Noooo NO MORE !!! I love these videos and I am still waiting for the new iMac, and I can’t try most of this out. It’s currently so sluggish it takes the fun out of it. And these vids are exactly what I need to just brush up and stay fresh. *sigh* adding another bookmark 😀 (tldr: love the vids, keep um coming)

AnaMaria Orozco says:

Hi. I am a beginner. Is it really this complicated to finalize a project? I would personally find it very useful if you did a part 2 to see you applying this to a clip showing the before and after product.
