This is Only a Test

While I was testing a crispy, Korean-fried chicken breast for a future blog post, the real test here was producing a video in 1080p HD. As I mentioned in an earlier post, we will be transitioning to this new format over the next few months, and to accomplish that, I have to learn Adobe Premiere Pro CS6.

I’ve been using an old, and relatively simple version of iMovie all these years, and so staring at all these new buttons and dials is a little intimidating. I’m hoping most of them don’t actually do anything, and are only there to fill out the interface, but we shall see. In the meantime, thank you for putting up with this test, and as always, enjoy!

Wonderful, a new Premiere user! I could sit here all day and write out tips for you, but for now I'll just leave this here:

Next time you're editing, and you want to make a cut, try pressing Ctrl+K. You'll thank me later.

This test looks tasty.

Huzzah, what great news!

Since you're an iMovie user I would have recommended going to Final Cut Pro X, since it's the natural step up. Or even just an up-to-date version of iMovie.

But you didn't ask me, and it's too late now. So ... Good luck with Adobe Premier!

As long as the videos don't become any less fun, that's all that matters.

Here's one vote for the classic version. I live in a third world country (Italy) and although your test looks nice on screen, it takes forever to load. This isn't watch repair or counterfeit currency engraving; it's cooking. How much resolution does a bowl of soup need? Remember, not everyone is living in the 21st century.

To those people saying "it takes forever to load the video in 1080p" - just change the quality to 360p or whatever suits you.

Thanks for all the feedback! Yes, those that have slow connections can still watch at any size they like!

Been watching and relying on your cheerful, non-exacting, funny, clever and expert advice via All Recipes for years. BTW My husband thanks you. I, too, am not given to "new" things but you got to roll with the times, I guess. So, today I joined pinterest and thought I would let you know that you are my first save! :) AND that your test was successful. Please keep doing what you are doing and enjoy your VaCa! We will be enjoying your shrimp etouffee ...
