Wow, imagine if you had to go thru all this to create a cat video for YouTube!

Dad dabbled at film editing during the early 1960's. Working with the 8mm film format was tedious and he gave it up after a year or so. IMO film editing is easy compared to audio tape editing because film gives you a visual reference to your work. I dabbled with audio tape editing with open reel tape for a some years until computers became sophisticated enough to replace tape.

I agree, KDP, splicing audio tape in the home was a royal pain in the butt! Today, if/when I need to do some audio work I use a program I've had for a long, long time called Gold Wave. (Yes, that's a plug - No, I don't own a piece of it.)

I've never done any of that but I understand how its done (somewhat) and I know I'd not have patience for it. Computers make everything easier, but some day when the aliens come they will take us down with simple EMPs because nobody will know how to do anything 'analog' anymore. 😉
