It is hard working video, harder still if one is a Muppet that has the mental retention facilities of a fruit fly. Bear with me please while I subject you to more playtime. I think I am getting better at this video nonsense. I still can’t get rid of the black bits which YouTube seem to insist on. I rendered this at 1280x720. Is this standard wide format?
We went out goat hunting but couldn’t find the little devils. We walked and walked and all the while the other camera was shooting one frame every three seconds. I had three thousand Raw files to look through upon our return. 15GB that’s a lot. It would have been more but I’d popped a half dead battery in the camera. An impossible task only a few years ago.
I did have a posh laptop built by PCSpeciallists a year ago. Her fans whir fit to fly when I process fifty gigabytes worth of junk. I told them I would do, it does it and they were star bars. I’d love to run this amount of crap through a MacBook just as a test. It took my machine and Photoshop over two hours to process my RAW editing and reduce stuff into a folder fit for video. I have an old hard drive that I plug in for scratch memory otherwise one would be buggered has her majesty would say . I am impressed and happy.
I doubt you will be; what I lack in artistry I make up for in perseverance. I was really hoping to do a voice over on this video. I did get set up for it with a separate audio track but Moll and Alf chipped in every time I spoke. …I deleted me and them. Little devils.
I used to hate editing video but these days; if only now and again or once a week I quite enjoy it. Washing machines and dryers seem in synchronicity with the job. It is one hell of a challenge. These frames were all, all 1557 of them sharpened way over in the P’Shop RAW converter.
The video says it all. It is the state of my art. Have a great weekend.
I have re-edited the video after much advice from John at MIDMARSH JOTTINGS.
Many, many thanks John. I’d got so I couldn’t see the wood for the trees. Your second suggestion was spot on. I’d typed 1080 and not 1280. I do have a brain but sometimes it switches itself off. If I could afford the salary I’d offer you a full time job as Mentor to the Muppet.
