Well, for this anim round only, of course ;)

What i mean is:
- announce the new topic "near" the regular date, Jan. 16, 2007
- take a relaxed attitude for submissions for "Dance" until 
Jan. 30, 2007 (instead of Jan.15), due to a certain delay on 
announcing it on ... hold it ... November 10th, 2006?

Hey, i'm just listening to the voices in my head, here ... 
and they're screaming "only 11 days left" ;)

Oh, almost forgot: Happy New Year 2007!

-Markus

When do we know for definitive if the 30th Jan is the final entry date? I've
started the final prodcution run for my render (i'tll take 5 days I think)
but if we have more time then I can make the content of the animataion
better.

Well, every round is unofficially extended until a human tells the 
server to stop accepting submissions.  That's how I entered the last round.

8 days as of this writing.  Scene 8 out of 11 is rendering (four hours 
left on that scene).  Scenes 9 and eleven will be easy.  Ten may take a 
couple of days to get right, but it will render quickly.

Regards,
John

Ah, Mr VanSickle what a stroke of genius it was of yours to come if with
characters that don't have legs!!! Not to mention the fantastic way of
giving them voices without sound... marvelous stuff.

Hope there are a decent number of entries this time round, I'd hate for my
entry to get listed in any of the winners just because there is <= 3
because being my first it really isn't upto story content standard of the
previous rounds.

Is it possible to enter multiple times, overwriting previous entries with
better versions if rendered in time?

Well, there's a mystery entry already on the server, i'm 
still trying to make one, and i guess we've an all but 
confirmed VanSickle movie on the radar...
Would all others planning to enter please step up, too...? ;)

> Is it possible to enter multiple times, overwriting previous entries with

Yes, that would be nice :) otherwise, i guess i'll have to 
fill in the missing scenes in my new epic with my scanned-in 
storyboard drawings - not a sight for the squeamish ;)

At least i've learned a LOT about my 3D software over the 
last two weeks... (updated C4D 9->10, all new shiny buttons, 
but WTF has the workflow i was used to gone...?! ;)

Oh, by the way: anyone knows if the "Blue Danube" is still 
copyrighted...? (hacking the sheet notes into GarageBand, 
not ripping some copyrighted recording!)

I was planning to enter this round, but spent all of last weekend trying to
wrap my head around the interactions among fake caustics, media, surface
properties, and light distance and strength.  I have provisionally
concluded that above- and below-water views of the same scene need to be
treated separately, effectively doubling my scene count and knocking this
animation from being difficult to get in by the original deadline to nearly
impossible to get it done properly by the proposed deadline extension.

Anyway, I could probably get a different animation in if I find out soon
that the deadline is to be extended as proposed and start right away.  I'm
willing to give it a shot, but it might not be right by those who keep on
top of these things, started earlier, and are already submitting their
entries.

Pardon me, but the Bugbot, TC, Joe, and the Greb all have legs.

As for voices without sound, if I could find a good free tool for 
putting sound into an MPEG, I'd use it.

Hey, feasting on weak rounds worked for me!

I don't see the admins having any problems with it.

John

Oh yeah, my apologies - legs with all the internal workings showing as well,
no slippage in sight ...

...... all I can say is sorry, I can only think that I'm distracted by the
absorbing and witty story lines.

Sure, but you really could choose to keep only the visual voices its not as
if they are inadequate.

(though I wish I hand't seen the dancing round, especially red dog, still
I'll submit what comes of out of my computer when it deigns to finish)

According to wikipedia it was first performed in 1867 and was written by 
J Straus (died 1899) so the score is well out of copyright :-) - I think 
copyright for european sheet music is 70 years after death of the author 
so you're ok.

There should even be some recordings out there that are out of 
copyright, which is 50 years for recorded music in Europe - although if 
the irtc server is in the US I don't know how US law applies to european 
recordings.

So as far as I can tell for some music it could be legal to use someone 
else's recording but not to do your own, which makes no sense. (I am not 
a lawyer or musician just curious and possibly wrong)

Hmm drifted well off topic here sorry.

Didn't know I had any of those...

The main drawback to having sound is that I'd need to gin up sounds for 
everything that should be making sound, or the effect wouldn't be that good.

John
