/c/TenFoward: Your home-away-from-home for all things Star Trek!

Re-route power to the shields, emit a tachyon pulse through the deflector, and post all the nonsense you want. Within reason of course.

~ 1. No bigotry. This is a Star Trek community. Hating someone off of their race, culture, creed, sexuality, or identity is not remotely acceptable. Mistakes can happen but do your best to respect others.

~ 2. Keep it civil. Disagreements will happen both on lore and preferences. That's okay! Just don't let it make you forget that the person you are talking to is also a person.

~ 3. Use spoiler tags. This applies to any episodes that have dropped within 3 months prior of your posting. After that it's free game.

~ 4. Keep it Trek related. This one is kind of a gimme but keep as on topic as possible.

~ 5. Keep posts to a limit. We all love Star Trek stuff but 3-4 posts in an hour is plenty enough.

~ 6. Try to not repost. Mistakes happen, we get it! But try to not repost anything from within the past 1-2 months.

~ 7. No General AI Art. Posts of simple AI art do not 'inspire jamaharon' and fuck over our artist friends.

Fun will now commence.

May want to check your file. After 12 seconds, it blanks out until 1:22 and continues the normal scene.

For freak's sake! ..... after all that work and trying to upload it and find new settings and new hosts and new setups to try to get a simple video up ... I got screwed by a video render that had an artifact in my edit ... fixed and reuploaded using catbox ... it's no wonder there aren't that many new video memes out there

as always ... thanks for the help

Unfortunately that just happens sometimes. Gotta rewatch it really closely a few times after rendering. Good job, BTW. I enjoyed it :)

It's really nuts when you think about it. I just rushed through it not wanting to spend too much time making it ... after all it's only 13 seconds. I wanted to make it short on purpose because like you said, the longer it is, the harder it is to upload and host. In the end I think it ended up taking an hour ... to make a 13 second clip!

Glad you enjoyed it .... I'll put the phaser down now

No worries. This sort of thing is part of what deters me from even trying my hand at that branch of memery. Also, the sneaking suspicion that I might like it too much.

It's experimenting and testing on my part ... It feels like the early internet ... people are trying to figure out how to create new meme videos and it's all a mess right now ... I'm really hoping that someone will figure out a better system for video on Lemmy ... in the meantime, hopefully it won't cause too many seizures.
