I used Kdenlive. The big problem is speed isnot keyframeable

@Fabby I already ate my quota in chips and dips and it's only 4 pm.
@WinEunuuchs2Unix Just pointing out that Imperial mass units are a mess:
@Fabby oh yeah back to my "Big Number Calculator" project again :p
@WinEunuuchs2Unix :D :D :D

1Kg is 1 pound, 2 ounces, 3 drams, 4 Scruples and 5 grains.

@Fabby lol we just say 1KG is 2.2 pounds or something like that :)
Anyway, the US is not even using the Imperial system: you're using the colonial system as the imperial system was revamped after 1776...
Canada converted from Imperial to Metric in 1976 or so. Not many people remember imperial system anymore.
I was still taught how to convert from one to the other...
Lemme look for my map...
Urgh... Can't find it. Anyway, US, Liberia and Myanmar are still on the colonial system.
@MathCubes Sorry for butting in with cooking-related stuff. Do you need it?
1$ for a bunch of shit stuff you don't need is still 1$ too much...
