I’ve gotten away with using an ’07 copy of Final Cut Express, until now. Until my new laptop. I miss it a bit, I was super lightening fast.
I used some of the failed footage from Thursday to figure it out the new software.
Remember when I was pumped about that codec a few weeks back? That was part of this process, which is now done *wipes forehead*.
Here’s a one-minute video I made: What Video Editing Looks Like
How to explain why I love it.… it’s the getting lost in the story, throwing the footage around the timeline, trimming and transitions, now add in some music oh YA now we’re talking! fist pump your screen!… now you’re conducting with your left hand while your right clicks the crap out of your mouse, 4 hours have passed and you have no cue, you’re too lost in creating and LOVE IT.
I’m not a fan of the new way of transitions… they’re all too fancy, and it tries to force me to put them on both ends of the clip, dumb.
You can export the video straight to YouTube, slick. And the new method of importing clips, really slick.
Have a great Monday! I’ve got a presentation to finish here, more on that soon, and start saving your pennies… Canada is deleting them as you know, and I’ve got a great thing for you to do with them for charity.
Here’s to a good start to your week today, TTY on Twitter,
