Well I just thought it might be fun. Im wondering if this is possible...if we could get some stock footage of like a ten second clip, and then apply some AE effects back and forth, just like a Photoshop battle, you have to use an element from the previous volley.

Is this a dumb idea? My PS skills aren't that great, but maybe I could compete with AE. I know a lot of people don't have AE either. Another thing is that after about 20 volleys there might be generation loss in the QT files.

You'll need AE, a solid video encoder like Sorenson or Media Cleaner, and QT Pro. If anyone has these tools and would like to compete lemme know.

wow... sounds like a great idea VR! if I had the required software, i'd tear ya up ;)

but after effects is too pricey for me these days :( i miss it!

wouldn't the file sizes become huge?

sounds fun thoug :cool:

I've got the educational vesrion of AfterFx, and soon I've got to make a clip using that, so I could use some practice :D

problem is that I dont have a server (only brinkster:rolleyes: )

cool. Im glad there is at least some interest.
Well file size could be a problem unless you had a high quality encoder. I can compress a three minute clip with a bunch of AE effects at around 5mb. So ten seconds should definitly be less than a meg...around 300-700k. I could always host the clips on my server.

I don't know it might be too much to ask, but if anyone has all the software and wants to try it out Im game.
