An old project becomes new

Back in the day, I mentioned a little project I wanted to work up one of these days.

The rough draft is done. I was surprised at how quick it went together once I found most of the pieces I needed. Having done no prior video editing, Windows Movie Maker didn't come across as the clunky piece of junk most people say it is. I'm sure if I were to work with a more fully-featured piece of software, I'd have similar thoughts.

But I really don't want to put it up for God and everyone to download until I have a couple key people give it a look over, gather some opinions, and make some revisions. I also don't want to decimate the monthly bandwidth allowance. The 3:57 file is about 40MB. (but it's probably the height of arrogance to assume I'd get enough interest to burn all my allotment.) My hope is to put up a private password-protected page so those key people could review the video and comment. After that, I'll probably just throw it up on Youtube or something.

Supposedly, there are improvements in the works to make just such limited access possible.

*wink wink nudge nudge*

Sent you an e-mail regarding sending the beta; all I can say is "Darolius".  It's really, really good.

And small.

Free, too.

2 Hmmm... Interesting. Am I reading right that it can recombine on the other end without the recipient having to install the Darolius software? That would be quite cool.

Yes, that's quite right.  You can choose to have a very small program (15kb?) generated when you split the file... when you click the program, assuming all the chunks are in the same folder, it automatically recombines them.

I tells ya, Darolius is a swell program!
