I read a bit about downloading stuff from internet (basically mp4 stuff from youtube ) and got VLC thinking it was pretty good program and one thing it could do was help me download stuff from youtube. I didn't try youtube download yet. I just tried vimeo and it didn't work. I could get the vimeo stuff into my cache ( win 10) as an mp4 but couldn't get the option to 'save as', so I failed in my attempt.
It's a pro vimeo account I guess, so maybe there is something going on I have no clue about ??
aha... OK, thanks so much... I made a suggestion to the author about turning a reel he has into a faster paced montage ( almost like a trailer ) and after offering that decided I better see if I could get the material via internet instead of him sending stuff in mail ( he's busy). So, that would be forthcoming if he wants me to do what I suggested. Meantime I'll wait till he has time to think about it and decide if my offer is worth following up, etc.
Thanks, Trevor. Especially for taking the time to make screenshot as well as info about using for SFX. I hadn't thought of that possibility.
