I'm sitting in the editing bay, not even really editing, just converting videos to new file types.
It's a pain in the ass!
Editing always feels like it's going to be easy: you shoot something, you have a vision of what you want it to look like in your head when it's all done & so it should be easy to just take the shots & put them in the right order, right?
No! And I'm not even talking about the art of editing, it is definitely more complex than just sticking shots together, I can appreciate the art & the amount of time it requires – you go into the process expecting that – but the technology! Gah! It is SO frustrating & almost guarantees to double your required work time!
The only reason I have time to write this right now is because the machine goofed & I had to restart the program.
I'm also grouchy because I'm hungry. I should probably eat before I attack the machine.
See you tomorrow!
