Is your blog thumbnail consistently not showing up on Facebook? Doesn’t that suck???? I let this problem go on for faaaaaaar too long. There was a period where I was very afraid of my own ignorance, and thought I could ignore what I didn’t know. Wow, was I silly! Jump to 1:30 for your solution! The first minute and a half is for those who aren’t sure if this is the problem they’re having or if it’s something else. If this doesn’t work for you, I do mention another solution at 4:02. And I would recommend checking out some other blogs or videos like these ones: This is what it…
Vertical, Square, Horizontal… there are so many formats for our media nowadays! It’s hard to know what format you need when going into content capture mode. Good thing we can transfer between platforms and formats! In this Tutorial Tuesday video I’ll show you three ways to turn your vertical photo (this would work for vertical videos too, you know!) into something that can be shown in a horizontal video for Final Cut Pro X.
I went live at Dragoncon for my Vlogs On Saturdays – but couldn’t share the live to my business page! Grrrrr… Something to do with “Facebook Business Manager” and their dumb defaults. 🙁 But! thanks to Kayla Crosby though, I was able to fix this, and now can share all I want! If you have this problem and want to fix it – here’s the answer! Tutorial starts at 1:00! Otherwise I’m explaining what this problem is and why it is troublesome. Stay inspired friends! Katie
I got asked a question about posting videos to Instagram. It was about that vague- I mean, there are FOUR main ways to post videos to Instagram, which way did they mean? In true Katie-style, when the choice is “big” or “home” we choose big. SO. Here are the four ways to post videos to Instagram and how to do each way. Plus a little bit of narration, chatting, philosophy, etc etc along the way.

In 2016, Digiday reported that 85% of Facebook video is watched without sound. Insert captions! You’ve watched plenty of videos with captions. Some of them you can choose to put on, some of them are a part of the video file itself, and some of them automatically appear like when you are scrolling your news feed on Facebook. This video will show you how to put the ones onto your facebook videos in the EASIEST MANNER. (Because as mentioned, there ARE other ways but they are more difficult and take longer). Hope this helps!
For so long, I’ve manually typed in my description for each video, and while, as you can see now, I’m typing in something unique, I would have to re-think and re-research and re-type certain things for the video. Like my website and email etc etc. It was time consuming and not efficient. What IS efficient, is to have an automatic and consistent description that gets all the important information to you, but also makes me look that much more professional and put together. 😉 Now you can appear that way too. Stay inspired, muh peeps! Katie
Final Cut Pro X updated, and with it went some apperance changes. In order to grow the clips in both the timeline and clip archives, you must now click a new button, or use the shortcut Command +. To shrink the clips, use Command -. This shortcut makes each second of footage take up either more space or less space.
