Yes, it’s been a very long time coming, but I’ve finally put together a bit of a ski video from our most recent trip to Morzine.
In my defence, I was waiting for my copy of iMovie ’09 to arrive, which it did with Jason and Susan. It’s an absolute joy to use – a lovely clean, intuitive interface, with lots of quick-editing features. Unfortunately, it’s also full of bugs, the worst one which seems to randomly corrupt your project file. Better yet, Apple, in all their wisdom, have decided that the ability to load and save projects at will is unnecessary – hence, when the video file gets corrupted, there’s no way to go back, except for the extremely painful option of starting the entire video again.
The only way I’ve found around this is to periodically quit iMovie and make another copy of the project file. This saved me countless times during my second attempt! Unfortunately though, by the end, iMovie was playing up so much that I simply had to give up – so the audio editing is not quite what I wanted it to be.
Less ranting, more video!

Yes, I realise that it’s 83MB, and yes, I realise that it’s almost 11 minutes long; but more accurately, it’s 11 very entertaining minutes, and I worked through much frustration to get there. So I hope you like it.
