I'm out
(as in "I've outed myself", more commonly used for gay people exposing their sexual orientation, though not in that sense)

Nobody really wanted to see what I look like. I know. However, the editing of these videos was a painstaking process. Took me the better part of a week. I wanted to put up at least micro clips somewhere on the web. In these clips, the bespectacled fellow with an oversized round balding head is me. (many people have compared my features with Subhas Chandra Bose). Likewise the missus and the lass.
We'll be traveling to Khajuraho, Bandhavgarh and Pachmari with a brief touchdown at Jabalpur the second week of March. Anyone who can share some travel tips esp. the journey from Khaj to Bandhavgarh and availability and rates of vehicle rental in the area, please do. I'll be grateful.

p.s. As compared to utube which sucked big time, Vimeo was a breeze. Uploading speed was fantastic and features offered for a free account were great.

Hey, great videos! How do you do all this editing? I mean, what software? I've stopped shooting videosbecause they tend to be too long and rambling. Editing them makes them very snappy and viewable. Great job

And high five to the family.

Never been to bandhavgarh and Pachmari, tho I've been planning to (no shopping malls there, apparently)

I've used Cyberlink Powerdirector 7.0(pirated of course) which is sort of middle of the road between the resource grabbing pro standard (read Adobe premiere) and amateurish (read ulead or Pinnacle studio).
As re. absence of malls, I can understand. Actually, that's another plus for these places. You have minimum exposure.

Nice work.

for editing try iMovie

@Sud : Thanks bro. Yes, I hear imovie is great. Not an apple person, I'm afraid.
