In Topic: Video distribution channels

If it were me doing it, I'd opt for building a website using an open source digital goods ecommerce solution or wordpress plugin that takes the payment and allows for download of the files and advertise.

Of course you would, hahaha! Lookit this sexy bitch wavin' his skillz around like a stripper. My pockets ain't deep enough for your high style life. ;)


All I really want is video streaming with a paywall. Gumroad seems to be able to pull that off, although it might not look great. I doubt there's a perfect non-custom solution, but I also doubt I want to front the kind of cash I imagine it takes for a custom build.


Thank you so much for the suggests!

C4D mograph solution it is! 

Additional question, though, and even more of a brain fart: If you've got a cloned grid of objects, is there an effector setup that would allow them to "blink" into existence semi-randomly, like a bunch of fluorescent bulbs all trying to turn on? Embarassingly, i can't seem to wrap my head around this simple problem. It's been a while since I C4Ded.

Look at you lovely people, with your readymade solutions. Tried the shape layer repeaters, the hextex, and mylenium's ballsy custom rig. Pretty great. But indeed, it's probably going to have to be a C4D mograph solution, I fear.

In Topic: Stupidly large screen

16 November 2014 - 07:30 AM

At a certain point, if it's still sitting on your desk, the actual size of the monitor is so big that you find your eyes and head ping-ponging from one side of it to the other just to follow your mouse. And the distortion at the edges, just due to your extreme viewing angle, isn't helpful either. So there's sort of a useful limit to desktop monitor real estate unless you have the deepest desk in existence. The second monitor setup is still a neck-swiveling solution, but if you have all of your important stuff directly in front, and accessories/palettes off to the side, it's pretty decent. I think the situation where a 40"+ monitor is helpful is when you're mirroring on-screen content for an audience, like in an edit or flame bay.


4k and 5k monitors are availalble now, and at sizes that are still pretty useful. They're not dirt cheap, but if precision matters to you, and it should, that's probably going to work out better than a huge bargain basement screen.

In Topic: this week's visual piece ...

I really like the quality of the imagery. What sort of techniques are you using for the datamoshing?


I think you'd get a lot more mileage out of the images you're creating if you considered more what each image means in the context of those surrounding it. You know, creating a progression... a narrative, however loose. What you have now is really a sequence of random images of war and some stuff about worship in one section. But they don't really seem to mean much together. And the glitch is so evenly applied to everything, that everything tastes the same. And of course that's fine, it certainly works as background visual accompaniment for your live shows, but once it's played as a standalone short film or music video, presented as something to be seen start to finish, the viewer is going to require a little more out of the experience.
