At anyrate, I started to write a blog post yesterday, entitled "A Testy Tuesday", but just couldn't bring myself to publish a post about the awful, irrational grouch that was myself. I really had "growl" issues yesterday. I was cold...I was hungry...I was probably herxing. Not that any of the above give me any excuse to be a regular pain. I tried to keep my mouth shut and my brain on lock-down (it wasn't long after getting up yesterday that I knew I was in for a day of grueling self-control)...I have a "feeling" that I oozed bad temper.
Still, for all that bad blood boiling in my veins, I managed to plough through 31 AfterEffects. Granted, I imagine some of them will need a little more tweaking, but each revision brings them closer to "perfect"...if anything can ever be completely perfect. I guess I would have to ask more experienced filmmakers if that is so...
Today, though with a much better temperament (Praise God! One day like that is enough at a time...), I only managed 9. Of course, one took all morning and I still wasn't done with it by the time it was time for lunch. I know that one is going to need revision...but because I used nearly all video (rather than stills), I cannot see it well enough (RAM previews are too choppy), to tell how fantastically (or horridly, as it might be) that it worked out.
That leaves me with just a few more to do...and then I will RENDER and RENDER...and then drop them into the timeline...and cringe...and laugh...and growl... ;)
Okay, so you get the point. More revision will follow. I'm getting so...SO close...and I'm getting excited. :)
One of the reasons I only got nine done (other than AE crashed around 5:15--not long before I was going to go feed the chickens anyway; I decided not to restart it today), was that I washed eggs and made bread after lunch.
