As a video editor, you really have four options at the moment to choose from: Premiere Pro – Final Cut Pro – Sony Vegas Pro – and Avid Media Composer. Why only four? The short answer is that the others have a lack of sufficient user base.

Away from the Kardashians. Continue reading “Of interesting wants and relevant needs”
Alex Jones is an excellent example of this. He is of course 95% clown and 5% journalist, and yet, I have a feeling that the majority of his followers take his stuff all too seriously… His topics are often serious, but his spin on them is… merely entertaining.

Youtube is very scarce with words. “Bad actors” are mentioned as a reason to act. In short, if you’re unable to maintain a relatively high retention time, your channel will not be eligible for the partner program, to monetize your videos.
