“You can have results or excuses. Not both”
I admit – when I said “yes, I’ll do it” to the project that I mentioned in the video blog, I heard myself saying, “Ann, think about what you just said: you only have three days before the presentation, your director said she’ll come back in the afternoon to see your work, you are not sure if the voice over recording that you did will be converted smoothly, and this will be the first time you will be doing an editing project that has voice over and sound!”
What a bad case of promising something that I have never done before (kids, don’t try this at home and anywhere).
But I was determined to deliver the best result. I somehow knew that I could do it. Well, even if not, I believe I will remember the lessons from the experience.
What happened next also surprised me: my colleague showed me an online audio converter. My files were converted smoothly. I was able to put together the voice over file, images, and text to the editing project without a glitch. I finished the project in a day, just in time when our director arrived to see it.
I use ProShow Producer 4.5 for my editing projects. I also used Online-Convert.com for audio conversion.
Pardon the dog barking on the background. I was busy talking about what happened. 🙂
