View Full Version : new c2 online resource?

11 November 2002, 02:59 AM
OK c2 users. I have a hair brained idea. I've noticed that despite combustion's quickly growing user base, there isn't really that many online resources for it.

This brings me to my question; what do you think the feasability of a dedicated combustion web resource would be? Or maybe one dedicated to mid-range compositors? FXGuide has the high end covered pretty well, but not a lot on c2. is always dead. The site would be strictly a web resource, where users could submit tricks n tips, some tut's, and example scene files and plugins. I'd rather not do news clips as this increases workload exponentially - other than maybe some "Live from SIGGRAPH" reports.

So, comments? Ideas? Feedback? Willing to help?

This is just in the wild idea stage at this point and I am gathering data to see if it's even worth pursuing.

count me in - i'd love to see a c2 resource that actually has some value from users rather than rehashes of the tutorials...

yeah baby!

Yeah, although Combustion comes with good manuals and enought tutorials, I think tips n tricks and community could be fine for such a good piece of software !

Anyway, let me know if you need some help for webdesign for example.

I have a site dedicated to Max and Plasma, I would love to have Combustion users as well. If you are interested I'll create a forum and start getting some tutorials written for it. Anyone interested in my offer?

i think there ARE enough forums!
what we need are some tutorials ...

thank you for the offer, i would like to
see your tutorials ...

I'll put them hand in hand. Consider the Forum there to discuss the tutorials.

1. Who is interested in writing tutorials?
2. What do you guys want for tutorials?
3. If its keying should they contain the video files to work with?
4. Do you want tutorials that are compositing, or particles...?

You get the drift. I have an intermediate knowledge of the program as I had to take a class or two in it, but with advanced stuff I'm just a little hazed out.

If someone else would be willing to write tutorials with me, I'll format them and post no problem.

I would talk to Will who runs highend2d and see if you can help build the comunity for it there. The advantage is that you allready have a huge community there and a server with a huge amount of bandwidth. Highend is allready a well known name.
