      Let's get a quick and simple question out of the way, which if possible could save me a bunch of time: is there a way to get an entire season of RvB in one big chunk off the DVD, without buying any additinal software?

      Ok, time for the technical help.

      I already know how to download the individual episodes and convert them and get them on my Ipod. That's easy. What I want is a nice, big file entitled "RvB: Season X", and have it play as one, long movie. I don't want to scroll through 100+ files.

      I have no other ideas than the one I just tried, which follows.

      I have Pinnacle Studio 12 and a video capture card. I put Season 1 into my 360, hooked it up to my capture card, and it 'Play' and 'Capture' and left it alone. I stopped the capture after the end credits, and I then (using Pinnacle) converted the raw video files into mpeg-4. I synced it to my Ipod, and at first, I thought i was a genuis. It played perfectly, just like a DVD player....right up until 20 minutes in, about where Church assigns Caboose to guard the flag, the video suddenly speeds up, like it's in fast forward. The audio continues like nothing happened, but suddenly the video is blurring past.

      I tried to fast forward to a new part, but when I released the FF button, it suddenly skipped forward in 30 minute segments to 2:30:37. The video file is 1:16:32. The video continued at a fast forwarded pace, somwhere around Episode 9, while the audio was still around Episode 4.

      What the hell?

      Technical help, ideas on how I can get entire seasons onto my Ipod, any of that would be etremely helpful. Posts that have you verbally abusing my request for help would not be.

      Thanks in advance. smiley0.gif

      I've been gone for a reeeeeeeeaaaaally long time. And now the Red VS. Blue fever has returned, although god knows where it went.

      So, who am I now than the person who left he site several years ago? I'm Andre. I play the drums. I am a 1st Lieutenent and C.O. of one of the companies in my Halo Clan, the Anstice Brigade. I live two hours south of R.T. H.Q., and I plan on making a trip up once I get my liscense. Music is very importent to me.

      And I was also the first person to publicly announce that Gary was the Gamma A.I.


      ^----------proud (called it 4 monthes in advance. Those are skills.)

      So, I'm glad to have rejoined the community. Long story short.

      Hey everyone. I'm trying to make a very simple .gif in Photshop Elements, just a bunch of still shots with text on them, one after another. How would I do that? A detailed tutorial would be nice, and I might be happy enough to cough up around a dozen mods...

      Later in the mini-series, York's AI mentions Wyoming underwent mental damage after his AI, Gamma, removed itself from his system, and York mentions he had a penchant for knock-knock jokes.


      I got this off WIkipidia, and as I read it, three things instantly snapped to mind:

      1. Gary the computer loves telling knock-knock jokes.

      2. The A.I. that removed itself from Wyoming was named Gamma.

      3. And A.I.'s name is a rough comparison to it's designation (ex. Omega=O'Malley, Delta="D")

      Gary is Gamma!

      I feel like a staulker.

      I see you, Burnie.

      I think I found the building they work in. By accident. I'm in a state of shock.

      Burnie, I'm not fucking around. i really do see you.

      Sorry, a little Fullmetal Alchemist moment there.

      Update in my Life (not that you actually care): I've slacked off on my art almost to the point of nothingness. School and home life is really crappy right now (and has been for a while).

      But the topic of tonight: Malls. When was the last time you went to the mall? WHatever your answer, it's been too long. You need to go again. Not because it's an awesome expeirience, but because the mall SUCKS!

      I'm serious. The only reason I go to the mall is to get haircuts and score points with my girlfriend ( smiley8.gif ). Every mall on the globe is exactly like a highway: congested, clogged, and really, really fucking nasty. I live in Texas, and that means a lot of fat Mexican woman with lot's of cleavage. (In reality, it's not that many, but the few who do show up draw my attention away fom te hot chicks).

      The next time you enter one of these reeking hellholes, look around and count how many people are actually carrying a bag. I did, and even with my horrible memory, I was easily able to remember it: 42. And that's out of what, a thousand? THere were so many people, you actually had to walk on the right side of the aisles, and if you wanted to get to a shop on the left, you had to go to the end of the aisle, and make a fucking U-Turn.

      So, how do you live you life without going to the mall? Easy.

      It's really simple: GO TO A STORE. Clothes? Go to Kohls. Books and Music? Barnes and Noble. Games? It's called Gamestop, moron.

      If your so desperate for a social life that you have to hang out at the mall...well, it sucks for you. Try making some friends that ren't as stupid as you.

      I just realized that I don't have any current pictures of me. The ones in my Images are so old.....

      I got my N64 a few days ago, and so far, I've played the crap outa Super Smash Brothers and Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

      It was really fun to play some old-school classics, but I do have to bitch about 'em:

      1. Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, you just have to laugh at Zelda: Ocarina of Time. It's an action/platforming/RPG game, set in a fantasy/medieval world, and you have exploding fish and statues that shoot blue lasers trying to kill you. What the hell?

      2. Now, Super Smash Bros is a pretty good game. But unlike it's sequel, there is barely any variety in the characters. Almost all the attacks are based off a set pattern. Everyone character has some variation of a punch, jump, double jump, special jump, and special move. ANd did I mention, there aren't that many characters either.

      *inhale* Ok, I've had my bitching for the week.

      I just finished volumes 12 and 13 of Fullmetal Alchemist. I'm a pretty hardcore fan, and I was really dis-appointed that FMA had to end so soon. I've seen the movie, so it was like another 7-10 episodes, but still.

      And for some reason, I have this obssession with the Homunculi, Wrath (from the anime) in particular.

      EDIT: Check this song out. Fucking awesome.

      Dude, there's something you need to know about: "Caboose=Master Chief?". This thread is proving to be the bane of my existence. There are actually people who think the idiot Caboose could really be the badass Master Chief. WTF? It's been going on for awhile and has gotten quiet recently, but the peace has been disturbed. I may need your help denouncing the obviously false "Caboose is MC" claims. So keep alert, that time could be soon...

      You can easily create an animated .gif in Elements and make it as plain or fancy as you want. The more complex and animated you make your animated .gifs will of course add bytes to the finished graphic. Keep it simple to keep the finished file size down.

      First, open Elements 3 and draw a simple shape. This one is on a 100 x 50 pixel stage and is an arrow chosen from the Custom Shape Tool. animated gif tutorial arrow

      Duplicate the layer and simplify both layers by right clicking on each one in the layers palette and selecting 'Simplify Layer. Select the top layer in the layers palette and using the magic wand tool, click on the arrow. This will put 'marching ants' around it to tell you that it is the current selection. arrow1.gif

      Next, change the foreground color to a lighter shade and using the paint bucket tool, flood fill the arrow with the lighter color. animated gif tutorial

      Elements will animate as many visible layers as you create if you save it as an animated .gif. Turn off visibility of layers that you don't want to be included in the animation before saving. arrow2.gif

      Select 'File | Save for Web' to bring up the Save for Web properties box. Select GIF as the format and make sure the 'animate' box is checked under the 'transparency' box. You can set the graphic to loop and change the timing of the frame delay. The default is 0.2. You can also toggle frame by frame or preview your animated .gif in your browser.

      At the bottom of the properties box you can select which browser to preview the animation in. Click on the drop down to select or add your browser if it is not on the default list.

      When you preview the graphic in your browser before you save it, you can see how it will look on the web and the properties are also listed of the graphic, including the byte size. Elements also gives you the code for cutting and pasting the graphic in HTML. Just copy all the code between the 'Image Ready Slices' comments to add your new animated .gif to your page.

      LOL, I'm glad you think I'm cool. You know, there's a reason you and I are already listed as friends, it's because we have a lot in common. And yea, Theatre's a very tight knit group. Which can be a nuisance some times, but most of the time just means really awesome friends. (unfortunatly it also means it's hard to get a job with people who don't know you.)

      Dude, if you're thinking that I was actually offended, then I need to start writing my jokes in a different font than the other stuff. I was just playing off the whole "Sarge doesn't have a girlfriend" thing from way back when. Also, the -20 self esteem skill thing was just a reference to you thinking Zelda is an RPG. As for the asshole/bastard thing, come on. Look who the creators of this site are, and wonder where I might get it. If you were actually worried though, then I'm sorry. If you were just messing with me to get this type of reaction, then I hate you we're even.
