    Question - I see that you use bits of music from DJ Snake - how do you get permission to use the music? Do you ask for permission?

  • Eddi Taru

    Just why does everyone makes the music 4 times louder than voice. This is so frustrating having adjusted volume back and forth.

    I listen and watch closely, because I really want to improve and do my editing (then filming) much better then today. I am learning on my own, by my own experience and mistakes, on a low budget, but it is so fun to grow :)

So much was happening but after some minutes the massive fight to save the world and what not just got really boring 😂

    I use iMovie for my videos.... and to be honest my videos are strictly for memory, I don't spend a ridiculous amount of time editing them or anything cuz honestly just can't be bothered. I'm in medical school and quite busy.
    Any cheap better editing programs out there I can get? A step above iMovie, but nothing too complicated or pricey. Any recs?
