Sunday

Spent all day today and half of yesterday painting trellises for my bougainvilleas. Whew!

Chris M. sent me this Thanksgiving video. It’s well worth watching.

Saturday

I’m sorry that yesterday’s post was late. It was due to another hacking attempt.

Interested in that video? I have the newest version of final Cut Pro, and it does a great job. If you’re interested, here’s a screen shot of what they call the timeline. It has all the clips, the stacked ones make for one scene.

Sorry

Sorry about the late post. Some filthy bottom feeding swine tried to hack my blog again, and my server shut me down.

Wednesday

My movie studio is closed tomorrow. I want all my staff and superstar actors to enjoy Thanksgiving with their families. It’s hard to eat through a face mask though, isn’t it?

Tuesday

I’ll check my email tomorrow morning. If you want a copy with a sketch in it, email me tonight. It’s going to take me a few days to make all the drawings in the books, but I’ll get it done as soon as the books come in. That will be by the end of next week I hope. So I think I can get all the books in the mail by the sometime in the second week of December. I hope.

Hey, guys, has this ever happened to you?

More Computer stuff

I installed OS 11 Big Sur so I could try out Final Cut Pro, latest version. Big Mistake. Photoshop 5 won’t run on it, and 5 does everything I need.  I think I’ll reinstall 10.13 and then put 11.0.1 on an external drive. Meanwhile I’m trying out FCP 10. It doesn’t seem a whole lot better than IMovie. I think my problem with the green screen has to do with bad lighting. So I’m going to try some tricks. I had intended to buy some photographer’s lights and still do. Thanks for the advice in comments. I’ll try to get to them tomorrow.

I’ll also try to get to my email tomorrow. Remember, if you want signed copies email me by Wednesday. I or my secretary (Frau Grace) will get back to you soon. I’ll try my best to take care of business so we beat the Christmas deadline. I don’t know if I can make it on time to Europe. Thank you in advance for understanding.

Sunday

I’m trying to get my old Final Cut Pro 6.0.6 to work on one of my old computers. It works on OSX10.5 but not later. For those of you who use Macs, I’m on 10.13 on both my 2010 IMac and my 2019 IMac. It won’t let me install 10.5 anywhere. I think FCP will improve everything. IMovie isn’t that good. I’m slowly getting better at it, but I have to have something than IMovie. It’s a pain in the butt, and it does such a lousy job. I might just have to shell out that $300 for the new version of FCP.

Remember, If you want me so sign books, email me by Wednesday.

I fixed it

I don’t know why, when I post a video as “Public”,  YouTube changes it to “Private”. It’s happened before. I just have to be more careful. What happened this time is I finished the video just after 5:00 PM and scheduled it to be released at 5:45. So I didn’t double check. From now on I’ll publish the video immediately and check it.

I’ll have to see if I can fix the green screen bleeds. I’ve been using IMovie, and it’s very limited in that regard. I have an old Final Cut Pro on my old laptop. It won’t work on relatively new OS’s. I’ve tried to reinstall OS 10.3 on my older 2011 IMac, but it won’t let me do it. I’m going to see if Final Cut can handle green screens better.
