Something went terribly wrong.

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:

well damn

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.

  2. 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.
