The first installment of episode 4 is getting even closer to completion. I don't know the technical names for these things, but in my own little vodcasting vocabulary the status of the next show is this: Rough cuts are done. Semi-smooth cuts are done. Which means that all that remains are Transitions/Special Effects, and Final Smoothing of audio and visual. After all of that comes final watch-through (you know, making sure there are no spelling mistakes, etc), then video compression, then another round of watch-throughs (compression often adds glitches, so I often end up compressing the same file to the same size more than once to eliminate these problems.), then uploads, and posting the show. It seems like a lot now that I'm writing it all down, but I find that getting through the cutting feels like its the most time consuming part. So, I'm excited. And if you watch Knitterati I hope you're excited too, because the end is in sight!
