Tankers!

 

To celebrate all of the newcomers joining in on the Xbox One and even 360, Timmy has been very busy making his do's and don'ts tutorials. He needs your help.

For this contest, we would like to spotlight the Xbox One's DV-R capabilities to help Timmy out. We would like for you to make your own version of a Timmy's Do's and Don'ts video. You can choose any topic you'd like. Please keep it clean.

 

Here is a link to a quick guide for uploading your Xbox One DVR videos to YouTube. If you guys need help in recording videos, there is also a tutorial there as well. If you have any questions otherwise, I am pretty sure I can help you out. If you are using a 360, you can use your normal recording procedure.

Here is a Timmy's Do's and Don'ts video for reference.

Sorry it took a bit to get this one up and running. I wanted to find the best tutorial I could to help you all out. :)

Interesting...I think you can use the Kinect to do voiceovers, right?

That is the worst idea I have ever heard in my life, Tom.

 

Guess I will just watch this competition. Any other super cool 360 with no video recording tools users out there?

 

I do look forward to the results though. But my excitement has dwindled from "what could it be" to, well, Michael Bolton said it best.

I feel the same way. If one of us hasn't invested over 100$ in either a good capture card or a Xbox One we have no way to participate. My worst nightmare of Xbox One players having an advantage or extra perks has come true only a day after release. After what Forza did i saw this coming from the day Xbox One was announced. :amazed::(:angry::arta:

Yes you can. I've done it a few times myself.

I can understand how this one won't appeal to everyone. Also keep in mind that other contests are coming. Also, this isn't going to be a heavily used contest. I don't want people to feel excluded. We just wanted to do something that would make use of the Xbox One's capabilities for release. There will be more writing, art, and crafting contests as we go along.

Its cool. You can just give me a "You are just awesome" award for this competition. I understand the reasoning behind it though.

 

I am still waiting for a math/geography/science contest. Then everyone will see my true skills!

Funny enough, I am planning a Math contest. Something easy but it will require some research. :)

I had a WOT Geography contest, but the last 2 people I suggested it to left WG within a week of my suggestion, so I am not going to be doing that again!

Can we suggest contest ideas and possibly have them made into a contest?

You all can submit ideas. I have no problem with that. Do it in a PM though so I can keep track. I can't promise that the ideas will go through but I do like ideas.

You can do a VO if you would like. It won't count for or against you either way. It would help get your point across a little bit more. Make sure to at least title it so we know what you are talking about.

here's mine.  Sorry about the horrid quality, it was rendered online because i don't have editing software. I just threw it together kind of quickly. Also put it on 1.5-2.0X speed to make it more enjoyable ;)

Could we keep it on xbox if thats ok and maybe have another competition for an animation, I really wanted to learn animation and forked out a ton of cash for a degree who the didn't even teach me how to animate, I'm just more confident in recorded game video, just saying that it'd unfair for someone with good animation talent to blow everyone out of the water when the rest wouldn't even be able to try.

 

I'm not being picky or pushy or nasty just saying :)
