I've just begun my usual indepth research on this topic. Â Wow, how ignorant I am. Â Video Art has a HIS/HERSTORY. Â many different approaches. Â i am intrigued by still image animation. Â i am housebound for medical reasons so i cannot go out ansdd shoot the video i'd like, so still image work will serve me swell. Â bit apparently is still best done with a video camera rather than a still camera, so i'm witing on my new camera to come along with a book ortwo. Â in the meantime i'm painting images for an animation. Â tedious, but satisfying. Â by the way, i found a software package which has really impressed me as for 50 dollars you get a Â quality video editor, cvd software, audio and video converters. Â its called avs4you and no i did't get paid for the recommendation. Â it's much better Â than wmm.
