Flash was supposed to be dead by now, White, but it's hanging in there.  Quite a few places still using it.

And they do come out with security updates quite often now, which was supposed to be the downfall.

I thought Flash was on it's way out. Several browsers are not bothering with it..... Not before time, in my opinion.....

Easy fix.  Everybody here gets together, creates a song that sells to Hollywood for a small fortune, then everybody here gets a new computer and software of choice.

Hey, could happen.   8)

Firefox allows a slightly newer version that is still above the minimum standard, but even that is going to expire soon.....thanks a bunch Microsoft for stopping support so the developers follow like sheep lol it's not so much the OS I object to, it's having to buy a new computer that will run it...

Didn't you know FX? Once there's enough spinners spinning they'll generate a standing wave which will blank out your hard drive....it's a cunning plan....

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)
