Something New #48 – Again!?!

Yes.  Again.

Your imagination is likely better than the actual event; but to protect the innocent, we’ll stick with the graphic.

Something New #49 – Kdenlive

Now for something we can actually talk about.  I was drafted at work to bring together the “for pay” job and the “not so much pay” job: my work with Sahana and film production.  In the process of producing a few marketing videos (more on that later) I needed a good linux video editing software ~ we only have linux machines at work, I just converted my home machine to Ubuntu, and my laptop just doesn’t have the kojones for editing.

After a sojourn into Cinelerra and 5 hours of shooting I discovered that the ‘most popular’ linux video editing tool couldn’t support the codex that came out of the camera I was using.  Another 5 hours of troubleshooting later I found, on a random forum review of the camera itself, that Kdenlive supported it… but how, in all those other googles, I didn’t find Kdenlive I couldn’t tell you.  It’s great!  At least for what I need it to do, which isn’t super technical.  I had a few hurdles with the user interface; for example, I’m used to being able to trip my clips as I go but I can’t for the life of me figure out how to do that.  There’s better documentation than any of the other free linux editors I found, which is nice.  I’d say if you were looking for a free linux video editing solution you should at least keep this on your short demo list.

Little sister, all grown up. How blessed am I to have been a part of your perfect day. To get to share in your joy, and thereby multiply it with everyone else who came to celebrate. . Stunning 📸 by @stephanie.mccauley . 20 years ago our parents met. But I think our 5 siblings are the ones who really made out on this deal. . . #love #positiveemotionproject #bride #bridesmaid #fallwedding #bonussister #littlesister #perfectday #sisters
We're so good at making relationships complicated- with others and with ourselves! 🤦‍♀️ But when I peel away the layers of pain, defensiveness, and unhelpful patterns I'm left with 3 truths: 1️⃣ We're all human (I think👽) 2️⃣ We all have something to contribute. Unique combinations of skills and interests. Our passions and what we care about. They lead us to contributions that no one can make. And your world needs to what YOU can bring into it. 3️⃣ We all make mistakes - you. Me. Your boss. Your parents. Your kids. @msrachelhollis & @tonyrobbins . everybody. When you accept that you can forgive yourself and others for their human-ness. No one comes out perfect. We're all a work in progress. If you can accept this you can stop expecting perfection from yourself and others. Do these 3 ring true for you? Which of them do you struggle to accept and live? #growandchange #growthmindset #coaching #coachmentality #selfdevelopment #human #humanrace #acceptance #acceptyourself #weallmakemistakes
