Well, this is done (short film)

it kind of sucks.. lol. but it was fun to make! and most importantly, i learned a lot.

Trying to decide if i should attempt to whip something up quick for the Saxxy's now that i'm free'd up.

Psi, not sure if it's my video drivers, but when I try to watch this in 720p on YouTube, it's all pixulated. Like I say, I don't know if it is my end or not.

no, it's not just you. actually im asking the knowledgable people of facepunch about that right now... not sure what the deal is. I followed MaxofS2D's exporting/compiling method to a T. The actual video files on my computer don't look like that at all... only on youtube for some reason.

Though when i switch it to 720 it gets a little better... for me it's mostly the lower resolutions where it looks terrible.

what format did you upload in? Might private the first and try a reup to see if it was a YouTube glitch
Psi 12 oct 2013 à 13h49 
the finalized format once encoded ended up being something called "Matroska" with MPEG4 AVC / H.264 codec. Though on my PC it says it's a .mkv file.

TBH i don't even really know what any of that is, i was just following his tutorial for how to properly compress the .AVI file before uploading.

EDIT: btw this is the guide i'm talking about that i followed:

Thanks, doctor_Jack!

PTe Jack... one question... are you trying to watch it on youtube through Steam's browser? I often have a lot of trouble with their browser.

Can you try it in internet explorer or something else and tell me if it's still just as pixelated in 720?

Not sure if youtube supports HD conversion from mkv format. Is why I stick to mp4 and go.
Pte Joe 12 oct 2013 à 14h08 
Strike last... yup, I was... Went to youtube through IE and I had to refresh the HD a couple of times, but it seems to have worked...

Great job.

well im just disappointed with how the project ended. It's not fully what i envisioned.

SFM started acting really crazy on me... new particles i'd create would be disappeared whenever i re-load my save file, and SFM even stopped saving my work all together at one point which was really bizzarre. Somehow two days in a row i magically lost hours of work i'd done, even though i was saving properly the whole time. Then i had wanted to edit the map in Hammer, but apparently this map is locked by Valve from being decompiled so i couldn't.

Just had a lot of problems with this project. I guess i'm lucky to have anything to show for it at all.

****ing loved it.

The communications thing on Optimus' arm was an awesome touch. how did you do it?

When Kup says to finish him off? Bunch of different Light Gobo textures animated together.
