Doing Some Testing

Again, no videos. But with a new year, there are some changes. You see, I’m testing a new video editing software, and I’m hoping to get some better-looking videos out soon.

What you’re going to see soon are video overlays (images over the video) and picture in picture (mainly for the end screen). I first need to figure out how to do it. However, for speed and efficiency, I’ll still be using the old video editor for some of my videos. Upcoming videos include:

  • Passengers movie review (old editor)
  • First video in a new series about world building (new editor)
  • The next A Taste of Japan video (old editor)
  • Retro Book Review of Speaker for the Dead (old editor)
  • Authors Answer video (old editor)
  • New channel trailer (new editor)
  • Science channel trailer (new editor)

So you see, it really depends on what I plan on doing. When I have the new editor figured out, I’ll be switching over to using that exclusively, and you’ll get to see the new end screens.

A Return to YouTube

Well, I finally did it. I uploaded a new video to YouTube. It’s been a while. I’ll let my video explain what’s going on with the channel.

So, basically, I’ll be doing a lot of travel videos, vlog style videos about life in Japan, and I’ll document our move to Canada. I’ll also take a lot of videos when we’re in Canada, especially the first week. We’ll be traveling a bit.

What’s new with these videos is that I’m using VideoPad, a video editor that was recommended to me by S. R. Carrillo.  I’d been using the YouTube editor before, and I’m finding VideoPad to be much faster and easier to use. Doing cuts is a lot easier, too.  I haven’t used the editor to add text yet, but my next two videos will include it.

Since I’ve returned to making videos regularly, it’s a great time to subscribe to my channel. So, please go and subscribe!
