  • [highlight][B]MAJOR UPDATE:[/B][/highlight] [h2]The collaboration is complete! It will be airing Monday, August the 20th at 7:30PM EST on the TruBlu Studios main channel (The link is under my username). Thanks to everyone that participated, you all did a great job![/h2] [B]Explanation:[/B] The concept is fairly simple, one person creates a video and shows it to another person who creates a follow up video, who shows it to another person who creates a follow up video and so on so forth until the last person finishes it off. An example of the final product would be something like [URL="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gFf8399UZMI"]this[/URL]. [B]Rules:[/B] 1. The minimum and maximum time limits are 10 - 30 seconds long. 2. You must have some level of expertise to enter. 3. Don't make your video too complicated, or too simple. 4. Make sure your entry carries the plot. 5. Watermark your entry. Be creative! [I]If you don't watermark your entry it will be done for you.[/I] 6. No music. 7: Make sure any sounds or dialogue you use end with your video. 8. Render your video, using these settings: [URL="http://filesmelt.com/dl/Settings_1.png"]1[/URL], [URL="http://filesmelt.com/dl/Settings_2.png"]2[/URL] [I]To insure the rules are followed I will be the middle man for all submissions. [/I] [B]How to Enter:[/B] Sorry we're closed. [I]This thread will be updated periodically to follow new entrants, the completion of entries, and showcase the final product.[/I] [B]FAQ:[/B] [I]Not all these questions have actually been asked[/I] Q: Are custom models aloud? A: [B]YES![/B] Just incorporate it into a TF2 map, or TF2 [I]esque[/I] map, and make sure it's available to everyone for free. Q: How do I submit my follow up video? A: Send me a private message with a download link to your [B]completed[/B] follow up video. Do not send me the .dmx file. Q: How will I receive the video I'm supposed to follow up on? A: Via private message. Q: I have a Youtube channel, how will people know my part is mine? A: When you send your follow up part, send me a link to your youtube channel. Your channel will be an annotation on your watermark, and listed numerically in the description. Q: Am I aloud to use custom sounds or dialogue? A: Yes, just don't recreate entire scenes. Make sure it carries the plot. Q: When is the collaboration actually start? A: Now!

  • [QUOTE=Erfly;36914511]So it's essentially the SFM version of GMOD tennis?[/QUOTE] Not exactly. The submissions will be shorter and all be in one video. It would be more like [URL="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gFf8399UZMI"]this[/URL].

  • I don't want to be first or second because I am not a good plot creator, but I can make a 10-30 second filler. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J-KKaBmfAIs[/media] [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oGHqGDBGhhI[/media]

Are you able to do that? I don't mean to sound condescending, but you said yourself you're not good at creating plots.

[editline]25th July 2012[/editline] TBH you should have them send you the dmx, or atleast require them to render it in a specific way in the FAQ, so not everyone has different quality. Also when sending you the file they should send you their youtube name so you can make an annotation to each clip linking to their channel, its only fair.

  • I'd be happy to join, but I don't know if I can make it on time. I'm on vacations, this isn't my PC and I'm not the only one using it. It depends when the deadline will be, to be honest.

  • Are we allowed to use custom assets? Nothing huge like models or maps, just effects and sounds and junk?
  • [QUOTE=Chaofanatic;36928881]Are we allowed to use custom assets? Nothing huge like models or maps, just effects and sounds and junk?[/QUOTE] Yes. Custom sounds or dialogue are aloud. Just don't recreate entire scenes.

  • I'd love to join, do we need an amazing amount of skill or just enough to get a point across?

  • Alright, cool! I'll see if I can scrounge together a showcase video. Most of my recent stuff is ugly, jittery, pony shipping stuff to get rid of my dumber subscribers, so I'll probably need to make something new to audition for this.
