This winter I decided to buy a box of those blue nitrile gloves. Not to service my car or do anything glamorous, but to do dishes with! (I do a lot of dishes it seems lol) Did you know you can operate a phone (including the fingerprint sensor) through these with no issues? I was genuinely surprised. :-)
So after some testing it's still weird. Using 4K-60fps video from my phone renders great out of #kdenlive. But using the 1080p-60fps footage does not. So I guess it's either change my default video settings on the phone to shoot 4k or transcode 1080p videos slightly if I'm going to use them in kdenlive. Hmm.
Playing with #kdenlive. Everything is working great except it renders solid white video (audio's fine). Tried multiple output formats. Preview is fine. Must be doing something dumb on my end. I did apply white balance correction to the clips. Will try just rendering uncorrected plain clips to see.
Yah.. he thinks he's all that. At home he's all about the lazy cuddles and jerkiness sometimes too. Lol.
I dare not speak ill of cats. I used to have 4 years ago. We were thinking about getting one to keep him company. Just scared he might squish it. Being dainty ain't one of his strong suits. :-)
Related to something I posted a week ago about computer generated faces. Here's a quick video explaining the sort of amazing advances made in this sort of thing. I find myself in awe seeing technological advances like this. But I can also understand people seeing this and feeling pessimism and fear of the future too.
Finally got caught up on #wandavision today. I'm not disappointed. But it required some grit to stick it through the first few to get here. Such is our (my) expectation of immediate satisfaction with all things these days. :-\ BTW - we are loving #snowpiercer on Netflix too. No waiting there if I'm honest.
Saw this on Reddit. A site you can use if you need people's faces for marketing etc. without having to get consent. They're all computer generated (you get a new face everytime you refresh). I find it weird that you're flipping through people that don't exist and never have. Great idea but feels a little unsettling and weird.
Both Bertie and I are getting up there in age so we both reserve the right to nap this afternoon.
I'm guilty on all counts. Especially the standing and watching tv thing. Lol
