(Don'Wow. I know may have mentioned once or twice that I am moving. Well, the moving truck came on Thursday, and we moved out of our house and into a hotel on Friday. We will be parked here until next Tuesday, when we take three planes to our final destination: Israel!
Ok, so let's think about this equation:
(Hotel + Hotel Wi-Fi + 3 adorable distractions) x Capstone Video = A boatload of fun!
A few of you have mentioned in comments that you are facing similar dilemmas this quarter, so I feel good knowing we are all in this together!
I chose youtube editor for my video editor. Three reasons: I was all ready vaguely familiar with it, my husband is very familiar with it, and I have a chromebook. I don't have time to learn a new interface at this moment.
Youtube editor was pretty user friendly, I only needed to watch the tutorial three times and ask my husband about ten questions. All in all, I would say I am a fan.
The tricky part was designing the cards that cut into my video. I tried a few things, but due to time constraints and familiarity I used Screencastify. There was probably something easier to use, but it did the job pretty well.
The editing took the longest past. I ended up with about six minutes of video and I would say it took two hours of editing alone to create a usable product. My video clocks in at 2.04.
I made three mistakes I wish I could fix, and it makes me cringe when I watch the video, but to fix it, I think I would have to go back to the start. That said, I am going to give myself a solid B for the final product.
