"Vlog Time"

Posted: 13 November, 2020

Saturday 07.11.2020

Recorded VO for a new vlog and started on the video capturing. I assumed everything was going well until I imported the footage into Resolve, and the capture was only recording the main UE window, not any of the other windows I was using to edit blueprints. So that was all a complete write off..

For whatever reasons, nothing wants to record the desktop on this laptop. Shadowplay, Xbox, OBS and fraps are all failing and I can’t be bothered to look into it any further. My Dev Rig should be back this week.

Most of the day was spent on some contract work. But speak of the devil, heard that the faults on my Rig have been diagnosed and fixed, so I should have that back before the end of the week. Probably means I’ll have to set things up from scratch again...

I’m only going to be working half days on my project for the rest of the month as I’ve got a bunch of student projects to stay on top of, as well as contract bits and pieces. Bit of a shame, as I was on a roll, but it's that time of year.

Anyway, today I squeaked a couple of really good hours in and made something that I’ve been after for ages: Ivy

Little detail, but it takes the edge off some of the asset repetition. Super important.

My rig turned up! I’ve been really fortunate to have a laptop that’s pokey enough to work on comfortably, but man, it’s nice to have the speed of this machine again.

I did another little Art todo, and sculpted some toppers for the walls in one of the dungeon rooms. Seriously quick and dirty, but it’ll do.

Gave my second to last lecture this morning. Can’t believe I’ve done the whole thing remote.

Had a couple of hours spare, so made a heart container, then went through the build double checking my TODO/BUG lists. Added a load of items to both. Busy work, but it needed doing.

Tomorrow, I’m going to try and get the vlog done. Pray for me.

This is the first Vlog I've made using Davinci Resolve and I'm properly impressed. It's gobsmacking that you get all this for free! I'm still feeling my way around, but I'm really pleased that I've been able to find something decent to edit with, on Windows. That's a problem solved!

And yes, this months (late) Vlog is about the AI system. Enjoy!
