I've heard people say that video editing and encoding is easy.  FALSE! 

I'm teaching myself to do this, and I think I have aged considerably in the research, trial and error process.  Remember when I tweeted about Dyson and his 5,000+ failures?  Yeah.  That's what I was talkin' 'bout.

I'm getting there, albeit like molasses on a frozen pipe.  Not for lack of desire, mind you. I just don't know didley about video.

They say as we attempt to acquire and master new technology, productivity goes down. WAAAAAAY down.  Yup!

Then, once mastered, productivity soars skyward.  I'm still waiting for that to happen.  For that Step 1, Step 2, Step 3 and BINGO!!! High quality video packed into a less-than-monolith sized file.

But, I'm nothin', if not persistent. *wink*

This video was supposed to go with yesterday's post.  But, I gave up in the wee hours trying to get the dang settings right for the encoding so the end result wasn't total crap.  I'm not even going to tell you how many times I tried. Because you would then ask me if I was daft. And, at that hour, I would have to swear I was indeed. *chuckle*

Hope you enjoy, cuz Hades could indeed freeze over before I ever find the magic formula . . .


  1. This was FABULOUS. I learned so much in that 3 minutes. Thank you!!!!

  2. Great video, very cute card!

  3. I am really behind with my blogs, so I didn’t get a chance to see the video until today… WOW!!! It’s one of my favorites! Not only did I learn a lot of little tricks from it, but I love how you put music to it and made it fast. No wasted time with lots of chit-chat… Sometimes I want to get right to the instructions! Thank you, you are amazing!

  4. Christiana, I totally sympathize. So much to figure out! YOU WILL GET THERE!!! Would love to see your final results! *hugs & encouragement*

  5. Oh, that’s a great tip, Diane!!! Thank you! I’ll have to look for this stuff next time I get off The Rock!
