What settings did you use?
I'm having trouble getting this thing to produce results even close to what you specified...
*tries a few more things*
Now all I get is failure to open the file before the video processes.
Not working at all for me... :(


Heh, actually I set it for a set size of 200 megs and got 78 :P No idea why. It takes quite a while for it to process, sadly, so tests are a bit time consuming, but it helps if you just set them up and do other things. The quality wasn't stellar, but we are trying to put a half hour into a 100 meg file. This is like old fansub days. Best you could do of course is the H.263 or whatever that codec is. May be worth looking into as well.

It doesn't work - not in VDub or in the render process.
I also can't Zarx a mp4.
I'm stuck...

You shouldn't be doing it in mp4 anyway. You should be rendering uncompressed AVI or DV or something of great quality as a basis. Starting from MPEG is a terrible idea either way. It's already a terrible codec for modern times.

Anyone think I'd be overstepping if I used Stinkmeaner from Boondocks? ^^ Pretty much no way to avoid the 'N' word (got I hate having to type that shit out when referring to a word) in that situation, but I'm wondering if it'll matter to anyone ^^

Sammy:
You kidding?
What would I do without you? ;)

Gael:
And if the N word seems like it might be a problem, you can always exercise some creative censorship.
You know how to do that. :P

I honestly don't know what to do for an intro ^^ I may have outdone myself with the Dr. Who intro... and teh 3 weeks of work it took. I sincerely hope I can come up with something, or someone else can come up with something cool for an intro that will keep it up as a good drawing factor.

And of course, we've gotta keep the credits in mind as well ^^

Anyway, I've already got many ideas in the wings, and I'll get started earlier this time once I get a job again.

Just show the audience you are self aware about it and directly follow it with a Michael Richards clip.

Only thing I could think of was being ironic, and having Bob from Tenjou Tenge be the one screaming it or something... but he never really screams ^^ But Bob calling all the other Japanese people there 'Nyegkuh' in that absurd way Stinkmeaner says it made me smile ^^ Although the alternative works for when he possesses Tom and just use the line "OH YEAYUH!! AH'M GONNA HAVE SEXSHUAL RELATIONS WIT' YA'LL!!" Oh well, I'll play with it ^^

Haha! I liked that, but my initial impressions are it probably wouldn't work ^^ The way they're talking only really works in the context of someone obviously trying to act, and that doesn't translate well into anime, because most characters look more exaggerated by default. The only way I could see it working is if the characters' pupils were animated to look like they were reading something below/above the screen like they are in the clip. There may be other ways, but that's the only thing that comes to mind. With the lack of graffiti, this'd be a clip I'd cut down the audio because its jokes are kind of far between, so the clip could get boring pretty quick if it's not sped up. Usage of a badass character like Kusanagi as the female cop would be potentially amusing, since someone as cool as Kusanagi reading a script like that makes me chuckle just thinking about it.

Some potential there, but definitely requires a lot of work to make it work.

Hey everyone! Now that we have power back I wanted to check in. So far so good over here. The hurricane knocked down several trees last night but as far as I could tell in the dark nothing hit the house or the cars, my neighbors weren't so lucky. Hope those of you closer to the cost are okay and didn't suffer too much damage. My brother who was staying on the Eastern Shore during the storm called early yesterday afternoon and was all like "OMG this is so cool! There are white caps in the creek!" -_-*
