Just got around to getting the Jakes footage off the camera last night. I guess Vimeo restricts you to one HD video upload a week.. I didn't know that.
Anyway, here is a short unedited clip of Jakub Nemec's first run.
He gets through Rodeo hole ok; then gets flipped in Rock drop, does a lightning fast roll but blows by gates 1 and 2. Hits Taffypuller; and thats all I got from that angle. Standing room only at Rock Drop
Vimeo reduced it from 1080p to 720p; I guess thats fine (better playback they said).
I put a clip on Youtube, thought it was only 480, but I see that a day later its available at 720 or 1080- cool!
Ben Luck fighting for gates 1 and 2 at Rock Drop, in a 10'2" Prijon Hurricane. This is another unedited clip.

There was a serious hole left of gate 3; Ocean Wave I believe; thats why everyone was staying tight to gate 3.
Any thoughts on Vimeo vs Youtube? Is Vimeo plus better than (free) Youtube? Can anyone see the difference between 720 and 1080, on a PC monitor?
I need a good video editing program for Windows 7. I have .mts files (from a Canon Vixia), and Windows Movie Maker can't seem to deal with those. Any suggestions?
