Well, everyone is doing the video thing and I thought I’d give it a try… it was kind of a no-go with my old camera but here I am with the new one. There’s a small learning curb so I apologize ahead of time. The first video I shot was of me throwing and to my surprise it was 20 minutes long and I didn’t mention in a previous post that while downloading, because it was taking so long, I forgot and looked over at the camera as I gotten in the habit of doing, saw the light was still on and thought… “I’m running down the batteries”. In this case I always just reach over and unplug the camera from the computer, which I did, and interrupted the download. I tried to salvage but it wouldn’t let me and I lost the video. The next day I did the video in this post and thought because I was trimming that it would be shorter and it is but it’s still 8 and a half minutes. I’m coming to the painful conclusion that I work slowly… damn! So you’ve been forwarned, it’s long. Next I tried to attach to the post and it wouldn’t let me attach an .avi or a .mov, maybe it’s a wordpress thing? There was music playing in the original and when I saved it as a .mov (quicktime), I sped it up so it was only about 2 or 3 minutes but it sped up the music and I couldn’t get rid of the audio. Next I decided I had to upload to youtube and post it that way. On youtube you can assign music to replace whatever the audio is and I did that but it only plays for a couple minutes and then it’s silent. So here ya go… a long video of not throwing but trimming with some irish music for a couple minutes and then silence.
I also took a short one of the new pup, Sunglasses… she’s such a cutie and is already part of the family. Sofia cried because she wouldn’t get into bed with her.
