Okay, we've had too much problems (lag, crashing, brbing, etc.) So we need to work out a system for one of us to film if another person, be it me or thermal, cant.

I can edit, film and smooth (just a bit)
Thermal can both film and smooth.
Midgey can film, seeing as he is the one coming up with the ideas.

I propose that if I crash while shooting, that Thermal film what midgey says, or that midgey films it himself.
This both saves times and ensures that precious bookings aren't wasted.

One can then send it to me via msn/email/whatever after filming.

P.S If anyone else wants to film for me it would be appreciated.

On a slightly unrelated note:
Progress Report on TDK:
Ok, it looks a little weird, but i think thats what vegas does to all my videos D:. You'll see what i mean when you see it. I've had to rely on editing via Vegas instead of smoothing because it confuses me, so yeah D:. Ill rapidfire what a low-qual version of what I've done sometime on Sunday.

Snippets are really all we need, just to see how it's going. By the way I found a new format that I think would be AWESOME to publish our videos in. DivX is very popular and very high quality. If you give me a full complete copy of TDK when done I'll convert it to DivX and we'll see how it goes.

Another way of filming is via Gmod. You can place an actual camera so we can film it a bit easier, but that would be more useful in future videos. Keep us updated falcon! Very Happy

A warning to all filming, it helps to turn down your materiel graphics (or was it models..?) while filming for less lag. That is if you experience it while filming.

Oh, one more thing (lol when will this guy shut up?) I downloaded the correct codecs for virtual dub so I can compress the videos properly should you need me to.

Wow, that's pretty cool. So does that mean when we upload to YouTube and all is it much high in quality?

Well YouTube has it's own type of video formatting (i'm assuming because I've never actually uploaded anything before) so DivX won't make much of a difference I think. But we can upload it to our site (can we?) and it'll be an awesome quality. If we can't upload to the site than forget about it Very Happy

Wow, so does this mean when we upload videos, it will play in Divix from our site as the player? And also on WordPress? Very Happy

Well, yeah we can try that. Vimeo is generally a higher quality than YouTube.
