My "Clean" AutoCross Run 09-04-05
Here's the follow up to this thread...>>>Clicky
I faired a little bit better, to say the least.
Again, it's probably better to "Save As" versus "Open".

Hey, if anyone has any video editing tips, they would be greatly appreciated.
Looks great on the TV, or the full vid recorded to the computer,
but when I compress it down to 10mb for web use, I lose a lot of detail.
Any settings I should look for that I may be missing?
I'm using the default XP program; Windows Movie Maker.

Nice clean run! I see you like taking the SVT offroad too!

Also liked the "My gf hates it when my tires make noise" in the other thread as I can relate to that comment. I whipped a u-banger once with my gf and she was freaking out when the tires were squealing. I was like WTF?

On the subject of Auto-x, is there a class that will allow you to just run whatever? I'd like to try out autocrossing, but I don't want to have to go buy stock pulleys(I never had any, got the car with UDP set) , take off all my mods, etc.

I don't really care about running against guys with more mods, etc, I'm not out to win anything, I just want to run my car the way it is set up now.

OK. I'm a noob.
Do you mean this option?
Choosing a video setting:
Digital device format (DV-AVI)

Specifies that your captured video will be saved as DV-AVI file with an .avi file name extension. This capture option is only available if you are capturing from a DV device, such as a DV camera or DV VCR. This video setting is designed to be used if you want to edit the captured video on your computer and then later save it back to a tape in a DV camera or VCR using the Save Movie Wizard. The quality of the original video is retained when you choose this setting, so the movies you record retain their original video quality when recorded back to DV tape.

However, video files saved with this setting can be quite large. For example, each minute of video saved at this setting can consume as much as 178 MB of disk space. Therefore, verify that there is enough available disk space on your hard disk to accommodate the amount of video you want to capture.
