New releases and general discussions.

[quote="Lost my Keys":pm5cpzzh]Though I honestly think there wont be an issue for users to view it on youtube, since a 720p video on there will have a number of lower versions to watch, and nobody should have any trouble viewing it in the lowest setting if they have a slow connection (depending on their settings, it may pick the smallest resolution for them, or highest if they can watch better). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8OnfLEDAcB4 and this one explains what I was saying before, how youtube will add black bars to 4:3 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mDRYnaajUcY[/quote:pm5cpzzh]

Okay, we'll make in 720p. What background will be in 4:3 games? Or there is no background, only black bars?

You could try both, black pillar box bars, or some plasma like effect in them to frame the 4:3 video, unless that ends up distracting too much from the clips (or maybe a variation of your cog intro?). Or maybe add various construct related slogans.

But definitely use your cog intro for the start of the video, because that would fit perfectly! :)

Do you think we need to use the intro at the start?

I had a idea: video begins with that we run the program and begin to make a game. It's quickly created (within 5-10 sec) and we are starting to play it. This moment shows how easy is to make games with Construct. Then after the first game we see a demonstration of other games, and at the end we show the viewer what it's a program (run the cog intro). Also we can insert words on a black screen between the clips, for example: "Create your world with Construct" , etc.

What do you think?

Yep I think an intro at the start would look good, very grand looking. :)

I like the idea of showing quickly how easy it is to make a game too. I think it'll surprise a lot of people at just how simple it really can be, and it was certainly one of the things I didn't quite believe when I first heard of construct. So it'll be good to show people for real. :) But not Ghost Shooter k? LOL.

I like the ideas though, I think it's gonna end up looking great. Showing both simple games and complex ones, so people who see it can see it's not limited to just basic things.

I am so glad my last two demos were at 720P resolution. :D

Will start capping videos pronto!

While I think it's a good idea to show how easy it is to make a game in construct, I'm not sure it should be a part of this video. I think this video should be a showreel only, and there should be another video showing how easy it is to make a game.

I would like to talk about music . What music will we use in the video? What genre? May be you know site where we could find and download music for noncommercial use (licensed under Creative Commons Attribution or Attribution Non-Commercial, but not Share-Alike)?

If we don't find anything suitable, I can try to write music.

I think something classical/instrumental is a must. Nothing too loud, no rap, rnb, heavy metal etc. and certainly no pop songs. Those would often be binned instantly when people used to send in demo reels at companies I worked at, and they generally get a negative reaction. But something instrumental I think would work.. unless it's requiem for a dream, cause everyone uses that lol. There's a few I can think of that work well for showreels etc. but they're all copyright so no use to us. Since youtube would take the audio off knowing them heh.

Something custom would be fun, there's a few musicians on the forum (but they tend to like remaining hidden for some reason), would be nice if they could get involved in some way?

What do you think about Jamendo? I visited their site and tried to understand their tricky Creative Commons license, but failed. Has anyone been there? Do you know can we take their music for noncommercial use?

On Jamendo you want CC license number 3. Free to use as long as credit is given.
This should take you there:
[url:1m36d99q]http://www.jamendo.com/en/albums?license_class=cc_standard&license_maxrights=sa&license_minrights=by+c+d[/url:1m36d99q]

This guy also has some good stuff, and a similar license (credit given)
[url:1m36d99q]http://incompetech.com/m/c/royalty-free/[/url:1m36d99q]

Its where I got the music for the demo I submitted.
Also Sprach Zarathustra.mp3 by "Kevin MacLeod".
