Forza 4 Multiple Camera Replays

Was a bit bored and fancied learning Adobe Premiere which has the option of Multicam which lets you load up more than one video and do a sort of live edit

You just click on each video file as they play and it puts in the edit points for you so does all the hard work

Adobe Premiere Multicam preview screen

3 different angles from one Forza race

Few different angles plus a couple of different driver view points

There not to bad for the first couple of go's

Grid Demolition Derby

Not played Demolition Derby on Grid for a while so it was time to fire up and spend the night getting wrecked

Ps it's such a shame Codemasters never added it to Grid 2 as it's still one of the most popular racing types on Grid and there's still full lobbies every night

All captures are done with a Roxio Game Capture HD Pro

Antec NSK2400 and a MSI GeForce GTX 660 Graphics Card

Bewared if you try and fit a MSI GeForce GTX 660 Graphics Card into a Antec NSK2400 case as the 6 pin power connector to the Graphics Card will hit the top of the case by about 4mm

Going to trim down the connector on the power lead which should give me just enough room to get the case lid back on

Banned from Richer Sounds

Think i may be banned from my local Richer Sounds, was in there the other day to swap over a TV which had a problem and was standing minding my own business waiting for the shop assistant to get my TV from the store room when i overheard another shop assistant trying to sell someone a £60 HDMI Lead saying it was the best thing since sliced bread, well me being me and not like seeing people being ripped off i couldn't help myself and had to tell the person "Don't do it" in front of the shop assistant and pointed out that a HDMI Lead costing less than a £10 would do the same job just as well

The women thanked me for the advice and told the assistant it was ok and she would buy else where, so my job was done and i walked out with a smile on my face as i had stopped someone being ripped off

Have to say the Richer Sounds shop assistant had a face like thunder :)

Antec NSK2400 and Gigabyte SKT-1155 G1 Sniper M3 Motherboard

Be warned if your thinking of using a Gigabyte SKT-1155 G1 Sniper M3 Motherboard in a Antec NSK2400 case as you can't get at the SATA sockets as there at a right angle and you don't have any room to plug the leads in

Only way round the problem is to cut a hole in one of the internal walls or cut it right out :/
