So I spent, like, hours the other week downloading and discarding software programs and updating codecs, etc. to figure out how to work with matroska files in avisynth. And yay! I succeeded.
Only today, I get hold of another matroska file, used the exact same avs script I used for the other matroska file (replacing the filepath/filename, of course), and it tells me it doesn't recognize the file type. Two different players gave me the exact same encoding info for both files. Avisynth can read one and not the other.
It's getting to be that time of year where it's cold enough in my room that it kind of hurts to type.
So, okay, update:
Weir vid -- I'd say three more good days of work and the rough draft will be finished. No idea when I'm fitting those three days in. Hopefully one of them will be tomorrow. Whatever happens, this vid will be done in time for the escapadecon
vid submission deadline.
In terms of fic, I've finally worked out the kinks in my SGA/Harry Potter crossover. John/Rodney. EPIC. I'm pretending I'm actually going to finish this one, unlike the other 100+kb (plain text) of unposted WIP's sitting on my harddrive. Shut up, it could happen.
I'm working on a flashfic for SGA based on an idea permetaform
gave me. That I hopefully will finish and post this weekend. Rodney/Ronon. Knifeplay.
Maybe this Christmas I'll actually try to write that SGA Christmas crackfic I thought up last year. You know, where Caldwell is Santa and Weir is Mme. Claus with a deep red ermine coat and a riding crop and John and Rodney are elves (with nimble, nimble fingers), and Ronon and Teyla are travelling Inuits and they have to protect
The North Pole from the
Or that other Christmas not-really-crack fic where Rodney builds John a toy DeLorean.
Or maybe I should just write that one Weir/Ronon where Weir gets mindraped by a hivequeen.
Tho realistically, I probably won't have time to do anything but finish my vid. But my vid will be AWESOME, GODDAMNIT. It had better be. I spent, like, three quarters of a year on it.
If it ends up sucking? I'm blaming my beta's, throwing at tantrum and leaving fandom.
Or, you know, option 2. Vidding Fat Lee Adama to Christina Aguilera's "Beautiful" as therapy.
Yes ... therapy....
