I have been TRYING my best to start with the writing part of a book i am writing…i have been kicking ass with the research part..and sometimes i spend HOURS collating the research…meanwhile none of the hard part is getting done. So I figured i would kick myself in the ass in a different manner. last night i got out and tried video taping some of the crap that I have been doing….it’s a rather crappy tape… but not half bad for something i cobbled together with no planning, and no forethought. I was a little miffed to find that my video editing software Studio 10 won’t edit what comes out of the iphone..for that i need to buy Studio 12….and since i can’t justify that expense…i used youtube’s free video editing software which for all it’s clunkyness…did an OK job gluing together all the little snippets i had shot. Few of the sections were over a minute so it’s rather wonky. i Do have a video editor inside the iphone (there are a LOT of video editor apps) and if i had thought about it for more than a minute i would have used one of them before i ported the video out of the phone. Once you pull it out it’s a bitch to get back in the bottle. Like i said, next time i will try harder. but it will be a while, i already pulled down all the bandit signs in town..and i draw the line at WISHING for a bandit sign.
I will go looking for a hands free solution to filming..the iphone also doesn’t like tripods.
IN case you were wondering this
