The video is fun, sure, but there is no *special* software.

For good software.

Adobe Premier and After Effects (what I use).

For YouTube just make sure you render it for the channel for the best video quality so that YouTube doesn't convert it for you.

Basically render in Adobe Flash .F4V

K-30 doesn't have auto focus when taking video.
Other than just judging by looking at the live view, how do you tell if you are on focus or out of focus?

The K-30 does have video AF but it's a one-time refocus per AF button press only, so you have to press it each time the subject distance changes. It's sluggish and erratic though, a shame as the live view AF is quite good.

Ah, thanks for clearing up. I will give it a try.
