80s Video Flashback

The world of video editing is quite overwhelming. I've been dipping my feet in and I'm realizing that the water is quite deep. I recently downloaded a trial version of Ulead's Video Studio 11 and wanted to give it a quick test. So, I threw together this little video here, which I pulled from the vaults. It is quite simple, but I think you'll enjoy it.

I also watched an online tutorial to learn how to convert my videos using the DivX codec, which is YouTube's preferred format for uploaded videos. As a result, you should notice that the video quality is slightly better. And the original 16:9 aspect ratio has been persevered, which causes the black bars across the top and bottom, but prevents Ava's face from being horizontally compressed.

P.S. This video was shot when Ava was just five weeks old.

I can't believe how she has changed. The video was great. I loved the music. You are always so perfect with the music, Larry, and it enhances the video so much.--Granny O
