This chapter follows up EGT I by making the connections between the population dynamics and business transaction payoff analysis pictures more firm.
2013 July 15 16h14 EDT Uploading EGT 2a to vimeo. 16h21 Filled out the vimeo metadata. 16h22 The default thumbnail chosen is appropriate.
2013 July 15 20h39 EDT Uploaded EGT 2b to vimeo. Video is converting. 20h40 EDT Conversion complete. Excellent automatic choice of thumbnail. There are a couple sentences with noticeable audio splicing. One of them could pass for a compression artifact or something else of a technical nature like that. The second one sounds like weird splicing to make up for a mistake (i.e. it sounds the way correction fluid looks when applied to a typing mistake). This could be fixed at another time using a new audio recording. I have a higher-pitch version (also with the wrong words) that I would rather not use. It’s so highly pitched that one can hear dryness and non-optimal vocal performance (doesn’t sound optimally healthy).
2013 July 15 20h44 EDT Added both EGT 2a and 2b to lookatphysics vimeo channel. 20h47 EDT Added EGT 2b to the qbio.lookatphysics.com/egtworkshop.php page (added EGT 2a earlier this afternoon). 21h23 EDT Added EGT 2a and 2b to lookatphysics main qbio.lookatphysics.com/index.php (also their supporting PPTX file). 21h31 EDT Updated dvd.php.
2013 July 16 14h42 EDT Loaded lightbox for EGT 2a on lookatphysics.com (vimeo embed). 15h03 EDT Watched EGT 2a in entirety on lightbox. Generally looks and sounds nice. The opening paragraph is a bit high pitched. Also, the letter-O notation lines are missing spaces between the coefficient “stuff” and the powers of Delta t for some of the terms. 17h03 EDT Re-recorded and now re-encoding EGT 2a to correct the spacing error. I also fixed another small glitch in timing of animated flashing glowing spheres. 17h12 EDT Re-uploading to vimeo. Fortunately, the file is the same length, so I don’t need to update metadata anywhere (but I do have to update the dvd file). 17h14 EDT Replaced EGT 2a in DVD folder. Conversion is about to begin on vimeo. 17h17 EDT Conversion is underway with about 3 minutes estimated to remain. 17h19 EDT “Just finishing up a few things.” 17h20 EDT Conversion complete, and updated vimeo thumbnail.
2013 July 16 17h27 EDT Loaded lightbox for EGT 2a on lookatphysics.com (vimeo embed). 17h47 EDT Watched EGT 2a in entirety (eyes stayed on screen) on lightbox. Looks fine. No obvious antivirus/system dialog boxes. I noticed that the “definition equal sign” was used somewhere where it might not have been necessary. 18h07 EDT I mentally zoned out (still paid attention to visuals, but not fully attending to audio) during the last half of the video, so I reviewed that locally from the DVD folder starting from time mark 8m34s (as best I as I could remain tuned in — 20 minutes is a long video). Nothing obviously bad popped up. I was conscious for most of the synced transitions, and I rewound the video when I thought I wasn’t fully paying attention. This took a lot of attention. I now feel drained.
2013 July 16 22h34 EDT Re-encoding EGT 2b with a small correction to that one weird-sounding sentence. It’s still weird sounding, but, I think, not as bad. This will require a slight adjustment to metadata on dvd.php. 22h38 EDT Replaced EGT 2b mp4 file in DVD folder. 22h39 EDT Updated dvd.php to correct for duration. 22h40 EDT Re-uploading EGT 2b to vimeo. 22h41 EDT Conversion is about to begin. 22h43 EDT Conversion is underway. 22h46 EDT Final touches. 22h47 EDT Conversion complete. Changed thumbnail back to previous one. Viewing locally, the audio weirdness is not too bad if the volume is not too high.
2013 July 17 09h55 EDT Re-encoding EGT 2b with a couple small corrections to the same weird-sounding sentence. I think it’s better now. 10h06 EDT Re-uploading EGT 2b to vimeo. 10h11 EDT “Just finishing” 10h12 EDT Conversion complete, and it happened to choose the thumbnail I wanted this time. 12h12 EDT Loaded lightbox for EGT 2b on lookatphysics.com. 12h25 EDT Watched EGT 2b in entirety on lookatphysics.com lightbox (vimeo embed). Great. I just wish it weren’t so low pitched, but it has to be so as to avoid an even more stark contrast with the video that follows it (both in the main gallery and in the EGT tour).
2013 July 21 22h27 EDT Re-encoding EGT 2a (small pitch corrections in first 49 seconds of audio—originally rather high). Some timbre artifacts are noticeable, but I think this is less irritating than the previous version with very high-pitched sound. 22h36 EDT Re-uploading to vimeo. 22h37 EDT Replaced EGT 2a in DVD folder. 22h38 EDT Conversion is underway on vimeo (4%, 7.5 minutes remaining). 22h43 EDT Conversion stuck at 50% with estimated time remaining ticker increasing. 22h48 EDT Still stuck at 50%, re-uploading. 22h49 EDT Conversion is about to begin. 22h54 EDT Interesting. Reloading the page shows that the video has completely converted and has a thumbnail (the correct one). However, until I reloaded, I would have thought that it was stuck before conversion for the last 5 minutes. 22h55 EDT It’s the right file.
2013 August 1 11h48 EDT Uploading EGT 2a and 2b to udemy. 11h52 EDT EGT 2b has uploaded and is processing. 11h54 EDT EGT 2a has uploaded and is processing. 11h57 EDT EGT 2b finished processing, changed thumbnail, copied description. 12h05 EDT EGT 2a finished processing, changed thumbnail, copied description. 12h05 EDT Pressed publish and set downloadable to ON for both EGT 2a and 2b.
# Audio opening paragraph is crackly
# Audio just before slide 5
# Sync error into slide 5 (too early)
# Sync error fraction C/N on slide 5 (too late)
# as reasonable: Audio pp. 6-8 particularly crackle here and there throughout
# Sync error slide transition to denim trajectory
# One of the audio edits sounds off-rhythm
# As reasonable, Some of the color stuff is not so good
2013 July 17 21h58 EDT Forgot to mention there is a slight frame drop at the beginning of the first video (EGT 2a).
