okay, used the testuser account to check it, i locked the parent category, which prevented sub categories as well to be used as targets, now the category is correctly preselected when clicking add-image .... lets get startet!

Thanks for that, I thought I had completely forgotten how to use a forum for a second. Submitted my three entries into Wildstyle for this year, I'm looking forward to losing to Kraftwerk again like I expect.

just in case flash animations go in film or in animation ?

Edit

humm..i was no clear, for flash animation i simply mean animation saved in flash format
i have no so clear the distinction you do between movie and animation

it is (short)"movie" opposite to little animated gif ?


Flash animation .flv like youtube or watever would hardly be web content.

short animation is generally meant to be a real short animation e.g. below 1 minute of play,
the "film" section is meant for longer productions ( 5minutes minimum ) and for better music background and story....
this compo set up is a test this year, and i did it for sockratease, but i see it is more confusing ( counting the entries allready submited )
and a little disappointing how few entries yet are achieved, perhaps it will grow until end of compo, but certainly next
years will be 2 still sections, and 1 movie section....


but perhaps we can get some nice gif animations to be used as smileys out of it ?░! cheesy

As I posted, I have 5 MB gif file looping. Could I use deviantart as uploader service? I will tri the shrunk the gif, but at 100x100 wouldn't be much left of it.

I'm sorry that you find yourself disappointed, Christian - but maybe this reminder will help:
firstly, you have stipulated to "tell a story" - for at least five minutes - AND the story should convey that "The Possibilities are Infinite."
These things will take time to dream up and develop - and you know well that even a short anim can take months to render, so I suspect that
you're right that "perhaps it will grow until end of compo," Relax!

thanks kam - i could not say better. here a little calculation:
assuming you render 5 minutes of fractal animation @ 25 fps, you need 7500 frames. i am on an animation that takes about 3 minutes per frame with 720p (some more, some less). then rendering takes 3*7 500= 22 500min = 375 h = 15,625 days of rendering (24/7). so it's hard enough to to get it done anyway - we'll see how many will cross the finish line in time  grin

in my eyes 5meg gifs dont make any sense ( no scrubbing, no load indicator, no music ) and i would suggest to submit your animation via standard youtube?

humm 5MB is far too much for a gif but not sufficient for a video of more then few seconds

Maybe the best here is use  swf (flash ) will be quite less heavy (at least if you don't needed to repeat) and will allow a soundtrack
and higher image quality

If you use gimp i may indicate a script for automatic conversion (but do on the original not on the gif)

I was thinking of if there would be a "innovation" or "innovation of the year" categrory. It would not have much partipicants, but that would be pretty interesting one, recognising fractal innovation of the  year.

This sounds like something that would work better as something handed out based on the full year's worth of activity here, rather than specific entries. Usually something will stand out, like the Mandelbulb or the Mandelbox in their respective years.

yes it is possible, just tell me what you want to move from where to where, or if you want something removed tell it as well

What is the maximum limit of size (kB) of a gif?
Can I replace my small smile?
