Me too! But I am still in the Denny's coloring pages ! LOL
You have some good video but it's just too long. The hardest thing in editing is cutting out all that footage. BUT....until you can do it, your videos will be too long and no one will watch more than a minute. A 45 second video with lots of movement will always beat out a 5 min. General rules I follow: 1) Keep the length 2-3 min. 2) only use clips where the shot is moving 3) delete pans or anything that has a sudden movement. 4) delete camera tilts 5) try to use 5-10 second clips 6) never show take off and landing. This is hard when you're proud of all that great footage that you think is just going to waste. Trust me.....you have to do it.
With PD14, to make a transition, just grab the clip on the right and drag it left partially over the clip on the left. That will create a fade. You can then double-click the green overlap and adjust the length to 1 or 2 seconds.
Here is an older vid I did while learning the program. I had two major mistakes. One was a blank spot where I forgot to overlap and the other was including a camera tilt. There may be some others, but I did manage to reduce 30 minutes of video to 2 minutes.
BTW, once you upload to youtube, it takes a long time for it to process and even after it says it's published, it will be several minutes before the higher resolutions are completed.
