It’s approximately 5 weeks before Rouge‘s deadline, and I’m noticing a few difficulties which would need to be overcome should I decide to make another Brickfilm. However, funds are limited so only one would have to be picked – but which one?
Do I get –
1.) Webspace? Get the funds together to buy some webspace and own domain name. Brickshelf’s OK as a temporary means, but 3 hours to download Loganart’s ‘What Not To Do . . . ‘ whilst using broadband is, frankly, unacceptable. 😡
2.) Bricks? Lots of Bricks? 4000 pieces sounded a lot, but it’s not for Rouge. Especially the lack of a decent size baseplate . . . :roll
3.) AlamDV2. Looks pretty funky, and I would think it’s a must-have for SPFX, such as blasters, lightsabers, etc. 8)
So, what would you guys do in my situation?

It’s not brickshelf who is slow… it’s your internet connection! it takes me 10 minutes to download logan’s what not to do…. AND ON MY OLD COMP!
my old comp is very slow
what internet connection have you? is Videotron exist in the USA? cose i have Videotron ”haute vitesse” and it’s fast!
and like bump500 just tell you… alamdv must be the first thing you’ll buy 😀July 18, 2003 at 9:00 pm #8998

FX are cool, but very difficult to balance.
You can have a very nice script with story, gags and everything, but if you use special effets too often or too much you will waste all the good.
Reading your post I am not sure if you need stuff to solve your fx or background/scenario problems.
Anyway, I prefer an effect/scenario made with bricks to a digital one for many reasons:
* You have to think to the best way to make it.
* Makes the film more plain and “immersive”, because your senses have not to skip from one view of reality (lego shapes) to another (digital image or picture).
* The “wow” effect of a good realized solution is higher and more gratifing than the one coming from chroma keying (a good use of this technique is not simple as supposed).
