    We want Taran back!

    There's nothing stopping me from writing and hosting more videos... except that there have been no interesting products for me to review for awhile. I've tried to get more ebikes, but companies have not been willing to send them. There's a cool keyboard converter dongle thingy that i am hoping to review sometime soon. It may be much better than luamcaros. Also, if I had to write a video or two every week, they would not be nearly as good. I'd be stretched too thin.
  3. Hello kids, The macros definitely save time. I'm putting out the same amount of videos, but now I also have to review every single video that we release. I mark it up with suggestions and/or mandatory fixes and send it back to the original editor. They make the fixes, watch it again themselves, send it to me, and then I have to watch the whole thing again as well. That's for Floatplane videos. I also have to watch every YouTube version as well. So I must watch all videos we put out at LEAST twice. Sometimes a video bounces back and forth several times before it's good to go, especially if a sponsor is involved and they ask for even minor changes at the last minute... We've caught a lot of errors in this way, but the process can take a long time. Add to that the fact that before they are exported, my own videos must be reviewed with the writer, (and then changes/fixes are made) and then also with either Linus or Nick Light, (acting as a sort of editor-in-chief for the whole channel) and only THEN can I export the video (which takes a lot longer now that we use 8K R3D footage on a 4K timeline) and then of course, I have to review my own video exports as well. On some days, I've spent literally half the day just reviewing videos. So yeah. Having my macro keys and various scripts, and having discovered smart rendering, means that I'm able to work quickly with the time that I have left after all of my other duties. And I'm still able to put out 1 video a day if I need to. BTW, the other editors do use some of my macro keys - these ones in particular: I wrote this out while waiting for a video to render - it's a very natural time to take a break or do lower-priority tasks.
  4. No case of Spoon Theft now?! xD

  5. Bleh, the Lego boost... I'm not seeing anything that excites me about it. Weird how Lego Group has WeDo, WeDo2.0, now Boost, .... AND the Mindstorms lineup. I'm getting pretty sick of all these "educational" toys for kids that are just expensive, and don't teach much. So, what, is Boost supposed to bridge the "gap" between WeDo and Mindstorms? I don't think that's necessary. I'm not even so convinced that WeDo is necessary...

    [VIDEO EDITING] "Warping"?

    Yeah, optical flow only works well for simple, slow moving stuff. Like pans and tilts. And it gets very confused by cuts.

    Any mouse suddenly won't work on my laptop

    Hello sir, terribly sorry for the trouble. I have a shoot first, ask questions later approach to problem solving. I'll EVENTUALLY figure things out, but not without some chaos along the way. Your problems are almost certainly being cause by Interception. Here's the thing: Unless you pay for the commercial licence, which is $2,200, your computer is now limited to only 10 of each device type (as shown in your device manager) I did not know this until a few weeks ago, when I did some digging, after having odd problems of my own, and hearing about problems like yours. Since then, I've updated the description on that video, with instructions for how to uninstall. It's very easy. You just follow the same steps, but type /uninstall rather than /install. Also, you have to delete keyboard.sys from system 32, first, if it doesn't work because that file is "busy." No, it's not a joke. Don't worry, keyboard.sys is not a normal Windows file -- your keyboard will work fine afterwards. I'm going to make a follow up video with these instructions. Again, sorry for the trouble!
  8. i THINK it didn't actually make it into the final edit. He was screeching at me BTW. LOL
  9. wait, THERE'S A NEW ASDFMOVIE? oh hai guys

    LMG now shooting with 8K cameras?

    We don't even know how to do it yet. RED footage is freakin huge and Premiere is not great with it. Even just importing it can lead to problems. attaching proxis often doesn't work. Viewing at 1/4 or 1/8th resolution works well on my computer, not as well on some others. Premiere can't even SORT the footage in alphanumeric order. How hard is that, Adobe?? But daaaaayum does the footage look good.

    87-key Macro Keyboard

    SUP GUYS, So there's been some interesting discussion in this thread. But I haven't yet looked into everything you guys have proposed yet. But I've seen a lot of "solutions" that basically just involve BUYING something. That's just not the Taran way! I've been poor most of my life, so I'm used to having to come up with innovative ways to do things with little to no money. What makes the 2nd macro keyboard mod so great is that you can do it with basically any spare keyboard that you already have lying around. However, I've never been totally satisfied with LuaMacros. It has a lot of problems. So I've come up with a much BETTER solution that uses INTERCEPTOR, an apparently amazing program that can do all sorts of cool things. And I've finally made a tutorial that explains the method I've been using for awhile: It's far more stable, doesn't require a stupid txt file to work, allows more rapid keypresses, AND even works with modifier keys.

    I have personally gotten cancer from a few of our own thumbnails. Yes, some of em are bad. I aint naming names. But we have to do some experimentation before we can settle down into a nice routine and consistent look. Go look at Austin's thumbnails: https://www.youtube.com/user/duncan33303/videos I think he does a really good job. Lots of pastels. There's certainly a "look" to them. I've been experimenting with the use of pure white as a 'background' to make the subject pop out... Also vignettes... Also colorizing the background to make the subject stand out more... that one seems to work pretty well, and it also pretty simple and easy to do. I'm pretty proud of the Wave 2.0 thumbnail, since it IS quite colorful and clickable, but also summarizes the review itself ("it's trash.") and sticks with the spirit of the review. This one was Linus' idea. I've made it a point to try and stop us from making an : O face for every thumbnail. That gets old quick. WHY AM I EVEN IN THIS THREAD HELLO PEOPLE.
