    Nature sounds and sights of Spring video

    Got a beefy new laptop and getting back into the video editing game.

    First order of business, I went through caddisgirl's cam. Found some cool clips in there (deer, bears, lizards, various birds & insects, etc) and put together a spring-theme video.

    Nice, how long did it take you to complete it?

    Editing and posting up the video took about 2 hours, with the caveat I spent about 1 hour the day prior looking through her card having an idea what was on it, and what I would include. So reviewing footage on her card, copying it off, editing, posting, 3 hours. It was just a drag-drop / snip-snip deal and some volume adjustments to make sure the wind / creek noise was consistent and not quiet one clip then super loud the next. Goal to minimize the viewer adjusting volume throughout the video. Pet peeve of mine with YouTube vids and even a lot of movies.

    The new laptop is great. On my old one, this all would have taken way longer, waiting for clips to import into the editor, buffering during preview, waiting to export, etc. With my previous setup, I was uninspired to do any editing to say the least... storage was maxed out and I'd need to delete and pull in data to work on, then spend a lot of time just waiting for the computer to catch up.

    This laptop is so snappy, I actually tested layering several different effects (crop, zoom, flip, double overlay with transitions before and after) and it does not even flinch (buffer) at all while previewing in the timeline.

    Nerd specs: It's a Dell Inspiron with 16GB RAM, 1TB SDD, and AMD Ryzen 7 5700U 8 core 16 thread CPU. Good deal too. On sale $999, even got an extra 2 year (total 3) hardware warranty (in home service) for $60.

    I probably could have just went with a small hard drive instead of the 1TB. Working off the 2TB RAID1 file server in the other room from the laptop over the network is just as fast.... but redundancy is cool too

    Pretty certain it's called an Orange-Tip. It seems appropriate, but I'm definitely not an expert.
