I’ve got three words to start this post – Filmora’s got Jokes.
This is me VENTING and RANTING!! I suggest you grab some coffee/Green tea, pen and paper because this is education before you learn it the hard way.
Inserts -Tiffany Haddish’s voice” – This is what ha- happened. I am so new to the vlogging and YouTube channel content creation and trust me as a beginner, its hard especially with the video editing among other things. Content creation is not hard at all unless you don’t know what your goal for each video is. The editing though is a PAIN IN THE BUTT, at least for me. Am super sure everyone has their own story to tell in this department. In the past, I’ve been using movie maker editing software which is super simple and I found it a little bit too basic, so I was encouraged – indirectly by Maxine Wabosha to try out filmora video editing software. There are two versions, there are a free trial download and a buy download section. Of course, I love free things, well, who doesn’t, so my automatic reaction drove me to the free trial tab. Had my video ready for editing, so excited to use this new software. This is where things started going south. As I was exporting my edited video, not sure why filmora decided that this information is not important for all of us who chose to use the free trial download, but if you are keen to even before the exporting finishes, you’ll notice that in your edited video, there is this HUGE WATERMARK of Filmora in the middle of your video. Who does that?? TF. I was so frustrated, I was on the verge of crying, I literary didn’t know what to do for at least 10 mins. I was staring up my computer whispering WFT! WFT! WTF! Thank God for my instinct for research. Without wasting time, Google is always my friend, it comes through 99% of the time. “How to remove watermark from Filmora without buying the download?” I am one of those people who type long questions on google. I wasn’t ready to part with Ksh 7,000 to buy the download version, even if it was a one-off payment – so they say. Google -” My BFF” directed me to this guy on YouTube Called “Alex Alton” and he directed me – and thousands of other people on how to remove that DAMN watermark for FREE. Yup, you heard right. Watch it here if you are an intern to the YouTube world like myself. It worked, and my smile is halfway there, trust me it feels so good to save that 7Gs.
Filmora, who’s laughing now?
Now, this video is here without the watermark, but however much I tried to put my cell phone to work in low light, well, I wouldn’t like to believe so, but this was the best it could do. Mark you, without any studio lighting, but just with the help of the kitchen bulb, this could have been “LIT” literary. I get what other You Tuber’s say about first use the equipment/s you have before fully investing in expensive gear, well, this is exactly what I did. I used what I had/ still have. I have, however, learned that I surely do need to urgently invest in lighting equipment as well as a good camera as per my budget. Please don’t kill my vibe, however, corrections are welcome with arms wide open. 🙂
I am officially done with my venting and rant at least for now!
