[RSMV] Cry For Help - Shinedown



Personally, I loved how this video turned out. It was my first time hosting a MEP with people and it was great fun, this will definitely not be my last time *hints*. I learnt a lot of tips and tricks from other people in video-making and rendering, and we helped each other out in making the most out of our parts. Even though we met some difficulties (such as uploading to the wrong site, not meeting deadlines, forgetting to add a icon on their video, accidentally deleting all my clips), we forgave each other and just helped each other overcome these major obstacles. I really liked doing this, and I hope hope you guys enjoy the video as much as we did creating it.

RSMV Tutorial - Emote Syncing and Formations.


Hey guys, what's going on?
There are numerous emote syncing formations which people use, to stand out from the crowd, creating one creative is essential for the video to look catchy and interesting. These include picking out elements and aspects of Layers - who stands in front, who rests/sits, etc - Symmetry and Alignment. All of these are as important as one another.

I will explain formations from worst to best. Here.

Emote-Syncing Guide for ACTORS - Tips and Tricks

Hey guys, what's going on?
As many of you know, Emote syncing plays a major element in video-making to show collaboration, teamwork, and has a more powerful influence compared to having one actor. For me, emote syncing is a must-have mainly due to the fact that I consider video-making to be a job done with friends rather than myself. 

Alot of people find it friggen hard to sync emotes as I have noticed, probably due to the fact that haven't lost their emote-syncing-virginity yet. This guide will show you tips and tricks and some secrets behind emote-syncing!

Emote-Syncing Guide for VIDEO MAKERS - Instructions. Timing. Picking Actors.

Hey guys, what's going on.
Emote syncing takes a lot of time and patience. I as a videomaker do it because I feel it is fun to collaborate with my viewers and friends. It is an activity that is fun to participate in, but frustrating when you do not get your desired result. If you wish to sync emotes, it may take a long time to gather the people you need, and to find location, to tell the actors where to stand, and to actually sync the emote. But it's worth the time because in the end it is fun and interesting :D

Get a Awesome Cool Free Toolbar for Your Website

In the past, I have seen many different toolbars for website. Ones that allowed chat, ones that allowed search engines, ones that allowed useless gadgets to your site that noone ever uses and just lags your computer up. Recently, I have found a perfect solution. I first thought "not another one of these stupid toolbars", but after experiencing a few websites which use this to their advantage, I have decided to give it a shot. The toolbar I am talking about, is wibiya.

New Video! [RSMV] Hollywood - Cute Is What We Aim For

What's going on?



Chapter 1 - "Tempus"

DECIDE WHAT HAPPENS NEXT : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ae9VKF...

If This Love This Hate was Windows XP (http://bit.ly/thislovethishate), and Crushcrushfaint was Windows Vista (http://bit.ly/Crushfaint), this would probably be Windows 7.

I tried editing this video is a simple and smooth editing style. As a result, this may not be what you have expected from me.

Statistics
Emote Sync Clips*: 204
Project Start : March 5th 2010(GMT)
Project End : April 10th 2010 (GMT)
Project Upload: April 11th 2010 (GMT)
Time of Creating RSMV(d): 36 Days
Time of Creating RSMV(h): 70-80 hours
Editing Application: Sony Vegas Pro 8.0
Filming Application: Fraps 2.9.8
Other Application(s): Photoshop CS4

*3 or More people

This video is, to current date, the project which consumed the MOST time, even though the editing was relatively simple and clean. I also believe that this song shows, in many areas, my stance in the Runescape Music Video community, the change we are facing - the act of having high expectations, judging whether one's work is overedited or not, when the editor did it for the sole purpose of enjoyment for him/herself, and possibly, others as well. If, however, you are against my view, simply consider this video as a normal Runescape Music Video, and keep your thoughts to yourself. If, on the other hand, you support our community - Feel free to Spread the message in any means possible :).

ALLEGORY
This Music Video, I hope, would allow us to reflect on how our RSMV community have advanced over the years. I believe that most of the lyrics represent the way I feel on the early years of the RSMV community (age of innocence) and the current state our community is facing (the way we're living makes no sense). The values of video-making which used to be for Education, Experiment, and Entertainment, have now changed to for Statistics, Popularity, and Fame. I just hope that this video would remind us all the true definition of video-creating - "There are no limits to imagination, only imagination as the limit" Chester (Plasticfunnel)

There is nothing wrong with improving and advancing, it's human nature. Though the true purpose of editing videos, would never change (for me at least) = "Videos were never about being famous or being criticized by others, they're about having fun and making something that you gave your best effort in." - Jess (Chaoshero33)

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

STORYBOARD
There are two main characters in the story. One being the Old Sklebr from Year 169, another being the Young Sklebr from Year 137 (whom would be referred to by their year of origin). 169 wished to return to the past, back to the age of innocence (a motif symbol to the previous generations of RSMV). 137 supposedly presents what the "age of innocence" has to offer to the viewers through the song "When the value wasn't in the price", etc. However, half-way through, 137 realizes 169's presence (though he has no idea that it was his older self), and realizes the presence of the Time Travelling Portal. Since then, 137 wishes to "get older, don't fight my age" and leaves through the Time Travelling Portal and is seen lost in the future of Year 169. Leaving 169 in the Past abandoned, lonely, and unable to return...

NOTE: This music video is part of a series, sequels will be created - your ideas would be appreciated in the Comments below.

Creating a Awesome Wallpaper in Photoshop




This is a guide on how to create awesome wallpaper with the good use of color, brushes and nice fonts.

Step 1. Decide on where you are going to place certain elements of text and colors
Step 2. Play around with brushes
Step 3. Export Wallpaper as JPEG


Step 4. Use Wallpaper.

A good use of brushes would be to first scribble around on a new layer of the template, then eventually use eraser tools to remove and hint elements.
