I've had a lot of feedback from you all, encouraging me to go ahead with 'Pleasantview'. I am so flattered that over a hundred people voted on my poll and 98% of you want me to continue! So ... I started filming today.
It was a relief to see that all my files were intact and I didn't have to rebuild or reload anything. I was also surprised that I remembered all the game cheats and the film techniques I use - like riding a bike :) I had to purchase the latest version of Corel Video studio, which is a pleasure to edit with. I'm having a lot of fun.
One thing though. I can't get the resolution to look exactly the same as it did on the old computer, so the video looks just a little stretched now. I've spent a bit of time mucking around with it, but I cannot replicate the old 'look' exactly. But I'm happy with it, I just hope you guys are.
If you go to my new Pleasantview site you will see that I have posted Chapter One of Dina and Mortimer's Honeymoon. I will be posting more over the coming days and weeks so check back when you can.
Ok, that's about it for now. Thanks so much for your interest and support, it's very motivational :) I'm going back to filming now ...
