Or is it the pit being used as a bottle opener?

Regardless of what it's meant do, if the outcome is getting a lady beard, a potbelly and loosing your long hair, I will never buy another coke for my wife.

Poor girl on that picture that is.... she's still thinking of the old times, when they shot the posters...

Why do you think they hired Bagdad Bob as their PR chief?

... lets see how is ending the Newtek-Promise promised for the 14th, then we know if its true with bob...

... what I dont understand is, why they dont can make the videos on the fly during the tests... like luxology is doing, or did they hired speelberg for that videos ?
I am curios how this videos are, I mean they need so many time producing for it, so they dont can be simple...

In general, they will show or give the users until last day, or last minutes. so I guess we will have it tomorrow (friday), it is friday here though.

Just as I was scrolling by that picture of a fat guy posing in front of the coke posters, Suzanne Vega sang "fat man and dancing girl"... Creepy.

In a couple days, beta testers will be making their own videos...but just not showing them to anyone (NDA's). It'll be easier to just download the beta and check out the new features for ourselves rather than waiting for a handful of videos. Although I really do like Proton's presentation style: very thorough and easy to follow.

Wickster

It would be cool if beta testers were allowed to make feature videos and show them to the community (subject to NT's Approval of course) so new users can preview what's up with LW9....buuut we are subject to the NDA so that might not happen.

And what with those people who didn't preordered LW9 ?? I think that' NT's preference should be those users - to convince them (no preorders) and more 3D users to buy LW9 upgrade 'coz ones who are downloading public beta already payed so they don't need demo videos as much as others do :).

LW9 videos should be made by NewTEK 'coz they promised :).

We are reviewing our process for planning, scripting and producing the video previews. This will take some time and due consideration, and patience will be appreciated.

... Newtek is working since weeks on these videos, they are produced well planned and scriptet how it looks. Maybe they are full with rendered digital FX, and this is the reason why it takes so much time

IT is checking on the problem - and the AVI is Techsmith codec, which we've used frequently in the past for the videos. We're working on getting a Quicktime version of the video...

there is a lot of free ftp client , so you could drag all file from ftp.newtek.com directly to your hard disk, without any linking error.

well juice having seen the Node_edit video I can really see that it was indeed carefully scripted, planned and executed. so your sarcasm you showed off the last couple of weeks really starts to let you look pretty dumb, don't you think?

:D

Is that only me?

I'm waiting for the Quicktime version but new videos should have there own separate threads...just so people know there are new videos and such.

We tried to do a QT conversion on this, but it came out to something like 450Mb. We'll try to keep the videos shorter from now on, which should help with the file sizes.

Please bookmark the Videos page. That will serve as a repository for all LightWave v9 videos as they are released. I'm sure we'll do notification posts as they come out though.

Kuzey
02-09-2006, 04:57 PM
Thanks Kurtis,

Already bookmarked :D

What about making some screenshots available for those with slow connections.

Agreed. I hereby excuse my behaviour towards juice. I guess I got carried away after finally seeing that my trust in the development team was indeed right and got a bit arrogant I guess. So juice please take this as an excuse, as we all have better things to do than fight over who is right and who is wrong. i.e. jumping around in a frenetic fashion, eagerly awaiting our time to download and play with the new tools on tuesday.

chuck, I sincerely appologise to you too. I wasn't thinking as I posted my last comment. I will try to contain myself better next time I feel the urge to tease someone.
