How many videos do you typically record per day? Do you ever have to go do a recording with Kim then rush into your office and do something with, say, Nilsey? Or is there a lot of time between recording sessions?
I tend to do them in bulk - so at least an hour recording per thing. I usually try and only do one session per day or force an hour break before I do any more, but there have been instances of two hours of Watch Dogs, followed by almost two hours of Garry’s Mod or similar.
Hey Hannah I love your the forest series so far and I've got some tips for you. 1. You shouldn't settle so close to the crash as that is the main area where the locals will first investigate 2. Use the tempory shelters as you travel so that you can save your game and keep moving 3. You will want to set up your main camp at a beach where there is no trees so they cannot sneak up on you 4. They don't like light, similar to mine craft so if you set up some campfires around you they will not attack
Noted, did a bit of research after the first two attempts anyway, next time I film (no ETA as Walking Dead etc due out), I’ll be going hard and fast! And saving a lot more.
How do you deal with male gamers making fun of you for being a female gamer because i deal with this a lot and it really bothers me
Ignore and report them if it’s really abusive.
To be honest, I rarely reveal I’m a girl because there’s no point to it - it shouldn’t have anything to do with my playing, and I know that it can potentially cause drama if there’s a troll or douchebag in the group - and that could potentially ruin the game (to be honest, playing most MMO games solo can result in meeting some ‘personalities’ anyway, regardless of what gender you’re rolling with).
Otherwise, get a good group of friends and stick around with them. Most communities can be pretty horrible if you go solo into them, but find friends through forums and such and it can make things a lot better.
How do you match the separate audio to your videos? :)
It’s easy - just do something like ‘3, 2, 1, GO’ and hit your record button on ‘GO’. If you use consoles, the console recording can sometimes take a while to start, so it’s best to vocally match it up with something you’re doing on screen instead - e.g. ‘I’m on the menu screen, going up, up, up, down, down, down’.
Hello Hannah! I just wanted to know (future use maybe), when you record videos, do you use a program that records audio and video at the same time? Or do you use 2 diff programs for each? Thanks! (Sorry if this has been asked before)
I use Audacity for my microphone, FRAPs or Bandicam captures ingame audio and video.
Hey Hannah not sure if you've answered this but with game capture devices do they affect the recorded gameplay i.e lag, frame drops or anything like that, i've been looking at some for the 360 as my PC i get like 30+ FPS on lowest settings on some games and i cannot afford a next gen console, hope i've worded this right adn you know what i mean, as i have no idea about this stuff and thought someone who does console games LP's you would be the best person to ask :D
There should be zero issues with console capture devices as they don’t run on the console like PC capture does. However, get an Elgato - Hauppauge had a good innings at the start, but we had a mountain of problems using them over the last few years, things like corrupted footage, out of sync audio and so forth.
I have recently been setting up a YouTube channel (art for the cover and stuff) but I have a couple questions. Would you consider it better to record your voice separately to the game video and audio and then overlay it in editing? Also content I'm planning includes thing such as The Elder Scrolls games, The sims and a few indie games to name a few (not all at once of course that would be a lot of work for me and any viewers). would you recommend other games? Sorry, I know you get asked a lot.
It’s always better to do live commentary, it captures reactions. However, don’t be afraid to go back and add in stuff (read this as talking about the game information, mechanics, NPCs or whatever) to bulk out moments of silence.
I wouldn’t use recommended games, play what you want to play - you’ll enjoy it more.
I am very disappointed by the Yogventures situation. I did not “donate”. I bought early access/Pre-Ordered it after the Kickstarter was well over. My reciept labels the purchase as “Yogventures Pre-Order”.
I am, however, hopeful in light of the effort to try to rectify things by the Yogscast.
Its a terrible situation- there’s no refund possibility. Winterkewl is bankrupt- they were the ones who received all the donations and pre-order cash. You can’t get blood from a stone. My cash is _gone_. To ask the Yogscast for a refund when they didn’t take the money or have a hand in the project isn’t fair or just.
Sorry to hear you’re disappointed, we’re all pretty knackered and disappointed ourselves about the whole thing - although I know that doesn’t begin to make up for the fact that Yogventures and your cash are no more.
I’m going to take this moment to post a general message for Yogventures backers, as well as address some of your worries:
Buying early access should still count as a pre-order and you should have received - or will receive in the next few days - a Steam code for TUG. This should include anyone that bought Yogventures, regardless of when. If it doesn’t turn up by Wednesday, let us know and I can find out what’s happening.
We’re also looking into providing equivalent (or better) physical and in-game rewards for Kickstarter people. Think how the Humble Bundle worked, with constant additions of in-game items and exclusives for other games, plus game keys - that’s what we can hopefully provide alongside TUG keys and physical items to make up for no Yogventures.
Physical rewards should have all been shipped, contact us if you haven’t had them. We have many of the art assets and such from Yogventures, so you may see a crossover there of some old rewards into TUG.
More information to follow as we sort these rewards out.
Contact email: email@example.com
Please bear in mind that we are getting a truckload of emails, so it may take around 48 hours to get you an answer, especially if we need to chase up missing keys or physical items.
Also bear in mind our admin guys do have weekends off so they can be with family and friends, so emails may go unanswered at that time.
If you are still waiting for an answer after a week, then hit me up and I’ll see what’s going on.
How are you so cute and lovely? plz anser asap or wil unsubscribe ok
True story: when I was a kid (5-7 years old ish), I used to hate being called cute and lovely by relatives or random people because I was a tomboy and TOMBOYS AREN’T CUTE OR LOVELY DAMMIT *shakes fist*
What happened to Broken Age? Do you know when they'll release the second episode?
Not a clue, but I probably won’t cover it. It wasn’t as good as expected, plus if it comes out in the remaining months of 2014 it’s going to be impossible to find a space in the schedule! Kim and/or Zoey
Hi Hannah, I'm just wondering how to go about ads on videos in terms of how much do we have to watch/ what do we have to do in order for you to get revenue? I ask because I heard another YouTuber saying that you don't get revenue from ads if people skip it after five seconds and I usually did skip the ads, thinking you guys were getting revenue, but, of course, you weren't. So, how do we deal with each type of ad for you to get money?
Lewis said it better than I did, but I’ll paraphrase:
Ad revenue gives us bugger all, if you want to support your favourite Youtuber, buy their merchandise. It goes to them without people like Maker and Google getting a cut, and you’d have to watch millions of videos to equal the cost of one t-shirt or hoodie.
Hey Hannah! Dropping a question hope it's not personal or anything but I seem to have taken a liking to a necklace you wear a lot. It's purple and beautiful and I was kind of wondering about it's origin. It's beautiful by the way! :)
If you mean the blue chalcedony necklace I have (assume it’s just coming off as purple in some light), Lewis bought it for me it for Christmas a few years back. :)
