      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

video editing software?

Recommended Posts

Jeremy airjer W

I am looking to buy software to edit video. I'm not looking for high end stuff just enough to transfer home movies to DVD and possibly creating some short how to videos. Most importantly I want to be able to see whats going on in the timeline for video and music.

So far I have narrowed it down to either pinnacle studio ultimate 11 or Ulead video studio 11 plus.

Any thoughts on these two would be great or if you have some in site on another I would appreciate those comments as well.

*sigh* Why don't people just by Mac's?

Seriously, there are lots of really good video editing software out there.

I'd go with whatever version a close friend of yours has so you can compare notes.....

As long as your PC is fairly Optimized with a enough Extra Hard drive space for video which can take up a lot of space and a decent Proccessor for encoding, along with Firewire or USB 2 you should have no problems running either program.

Not sure which format your Camcorder has but if you don't need HD you could get by with the lower-priced VideoStudio 11 "non-Plus" for around $40.

Good Luck sounds like your on the right track!

Have you tried Windows Movie Maker? Works pretty darn good IMO. Not only that, but if you go to You Tube, there are tons of video tutorials by everyday users to help you out. Just do a Movie Maker search.

I think all the software choices listed you can download a trial version and take it for a test drive. Play around and see what you like.

I'd also take a look at the forums for that software to see what the users have to say.

I'm a fan of Sony's software, like Vegas Movie Studio.

Here's my take on it.

Pinnacle 11 for me has the same problems 8,9, and 10 all had - dropping of video frames. Most of the time, it's only 5-10 frames, but for some unexplained reason, other times it's dropped 50-100/minute.

Ulead is ok, but I have found it's editing style to be really hard to use, but it always captures perfectly.

If you really want something powerful, and something that I have never had any issues with - try Adobe Premier. it's always worked really good for me. It does have a very high, uhm...what's the word.....learning curve, or whatever it is. But, it works really well.

I'd consider Adobe - that's what I use. Little more spendy, but it's well worth the effort and $$$.

Hope this helps,

You may want to look at the full version of Quicktime.

I have a new loaded dell XPS in Dimensions clothing. The only difference between the two was the power supply. I loaded the dimension with the upgraded goodies and saved a bundle over the equivalent XPS! I think I'm o.k. on the PC end.

I have looked at the premier by adobe. I have Illustrator and find it more difficult to use than CorelDraw but I also have been using Corel since version 3 back in the mid 90's! So I'm a little reluctant about the adobe stuff!

I use the latest version of Nero and works pretty good. It doesn't get real involved, but it does the job pretty well.

I second using Nero it is really easy. I downloaded the free trial first then bought it. I bought Pinnacle 10 but it wasn't compatable with windows vista on my new computer. I did try windows movie maker first but the quality was shotty at best it was kinda jumpy. But it depends on the comp. I Know. I have a dell inspiron and like nero.

      Lots of birds kept spots open and the snow covered them now. It’s dangerous if you just rush out. Take your time if you are going to Ann lake or Lori or any in that area.  This my stomping grounds and there only one lake I would fish in the area

      Fished from 0815-1230 today out from McKinley out to 26 FOW. Found about 10.75 inches good ice with snow cover varying from 2 inches up to close to a foot in the soft drifts but still not too bad for hiking while dragging the flip over. Had decent action from 0830-0930 bringing up 8 walleyes less than 12 inches long, a 12 inch perch and 2 tullibees all released. About 50-50 on set line vs glow jigging spoon both with chubs. Not sure why I couldn't connect on better quality fish. Still a nice morning with the snow lightly falling and peaks of sun. Good running into you, Cliff! Hopefully we'll cross paths again this winter.

      I may make it over to Elysian, Francis, or Tetonka this Saturday. Depends what I find on the Mississippi tomorrow afternoon. From what I have heard the ice on the backwaters around Winona and La Crosse may actually be in better shape than that around Waseca and Faribault, which is kind of odd for early ice. Usually the south-central MN lakes freeze up just a bit quicker.
    • JIvers
      I'd be surprised if there were much good ice on Bartlett this weekend--that deep water with a bit of current takes a while to freeze--but I may go out and take a look anyway tomorrow when I am up in the area getting my first ice fix of the year in. Anyone got any early ice reports for the Mississippi backwaters around Winona and Lacrosse? I'll be adding mine tomorrow night.
