I've been testing many different settings, but due to card speed limitations (which I have now fixed) I could only use the stable MJPEG for this movie. Another issue is the reason I have no AVCHD on this is because I put in the wrong settings and they were not working at all and I was not near a computer. Well here you go just some quick tests while relaxing by the water hope you enjoy and let me know if you have any questions.
ps. most of the numbers and setting are in the description of the video if you want to see it just go to the vimeo site.

Thanks, my friend did the title for me I'm a little rusty with titles could not get a proper indent he did it for me in a few minutes.

Very nice. Some of the shots are crooked vs the horizon, which I found distracting - was it intentional? But overall, good stuff! I really like the title shot as well - care to share how it was done?

Thanks it's the Muskoka lakes in Canada, half the time tilted horizon was on purpose half not was more of a lazy weekend video (plus using an old tripod with a broken level could buy one and glue it on just haven't gotten around to it yet). For the title just made a tiff from the video sent it into photoshop, where my friend did the work but I assume it was an indent and some shading while using the dock behind as the graphic for the texts background.
edit: talked to my friend apparently he did not go the easy filter way i would have (which would have resulted in a much worse effect), he mad three layers of the same text and offset them (maybe one layer was just for shadow), then he looked at the picture and how it would look from that angle if it were actually carved in and moved the layers till the effect was pleasing to the eye, so unfortunately not much of a quick solution as I thought and more a friend with a lot of experience doing a tricky job real fast. Hope this kind of helps if not PM me and I'll have him send you as specific of details of how he did it if you want
