    Sorry Benlen, but you completely ruined what could have been a classic brickfilm. If you had paced it up a bit, and written and ending that wasn’t completely lazy it could have been something special.

    You know what Nate? Stand by your opinion. What bothers me the most about what you’ve said is not that you don’t like the…[Read more]

    Did you think that perhaps the film would have been better if you wrote an ending for it?

    Of course I wrote an ending. You saw it, did you not?

    And I’m with Blunty, wondering why there was no ending. It’s a good story, but it’s not one that lends itself to being a cliff-hanger…

    We coped with you.
    Guys, asking ‘can someone ban him now?’ is not going to convince the admin, or make him more inclined to ban someone. Just ignore the spammer.

    To elaborate, here’s what the exporter looks like on Mac. Perhaps it’s different on PC? I don’t know:

  • This is what I have built for my most recent film (in the making)

    1) Take good sized table, get big piece of plywood (old piece found in garage) use big screws and drill it down to table to create a bigger area for film-making.
    2) Use a sander and sand the plywood surface. Paint the entire surface with pure black, to absorb the light.
    3) Get…[Read more]

    It’s strange, seeing so many faces, many new, but some old ones as well. Some are exactly as I imagined, and others not so much. I see trill has braces (man those things were painful).
    While the majority of users seem to be caucasian and male, they’re is also a growing diversity at this site, which is good to see.

    Mindgame, I don’t know if you’ve been (or are) fifteen, but, you really have to be to even understand what all Harry’s going through.

    Benlen, I perfectly understand why Harry is a pissy little kid. I understand that his adolescence is rather…unconventional. But seriously, Harry is like that all throughout the book.…

    Blue, I must agree. The fifth novel was good, but it was too long delayed (but understandably though, considering what…[Read more]

    I had no problem at all with the link. Perhaps it’s your web browser? Which one are you using?

    I don’t really know a lot about these thing but maybe you have too many devices supplied by a single power outlet.

    Also try to raise the shutter speed, if it gets over exposured just take some lights away.

  • Sure, I might join in sometime. I’m not all for audio chats, but then again, I didn’t know (until now) that Yahoo had voice chat options. Cool.

    Note: My current screenname is inactive, but I have another. Not that it really matters, of course.

    Strange Ferder, but for some reason, noise removal is disabled on my version. Strange.

    Make sure you add you fonts to Harddrive>Library>Fonts and not User (ex: your little house icon)>Library>Fonts. This way, if you have a multiple user computer, all fonts will be available to each username (sometimes a good or bad thing).

    Those castle sets look wonderful, if only LEGO would build it that way, and all these other companies wouldn’t be such a threat.
