Why Make AtomicEdits?

In 2020, I quit my tech job to pursue creating content on YouTube full-time.
The biggest problem I had with making videos was editing/removing silence from them.
(For reference, it takes 1-2 hours to edit 10 minutes of video.) I put aside 2-3 weeks in June to learn video
editing technologies (WaveSurfer.js + FFmpeg) and make a proof of concept - this is the result.
It's really rough around the edges, but saves me some time while editing.

Why Open Source My Product?

I was originally planning on selling this as a digital product (for $10-20) since I haven't made much money
after leaving my tech job, but I found another idea worth pursuing. I haven't touched this project in a month
and figured that open sourcing it can help others who may want to take this further.
