Machinima Competition #2: Interview Brainstorming!


Recommended Posts

Last week, Jagex announced that they are holding their second Machinima competition, and the entire community is invited to send in submissions for this contest! They are also welcoming any questions that our community may have, so that we can send them in as an interview with Jagex! So, if you have any questions about the competition that you'd like to have answered, post them in this topic! -.-

I have the perfect idea, but I think I won't be able to do it. -.-

I have a funny idea (well I think it's funny) but I'm not sure how to execute it. I'm trying to come up with a plan or script of some sort but the exact 30 second limit really limits it quite a bit. I guess I'll ask a few questions about the 2nd competition:

 

Why make it an "advertisement" competition?

In your eyes, how successful was the first competition?

What have you learned from the first competition that you changed in the second? (behind the scenes stuff I guess)

Do you have a "team" dedicated to just watching and/or judging the videos for the competition?

Do you plan to do more competitions in the future?

Will there be more "no-themed" machinima competitions?

Was the Orb of Oculus specifically released for the Machinima competitions? Or, was it always going to come out?

Will the prizes ever change?

Do you feel you have connected more with the community after the first competition?

Do you plan to release more items into the game to enhance video making?

Is there a set number of competitions you plan to have? Surely you can't keep handing out life time memberships and plane trips forever.

I really don't have an editing program, so I'm not even going to bother recording. Also, our recorder is messed up. Soo, I really don't care. But, maybe, just maybe, I might get struck by a brilliant idea.

Could i just use unregistered hypercam 2 or do I need fancy editing program?

I have an awesome idea, which I would really like to be able to do.

Edit: Oh BTW, does anybody have a youtube channel that I could use? I don't have one or know how to get one.

On the top right corner of Youtube there is a link which says "Creat Account" click that and you'll be on your way! Also, there are a few free screen recorders without a tag that're good quality; try autoscreenrecorder 3.0 -.-

Or try Camstudio, Excl recommended it for beginners. Just search for it on Google or Yahoo.

Yeah, type Camtasia Studio 6 in Google and click the top link for a 30 day trial -.-

I would have to agree. Camtasia studio's quality is far better than camstudio. However, camtasia isn't the best editing program out there..I would suggest Sony Vegas pro 9 (there is a thirty day trial available).

I had camstudio, but the picture turned out to be very cruddy, so i started using hypercam 2.

Where would I find Sony Vegas Pro 9?

Sorry, but it costs 600$... I found deals for it in mail catalogs.

Also, just a note: Sony Vegas does not have the ability to record the screen.

[Well here go my questions.]

 

Q1. This competition round you had the time limit put down by a minute and a half. Is this because you had difficulty getting through the number of entries you had last year? Or was it just to make it more ad-like?

 

Q2. When the Orb of Oculus was released, several videomakers felt it was incredibly hard to control. Do you have any plans to fix this?

 

Q3. A while ago MMG talked about perhaps adding in "green screen" rooms: is this still a possibility? Some of the best Runescape videos are the ones that have been green-screened from the grass in a POH, but I'm sure this isn't an ideal solution and as a freeplayer I'd like some sort of green-screen option available too.

Thanks,

Helm360

What do you mean, it can't record the screen?? (accidental rhyme -.-) Why would anyone use it if it can't record the screen?

Sony Vegas is one of the best video editing programs out there. Also, this topic is getting very off-topic, I suggest we move it to PM. -.-

Getting back on topic...

 

1. Which mods judge the videos?

2. What is your criteria when judging the videos? (Besides the given rules)

3. How did you come up with the idea of having the theme of the competition as "advertisements?"

4. Will the winning advertisement be used for anything "official?"

1.

Do you feel that players voting for the winner is fair to the other finalists? For instance, last year was a bit obvious that the winner had a huge advantage over everyone else and there were a lot of people who admitted to not watching the other entries.

 

2.

What's the budget on movie snacks that Jagex has limited themselves to for judging this competition?

 

3.

Are many video quotes going around the castle? EG:

"Shut up, noob!"

 

4.

Is the machinima trend going to be expanded more in Runescape and have its own community; possibly a forum catagory?

Just saying 'bout screen recording suggestions:

 

Most screen recorders (I advise against hypercam because of the tag - prestated) have the 'uncompressed video' option for compressing. This means it will be the exact same quality as in RuneScape. These files are big, but worth it for decent video quality. When you edit the video and export it (in what ever program you have), then the quality will drop again, so I suggest setting the quality to 'high' or 'best' for that.

 

I hope that helps.
