Greetings Fright Fans, Fiends, Freaks, Perverts and Sickos. It's been a little vyle (surely according to the fact that there hasn't been a new post on this bog since 2013... and you thought I was dragging taking three years to film a season of House of Master Vyle Presents). Well, anyway, I will hopefully make these posts a regular thing again.
As to what the "All-New, All Different (Yet, Still Pretty Much the Same)" Format of House of Master Vyle is... Well... It started earlier this year when the desire to have a video editor more capable of the one I have been using struck (not for the first time, but this time it really struck hard). It was hoping for something, anything, that was better than Windows Movie Maker (one) and FREE (two). I was almost shocked to come up with not one, but three likely candidates, all three at the top of several top ten best free video editors lists. So with the kind donation of the lady vyle's computer (since I needed something that was running Windows 10... and yes, I'm a little embarrassed so I'm not going to tell you how out of date the Windows version is on my regular computer), I downloaded all three to test them out, and they were kind of a mixed bag. The first one I tried, and it's the one I have ended up sticking with for a majority of my new editing needs is HitFilm Express. This program is pretty much DA BOMB for me personally. It has finally allowed me to present the show as I had always seen it in my head, and a little more so because now I can be in the middle of editing, have an idea come to me, and have the ability to make it a reality on the spot. The second program, which caught my interest due to the fact that it had so many interesting transitions built in was OpenShot, or as it shall ever now be known as here at the House of Master Vyle, OpenShit, because I could absolutely do nothing with it. The third program, DaVinci Resolve looked like a winner, however whenever it was required to do anything visually spectacular the program would crash. Investigating the problem I learned "from the experts" that the problem wasn't the program, but that I needed a different graphic card, (a nearly $700 graphic card... so much for FREE). However, Resolve does have the ability to, a-hem, resolve one thing which HitFilm cannot, so it still has a part to play in the editing of the show.
So what can you expect? Well, for the most part it's a secret, at least until tonight when House of Master Vyle Presents: She Gods of Shark Reef airs on The Peninsula of Horror as part of our Broads and Beaches Chat Night. However, with this episode, and hopefully going forward, some familiar elements from the early Season One episodes will return, including trailers, a "musical element" and an actual preview of the next episode. Plus there are a couple of other fun goodies thrown in for everyBODY to enjoy.
Hopefully, Fiends, you can experience the All-New, All-Different (Yet, Still Pretty Much the Same) SPOOK-tacular format of House of Master Vyle Presents, tonight, and if not look for it on EEW-Tube in a day or so.
See You After Vyle,
