Usually, Kyle's explanations are good, but this is terrible. Not only does he not give an over-the-shoulder view explanation but he does it all left-handed.

I'm right-handed so watching the video is sooooo confusing. I gave up after many attempts. You have to do so much reversing and double reversing in your mind that the video is totally useless because you have to pause it a billion times to get the orientation correct. And then just when you think you have it, you don't.

For the life of me I just don't understand why these guys don't shoot these tutorials over the shoulder because that's exactly how the viewer is viewing it. The way they do it is a mirror image. Our brains don't automatically reverse the image so that we can follow along easily.

This just frustrates me to death! If you're mirror-image-challenged like me, pass this by. I wish I could figure it out because it's a good effect but I don't have triple the time or patience to do it.

Ahhh, a right-handed person had trouble understanding a tutorial video by a left-handed video because he had to reverse images in his mind. My tiny violin is creaking under the strain.

Place a mirror a proper distance away in front of your monitor. The get behind the monitor and watch the video through the mirror. 👍
