My First Laptop: Packard Bell EasyNote E3245


Last semester I started to enjoy video editing with the  short film we did in DAI 2 class. As we didn't know much on how to use Adobe Premiere efficiently and nobody  taught us, we end up editing that short on VHS. Luckily, at the end I was able to play a little in my cousins PC and I managed to  synch the audio and the video tracks for the final release. 

This September starts my second year in Madrid Architecture School and I needed a computer.  The DVD is becoming the way to go on video and laptops are starting to include DVD recording units. Making videos with menus that you can play in an standalone player is something I was dreaming for this last years. Being able to do that with a machine you can carry with you everywhere is just mind blowing.

Looking back to the VHS days is a pain, with such a poor image quality, the need of all this expensive equipment just to edit content poorly... and thinking that in few years with the introduction of YouTube all this DVD world going to be irrelevant....anyway... The Times they Are A-Changin'.
