[ COMPLETE ] Challenge #31: Big Brother
« on: October 27, 2012, 07:42:12 pm »

Challenge #31:Big Brother



Lotsa Windows


Deadline: March 1st, 2013 (completed)


This is a free-for-all with a twist. The final entry must be a still render. However, the catch is that you must also capture the entire process via a screen recording program! Use youtube or a similar video sharing website to showcase this.

This challenge will have a public poll. Vote for the best entry. Only still renders coupled with a youtube video of the process qualify.

Before you ask...
  • Use Anim8or for at least a little of your work (has to be in the workflow somewhere).
  • Try making everything from scratch
  • Use recording software like CamStudio.
  • Record the entire process! From Concept to Completion. That's the primary point here! You can narrate if you want, or else pick out some background music.
  • Try to keep the video less than 30 minutes. Fast forward (timelapse) when possible, so long as the viewer can get a gist of what you're doing.

Enjoy the challenge!

I guess I should clarify so it doesn't confuse you..."Big Brother" refers to the book 1984. It's not the subject matter that your work has to focus on. It's a free-for-all, pick whatever subject you want.

(ps I hate that stupid book)

As I just got inspiration for yet another brainfart, I'll bite. Though, I am a slow, plug-along builder much of the time... Does everyone REALLY want to see me take hours staring at a blank screen before producing something as phenomenal as a cube?

Seriously (EDIT) here we go... a preview of what I intend to make...

(EDIT 2) Let me smoke my pipe:

I would also like to point out that this competition is very good in terms of helping others understand and grasp how users use anim8or, by visually interpreting the process(s).

P.S. Arik I lol'd hard at the music in the second video ;p

Thanks, Dude... yeah, that song was a hoot! Discovered it a few days back, and it was actually my reason for thinking "Popeye".... as well as the fact that I like to smoke my pipe!



Yes, that's me, so let me smoke my pipe!

Ok, here's the first part to what I'm doing. It's a long vid...sorry but if I sped it up any faster then it'd be incomprehensible :P Some modeling and most rendering will be done in Anim8or, the rest in various programs.

Raxx, you HAVE to use that guy in an animation or something sometime. Just TOO COOL of a character to not. Really cool video, and I think I have what I'm doing in mind...

Alrighty, here's mine I completed across today.



My capture program glitched up a bit during my texture-building session, but most of the textures didn't show up at all in the final render. I had fun with this one; t'was a speed-build!

I cannot use my YouTube account all of a sudden

YouTube won't let me use my account because it says that it has to be linked to a Google account. Which is was linked too. So when I try to relink it, it says my Google account is already linked to a YouTube account. Now when I logged into Google with my Google account, it automatically logs me into youtube, with my Google account.
So my real name appears as the user instead of my handle name (what I prefer to use). And that made me a new channel, using my real name.
My instant thought is, well this must be linked to my google account, so I went through the horrible hoops youtube makes you do, and I unlink my account.
And it say "This feature is not available for this account."

So I can't use youtube, and on top of that youtube now looks like its trying to be windows 8. It actually hurts my eyes to look at and its giving me headaches.
So I can't do this competition it looks like.

I can get full screen to work.

I'm thinking of deleting my google account, recreating it, and linking that to my youtube, hopefully it will work.

UPDATE:
I did just that and it works now, lets hope the next time youtube updates, it DOESNT REMOVE my google account from it ):<
I'm not even capitalizing youtube or google anymore, because they don't even deserve that.
But now that is done, I have to go about redoing all my google+ stuff again
me = NOT HAPPY

UPDATE 2:
Nope, didn't work, I try to go to google plus, now its asking for a phone number WHEN I DON'T HAVE A PHONE (and I do not want one). But no reason to be yelling here, I just wish google would stop being a <insert hurtfull word here> about it
