Created new Facebook Profile Video Pics using FCPX

The other day I was looking for some new ideas for videos I make for my son’s Boy Scout troop, and I received an email from Pixel Film Studios about a new plug-in called ProFreez Comic for Final Cut Pro.  Well the luck of the Irish was smiling down on me, everything was 25% off for St. Patrick’s Day!  I ended up purchasing ProFreez Comic and ProFreeze Spatter.

So I created a test clip using a few selfies from my camping trips this year.  I kept the clips at 5 seconds, changed the duration of the plug-in to just a few seconds, and saved to my Photo Library.  Using my iPhone, I changed my Facebook profile to the video clips below ( I ended up keeping version 2).  The music clip is not available in Facebook profiles.

Goodbye Comcast Home Phone

It is not with great sadness that I say goodbye to my Comcast Home Phone service.  The service was good, in fact, I can only think of two-time the service was out, and that was due to traffic accidents.  The only people who called the home phone was my parents and telemarketers.  I have a hard time justifying the price of the phone service and the monthly rental of the modem to receive calls from people I didn’t know.

The Arris cable modem that Comcast had me rent for a very long time. It was a good device, but it is no longer needed.

Now all I have is Internet service from Comcast.  I dumped cable television about 1.5 years ago, and nobody in the house misses it.  We watch Netflix and a few things on Apple TV.  Someday I’ll install a HD antenna in the attic for local channels.
