I’ve always thought that Garbage’s song Trip My Wire would make a fantastic Terminator fan video. I have all these great ideas in my head, mostly of Sarah kicking ass. I’ve suggested this to other TSCC fans who have some video editing talent, but no one has taken the project on, so I’m taking the bull by the horns and I’m trying it myself. I’ve never done any video editing aside from creating help videos for software with Adobe’s Captivate. I hate Adobe. But I digress.
So far, it’s been a bumpy road. First, I tried looking for screen capture software so I could just grab clips from my video library at Amazon On Demand (I have a subscription for season 2). That was a fail.
Then, I figured I should download the season and work with those files. Well it took a day or so to get the complete season and then I realized I can’t use avi with iMovie. I’m definitely not spending money on a video editing program if I’m just going to dink around here and there, so the next step was to find a way to convert avi into a format iMovie can use. After a bit of searching, I found a program called PunyVid that worked well enough. I got the video imported into iMovie and now I have to learn how to use that program. But I’m making progress.
