National Geographic

This morning I’ve been watching a number of interesting videos taken at zoos and exhibitions including a snake befriending a hamster, a squirrel that knows how to water-ski and others.

However, there were a few suggestions on those that linked to some National Geographic videos that turned out to be AMAZING.

Here’s the playlist I picked from their channel:

Step Seq

Recently I discovered a ‘game’ on Kongregate called Step Seq. Apparently there are electronic devices that look exactly like this simulation. Their point is to create music on a time and frequency grid. I’ve been playing around with this one, seen at http://www.kongregate.com/games/quickfingerz/step-seq.

The fun of this is that I’ve also been video-recording a few of these and have been posting them to Youtube.

The few I’ve uploaded include an initial boring tutorial and then three more samples. They can be seen with the following links:

New Videos and Subscription

Greetings, all! It’s been a while since I did any animation. My attention has been more on live videography of various things including game and oscilloscope capturing. However, just today I put together something like four new animations, plus one overdubbed video of myself whistling three parts to a song. Vain me, eh?

Anyhow, here is a list:

Youtube in 3D

Oh cool! I found that in TestTube (the Youtube labs), there is a feature to make a stereoscopic 3d video out of two videos on your channel! So I quick opened up 3dsmax, did a rotation around the classic teapot (which had a bit of texturing), and rendered two cameras side by side.

Youtube (Again)

Ten great uploads just today!! Nine of the ten are mine (and Andrea’s) first Linerider lines that I didn’t ever get a chance to capture until a few weeks ago. Check them out here.

Also, Dad brought home his Batman figurines we got him on a birthday cake a long time ago. Well, I just couldn’t resist an animation.

Youtube Shorts – Sony Vegas Testing

Recently (I think I mentioned this before) I found a trial version of Sony Vegas 10 Pro, an excellent piece of software for video mixing in Windows. Well, from Christmas until New Years, I took four videos which I later (just today) finally mixed up at the fastest possible framerate.

See how you like them by watching:

Yet another short intro

I’ve posted another prospective intro. See how you all like PPS Short – Black Exploding Cube

I was able to download a trial copy of Sony Vegas, which I’m experimenting with. The cool thing here is that this software will allow you to make 1-frame per picture animations, unlike Movie Maker which is limited to 1/8th of a second durations on each picture. So if your video is something like 30 frames/second, you can get 30 pictures down into that second! The video will be extremely fast, yes, but also extremely smooth despite the size of your jumps, which is the attraction here.
