New video - Basecoating

Posted in Custom Workstation

It's not going to be particularly good quality because it's a digi-cam video, but give me some simple topics to tackle to test this out. I'll browse through the tutorial request thread a little too.

I have the same problem with my digital camera's videos. They look great playing back on the camera but they're not all that good on a pc.

Yarrr, see, it's not hard. Wet the brush, smack the water out of it, start painting. Once it gets too dry, wet it, smack it, start painting again.

Notes:
-Don't go over an area you painted until it's completely dry or you'll smear the previous layer.
-Don't put too much pressure or you'll tear-up the previous layer.
-Don't put too much water, remember, this isn't a wash. Once you notice the paint on the brush is gone, get a little more paint. Simple, eh?
-That same quick back and forth motion is used for dry-brushing. I dry-brush and base-coat the same way, only in basecoating I paint the grooves as well.

Anyway, here you go:

It's 30MB so...yeah lol. I liked that large size but the quality still suck's, I don't know how to make it very clear.

What are you making the video about?

Ok, I'm doing the video editing. I really really don't want to talk because I hate my crackling voice, but screw it, it's easier to talk than add text to the video

It's not a camcorder, it's a digital-camera with movie feature. It says I can even shoot in HD (with special cables) but that's stupid, they end up looking grainy on the web anyway for some reason. >_<

I can choose the focus on it though, I have it on macro for this video. I hate that it looks clear on my computer but grainy online ~_~

Do you have a focus button? Cameras usually have 'em.

It's going to be kind of hard to see any detail though, especially if I work on very small areas of a figure >_<

I'm going to show how to add he ML/DC neck hole to figures that have a long/bulky neck, like McFarlane's stuff.

Lol, I didn't notice Photobucket had a video thing!

Yeah, I just really don't like youtube and google...

Wow, tinypic was fast!

The quality still isn't as good as I hoped Im going to mess with the video quality on the editor-save.

Photobucket to the rescue!

What kind of system do you have Doc?

Windows Movie Maker works pretty well most of the time...
