#1 low-mid open team looking for mentor in Mentoring

hi, im tay. i've been leading the same team for the past 5 seasons with 4/6 of the same members, and this is our first season in open. we just got a full 6 again for the first time since june, so we're ready to return to semi normalcy. we're looking for someone to help us pull some loose strings together and help us notice things that we'd otherwise miss. we all want to get better and any help is appreciated. we'd like someone to sort of stick with us for a while, so if you'd like a team that's not going to fall apart to help reach the mystical place referred to as "high open" then we're your dudes.

add me if you'd like to help and again anyone who's willing to show us stuff is much appreciated.

#8 Zapping, by Gero a TF2 Frag video. in TF2 General Discussion
4812622Bad choice of words. It's great that people like you are so helpful. I never knew things like smooths without people in them were bad. Is there some sort of great compendium of tips for making frag videos?

I don't know if they are bad persay, but I always just saw them as somewhat lazy. If you are just smoothing around an empty map, it doesn't really add anything to the video and you can't "screw it up". I honestly love smoothing because I can capture a certain moment in game and getting a smooth just right is the most rewarding feeling. There's something new in every demo that you can record that no one else has seen before, while I'm sure everyone has seen badlands spire or granary middle plenty of times.

#17 Retrospect by grid in TF2 General Discussion
dellortI liked it but grid is capable of making much better clips.

I'm sure my views may be different from others since I often appreciate the editing more than the frags, but I am often disappointed when a well known editor makes a more simple clip for a team/player etc. I certainly understand the focus should be on the frags in cases like this, but it always feels like it's just a waste of potential when a really good editor does minimal editing to great frags. I'm not saying grid should have made another shift, but I feel like he could have done something more interesting with it. However, who am I to say I guess, for all I know it could have been, and likely was at keepy / skappa's request the editing was kept more minimal.

#8 low-mid open team lf med in Recruitment (looking for team)

apologies for the earlyish bump, but our status has changed and you will now be the main for at least the entirety of this season, after that it's hard to say. we will 100% be going open and have all but one member paid that will hopefully be doing that soon so we are all set.

#13 Best way to record POV with comms? in Q/A Help
london_callingThomas123Voice_enable 0 or something like that in console to turn off in game voice chat.
i think this stops voice from being transmitted as well, not sure though.

I'm fairly sure the command to turn down the audio is "voice_scale 0". It still allows you to transmit, and shows the voice bubbles as you receive, but you will not hear it.

#1 low-mid open team lf med in Recruitment (looking for team)

hi, i'm tay. i've been leading the same team with essentially the same roster for the past 5 seasons, and this time around we are finally going open. a few weeks ago, our med's fan broke, and as a result of an incompetent computer repair store, he still has a broken fan in addition to a broken motherboard and other dumb stuff. he has no idea when he'll be back, and with only a few days left i guess we really badly need a med for the time being. you will be the main med for the entirety of the season, after that it is hard to say if you can even fathom that far into the future at this point.

i have no idea how to rank us as a team, but i feel in the low-mid range is fairly accurate. we scrim most nights 8-9 est, if youre interested add me and we'll play some videos games. http://steamcommunity.com/id/tayw97/

pocket - viscamus
roamer - tay
scout - blossom
scout - ex
demo - powergamer
medic - crafty / you ????

edit: heres some nice things some nice people have said about us in the past, if that matters to you for some reason

#14 signature by tay: a funky visions app clip in TF2 General Discussion
JasI've noticed that all these funky vision app clips are all following the same style, even down to several camera moves that are getting over used now (the camera pan behind a static prop such as the mesh fence).

I feel like all you aspiring editors are basically trying to copy-paste someone else's style.

Just an observation.

you're welcome to your opinion, but I don't believe that's true. do I take inspiration from other editors? sure, but I think my style is unique from others and I never once set out with the intention of copying another editor's style.

in regards to all the app clips being the same, I don't think that's true. here's a sampling of some app clips from the past year, both accepted and rejected.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yAp-yzf82uQ

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qN1Rfpbveio
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqL4hWbAooE
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PZs7QUMRocY

I think there's a wide style of editing present there, and to call them all the same isn't doing justice to the editors.

again, I'm not trying to be argumentative as you're entitled to your opinion as am I, I just wanted to give my side on the topic.

#1 signature by tay: a funky visions app clip in TF2 General Discussion

hi guys, it's been a while since i've posted something of mine here. what i end up saying may end up being a bit of text so if you just want to see the clip and nothing else here it is:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lWmkxfFkXWk

at the beginning of the summer i told my good friend and editor cjc i was going to spend this summer getting better at editing. i started with this video, and i'd like to consider this my way of finishing off the summer. i set out with the goal of being in funky visions from the start, but at this point regardless of if what i've done is enough, i'm very happy with my progress i've made over these two months and that's enough for me.

i'd like to personally thank everyone on tftv for helping me out from the beginning and putting up with my posts. i first put colours here to an incredibly supportive reception in late june, and everyone has been nothing but kind and helpful since. because of this, i'd really really like to give back in any way possible. it may not be much, but if anyone has any questions at all regarding editing, whether it's render settings or colors or effects, please please add me. i'd be more than willing to help out with any trouble you may be having, as well as make a tutorial for anything requested. there were so many people that helped me when i started, i'd like to do the same.

anyway that's the whole spiel, thanks guys and i promise this will be the last shorter length clip i post, whatever comes next will be a full frag video.

tay.

#31 demo call in TF2 General Discussion

bump, now with accompanying video. sorry for the amount of bumps, but i'm in desperate need of some frags. for the clip i'm working on, what i really could use are airshots although i won't exactly be picky.

duke and atidere, sorry but your demo is crashing. ): if i didn't use your demo in the past, that is likely the reason. its pretty bad for how much its limiting my demos.
