[06:01:11] <Apsup> Morning!
[06:24:23] <Aria> Hi!
[06:36:14] <Apsup> Up early, or late?
[06:36:28] <Aria> Early!
[06:36:32] <Aria> Around 5
[06:36:48] <Aria> Which I'm quite happy with
[06:37:01] <Apsup> Oh! Good job.
[06:37:22] <Aria> Have I showed you my edit of Star Wars 3?
[06:37:51] <Apsup> No you haven't.
[06:38:17] <Aria> I thought I did. Well good, because then I can show you the good version instead
[06:38:55] <Aria> I made it a few weeks ago in about a day. But then spent more time on it since. The video quality is potato, but I got a bunch of tips on reddit on how to improve it
[06:39:03] <Aria> The video quality I mean
[06:39:13] <Aria> So I'm trying those things now
[06:39:18] <Aria> What are you up to?
[06:40:51] <Apsup> Playing some morning Final Fantsy XIV while having Trauma Center speedrun from last AGDQ on other screen.
[06:48:34] <Apsup> Also, coffee. I need to make coffee.
[06:49:01] <Aria> Oh XIV not XV
[06:49:54] <Aria> I feel like every other week I "buy" XIV, then find out I only bought like a minute of gametime or whatever and go "fuck that game"
[06:51:58] <Bronz|work> Good morning.
[06:56:15] <Apsup> Good morning to you too.
[06:57:57] <Aria> I feel like I need a faster computer for this stuff
[06:58:24] <Aria> When I can afford it, I want a dual Xeon computer
[06:58:41] <Aria> Actually, Dual i7 is probably better
[07:01:48] <Aria> That new Resident Evil looks scary
[07:01:59] <Aria> I saw the Giant Bomb quick look
[07:09:55] <Bronz|work> Your Star Wars edit is like, 40% smaller right?
[07:10:01] <Bronz|work> Shorter runtime, I mean.
[07:10:10] <Aria> Aiming for 50%
[07:10:17] <Aria> Its about a minute over that
[07:20:53] <Aria> I'm muxing two files because they both start and end in A frames and are the same codec, so it should work effortlessly
[07:21:18] <Aria> The program I'm using has a progress bar for loading the one file.
[07:21:21] <Aria> I guess both
[07:22:04] <Aria> The one load was about 5 seconds, the other one is 4m. But in both cases, before it would 'start' the load, it froze for like 10+min
[07:22:13] <Aria> Very annoying.
[08:14:49] <Aria> Premiere is a piece of shit.
[08:15:54] <Bronz|work> =O
[08:16:32] <Aria> The import dialog box doesn't go away
[08:16:46] <Aria> I've been waiting for my video file to import for like an hour at this point
[08:17:35] <Aria> I think I should give up on working in m2ts
[08:35:12] <Aria> I started over. Let's see how this goes.
[08:56:30] <Bronz|work> Hopefully, it goes well?
[08:56:40] <Aria> Nope!
[08:57:43] <Bronz|work> Did tesco come over yet?

[08:58:31] <Aria> No
[09:07:02] <Aria> Okay. Trying again
[09:07:05] <Aria> Read their FAQ
[09:07:12] <Bronz|work> aha! and?
[09:07:36] <Aria> They said with bold letters "Always use file > whatever > whatever when importing media!!"
[09:07:40] <Aria> So I'm trying that
[09:07:49] <Aria> Not sure why the other method is included if it doesn't work
[09:08:02] <Aria> Seems their method doesn't work either, but I'll let it run for a few minutes
[09:08:32] <Aria> If it doesn't work, I'll try converting it to another format.
[09:13:57] <Bronz|work> Btw, did you end up doing the diswhasher?
[09:14:20] <Aria> Yes of course
[09:14:34] <Bronz|work> Coolio.
[09:36:58] <Apsup> I wonder what the people at Arksys were thinking when making the story mode for the newest Blazblue.
[09:37:41] <Apsup> It's (apparently) over ten hours long, mostly non interactive visual novel thing. And while it's divided in episodes, it barely tells you when new episode starts.
[09:38:18] <Apsup> There is no sensible "Hey, here's a good break point if you want to take a break and come back later" messages. When you start it, it just keeps going and going until you manually save and quit.
[09:53:42] <Aria> No that sounds about right.
[09:53:56] <Aria> (Yes that sucks)
[09:55:05] <Aria> Also I was about to say the video import still wasn't done, but as I was writing that it ticked forward once
[09:55:23] <Aria> So maybe it'll still get somewhere?
[10:05:16] <Bronz|work> Hmm...
[10:05:20] <Bronz|work> How about now?
[10:05:23] <Bronz|work> It's been 10 minutes
[10:05:44] <Aria> Its ticked forward twice since then
[10:05:48] <Aria> Still not 'working'
[10:06:17] <Aria> Also all the audio is gone, and possibly also all the video past the first cut (about 2 or 3 seconds in)
[10:06:23] <Aria> But I can't confirm the video thing
[10:06:34] <Bronz|work> Hrrmmm...
[10:06:35] <Aria> Audio is definitely gone, it told me in a pop up
[10:06:47] <Aria> But I figured I can just use the old audio so its fine
[10:07:20] <Aria> It looks like all my cuts are in tact. The timeline loaded
[10:07:34] <Aria> But I can't play anythinig yet, as it isn't done--- um.. allowing me to play
[10:23:37] <Aria> I don't think this is going to work...
[10:34:10] <Bronz|work> Are you going to have to re-cut your movie?
[10:34:50] <Aria> No, I'll find a work around.
[10:54:32] <Aria> OK I don't think this is going to work. My computer is dying, and its still not ready to play the video
[11:01:04] <Bronz|work> =(
[11:01:15] <Bronz|work> Did we get food in the house, though?
[11:04:03] <Aria> Yes, tesco man came by earlier
[11:04:36] <Aria> Alright, you know what? Fuck this
[11:04:55] <Aria> I'm gonna find a work around.
[11:06:02] <Bronz|work> Different video editor?
[11:06:23] <Aria> Can't import my timeline into a different editor
[11:06:27] <Aria> Although that would be nice
[11:06:30] <Bronz|work> I bet if you ask #blender "I can't import these files, they're too big, my project is in premiere!" they'll be "oh don't worry ^_~
[11:06:40] <Aria> ...Shit
[11:06:45] <Aria> That's the real solution isn't it
[11:07:32] <Aria> They'll write a premiere project importer for blender, and of course blender being blender, won't have any problems with any files
[11:09:23] <Bronz|work> And then you can be all "... also, with your skill, and having an importer, surely you guys can make an exporter too!"
[11:09:28] <Bronz|work> And then hey presto! =P
[11:09:47] <Aria> I mean, it already expo-- oh you mean back to premiere?
[11:10:01] <Bronz|work> Also, I bet you say "Oh, how do I replace this source file" and they're all "Just use replace-src --time=x"
[11:10:04] <Aria> Sacrilege
[11:10:33] <Bronz|work> Where time is the number of a-frames, of course.
[11:11:08] <Bronz|work> Not sure if that is the real answer, but it sure is an answer.
[11:24:09] <Aria> Alright, so what I'm doing now is I've added black to the start, and am rendering it out in a, hopefully more Premiere friendly format
[11:26:06] <Aria> ETA about an hour, which I would say unreasonable, but given that I've been trying to import the video for at the very very least two hours, I would say this is the better option
[12:28:53] <Bronz|work> Jarno is pushing for an agile workflow here.
[12:31:11] <Aria> Guy on my podcast was pushing for Scrum
[12:31:57] <Bronz|work> Scrum is part of Agile, right
[12:39:42] <Apsup> Yes. As far as I know, Scrum is more specific set of procedures where agile is more general idea of an approach.

[13:42:47] <Aria> I'm very confused why this isn't working.
[13:43:09] <Bronz|work> ?
[13:43:49] <Apsup> Is it not working at all, or is it just taking a long time, which apparently making videos does.
[13:45:05] <Apsup> Are you still making a video?
[13:45:06] <Apsup> Even.
[13:45:14] <Aria> I am still making a video
[13:45:19] <Aria> People say editing takes a long time
[13:45:33] <Aria> But I'm just really good at editing, so editing has never taken long for me
[13:45:54] <Apsup> Pretty sure rendering takes a long time too. Long boring time, as that's something computer does while you sit on your ass and wait.
[13:46:00] <Aria> I would always be shocked by how slow everyone else were when I went to editing school, even the teachers
[13:46:24] <Aria> Yes, rendering also takes a long time. I have a two 980ti's so it's relatively fast
[13:46:36] <Aria> But those are not the issues I'm having
[13:47:12] <Aria> I was having issues importing footage earlier.
[13:47:37] <Aria> But that shouldn't be a problem anymore I think
[13:48:06] <Aria> But now I'm having weird behaviour from Premiere
[13:49:00] <Aria> Also I made a mistake and removed every audio track but Italian. I meant to remove every audio track but English...
[13:55:32] <Bronz|work> ... =P
[14:23:50] <Aria> I think this thing is actively working against me!
[14:24:21] <Aria> I did a test. I hit "replace footage" and choose a different encode of the same file , the timings got all messed up as you might expect (though it shouldn't have, but whatever, differnet encode)
[14:24:35] <Aria> Then I did it again choosing the same exact file and they got messed up differently!
[14:26:48] <Bronz|work> ...
[14:29:47] <Bronz|work> Delete your computer!
[14:31:05] <Aria> Okay, I finally did it
[14:31:11] <Aria> I managed to get my new video in all synced up
[14:31:18] <Aria> Now I just need to figure out the audio situation...
[15:25:35] <Aria> I did it...
[15:25:36] <Aria> Finally
[15:25:40] <Aria> It all works now
[15:25:44] <Aria> Playback works
[15:25:49] <Aria> Audio is in English
[15:25:55] <Aria> Quality does not look like potato
[15:26:00] <Aria> Finally I can start editing
[15:26:01] <Bronz|work> Woo!
[15:26:03] <Aria> Holy shit that took all day
[15:26:12] <Bronz|work> Oh shit, it's almost time to go home.
[15:26:21] <Aria> I was determined to get this done today, but given that I only start 4m before my time limit, I think maybe I'll postpone the rest
[15:28:23] <Bronz|work> I mean, it's not like you didn't work hard today...
