Still a lot of things to do.

Heh, to think that a while ago I said that the vid would be released by now.. I still haven't touched vegas (a video editing tool). Right now I'm watching/capturing footage from demos of players that didn't get through the world finals group stage (Chance, dkt, griffin, jibo, stermy, strenx). Since they didn't get to the playoffs they don't have many demos, so this will go fast.

Yesterday I've ran out of disk space, hah. Had to clean up to get additional 50 GB's but I'm not sure for how long will it last. Once I've captured all the footage I'll post some screens of my footage folder.

I wish I could already get to editing and putting everything together. Working with demos is such a pain. 

A while ago I thought I had the soundtrack settled but now it seems that I'll use something completely different. We'll see how it works out :)

I don't remember whether I've mentioned it earlier but I've entered the NoGhost Mapping competition #2. Just for fun, I don't expect anything. There are about 2 weeks left, it ends before QuakeCon, because one of the sponsors (AMD/ATI) wants to use the maps in their booth. So yeah, not a lot of time left and I've done almost nothing :D Well, I've made some attempts but in the end I wasn't happy about them. Recently, I've sketched a layout for a duel map and I want to finish it before the deadline. I plan to make the design simple, yet nice. We'll see if I'll find the time. It will be my first map :)

Alright, back to capturing footage!

Back to work!

Finally, holidays.

After a few days of delay and complete focus on reading a wicked manga called 'berserk' I'm back to work on the vid. As I write this post on my pc, on the laptop calipt is melting cypher with a plasma gun in slow motion as I render the lossless avi file. Today, along with my brother we've installed a new router and hence I finally have internet connection in both my PC and laptop.

Recently TEK9 announced another movie contest, it's not a mini movie contest like last time. Movie length must fit in between 3 and 7 minutes, rest of the rules do not differ from the usual tek9 set. I didn't sign up yet, but I surely will, but I'm not sure if I'll submit my currect project or rather the next one. As I posted before my next project will be a community movie. I already have the idea for the vid in my head, it will be a type of movie that you either love or hate. Soon I'll remind people about sending me the demos..

Alright, on my laptop calipt's plasma balls didn't leave much of cypher's body, time to get back to work!
