Thanks WS, it's a new looking site since I was last there.  I actually stopped using them a while back, altho they still pay me royalties, they stopped reviewing new work I submitted, so for the few songs they were using it was a waste of time.

Wow, talking about Soundclick.  I'd forgotten about that site.  That was where all my earliest uploads went.  I'm kinda amazed it is still going after all this time.  I'll have to check out the site properly as there used to be some interesting stuff on there.

Oh, and of course, mail them using their online form, just to be safe.....  ;)

I don't use/visit MooMoo, Buster, but on checking their site, I see no notices regarding changes.
I'd, maybe, email them to ask, letting them know about the mail you have.

Anyone received an email from MooMoo Music claiming to have a new site and to reset your password?..and do you know if it's legit or not?

I found my old Soundclick page so perhaps it gets loaded occasionally?  :o

I was looking for the Soundclick pages too - I guess they must get closed down if they are not used for a few years :-[

I will go through my bu drives today too Smurf. I think all I have is the info for each Challenge I used to set up the archives originally. Pretty sure I didn't save any songs as I figured they were all in the archives. Weird about the Soundclick pages going missing too...

Well then.  Had to go do some work at a school this evening, and got wrapped up in their Christmas Party.  One of the students was performing.  Acoustic, electric, and slide.  Not a bad player or singer.

They offered food, but I had to work on stuff...

When the site got hacked a couple months or so ago, that was wiped out.  Song files, software, everything.  Now I have to rebuild a facility for that, but I don't have copies of all the archived songs...

In the "Additional Menu" above the shoutbox, Red, you'll see an option for "ODC Archives".  That was a place I set up to store archives from all our ODC challenges...

At Our Favorite Price Point™....Video Stuff?!
« on: August 07, 2014, 09:23:43 PM »
 I have been playing around with some video and, of course, looking for free stuff that works. ATM I am using a Dell 17" core2Duo 2.50GHz with 4GB memory, so the stuff also has to be system friendly.....

I have settled on some that works OK, and is semi-easy to figure out...

1. Lightworks 11.5.1 - The free version makes you sign in every week, and only exports at "you tube" 720p level, but this version of the software runs solid. It is NOT a program that you will jump into & go, it works different than any of the "commercial" ones I have used. Grab all the free tutorials from the site, including the Dialog Demo Project, and you will have a grip in no time.

2. VSDC Software - VSDC Free Video Editor, Converter, and  Screen Recorder software are also not a "jump in and go" type of software, but all 3 work great. The Editor's Green Screen is the best free one I have used, and Screen Recorder software is way ahead of  Camstudio, both in ease of setup and video file.

And what good is this stuff without something to play with? Well, I found about a 3rd of the sites That Are Listed On This Page before I found the page, but it is still nice to have them all in one place. A couple are no more, but most, including the Blender projects, are still active.

The first one I found was Valkaama. I gabbed the HD version of the completed film, watched it, and started the downloads. The downloads include ALL the takes used in the movie, so you try your had at Producing & Editing a real movie, script, posters, DVD case & label....everything...INCLUDING Scoring it.....

It took me over 2 weeks to grab the 176GB of files, but it is going to be SO worth it to play with.

Did I mention that most all the movie footage listed is licensed under the  Creative Commons
Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported (CC BY-SA 3.0)
, making it absolutely free to use in any way you want to? You can use clips from them in YOUR Music Videos, Movies, etc..and most you can also make $$ with.. :o..outstanding!  :P

Anyway, I just wanted to share. If any of this has been posted elsewhere, please ignore me, I have been out of touch for a few and am sure I have missed a ton.  :'(

Enjoy!!  8)

Howdy folks, it's good to see ya! I miss the place, but life has got in the way at the moment.....

And it figures that an hour after I post about Lightworks I start getting the same error that I have got every time I have tried it...

No Media Drive  :o

It keeps losing the link to it....Grrrrrr.. >:(..I LIKE Lightworks, but this is driving me nuts.... ???

Oh well, back to trying to figure it out.... :P

And if it worse comes to worse I have Magix Video Pro 5 to fall back on, but I hate installing Magix's bloat on my system! ;D  8)
