Slideshow #1

Just published at the Missourian - 1:08 p.m. - July 18, 2008.

This is the result of a long and painful day trying to figure out Avid Express Pro, a video editing program. The learning curve for that program is extremely steep. Some may think Photoshop or InDesign is difficult to learn, but Avid takes the cake. If the ease of use of Soundsides Plus is like building a wooden box, Avid is like constructing the Eiffel Tower.

As you have noticed, the project above isn't a video project. I was working with a fellow reporter/photojournalism student, Angie, and at the end of 5.5 hours of trying to get something halfway decent, we scrapped it. We left frustrated with Avid and without a project, but did have a learning experience in both video editing and shooting.

The best thing about my Treasure Hunters Roadshow experience:
