12:00 AM
Is stackEgg over already?!
Nvrmnd, I was logged out
 
Well, he finally pushed the giant blue render button, now it is up to the motherboard and the graphics card to decide how it will look.
 
(I became a Radish for the next 6 days :)
 
Is your poor CPU being left out? D:
 
You should also change your name
@gandalf3 you should be david :-)
and NID can be GCF, you are close enough in rep....
 
12:06 AM
@gandalf3 could I borrow some aid with a userscript?
I can seem to get it to run....
 
sure
 
Just copy your old profile into notepad so It isn't lost
 
the userscript?
 
This is running in FF? or..?
 
12:08 AM
chrome....
with tamper monkey, but shouldn't it work in FF tooo
 
It is April 1st UTC now!
 
ah
with tampermonkey, yes
 
could you fix it ff too.... but I don't know why its not working....
I don't even see the log message
 
hrmhmmhm
 
12:13 AM
It works when I disable my other userscripts..?
(kbd and blend-exchange..)
My guess is there is some race-condition thing going on
 
idk
 
Okay... now it crashes SEs JS.....
rats
Not quite sure what to do about that
 
Maybe try getting jquery like this? stackoverflow.com/a/12751531/2730823
but idk
 
it should work....
Still failed
(I stole the implementation of it form your kbd script) :D
 
12:22 AM
I have no idea
 
:/
I the click event is making it cross
@gandalf3 @NoviceInDisguise @ARadish Can you help me test
 
Test what?
 
script
 
Can you start voting on the stackegg
 
12:29 AM
How?
Ok
 
just vote normally, that is the point of the test
 
ok
Doing what you want yet?
@GiantCowFilms ?
 
Keep it up
you can stop for a little while, I have a bug
 
12:46 AM
@NoviceInDisguise still there?
 
Sort of
 
@NoviceInDisguise can you just start voting again, I've GOT to test
 
@NoviceInDisguise vote to restart
 
@GiantCowFilms Done
 
12:48 AM
:D
it worka!
Thanks!
 
?
That's good
 
@N
@GiantCowFilms You can stop voting
 
Stop
voting
?
ok
I like talking to myself
:D
Hello @ARadish
 
500 frames in and I realized one of my layers was not selected!!!!!!!
 
12:59 AM
I KNEW THIS WOULD HAPPEN!!!!!
wow, this could get confusing quite fast.....
two cows and two radishes?
 
The bad part is I Changed my name back to X-27 24 days ago, So I'm stuck as a radish for 6 more days :-)
 
:(
 
Hi @gandalf3
 
Who restarted us???
 
1:06 AM
IDK
 
I let voodoo run for like three days, then it just crashed when I tried to save
 
We only have three wins, and we are back to private beta!!!!!
 
D:
 
@ARadish sorry, I've been testing my anit-restart bot
 
I haven't though
It was the other @GiantCowFilms
 
1:10 AM
@GiantCowFilms You are novice in disguise
in Inter Planet Game, 5 mins ago, by A Radish
user 130782 = Novice in disguise
 
Well duh, just gotta look that up
Easy, huh :D
 
(The real GCF was a room owner there, copied his number, and looked at some of your questions :-)
If you really want to get confusing, start talking about interplanet game, offer to play, and talk about green squiggles :-)
 
lol
And not betray myself with XD
 
very true
 
I'm not happy about the counterfeit me
:P
I'm just far to confused
ah well April first it is
bbl
 
1:23 AM
bye
I don't know yet if the real @ARadish will mind...
 
1:58 AM
I keep getting logged out of SE o.o
 
@gandalf3 That happened to me too
I'm going to blame it on stack egg
 
O great, two gcf, and two radishes.
 
Hm..
I think I need help tracking
The result from voodoo is a total mess
 
2:09 AM
Okay
 
Probably because I pretty much just opened the sequence and said "track" without changing anything
Anyway, I have a fairly simple shot
 
Did you try blender...
 
yes
 
@gandalf3 Can I see...?
 
@GiantCowFilms Of course ;)
 
2:11 AM
What do you need....
 
just a sec
 
@gandalf3 You pinged me, instead of @GiantCowFilms I think
lol
 
:P
I think it gets both of you
 
Ah, that would make sense
night all
 
Bye, @NoviceInARealDisguise
 
2:17 AM
XD
@GiantCowFilms Anyway, I can't get trackers to stick to anything very well
But to my untrained eye it looks like there's loads of things to track
 
Could you show me the video, there are a few tricks....
 
sure
How?
(blend-exchange??)
or nvm, I have a way
 
room topic changed to The Renderfarm: A place to talk while we wait for our renders to finish. Detailed stats are at goo.gl/lXFMXG and our Area 51 page is goo.gl/NS6CyS. The latest version of Blender is 2.74, blender.org/download and you can get the latest official builds at builder.blender.org. [cycles] [game-engine] [modeling] [rendering] [scripting]
@gandalf3 yet another gif :)
 
D:
That would be horrifying XD
 
@David what did you change it from?
@David Have you seen stack egg yet?
 
2:22 AM
I think it said 2.73 before
 
ah\
ah
 
@GiantCowFilms 2.73a
@GiantCowFilms yes... you tried to get me to play this morning.
 
What you think of it...?
@GiantCowFilms It changed across all sites... I hope your not ruining my name XD
 
wast of time. I never liked those play by play games. click wait, click again repeat for ever.
 
lol
You didn't miss the flame war though, right...? that was also a waste of time but way more interesting
(not here in chat of course)
 
2:36 AM
 
Downloading....
Eeek that isn't going to track well
@gandalf3 How do you match the clip lenght again, I remember a way
@gandalf3 because its a flat plane I'm not sure you'll get a good solve...
@gandalf3 Got it
Managed to track the first bit quite nicely
@gandalf3 you there, here is my early test....
What I did was use the detect features checkbox, set it to not be picky, tracked ahead until they all were off screen, the reapeted the process, this time tracking both backwards and forwards...
afterwards you can look for points with a high solve error, and delete them
BTW I don't know if it was for upload, but the compression was dreadful
anway, bye, I have to go now
 
3:28 AM
@X-27 probably
 
 
2 hours later…
5:11 AM
@gandalf3 try using Perspective as motion model (Tracking Settings->Motion Model) I find that for this kind of shots it gives you quite accurate results.
And set the Match to "keyframe"
 
Thanks
@GiantCowFilms I tried that, but the trackers tended to fail even before they got to the edge.. What tracking settings did you use? (search size etc?)
@cegaton I tried having largish perspective/affine markers (matching keyframe) on detailed spots during the translation bit, but they tended lose the track..
@GiantCowFilms After doing that I got a solve error of over 180.. Most markers didn't even display a solve error (?)
@GiantCowFilms Is there any difference between tracking forwards/backwards?
I tried putting some perspective markers on bits that where in the middle of the screen, tracking them forwards, going back, and tracking backwards
Maybe I imagined it, but I felt like they lost the track a lot more when going backwards..
@GiantCowFilms There's a "Set Scene Frames" button in tool shelf > track > clip
 
@gandalf3 I don't think for the tracking there is a difference going backwards. But I do remember running into issues on mp4 files that would decompress differently going backwards...
 
interesting
That shouldn't be a problem if the tracked bit is already prefetched though, right?
@GiantCowFilms Wow, that's so much better than anything I've even gotten a medium distance away from getting.. :P What was the solve error?
@GiantCowFilms What did I do wrong?
D: I got logged out again
@GiantCowFilms I had to go rather suddenly, sorry..
 
5:29 AM
@gandalf3 what are your camera and lens settings?
 
Everything default except for the focal length
 
camera?
 
Thought I'm not sure what the exact focal length was..
@cegaton The settings on the actual camera?
 
how did you shoot it?
camera sensor size and lens?
 
just a sec..
 
5:31 AM
Of the real-world camera I mean
 
Sensor size: 1/2.3"
focal length: not sure, I couldn't figure out how to get the camera to tell me something besides 1x zoom :/
It wasn't exactly 1x zoom, otherwise the focal length would be 25mm
I guessed at maybe 28mm or something
@cegaton ^^
 
There are a lot of good places to track , but in my experience you can't trust any automatic tracking there is quite a lot of babysitting to be done so the trackers stay where they belong

6:48 AM
@gandalf3
 
@cegaton ikr
I'm currently at 29
 
nice!
 
:P
 
the trickiest part are the tracking points that come in and out of frame and the ones that dissapear behind the prism
 
7:13 AM
good night!
 
thanks

11:13 AM
@GiantCowFilms I'm laying low, not doing much. Don't worry :D
 
 
3 hours later…
1:55 PM
I got a score of over 5k on Google PacMaps :D
Use that map
 
2:07 PM
hello
 
Hiya Blenders!
 
You can use blender SSAO for border rendering
it's a hack but looks nice
 
Hey guys! @Vader That looks cool!
Freestyle should do that in the final render though
It that just a preview method?
 
Yeah
I was playing around with the AO that was just added. the DOF is a bit iffy
 
2:13 PM
@gandalf3 I litterally just opened the clip with the defaults and tracked... the key is to put ALOT of points on there , maybe 25-40
 
The new 360* YouTube videos are amazing!
 
@GiantCowFilms 5070 ;D
 
Aww . ..
The 360* videos are cool, being able to look where you want makes it much more immersive
 
hi all , @GiantCowFilms what's 360 videos ?
 
(click and drag in the video box)
 
2:19 PM
7120
 
Click and drag :D
 
@GiantCowFilms seen that
look at this one in chrome
 
You can look wherever you want
 
2:20 PM
Doesn't seem to work ;(
 
I am on Chrome
 
You using IE?
Oh sorry
 
is this a joke ?
 
2:21 PM
no
 
Works for me
 
But in linux...
 
That one works in my browser
 
Cool!
 
Left click?
 
2:22 PM
Work on ubuntu
in chrome
 
@Vader I'm on Xubuntu, so it should work....
 
Are you on chrome?
 
1 min ago, by someonewithpc
I am on Chrome
 
ah, okay
 
What version of Chrome?
 
2:23 PM
Works on Version 41.0.2272.101 (64-bit)
 
Version 41.0.2272.101 (64-bit)
 
( . ) ( . )
 
No setting or something to change?
 
2:25 PM
I don't think so, it just works for me :P
 
do you not see controls in the top left?
 
Left for me
 
@Vader ... I totally see eyes there, you don't know me
 
Okay, If you say so :D
 
@Vader No
 
2:26 PM
That's not good
Have you tried turning chrome off and on again????/
 
@Vader ....
Really?
 
Yay for Android!
It works on the app
 
@GiantCowFilms I've managed to get it down to a 1.3
 
2:35 PM
Get what?
 
what?
we have an imposter!
 
@GiantCowFilms NoviceInDisguise?
 
Good Disguise there
 
But not good enough
 
Yeah, rep
 
Exactly
 
@someonewithpc Nope
 
Confused yet?
 
He is now NoviceInARealDisguise
 
2:38 PM
@GiantCowFilms I wasn't talking to you you
 
To the fake GianCowFilms, you know you can only change your name every 30 days, right?
 
4 mins ago, by GiantCowFilms
Get what?
That's the fake
 
@Vader Unless you join a new site, I already have one lined up
 
the auto complete will ping both
@GiantCowFilms dammit, he knows
 
2:40 PM
:D
 
Which one are you gonna join?
We know have a proper edge split modifier
no need to break the mesh anymore
just like ngons this was long overdue
 
 
1 hour later…
3:49 PM
Sorry guys, this just isn't going to work. The animation plays way to fast, can hardly ready anything that is said.
If I re-render it again, It won't be done in time for today. :-(
 
I'll try previewing the image sequence at a lower FPS, but It might not work... :*(
meant for 20 FPS, that was WAY too fast, Just tried 15 FPS, still too fast, now trying 10....
 
4:13 PM
Ok, re-rendering it (Again)
Let's hope the minor adjustments I just made helped it.
 
the problem is, It probably will be playing too fast later on.
And I only made adjustments for the first 500 frames...
(There are 3100)
 
yah
It might not be ready in time....
But I have another surprise up my arm mounted storage compartment.
(sleeve)
 
4:18 PM
not for april 1st...
 
Which is in 4 Days !!! so I need to get busy!
also, Tell no one.!
:-)
 
4:37 PM
I think that doing nothing makes you progress on the timeline faster, but I'm not sure
The stars have to be full though
 
Frame rate does
for me it caps at 60fps though, even when I want 120

6:33 PM
@X-27 how do I get nice lighting with shadows in my game?
@ARadish is someone framing me?
Who is the other @ARadish , causew this is the real one.
 
 
2 hours later…
8:20 PM
@ARadish X-27 has been genetically mutated for the next few days. (for April 1st) You can get nice shadows using a setup like this.
(making example)
is that a good example?
One more thing, the three other sun lamps to cancel out the harsh shadows do NOT emit any shadow.
 
8:45 PM
nice!
How is it different from changing the shadow color . . ?
@ARadish
 
9:27 PM
New question-
0
Q: Change the default font

A RadishI have been playing with the settings for the text object recently, and every time I add a new text object, I need to change the font to my favorite one. (Eurostile LT ExtendedTwo) Is there any way to change the default font so I do not need to change it every time I add a new text object? Exam...

I happen to think It is a relatively good one.
 
 
1 hour later…
10:49 PM
@ARadish I'm too lazy for that :P
 
I know! who wants to change the font every time?
