Using Blender to Edit Videos

Sometimes applications have capabilities that go beyond their primary use. Our contributing video editor found this excellent video tutorial on editing videos in Blender, an app that’s primarily used for creating animated films.

The Video Screening Room

Blender is well-known for its 3D animation features, but did you know it also contains a very fine video editor? This explanatory screencast shares a lot of tips and tricks. I especially enjoyed when the screencaster made mistakes and then explained them. That can add a lot of value to a screencast. In fact, I’d pay good money for mistakes.

Make sure you subscribe to the YouTube channels of the videos you value. Leave a supportive comment, too. If you prefer being quiet on such things, imagine a world where everyone were quiet. Then send me a summary of what you hear.
