Thread Building a PC for Photo/Video Editing and Gaming. Need help finding the right monitors.
I agree about focusing on getting a quality color range monitor over 120 Hz if your doing more editing than gaming. Also, If your doing lots of video work, I would suggest knocking down the gpu a tier and get a faster processor like the 3900x; that should net you better performance. as far as I know, fast GPUs only help to a point unless your doing crazy stuff with premiere. Definitely doesn’t help a lot with after effects.

Thread MusicianERA |OT| Producers and Artists Welcome
Hiya. I'm wondering if someone has any recommendations on a good MIDI pad trigger I can play with sticks. My acoustic drum situation is unfortunately gone now, and while I'd like to go back to an E-Kit that I had before, I just don't have any space in my tiny ass apartment :( My current plan was to get one of these: But I want something I can really play drums with. In a perfect world I would just get an Octapad, but those cost like 800 bucks. What I need is basically the sensitivity of an Octapad, but a Dumb MIDI trigger version that doesnt have all the samples and whatnot built in, and is hopefully much cheaper. I am planning on using my super old copy of Steven Slate Drums with it, through Logic, with a Behringer UMC404HD Audio interface. Any tips would be appreciated!

I tried out a Vlad / Crimson style deck with Braum and defense buffs that was pretty fun; you can get like endless units out of the Crimson Curator, especially by using surprise defense buffs at the right times to keep them alive for even a round or two. Last night I had an insane comeback where I had 2 hp, they were at 20, turn 9. they made a brutal attack and I defended so that I would survive with just Lux and karma and make it to turn 10 barely. Then I dusk till dawn and get 2 more karmas (they tried to deny me and fizzled one lol), which gave me a final spark, and then unloaded on their weakest units and 20-0'd them just in time. WHEW (it was ranked too)

Thread Mark Cerny is a masterful orator
I dont know if he's a standout orator. But I like him, and he did pretty awesome job breaking down the thought process behind the architecture in a very understandable way in a low key slide presentation. I know many people were disappointed thinking it would be a full reveal, but I thought it was really interesting, especially the approach to 3D audio. Definitely makes me excited for whats to come!

Thread PlayStation 5 System Architecture Deep Dive |OT| Secret Agent Cerny
That was super cool to see precisely where bottlenecks were coming from and how they designed to eliminate them. I like the approach they seem to be continuing to take in making the performance come through without much or any setup; I think that's pretty big, especially seeing firsthand how much time and effort it takes from crazy smart people to make optimization happen on a game. And Im super hyped for the 3D audio! That's an often underappreciated, but massive part of games ( and moves of course). Glad they are taking a similar approach there as well! I might Day 1 this console given the BC capability, especially since I use it as my streaming app box too (which im assuming will be much snappier too). Now Im just praying the controllers have BC too.

lol , I love them even when they are spammed at me(as I plan my comeback)At first I thought I was gonna wait till I saved up for enough to make my perfect deck, but I think it’s more fun to just build it as I play. It almost makes more sense to craft it over time because you can see what works and doesn’t in practiceas you go. And since you can’t rank tiers down I don’t see a downside. ill pass that along, I sit by the folks who made it :D

Haha I think I will get out of Bronze, but I genuinely don't know where I will stand just yet. I actually just played an amazing ranked game where a Jinx + Draven were flexing on me, shooting lots of rockets off, while they Darius-facepalmed me about 80 times that game. I was genuinely making a some misplays and weird decisions though... And right when I was at like 4hp and they had 8 with a full row, I attacked with my battering ram, rallied with Kat, and then beat him lol. Was very satisfying to wave him many Braum Goodbye's at the end XD

I'm glad its really out there that we are in this for the long haul! Very excited for things we plan to both make, and fix :DI think if you want a super active community, Reddit a place to go for sure. We typically just go to wherever players already are (likely because they like it there in the first place) vs. building yet another different place they have to visit. That said I kinda like smaller places like this , as things get lost fast in massive places like Reddit.

Happy first vault day everyone! I was up trying to nudge myself up to level 11 last night but couldn’t make it...but I got a lot of wildcard upgrades which should help. My Rally deck is starting to gain some steam already! Having Lucian, Senna, some follower, and Kat makes things really awkward for your opponent lol. If they attack they might level up Lucian, or give me a free rally on their turn, but either way I still get 1-2 free hits with kat alone. The best was when one time they blocked her, and all it did was weaken their wall-follower enough that my entire squad could safely go in again!

Being sneaky in this way is fun, but just keep in mind that it only works if you recall as a Fast spell, since the action happens after blockers are locked in. I think you could pull it off as an attacker using burst, or in response to them using a fast spell. I remember making the mistake of dragging up to block, then recalling, then realizing this and going....Shiiiiiiiiit. As for the Discord vs. Thread; I personally prefer a thread too, but a Discord channel just for Looking-For-Games could be nice, and would make it easier to chat, jump in and out without much setup, etc. I like discussions on here way more though.

Thread 1080p vs 4k
As someone who owns a 4K tv (got it rather cheap), I don’t care that much about it. It’s of course nice to have more sharpness, but in most cases if I could trade it for a more full, vibrant scene, better post FX, or a rock solid or higher frame rate, I would choose any of those in a heartbeat over higher resolution. It’s the definition of diminishing returns IMO. (Unless your talking talking about VR or something)

Thread Starting League of Legends in 2020
A lot of great advice in here, so plus one to all that. I’ll just add that remember you dont have to know everything all at once. Just focus on the basics, like getting gold from creeps, winning in the lane your in, gwtting comfortable with some champions, etc. You can even buy recommended items and not worry about things too much. Then you can save the more macro strategies, rotations, item builds, and learning a wide variety of roles for later. It can be overwhelming if you think you need to know exactly what jungle path to take and when to push a creep wave while rotating properly and all that Jazz on day one. Just have fun and make some friends with cool fandoms you get matched with or join a Discord like the one here. I hope you have fun! The league train isn’t stopping anytime soon so it’s never too late :)

Thread I auditioned for lead vocalist in a band and I got the part. Only slightly panicking
Speaking as someone who also felt like I had imposter syndrome a lot.. my advice is simply, “if other people who know what they’re doing think your good enough, your good enough”. They have a band, and they want you to be in it; so you must be good enough and deserve to give this a shot . It doesn’t have to be one or the other in terms of your job too, let them know about your situation, hopes, and fears, just be honest. Maybe they can work with you there so you can do both. Congrats! EDIT: well shit, I just saw the update too. All can say now is it seems like things went well at first, but isn’t working out due to a lot of non musical things combined with you recent struggles. If you leave this band, when your in a more stable situation again I would say keep searching and maybe an different set of bandmates might turn the situation around. But sorry to hear they are being kinda shitty :(

Thread Where were you personally during the first day of the 2010s and where are you at now.
I’m also 30 now. At 20 this time, I was in college in Cincinnati in a cold winter, working my second internship for Procter and Gamble, learning how to do some 3D simulation very very slowly. I was trying to learn everything I could at the time, not sure of where I would be physically or career wise within motion graphics. Had never lived out of Ohio. Was single. I’ve been in LA for almost 8 years now, and I somehow work in gaming, on a game I was playing 10 years prior in an open beta somehow! It’s been a wild ride and I’m pretty thankful overall I ended up with a rare staff motion graphics opportunity in the gaming industry. Now I’m living in a warm(but expensive AF) place with someone I love, so definitely a big upward this decade overall. There were of course challenges along the way, but things worked out well.

As someone who lives in AE every day...I can say this thing is almost exclusively for Video Editors in Final Cut or people doing some crazy stuff in Logic maybe.

I just played a draft game earlier today where I was winning by a mile, but wasn’t quite aggressive enough and it went into late game...I went from winning to suddenly facing the Brightsteel banner 9/9 bro who shields his whole team, on play/attack. (screaming internally) But then somehow I managed to perfectly play my hand of buffs defensively, take one big hit I could survive, then turn around and use challenger+buffs just enough that I could take out his Brightsteel and wipe most of his crew and sneak the win! Close games like these are my favorites by far (helps when I come out on top though of course, haha) Now I just need to do this 4 more times to get a double 7 win run!

Thread Riot Games announces League of Legends card game Legends of Runeterra
For those worried about someone jumping in and buying all the craziest decks right away; While you can purchase Wildcards (which can be exchanged for whatever card you want), there is a weekly limit to how many you can buy per week. This cap should heavily cut down on Pay-To-Win being an issue, leaving much of your collecting happening through just playing the game to get free drops (which also often contain wildcards!) That aside, the hope is that even with fewer cards, decision making skills can often beat out seemingly crazy decks; One of the the goals was to prevent stale metas that had any few decks dominating the scene. Basically not just what you play, but how you play it. We will see how this works out initially though, since it’s been less than a day since our preview began!

Thread Riot Games One Year Later: My Reflections
I don’t speak for the whole company. But I’m personally part of the group that feels mixed about how they handled some things. But overall I am seeing a lot of drives for change and respect/support for it. It really sucks to see some of the Blind app comments, but it makes sense a few people with those views might be there. Even they know the vast vast majority of the company sees these problems as real and important and want to eliminate them in the future. I guess it’s important to highlight those people still exist, but it seems off for the article to give more weight to a small minority (who also would likely never speak that way non-anonymously from what I see). The last quote is pretty solid to me. I do see a giant company full of people who care about each other and what we make. More than another place I’ve worked personally. If I didn’t think we were making serious changes and real attempts to improve I might not still be here. I hope things continue to trend better, and hope other studios can learn from both our mistakes and solutions. And I also hope all of you keep advocating for the people who make games!

Hi friends! I know I've been flying under the radar lately, but I'm a motion graphics artist at Riot who works on tons of login screen animations among other things. I wanted to share a tutorial I recorded for this interested in seeing how we animate and rig the characters of said screens in After Effects. Enjoy, and let me know what you think! (Note the target audience is After Effects users, but you might get a kick out of it anyways haha) Thanks!

Thread The PC Builders Thread ("I Need a New PC") v2
I’m considering converting my old i7 2600k computer with 24 gigs of ram into a NAS, with some media serving and maybe something I could even do video / motion graphics work off of if possible? And have a slice of it work as a time machine drive for my apple laptop? While being able to archive my windows based files too... Anyone have advice or thoughts about this? I’m mostly worried it would consume too much power in the long run vs just buying a Synology 4 bay station to do similar stuff

Hey friends! I bought the rest of my PC parts on Black Friday, and just want a sanity check with some of you to make sure I didn’t mess up. I’m making this after effects workstation slash moderate gaming machine! Things I’m wondering a bit about: -I’m hoping to overclock my ram slightly -And possibly over lock my CPU a bit as well (or get a higher adaptive ceiling if possible) I won’t have more than a single GPU, and I might add 32gb more ram, 1 spinny hard drive and ssd in the future as needed. My 650W PSU should be able to handle this yes?

Yeah, I heard about the rumored news release on the 7th. Im gonna pre-order and pray on this one, Im also afraid prices might get crazy due to shortages also! As long as I can get this within the next month or two, it should be good.

After months of back and forth, I decided to wait for the i9 9900K over the Threadripper 2! But now I'm google the i9 every single day waiting for release date news lol ;( I just hope it drops in October at some point...

Thread The PC Builders Thread ("I Need a New PC") v2
I think given the current climate of crazy priced new GPU's, and the Threadripper being pretty beast,I'm gonna try to make a computer roughly like this: Threadripper 2950X (the 16-core v2 one) 1080Ti (for hopefully 300-400$ if possible) be Quiet Silent Base Case 601 (when it s out) be Quiet! 750W PSU 32 GB ram, (Hoping to get it up alot more if ram prices ever come down) Noctua NH something something TR4 for more quietness Probably 2 M.2 Drives, 1 SSD and 1 Fat HDD. I'm trying to make a monster that will last for 6-7 years like my last build, sans a GPU upgrade at some point. I'm a motion designer, so I will be doing some side work and projects on this thing, and some gaming of course. Sucks that After Effects won't be running top notch, but everything else should benefit from this build I though I think. The question now is what motherboard would work for this? I'd like 8 Ram slots, and a built in Mobo DAC if possible. I don't intend to get more than one GPU or SLi, even later. Recommendations welcome!

Thread The PC Builders Thread ("I Need a New PC") v2
I actually didn't realize TR offered 8 slots... thats actually super helpful. I could probably get to 64Gb more reasonably over time with that! Yeah I will probably not want to waiting even longer at this point for a new intel HEDT, I really want to make this build sooner than later :p I think I am basically stuck with Nvidia for the foreseeable future due to CUDA's though. But yeah thats why I want a moderately baller card, hoping for a 2070 if I can my hands on one!

Thread The PC Builders Thread ("I Need a New PC") v2
I'm currently trying to decide what to build within the next few months; TLDR is I'm an animator who wants to sometimes to video and motion graphics work and a bit of 3D. My weapon of choice, after effects, almost exclusively relies on fast core speeds, and is horrible at multicore stuff. I was going to wait for the 9900k, but looking at the speeds, I feel like a 16-core threadripper isn't much slower, and offers way more future proofing (and the cores would be used from time to time on renders and multitasking). My question is though, do you all see a future where more cores will actually help for day-to-day use? I feel like we still aren't there yet, but I want to make this computer and not having to touch it much for the next 7 years like I did with my last one. I'd rather deal with sub-optimization and priciness now for a bit if it means I get a pretty future proofed build. PS: I'm so sad that RAM is so expensive because I need LEAST 32GB, wanted 64 ideally but probably shouldnt right now... :p

Thread The PC Builders Thread ("I Need a New PC") v2
Luckily I actually don't need much GPU power which will make all this way less expensive. I just want a single card baller enough to do decent simpler real-time work and simulation, and game. The 3D I want to learn is generally more efficient/simple vs. turbo realistic stuff. I think I'd like to get into some game engine work, maybe UE4, with along with a bit more Cinema 4D action. But at the end of the day for freelance stuff I'd likely use AE the most.

Wow. I was extremely skeptical as I really didn’t like, and at times hated the last few FF’s. Barrett’s voice acting still really bugs me, but overall I was super impressed and can’t wait now! The combat system seems like a really nice middle ground, as I was afraid it wouldn’t ever slow down and get tactical. And dear lord it’s gorgeous, my pro awaits thee!
