    So he did!

    The only other time I've seen something even remotely like that is the archived Half-Life LP. I'm sure the difference between the two is obvious :\/

    Oh, I remember that LP now.

    It's not terrible for a screen-shot (tee hee) LP.

    Too late, it's already done.


    What can I say, it was the only medium I had available at the time, and I really wanted to LP Dragon Force.


    You can see the difference in Hematophila's LP that he started and never finished, as he used a more direct method.

    (As am I for MKR.)

    I just figured out one of the merits of an action RPG like Demon's Souls is that while waiting for people to respond in a thread you can post between-sets filler videos of doing silly shenanigans that doesn't progress the game.

    Heavily edited, of course.

    Also, I have some questions regarding rendering/conversion speeds and video editors.

    I'm not using Mediacoder yet. I know, I'll get on that. BUT, how long does Mediacoder take to convert say, 3 gigabytes of M2TS files to WMV files with the following properties?
    Video: WMV 9, 1280x720 resolution, 8192 Kbps, 29.97 fps.
    Audio: WMA 9, 128 Kbps, 44100 Hz.

    Secondly, what video editors do people use to put things together? How long do the video editors you use take to mash up media clips into a video with something similar to the following properties?
    Audio: 64 Kbps, 44,100 Hz, 16 Bit, Stereo.
    Video: 29.970 fps, 1280x720, Quality VBR 90, WMV V11 Compression.

    (also I'd use a different media format than WMV but my codecs ran away and/or broke up with my editing software)

    I FUCKIN' LOVE SCANLINES

    cj if you ever petition for a name change and Tube gets around to doing them and he flips that coin, I'm going to make the suggestion he change your name to Scanlines if he ends up with tails. :^:

    Okay, on to serious business. I want to reiterate something for people.

    I've been on this forum for 7 years, and in like half a year it'll have been 8. I dig this community. It's gone through changes lots, but the last 2 / 3 years has been the most stable iteration (as far as G&T goes). This place is great. There's good folks here. There's folks that appreciate the community like I do, more or less. There's people who want to get engaged with the community or come here. There's folks who want to show us things, new or current faces. Because I love this community, I welcome new faces. I welcome what they come to bring if it isn't a blind "look at my shit!" pitch. I welcome long-standing / current members trying out something new. Sometimes things aren't great, sometimes things suck. Regardless of quality, I like to highlight what people do on this forum which is why I made this thread to begin with. Good or bad, folks are trying something out to entertain us, or themselves, and clearly want to share it with us.

    And because this community is rad I think we can help each other out, or new faces, to get on par with whatever is agreed upon to be good. And if things don't get better or just are bad, we can help people realize that they should try something else.

    The tl;dr of this is that I'm just reminding folks to be excellent to each other and new people. Be constructive, be critical, be helpful. You shit on this community, and I will shit on you (aka narc, and maybe like not like you anymore). Like seriously. I'm talking brown chunks of doodoo in your Christmas stocking this holiday season. Or I'll blow out your Hanukkah candles or something if you don't do Christmas, I dunno, I haven't thought that far ahead.

    For a while there I thought you were building up to you announcing your leave from the forums, don't scare me like that, Henroid.

    And yeah, being excellent to people is the mark of a true gentleman.

    On a more positive note, Retsupurae updated!

    I saw on their twitter feed that they do indeed have a new episode up, it pleased me. I think they realized you can only do so much of what they do before it gets repetitive maybe.

    Also, only two things will make me leave the forum:
    1) I die
    2) I somehow have one-too many kids and devote my time to family instead of this

    ... The second one I'd still cheat my way to be here a bit.

    Whatever the reason, be it RL stuff or not wanting to burn out, I'm cool with them taking their time.

    Yeah I'm not about to be one of those raging fans getting mad at people for not keeping up with things on some regular schedule. Unless it's how you make your living, whatever, when it's ready it's ready. This applies to actual LP's now that I think about it. Cue Rent!

    Also I felt like the thread title needed some jazz.

    why the hell are your videos 3 gigs

    is that after de-interlacing and are they roughly 45 minutes long? then yeah i could see that

    either way to transcode and compress per video, it takes 3-5 hours, but that's for 3-pass at 2000 Kbps

    Each of my videos is about 20-45 minutes in length

    On a serious note I know I'm very grumpy about LPs a lot but it's because I truly love the medium

    Also I'd like to think that even though my views are more extreme than most I articulate them fairly well

    plus hen has no qualms calling me a douchebag either privately or openly and he hasn't yet so I think I'm doing pretty good :P

    Also also I hold myself to the same standards that I hold others to. Haven't missed an update on my AW LP, for instance >.>

    I followed. Didn't really mind, and I think you're generally a cool guy cj so I didn't bring it up. Anyway, I have a whole bunch of ideas for LPs, but I don't have the resources. I hope to fix that sometime this year.

    EDIT: I guess I should ask what would be the forum's recommendation for hardware/software for capturing video from a TV.

    EDIT 2: Oh dur, link to SA. Unless people have better recommendations.

    It requires a shit ton of tweaking basically. Wasnt easy to sort. And no 60hz mode either.
