… a fun and busy day and I’m back to learning Adobe Premier Pro … like Photoshop, until you learn it, it is complex and intimidating. I did have my first tiny success tonight and produced my first video from some GoPro clips I took on a flight last year. The video starts just as I begin to accelerate for takeoff on Runway 21 at Sedona and ends with a landing on Runway 3  around sunset. The transitions need improvement and the audio transition could be better, but the overall quality is far superior to anything I produced in Power Point and the audio quality is absolutely terrific.
