videos.

    A day out at Jacobsburg State Park.

    Thanks guys. The vids were only made like a week apart. I just used totally different software. The first one was made with software that was difficult to use and did not display song length properly. This second video I made with Power Director, which is incredibly easy to use. (Like Movie Maker but with way more stuff)

    Thanks for all the comments so far guys. I really like this software, and hopefully it will make some up and coming videos better than they would have been

    What software did you use? It looked great and had some fun "special effects." Great area, love those bridges back east. Looks like fun.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    My suggestion to improve your videos is to stop wearing sweatpants.

    Lol.. I know, I know. I am more of a road rider, and the weather has been bouncing back and forth from like 70-30 degrees, so I kept bringing pants for over my shorts, and leaving them on. Totally dig the constructive criticism though

    And yes, Cyberlink Power Director. I like this software the best so far. (Keeping in mind that Adobe is Premiere is just too far out of my league for now)

    I will be testing Avid, Sony Vegas, and Pinnacle in the next couple of weeks,
