Uploading Renders/Images to DS

Uploading Renders/Images to DS

Postby djm » February 6th, 2015, 2:25 pm

Greetings fellow scarabs!

I have been thinking about this for some time now and it seems more clear with each image that I upload.. Am I the only one making actual renders here nowadays? I mean, I post everything from great actually finished renders to tests and shots from game-projects in the BGE, but I am the only one who does it - it seems.

I uploaded my cubes, and then adisjp uploaded his astroidfield and since then it has only been me (and this is 3+ months back). I'm just starting to wonder what is going on on the rendering side of things.. I know you lot render stuff too, but instead of only putting it on your DA-account - pasting it here as well would be nice. To show the public that DS has more than one active 3D-user around :P

I haven't been able to make any content for quite some time. Although, when I did do a ton of content last summer (The pirate thread, 8 models, 3 tuts, I started my nature thread) it didn't seem to entice anyone to join in. I even got posted on BlenderNation a couple of times, but I got almost no response from anyone outside of DS. People just look, download, leave. They don't join like they used to.

That said, if there's a reason why people aren't posting here, I'd love to know why. I'm assuming it's just because of the lack of activity, but that results in a catch-22 situation...people aren't posting because their is no activity but there will be no activity if people don't post...

Mhm, aye..

I am doing what I can do upload as much as possible here though, which is why I upload (almost) all of my projects in image-form here. I just really wish I was not the only one .. :(

Since we have 5ish active members (me, you, brektzar, bonrw1 and alpha) there should be more going on in terms of activity, "spreading the word" and such - if you ask me anyway.

Since my renders get quite a lot of attention on Facebook in Blender related groups, maybe I should start referring to DS in comments and such.. Hm.. Actually.. I am making a Speed-Model video of my latest render (because of high demand). Maybe, just maybe, I can embed the YouTube video in the gallery somehow??
[IF so I will use the DS link to refer people to the video instead of directly to youtube. PEople get to see how I did it nonetheless, but this way DS will get more traffic and potential members].

Very true. There have been a number of posts of work in the forum though, so maybe encouraging people to post on the main gallery as well would be helpful too.

Yes, for quite some time now! Bonrw actually just asked me this today too. I thought people already knew this!

You can embed YouTube/Vimeo/whatever to DS. When you are in the submit form, just put the URL to your YouTube video in the "Embeddable URL" field instead of uploading an image and DS will take care of the rest. Here's an example.

Also I really ought to get back to posting on DS's social media. It's been neglected for a while now and I'm not sharing people's work like I said I would do, so shame on me. Everyone's stuff is automatically shared in DS's RSS feed though!

I noticed that you stopped sharing my images on G+ haha! Shame on you for not sharing my stuff!!!! ;)

Thanks for the info about the URL field. I was looking at it earlier and I wanted to try (but the video is still uploading.. will be done in about 5 minutes).
As soon as the video has been uploaded I will post it here on DS and spread the word!


EDIT: I have posted the video on DS now, and every link (except on my SheldinLP FB page) is forwarding to DS. Hopefully this will generate some traffic, Irascible! :) Especially since the demand was very big after the image post xD

EDIT #2: I also noticed that I accidently uploaded it to the completely wrong YouTube account... :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall:
