@firstdogonmoon Idea for tomorrow’s cartoon: Following Pauline Hanson naked, what next in politics?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

Dear Final Cut Express, is there any particular reason you discarded my last hour of editing, or was it just to spite me?

@markc @JulzM Hey look! I said PRECISELY what that was linking to, so what did you expect? You CHOSE to click!

via Twitter Web Client

Pauline Hanson naked. Yes, that’s what I said. http://bit.ly/19afEx H http://bit.ly/19afEx Hat-tip @willemrt.

I note that the Dunning-Kruger Effect is in full force this morning.

@SnarkyPlatypus De guerre chimique résout de nombreux problèmes quotidiens. Il suffit de demander les Kurdes.

Thunderstorms encourage copious copulation, even amongst the lesser orders.

@SnarkyPlatypus Les fourmis, comme nous tous, ne sont que la recherche de quelque part au chaud et au sec pour se reproduire.

@andrewdotnich William Shatner with bosoms? I thought the opening sequence to “Stilgherrian Live” was… harmless. http://bit.ly/14upXc

@SnarkyPlatypus Allo. Je tiens à étrangler tout le monde impliqué dans le développement de “normes” pour l’encodage de la vidéo numérique.

@Darcy1968 @andrewdotnich Good morning. I am not responsible for any “horrifying mental images”, let me make that clear.

I think I am now converting something… to something… in some format… maybe. I’ll leave it be. Thanks for the help, folks. [exit]

@eddit0r @ParisSite Oddly, export from FCE in HD then re-sizing in Quicktime Pro gets me closer, 320x240 with right aspect is thick borders.

via Twitter Web Client

@ParisSite I won’t be going to MediaCoder ‘cos I’ll be buggered if I’m installing Wine for Os X to run it. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DavidParis

@eddit0r Yes, Handbrake 0.93 and a .mov file.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to eddit0r

@eddit0r Confused. FCE exports Quicktime. Handbrake does not import the Quicktime. Why am I doing this on Saturday night?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to eddit0r

@eddit0r Thank you for your Handbrake advice. I think you just saved the lives of several small, furry but innocent animals.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to eddit0r

@eddit0r Oh hang on, are you suggesting export in full HD, and then use Handbrake to convert to the smaller size to send off?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to eddit0r

@eddit0r No, this isn’t a job for Handbrake, I think. It’s a sequence in Final Cut Express that I’m exporting therefrom.

@wraptinweb Thank you for the fine music at http://tinyurl.com/2g9n2k and yes, I’ll find some way to incorporate that into my world.

@yeebok No, this isn’t about 4:3 vs 16:9, my shout was about the individual pixels not being square, but rectangular, in some formats.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to yeebok

RT @ikostar: Not only are they not square, each one is a tiny HAL-like eye, saying “I’m sorry, I can’t allow you to do that @stilgherrian”.

@kcarruthers I’m at home. I’ve edited a video in 1080i HD. I want to export a low-res copy to send for approvals. I ask little.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

FFS! IN WHAT SORT OF INSANE PERVERTED UNIVERSE DOES ANYONE HAVE PIXELS WHICH ARE NOT SQUARE?

via Twitter Web Client

RT @halans: LaserPortraits, has lasers!!!!!!!!!! http://is.gd/4NCF [Yes! It does! Lasers make EVERYTHING moar awesomerer!]

@b3rn It’s just so frustrating that I can edit the damn video as a no-brainer, but then encoding it is 3 billion hours of trial and error.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to b3rn

@b3rn Oiu, http://bit.ly/dFO7W looks good for video encoding tips. But 15 years down the track we shouldn’t have to fiddle so much.

@bb600 I am not very good at things that go into ovens. I am much better with a wok. Baking is… too fuckin’ complicated.

And, yes, the Sexy People blog WILL change my life! http://bit.ly/10XMH3 Thank you, @mpesce, for showing me these awesome portraits!

@BernardKeane But you forget, Sir, the Internet is somehow more evil than other forms of communication. Somehow. IT MUST BE STOPPED!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BernardKeane

There’s something inherently evil about encoding video. It just does not behave itself. It is a blacker art than, say, cooking sponge cakes.

@GreenJ heads-up re the Whirlpool / ACMA link removal story. ACMA may well come for Crikey next. http://bit.ly/KE8Hy

@mrsnickhodge @Nickhodge A lovely afternoon, Good People. And now, back to some gentle video editing! :)

Dear Client, when I email “Please suggest a meeting time for next week”, don’t just reply “Yes, we should catch up”. Around the loop again.

@facibus @SnarkyPlatypus Maybe a .vs.avril rematch soon? It was fun! Tho perhaps too much about breastfeeding and parasites.
