Custom Video Intros?
I have quite a bit of time to myself, if anyone wants a customized intro, just ask!

I just made one for myself, for my future videos. Might tweak it a little. I have to make a better "outro" where it fades to black, not just suddenly like it shows now.

CHEESE2009 10-28-2012 05:31 PM

I added:

more grain, to help blend the colors and hide jagged edges.

A shaking effect at the BOOM point.

More glare to the BOOM.

Radial blur when the text pops up, to hide the lag look.

and I fixed the outro..

THE SOUND has also been tweaked a bit, less painful now.


Can you see the difference?

CHEESE2009 10-28-2012 07:01 PM

ok ok ok, now i'm done...

Deleted the previous videos too, sorry.

Below = perfection.

That is very cool! You should have left the others up so we could see the progression of your video creations :)

Sprinkler Buddy 10-29-2012 03:31 PM

That's Cool! Very professional looking.

CHEESE2009 10-29-2012 07:23 PM


Alright so I'm testing something out here...

In the video I demonstrate how to use my website, but for my feature length film, that will be removed.

I will be adding the process of obtaining clients, the equipment that's needed to operate, where I shop to buy the equipment, and how I prepare for snow clearing, and how the work gets done. - again, the website video at the end wont be in the final edit.

<iframe width="853" height="480" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

The sound bugged out a little at some parts, I'll fix that another time. Maybe buy a microphone.



I need to know the sound quality you guys are picking up. Is the volume of my voice too low compared to other videos, or too high? What is your volume set to, to watch the video above? (e.g. 1 - 100).

Mine is set at 40, it's comfortable at that point, you?

Mike@Redneck Lawncare 10-29-2012 07:33 PM

Hey Cheese
The video ROCKS

Sprinkler Buddy 10-30-2012 09:10 AM


I believe you have real talent for video making, you may want to offer it as a service as you learn to perfect your hidden talent. It just may take you away from having to do the back breaking work. LOL

I can tell you love making them too. :-)

I'm serious! I'm sure many would pay big for a professional looking video as that to place on their site. You also have a very good voice that sets it off too.

Nice Job!

Steve 10-30-2012 12:13 PM

As far as the audio, I think you want to try to keep the levels even as possible throughout the video.

When you are editing different clips using different mics, you should see the audio levels in your editing software. The lower ones you should be able to boost up.

But beyond that you are getting really good at positioning and framing everything too.

CHEESE2009 10-30-2012 01:46 PM

Audio is very difficult to perfect.

I'm not sure how loud my voice should sound... When I watch other (professional?) videos on YouTube I can clearly understand people talking at level '10' of '100', same with music videos for a better example.

What should I be aiming for? I'm just not sure.

I don't want people to play my videos and have to alter their sound after watching a different video. Damn.
