As you might already know, I host space oriented webcasts for Slooh.com. As shows approach I also produce promos. They’re done one man band style: research, write, find video, voice and edit. That’s fun.
Video editing is done at home where my computer is beefy. Tonight I’m in a hotel with a laptop. Editing changes have been requested! Wrong gear for the job. Time to improvise.
I tunneled in with remote control software and operated my home computer from here. It worked better than expected! I heard sound and saw video.
There was lag when pressing keys. Because of that it isn’t a good method for delicate, highly accurate edits. I just needed to modify fonts and resize graphics.
Is it OK that I did it, but was still amazed it could be done–and easily?
The file has been uploaded for Slooh’s producer to see. Mission accomplished.
