    Is there anywhere to get Key Assistant (the old site doesnt work)? I have BSOL but I wanted to see what Key Assistant was like.

    Any help or a link to the site is welcome.

    Key Assistant is a counter-intuitive program that copied screenshots of BSOL without understanding the underlying functionality.

    While not totally useless, it does not provide functionality beyond BSOL (except – reportedly, never seen it at work – .avi support).

    This completely biased review was brought to you by

    Stefan, author of BSOL.

    P.S. If you want BSOL: please understand that I am quite selective at the moment. Your odds of getting it improve if you
    a) have a decent film, or several screen tests that show a serious interest in the matter available.
    b) provide screenshots from the scenes you’d like to use it in. This will help me test newer versions.
    c) tell your Forum name at BrickFilms. This won’t help when you fail to follow guideline (a).

    P.P.S. Several of the effects mentioned in e-mails to me can be accomplished WITHOUT bluescreening. In general, your film will look better if you don’t need it. If you’re new to all this, you’re STRONGLY advised not to attempt this until you’ve mastered the basics. Good examples of films that work without effects beyond simple fades are The Barber of Seville and, of course, Out of Time.

    P.P.P.S. I’m thinking to rename the program for the next release and remove bluescreening functionality altogether, or keep it as something of an extra for computer-generated images. Its main purpose will then be the manual masking process, for example if you want your character to jump. I’m using the program only for this. How do you like “Masking Master”?

    P.P.P.P.S. Yes, it will include Zoom, Load/Save Project functionality and the Mover tool will work without trouble. Double-clicking the foreground/background switch will no longer act weird (by the way: double-clicking again will lose the weirdness in the current edition, should you experience it).

    It’s Ok. How about the “Masked Lego”?
    I think it sounds pretty good since you mask the legos that are usually holding you lego-migure up when he/she is flying.

    I asume you ment will instead of won’t. And though I did introduce myself on the old foums I will do it again here.

    P.S You made a comment about staying away from bluescreening if new to brickfilming, and that is a good idea if your new, but I have been filming for quite some time (no films on the net though) and am used to bluescreening. Thank you for your comments and opinions.

    “Masking Master” sounds like a cool name. I eagerly await it :-) .

    No, he meant what he said. If you say your Brickfilms.com name BUT you DIDN’T follow the guideline, then providing your name WILL NOT help you in getting the program. The guideline being a) have a decent film, or several screen tests that show a serious interest in the matter available.
