Making the First Demo Video

Monday, November 19, 2007

I've been hard at work producing the first Timeline 2.0 demo video for the new website. It will show the process of creating a timeline of your recently played iTunes tracks in under a minute. At first some of the videos on the website may be ordinary screencasts, but I have a vision for making little "short films" for each demo that are more fun to watch.

Last Friday, my friend Tony J and I spent the morning running around Pioneer Square in Seattle getting video footage for the intro to the first demo. I have been building my chops on the Final Cut Pro suite and, of course, bug fixing for the big release as well.

Here are some "production stills" from our first day of shooting:

Hej fra copenhagen :-)

like everyone else - can't wait to check out T2!

a few questions if I may?

1. when will T2 be available?

2. re creating parallel timelines - will it be possible to hyperlink e.g. the images shown in your example to docs, pics etc?

3. in what form will i be able to export the finished product - i.e. Quicktime or ? (I fear I still know a few windozers!)

I have today (21/11/07) subscribed to your blog (alt.emailaddress etc etc) I'd be most grateful for your early response to the above Q's as my (law) firm is currently considering purchasing a form of compromise hybrid - however, yours looks so much cleaner, user friendly etc :-) - if hyperlink friendly etc I'll be most happy to pass the word to other colleagues as I consider such an app would be both a great asssitant and time saver (not to mention helping my poor brain!) to the profession

many thanks for your assistance!

1. T2 is still on target to be released near the end of this month. The upgrade will be free for existing customers, so you are welcome to purchase a license for the current release and upgrade when T2 is released.

2. As of right now, events can link to any content that can be displayed in your web browser (web pages). Links to local files such as Office documents is a feature that has been requested and is on my list for future implementation.

3. PDF is the best format for exporting and looks great on both Windows and Mac. T2 can also export to TIFF and PNG.

Scratch what I said about links to local files... The feature is now implemented!
