Uploading! At last! After two days of playing around with video files, formats, and eventually editing, the video is on it's way to online. I upgraded to Final Cut Express, and there was a steeper learning curve than expected... However, with some help from my brother, and some patience and time online, I have it sussed, and more (better) videos will be forthcoming.
488 minutes until it's done uploading apparently... o_O
