Stayed up to 4 a.m. last night doing things like hanging the Roadtrip photo show, remaking unicycle animations to be higher, experimenting with compression, traipsing about in Second Life looking for/at things. At one point in hanging the show two men showed up and I think hit me with something as I went down about ten feet and kept disappearing. I sighed heavily and relogged.
The exhibit is very nice. I need to make a catalog.
I'd been backing and forthing on compression incrementally as after several months of just putting my fingers in my ears and not working on the audio (the soundtrack is fine in the edit timeline) it demanded attention the other night (that is, it raised itself in my consciousness enough so I could no longer ignore it). It's not making the sountrack per se just the squishificationing of the movie file to spork it into tubular form. I knew I wouldn't like* addressing the issue as I hate things that are occult - I was correct. I spent hours between Thursday and today trying endless combinations of file types/sizes/compression/etc. on an infernal seesaw between picture/audio quality.
Nothing was right, I felt. If I did make something that was okish it discombobulated itself on teh cheesy youtube.
Then I decided that I just didn't have what I needed, so downloaded QTPro and sporked it into action, which resulted in a satisfactory 800x600 60mb Mutants movie. It's not too Quick, however it seems, so far, cross my fingers, to be good.
Something got into me so I made fish with brown rice, mango-peach salsa, cooked vegetables and fresh spinach. Actual real-type food ===:O
*avoided it - bad me.
