Hi Emily, welcome to the Org.
I've been editing for twenty years and I still struggle to make decent AMVs without extra video effects. The important questions, however, would seem to be: are you having fun and are you interested in improving? If you answered yes, you're in the right hobby and in the right place.
As to uploading, well... we still use an old method called FTP. It hasn't aged well in comparison to modern-day "drag and drop" uploading experiences like you've largely grown up with and so it might seem daunting at first. It actually isn't that hard once you do it. Start here. Then go here. And if you get lost, there's an entire guide here. Eventually we hope to implement a very intuitive drag and drop upload method ourselves.
I'm also a girl. Many of the most active editors are and have been. Compared to the perception of other technical hobbies, I think we've done a pretty good job of being gender balanced. That doesn't mean this was always true, but it generally is now.
I hit a wall imediatly, my amv after exporting was at 510mb so ofc I compressed the video and I got it at a nice 183 mb without losing too much quality but now when I look at the Ftp uploading thing it says max 150mb... any ideas on what I can do?
