I really should’ve done this all last night. But I held out until this morning, hoping to get maybe a little footage of the Canadian free skates, or at least a full list of the 4CC/Junior Worlds team. Though waiting did mean reporting Savchenko & Szolkowy’s withdrawal from Euros, but the only thing that allowed me to finish the editing this morning was expected icy conditions(which didn’t seem to manifest) letting me leave for work and hour and half late, and even then it was still saving(though at least it did so without complications, which really surprised me; I was in such a hurry I almost didn’t try to save to an smaller size and quality sound first), so I could only upload it now. I was dreading it being blocked, but instead it wasn’t claimed at all.

I wanted this one done tonight because the YOG frees start tomorrow morning, though it wasn’t easy, what with Dancing on Ice holding everything up, and the developing story on Savchenko today to boot. At least saving was no problem, though Universal Sports claimed the copyright, so there may be ads.
Quite frankly, when I have as little footage from two nationals as I did this week, the least this damn vid should be able to do with fewer clips thus used is save without complications. But no, it would save to one format this week, and in the process I lost large parts of the voice track from the second half; I pretty much gave up on annotations during the Bolero segment and again towards the end. I actually got an iPad for Christmas with a camera built in; perhaps I shall be driven to use it not by my vids being blocked, but by the sound continually being dropped. Except I don’t know if that would even help.
Once again I had to go the long way round and mess the sound up, and this time Universal Sports claimed the copyright, but like the ISU they’re not blocking it anywhere.
And I don’t start working now for two more weeks, but this weekend(and today) was so crazy I wondered how I was to get this vidoe completed. At least it saved to a usable format immediately for the first time in months! Though the ISU claimed copyright. They haven’t blocked it anywhere, but there may be advertisements.
It was the kind of Monday today where I put down a page of a government form I’d just printed to dry, glanced at my Twitter, and found out Bruce Boudreau had just been fired. Though I actually did much of the audio recording over the weekend; just about the only section I recorded this morning is the one where I mention I’m recording Monday morning; I had to hold on that one, of course, in case the situation changed overnight. Next week, I’ll be working and everything possible will be done on Sunday(except the Skate Canada Challenge ends then, so next week’s video might be a late posting). Annotations to this should be done tonight. I think.
This one I started working on earlier still, but I didn’t have much time for it this weekend anyway. Still despite MovieMaker crashing four times while editing and then a fifth time during my initial attempt to convert I got it uploaded around nine-and then it would not process. I finally slept on it and woke up to find it finally had processed, and just finished the annotations.
Worse and worse. This one had my video converter failing on me, my MovieMaker declaring there wasn’t enough memory and refusing to save even the project file, I didn’t get an uploadable file until it was well past midnight(though I started over two hours earlier, and only discovered this morning half an hour more and I would have had footage from Battle of the Blades Sunday night), and to top it off while annotating it this morning I discovered there were two huge stretches where the sound shorted out, and with so many results displayed annotations are harder; in the regionals section I’m afraid I just gave up; that’s just going to be scores without commentary. I don’t know how much more of this I can bear.
