I don’t actually recommend watching this, really stupid SNL Digital short. Which I like.
Finally. And just after I paid for a Vimeo account. After watching high definition it’s difficult to watch standard video, and YouTube looks like absolute dogshit. Lately you may’ve noticed that everything got widescreen, that’s to fit the HD aspect. The quality is just way, way better. It’s actually watchable. I’ve uploaded stuff too YouTube and it’s just terrible, destroys the video. Now it’s maybe palatable and I may start again. The one catch is that YouTube doesn’t let you embed HD video in your own blog posts. The hack is to add &ap=%2526fmt%3D22 the end of the video URL (more info). As for the video, errr, it’s an SNL digital short from Lonely Island. It’s called ‘Jizz In My Pants’. Look out for the Justin Timberlake cameo. I honestly watch really stupid shit on YouTube. I spent an inappropriate portion of Sunday watching Hard Gay, for example.
In less stupid news, I saw this amazing video from Adobe labs on what video editing will look like in a few years. It’s nuts. This prototype has object recognition built in, so you can tag people and cars and move them around in the video. Like, you can literally pause a video and move a guy’s head around, or make sure everyone is facing the camera.
