I was going to wait longer and save more clips but I’ll post this anyway. Still not 100% happy in the end video quality of export vs file size. I guess this looks ok on vimeo but it could look so much better. By slapping clips together with quicktime they lose nothing and create a bigger file but still reasonable, but no transitions or leveling effects.
Got to keep playing with the software and see if I can get a happy medium between the two
