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.

#tbt to our last sunset in Thailand. I miss that magic island and all my loves from TTC. A far cry from a rainy day in Midtown Manhattan. . . Suns set, seasons change. This has been a year of transformations so far, and there's still more to come. . . Don't be afraid of change. It's our only constant. It's one of our few lifelong companions, alone with your heartbeat and your breath. You can fight it or you can embrace it ~ one leaks energy and one invites you to leave behind what isn't working. . . How have you reached towards change this year? . . . #kohphagan #progressnotperfection #changeisgood #growthmindset #anothergrowthopportunity #washyourface #thailandyoga #lunayoga #lunaalignmentyoga #lunaalignmentyogattc #ttc #yogawarrior #yogateacher

Wise words from my teacher: ・・・ For years I saw yoga as the goal, sacrificing myself on its alter. I now see yoga as magnificent tool, or actually a box of tools, aimed to help us live life in its full potential: health on all levels and acceptance on all levels, so we can experience the freedom and joy within us. ❤️ -Tal . . . #Repost @luna_alignment_yoga . . . . . . . . . . #alignmentyogattc #lunaalignmentyoga #alignment #alignmentyoga #yogateacher #yoga #yogateachertraining #yogateacherlife #yogateachertrainingthailand #yogateachertrainingcourse #innerstate #yogastudents #ytt200 #wellbeing #thailandyoga #yogathailand #kohphanganyoga #yogakohphangan #pranayamagarden #instayoga #yogateachertrainings #yogateachertrainingkohphangan
Back from a weekend in the woods by myself, feeling a sense of freedom and accomplishment. . . It's so easy in our lives to focus on the daily challenges. The lists of tasks, the unanswered texts, the emails and "shoulds". Knowing I had 30 hours that was more about the journey than the destination gave me the freedom to explore. To enjoy. To play. To just BE. . . What gives you a sense of freedom? Have you set aside some time this weekend/coming week to just BE? How will you use it? . . #gooutside #befree #outdoors #donttellmewhaticantdo #heds #hiking #camping #womenwhocamp #wildwoman #wildchild #free #bornfree #liveinthewild #livefree
Don't let Monday twist you up. . . So much about our daily lives is a matter of perspective. "Monday" does not have to be a negative! A new week is a new opportunity to be better, stronger, more resilient, and to have a greater impact on your world. . . Choose your path, don't let your let your reactiveness choose it for you. . . #getsome #alignmentyoga #yogawisdom #monday #seatedtwist #positivity #motivatedmonday
