    I think it would be cool to have a video section

    Post by Yesuurd on Thu Mar 22, 2012 12:22 pm

    Not videos you find on the web but videos you have yourself made, also want to know how many people can record videos and go to FC for example, videos are a great way to add and communicate things that words cannot portray by themselves.

    I am a CG artist, I work in animation, motion graphics and use programs like after effects, maya and started
    out as a video editor, also proficient in photoshop and ilustrator amongst other programs.

    If anyone needs something edited, or needs input on what components to buy for recording.

    I am looking into what I can buy to record some videos also.

    you know this would have been a decent idea to put on your "idea for changes to the forum" section? Or is your first response even more ingenious? silly

    lol, nope I think this one is better, you know how one cannot come up with everything at once and things slip by to find you later, weird thing is I have been thinking about this a long time, but anyways posted it here since being a mod or not it is still something that would add to our community.

    lol, true that.

    guess you wait for Fex to come along and state her opinion on the idea silly

    then again if we have a youtube section, there would just be an entire thread dedicated to Epicnamebro's guides to Dark souls, and our opinions on how to do bosses would be redundant almost lol

    I think a Video section would be cool also. Videos tend to get buried when the post goes dry and new members may never know they even exist. Like Yesuurd stated sometimes they are better at conveying a message or scenario better than the written word. It also may be as simple as installing a youtube mod into the forum code...( errr mod codes sometimes aren't that simple..lol)

    I agree, someone asked yesterday how to get the eagle shield and where it was in blighttown. We tried to answer but we absolutely couldnt do it very well. Then someone just posted a couple of videos and it was like... wow, that was so much simpler and better too :|

    Yesuurd,

    Let me run the idea by the admins. I am not sure if our current set-up would support video hosting, but maybe there are other options.

    We try and keep the amount of forums to a minimum to avoid making things too fragmented or confusing and to make moderation smoother. When we decide to expand it is normally to accomodate growing trends in interests. Like with Covenants, we noticed an increase in those topics and a growing interest in events, etc. It was natural to give it its own home. We'll keep an eye on videos, however.

    If it is eventually given its own home, we would really love to see as many forum users' homemade vids as possible. I would be interested in knowing how many community members are able/willing to make their own vids.

    Thanks Baal and Emergence

    for showing up and voicing(or to be mor accurate textig) your thought I appreciate it.

    Whichever way if it is convenient and plausible should be interesting to explore.

    I already know Wade is currently making his own playthrough videos, looking forward to them happy

    I'm sure if a section is created then people willing to create videos would start popping up

    Where is Reperfan with the polls?

    So what I understand from Emergence is:

    Seems this idea would work if enough members are willing to do videos,
    very understandable also, since it would be a waste of space to have
    a section that doesn't have movement, just clogging the forum.

    I don't think we would have enough storage to host the videos here. There is an image gallery hosting but it is very limited.

    We could of course create a videos tab or a wiki video channel dedicated to creating thematic playlists, but of course that would mean someone has to take charge of it silly

    Hi Fex,

    I should have clarified it makes no sense hosting at the site I am talking about a section on which you can embed youtube links from users but dedicated solely to user videos, it would be too much hassle to store them here and frankly I don't see the need.

    Thanks for coming in Fex.

    An area for me to post videos where I play with one hand and hold my Ipod with its record function in a dark room catching mostly my fire place in the shot, this is just what I'm looking for!

    Yeah sounds like a good idea to me, without the hosting on the site and just using Embeds instead. But you've already got that part covered, so I think I'll just slink back into the shadows with just my hand visible giving a thumbs up.

    Annoying when the post you wish to response to use your metaphor...

    You're like a dog chasing it's own tail with this one.

    I don't know anime, don't watch a lot (though I've seen afro samurai, not that) and the only samurai mangas I've read are Kenshin, Lone wolf and Cub and Vagabond... And of those none are what is in your avatar silly

    Care to enlighten me? happy

    Ninja Scrolls, one of the greatest of all I would say classics must watch along with, ghost in the shell and akira, if you want to watch it I recommend them.

    @Ted

    I suggested it but it got stuck on the idea of hosting, I still think it's a good idea to have a video area whith only embedding, but basically the admins need to know it will be used by us and not just be wasted space, so that's what basically happened.

    If we do a poll maybe they would consider it.

    In fact, thanks for posting...I will make the poll now and see once and for all if this would work.
