Why Hello! The above is the first video I’ve made so far from our recent holiday trip back to Arizona – even though I took everything with my new Kodak Zi6 “HD” camera (it’s one of those pocket cams like the Flip) – this isn’t HD since… I’m still trying to figure out the file conversions and getting Premiere Pro to actually render these files without it blowing up halfway through the process. 🙂
You’ll notice in this video there some weird momemnts of zoom and panning – I ran this through an image stabilizer and I’m still learning how to adjust the settings so it’s not as weird – but I liked the oddly smooth panning with a vibrating picture, so I left it this time.
It’s the MLK holiday today – and that’s cool – I actually have it OFF – I haven’t had this holiday for at least a decade and… Well, we can safely say that Leah and I have both acted like we knew we had today off (we’ve pushed nearly ALL of our homework/stuff to do over the weekend until TODAY.) So we have a lot to get done today and we both have to focus – on the busy-ness and then everything.
Oh. I’ve also recently come up with a new idea… for something. And I’m being rather vague because I’m always coming up with ideas – well, schemes really – and only about half ever workout (truly, maybe on 1/4 if I’m counting correctly – and that’s with a bias) – but this is probably one of my grandest schemes to date, but the reason it may work is because unlike other schemes that pop out of my head – this one takes considerably more work upfront before it could ever get to a point past… past me talking about it here on this blog.
So. Um. Add this to the list of everything. Learning. Ruby. and then Rails.
