Video Editing: lessons learned

Yesterday, while at the little film shoot in Oakville, I shot some video. I filmed a bit of the trip getting there and a bit of the shooting day. I did this with the intent of using this footage to teach myself editing while producing something to post on this blog (via the magic of Youtube).

Alas, after spending a couple of hours working, I discovered what happens if you don’t save after trimming video. My computer was slow after all that work, so I thought i’d reboot before rendering. Sadly, it turned out that the trimmed bits don’t get saved, and so all my video was gone. The audio survived, but what’s a video without… Video? (Answer: audio)

So, this evening I’ll try again. If it works, you’ll see the video here.
