Making videos about focus stacking

As part of an OpenPlant science grant that I've been given, I'm making videos about focus stacking in photography and it's hilariously complicated.

This is the first video:

This is a screenshot of the jigsaw of pieces that went to make the video:

The top line is the text overlays, the second line is the video footage, the third line is the little groinking noises of the motor and that last line is my voice-over.

Converting the format in Premiere Pro CS3 to a video file that I can upload to Youtube takes two and half hours on my laptop. Who knew!?

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to anyone who is reading this. I hope you are having fun too.
