Well it's 2:23am and I'm still up mastering a final DVD. I'm getting ready to ship it off to be published. Did I set all the encode settings right? Are the graphics crisp? I hope I didn't forget to change that font...
A thousand questions and worries go through my head. People are going to buy this, and watch it!
At this moment this is my baby. I feel like an expectant father. LOL. As I wait for the PC to render the final master I worry. All the last minute changes have been done. All the tweaking I can do has been done. Now, the waiting.
I wait. I can hear the hard drive whirring. Watch the little meter slowly crawl from one end to the other. I wait to see what it will look like on my TV. On my monitor. On my portable.
Tomorrow it will ship it Fedex and I will wait still. Wait for the publisher to say they got it, wait for them to process it. Wait, Wait, Wait!
What if they hit a snag??? "Sorry sir, but your files are messed up..." or something like that.
I wish this thing would go faster! Arrrggggg! LOL
I've been tweaking, assembling and encoding all day. All night. I think it's perfect. Ok, I HOPE it's perfect.
Should I just go to sleep and let it master all night, or stay up and wait for the arrival of the newborn? It will be there in the morning. I can check it then. Right?
Geez, I never new my PC could be so slow! But patience is a virtue. It will be done when it gets done. Patience is a virtue I don't have time for right now. LOL
Drink another cup of coffee. Stare at the monitor. The little bar isn't even half way yet.
Maybe if I get up and walk around. Yeah, thats the ticket I'll pace. Wear a hole in the floor.
I sure hope people want to buy this thing. What if it doesn't sell? What if my great idea was just a brain fart and nobody cares?
This is nerve racking.
I'm going to bed.
Wait, the DVD spun up!!!
No, it was just something processing. I guess. Maybe it's a glitch? Naaa.
.Looks like it will process all night. I'll just lay my head down on the keyboard for a few...min...
