Post A question on Vids
As i am doing the vids at the moment I have a question for you all

How long a video do you prefer?? 2 mins? 3 or longer?

I sometimes like to put up long ones when it strings together a series of tracks or it is of a section of continious track.

But I can see the stats on the vimeo page and there are a shit load of "loads" vs "plays" a load is where the vid is loaded and not watched all the way through where the play is watched through.

I will be doing more of the edits that have comments and music added but this takes Much much more time then the cut and load I am doing now.


So the question is how long do you watch the vidieo for? 1 min 2, 5 10 all???

I prefer the quick ones as its easier but really it doesnt do the footage justice IMO. better to just put the whole track up and see the lot.

Thats 389 plays this week and 4284 loads where people have not completed the video.

That tells me something Just not sure what!

But TRA has the most complete IE plays than loads so you folks must watch to the end!

Simon I reckon if its continuous footage 3-5mins max, if its broken up with stills or changing video angles and text overlays a good one will keep me entertained for the full 10 mins

Those stats on loads are huge... are you sure a load is a full download to watch? sonce vimeo has that thing of clicking on the link, then clicking to download and play, it makes me think loads might just be the first click to find the link... and not actually download the clip to play.


did that make sence?

No that did not make sense but thats ok....

5 mins sounds like a winner to me as well.

The Loads they refer to is if someone starts to play a vid but does not completely watch the vid all the way through.

The Play is if someone actually plays the vid through. some one cound click on the vid and watch 2 seconds and then surf away and its counted as a load.

5 mins is on the border of to long.

Personally I think about 3 to 4 is enough.

3-5 mins max for just footage but if it tells a story then it keeps me entertained for a longer period of time.
You know what my vids are like....I just highlight the day with "special moments" and if there is a section that people really like then I will post up unedited footage to give them a bit more. I know overlaying text and music and cutting and mixing takes time...but they turn out better.....everyone loves a story about the day, especially when its put to pics. This is very time consuming .........great if you have the time......I don't have a great deal of time anymore so I leave the camera at home more often now. You get loads of people look and don't leave a comment and that is a bit disheartening when you put a heap of effort into it. Just a thanks for sharing...I enjoyed it ...or it was crap is better than no comment.
So have a little fun with it and tell a story.....it will be a hit!

I am still doing the edited versions and these take all day and sometimes two or three days.

Like Mt Mee the chase etc. (I like that one) with the music and captions clips etc.

But these are cut and shut and I can throw them up in 25 mins (the uploading takes ages)

I will do both but the cut and shut will still be the majority as two and three day vids are a lot of work.

I also struggle with ideas for them. music etc.

I agree comments are good let us know you have watched them and enjoyed them or not.

The TRA vimeo page is getting views from all over the world now so I am filling it up with lots of vids for people to watch.

Most of the views come off the TRA vimeo page.

Lastly with my head being so stuffed up its hard to stay focused on a project for more than 10 mins......
