Comic 828 – “Video Editing”
Errol: Poor Debs. I always get the impression that she thinks things I do are easily and quickly done. ^_^ Well, to be fair, I don’t know if she thinks that any more. Now I think she’s worried about my time. Heck, I think Manpans is worried about my time too. Maybe I should worry about it…
Or just watch more Doctor Who.
Debs: Actually we took Sunday off – Adam had to work and I had to go to the terrifying wedding show. But we’re back at it today! And yes, I do think that because you tell me often that you just try to get things done as quickly as you can so that you move on 😛
Editing videos takes WAY longer than shooting videos. Way longer. Waaaaaaaaaaayyyyy longer.
There’s a reason why we don’t do much video, but we hope to do more this year!
I stupidly volunteered myself to edit a video for my older sister for school once, since my laptop has a (crappy) webcam and mike, plus Windows Movie Maker. She has none of these things, so she took the laptop, recorded the video, and then cried over how awful it was. I then struggled for two to three hours with her quiet voice, bad lighting, and an obscene amount of “umm”s.
This is why I don’t put videos on YouTube.
Also, I’m getting caught up with Doctor Who, since my Netflix only has up to the 2012 Christmas special. I think I got up to the submarine one. I then gave up on my still-shoddy internet and watched a few Eccleston episodes because yaaaay Nine is best Doctor.
I’m about 5 episodes into the 7th season! ^_^ We’re almost caught up!
I cheated and just recorded my mom’s one year old Golden Retriever playing…no editing needed, just a puppy being happy. The two of you should list what videos you watch on Youtube that mellow you out 🙂
Why would I want to mellow out? ^_^
He’s right. I am worried about his time. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT WE’RE DOING!
You could have asked me…..
Well Adam (on top of being a friend and former roommate) is a colleague of mine and seasoned pro at editing, and living not too far from where Debs is living certainly helps. I don’t think Debs meant it as a slight towards you Lore, but Adam is rather convenient for her. Note that she also didn’t ask me. 😉 Presumably because I’ve been too busy lately and have enough 3GP stuff to edit.
And I am endlessly amused by comic Debs trying to tell comic Errol how much work editing is. I feel rather smug about it actually. 😉
Ah okay. I didn’t think it was a slight, just… sad. I *LIKE* editing….
And I figured they had asked you first, lol.
Ja-Mez is correct, Debs needs to hover over any work that is being done. Especially if she’s crazy passionate about it.
She was wanting this vid done Friday. Poor Adam.
I can just imagine
Adam: How’s this?
Adam: What? I just spliced these two scenes together.
Debs: Make it prettier.
