i got to try my hand at video editing in making a gameplay trailer for my game beem. like sound editing, it’s actually not so bad, until you get to the end. there are officially 1 million different settings and encodings you can export your movie with.
since i don’t understand any of them, i have to start guessing, and it turns out its like a super slow version of russian roulette, because it takes 30 minutes to encode 1 minute and 30 seconds of movie, and half of my guesses end up being a sound track on top of a black screen.
in other news, beem is sitting in the ‘waiting for review state’ in the app store. i am super stoked for it to become available on the app store. i’ve been working on it for so long i don’t really believe it. it’s like christmas morning times too much.
