  1. thank you for great tutorial! I have been editing all my videos with VSE for about year but have never used addons or changed any settings for it. Only thing I have modified is the layout (top: filebrowser, graph, preview. bottom: properties, timeline)
    You just made my VSE experience better!

  2. This ended up being a waste, but only because I thought this was an intro to using the Blender video editor, rather than an intro to the settings and customisations. So I'm gonna go try another one, but just so others like me are aware: This isn't for jumping into quick video editing.
