This is a tough one. The only thing that comes to mind is:

{motlh qaS; rut qaSbe' 'a qub wanI'vam}

"usually it happened; occasionally it didn't happen, but this occurence was rare"


> {tlhoy nI'be' HaSta tavam 'e' vItul}

> Intended meaning - “I hope this visual

> record isn’t too long”

Perhaps I would write:

{nI'qu'be' HaSta tavam; 'e' vItul}


{poH nI'qu' HaSta ta 'oHbe'; 'e' vItul}

"it isn't a visual record of too much time, that I hope"


{poH nI'qu' poQbe' HaSta tavam; 'e' vItul}

"this visual record doesn't require too much time, that I hope"
