So today, on September 7, 2021, I finally got to uploading my first YouTube video!
It was a relieving experience to finally get my first video uploaded, because I was pretty worried that it wouldn’t turn out the way that I wanted to. However, I feel like it will always have rough beginnings, and I figured I’d do what I could to make the content as short as possible (due to low attention span meta) and straight to the point.
For next steps, I feel like I didn’t really have to do everything in one take (I took many takes, in fact), but there were still times when I would stutter or say something that I didn’t mean to say. I already recorded the screen and it was lined up to my audio/video, so I felt like it was too much of a hassle to edit it out. Next time, I will probably edit the audio/video first, and then fill in the content after – definitely felt like a rookie mistake.
I did feel like the editing software (Camtasia, yes I paid for it) was relatively easy and effective to use. However, I do have a big gripe about it — it does not support Nvidia Broadcast for some reason. I’m not sure if it’ll be a make or break kind of deal, but it does suck that I don’t get extra video sharpening / background blurring because Camtasia refuses to support it.
Overall, I’m excited. It definitely feels like I got some progression in (also got a blog post out on the same day) and am eager to keep it going and see what I can come out with.
