20240527 This Week’s YouTube Update

Explorers Emporium on YouTube

ADVENTURERS!!! This is this weeks update. Thank you to all the wonderful subscribers. We gained another 140+ to the family. Super appreciated. We are doing a “how to” video showing and talking about working with green screens, instead of just showing what we are doing. And, we have the first part of of the next Candela Obscura all shot and being prepped. Coming out great. Also, we will have some more Dungeon Delver Dilemmas shorts coming out. FUN week ahead.

Top videos this week are still “Crafting Explorers: Laced Leather Bracers” and “20240407 3D Stackable Building Pt 2 for TTRPG or Mini Movie Set”. But, these two are doing really well right now. Definitely FUN to watch!

Green Screen Uses 20240523

20240131 Shopkeeper and the Skeleton Crew

We have all seen the amazing uses of Green Screens in Marvel and DC super hero movies. What is truly amazing is how readily available green screens and movie making software has become. Not to mention, computers have really gained in speed and resources for saving large, complex projects.

It is funny to think back in 1995, when my wife and I built our first children’s museum. We had a state of the art “Gateway” computer that had a massive 500 mb hard drive. Yah… that is megabyte- half a gig. We thought we would never fill that hard drive up. When we render video for the museum, the largest that an image could be was 480P. The movie files were HUGE. And, rendering a 30 second video could take DAYS. Processing was painful. And, when you hit the render button knowing it would take a day to create… Your greatest fear was a power failure.

Here is a FUN video we recently shot using a green screen and a green outfit. We were creating video parts for our Candela Obscura Character Creation series. We hope seeing the process inspires creativity for others. Enjoy!
