Trigger warning for loud sounds towards the end of the vid.


This was entirely edited, and was supposed to be exported, in 48fps, not 50. Funny thing is, Premiere simply doesn’t allow custom frame rates in its export window, despite supporting it as a sequence setting. I could have exported the Premiere file into After Effects and added the sequence to the render cue, but I couldn’t because AE threw me an error every time I tried. That, combined with the legitimately unbelievable amount of bugs and errors and crashes left me feeling so exhausted and numb that I ultimately decided it was worth sacrificing one 25th of a second’s worth of timing here and there. If you catch any editing errors, that’d be why. Oh well!! Don’t buy Adobe products.
