I've no idea how this streaming vid works, but is it possible that it's slow to load because of the amount of traffic? I'm sure the Valentine's Day cartoon loaded much quicker a few days go.

It's good to see animators will have some more tools available to create awesome stuff.

I do have to say that the loading times are pretty long for these vids. Especially that Valentine submission seemed to take unusually long to load yesterday.

PERFECT SWF TO VIDEO CONVERSION!?!?!!1

WHAT

WHAT!!!

THAT'S IMPOSSIBLE TOM, THAT'S IMPOSSIBLE!

You know, there was a time (around when the sopa blackout happened) that I was afraid of the future, but FUCK THAT NOW, WE'LL HAVE PERFECT SWF TO VIDEO CONVERSIONS!

I think the Valentine's Day submission is a great example of how this will increase the diversity of movies on NG. It's inarguably a great piece, traditionally animated, but would be a huge hassle to put together in Flash. Knox's claymation movies are another great example of content that was ravenously consumed by users but just fell outside the scope of what Flash can practically do.

Can't wait to see what people do with this new option.

This is a welcome addition to the site. I'm happy to see that artists will have a ton of more options to flex their creative muscle! Also, super stoked that the first episode of Starbarians is now out! :)

Wait, Will we have to buy swivel? It sounds awesome but if it comes with a price, I'll just stick to the one that Flash has built into it.

Thank. God.

I remember you mentioning this was in production earlier this year, but seriously, I am beyond happy for both the converter AND the fact other files than .swf are going to be more welcome to NG.

Thanks Tom and Mike and anyone involved :3

I'm now taking bets on how many minutes it will take when the video upload feature goes public for the portal to flood with Vblogs, bad Pivot animations, and GoAnimations.

Do I have a 60?
50?
30?
3?

Starbarians worked fine for me even with my Adblock on, though I'm allowing specific NG related objects and always have been. So maybe I'm mistaking "Turn off adblock" with actually disabling Adblock?

Do you not listen well or are you just acting stupid again? Tom Fulp said that the video feature was on an invite-basis for now, which means that unless Tom gets a wild hair up his ass and decides that he wants his website to get filled with shit, none of the things you listed will happen.

Wow, I never thought that Starbarians would actually become a real series! :D

Question: are the video fiels obligated to contain Flash material or can it also just be 'random' stuff?

It was a joke.
A bad one at that.

Also, note the part where I said "when the feature goes public".
As in, "not right now because you it's invite only, but in the future it may be public".

worked fine for me the second video took a sec to load but i just left it on pause until i felt it was ready.

Great addition i honestly can understand why others may need a lower quality option.

im just glad you supported the highest resolution possible instead of slowly working to achieve the highest resolution.

Not to mention crappy home made porn of NG users jerking it on cam.

Of course it's the people who have ponies in their signatures to not fully comprehend or even read the post Tom has made before spreading their stupidity on the BBS.

The MP4 upload feature is invite-only at the moment to avoid an all-out video dumpfest. The focus is on animated content and the occasional film with cool post-production, like if MindChamber ever makes his MindChamber movie. If you have an animation that doesn't work well as a traditional SWF, PM me.

So is the video feature just for animations that are turned to video because of file issues? I'd love to put my short film up, but I assume you guys are trying to avoid the Youtube effect and keep it strictly for animation purposes.
