Scrivener Tutorial #2: Manuscript Creation

So this video is later than I wanted it to be. I’m still new with being a Youtuber, and occasionally I run into hiccups.

I was struggling with my videos being blurry after uploading them and I couldn’t figure out what the problem was. I checked my rendering settings, I rendered again in “Highest Quality” settings which took an hour, and uploaded it again.

Same problem.

So I deleted and uploaded it a third time. By then I was scouring Youtube trying to figure out what was happening. I kept being told to change my Default Upload Settings on Youtube, but it didn’t have any video quality settings, just basic fields like title, description, etc. Then I found a post that explained what was happening.

When Youtube tells you that a video has finished getting processed, it isn’t really done. The first rendition of that video is finished, but all of the resolutions haven’t been uploaded yet. So when I saw that blurry 380p version with all my Scrivener text unable to be read, I freaked out thinking it was a problem on my end. Really I just had a wait a bit longer for Youtube to catch up rendering the rest of my resolutions.

Thankfully this was an easy fix, but I wanted to share it so others didn’t waste a four hours of their Friday night trying to solve it! haha

In Part 2 of my Scrivener Tutorial series, I talk about moving sections, moving books around in a single project, setting project wordcount targets, working with templates, and outlining with the corkboard.
If you want to dig into what makes Scrivener so cool, this is a good place to start!
