Re: Idling On the Backroads: video/audio looping piece uploaded

Very cool, Rick. I knew you would go out and get a tiny camera!! :)  I 
have your beat-box video on my phone from our get together last week. Once 
figure out how to save it to my drive, I'll send it to you.

I have Vegas, but I use a program called Roxy Media Pro instead. It is 
less processor intensive, easy to use, and has many of the same video 
effects as Vegas. I used it to produce my Microcosmic Horrors DVD.
