I wish I was a bit more experienced when it came to using Vegas. I really wanted to overlap the audio between cuts, at times, instead of using the crossfades it inserts automatically, but I couldn't figure out how to change it.
Made a short film with the kids today. Editing took a couple orders of magnitude longer than the recording. I think the kids had fun though!
Tools: Fade In (demo), Canon Powershot ELPH100HS, Vegas 14.0.
Script was a page and a half.
Total running time: 1m37s
Looks like that 'page a minute' rule of thumb holds true even for this one.
Brett Domino's stuck in my head still. This song in particular. (It's in the second half of the video, but the first half sets it up quite cleverly.)
I had to set aside Caliban's War last night at a point where the authors decided to (figuratively) kick a puppy. Needed to get some distance before I could continue.. and I still haven't had enough distance, tbh.
It's not a new thing; I'll often physically leave the room if a TV show or movie is pulling a major emotional number on a character. I just.. can't. I don't know how people can sit through those situations.
There's a fan on the side of my case that's been incredibly reliable, a Nidec Gentle Typhoon. (It feeds the GPU cooler through an air filter so I don't have to blow dust as often.) I thought maybe I'd see if I could get another, but.. nope; it looks like they're completely out of that business. Old stock is going for $$$ too.. sigh.
Instead, I've ordered a pack of Arctic F12s. That way when one inevitably fails, I have others in the queue.
This disposable culture we have really blows.
I tried using Zoom for Jackbox, but it and Steam seem to get into a knife fight over who gets to steal the system audio. Not sure if that's a Windows thing or a Firefox thing.. I guess I could retest with Chrome.
Similarly I've noticed that Google Meets says I'm not streaming the audio for my presentation, when viewing the participants from a separate computer. Didn't realize that was possible. Can't seem to find presentation audio sharing.. Maybe it's only on Chrome? Will need to test.
Casablanca went over better than I hoped.
So much eye roll.
Next classics night: Firefly
The replacement case fan I bought a few months ago is already rattling. I guess it's time to find another..
Looking at the motherboard specs online, I may actually have a speed-controlled case fan header I can use. That might be nice to try and make use of. Hopefully it isn't complete junk.. this is a very old motherboard at this point, so it could be one of those situations where the hardware exists but the software doesn't.
Found it! Now to schedule a family Casablanca night..
(Huh, and I also found my Firefly and Die Hard DVDs. Score.)
