Okay, I've replaced both tie rod ends and realigned one car (and cleaned brake pads and caliper).  Replaced the power steering line in another.  And fixed the radio (for the wife) in another.  Cold, wet, sore, and tired.

So, since I couldn't work, I came in and spent an hour warming up.  And then decided I wanted to hear the new speakers.  Have to say, I'm very pleased with them.  Way more volume than I need, and the sound is great.  I'll be ordering another pair...

But, after spending a while getting all dressed up, and tools and jacks together, I got started on the vehicles.  But, at +4 and wind at 40mph gusting to 50, it didn't take long crawling around on the snowy/icy driveway to just give it up.  Maybe tomorrow...

hitfilm?

Just came across this the other day.  Anyone ever used this?  Have any tips?

https://hitfilm.com/

They have a free express edition.  I've been wanting to make better edited music videos for awhile, so I'll be sure to follow up if I have any successful.

I have the Pro version of Hitfilm, RK.  I actually have over a dozen video editors that I use and keep updated, but Hitfilm Pro is the strongest by far.  I've been using it since before it was called HitFilm (can't remember the old name right now, too many years ago).

The Express version is supposed to be pretty good, but I've never used that one.  From what I've seen, it should do most anything you'll need or want.  Might be a steep learning curve if you've never done any higher end video editing, but you shouldn't have any trouble.  And tons of tutorials out there for Hitfilm.

Looking forward to seeing what you do with it...

I think the tutorials available is main thing that caught my eye.

I want to start making animated lyric videos, like these



apparently it is usually done with adobe products from what I understand.

Also, though I doubt I'll ever have enough time to ever get good with it, I would like to bring some of my imaginative 7 year old daughter's stories to life. Might be something fun to learn together.

I have all of Adobe's editors, too, and they're good, but Hitfilm (Pro) is even better.

You'll get good with it, because once you start playing with it and figuring out how to do the various effects, you won't be able to stop looking for more fun things to do with it.  And every tutorial will entice you to try all those things.

Too bad more people here aren't into video editing, in addition to the ODC we could have a semi-annual video challenge.  That would be very cool...  (-!)

snare on 2 and 4.  the rest is just filler.

unless it's something silly, like prog, then you can do whatever you want. :)

If I start utilizing express regularly and liking it, I'll probably eventually want to buy pro.  That's how Reaper was for me... though I'm pretty sure I still don't use 90% of the features.

Just this, and get my full midi orchestra template setup in Reaper again, and build those last two guitars, and on and on...

Very possible, RK, but I'm pretty sure Express will keep you busy for a while, playing with all the cool stuff and working through all the tutorials.  I expect to see a slick video coming out soon...
