In lieu of actual interesting content, I wanted to share this just, uh… because. The job I was on today is one that I could basically come up with a slightly ridiculous idea and run with it. So I cut a spot with a grid overlay, some other generated grid lines moving around (thanks Simon!) multiple resized/retimed clips filling up the grid, piles of sfx, all comped over a BG clip.
Not gonna win any awards, not terribly complicated in the grand scheme of things, and it may never see the light of day… but it was fun. What made it even more fun was the fact that I could assemble the giant pile of stuff below, and play and edit it in real time, full resolution, unrendered.
Could I have have done this in another NLE? Sure. The source was SD, so not really surprising, but it just made me smile doing this in X, so I thought I’d write this. Better than nothing right? 🙂
If it made you happy and smile that is all that counts.
Yep. I just kept piling things up, adding fx, moves, compositing stuff, hitting play and waiting for it to choke. It didn’t. I can think of worse things to do for a living. 🙂
