This is a video I created last night using YouTube’s in-browser video editor.
- The interface is clean, and mostly intuitive.
- Wide range of basic controls for common editing tasks.
- includes CC licensed clips to use & experiment with.
- includes a large CC licensed music library for use.
- will import pictures from Google+ account, or upload from computer.
- Processing & publishing can take up to 48 hours, depending on how long the video is (and how many clips, transitions, titles, etc., the project is using). This small video took about 6 hours to process & publish.
- Interface is sometimes buggy, particularly with the labeling of clip times (in one click it’s 7 seconds, drag the slider ever-so-slightly and you jump up to 27 seconds).
- You are limited to clips of under 15 minutes in length.
- Little control over audio track.
- Awesome utility for quick & dirty on-the-fly edits
- good go-to when other software isn’t available
This story involves many of the issues we talked about in class, including cyberbullying over social media, victim blaming/shaming, reluctance to report abuse and how social media documented the whole thing. Even Anonymous got involved! These links below will orient you to the issues of the case (in chronological order).
Here are some links to check out:
Powerpoint crashed and I’m not sure if it’s ever coming back. I’ve been looking at the blue spinny Windows thing for about 20 minutes.
We might have notes in class. Or we might just wing it 😉 At any rate, here are two links we’ll be discussing.
