... according to Andrew Huang:
Thanks for sharing!
I must say, I agree with Mr. Huang.
Art is never finished, merely abandoned.
The same can be said for research papers
Setting out ones own definition of "Finished" is also important, otherwise how do you know when it's finished or not. There is always room for a tweak!
I find finished is when you do the 'Final' export, then spot a mistake, correct it, export, spot another one, correct it, export it, spot another one, correct it, export, look, look again, nope, nothing glaringly bad.. and relax.https://media.giphy.com/media/HGX3gYWt9vLZ6/giphy.gif
Of course: come back a week later and spot something that should have been obvious from the start and...repeat.
I think it's "finished" once you've gone through @Palacono's steps, upload the tutorial to Youtube, then have someone point out a glitch to you in the comments, and which point you kinda go #($* it, I'm NOT spending another three hours, rendering, another 45 minutes uploading, another 20 minutes waiting for Youtube to process, while redoing all the tags and #^&!
Then you wish you had the funds for Vimeo Pro, which would actually let you upload a new version of the video without destroying the view history of the original version.
@Triem23 I'll +1 that last comment a million times. I end up with so many versions will I'm tweaking but I can't overwrite for just that reason. It would sure declutter things, wouldn't it?
@tddavis Well, it would keep tutorials current... So, on the Hit-U channel, there's an "Essential Hitfilm 02/04a" video for HFP 2017 Update 3 because Update 3 added a function I specifically said Hitfilm DIDN'T have!.
So, y'know, Vimeo, I could just go into the tutorial EDL, add in the updated information, re-render, then re-upload. Long term, Essential Hitfilm could be constantly updated to be current--like, sometime around December, I could strip all the Hitfilm 4 stuff out of Import/Export everything on the assumption that Express users are on 2017, and 4 Pro users would have had the software for two years, thus should already know this stuff...
Hit-U long term goal is, of course, to get enough subscribers to try and make Patreon viable, at which point Patreons would get exactly that--the constantly updated/current Essential Hitfilm....
