The Vital Role of Acoustical Door Seals

The importance of acoustical door seals is derived from a fundamental property of sound: Sound waves travel through any opening with very little loss. While the amount of air flowing through a gap increases in proportion with the size of the gap, the size of the gap in a sound barrier does not matter. A tiny hole transmits almost as much sound as a much larger gap or hole. For example, a one square inch hole in one hundred square feet of gypsum board partition can transmit as much sound as the rest of the partition. Because of this phenomenon, any unsealed gaps and clearances in door assemblies effectively cancel out the noise reduction benefits of sound rated doors. The performance loss is especially serious at medium to high frequencies, where normal conversation levels usually take place. For acoustical door seals to be effective at blocking sound, the seals around the head, jamb, and sill of the door must be complete, uninterrupted and airtight throughout the service life of the door. For uninterrupted contact, the door seals must be installed all on the same side of the door and frame. Performance also depends on good surface contact between the seals and the door edge or frame, which can usually be achieved using compression seals. However, gaps caused by imperfect door alignment are a common problem in newly installed seals and can also surface later on as buildings shift and settle and doors cycle through changes in temperature and humidity. For consistent performance over time, the most advanced acoustical door seals are designed with adjustable features to restore a sound-tight seal when clearances increase for any reason. As with the door itself, the mass of the sealing material used in acoustical gasketing is a major factor in achieving higher sound reduction ratings. Combining complimentary materials can also provide better performance. Ultimately, the quality of the acoustical gasketing or seal is the biggest factor in overcoming any installation hazards and determining how close the actual sound performance of an assembly will come to the published rating of the door. Acoustical door seal kits are available that include an automatic door bottom, which is spring operated, dropping a neoprene seal onto a threshold effectively sealing off the bottom of the door. In addition to that, door seal kits include high-grade neoprene door jambs for the vertical sides and the top of the door. Custom kits are available for oversized, undersized doors as well as double doors.

How to Record a Digital Whiteboard Video  OnlineBusinessTech.com
How to Record a Digital Whiteboard Video OnlineBusinessTech.com
In this tutorial, I am going to show you how to record a digital whiteboard video where you will record yourself writing or drawing on screen.Including digital whiteboard techniques in your video is a great way to make your videos more interesting and to engage your students. You can draw on a blank white background, include a custom branded whiteboard, or annotate images in order to demonstrate something.The are 4 things you need :• You need some sort of digital drawing device to record your writing.• You need a drawing program that you can draw in. (There are many free options that work really well.)• You need a screen capture program to record the screen while you draw.• You need a video editing program to edit the video in post production.Watch the video below, then continue reading.The first thing you need to record a digital whiteboard is some sort of digital drawing device. If you already own a computer or laptop, the best option is to buy a digital drawing tablet, like the Wacom Intuos SA drawing tablet is essentially a mouse device that is controlled by a special pen. When you tap the pen to the surface it acts as a "left-click", but it also senses the position of the pen just by hovering over the surface. So, it tends to feel really natural when you are using it.They also have pressure sensitivity built into them, so depending upon how hard you press the pen to the surface, the darker the line will show up. The pen has a couple of buttons on the side that you can assign to different actions as well. I have been using Wacom drawing tablets for 5-6 years now, and they still work great. I would recommend getting the Wacom CTL4100 Intuos ($80 Amazon).The only drawback to these types of drawing tablets is that you have to look up at your screen while you write, so you need good hand-eye coordination. Wacom also makes several drawing tablets that have screens built-in, so you can directly see what you are drawing, but if you are going to spend that kind of money, I would recommend getting a Microsoft Surface Pro instead.The Surface Pro is like the jack of all trades of devices. It's a tablet, but when you connect its keyboard, it's also a fully functional laptop. The best part is it runs Windows 10, so any program you can run on your desktop computer, you can run on this. It's not like a simplified Android or Chrome operating system, it's full-blown Windows! I love this thing.Once you have a drawing tablet, you will need to decide which drawing program you want to use.You can use nearly any program that allows you to manually draw in it. Photoshop, Paint 3D, Gimp, Powerpoint, are all programs I've used to do this. Here are my top recommendations:For Windows users, Paint 3D is a great program to use for digital whiteboards. In addition to the nice selection of drawing tools, you can also insert 3D models from the free 3D library. You can orbit them around, then annotate them in 2D.I love the simplicity of Microsoft Whiteboard. It works extremely well with my Microsoft Surface Pro. One thing that's cool is you can have multiple people connect to a whiteboard for live collaboration.SketchBook is a professional drawing program built specifically to be used with drawing tablets. It has a very easy to use interface, and it looks great. It's free! Once you have SketchBook installed and opened, you can pick a brush to use. For digital whiteboards, I like to use the felt tip pen at a size of about 5. I like the balance between heavy line weight and soft edges that combination has.You also have the ability to import images onto the canvas. This is great if you have a custom background you want to draw on, or if you want to annotate a specific image in order to demonstrate something. Just go to File > Add Image. Then, tap ESC to close the Move tooltip.This is your "whiteboard", where you will be drawing on your screen, now you will need to record your screen. It's really important to make sure your canvas is zoomed to actual size, to prevent any pixelation in your screen capture.To record your screen, you will need screen capture software. I use Camtasia, which not only includes screen capture software but also comes with a full video editing studio as well. But you can also use the built-in XBox Game Bar on Windows, or Quicktime on Mac.There are many things I like about Camtasia, including the fact that you can choose a preset aspect ratio, full screen, or lock to a window. You can also record a web cam and microphone at the same time as the screen.Another free option for screen recording is OBS. It's a pretty powerful program, but not as simple to use as Camtasia.There are a few different scenarios you might find yourself recording digital whiteboard. A common misconception is that you must record your digital whiteboard along with your audio in real time. But in most cases, you will find it easier to record them separately.One important thing to remember is that your digital whiteboard should have minimal effect on the speed and flow of your dialog! If you are dragging through a video while spelling out each word in real time while saying "Thhhhhhiiiiiisssss iiiiiiiiiiissssss........ uuuuuuhhhhh........ Tuuuuuuuuutooooorrrriiiiaaaalllll ...........Uuuuuuhhhhhbbbooooooooooooouuuuutttt........" you are missing the whole point of doing a digital whiteboard. Your digital whiteboard should enhance your videos, not inhibit them.Recording your audio and screencast at the same time might seem like the most logical and straight-forward solution for creating a whiteboard presentation. After all, that's how all of our teachers in school do it, right? They would draw on the board during the presentation of the days' lesson.Many of the videos at Khan Academy take this approach, and they do a good job of it. But, in my personal experience, I find myself shying away from this approach (especially when I first started out) for a few reasons:• Writing on screen is hard! It takes a lot of practice to get it right, and recording everything in real time can be stressful, especially if you are brand new to it.• Writing on screen takes time. Meaning, you may be well finished with your statement, but you are still scribbling away trying to catch up with your writing. This dead space can sometimes make people lose interest. This is especially true if you are going to be drawing or illustrating.• Sometimes, I just feel like I am struggling to do two things at the same time, and in the end my message suffers. I lose my train of thought, or I misspell words.If you find yourself overwhelmed while trying to record audio and draw at the same time, do not worry, there are some other methods you can use to make it less stressful.In most situations, you do not need to record your whiteboard at the same time you record the audio. The pace of speaking and writing rarely match up, and you will almost always need to transition between new canvases to illustrate new points, which requires post production editing anyways. For instance, when I recorded my tutorial on setting up a WordPress site, I recorded video and audio of me talking, while sitting at my desk. Next, I used Adobe Premiere to edit the video and cut out the junk in order to make a complete, concise tutorial. I essentially completed all the post production on this video before even thinking about digital whiteboard.At that point, I reviewed the video again and identified some areas where I thought I could use digital whiteboard in order to illustrate my point a little better. One example was when I was describing how exactly hosting works, I wanted to illustrate some servers, and how they deliver your site all around the world. So I wanted to draw some files, then some arrows pointing to a server, then have some more arrows point to the earth, then have an arrow wrap around the earth as if to show that your web site is accessible all over the world.Once I had this idea in my head, I started recording the digital whiteboard. I did not worry about timing, or pace. I just drew what I wanted to draw. If I messed up, I hit undo. All of this is going to be edited in the video editing software (Cut out the mistakes, increase the speed to match the audio), so there's no need to stress out about getting it right the first time, or drawing really fast to get it done at the right pace. Take your time, enjoy it, and have fun!A hybrid approach to recording whiteboard is to record your audio and your whiteboard simultaneously, but leaving silence as needed in order to give yourself enough time to finish drawing. Then, in your video editing software, you can take the silent part of the clip (where you are finishing up a drawing), and increase the playback speed to reduce the amount of dead space in the final video.When you are recording audio and whiteboard at the same time, make sure you give yourself enough time between phrases to finish writing. Do not feel like you need to talk while you are writing just to fill in dead space. Just finish writing/drawing, and you can speed up that clip of video in post production.The biggest challenge with this approach is keeping your train of thought in between the silences, and maintaining the same vocal intensity and rhythm throughout.• Do not feel like you have to show the animation of every single word or illustration you make. It's ok to cut to the completed version of the drawing at times when you need to save time.• You can create transparent overlays by using a chroma key effect inside your video editing program, in order to overlay your writing on top of videos.• Here's a good example of the digital whiteboard in use• Here's another example. Not digital, but a really good example of how drawing captures attention,• Using a slideshow program like Powerpoint allows you to attach your annotations to each slide, so when you go to a new slide, the annotations will disappear.• Camtasia has a built-in feature called ScreenDraw, which lets you draw on the screen, over the top of anything that's on your screen.• In most video production software, you have the ability to export a single frame as an image. Bring that image into your drawing program, and line up your screen capture window with it and draw on top of it. Import it back into your video and place the clip right where you exported the frame. It will create a "freeze frame" effect and show you drawing on top of it.• Do not be afraid of using regular text on the screen. You do not have to draw everything by hand. (Especially if you have poor handwriting like me)• In Camtasia, you can disable the tooltip, so you do not see the mouse hovering on the screen.• Do not leave your pen tablet stylus sitting on top of the tablet, even though it's not touching the tablet, it will still control the mouse position, making it impossible to use your regular mouse. If you notice your cursor not moving, that's probably the reason.hey thanks for ur time. I really need 2 find a free video/sound converter i need it ASAP?google "Any Video Converter" does sound too

One worked fine through HDMI, but the other one, which is connected via USB to a HDMI adapter, did not. How can I make it work?The HDMI port is connected directly to the the PC's graphics interface.USB is a very generic port. In the PC, it may have no direct connection to its video output. In other words, there is no way (probably, without a special driver) to tell the PC to grab the video output and send it over the USB port. Arguably, the USB port may not even be fast enough to send real-time audio and video to the USB port to be sent over HDMI.If you want to connect two monitors via HDMI you will need to get an HDMI splitter . Alternatively, get a docking station. Most allow dual monitor outputs.I connected 2 TVs to a Lenovo computer.

With over 12 million customers, DIRECT TV is the nation's largest provider of satellite TV service. Dish Network is close behind! (My personal favorite) Available in all 50 states (Hawaii residents have a smaller selection of channels, and customers in Alaska may need a larger satellite dish), DIRECT TV claims to offer the "most channels for your dollar." For customers with high definition TV sets, DIRECT TV offers a high definition package that features channels of high definition programming (ESPN, Discovery, HDNet, and HDNetMovies) as well as select high definition programming on HBO and Showtime. Customers who choose to install a standard TV antenna in addition to their dish can also enjoy high definition local programming where available. Receiving high definition satellite signals requires an HD-compatible dish and receiver, which are available from DIRECT TV at an extra cost. Total Available Channels (excluding digital music channels): 150, depending on plan Channel Selection Want channels? Satellite TV offers more options than you will know what to do with! From favorites like CNN, HBO, and ESPN, to more obscure options like the Speed Channel, Discovery Wings, and the Love Stories network, there is a satellite TV channel to suit every imaginable interest.

Crystal-clear digital images and audio! Satellite TV delivers 100% digital audio and video. Despite the incredible distance that the signal must travel before it reaches your television, the end result is still crystal clear and equal to any digital cable picture! As long as you have an unobstructed view of the southern sky, the only threat to the quality of your signal is very heavy rain or snow, which can occasionally interfere with reception. If you live in an area with frequent severe weather, you can always get a slightly larger dish to offset the interference.5.

Graffiti Be Gone: How to Remove a Vandals Art From Your Garage Door | Hicklin Door Services
After watching hours of renovation shows on television, you've taken the term "houseproud" to a whole new level. You've ripped out the kitchen and updated the master bathroom. You even hired professional landscapers. The curb appeal is off the charts. But then a vandal hits your garage door with a can of spray paint! What to do? The Property Brothers have not covered this topic yet. Graffiti may have started as an urban blight, but it has spread to the suburbs and beyond. Nobody's home is safe.When faced with this unfortunate situation, you could hire a company that specializes in this type of cleaning. But ask yourself, "What would Mike Holmes do?" He would take it as a challenge to remove the graffiti himself-or at least try. There are several cleaning products to tackle the problem. Here, we channel the spirit of HGTV and provide helpful hints for erasing the damage.What are you waiting for? Get outside and start this job as soon as possible, before the paint dries and takes hold. Try to remove graffiti within the first 24 to 48 hours. You wo not regret getting a head start the same day.It's all about the (spray) paintA solvent is a chemical substance that dissolves something else-in this case, spray paint. There are three types of solvents:• Hydrocarbon solvents such as paraffin, with lower solvency power but they effectively separate from water.• Halogenated solvents, which typically belong to the family of chlorinated chemicals.Okay, that's the chemistry. Here what you need to know. Strong solvents will take off the paint under the graffiti, as well as the tag, if you are not careful. You can not expect a solvent to distinguish between the graffiti and your undercoat of exterior paint on the garage door. Knowing that, proceed with caution, do not over‑saturate the stain with solvent, scrub lightly and be sure to work in small areas. (Note that wooden doors are particularly vulnerable to solvents).Try mineral spirits, also called white spirits. They are a type of petroleum distillate used to thin paint. Note that they are cheap and easy to use, but does not always remove more stubborn graffiti. White spirits will only work on easy‑to‑remove, fresh paint that can be removed with a pressure washer anyway.Naphtha, also a petroleum solvent, is stronger than white spirits. Naphtha will dissolve dry, hardened paint and crayons.If your vandal used markers, isopropyl alcohol is a good option. It also breaks down shoe polish and ink.Lacquer thinner, or acetone, is one of the most effective solvents against graffiti. Acetone softens and dissolves most types of paint-even spray paint. However, acetone can soften certain types of plastic or vinyl, so it's unsuitable on a plastic garage door.If you shy away from solvents, there's an option. "Green" activists and grandmothers swear by a mixture of white vinegar and lemon juice, or white vinegar and baking soda, is an effective cleaning agent. Admittedly, there is less of a risk that you will damage your door's original paint. It's worth a try.Your door's original surface is a big consideration. If your garage door was manufactured with a baked‑on paint, typically polyester based, it's more resistant. If your garage door was repainted in a paint shop by a professional painting company, find out what type of paint they used to do it and how it was applied.Sometimes, it's best to repaintIs your garage door getting old? Think long and hard about spending time and money trying to scrub graffiti off a weathered door. Would not a cosmetic makeover contribute greatly to the overall appearance of your home? If so, just repaint your garage door and do not bother hunting around town for a specialized product to remove graffiti.For help picking the paint color for the makeover, major paint manufacturers have an online visualize tool for exterior paint on their websites, so you can experiment with color combinations and find the perfect look to complement your front door. Designers know that oversized garage doors look best in lighter shades, while smaller doors can be painted a deeper shade. Bold accent colors-red, cranberry, navy-look best on front doors.Before you pick up the paint brush, start by thoroughly cleaning the door's surface and bottom edge. Wash off all surface dirt, grease and spider webs before applying a coat of good-quality primer. If your door is from Garaga or is a door with a similar surface, then refer to our website for the instructions you will need to repaint it.Perhaps your home insurance policy covers damage by vandals! Contact your insurance company to confirm and ask about the deductible. If the deductible is high, it may not be worth submitting a claim.Is it time for an upgrade?Ask yourself an honest question. Was your garage door ready to be replaced anyway? This could be the prodding you were waiting for to make a change. If you live near Des Moines contact us now or call 515-276-3700. We provide no‑obligation quotations by email.Another option is to come and meet us at our showroom. Use our Design Centre to pick out the style of door and look at our image gallery for instant inspiration.What are some ways to increase space for cats in a small house?Use vertical space. Keep breakables out of spaces the cat has access to, behind door or behind glass or at great heights (some cats can jump to the top of a fridge, so that's a minimum). You can train cats that there are surfaces they are not allowed on but (a) you want to do that without the breakables present, (b) there is no guarantee they will behave when not observed, and (c) if the surface is at all interestingly placed, they are almost guaranteed to try again at some point in the future, to check whether the role is still in force. Give the cat other things to climb -- a cat tree (good homebrew designs can be found on the web), shelves that they are allowed on, the top of a cabinet with a reasonable route to it either by climbing or jumping or both. .. Things to crawl under/through are another kind if space.Give them toys to play with in the available space. Remember, to a cat, a room is much bigger than for us. (Reverse-engineering the 8' cat tree I inherited, I figure it's one sheet of plywood, one 8' 2x4 (or a bit more?), one 8' 4x4, four heavy angle brackets, two carpet runners, and screws and glue to assemble it. Not very expensive for something that lets the cats meet me at eye level and/or climb almost to the ceiling.)
What Phenomenon Causes "lunar Waves? [closed]
What Phenomenon Causes "lunar Waves? [closed]
Video astronomy requires much more equipment than traditional eyepiece viewing. It helps to understand what is going on between the camera lens and the video screen.Most important is the conversion of the cameras analog signal to the computer digital format. This is usually done with a frame grabber and its associated drivers. The cameras typically have 700 ish lines of resolution which are usually translated into 640 by 480 digital signal. The camera analog signal is 60 cycle interlaced. The computer display frequency is whatever the PC is set to. I will let the Math people tell us how the drivers fit all those numbers together and make a nice picture. I think the answer is PI or at least within a decimal place or two. The numbers get rounded and every once in a while the computer screen hiccups. National Enquirer sort of news. The frame grabbers come in a wide range of cost and reliability. There's no rhyme or reason to their reliability. They depend on the computers operating system which is not identical on every computer. The frame grabber and driver will work well on one PC but not another similarly equipped PC. Typically the astro video cameras two output connectors, a coax and an S-Video. The person making the video could have proven the "Waves" were and artifact of the PC by simply connecting one of the cameras outputs to an analog video screen, a television with a composite input for example and the other output to the computers frame grabber. Provided the camera and analog video are functioning properly he could have shown us a rock steady image on the analog screen and the waves on the Computer screen. With a little skill he could have shown us an alien or two surfing on the waves. Smoke, mirrors and snake oil. Suckers are said to be born at the rate of one per minute. I have a feeling the con artist birth rate is up there as well.It is a bit of a shame, Video or near live viewing as many of us call it, is gaining in popularity. Having someone use what is not unusual for a Video astronomer to see just for a bit of sensationalism serves no useful purpose. Another point to edit in. The uTube is a video of a video. The image we see is taken by a second video cameras pointed at a video image being displayed on a computer screen. Crunch the computer screen frequency and resolution with the frequency and resolution of the second camera. You end up with images of airplane propellers that appear to stand still or move very slowly. I wonder how much adverting revenue that sort of video would bring into uTube1. How to shrink FLA file (from 20mb to around 4mb)?First off the size of the FLA is usually not important. It's the size of the swf. Do you have images in there? can you resize the images smaller? How about saving them as optimized with photoshop? If you have media such as audio, video, or graphics - consider loading them externally using actionscript. Finally there are swf optimizers out there which can cut filesizes down considerably.2. VIdeo Converters for UbuntuParts of this answer comes from: Software for converting mp4 files from 720p to 480pMobile Media Converter by Miksoft can be an easier way to do transcoding tasks.In the above screenshot we can see a queue of videos (one in this example) to be processed with the same customised properties which includes transcoding for one or more of the next:For VideoOf course you will be in need to add (on your own) the proper codecs for which you wish transcoding your video files so that they will become available in the "Video Codec" Drop Down.Please have a look at this answer in which I explain something related. How can I maximum compress video files? Good luck!3. I have av cables. How do I cut the ends off, rig them in some way and make them wireless if possible?AV cables are just that, physical cables to transmit audio and video from one device to another. The voltages used are 1-2 volts. Although there may be electromagnetic fields around the conductors, they are cancelled by being opposite in direction on the inner and outer (sheath) conductors. Plus, the outer sheath is generally earthed. So if you are expecting to be able to make a wireless connection, you really need to add an AV RF transmitter and receiver. They will produce a wireless signal modulated with the AV information, and recover the information at the receive end.
Fall Is a High-risk Time of Year for Road Collisions
Fall Is a High-risk Time of Year for Road Collisions
He never saw it coming."It literally ran into the side of the car and I just saw its head bounce off the hood," Robert Armstrong recalls of his run-in with a deer in the fall of 2014.It was late at night on a two-lane highway, driving home to Colborne, Ont. from a visit to Listowel, northwest of Kitchener.Fortunately, Armstrong was unhurt although the passenger side of his 2001 Saturn coupe was smashed. He believes the deer perished after it ran off and disappeared in the darkness.Ontario motorists are heading into one of the riskiest times of the year, as four-legged mating season kicks into high gear and darkness comes an hour earlier with the end of daylight saving time on Sunday, Nov. 4. November is traditionally the riskiest month for automobile collisions with deer on roads and highways.In 2015, vehicles collided with wild animals 11,540 times, according to the Ministry of Transportation's Ontario Road Safety Annual Report . (The species of animals aren't identified.) Of those reported collisions, four were fatal and 382 resulted in injuries.In its 2017 report, the Traffic Injury Research Foundation pegged average vehicle-damage costs at $2,800. However, CARSTAR Auto Body Repair Experts, which has 500 locations in the U.S. and Canada, reports that the average cost of repairs from automobile collisions with large animals is between $2,500 and $4,999. Five per cent of repairs are between $5,000 and $10,000, store owners said.Of course, the larger the animal, the heftier the repair bill, unless the vehicle is unsalvageable."Deer can do a lot of damage, that's for sure," says Armstrong, who was able to make the three-hour drive home with a bashed bumper, fender, door panel and hood.He did his own repairs for about $700, using scrap yard parts that were repainted canary yellow to match his aging Saturn. He says that because of the extent of the damage and the car's age, his insurance company would have written it off.Then, two months ago, he narrowly missed another crash when a deer again dashed in front of him.All collisions resulting in more than $2,000 in damage should be reported to a collision centre.But it's driver know-how, not luck, that determines insurance coverage of repair costs from a collision, according to industry expert Anne Marie Thomas.Repairs are covered under the collision or comprehensive sections of an auto insurance policy. But whether the animal was moving or stationary on impact is key, says Thomas, spokesperson for InsuranceHotline.com , a rates comparison website.If the deer was on the move and couldn't be safely avoided, a claim is paid out under the comprehensive section, she explains.But if it was lying in the road - having already been hit - that's considered an at-fault accident and is covered by the collision section. The insurance company takes the position that the driver should have been able to brake safely and avoid the animal, says Thomas, a 30-year veteran of the insurance business.If you swerve and hit an object or another car instead, that's also bad news."The rule of thumb is: if the collision is deemed to be your fault, you'll likely see an increase in your rates," Thomas says. Depending on several factors, that could be as much as 50 per cent for a driver with a clean record who hasn't purchased forgiveness coverage, which protects against a rate increase following the first at-fault accident, she says.In general, Thomas suggests that drivers trying to save money on their policy could save 10 per cent on collision or comprehensive premiums by opting for a higher deductible of $1,000, for example."This sounds so horrible," she adds, but from a human safety aspect, it's better to strike a moving mammal."You feel bad if you hit an animal, but you'd feel worse if you swerved and hit a family in another car driving innocently down the road." Sgt. Kerry Schmidt, with the Ontario Provincial Police, echoes that advice: "If you swerve, there's a good chance you'll lose control." Instead, use the brakes to come to a controlled stop, he recommends.Dusk-to-darkness driving tips Here are more deer-and-driving tips:

Is it illegal to video tape the exchange of children for visitations?In every state, if the camera is in view, you can record anyone and everyone you want, with or without their permission. When the children are in his custody, he can record them at any time. In any public place (as in a Harley Davidson shop), any area open to the public can be recorded, whether the people know it or not. I can come to your house and video tape you leaving for work every day, stopping at the coffee shop, scratching yourass, etc, whether you know it or not. The rule by which video or audio taping becomes illegal is 'expectation of privacy'. You expect privacy in a bathroom or dressing room. You expect it in your own home or your car. Just about everywhere else, you have no expectation of privacy. You have to conduct yourself as though you are being recorded every minute that you are away from home or in the bathroom. As for recording private conversations, it depends on the state that you live in. In Tenn, for ex, as long as one party to a conversation knows that they are being recorded, it is legal. In NY, both parties have to know. As long as the camera is in the open, I can tape the exchange for my own personal use. So can you.5. how do i convert real life video to a cartoon video with no download?Well, there are no freeware editing programs that can do that. Windows movie maker has a very limited effects window, but it's free. An editing program like Premiere Pro or After Effects (Adobe) can change real to cartoon, but these programs cost 900$. There is a way to get these programs free however, through torrent files. This takes a couple days however, and it's a somewhat complicated process to understand at first. You COULD try to draw it by hand, frame by frame, but (depending on how long the footage is) this can take up to a year. Sorry, and good luck!6. Help with name of this video game?I believe you are referring to one of the games from the Final Fight series; it's a side scroller melee fighter, but I do not know about the shotgun... I played it on the Sega Genesis back in the 90s. The dark-haired fighter in red is Guy, the blond guy in a white shirt is Cody and the larger topless fighter with the mustache is Haggar. The girl is Poison/Roxy who was originally a female villain character, but then Capcom decided to change her to be a transexual in the later games since they did not think it was appropriate for their male hero protagonists to be beating up females lol! Anyway, this is my best guess. Check the link below and see if that's the game7. name of catchy music video?Bad Romance by Lady Gaga? I can not say its catchy though8. Is this the right video card?the AMD Radeon HD 7750 is one of the most advanced GPUs on the market right now. but really you dont need it. so you have a choice here. you can either get the Radeon HD 7750 (the more expensive option) and that will last you a long time. or you can step down one generation (like i did) and buy sometihng like a Radeon HD 6970 (it can still run 99% of games at max settings, and is cheaper) although if you go for a cheaper option the GPU will last you less time than the more expensive option if you want to keep gaming on max settings. in about 1-2 years the HD 6970 will start showing its age and you might have to lower some setting in games to get a decent frame rate. this can ofcource be sloved by changing the GPU. or by utilizing crossfire and buy another HD 6970 to double the power. which will last you a few more years. the more expensive option will last you about 5-7 years before you have to do something similar.
Do Canon and Nikon Cameras Include Video?
Do Canon and Nikon Cameras Include Video?
They may have but great still cameras do not make good video cameras. The same is true the other way around. Their requirements are entirely different. The video feature in a digital camera is very limited and wanting in many aspects. If you like to do more video, get a digital video camera. The dSLR is simply not built for video1. Help with video editing!?Pro Show Gold2. what is the worst type of camera for beginners?Stay away from Kodak and Vivitar. Stay away from very small P&Ss because of their very tiny sensor. Avoid cameras with only automatic and "scene" modes....... look for manual controls. Teeny tiny little onboard flash is bad..... get a camera with a hot shoe for a real flash. Oh and if video is your thing, get a camcorder..... still cameras will never be as good.3. Is there a way to set up a video camera to stream live video to a computer?It would help to know what camcorder and what software you have for video editing4. Video encoding: How much does the video file size increase with fps?I will try the theoretic approach. I would love to see some real-world examples that would prove or disprove my theory. Good question! If you have any comments or find some flaws, feel free to comment.For any current encoder (let's take MPEG-4/AVC/h. 264 as an example) frame rate does not matter as much as you think. Let's just assume there is no rate control and every picture is encoded with the same base QP (quantization parameter).You are right with the following: The motion difference (as defined in ITU-R P. 910, good read) between two frames of an 48 fps video will be lower than for the same video in 24 fps. This is due to the fact that the frames wo not differ as much from each other. Note that the whole temporal motion does not increase. In the end, an object moves from point A to B, so its motion vector will be the same length no matter how many frames per second.As the encoder looks for the difference between two (or more) frames and only encodes the residual values, that means it will have to code less residual per picture. In average, this will be half of the residual. So you are right with that. (We must not forget that only half of the residual does not mean half of the data needed to store it. It depends on the algorithmic coding implemented.)Then again, you have twice as many pictures per second, which means that - in average - the encoded information doubles again. To summarize, nothing much changes on that side. The encoder will do its best job to encode all the motion in the video, which in sum is the same (just in smaller steps, if you know what I mean). The only overhead we have to add is the overhead from small residuals that can not be arithmetically coded in an efficient way. The above only applies to B- or P-pictures, which depend on others. However, we have to insert an intra-coded picture every once in a while which is not dependent on any other picture. If this rate of intra-coded pictures does not increase, we could assume a linear growth in file size, maybe a bit more. However if you decrease the distance of intra-coded pictures in order to compensate for possible packet-loss or bitstream errors, you will carry more overhead and therefore the increase is more than linear, not much, but probably noticeable5. Antivirus software for video games?You have to have a firewall on to protect your computer from port-scanning but while you are gaming you should not need the anti-virus enabled in real-time nor the anti-spyware. You absolutely need to re-enable both of them (unless you have an all-in-one like AVG Internet Security or Norton or McAfee) when you visit other websites; there are jerks putting malicious software on so many websites, and then posting links to them - even here in Yahoo answers (they get deleted when they are found out). And there are those malware people corrupting legitimate websites. You could do this - have a computer dedicated to gaming with no anti-malware software other than a firewall, and have a separate computer with all anti-malware enabled for other web-surfing.
Colin Kaepernick Bought a New York Condo Under the Radar
Colin Kaepernick Bought a New York Condo Under the Radar
Colin Kaepernick putting his San Jose home on the market was big news last week amid the uncertainty surrounding his future with the 49ers. Kaepernick through a team spokesman said he was selling the home as "an investment decision."A report from NFL Media surfaced Sunday morning indicating Kaepernick was likely to test the free agent market after the season, meaning this could be the end of Kaepernick's tenure with the team that drafted him in 2011.A related nugget in the saga: Kaepernick purchased a $3.21-million condo in New York City over the summer, according to the Los Angeles Times.It could be that Kaepernick, who's banked some $43 million from the 49ers over his six-year career, just wanted a place to call home in one of the world's most desirable cities.It sounds like a nice place, per the Times:The 1,733-square-foot unit has vaulted ceilings, solid wood doors and wide-plank wood flooring. Oversized windows take in views from three exposures.A contemporary kitchen, a living room, an office, two bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms are among the living areas. The master bathroom sports custom teak vanities and a whirlpool tub.Kaepernick played like he was getting more and more comfortable in Chip Kelly's offense before Sunday's game. But he was benched for Blaine Gabbert early in the fourth quarter after completing just one pass against the lowly Chicago Bears in the driving snow at Soldier Field. The 49ers had their worst passing performance in 53 years in the embarrassing 26-6 defeat.Kelly after the game wouldn't commit to a starting quarterback for the next game against the New York Jets, who, coincidentally, should be in the quarterback market next spring.Kaepernick has thrown for 1,444 yards in seven starts since taking over for Gabbert in Week 6. Kaepernick completed 54.5 percent of his passes with 10 touchdown passes and three interceptions for a passer rating of 85.5, which ranks 24th among 32 qualified quarterbacks.Sign up for the Niners Wire email newsletter to get our top stories in your inbox every morning Please re-enter your email address.You'll now receive the top Niners Wire stories each day directly in your inbox.
A Girl's Best Friend Isn't for Sale (well, OK)
A Girl's Best Friend Isn't for Sale (well, OK)
Kirsty is taking a long time brushing her hair, striking an indifferent pose to her friend's nagging, enjoying the privacy of staring into a mirror. Kirsty is sitting sideways, with her legs crossed, on the sandy steps at Federation Square; the mirror is in the lid of her make-up box, which she has set on top of the video camera's silver case.Her friend Laura stands a few steps down, holding the camera aloft in her palm; in the way her ancient relatives once hefted spears. For a while Laura's been saying things like "We have a lot to do" and "We're going run out of time" and "Aw, come on". Laura may as well be banging on a locked bathroom door.Suddenly, Kirsty moans in despair. Her hair is long and straight, very shiny, but she's brushed it so much she's mucked up the part on the side - and needs to start from scratch."Kirsty!" It comes out of Laura like a curse, then she flounces and looks at me.In between outbursts, she has been telling me their story. Kirsty and Laura - a year out of school and "best friends for years" - are making a video tour of the city. Laura plans to send copies to her pen pal in France and her grandparents in Brisbane. Kirsty plans to send copies to television producers; she "wants to be an actress or read the news or just be in commercials".Laura compiled the list of places they need to visit on the tour, wrote the script and will be doing the camera work. Kirsty is the on-screen personality but she doesn't like the script - a series of short and chatty descriptions of places such as Federation Square, the Town Hall, Parliament House, the Old Melbourne Gaol and so on."It's boring," she says, checking her lips and eyes in the mirror and suddenly smiling and ready to get on with it. "Well, come on." At this point Laura brings the conversation back to its original topic. "I suppose if you can buy a best friend on the internet, you can sell one too. How much do you think I'd get for Kirsty?" Now we are getting to the heart of the matter. I'd been wandering around, looking for a couple of "best friends". I wanted to know what a best friend was worth, in cash terms.A young fellow named Stuart Donald is probably sitting at his computer in Scotland at this moment, watching the eBay shopping website, where he is selling himself as best friend for a month to the highest bidder.Donald doesn't plan to hang out with his new best friend - no fireside ales and jolly tales. Instead, he's offering a modest package of emails, letters and text messages. Donald hasn't set a reserve price."It's just a stunt," says Laura."It's creepy," says Kirsty."I think I'll definitely sell you then," says Laura.So how much does Laura want for Kirsty?"I think I'd settle for a bottle of tequila." "Hey," says Kirsty, brightening, "that's what we could do. It wouldn't be so bad if it was just emails. You could have like a dozen (best friends) at the same time and just send them copies of the same emails." Suddenly Kirsty and Laura are riotous best friends again, making plans to sell each other off for shoes, clothes and make-up. It's all very giddy until Laura worries that Kirsty is serious about the idea."It's fun to think about," says Laura, sobering. "But you'd just be preying on all the sad cases." Kirsty makes a sad face to keep in step with her friend. "Yeah," she says. "There's a lot of them out there. But don't you think they'd get something out of it?"
Hi I Have a T5i Canon Camera How Can I Monitor the Volume with Headphones It Has No Headphone Input
Hi I Have a T5i Canon Camera How Can I Monitor the Volume with Headphones It Has No Headphone Input
You can not monitor the volume via the camera because it does not have an external headphone jack. Had you purchased a camcorder, which is designed for video as opposed to buying a digital still camera that just so happens to have a video feature, you would be far better off. Your options are: buy an external audio recorder with a headphone jack. Or, buy a camcorder that will outperform your T5i with ease in all aspects of the video-making process.1. How do I justify a civil war being as brutal as possible?Wars with yesterday's mentality and tomorrow's technology, tend to be very brutal. Wars that happen during a major advancement in technology tend to be brutal on their own, WW1 were not particularly brutal (in terms of decisions made) compared to the wars that came before, but the brutality feels unprecedented due to scale and efficiency new technology enabled. Technology also enabling non-combatants to see the brutality in a very visceral manner unlike the detached manner it would have reached a wider audience before, photographs over written accounts, video over pictures, ect. Technology can even change how the populace feels about violence in general, increased availability of printed word for instance is believed to have made people more empathetic and less accepting of violence by inadvertently training people to see things from someone else's perspective. Additionally wars in which the populace of both sides are committed tend to be very brutal , the crusades are a great example, wars in which both side are extremely committed leads to disorganized fighting on many levels. this mixture of poor troops and trained troops makes slaughter and confusion more easy. (the last batch were pushover why are these ones giving us so much trouble, well because the last attack was disorganized rabble and this time it is seasoned troops. Nobody can really gauge the other sides strength well so total clusterfuffles become rampant. A civil war started by the populace (as opposed to a coup) will tend towards this. To add to this if both sides feel completely justified you get less compromise, more stand offs and on an individual level more justification of atrocities. religion can be a good example of this but any ideology will fit the bill just as well, no horror compares to those done by men of conviction doing the right thing. In the american civil war and WW1 it was freedom vs freedom, and was brutal because of it. The longer a war stretches on the worse this will get, and propaganda can easily make it worse, there is a reason the christmas truce was an early in the war event2. Wedding videography as a job?Wedding Videography although hard, is rewarding and fun! If you want to take this as a career path, learn learn, and most of all learn. The biggest part is separating yourself from the pack. Pro's are always learning and putting new techniques into their art from. We do Photography and Video and are able to capture the day from both perspectives. We also are always watching others to be inspired to take our art to the next level (and you should too!) Focus on Editing, (Using Premier or Final Cut Pro). Then look at getting the best equipment, both vid and audio. You cannot fix bad audio and correcting poorly lit video/shaky video is next to impossible without it look like an rookie shot it. My advice, find some equipment to rent or borrow. Offer it as a freebie to some of your dads clients. (if its free and you fail then no harm no foul). Once you get really good, then start offering it as a service to compliment your dads photography. Use 2 cameras. One stationary and one to get creative close and ups and angles. With audio, I always use a boom mic with the moving camera, wireless lapels for the stationary camera, and equip the groom with a lapel MP3 Recorder in the event you have audio issues with the wireless system (which happens time to time)3. Is it vandalism when your neighboru2019s visitors drive all the way in your small grass garden and leave tire marks?Get rocks and put them around the garden. About 2 or 3 times the size of a soccer ball. They don't have to be too close to each other. Unless you have video, not much you can do about vandalism. Is it vandalism when your neighbor's visitors drive all the way in your small grass garden and leave tire marks?
