  • Borng Video Length Question

    I've just started messing around with putting visuals to some of my own music, mainly old black and white movies and 70's/80's nostalgia. (all public domain of course) and some old cine films from the family archives. I've been mixing moving images and creating kaleidoscope effects with goodish results using a basic editor 'Cyberlink Power Director 11'.

    My first project I'm working on is a huge collage I pieced together from various outtakes which runs to just under an hour so my question is having never uploaded a video in my life is: Is there any site(s) where you can upload vids that are up to an hour in length as I seem to remember youtube etc limited you to like under 5 mins but these days I see like 11 hour+ vids.

    Also if any video bods can recommend any similar software which is easy to use and is full of trippy effects that works more like a DAW with scissors etc as Power Director although not unusable by any means has some annoying ticks which I find get one my nerves and slow my workflow down and apart from a couple of the effects/filters most are kind of cheesy and unusable + unlike their earlier graphics program the effects and filters don't seem editable ie: speed and adjusting the shape of the effect (maybe there are 3rd party effects that can be downloaded). Bear in mind my software skill set is limited to working with audio as opposed to the likes of Photoshop and where I don't have the first clue although I dearly wish I did.

    Sorry for the long winded question but I am completely in the dark when it comes to this sort of thing.

    for youtube, its limited to 11 mins I think, until you have, I think, 1000 plays then you can upload any length.

    for video editing I use the basic version of sony vegas, but its only to quickly chop videos up. im sure others would have better advice

      Cheers Paul, thought youtube had something like that in place, have read a few moans on the internet over the years. Its hard to get views on youtube a lot of my music is creative commons so its all been uploaded on youtube automatically about a year ago but I'm lucky if some of it has had more than 3 views which are probably by me anyway, not that a title of a song with some music constitutes an interesting video.

      I used to mess around in Sony Acid many, many years ago so might take to Vegas. Having a lot of fun in Power Director and wish I'd realised how simple basic video editing was years ago, just hope it has some more downloadable funky effects as they are quite cheap and cheesy in all honesty although the kaleidoscope filter is trippy as [email protected]@k.

      Am sure I'll find somewhere to upload my 1 hour epic!

          Seems Youtube have changed their policy if you verify your account and I managed to upload an hour at over 1.5 gb. It seems everything is all linked to having a google account these days which is something I didn't have. Let the malicious racist, abelist, misogynistic, rape and just general hateful comments begin (not that'll get any views ), in the name of free speech of course. Why is it these people or indeed those that label themselves Libertarians (or hard right tories who don't like paying tax to me) never use their 'free speech' powers for good? Why not have a day where you just go around saying nice things to people wouldn't that be radical! I'll be able to make positive comments on others work anyway which is cool as I'd never been arsed to sign up before.

          Anyway worked on vimeo too but had to get the file size under 500mb too so quite chuffed with myself all round. There is a whole lot of man hours involved in producing what were pieces of music left over from other projects, editing them into a whole then spending 3-4 days putting them to video when I had no clue in that regard to begin with. I enjoyed it so that's all that matters I guess. I haven't done LSD in many years and it never agreed with how my brain works but I suspect you'd have a bad time watching and listening under the influence.
