If skate and the new J-brothers aren't in this video then there is no justice :) Also think the great Victor Escobar should be in, anyone else agree?

normally I get 720p if I record, and I'm using the same programs as yours. so I think that it should be possible to get HD

Thik is amazing, but he hasn't made a design in so long. Same with people like Jon and Robomaf.

The people that I think should be on:

Skateskier
Camaro
Jyo, althought he hasn't done much lately
Compscure
mtdewd (I think people usually underestimate the unconnected shuffle)
sparkleflower
schmittd

I think that's who deserve to be added. Of course I forgot some people; feel free to say that. :P

Here's all their design lists (at least their published ones). If they don't post we'll just have to choose 2 from these lists.

Skateskier: http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/use ... rId=937837
Camaro: http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/use ... rId=621365
Jyo: http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/use ... rId=237712
Compscure: http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/use ... rId=744173 Found the profile but no designs? :(
mtdewd http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/use ... erId=31884 same as above
sparkleflower: http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/use ... rId=366452
schmittd: http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/use ... Id=1413862 He had some problems with his designs being deleted I think. :(
Thik: http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/use ... rId=600009 lol only two new ones since the last video.

I agree, but I think they'd feel out of place in this video. I wouldn't mind dedicating a separate video just to unconnected designs though. :)

And sorry about that mix-up there {???}, my memory must be broken. >.>

IG, no problem. I've given Remy his due payback via PM :twisted: 16 horrible brown designs to update. As for which designs you chose, I never really specified so it's all good.

Did you check my later post with the new designs? Or...is my Down Under longway cooler than them?

I don't post much anymore, but I'm still lurking the forums. :ninja:

I haven't made any amazing designs recently so i guess i'll just use these.

glad i got included :) and yes, i did have all my designs deleted, but i was able to retrieve a few of my favortie latest ones up to the point before they were deleted from various threads:

Gravedigger: http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11781516 possibly my favorite ever, but it takes awhile when the ball rolls along the bottom
Island Paradise: http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11781517 received remy's compliments, which made me happy
Alcatraz: http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11781518 i was the first (and currently the only) one to solve this on protos new thread
Catch My Drift: http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11781520 another one from protos thread. kinda messy, but i like it.

and a group one consisting primarily of me, DokQ, and rian http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11768265 the first (and currently only) gatekeeper longway

some of my better MAG solves:
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11781528 black hole :(
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11781531 im a cheater :grin:
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11781534 was in IG's "unsolved" thread

pick which ones you like, ill try to find some more, i think those are the only ones possibly worthy of being in the video

List has finally been updated! :)

Two questions for you guys:

-Unconnected designs or not? I think they're awesome but don't really fit with the rest.

-Should I record or should waffle? (check the examples on earlier pages)

yea i kinda am discriminating but i think unconnected are really different...still really impressive solves but i think there should be a video just for them...or maybe and unconnected section of the video.
I didn't see waffle do a filming example..but yours looked okay but a little blurry...can that be fixed up pretty easy? flattered me when you used my contraption as a test btw

also still need to choose music?

How about analog marinade by vibrasphere? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UQn2C_byeOk slow to build but has a good sound for ipecac contraptions at 4 minutes until 5 minutes 30 seconds if you could cut out that part haha

or did you already have somthing in mind?

should we use this (group) design? http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11735947

and IGLima, didn't you had 720p on your FC video from your designs?

I like the idea of an unconnected section, but there are only two unconnected players worthy of being on such a video...so it wouldn't be very climactic.

For collabs, I would say
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11735947 Junkyard LW - rian, zhyrek, schm, pawel, {???}, and brian3.14
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11768265 Gate Keeper LW - schm, DocQ, rian, remy, evilclone, and zhyzhy
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11760650 Maze #? - DocQ, rian, schm, and jdccdj1
http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=11595104 Maze #9 - Dean-o, jdel, remy, uuuiiiooop, and schm

That's all I can find...and adding more mazes is tempting the youtube 15 minute limit.

Also, babits, I thought you were more of a cp fan...

I can upload longer than 15 minutes, and maybe I can speed up certain parts of the collabs. If you guys would like, I could make one HUGE video of the greatest collabs of all time. It could be like a movie. I'm almost certain it's possible for me to make an hour long video and upload it.

sounds like awesome but how many people would watch it besides us? ...lets make it into a dvd and sell it to blockbusters FTW!! I think its good but as long as the video is still high quality...

yes rianbay i am a cp fan but idk that it mixes super well with fc (except while building contraptions :D ) , stuff with lyrics dosen't work well IMO :S
