As I said, video/film editing software seems to have a mind of its own. Played back my “final” version and my final saves weren’t in there! So exporting now….. fingers crossed.
So, I am actually writing this as the video renders…. I can hear the computer whirring away.
I’ve had to quickly pick up working with the Adobe Premiere interface thanks to my truly excellent co-editor Ben Hunt. He has done a great job although I still find software has a mind of its own when it comes to the final edit: just when you think it is all done, you go back and find loads of glitches and frames in the wrong place.
The sound editor, Tom McCarthy, has done the best job possible, considering how unconsidered my recordings were.
Fingers crossed now with the export and testing at the cinema (Dover’s Silver Screen cinema). This is going to take a few days so I am cutting it a bit fine if there are any more edits to do.
So now I am finalising the sound and have found a sound editor to do a very professional job at a preferential rate! Phew. There is quite a lot of narrative so the sound does have to be as good as I can make it. I think I need to get some slightly better equipment though for the next project.
