OmeN: Trailer limit has been on the instructions page since the beginning:

Curses my blindness! Well I got some editing to do… hopefully if a have lil more than 90s u wot kill me :stuck_out_tongue:


#147

My videos aren’t loading. Why?


#148

question about sound:

  1. Can I compose my background music using somekind of software based on samples? or maybe I can use someone’s orginal music to remix it in that kind of software?

  2. I guess there is no limitation for using life recorded sounds (f.e. hitting the wall with my head) for sfx.

3.If I ask someone to perform 90s orginal soundtrack to my trailer, is it all right if I just list him (or her ) in my cast crew (another example: Orginal Sound track by Vesperios aka “Mad Violin”) along with life actors and voice actors? or he (or her! -anyone? :wink: ) must be CGMember and my team member?

  1. Personally I can’t imagine trailer without music ,and since we are all painters or modellers… or animators -not musicians that makes this challenge extremally hard! I must find my notes from highschool , i remeber I played a little on guitar that time…:twisted:

  1. Can i (or administrator) dete one of my image that i have posted… ? there were a bug and 3 indentical images were posted.

  2. “Scratch Voice track and/or original footage” - can anyone tell about this with more datails?


#150

hm, looks like few ( or many ) of us are fighting with trailer milestones. Since I think we all have different workflow for such a subject, is it allowed to just fake those milestones - so we don´t need to make our updates following exactly your description?

Thanx.

However we don’t want to disadvantage anyone who has not read the book or who doesn’t have time. Here are some of the main locations you could choose to illustrate, render or incorporate in your trailer. orign from Inspirational Guide

I have a question from the words above.every locaton with a picture to give me a reference,can I make a still or concept design fully different from the pictures provided by govement.I find I will express better.I want to know if allow?or I modifiy on the basics.because
I believe the pictures provided can limited the image.


#156

Use your imagination! :slight_smile:


#157

How can I delete or replace milestone images? Or we can’t?


#158

You can’t, but you can upload multiple entries for a single milestone. (eg, you could have four concept sketches).


#159

Hi, I’ve a simple question.
Now I’m working in a office for an university unpaid work experience.
I use cinema 4D every day and in the downtime I model my scene.
I can use the licence of the program of the office for doing my scene?..because for the moment I haven’t my personal licence…I hope to win it!!!:slight_smile: :slight_smile: :slight_smile:


#160

This is not an “official” answer - but I think you should ask the boss in the office for permission. If he/she agrees, then it is ok. Authorship of a work is not connected to who owns the tools. And if you are using a legally acquired and licenced copy (i.e. “seat”) of the program, while it’s not being used by the other employees in the office, I don’t see why it should be wrong.

(Unless you’re employed in the office on regular basis and use the tool during your official working hours - in such a case authorship goes to the office.)

Nevertheless, we better wait for Mibus to confirm this…
