Yes, I can imagine some number of hours of editing time per every so many minutes of finished video. Stitching the SeeYou footage in there and captions surely makes that ratio larger.
Don't lose too much sleep. Do you typically do an edit in one big session or break it up into multiple sittings? I'm sure the latter isn't quite as efficient since you have to take a little time to getback to where you left off (mentally and in the software), but maybe if you could set aside some chunk of editing time per day or per week it might take less out of you. The older I get, the more I appreciate the value of sleep, even if it means a slower pace on my 6+ page project list. Of course, now I seem to have fallen into the pattern of waking up an hour or two before the alarm almost every day after having odd dreams.
Although one dream last week did have some flying in it - I was at some house in the town I work in but I didn't have my phone so I was trying to contact my wife by email ( which probably wouldn't have been very effective in real life since she's horrible about checking her email). I was out front of the house in the next part of the dream and was soon floating upwards in a somewhat leaned-back seated position, like in a PG race harness, except I don't remember a harness or any sort of wing in the dream. I flew off back behind the row of houses where there were some big rolling fields separated by fences and bordered by some trees at the far edges. There was a battle reenactment going on as I flew over the fields and I remember trying to avoid that as I flew. I ended up at this deserted place with small brownish gravel on the ground. It was set up to be a garden center for multiple vendors and each portion of it was individually caged off with black vertical wrought-iron-like fencing and had smaller cage-like stalls inside for the various types of long-handled tools and other things a garden center might sell. I had gotten some tools to start stocking the stalls with, but I remember they were all mixed up types and ended up in this arching jumble when I went to put them in the stall.
Back to video editing - any likes/dislikes for software and/or hardware? I need to get a new machine before I do much editing. The last computer I built to do video stuff is now over 10 years old and has sucked a fat one when I did super-simple stuff like crop a few-minutes-long 1080 HD video.
