Well, the current shelter in place and social distancing we're all doing has forced me to start doing something I've been thinking about trying for awhile: filming and editing videos.

I HATE IT! :evil: Reviews for this editing software I have claim that it's "easy" and "intuitive." FALSE! It took a hundred years and a Youtube tutorial for me to figure out how to do something as simple as clipping out the beginning few seconds! And then exporting and uploading takes another hundred years, EACH! I mean, geez, a five minute video is a HUGE amount of data! Who has time for this???

I guess I'm just spoiled. Three and a half years have gotten me accustomed to working with relatively simple, small, audio files. The next DR I edit will be pure bliss compared to this experience.

:lol: I'm still figuring out what to even USE to edit videos. I'm going through two hundred years trying to figure out what works best :lol:

That's the price you pay for video editing. I used to do a lot about 15-20 or more years ago but it's never easy and the free or cheap video editors are pretty much all rubbish. Actually I started in about 1993 or 1994 and it was murder in those days. It got easier and better but now I can't be bothered to edit video so I just shoot unedited rubbish occasionally these days.

Ha! I was involved in a project (some time ago) where we literally spliced pieces of film together!
