Today, I’m going on a tour of my editing den, and the process I go through to take footage of stuff and turn it into a final video for you all. So come along on this behind the scenes adventure! Video Ingest The first step in my editing workflow is ingest. I have footage from a variety of devices and SD cards, and I need to get it onto a reliable storage as quickly as possible.
Today I got my first upgrade to the studio setup: A new microphone! I chose a Rode Videomic Go II, which has USB-C and 3.5mm outputs, and they have a USB-C to Lightning cable available to connect to my phone. Since I use my iPhone for filming (often my older iPhone SE), this was important to me, but the ability to connect digitally to my desktop for recording screen capture with high quality audio was also important, so I didn’t want to get the smaller mics that clip directly on to the phone’s lightning port.
When I reached 100 subscribers, I was very excited and posted about it here. But now, I’ve crossed 1000. After reaching 100, I was excited for the next hundred, but it came by so fast that within a few weeks I blew by 200,300,400… and was at 1000. The next goal becomes not a doubling, but the next order of magnitude. Exponential growth. I don’t expect to reach 100k (two more orders of magnitude), but maybe I’ll eventually reach the next order of magnitude.
As of today, my Youtube Channel has reached 100 subscribers! It’s really exciting to me, slowly starting to build a brand and produce content that I enjoy. I’ve enjoyed documenting my hobbies and projects on this website for almost a year now, and making videos is a fun way for me to expand that. Thank you to everyone who’s enjoyed and commented on my content so far, it’s great to see that others are enjoying it too.
I’ve decided to start Twitch streaming my evening gaming sessions. I usually spend a small amount of my evening playing games anyway, so broadcasting it to the world isn’t a big change to my routine, and hopefully I can improve my content creation skills at the same time. I play almost exclusively single-player games, particularly first person shooter, puzzle, and simulation games. I’m slowly building up my streaming stup and it should help with video creation too, which is something I’m excited about.
