A few months ago I bought some new [to me] video and audio editing software. I used to make videos of SB campaigns and I figured since I plan on getting back into it I'll probably want to record again. Anyway, I finally got around to messing with the software (Vegas Pro) on my laptop, using my T.V. as a monitor with an HDMI cable connecting the two. Here is a pic of the program running with the default layout:
The larger screen on the T.V. is nice, but the video preview is still kind of small. So I moved some stuff around to make it bigger:
This was better ... but then I realized I could pop the video preview out of the program and at the top of the window is a button that makes it full screen on an external monitor. So I turned on both the laptop screen and the T.V. as dual monitors, put the preview on the T.V. and the program on the laptop screen. Then I opened a bunch of new panels that looked important and all of a sudden I became a big shot producer. 😎
... Actually I have little to no idea what I'm doing. But here's a video of what it looked like:
But I digress. The point of this post was supposed to be: if you want to make videos too, there is a great deal right now over at Humble Bundle. You can get $678 worth of video and audio editing software for just $25!! It's not the same program I'm using, but it's probably better. It'll be available for about 13 days after I post this. But even if you miss it, I'm sure they'll have a similar offer sometime in the not-too-distant future. I used FRAPS to actually record the footage, and to be honest I have no idea how much I paid for that, but it can't have been much because I'm a cheapskate ... which is good because I'm also poor.
