I'm back from UMD. Actually, I was back yesterday, but when I got home I had to edit my little brother's video. I finished at 1:30, and spent the next 5 hours trying to get it on tape. Sound familiar? :) This time, I had my own copy of windows to drive the matrox card, but I couln't make the MPG at all. In particular, I couldn't multiplex the video and audio streams. It was taking an incredibly long time using
from mpeg2encode. Why does this task take so long? I tried using the vcd multiplexer on it, but that just made a mess (didn't take very long, though). Eventually, due to the fact that I didn't sleep well the night before and it wasn't looking like I'd sleep that night, I just loaded the audio and the video into 2 separate copies of media player and played them at roughly the same time :P
Then I got to sleep. Woke up, plummer's here, can't eat lunch.
Yesterday's orientation was pretty good, by the way. I got my student ID and lots of free T-shirts and other stuff. When I went back to try to get my schedule taken care of, the guy said they were really busy and I'd have to wait a couple hours. Didn't want to wait, so I'm coming back on monday to do it.
I'm really out of it right now. I should've thought of playing both streams at the same time long ago, so I could've slept longer.
