Just in time for mother's day - muvee Reveal

video


I've always admired people who can put together a movie, video or picture collage together. As you can see by some of the photographs, I can't even take a clear photo with a GREAT digital camera. I guess that some people (LIKE ME) just aren't good at certain things (LIKE THAT). It's funny considering the fact that my son works in film and I used to be an actress.

When I first heard of muvee Reveal, I just had to find out if it was something that I could do without TOTALLY botching up. To test out the software, I put together a few pictures from my Sherry tasting tour in Jerez de la Frontera, Spain a five years ago. I was AMAZED at how good it looks. My next project is going to be to scan some of the old photos that I have of my parents, grandparents, great-grandparents as well as our family and make a video collage for mother's day. I'm sure that using photographs that are actually in focus will be even better....LOL.

The software was SO easy to install and just as easy to work with (even for a techno-phobe like myself).

  • muvee Reveal helps you celebrate the rich moments in your life. Add a touch of personality with your own voice, music and creativity.

  • Their technology analyzes your home videos, photos and your music and transforms it into a fun and personal production you can share.

  • By automatically detecting motion, faces, where to make cuts and apply transitions, muvee Reveal is able to focus on the user’s magical moments and sync them to the beat of the user’s chosen music.

  • The result is a professional looking home movie that really captures the emotion of the photos and video.
I was SO excited when muvee Reveal told me that they wanted to give away a copy of their software to one of Champagne Living's readers. I'm so sure that you could do a much better job than me....

My first movie would be for my wife and her mother.

Years ago, my wife and I took her mother to Universal Studios and we have many pictures of her having the time of her life. She actually rode the Incredible Hulk in the front car.

They would love it to see this time of theirs as a movie.

I would love to make a movie made of pictures of my three beautiful children when they were small. I was in a bad accident and don't get to see them very much. Maybe I wouldn't miss them so much.

My son's motocross racing and moving up toward the professional circuit this year! He is almost 17 and has been racing since he was 7 and is to the point now to where he is more than ready to move on to that part of his life and I want to record all of that and what I have doesn't cut it. :-)

It would be about my son to help us keep our humor and strength in dealing with the rough spots. He and I are both unemployed, his unemployment has run out and mine is about to. We need all the cheering up we can get! He is a wonderful son and I want to do this to show my appreciation to him.

I am a not-so-rabid genealogist & this would be great to compile all of the family pictures I have (some going back to the 1800s) to see all the similarities & differences on the way to my parents & brother. My first movie would be all about the family history.

We had a family wedding on a calm summer's eve last August at Daytona Beach. Romantic and special - definitely - but professionally photographed... not! I would love to apply the muvee Reveal software to our hodge-podge of pictures from that event and make the end-result production as memorable as the event itself. And what a lovely anniversary gift it would make! :)
