Time for VividCon programming submissions! Like last year, submissions will be taken via Googledocs. Submissions are open until Monday, March 2nd.

----> Submit vidshows and panels here! <----

----> Nominate fandoms for the fandom programming here! <----

The forms can be edited right up until submissions close on Monday, March 2nd. (I don't know exactly when, as it depends when I'm at a computer to close submissions; it'll be sometime that night in EST, so please don't wait until late Monday to submit.) When you submit a form, it gives you a link to go back to if you want to edit. If you lose the link and want to change something later, fill the form out again and resubmit. Your last submission will be taken as your final one.

Here are some additional handy links:

questions about vidding comics

[personal profile] ghost_lingering posting in [community profile] vidding
People who vid comics! I'm trying to figure out some source acquisition/workflow stuff and I have questions.

The comic I'm looking to vid is Saga, which is an Image Comics title. Image sells DRM free downloads, which is what I'm leaning towards using for the vid, but they have different formats available and I'm not sure which would be best for vidding purposes: PDF, ePub, & CBR/CBZ. Any recommendations? Are there any reasons why I should not use their digital files for vidding purposes and use scans instead?

I'm going to be using Adobe programs for this and the first stop will be prepping the images in Photoshop. If I go with PDFs the workflow is fairly straightforward, but I'm not as familiar with ePub or CBR/CBZ files. What would I need to do to prep/transcode those files if those are the best options?

(Also, not sure how I should tag this -- Tech: clipping? A new tag?)

(Late newsletters are better than no newsletters, right?)

We had several technical issues to deal with recently, among others a problem with creating new accounts that is now resolved. The server move went smoothly, with minimal disruptions, and we now have plenty of space.

We are as always dealing with outside requests, currently for example a fair use case, and we're still working on several ongoing projects, some of which we hope to be able to announce soon. We're also collecting ideas and planning for 2015.

On Saturday 21 we held another editing chat. You can find a summary of what was discussed here.

To be able to implement our plans we're looking to expand the committee: Recruitment is still open until February 23. If you're interested in Fanlore and want to help improve it, consider joining the Wiki committee! You can find more information here.

Lastly, the Fanlore Twitter account is doing well, gaining new followers at a steady pace.

One week to registration!

Signups for attending memberships for Vividcon will open next Saturday, February 28th, at 12 PM EST. Here are some interesting and useful facts about signups!

1) Attending memberships will cost $100. Attending members can also choose to purchase a $25 wristband to get access to the open bar (providing alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks - be nice to the bartenders, at least one of them has requested us for years) at Club Vivid and/or a $20 ticket for the Saturday taco bar lunch. BE AWARE! If you are 21 or older you cannot purchase the wristband that allows you to get only non-alcoholic drinks, due to hotel rules. That option is only available to members between 18 and 20.

2) Attending members can also purchase a spot on the Orphan Vids table for $10. If you'd like to sell DVDs or other tangible media of your work at the con, you can get a spot in the con suite and the money will be collected for you by con volunteers.

3) 140 attending memberships are available this year. Based on recent experience, we will probably not fill immediately, so if you aren't at your computer at noon Saturday you're likely to be just fine. However, if you would like to give someone else the necessary information and have them sign up for you, that's okay too. Required information is: Badge name, e-mail, social media ID (if desired), name, address, phone, whether you want to be left out of the program book, whether you want to be marked in the program as a source for your vids, whether you want to buy a spot on the orphan vids table, a lunch ticket, and/or a wristband, and whether you want to volunteer for one or two hours. (Please do!)

4) You have three weeks to pay for your membership once you register. Payment can be made by Paypal or by check or money order in US dollars.

BE AWARE! Once you have paid for your membership, our refund policy states that you cannot be refunded your membership fee unless the con fills and people come off of a waitlist! Memberships can always be rolled over to the year after they were paid for, whether the con fills or not.

5) Please do not pay for your membership until you've received an e-mail from me confirming that you have a place. I'll be around on the afternoon of the 28th so that I can respond to people who sign up in the first rush; after that this may take up to 48 hours, so if you don't hear from me right away don't panic. (You should receive an prompt automated email confirming that your registration was received; if you don't get that, please do contact me directly to let me know!)

You can contact me at with any questions. Yay Vividcon!

 Vidders! If you wish to make a brand new vid to premiere at this year's Vividcon Club Vivid, here is where you sign up!
Club Vivid vids are to be submitted by:

  Friday, April 24th!! (any timezone - if it's still April 24th where you are, you can still submit)

You have two months but that is going to fly by so start now!
All club vivid premieres must have their song approved before being submitted - either for appropriateness for the dance party or to see if anyone else wanted the same song. Song choice is on a first come first served basis.

To sign up for a song please fill out this google form.
 You can submit multiple requests if you wish.

Only new vids will be accepted for premieres, of course, but closer to the event we will have a suggestions page for people to recommend older vids for us to show at the party.

What is Club Vivid anyway?
It's the best party of the year, that's what. Those of you who are new to vvc and new to club vivid, the idea is pretty simple - people make vids to danceable music and we dance to these vids and a bunch of fan favourites at the con and it's awesome fun. It's a VJ'd show and we set aside around 2 and 1/3 hours of vid time to brand new vids by vidders.

Anyone can submit vids to be shown and they will be selected according to the following priorities:
  1. attending vidders first choice vid (or VJ choice if no preference)
  2. a small selection of the VJ's preferred not-yet-chosen vids, as required for balance of music or fandoms. These are selected from any as yet unchosen premieres.
  3. supporting members first choice vid
  4. everyone else's 1st choice submissions
  5. attending members 2nd choice followed by supporting, then non-member etc until all vids are chosen or there's no time left.
We often get song requests that are harder to dance to but still fun and we withold the right to, should they be hard to position in the show, give the vidder the option of moving their vid to the Premieres show which can often be a better venue for some vids. Vidders will be contacted ahead of time and asked if they are ok doing that.

My general advice for song choice is:
  1. 3 to 5 minute vids are ideal length for club vivid vids but honestly any length is possible and it depends from song to song
  2. Long beatless breaks in songs and slow openings can be accommodated but they make placing the vid in the mix harder as they can break up the flow.
  3. Slow dance has never really gone down well at club vivid, alas. Nor has country but I think there's exceptions that could break that rule. If it's fun, it can be a blast at club vivid.
  4. Please please please find a good quality source for your audio as it will really help people enjoy the vid more. If you need help with this, ask.
  5. Feel free to add credits after the music but note that they may be edited out when mixed for the live show. They will be intact on the dvd. MTV-style credits are of course totally fine too.
  6. Any footage is good footage for club vivid. Seriously, people have danced to Bambi in previous years and loved it.

Beta Request - Roswell

[personal profile] comradeocean posting in [community profile] vidding

I just finished making my first vid and would love some help looking it over. It was done in Cinelerra/on Linux and I don't have access to Windows or a Mac so it would be especially great if someone could test it on their machine with whatever video player they regularly use. (it works on VLC and mplayer for me)

I had some issues with audio sync while rendering, so feedback on transitions/timing for further tweaking would be really appreciated. If you're familiar with Roswell or the Maria/Michael pairing, I'd also love to hear your thoughts about clip choices or if it even makes sense!

The video is about 26 MBs and 4 minutes long.

Thanks =)

It's that time again: time to start talking about vidshows!

This is the place to toss out ideas for vidshows you'd like to see at VividCon this year. The official call for programming suggestions and volunteers will go up next Monday, Feb. 23rd; this post is for brainstorming and discussion.

(You don't have to want to VJ a vidshow to bring it up for brainstorming; if you have a vidshow you just want to attend, mention it, and maybe someone will adopt it!)

You can view the panels from 2002 - 2012 here, 2013 here and 2014 here.

For more information on panels, you can visit the VividCon programming FAQ.

Hi Vidders!

[community profile] escapade_con is currently accepting vid submissions for its songvid show until tomorrow night, 2/16 at 10PM Pacific Time. You can submit premieres, festivids, recent vids, older vids... whatever you'd like! Escapade is a slash-focused con, but not everything submitted to the vidshow is a slash vid, so don't let that discourage you! See more information and instructions on how to submit here.

The mpeg2 is dead, long live the mpeg4.
  • We will no longer accept m2v/wav files for vids.
  • All vids must be encoded with LlamaEnc 3 - which is currently in testing for Windows, Mac and Linux.
  • If your vid is not encoded with LlamaEnc 3, we will re-encode it with LlamaEnc 3.
  • If you encode your vid with Llamaenc 3, we will play that file at the con.
  • For the con dvd, your vid will be converted by us using the Llamaenc 3 mp4 file as a master.
LlamaEnc 3 is currently available for testing. You can download LlamaEnc 3 for WindowsMac and Linux from my github account here:

If you are going to submit vids to vividcon this year, 
please test LlamaEnc 3 immediately so I can find and squash any bugs. You do not want to be discovering a bug on your system the night of Preieres submissions!
That's basically it. LlamaEnc3 will encode your vids in the following manner:
  • If the video has a frame rate greater than 30fps, the frame rate will be converted to 29.97fps (so that it is also correct for the con dvd). Otherwise, we will keep the frame rate of the source you submitted.
  • The maximum resolution for submission is 1920x1080 - the vid will be scaled down until both dimensions are less than or equal to this.
  • Audio will be converted to 48000Hz Stereo.
  • The volume of your vid will be adjusted to have a calculated listening volume of -16db.
Once vividcon vid submissions are open, we will announce the minimum LlamaEnc 3 version for submission. It shouldn't be too different than the test version here.
