Something went terribly wrong.Posted: October 18, 2013 Filed under: Uncategorized 4 Comments
Several hours ago, I promised a complete countdown post would be available by morning-time. It is now 5:43 am, and this post is not even close.
With two weeks to go until Halloween, I had hoped to share my own amateur zombie makeup tutorial video with you, before directing you to some good professional ones.
Just after midnight, I finished editing my movie project. I reviewed it once last time, then saved. Then this happened:
I’ve spent far too many hours trying to repair it. Apparently, something is corrupted.
I still have all the original video files, so it’s possible for me to do it over again if I can figure out what went wrong. We’ll see about that after I’ve had some sleep.
Right now – before I take my frustrated self off to dreamland – what I’m going to do is point you at one of my favorite blogs, The Year of Halloween. The web-mistress there, Eva Halloween, is a makeup tutorial connoisseur. For the time being, I think it best to step aside and let an expert guide your tour:

Too many times I have had this happen with windows movie maker, why I do not know.
This is the first time for me. It was a bit of a shock, but I’m pleased to know I’m not the only one that has things like this happen.
Ohhhh I’ve had some moments with Movie Maker in the past and feel your pain. Although I have moments with all video software and anything techie. Hope it didn’t ruin your whole day. That’s what it usually does with me. And yaaaaaaaay for 2 week shareable! 🙂
Well, luckily, it couldn’t REALLY ruin a whole day because I didn’t even know there was a problem until I was just trying to get done so I could go to bed.
I THINK the video miraculously repaired itself while I slept, and I’ll be able to put it up tonight. We’ll see. A quick view tells me it stripped out some of the effects I had chosen. I’d rather have those in there, but maybe I’ll have to stop asking it to do so much in order for it to work properly.
I torture software. I’m always trying to make it do more than it wants to do.
