How I Edit Videos – Vol. 1: Software

The last video (Getting HD out of your PAL GameCube) actually took an entire month to produce. A lot of that time was spent optimising my workflows for future videos, so I thought I might share some insights on how I typically edit and produce videos.

This video was recorded in the format of a live stream with 4 continuous video feeds recorded simultaneously, unscripted with no retakes. Take a look for yourself in the video below:

For those interested, the editing software is denoted in the video description.

Getting HD out of your PAL GameCube

After quite some time capturing footage for the GameCube, we’re proud to present a video that demonstrates the progressive scan capabilities of the Nintendo GameCube. This means we’re able to get 60 frames per second at a 720x480p resolution natively from a PAL Nintendo GameCube (which usually uses 720x576i 25 frames per second) from the Digital Output port.

This output is then compared against the stock 576i output, a WiiU that plays GameCube games, and a SEGA Dreamcast with the same game. The results are phenomenal, check it out below:

A written version of this video is available here:

Super Smash Bros. Simulcast

This was the first attempt of a simultaneous live broadcast to both Twitch and YouTube from our chain of RTMP servers over an ADSL connection. It technically worked, but YouTube was not able to keep most of the recording and what was left was corrupt. So here is the local version uploaded later today:

We’ll tweak a few things before we try this again. The new Super Smash Bros. is pretty good.

Duel 95 Theme (2016)

A new version of the Duel 95 Theme was recorded back in 2016, you may have heard it play in some live streams between 2016-2017. In addition to that, there was also a Bass Cover produced of that song the same year which may have seemed odd seeing how there was no video of the actual song.

Anyway without further adieu, here is the new version:

If you’re interested in listening to the old 2011 version or want to listen to the bass cover, check out liamgouldy’s YouTube channel.

SONIC MANIA!!!

Sonic Mania yields the speedy return of the classic sonic gameplay that we know and love along with a new punchy soundtrack that stays true to the classic style in a new way. This game is a lot of fun and I’d definitely recommend checking it out.

Here’s the recording of the live stream we made at launch (2am AEST):

Casting Call: Land Patrol II

This is an official casting call for Land Patrol II! We are looking to cast Voice Actors (VAs) for our new semi-animated web-series. Though this show will be based on the original premise of Land Patrol, the content itself will be quite different – also the title of the new show will not be announced yet.

If you’re a voice actor, a writer, character modeler or mapper, animator or musician, please check out the casting page in the link below:

Nintendo Switch out March 2017!

It’s just after 1am on 21 October 2016 and the Nintendo Switch (Nintendo NX) has been announced for release. We already knew the release date but had no idea what the NX was going to be, apart from a few rumours, leaks and patents. Now we know it’s a cartridge-based console that allows you to “switch” between home console and handheld console.

Take a look for yourself:

Stay tuned,
