  1. just get something with macros. I use the K95 RGB with brown switches. they don't make it anymore.
  2. yeah. use wiggle, then below that, use posterize time. then you can even precomp that and speed it up if it's now too slow.
  3. 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.
  4. 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, e
  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...
  6. Yeah, optical flow only works well for simple, slow moving stuff. Like pans and tilts. And it gets very confused by cuts.
  7. 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.
  8. i THINK it didn't actually make it into the final edit. He was screeching at me BTW. LOL
  10. 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.
  11. 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 LuaMacro
  12. 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...
  13. Hey bros. Taran here. I just happened to see this topic and thought I'd respond. Edzel, Brandon, Dennis, and myself all went to BCIT together for Television/Broadcast in the same year. We all became friends during the two-year program, and now we get to work together as well. Here's one of the dumb projects we made during that time: When you see Nick (Van Berkel) acting mean towards Dennis, you're seeing it out of context. They are friends, and are currently roommates. Nick teases all of us for all sorts of things, that's just his personality. Guys who like each other will pret
  14. My doctor tells me that the jury is still out on whether or not you should do physical exercise, or allow yourself rest, when it comes to an injury like RSI. This whole experience has made me more wary of anything that ANYBODY has to say about RSI. In my experience, the right KIND of physical exercise has been much more helpful to me than "rest." Try my methods, sure, but be careful, go slow, and don't keep going if it hurts. (Keep in mind that there may be a delay of a few hours before the pain starts - that happened to me and it was tough to figure out what it was.)
  15. Hello friends. It's me, Taran! If you don't know me, I'm the one editing most of the LTT videos these days! I've had a few people on Twitter asking me why my TechQuickie video about RSI is no longer available for viewing. I can't respond in 140 characters, so I thought I would post here. Long story short: I was wrong. Let's start at the beginning. A few months after I started working for LMG, I started to suffer from painful RSI (repetitive strain injury) in both my hands. This lasted for about a year, and I even had to stop working for a few months so I cou
