My presentation: http://prezi.com/bbacxtcoposf/
Overall i am really happy with what i have produced as i feel that it fits the brief of an interactive journey well.
I did have a few complications when making my project, the main one was trying to upload my footage from the tape to the editing software. I first tried uploading to avid as it seemed the most simple to do however when i captured the tape there were multicoloured squares covering parts of the screen. I then tried to upload to final cut using a handy cam and fire wire cable. This again should have been quite simple however it kept telling me that there were dropped frames on the footage and therefore kept cancelling the capturing process.
In the end i used Imovie to upload the footage, it was so easy to use all i had to do was plug it in and click upload and I had no problems whatsoever. However as it could only upload in real-time i had to wait half an hour for it to finish. After that i uploaded the imported files into final cut and I was then ready to edit my footage together.
I didnt encounter any problems whilst editing and i managed to get it finished within a couple of days. The longest part was letting it render as i had sped my clips up and used split screen so it therefore had more things to render than usual.
I am not sure why my piece is 6 minutes long as it is only supposed to be around 1:30. After watching it i can see that it has added clips on at the end which are not supposed to be there. however it is quite obvious where the film is supposed to stop and it is very easy on Prezi to carry on with the presentation at any time by clicking the arrow. Also at the end of the clip there are two flashes of green screen which i have no idea how to get rid of. I think that this must have happened somehow whilst uploading.
I am happy with how my prezi has turned out. I had never used prezi before but it was really simple and an effective way of portraying my journey and im glad that i tried something new. Another thing that i have tried is using Google Sketchup. This was such an interesting piece of software and once I got used to it i found it quite simple also. I know that a lot more can be done with the software but for a first attempt i think i have done pretty well in showing what the start point of my journey looks like. I will definitely keep practicing at google sketchup and also try and do inside the house aswell as outside.
If i was to do this project again i would still use Prezi as i think that it is such a goog piece of software to portray a journey however i would probably try to incorporate more video’s and images. E.g i could split my journey up even more and maybe ave more links to different things other than my google map. Nevertheless i feel that i have given a good overview of all of the new things that i have tried this module into my prezi presentation (where possible) and i am happy with the overall outcome.
