Trying to get back into the swing of things...
Holy hot damned pancakes it's been a flipping long time... I think I went full on A.D.D. with electronics for a while. I tried building an 8x8x8 LED cube with a friend and never finished it. I still have an illogical, but undying hate for 8 bit shift registers. I mean it's almost done, but I apparently got the wrong kind of bit shifters and need to spend around $3.50 to get the right ones, but just haven't been willing to put in the order yet.
I ended up purchasing Sony Vegas Pro 13 on a huge sale for a relatively good price. While I would have preferred to get Adobe Premiere and After Effects I couldn't bring myself to buy into their monthly software rental program as a single year of that would have cost me six times what I spent for Sony Vegas Pro which I own outright and can use for the next decade if I want to. So I've dumped 100's of hours into learning that piece of software through watching YouTube tutorials and just playing with all its features. I still don't think I have the eye for cutting pieces of video together. As most of my jump cuts look like some kind of a test for epilepsy, but I'll figure it out eventually or be sued by some poor bastard that unfortunately found out they were epileptic due to watching one of my videos.
