Google Maps on Video
on Aug 6, 2010 at 8:42:08 pm

hello All,

I was wondering if anyone knows how OR has done it before...

I have seen a number of times on ABC's Nightline...

They have a Video Insert of Wide Location via Google Map/Earth n then Zoom into the spot

I am editing a Documentary and would love to do this OR something similar

Any and all recommendations, creative suggestions, etc... really appreciate it

thanks

Google earth has a pro version. - http://www.google.com/enterprise/earthmaps/earth_pro.html

It let's you record videos and such. I I actually used the free version, set points with no names, then change the settings so there is no visible pin. Screencaptureprograms were very studdery, so I put the browser on my black magic "desktop" and recorded the signal on an HD deck. Digitized the tape and added it to my edit. Because the playback was still studdery, even on my 8core I set the playback to really slow, then speed ramped it in my edit.

Trying to follow -- if you could elaborate -- and sure I will learn more as I try it --

do you have a Brief sample of what you did? if you don't mind -- showing it --- either Video or a Screenshot

thanks

Bare with me - im on my ipad and my site is only in flash so I'm going off memory here ---- but If you go to my website - http://www.ricksebeck.com then click on work, then click on tradeshows you will see some of the multiscreen projects I've done. The Siemens projects the one I was specifically talking about.

You could take stills from Google Earth and the use this technique;

Not entirely sure about copyright issues with images from google earth though.

"Not entirely sure about copyright issues with images from google earth though." - Andrew McKee

The broadcasters (ABC, etc.) have cleared permissions and they attribute the images to google - typically a google logo bug.

We used google maps for several different shows a while back. Licensing is not free. There was the purchase fee and then a per use fee. Maybe your use won't be as much as ours was for broadcast programming, but it certainly won't be free.
