More GIF quality variations.

This is a fun GIF I made while showing my buddy @steelparade all the fun I’m having with Gifs. This was taken a few weeks ago while we were getting ready to rehearse with the big band at Santa Ana College here in California.

I know the best places to get donuts. It’s a special thing over here. Not really something I care to discuss in this blog, but if you have any specific questions about donuts, let me know.

Thanks for not being mad if you got a little scared.
I’ll search for some cute Halloween pictures before this October is over.

Sugar is scary too.

My review and video footage of our big band performance at Santa Ana College. 10102017

I played every song except one. There were multiple bass players scheduled. One bass player student was late and didn’t work on his song. He couldn’t even get through the first 16 measures. He was late, flustered and unprepared. The corner we bass players were pushed into was too small so it was probably easy for the director to simply remove him from the performance.

The entire area was too small for a big band of almost 20 people.

The second bass player had a standup bass with a new pickup. It is essential to know how to balance the sensitivity and . Gain or trim should be considered as a sensitivity knob to balance your finger feel along with the volume between the pickup and the amp. We were in a very small location and the amp was pointed directly at the bass pickup. Proper technique is essential for an upright to be herd. I turned the amp away, rode the volume knobs and still got nothing. I realized later there was also an issue with the cable we were using and the amp. Both had reputations for intermittent functionality. There was too much feedback, no presence and eventually I was asked to play every song.

I’m glad the other bass players were removed. It wasn’t sounding good. The bass students learned very valuable lessons that day. I have conveyed only sincerity, authenticity, and effort. Is it the new generation thing? Too much, distractions? Have we forgotten that some things must still be earned?

I am proud of our big band director. I know that if I were performing parts improperly, I would also be removed. Or the difficult parts would be removed/altered.

Big Band! If it’s going down, I hope it goes down kicking and screaming.

Cheers to foosball and big band and all the other dying art forms!

Most importantly, this is what I ate afterwards:

New music video coming soon! “Practice Mindfulness” off of Tetrahedroseph’s Presidential Sampler

I’m finally done making the music video for Practice Mindfulness, the third song off of Tetrahedroseph’s Presidential Sampler. Click this link to hear just the song.

https://tetrahedroseph.bandcamp.com/track/practice-mindfulness

Next step is to sit on it overnight one more time, upload to YouTube/DTube, and add links/annotations in the space I left at the end. You’ll see…

For now, trip out on the video I made for the first part of this little story. It’s grumpy. It has profanity.

Empathic Sarcasm and Bitterness Rodeo. (This one will have explicit lyrics)

The internet made me do it.

Many things inspired Empathic Sarcasm and Bitterness Rodeo. Lets just say it’s an expression of protest in the first part of a three-part story. We were all in someway maybe inspired by the political events of 2016.

Practice Mindfulness will be the final part of this little story. An attempt at a positive ending, full of reminders that I hope contribute to our health and comfort.

This video contains an instrumental version of Practice Mindfulness: https://youtu.be/K4AW2Wqsg_w

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the videos. Look forward to the third and final part of the story.

My experience with the GIF Maker gif export qualities. With 3 Gif Examples 🎃

This post features the 3 different types of GIF export qualities available in Gif Maker.

Have you tried GIF Maker yet? They have a free version with limited functionality that puts a Gif Maker watermark on your exported video or Gif. It’s free, what do you expect? Just use iMovie to crop it out like I do. 🎃

+ High:

The free version allows you to change the Gif speeds and add text with two different font variations for free. Even though I mostly make GIF-like videos, I still use Gif Maker’s text function because it’s animated in a fun way.

+ Medium:

The free version of GIF maker has a speed adjustment function that I still use before I bring it into iMovie. It’s cool to use the speed adjustment, but know that after the Gif is exported, it might be a little faster.

+ Low:

Oh I wait, if you use iMovie to crop out the watermark, it becomes a video. imovie does not export as GIF format. It’s possible to put the movie back into GIF Maker, But it’s going to get the GIF Maker watermark again.

It’s probably best to give them the love. Like I said it’s free, what do we expect? At least let them have their free advertising I guess.

I didn’t comment on the video quality. I assume the highest quality will look the worst on WordPress when I get to my desktop computer. That’s usually how it works. The preview here on the WordPress iPhone app is inaccurate.

Please feel free to share your experience with this blog post. I’m very curious to hear how these three GIF appear for you.

>Please comment and tell me how my Gif fits on your screen! 🙏🎃🙏

The guy who makes GIF-Like videos actually makes a GIF: Yellow Hibiscus

Hey look I actually made a GIF! I’m usually the guy who makes GIF-Like videos.

It’s an experiment to see if I can actually export and see a GIF looping all by itself on my Steemit.

I’m not quite sure how I’m going to make a GIF in my normal style. iMovie is typically my last export. After that I upload and consider it done. If I continue using GIF Maker, I will be forced to have the GIF maker watermark at the bottom of all my Gifs. I’ve got some homework to do.

The following questions come to mind:
* Can I just buy the full version of GIF Maker and remove the watermark? ( answer is yes but I’m going to continue)
* Can I just buy an app in the Apple Store that will convert movies into GIF format?
* Can I just continue making GIF like videos as the guy that makes GIF like videos?

The answer to all these questions, is probably yes. I’m going to do a little homework. Gif homework while I cat-sit my meow friend Lily. I probably have a GIF of Lily Cat, but she’s kind of shy. It would take some convincing. 😜

Thanks for your support. Look for Tetrahedroseph on Steemit.com as @steemseph

That GIF-Like Video Guy: Dizzy Down Stairs in LA Fashion District

It’s me again, that guy who makes GIF-Like videos. This one is probably the least like a traditional GIF I think I have ever made.

https://youtu.be/WadE4QlRato

Some people have strong opinions about what GIFs should be. That’s probably necessary for creating health definitions. I don’t mind being the guy that stretches the definition. I’m a little self serving, but I’m having fun.

This post has two similar looking videos, because the first is the short version. This next one is the long version. It features more of Tetrahedroseph’s music.

Malibu Drums and Bass GIF from that guy who makes GIF-Like videos. 1 of 2 09302017

Remember the performance I talked about in Malibu… the one that didn’t have cellular or Wi-Fi signal?: https://steemit.com/malibu/@steemseph/no-broadcast-signal-for-our-malibu-performance-but-they-have-gifs-asap

Anyway, it’s OK if you don’t remember just click on that link above. Or if you don’t care, take a look at the actual GIF-Like video that I’m referring to now. 🎃

I’m really starting to like Steemit more than WordPress. Right now the only thing WordPress has over Steemit is the formatting. I like to write my posts in WordPress and then copy and paste the code into Steemit to transfer my formatting. This will not last though. WordPress has a data limit unless you pay. Lol!!! pay!?! They don’t even take Bitcoin. I will just need to learn to use Markdown Styleing as I compose posts. Doesn’t everyone else? 🎃

Thanks for all your support.

Look forward to another GIF like video from the same Malibu California performance.
