Post by dustin » Fri Sep 19, 2008 8:23 pm

Can you create a catchy video that includes Lux gameplay? Submit a video or motion-capture and win fabulous prizes! First prize is $250.

Cutting and editing is allowed, but not required. Adding music and/or voice-over might be a good idea. You may want to speed up gameplay videos.

Enter as many videos as you like. Upload them to YouTube or another website and link them in this thread. Videos must include Lux gameplay and be shorter then 5 minutes.

Deadline for submissions: October 24th.
Winners announced at the award ceremony on October 26th.

To video-capture on Mac OS X, use <a href="http://www.ambrosiasw.com/utilities/sna ... apzProX</a> or <a href="http://www.jingproject.com/">Jing</a>.
To video-capture on Windows, use one of these <a href="http://all-streaming-media.com/record-v ... htm">video capture softwares</a>.
Or use a normal video-camera to capture footage of Lux on your computer.

What's the thoughts/policy on using copyrighted/commerical music? Would you rather it be royalty free music? How about images?

Official first place won't be awarded to a video using copyrighted music (unless you get permission to use it).

You're free to use the American or Ancient Lux music, which you can get here:

I guess this is technically more of a Lux commercial than a demonstration of gameplay, but...

YouTube version

Higher Quality Flash Version

Enjoy!

hey Dustin,
I should have my video submission done by the end of day. Hoping the deadline is later today rather than sooner. :D

Excellent commercial, Mr. Truck!

Dude, you have to throw "Because Taking Over the World is Fun" @ the end of the commercial. I was waiting for it and it never came.

I eagerly await the MWHM submission! I laughed out loud watching the trailer. :)

Ok, I finished my submission. I had some troubles with the YouTube upload so here is a link to the Flash file for now (it's 9.5 MB so it will probably load quite s-s-slow for all but hi-speed users):
Lux Education in Two Minutes



BTW - I like MB's better too!

Awesome work on the videos MB and sasquatch. One note, sasquatch, I kinda wish you had used footage of actual players playing and not bots. I think for the uninitiated, the board moving that fast may be a confusing demonstration of real Lux gameplay. Other than that, though, the video was absolutely spot-on.

Success! Here's the YouTube link:

Errr, you probably want to hit "watch in high quality"... there's a link near the lower right corner of the video for that. YouTube's "normal quality" looks like I have my glasses on backwards. :smt017
