It’s taken me 3 FLIPPIN’ Days to get this stupid video file to work. I admit it. I do not have any hidden talents for video. I am a sketch book wielding power house, with a minus modifier to moving pictures.
All nerdiness (well, not ALL) aside, my Sunday post was to be as follows:
Hello Everyone and welcome to day 2 of my vacation. It’s good time to work on my mural, so I decided to set up the vid cam to film me working. If you’ve seen the flickr photos, you know that I have been working on this for some time. Finally, I have the time to finish it. It took me all day, but I finally got it done.

I hope you can see it alright. The thing that gave me the issue was speeding up the film. Seems iMovie 08 is a crap program that is so picky that it won’t even import files from Quicktime unless it is perfect (ie, exactly the codex that it wants. I read several different forums where snotty mac-experts tried to tell the obviously frustrated posters that they just weren’t listening and if they would only a), b), c x 43 divided by infinity, that it would work. HELLO??? Do you even understand how many people use OSX because it’s supposed to be user friendly? I tried 15 different file formats and then gave up. Luckily, Cas has iMovie 07 (or some version earlier than crappy mc crapperton’s iMovie 08), so I was able to import my video and FINALLY get it to play faster. Unfortunately, my computer is quite a bit faster and more beefy than Cas’s comp, so it took quite a bit longer for the video to render.
