Back in the saddle

I started a vid tonight. It's been--oh god--almost two years since I vidded. I've forgotten how I did this.

(On the other hand, vidding! Creative output! Surely fic cannot be far behind...especially since I still haven't started my Yuletide fic. *hands*)

ETA: So El Capitan (newish Mac OS) broke Handbrake, because of course it did. But Google to the rescue, after I gave myself some permissions I apparently didn't have, I was able to copy the little library file over into the usr/local/lib folder, crossing my fingers all the while that I wouldn't break anything. Seems okay so far. Now let's just see if reimporting this episode fixes the problem in iMovie, which is probably also due to things updating while I haven't used it in two years...

ETA 2: Reimporting didn't fix the problem. :( (When I import new video I've ripped, or even ripped long ago and saved, it turns solid green. Everything I imported in 2015 and before is fine.) The Oracle of Google has no answers either, and playing around with preferences, file format of the video I'm trying to import, even running the damn thing through MPEG Streamclip first doesn't work.

ETA 3: The clip imports into iMovie 10. Which I loathe. Ugh. Do I try and work with this stupid program or do I give up...

Eeeek. I don't think I've had any trouble with Handbrake since upgrading. But then I just looked at my old iMac and I still have Yosemite on there, and I usually use that machine for Handbrake (and I run an old version with old VLC so I can still rip non-R1 DVDs). Maybe I'll try something on my laptop to see if it works. Yikes.

(That said, I also inherited a 2008-era MBP from work that can't run anything past Mavericks, and am hanging on to it for the same reason I hang onto the iMac--multi-region DVDs. So this may not be a huge issue for me. But still!!)

BTW--about to post something you might find interesting. :)

Yeah, it's El Capitan that breaks Handbrake. There's a fairly easy fix, though; you just have to dig up a file that El Capitan quarantines in a hidden-away root folder and move it back to your usr/lib folder. If you need it, I'll see if I can dig the site I found the instructions on out of my Firefox history. (I ran into a lot of sites telling you to do stuff in Terminal, which a. didn't work, and b. scared the crap out of me because it seems really easy to break important things in Terminal.)
