Last matter regarding the fun incident with that guy form Youtube has been resolved, turns out you can solve a lot by simply talking to them privately and extending your hands to invite polite conversation, anyway as with all these situations it was pointless and silly.

Onto other matters, I require some insight into how to make better quality videos and avoid the annoying ratio ignoring saves in Movie Maker, basically any tips you have about making videos. Also any suggestions about what it is you'd like to see :ahoy:
  • Listening to: Halo 4 OST
  • Reading: Halo 4 Art Book
  • Watching: Star Gate SG1
  • Playing: Skyrim
  • Eating: HALO 4!!??!
  • Drinking: Soup

the negatives are :when you see digital art developing this way, you think why should i take the effort of painting and painstakingly learning it when everyone else is doing digitalart the easy way.Take a few snapshots, blend it, then add sharpen. The result will be: you have learned nothing new painting-wise, you have just become a slightly better collage artist.

More halo would be nice, maybe some spartans this time... Or spaceships... cool big ones.
About movie maker, i've been using that for a long time now and have had the same issues (and lots of glitches). Try a higher or lower resolution video, or maybe different file type. _Maybe it's best if you use another editing program.

Some quick tips:

- Use camtasia studio to record - It's really, really good!
- If your PC is good enough, record in HD. It really makes a difference.
- Record in a wide aspect ratio ( I usually only cut the windows bar off ). I know that the layers and the tools don't really need to be in the video, but the whole thing will look better without the black bars in the side. ( btw I see that you tried this but movie maker butchered it, oh well next time! )

I really think the biggest thing is to record in HD, makes all the difference in the world. However this obviously depends on the specs of your pc!

Good luck!

Sounds like a plan, many have said to use Camtasia 8 so I should give that a go.

Whilst I'm glad the issue is resolved, if this happens again I hope you don't repeat your reaction of starting a journal stating 'Haters gonna hate' and riling up your watchers into bitching about the person criticising you. Labelling someone a hater and troll (regardless of how pedantic and misinformed their criticisms may be) doesn't help anyone in that sort of situation. The fact is, you're a professional artist and that professionalism should extend through your artistic endeavours.

Now on a more positive note, I hope to see more uploaded videos - if nothing more, they are a great look into how your process and style has changed and how it is evolving.

Your very right, but like with most when in that position rational thought seems to be the first to go, and what he was saying was not correct, it was opinion that he was stating as fact, that is wrong and my replies to him were not violent they simple took what he said and countered it, my opinion. Yes ok the title of the journal and the journal itself was a mistake but I replaced it soon after.

How much Halo 4 can you eat??? :P
Joking aside, next time you got a troll, gimme a call. I seem to be quite good at getting under their skin...
Trolls know how trolls think I guess...
