After Effects 📹
This week I’ve learned the very basics of using Adobe After Effects to create videos. I have never been any good at this (not I am now). I have always used Apple’s iMovie. It’s easy enough and gets the job done for simple things.
This time, however, I wanted more control over the generated file. My goal was to create videos for Instagram and YouTube for our podcast Korean Tapas. Each platform has its own aspect ratio/size requirements and iMovie fells short to the task.
I wanted to create 2 templates that would allow me to simply drop new audio clips but maintain the graphics, images, etc.
It’s not professional level but now I can very quickly generate both videos from the starting template. Mission accomplished ✅
Have you ever had to edit / create a video?
Next trip? ✈️
This week I was thinking about a potential next trip this year. It has been long, very long. Since the pandemic started. The farthest I’ve gone is around 70km away from Barcelona. Could be worse, I know. Still, a far cry from the epic trips I used to take every year before COVID 😷
This year? Nothing set on stone just yet but I would love to visit Japan 🇯🇵 (for a third time). Should the restrictions be less… strict 🥺
Re-visiting some places is not a concern, I even welcome it. It has been 8 years since my last visit. Anything is a good plan when we’re talking about Japan 😌
🌸 Spring? out of the question, would’ve been amazing. I’m told there’s a quarantine in place as you land. Not an option 🙅♂️
☀️ Summer? Don’t even think about it. Been there, done that. It’s horribly hot and humid. No, thank you 🥵
🍁 I am aiming for October, cooler temperatures, and hopefully full of autumn colors. We’re months away so this is just daydreaming for now. Fingers crossed 🤞
Any travel plans for you this year?
