GeekOut Plays Stonekeep: Episodes 39-41 in progress

This isn’t going to be the largest of articles, but it’s more of an update about the position of the GeekOut YouTube channel, which was really rolling for a long time. Then, one day, I seemed to have taken an extended break. Now the silence on why this has happened is finally being broken.

GeekOut Tube, as I love to call it, was a really fun period of time for me. I enjoyed the aspect of recording a game and live-recording my voice over. I then enjoyed the process of editing said footage and voice over, as well as adding animations and anything else over the top. But video editing is really as hard as all of the YouTubers said: It takes a lot of time and patience to edit video content. You have to edit out any boring and dull moments, as well as ensure that you provide the best moments, or just try not to be too dull in quieter periods of a game. With this in mind, I decided to start recording the next bunch of videos.

My new editing software: Wondershare Filmora

Not too long ago, Jake and I decided to buy brand new (matching) computers. We have some pretty powerful machines, which means I should be able to record better games for the GeekOut Tube channel. I’m excited about this, as it means I’m finally going to start recording a new series: On Final Fantasy IX using the PC version. I will be doing other games at some point: Perhaps if my computer can handle recording it, the new Tekken might make an appearance? Or how about some dungeon crawling in Dungeons of Dredmor? I’m keen to try new videos, but on top of that, I’ve had to get brand new software to accompany my new computer. Sadly, I am not longer using Kdenlive, which was a phenomenal bit of free kit. Now, I’m using Wondershare Filmora, which costs under £30 for a year’s license (Which, really, in the grand scheme of things, isn’t so bad).

The actual facilities in Filmora are better than Kdenlive’s, but considering the fact I’ve gone from an Open-Source editor to a brand new one, it’s going to take time to get used to it. The interface is familiar enough, but there’s a lot more power behind this application. I’m excited to start editing episode 39, which I intend to have released by no later than this Friday. But in the mean time, it’s over to you! Did you miss our GeekOut Plays Stonekeep series? Do you have any other games you think I should record for the channel?
