There are many traps that keep me from making videos for my blog.
Here are 5 of them.
Trap 1 – Video is much too complicated
This is the first trap I overcame. Video can be complicated – but it need not be.
I used to work at a cable access station and had to learn to use all sorts of complicated equipment and programs to upload a video, digitize it and then edit it. It took hours to do and sometimes more hours than I liked.
Now I have 2 cameras that take video and I use the small less expensive one as that video is easier to upload to my computer and all I then need to do is some quick editing on imovie. The other is a film camera and that makes for many extra uploading steps – so I use that one more sparingly now.
But still – I don’t do any “me” videos – why?
Trap 2 – Editing takes so long
Yes it does – or can. But once I got past the original learning curve on transitions and other things it actually became fun playing with editing. And I have edited a few short videos on outdoor topics.
[And imovie makes editing so much faster than the FinalCut program I also own.]
