Oh happy days

You have NO idea how much I'm enjoying these 5 days off.   Only 1 day left but I've really gotten a chance to relax by playing games and watching heaps of stuff.  Finally up to the 3rd season of Fringe.  Very happy about that.  Good show.

So yesterday I reformatted my system, and as you can see its still operational.  The whole thing feels so much more faster and nicer.  Things that were broken before are totally functional now.  I love it.  And speaking of functional, I finally got my mic working with my soundcard.  And you know what that means.  YEP!  Jed and I FINALLY got to play Portal 2 co-op today with voice and recording and everything.  We had an absolute blast.  We're planning to go through the clips and edit and then upload them, but to be honest its going to be fairly hard to edit since all through it we were just being retards and each level is fairly quick to figure out except for maybe a couple we did.

We're planning to compare video clips though as the audio on my end was weird.  His voice sounded a little boomy and slightly echoey, where as mine sounded sharp and high toned.  Probably becuase of our mics but I cant test another since my usb one died.  So I wanna hear what his end sounded like and we'll go from there.  My other dilemma is I cant for the life of me remember what video editor I was using before.  It was brilliant, easy to use, did everything I wanted perfectly.  But I FORGOT to save the shortcut so I could find it later.  I thought it was xilisoft HD video convertor since I recall that being installed.  The program I used looked identical, but it had an editor section which this one doesnt.  I noticed xilisoft has an editor only one but that means using 2 programs.  I dont know what it was and I'm sad because I loved that program.  I'm going to see about giving Corel studio pro X4 a shot since its had awesome reviews and the videos/screenshots looks like it might be simple enough for my thick brain to handle.  We'll see.

A picture for your viewing pleasure.


  1. If you can get a hold of it, Cyberlink Power Director is very easy to use. Also, I am sure none of us would mind if we just got all of the clips with no editing out lol.

  2. I was actually looking at the cyberlink one as well. I read a few reviews and checked some screenshots/compariosns etc. I cant remember why I decided to go with corel instead but there was some reason. My brain usually discards information once I'm done with it lol

  3. Awesome, who knew the computer fix would be so easy. :P

    New videos will be nice to watch. Hopefully the editing goes smoothly

  4. Lol, that's here in Peru :D.

    Looking forward to the videos<3

  5. Congrats on getting your computer working. There's all that apprehension and fear, but it feels so good once it's done.

  6. I have not tried that software, but if you ever do decide to change Cyberlink is very good, though it is simplified to the extreme for ease of access, so if you don't like over simplification it is definitely not for you, but I have no complaints regarding it.

  7. From the sounds of it, you have a lot of video editors. Why didn't you just remove the ones that didn't work as well as the one you were using? Problem the past. ;)
