The Realization

I'm a filmmaker and I'm currently super excited about a project I've been working on. It's little wonder, then, that I woke up this morning with the realization that YouTube has a 2GB file size limit.

That's a problem because my last Sonlight video was a minute and a half and almost two gigs. How in the world was I going to fit my ten minute video on YouTube?

I confirmed when I got to work: 7.63GB.

Hmm... well, there goes 60+ hours of computer rendering time out the window.

Whether it's burned dinner, forgotten laundry in the washer, muddy tracks on the carpet, child regression or some other annoying aspect of life that has you starting over, hang in there. It's Monday.

Ugh, that really sucks. I'm sorry you have to start over or figure something else out. Just editing and uploading videos of mine for family annoys me, I really can't imagine the work it takes doing it the way you do for Sonlight!

Ariana, as a film major I learned a lot about the frustrating side of filmmaking. <smile> Thankfully, it looks like I found a solution--which surprised me--and I won't need to have my computer plug away for another 80 hours. Yay!
