Hi guys,

We think that the "I-DO Wedding Reporters" is such a great idea that we'd really like to help you set this all up and even get some video reporters out there.

If you're familiar with the tools required, setting up a video report, will in many ways be easier than setting up a text and photo report.

The video's can be "real video" taken with a video camera, and edited down to 3-5minutes of highlights or a video slideshow which can be produced with photos and a voiceover.

There are 2 great free tools available from Microsoft which will really help you all produce some great looking material in a very short time .. once you've played around with these, you'll see that you can produce a great result in no time at all.

For simple video editing and exporting...
Windows Movie Maker [ FREE DOWNLOAD FROM MICROSOFT ]

For creating nice animated slideshows with music or voiceover ...
Photo Story [ FREE DOWNLOAD FROM MICROSOFT ]

Export Specifications...
Your videos and slideshows should be exported using the following settings ... if you don't understand any of these, then most of the software programs out there will have a setting for outputing your file for use on the internet via DSL Cable modem etc .. this is the option to use.

Format - MPG or MOV
Size - 320 x 240 pixels
Bitrate - up to 300kbps
Frames - 25 per second

For all technical questions regarding video or software tools, use the pinned topic here in these forums ....

Good Luck to all and we look forward to seeing some video reports online soon.
