TWO final movie files available?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I have been away from TWO and this forum for quite a long time so sorry for asking a question that might be clear for anybody else here.

 

* Will TWO be released on a real DVD?

* If YES: How can I get it? :-)

* If NO: Are the finally rendered movie files available somewhere for download?

 

Caroline (thanks :-)) pointed me to their youTube location and I was so excited and proud when spotting some of the scenes that I have done. But I have poor bandwidth at home and still would like to show the movie to my family. So I thought about putting the movie files on a DVD by myself. Is there anything?

 

Thanks and regards,

Ralf

There isn't a DVD available yet unfortunately.

 

Email Martin personally and let him know how much you are looking forward to the DVD. :)

I just watched the whole thing on Youtube yesterday. It's in 11 parts. I assume this is the completed movie but I couldn't say for sure. Just do a search on youtube for Tin Woodman of Oz.

Is the TWO movie available anywhere for download (other then Your Tube)?

Indeed, I want to ask the same thing!

 

Also, I found it a bit rediculous that the Hash, Inc. WIKI did not mention where to actually find the TWO movie release. Many of your WIKI pages are in desperate need of updating.

 

For example, the Main Page TWO on the Hash, Inc. WIKI doesn't even mention that the TWO project was finished. In fact, it suggests just the opposite. Among other things, it claims "to find out more about TWO visit the TWO area in the A:M Forum." But, in actuality, that link takes one to the "Hash Movie Project" area of the forums, which is now occupied by the SO (Scarecrow of Oz) project, which is the new project after TWO.

 

Even the Tin Woodman of Oz page on the WIKI doesn't explain about the projects current status or where to find the movie.

 

My point is that these out-of-date pages are confusing to visitors and new members such as myself. I would think that Hash, Inc. would want it to be known far and wide about the release of this major movie project that promotes their software product!

 

In any case, I suggest you consider uploading the TWO movie to someplace other than YouTube. While extremely popular, YouTube is known for rather poor quality video. And YouTube is extremely restrictive on the size and number of minutes in duration, hence having to split it up into nearly a dozen parts.

 

Perhaps someone is willing to upload to someplace like Revver? Their FAQ states:

 

We do not have an upper limit on length of video so long as your file is under 100MB.

We accept the following formats: MOV, MPEG, MPG, MP4, WMV, ASF, AVI (including DIVX).

 

And if 100MB is not enough for the entire thing, it could easily be broken into two or more parts. (It should take much less than 11 parts, however!)

 

If Revver is not an option, how about Veoh?

 

But, IMHO, the best and most obvious option would be to host the .avi, mov, or .mpeg on hash.com itself! (Or at least on some file host like Rapidshare.) Some of us, particularly those of us cursed with slow internet speeds, want to be able to download the entire movie (preferable in high quality) and to watch at our leasure. And downloading once takes less bandwidth than watching and re-watching it over several times online. We might even want to burn it to disk and then share with friends and family. Who knows, that might get friends and family interested in Animation Master...

Thanks for taking the time to post bsperan.

 

Updating the TWO wiki is a very good suggestion.

You can always just use one of the many tools available for downloading YouTube content to your hard drive. There's a Firefox extension called "DownloadHelper" that works pretty well.

Perhaps If you are willing you can help us in permoting TWO? You need to talk to Martin before doing anything he is the Project leader. The situation is this is a Volunteer Group Project and we need more help in doing the things you just suggested. It's not that we are not aware of these problems and we all want them updated/fixed there is simply no one able to do it. We each do what we want or know how to do or enjoy. I want to Animate so that is how I help he Project and over the years of us as a team doing this we get people that volunteer and these things work well but they seem to drop off after a while and each one of us are trying to get what we are working on done that these things get missed.

 

We have a saying here in the Movie Project Group and in these forums. When making suggestions about how to improve things be prepared to asked to implement your suggestion if we agree to them. ;)
