It was immediately clear to me that something was missing in my new career as a professional streamer. And, no – I know what you’re thinking – it wasn’t a dedicated following full of enchanted viewers. Chasing viewers is for people who don’t already have them, and I have a well-deserved zero, thank you very much.
It wasn’t skill.
No, what I was missing was something to take the edge off the jarring starts and stops that wrapped each stream – and I knew just what to do.
The first step was to figure out how on Earth to use After Effects. Whether I succeeded at that remains hotly debated, but I did manage to cobble together an intro video.
Realizing only then that future streams would feel unacceptably lopsided, I panicked and threw together a quick closing video as well.
Please enjoy with my blessing.
