"I've been seeing notices like that.  Worth passing on. QT Pro (which could make videos as well as play them) was once a very useful app on PC as well as Mac, I used to use it a lot on my old Pentium 4.    Not worth the security…"

It could be an issue for your home personal computers. There are…See More

Steve Copeland replied to Tony Mitton's discussion White Background Question
"I have gone back and reread the thread and I am afraid it looks like Antony Scott wants a white background. Several people mentioned green screen and then are going to composite it onto the white. Here is the quote that I was going on and I am…"

"I assume you are talking about a film for the stop motion jam. While i have no say in how it is supposed to be done I am doing something similar to what you mentioned. I have a full scene in a field and will be fading in from white and then fading…"

"Well the video did not lie. I am very happy with my home made sticky wax that I was able to make for $1.99 (I already had Olive Oil). I used a cut beer can as my wax boiler. Not the best idea because the boiling water almost tipped it over."

" I don't think the cheese idea will work for me. The Tacky wax would be perfect but it is also not in stock at any Walmart within 50 miles. However the local Hobby Lobby has Bard's Tacky wax. So as soon as they open I will see if they…"
