official & yotube WMG problem

most of you know it already, i registered

it was basically free. basically meaning, i'm paying for this webspace since 2004 anyways. there used to be a crappy homepage, but in this days and ages, the webspaced is mostly used to exchange porn with eflixx. i checked and realised that i have free urls.

so far it's only the logo on there, leading to this blog. i think a full blown homepage would be too much. the blog works as it is, everyone can access it and blog etc. but it's good for videos and stuff. and maybe we have like member profiles on there, so, let me know what you think.

on another note, last night before editing my new video i checked if the song i wanted to use is on youtube. i found it in the search, but the link to the video got me to: "This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by WMG. Skipped to the next available video. "
so i was fucked. eflix told me what he read on the interweb. get audacity load up your song and change the pitch. i pitched it like 2%. faster that is, slower sounds weird. and it worked, no muting.

i cut out a part of the song as well, that may be another factor. i don't know.
i know there is the other method but apparently it doesn't work all the time and i don't want to "overuse" it.

EA skate. - Hungry Hungry Hippos (milkybarkidd)

Some truly cool glitches--- and I believe the first true single hippie flip, glitch or not? -- You be the judge... it's @ 2:28, and it's not a late flip.

Day 1 @ Bobby D's

just kind of randomly threw all this together

WoW - Onyxia Wipe animation

A video of World of Warcraft dialogue put to animation-- funny, for us skaters, note when he slides the credit card down the asscrack of the girl--- "tailslide" (oh well, it was tailswipe, but it's still funny)

growth - new schnavolda solo

a little something to shorten the waiting time for the "i <3 dp".

time to dust off the wii

the reviewer is, well, not really funny, but you'll get the point.


so, how far is everyone? tno, eflix, schnavolda and me are practically done. little tweaks here and there, nothing big. what about the rest?

animation test

just a quick test.

sorry friends, i desperately need a change. i need to put my obsession with ea skate behind me, or atleast put it on the backburner for a while. it has consumed me way too much, and its eating up the rest of my life, i need time to rebuild stuff, get things in perspective so to speak. i guess ill be putting out some stuff later, but right now the ea skate edits dont give me anything, no stoke, no joy.. sorry.

you can have my teamvid part, but thats the last edit ill make in a while, i got lots of footy, but i dont feel like editing it anymore. ill throw it on youtube unedited tonite, just to get it out of my hands. again, im sorry, but this is what i feel i have to do right now.

later, dear friends.

this is how we roll

  • each part will be 1.30 min long, so we have 13.5 min and have time to focus on a good intro & outro
  • part should fade from and to black
  • IMPORTANT: if you use gayreel, turn off the watermark
  • the resolution of the full will be 640x360 widescreen. if you don't know how to do this 640x480 (skatereel resolution) will be fine, eflix will crop the black bars
  • eflix will compile all the parts, he will also put in the names and stuff, so don't worry about that. if you wanna have your name at a certain spot in the pic, tell him.
  • upload your part private on youtube or megaupload. this way everyone can watch everyone's part and see if it needs improvement or if we hit the same spots etc.
  • for the intro/outro we will do online filming, like in tno's video. we'll talk about that online
  • this should be done in 2 weeks at the most. please start filming/editing asap.
  • we should think about the name, i think midnight mentioned "i <3 dp". i like that.

You know you film too much when...

You get the message in replay editor:
"You have reached the maximum capacity of saved replays"

Guess I finally need to get those GameBridged and taken off my console or I'm gonna have some trouble on my hands. I wonder if its a max 5 minutes of saved footage as well?

Oh well... going to sleep for now, & leaving you all with this picture that I entered a skatefluckit contest with for best photo... good day,sirs!

once again, another reason to be ashamed of being german,home-topspot

schnavolda, maeckes and team video

today's schnavoldas official first day with the team. give him a warm welcome

--> ea forums <-- --> skate.this <-- also, we gotta say goodbye to maeckes. good luck with your solo stuff or maybe a new team. i'm sure he will deliver.

apart from that, we should start filming for the first DP full lenght. shouldn't take as long as the last time. discuss:
  • lenght? over ten minutes? each part 1:30?
  • just solo filming or throw in some online stuff (i'd say yes)
  • release. i say we shouldn't need more than 2 weeks of filming.

let me know, EVERYONE! i'm not in the mood to ask the same questions over and over again, the blog/xbl are perfect platforms to discuss this.

raise da roof!

time to explore =)

jump off board, set a marker, then push RT + LT + Y + B at the same time
