These are the video clips from my very first recordings in Second life, the "Ezura and AQ face tattoos" Show, presented by Evane Models Agency, November 20 - 2010. Recorded with WeGame and edited in Windows Live Movie Maker. :-/ (I'm still a newbie at this, it will take a lot of practice in both recordings and editing, this is quite diffifcult for someone whitout any previous experience)

I have edited the video clips from a models perspective, maybe boring for some people. But I like to see these hardworking models, some of the best in Sl, in their choice of poses, how they combine them, the turns and how they manage to walk so elegantly in heavy lag, their styling, etc. And of course, the outstanding creations by Ezura Xue.

This is more of a documentary type of video, when you whatch a fashion show in Second Life, this is basically what it looks like, "Second Life Reality" :-)

"Your video, EZURA & EVANE FASHION SHOW, may have content that is owned or licensed by Sony Music Entertainment", can't be seen in Germany. :-/ This is really a pain in the neck, finding the most fitting music to my videos that aren't licensed.

Cisko: I just watched you fashion video from 2009, nicely done, the pans, the zooms and the editing. There is another really good machinima maker that shoots fashion shows as well, Valentina Tremont, her videos are awesome, I love watching them, all the effects, etc...

But does these videos want me to buy the clothes? No! I guess it's a question of what audience you're aiming at. Take TreetTV's show of Mami Jewels designs, as an example. TreetTV presents Azul   yes it's a very long video, however as a potential customer I get very valuable information about every design and styling and therefore I will be more interested, to tp over to Azul and actually buy the gowns, or at least one of

Daniel. I downloaded the Live optional Movie maker for win 7, it's a tiny bit better then the default one, well at least some more animated transition effects to choose between, it's simple to use and okay for a beginner as me.


Friday: There are so many more negative aspects regarding modeling in SL, so I made the decision to quit. Fot those who are interested to find out more about why I decided to quit, check out The Glamorus Life of a Second Life Model


Cisko: The evening when I recorded the fashion show, I had installed WeGame (1 month free pro) THE SAME AFTERNOON.  I wanted to try it out so I asked Mimmi if I could record the show and she agreed. I had never recorded anything before, not to forget editing, it was like greek to me in the beginning. But slowly I'm learning how to edit  so I decided to put together the clips from The Evane show recently. No it was not a paid I basically made the video for myself and other models, this is basically what it looks like when you watch a fashion show in Second Life.

I watched TreetTV's fashion show, presenting the gorgeous gowns designed by Mami Jewel , owner of Azul, and WOW that was so professionally done. The whole presentation was very well done, detailed descriptons about every outfit, and the video IS long, but this is the kind of information people in the fashion world likes to know about. Their fashion video was more like a real TV show.

The missing details with close-ups, well I don't have a joystick or a space navigator, I'm using the keyboard and the mouse, and that is quite difficult, therefore the jerky zoomz and pans.


Thank you all so much for the feedback, positive as negative, I'm here to learn. :-)

I agree for a beginning effort you displayed the clothes and poses well. I have never tried fashion video but your comments are interesting - I can see how challenging SL can be for models.

Windows Live MM works with Win7 as part of the Windows Live optional suite. Earlier versions had stability problems apparently - but for me the Win7 version has been stable and easy to use. You can go to the Windows Live site to download it - not super easy to find but it's there. The newer version has transition effects, simple audio track adjustments, some basic video effects and easy titling - just don't expect anything fancy. No file format export options (you can't choose your format) but the hi-def rendering saved Fraps in excellent 1080p, which uploaded sharply to YouTube (although YouTube compresses to 720). There are some audio track volume issues because MS built MM with a built-in normalizing feature - so even if make the right adjustments, in YouTube your soundtrack will not play quite as loud as commercially produced earsplitters.

Good Job for your first filming in sl.  I liked that you did it from the models perspective too, after all it is a fashion show ;)

Is Windows Live Movie Maker a updated version of Windows Movie Maker?  I am using Windows Movie Maker that came with my computer's OS and have some issues with it when it comes to editing so was wondering if Windows Live Movie Maker would work better.

Yeah I know, such a headache to find music, and the music I chosed wasn't what I really wanted, but I had a previous video on YouTube with that music, that worked the, maybe not in Germany, so I took a chance. I mean after 8 hrs of clipping and editing and then you have to find the music *BIG SIGH*


I will check out the url Cisko, thanks a lot :-)
