Wall Racers final fast film :D
« on: June 09, 2008, 03:34:38 PM »
- I had to reduce quality etc, unfortunately, as Youtube now only offers up to 100MB.. and my original edit was 300MB. So sorry for the poor quality.. I still hope you can feel the wind :D

[youtube]wnbhyw0gMh0[/youtube]

The car-chase was made by holding a camera on a stick, chasing the cars around. Some clips where made by placing the camera on a record-player. All editing was done in the standard "free" program that comes with a Mac, called iMovie. It is a nice program for light editing.. but phew, it was pushed to make this

I am going to make a complete tutorial; These are very easy to make, takes 3-5 hours a piece. A cheap RC car, 4 relays, a Picaxe (or another) controller, 300 bytes of code, and 2 SRF05's (or other sensors)..

Thanks :) It would take that someone would by then, though ;)

Now - after a long search - I have found a place with decent video quality. And made a new edit:
