Last night, I started studying on more advanced video editing software.
To make a long story short, my brain practically melted in my head as I watched a handful of tutorials on the basics of 2D animation. It’s mostly due to the different program’s interface, and layout, and also me not knowing what to do.
There were times where the tutorial I found moved quickly, and I was unable to follow, making me have to rewind and replay the video a couple of times. I also had to repeat the starting process a couple of times because I did not know what in the world I was doing.
By the way, I am studying Blender – a free to use 3D animation and video editing software.
One of my issues with the education system is that we are forced to learn something which we do not feel we need.
However, looking back on it now, that is the logic of a narrow-minded fool of a youth who failed to see the bigger picture.
Take mathematics, like algebra. In accounting, people see that you only need the basic arithmetic functions of adding, subtracting, and the occasional multiplication and division. Who needs to know algebra, right?
The most basic thing we know may be a new and unknown thing for others.
You never know what others do not know unless you start talking about it.
Just the other month, my wife’s younger brother had difficulty with his laptop’s hard disk. It kept saying “disk device not found”. A quick google search told me that the connectors for the disk and the board might be at fault. I told him that he need to check the connections, probably pop the laptop open and push in the connecting ribbons to make sure that nothing was knocked loose.
