"And the template goes to..."

 

 


I have uploaded three screenshots from my project. The job secuence, the entire amount of files I recorded, the huge amount of data occuping my hard disk (140Gb - 505 files) and the time it took to record all my mates characters and later video edition, that I cannot specify but surely around 24h.
I'm not saying we deserve to be among the top five, but I saw the vids from the 5th to the 10th and some of them have better works than 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th. I'm sorry for being brutally honest, but it's what I feel.

The 2nd it's just an After Effects template. He just recorded some vids and inlaid them in an specific order and even hasn't changed the template info with some Black Desert lore, leaving us an amazing reading about the Hastings Battle.
The 3rd would have some kind of merit if at least he had waited to see NPCs do something interesting and not only record towns with NPCs dancing in an infinite loop.
The 4th have a 90% of its footage from the cinematics, and also an spoiler, thanks.
The 5th... well, ok. It's she playing flute.

In our vid (and others among who didn't deserve to be up there but enough to remain with the other 15s) we used more than a single song (it's not always easy), the ingame tools in regards of camera movement, light effects... Recording characters voice apart and mounting it later on the edition. We had to ask some of guild members and unknown (and kind) people to perform a role. In our case we had to wait until ingame night to start recording. Maybe looks easy but ingame night (dark night) starts at 23h and at 3:30am ends. In real time are around than 30 or 40min to be prepared, have the people ready and record the shots (and hope it goes well to avoid a +3h waiting until next night).

Is just my opinion (with some truly)

Thanks for the 10th place and thanks to all participants on my vid, I'm proud of them. And congratulations to 1st place.

Greetings.

Congrats to the winners! I was really hoping I would at least get top 20 with my vid but I guess not.

Isn't the second video pretty much breaking several of the event rules??

"• The video must be created by yourself"

That's really debatable at most, it's pretty much a copy paste job, using a project template that has absolutely nothing to do with BDO, and another rule stated "• Editing the footage is allowed (video as well as the music); must be recognizable as original content of BDO"... The battle of Hastings is BDO content?? okay.

 

Now, this isn't a "I'm mad because I didn't win" post, I knew before submitting my video that I had absolutely no chance of winning, my video sucked (and wasn't worthy of winning for several reasons :P), I just did it for the title, but, had I known that we were allowed to use project templates, I could've easily made an awesome video with random BDO clips in 10 min.

Most people spent WAY longer time, making WAY better videos. Although it is subjective, I mean, c'mon now, several other winning videos are just seemingly random clips as well...

So many good videos made by the community, and these are the winners? (though a couple of the winning videos do deserve it).

Is every contest going to be like this and the "Beauty and the Beast" contest?? Seems like the winners are mostly just chosen randomly :/

Okay, seems like I made it into the Top 20. Personally, I felt like my video wasn't really good enough for that, since there were quite a few entries much better than mine. Well, I participated out of curiosity and because I have never done something like that before (and I messed up so many things I wish I could've redone).

Hopefully we will get more events like these^^

Grats to the winners.

I as well agree with many others the selection seems very random. Not going to bother with effort or creativity if that's the case for future event contests.

The initial details weren't even clear until inquired upon and by that time I was already 50 files in with an idea in head and went with it.
that's just my feedback.

Edit2: I'm okay being outclassed, outskilled, or disqualified and not going on about amount of effort = win or loss against subjectivity to different tastes. However it's enraging when one of the top 5 is a plagiarism of someone else's work when the details clearly say "create your own"  and has no related story sense to BDO with the walls of text being displayed that can be highly misleading to anyone watching when details of "recognizable BDO content" are within the rules of the video contest. It only begs the question of how this was selected and whether or not if these contests are even given any f**ks or is that a representation of what's going on here?

Awesome! :D Congrats to everyone, there were some great ones out there! That would have been tough to judge. 

One of the winners should post what the black spirit figurine looks like once they get it.

You got it, Chief.

Mine was simple and kinda depressing so I knew I'd get nowhere, but it's hilarious to see RNG in a competition like this one.

Some of them are truly deserving of the top 20, but others.. not so much. hahaha!

Good work to all who tried tho. was still fun taking part.

I knew that something like this will happen! That's why I didn't put much effort in the video and just did simple, followed by the rules video. Waiting for my title and points. Thanks.

You entry was reviewed by the team and it was not one of the top 20 selected.  The videos were reviewed and voted on, which relies on personal taste.  I am sorry you did not win, but thank you for participating.

 

Thanks for the automated message bruuuh. Cause number 1 was fking in the same theme, mood as mine...I will never participate in any more competitions with these guys as judges. It's all 100% randomized. Even tho they prob picked the first 5...

I agree with a lot of these posts, When I was going through the thread originally, all I saw were short videos of people just riding around so I didn't put anywhere near as much effort into mine as I should've done. Some of the chosen winners really are questionable though, in my opinion at least. I do think the overall winner was chosen correctly, but some of the other top 20 weren't even close to some of the other entries I'd seen.

I understand why my video probably wasn't chosen though, as there wasn't much variety, but some of the other entries were definitely better than some of the top 20 here. Guess they were just overlooked, quite sad. :/

Congratulations to the winners!

I also hoped to get a place in the Top 20 with my Video and i'm a little bit disappointed that i dind't make it. 6-20 really feels a little bit random picked... but i don't want to complain about it, because everyones flavors are different. Maybe i will make it in the next big event. ^^

Congrats to the winners!

I strongly disagree with 2nd place though. That video is based on a template, so the majority of the work was not done by the video creator.

Edit: I have no idea why this screenshot is showing up in my post, I didn't upload anything to this post. Trying to edit the post and removing the screenshot doesn't work.
