annyj I feel your pain! It took me forever to do the relatively simple job of stitching together the audio and video for my submission, even with help (I have an electric violin so had to use a separate output to record the sound). And then Sprend wouldn't work for me. I do hope @Fiddlerman has been able to access my videos through Google Drive and I haven't made things too difficult >_<

@PopFiddle I'm not sure if this will help but you can subscribe to the Fiddlerman Group Projects section of the forum by clicking on the "Group RSS" button next to the heading on the main forums page. Then you should get notifications of any new projects.

I can't wait to see the finished project, even if my video doesn't make it!gold_star

I'm sending my video to you now, hopefully Sprend will work for me (it's uploading now). As badly as I'd hoped to make something better, with more/any Christmas decorations and less bow screeching, I couldn't. :(  

*takes deep breath*

Why is it I can play this thing perfectly when I'm sitting on my couch, but the instant there's a track to go along with it I screw up? Anyway, hope it's not TOO too late...

Last call then. You JUST made it, and not really. :)
I had to remix the audio, bounce it, and replace the audio mix in the video. Then I removed one person who was in twice, no names. and re bounced the video.
No more videos guys!!!

Wonderful!  Thanks again for the opportunity to do this. I really have enjoyed these projects. As a stay at home mom of 3 young kids there's not a lot of time to do something purely for my own enjoyment... These projects give me a nice small goal to work towards and the end result is totally worth it.

That was so good! All of you played so well, especially the young girl in the top left (don't know her name, sorry), she is becoming such a confident player. 

 

Merry Christmas everyone :)

Thank you SO much @Fiddlerman and everyone - what a great video it turned out to be!

It was fantastic to be able to show this to my family, and I really enjoyed watching everyone.

(It was also excellent to be able to compare myself to other players and see how my posture etc. could be improved which isn't easy to assess when you're learning on your own!) ^_^

Another great Fiddlerman project! Nice job playing everyone (not including me ;) ) and excellent editing job, Pierre.

I was glad to see Katie (upper left) in the video. She's really growing up and I can tell that she's becoming the talented violinist that I knew from her early videos she would be.

Merry Christmas to all!

That's a good question, I partially had the same issue. My bowing was a lot more 'aggressive' without trying to play with a track. I think it might help us if we practiced with some play-along in addition to our normal practice :-)
