Video Editor Recommendations Onideus 12/20/2019 (Fri) 10:17:51 No. 683 [Reply] [Last]
Wut is your favorite video editor? I captured a two and a half hour stream today and I started to edit it in Adobe AfterEffects 2015 and... that was a mistake. I threw the initial edit into the render queue and... oh yeah, it only saves in lossless formats, which was gonna result in like an 800 gigabyte file... NO THANKS! So then I started poking around in Google searches and all I'm getting is this corporate con crap, like "here's a free* editor" ...but then you download the shit and it's all gimpy and retarded unless you fork over your credit card. Like... tha'fuck?! Isn't there like a modern version of VirtualDub? I did find this one program, MKVToolNix and it's really handy for messing around with remuxing and editing tracks and such, but it doesn't really have much in the way of editing ability. Same with XMedia Recode, it's a nice little conversion program, much better than that sloppy TVC crap... but uh... I need a decent editor! It doesn't have to be super complex either, I mean I don't need gawd damn 3D rendering 'n shit, I just want to splice clips and do simple editing WITH COMPLEX SETTINGS! I don't want the fucker messing around with the resolution, or using some default codec settings... simple editing... complex encoding... preferably freeware... does such a mythical beast exist?! D:

>>683 Well, so far the "best" alternative I've found is just using regular Adobe Premiere instead of AfterEffects... neither of which is free though. Pleh.
kdenlive blender and ffmpeg these are tools I use. they have community addons you could use too
I work with Premiere Pro/After Effects, and I started out with Sony Vegas - maybe you could try that? >I threw the initial edit into the render queue and... oh yeah, it only saves in lossless formats, which was gonna result in like an 800 gigabyte file It can do that depending on the project settings, sometimes Premiere comes with another program called Media Encoder, which encodes it to a more compact file that's appropriate for uploading to YouTube, for example. Free programs like Handbrake do the same sort of thing.

my T40 thinkpad will no longer recognize USB devices, but only for booting. A while ago, one day it stopped being able to boot from my USB drives which it used to be able to use. What's worse, the CD drive is broken so I have no way of booting it from anything. Luckily it hasn't needed to, but I'm pretty sure it must be a hardware issue.

am I going to have to replace the motherboard soon?
What's the cheapest thinkpad that can support either
>1 monitor at 4k/60 or
>3 or 4 monitors at 1080/60?
Not counting the built in LCD panel.
>>264
I'm pretty sure a T460 can do 4K output. Check for yourself obviously.

Take the meme pill and preorder lmao system76 new line of laptops that come with coreboot.
I bought two t420 a while back figured the first one would last a while. Love this thing. Best laptop I ever owned. Such a travesty that they don't make them like this anymore. Would kill for a square monitor.

ActiveState used to build a nice Perl but the latest is missing packages that ppm needs to run. So I tried out their slick custom build tool. Not so slick: 4 days, only half done. inb4 Win: Gotta run engineering design software that only runs on Win. :-(
You can always use the cygwin version, or even build perl yourself from the upstream source. Then just use cpan for modules.
(11.00 KB 727x187 activePerlbuildFailed.PNG)
Well, after 5 days, it failed to make-install the PPM, so yeah, I guess I'll be taking advice above and installing Cygwin at some point. For now, and maybe indefinitely, I'll stick with Perl 5.18. ActiveState Perl was very nice while it lasted. Roughly a decade for me.
>>662 I remember some distro called strawberry perl or some shit like that. Maybe that still lives?
>>665 Apparently so: https://learn.perl.org/installing/windows.html There it is, right on perl.org, and it looks easy. Maybe it's killing ActivePerl.

This technology will grow back your foreskin.
4 posts omitted.
>>235 How do you grow back a foreskin? That's like having someone's face burned off and then grafting more onto it and being able to feel your face.
>>630 It's not an exact replacement, but it's as good as it get currently... The main function of the foreskin is the act as a gasket and as lubricant during copulation. By stretching the skin out, you restore these two functions. You also undo the keratinization caused by the exposure of the glans. So by restoring, you are undoing a lot of damage. Of course an all natural foreskin is better than this (mostly because it contains specialized nerve endings) but restoring is the best option for men who want to reclaim their sexual pleasure... it's not perfect, but it's a substitute until foregen is finished with their product.

Good Holiday Tech Deals Onideus 12/02/2019 (Mon) 23:34:31 No. 636 [Reply] [Last]
Sooo... what did y'all get this Black Friday and Cyber Monday? I got two of these ripe little jobbies... https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B013HNYV8I/ Dump tier 4 TB drives for only $72 bucks, pretty sweet deal, especially considering they're not white label, refurbished crap. I've bought a lot of these drives before so I know the quality is pretty good overall. Don't ever get those cheap Toshiba drives though, they're consistently crappy. Real high failure rates and such. I also got a yearly subscription VPN from Ghost... or rather my mom got it for me. My mom kind of "red pilled" herself over the past year after watching various YouTubers and since they're always doing sponsored ads for VPNs she became convinced that everyone ~has~ to have one.
I got nothing.

>Lynx browser
Serious question why would anyone use Lynx unironically?

Or to only have a look to see a thread with no pictures?
>>499
There are a wide variety of websites that may be accessed with just lynx such as wikipedia.

Lynx is more minimal, and that's nice if you like minimalism.
>>499
Lynx works gud with torsocks, and in fact it's one of their recommended browsers. It avoids all the web beacons tracking shit, because Lynx only downloads exactly the URL you click on, and never anything more. The only exception is cookies, but it's configurable to accept only cookies from the same host, or even reject them all entirely. You can also build Lynx without cookies, and it doesn't even take long to build it on a 10-year old netbook or similar low-end hardware.
As for images, you can configure an external viewer of your choice. This is in my /etc/mailcap, and it just werks:
image/gif; sxiv '%s'; test=test -n "$DISPLAY"
image/jpeg; sxiv '%s'; test=test -n "$DISPLAY"
image/png; sxiv '%s'; test=test -n "$DISPLAY"
image/tiff; sxiv '%s'; test=test -n "$DISPLAY"
image/x-ms-bmp; sxiv '%s'; test=test -n "$DISPLAY"

retarded question i know,but i want to run my computer off of ethernet so my isp piece of shit isn'ttrying to circumvent my security stuff, but we have a whole ethernet relay that goes from the main ethernet port to the modem to the tp link which splits it into 4 and it goes some other places. our main ethernet source only has two ports and the tv gets to hog one of them and everything else shares one main source. the tp link has 6 ethernet ports so two other things could connect to it, but what i want to know is if i use the ethernet from that will the isp router still be able to see my search stuff and mac addresses n shit? also questions that don't deserve their own threads because this question alone did nothing to even deserve it's own post.
your TV is plugged into the internet, I can't help..

Laptops are a nomads and dissidents only friend. It is mobile and easily disposable. You can make copies of encrypted drives incase of data loss, ensuring you are confident of your hardware before encryption. Theft and surveillance is most effectively countered by encryption or anticipation of theft, not by how inaccessible your hard-drive is. If it is not feasible or recommended to rely mostly on encryption, it is still easier to relocate, conceal, or destroy a laptop and it components than a desktop. I however can't vouch for the security of hardware between the choices for which I am not a hardware engineer. I've read you can render a reliable thinkpad if you find an untampered BIOs and wipe the drive with a fresh OS. Write the boot sector to a USB or something if you can't trust your machine around others. I would add that in the instances of physical theft, social engineering, or torture, there should be a method of preventing this. I wonder if this would work, hear me out:
