I took my thoughts on FUEL and distilled them into a short video. Most of this was stuff I’d covered before, but it was nice to be able to go over it with the help of visuals.
I use Windows Movie Maker once a year, and every time I have to re-learn the whole thing. The goofy way it organizes media. The little interface quirks that will crash it. The flukes that create little clicks and pops when going from one muted soundtrack to another. I finally have it figured out now, but I’m sure I’ll have forgotten it all again next time I sit down to make a video.
Ah well. Hope you find it interesting. Please spread it around if you do.
