I fooled around at Stage6 and came across this homemade video about six Pink Floyd covers. The video is called Pink Floyd - Painted Ladies
I didn't really care for the music he had chosen; I would choose differently. Pink Floyd had made a lot of music that I like, but also some that I don't. But the way this guy has made the video appear, is nothing less but awesome! You really must watch it
! The teaser itself will make you want to!:
But when the video is starting you might think that something is wrong, because the screen is all black for a long time. But this is intended. Oh, yes, it is intended. This guy has class
, and you will have to be patient and wait for the goodies. The video is 9.20 minutes and 76 MB divx. You can have cheap flash version at uTube
or buy the $6 poster at teesmeonline
, or see the image at the Turk's place as an illustration
to Martha's Song!
I wanted to save this picture to disk, but couldn't. The screen capture would deliver an all black image. Hmmm. I have so many programs but none that could handle this problem. So off I went to the Internet to look for yet another program to install. It really took some time, because the first couple of programs could not deliver what they promised, but finally I found a little something that would extract the images in an okay quality from the video. It is the Video Decompiler
from the terrible site Software Club
(to disable their sound: scroll all down and look to the left), but can also be downloaded from programurl
- and is FREE and easy to use:Pink Floyd - Painted Ladies: Wow! Pink Floyd - Painted Ladies: Wow!
It took a couple of hours to extract the images because I didn't check the settings properly before starting and so extracted every tenth image (1,600)! Certainly not a methode I will use again.
Then I had to merge three of these pictures into one, and remembered the $10 Zoner Panorama Maker
I had for free at GAOTD. And it did the job perfectly: 3 became 1 (use zoom 300) and now you can see the beautiful result (but be warned: it is 2099 x 782 pixels and 367 KB): Pink Floyd - Painted Ladies: Wow!http://stage6.divx.c...oyd---Painted-Ladies
