In case you don't read this text, be sure to stick around for the "super secret" surprise ending.
I recently purchased one of Karen's panels. This is not news. But I was waiting to put together a video until I had it framed. Unfortunately, the frame's not going to happen immediately, so I thought I'd try out Final Cut Express (3.5.1) and see how I could get it to work for me.
So really, this was an exercise in FCE. I obviously need some practice with it. I'm too used to iMovie HD, and missed some of the easy features there (like the "real time" previews of effects and the easy titles), but I really liked how I could do more with FCE. I'm excited to give it another chance or two.
My main problem with putting this video together was that I edited first, and then tried to find music. Big mistake. I don't think I quite recovered from it, but alas, I've already spent a lot of time on it and need to move on.
