 "Substantial track and field background"- looks like you triple jumped 42 feet and five inches? nice man,srsly, I respect jumpers, I have worked with alot of them.  One of the female athletes I worked with throughout college here at Sam Houston jumped 42 feet and 11 and a half inches her sr year so I know and respect what kind of triple jump that is.

lol - I can't tell if this is serious or not.  I'm curious where you got that number, I jumped well over that in high school... haha...
I jumped more then that in high school, really nothing to brag about my high school and college athlete days were full of unreached potential... my college jumping career was nothing special...  it wasn't until after college sports that I actually "figured things out" and started getting results to be proud about.

42 aint too bad in high school for what it's worth.

what were your numbers in h.s./college? just curious.. You specialized in triple jump? Or did you high jump also? For what college?

peace man

I communicate with Adam every now and then and actually had talked to him about this forum.

Regardless, you know me now... and from what i can tell you don't "really" have a problem with me.. I don't think, so if you have problems with me it'd be appreciated if you come to me first or at least inquire.

In conference before state I jumped a 44' and in long jump I jumped a 22'... I think those were both Sr. Year. 

(in high school I wrestled, ran track Sophmore and SR year, and played on the basketball team (except the year I wrestled)

... I jumped for a small college in Iowa called Simpson.

I honestly don't remember my college PRs...

I also played basketball there.

College and high school my hops period were above average but nothing too special.

Dunk wise I could throw down 2 handers off one foot....

My best year athletically was at age 24 - 25, at 235 pounds (about 12% BF)... I was stronger and jumping higher then I ever have in my life.  This was before I knew people were doing dunk mixes on youtube...


I'm 29 now, and training is a bit intermittent with work and traveling, but after another year we hope to be in one place for a while longer.

I follow your vids... and like watching your progression, but I'm also interested in video work.

I just got Sony Vegas Pro and snagged a new Sony a33 camera, trying to decide on that or a CAnon 60d.

I think you are an after affects fan... thinking about dipping in but I love Sony Vegas for kicking out quick vids, the production assistant with that program is a huge time saver.

Do you think AE is any good for getting vids out quick?

  someone linked a url of a (correction) 43 ft 4.5 inch triple jump of what he assumed was yours, if it wasnt then cool 44 is good too in hs.  Nah I dont have a problem with you personally, if i did I would be real clear about it and my replies to you would have been alot different.  The bottom line with me is I hate seeing young aspiring athletes get scammed by people who they trust or believe online, simply because these people make money off of their lack of training knowledge. I spend of alot of my time online trying to make sure that doesnt happen and these kids have a chance at solid, results producing, training before they get scammed or mislead into wasting their time or getting injured.  As long as you stay on the good side of the fence in that aspect I have no reason to ever have a issue or problem with you.  I still think the squatflex idea is retarded but like I said if you honestly believe in it then Im not gonna hate you for liking something that I dont.

 
Relax.

Couldn't have said it better myself Lance.  Anyone hear of Air Alert?  I mean that's where my concern comes in too...I gave up 6 months of hard training and no results from Air Alert because I was just starting out.

Also, as for the 50inchvertical site... it's some affiliates.  If these guys are spamming let me know I can report them and have them warned.  It's not good for me.  Jack W. probably gets the same thing sometimes.



Seriously, these guys spam on every damn video that has anything to do with vert or some NBA player making a highlight or whatever, i'd report them for sure if I were you.

I have reported several.

I'll have to check up on this 50inchvert guy.

I don't mind them promoting.. of course but when it damages reputation... it's no good.

Well it takes a while to take any action...

In the meantime, you can watch your bank account grow. :personal-record:

ya after effects isn't really a good program for quick editing, it's not supposed to be used the way i use it for example.. I should be using final cut pro or something more simple like that, which is meant for stringing clips together very fast.

nah.. it's more for adding effects, really crazy color schemes, compositing etc.

I see it around, but probably not as much as you have.

When I get complaints from others I tend to check up on it, or warn them, or talk to them.

I don't know this guy... trust me, if he is super annoying it NOT good for me.

Half the comments on you tube are "1st!" or "Hey I'm 5 foot and wanna dunk, right?"

I know many people think that the spammy stuff is making big $$$ but, I have shut down spammy affiliates before and the few sales they might make is not worth the damage they do.. especially when people think it is me, and don't realize it's an affiliate... which has happened.

I'm not a fan of the spammy stuff... not only is it annoying, but it's just not effective.  Same with pushy salesman, who wants to buy from a pushy salesman... no one.

From my experience most of them end up quitting, their noobs, and trying to hard without thinking of how to help others.

ADARQ -

AE looks awesome, almost bought it a while back, but ended up not... just got busy.

I love Sony Vegas... not sure what you shoot your vids with but I'm looking at a new sony DSLR they are pretty sweet, but the canons also look good.  I'm new to most of this stuff.

ya AE is crazy, it's movie industry level.. alot of the commercials you see now on tv are touched up bigtime with AE, lots of the titles are done in AE now, for movies/car commercials etc.

I shoot my videos with a "canon hv30", it's a damn good camera I love it.. It's tape based, not digital, but tape is apparently better quality than digital so, I don't know. I got it because I searched all over youtube for HD cams, and every time I found a "canon hv30 test footage" video, it was the best at the time.. A good technique to see if you will like your camera before you buy it, is to just search the cam name + "test footage" "low light test" etc..

peace man

I found this $290 dollar cam, yesterday, it's an anamoly.. it's basically used for one thing... analyzing form, and mostly for golfers.

It shoots at 600 FPS... holy slow mo... I'm thinking about grabbing that just to do soem serious form analyzation or dunk vids slow mos.

Slow mo in AE is tight though.. I messed with it in the trial... Sony Vegas slo mo is easy, but not sure it can stretch out all stinkin 600 frames.

I have the name of the cam written down if your intersted... It doesn't shoot a large size pic... probably not much bigger then standard youtube.. but the slow mo is insane.

I usually buy the stuff at Best Buy first, use it and return... I bought the sony and it has some sweet features.

I like the swivel out display so I it's easy to setup flyin solo.

Yo Jacob,

If you shoot at 600fps, the cam will still save the video at 30fps. So you don't have to "stretch it out" with vegas.
The problem with those cameras is that you need good light for the slow motion. Indoors is problematic...

V-DSLRs are a pain in the ass for quick filming (point and shoot, without preparation)! Manual focus with the desired shallow depth of field isn't easy! No image stabilization makes it even worse...

For most people i recommend Kodak Playsports or Kodak Zx1, as they are cheap, easy to handle, small and record 60fps. You can also modify them to put wideangles or fisheyes on them.

AE, Vegas, Final Cut, Premiere = all "industry level". It's just that AE is a compositing suite and not a video editor. I personally don't like Sony Vegas and would rather use Windows Movie Maker, especially on a slow computer (everything other than clean cuts and text titles sucks anyway...). For Mac, Final Cut (or Quicktime Pro or MPEG Streamclip) is the way to go.

i never tried this, but it seems to be good (and free)

I love Vegas... the production assistant makes life so easy.

Interesting... about slow mo...  I'm a noob in this stuff, by my vids are getting a bit better.

Someday we'll fight about Mac vs PC... (Was a pc.. then changed to mac... now I'm back to PC)

That Lightworks looks cool... It'd be awesome to have the "wordpress" or open source giant of video editing... with tons of awesome plugins. etc...
