AlamDV3 LIVE WEBCHAT
Thursdsay, 12th August
12:00 PST / 20:00 GMT / 15:00 EST


Thursday, 12th August is a date to note in your diaries, as it will play host to the first ever live webchat with the makers of AlamDV3. At 3pm EST (8pm UK time and 12 midday PST) the FXhome team will be ready and waiting in the FXhome chatrooms specifically to answer all your AlamDV3 questions.

We'll post up a reminder next week along with further instructions on how to join and ask your questions. The discussion will last for approximately one hour, so make sure you get there on time!

The whole team will be there and we'll do our best to answer all your questions, but it might make matters easier if you know who to address your question to:

schwar - Head programmer and designer. Schwar is responsible for the design of the interface, its visual appearance and the main coding of all the exciting features. AlamDV has been his baby from the beginning and this time he's pushed the envelope so far we can't even see it anymore.

Tim - G6 infrastructure programmer. Tim codes lots of the clever behind-the-scenes stuff that handles media support and the composite engine. He's also responsible for optimising much of the core features, speeding them up to top gear.

Malone - FXhome webgod. Malone is mainly responsible for FXhome, making the web side of CSB-Digital run as smooth as a hot knife through butter. If you've bought a product, visited the FXhome cinema or browsed through the forums, you've been playing in Malone's world. He's also known as something of an optimisation king, thanks to his uncanny mathematical prowess, which helps to make the G6 programs run as fast as possible.

Tarn - Main writer and filmmaking maestro. Tarn is the one that writes the manuals, quickstarts and tutorials for the programs. He also writes all the news reports and nearly every line of text at FXhome. As the resident filmmaker, he provides a direct insight when it comes to testing and streamlining the programs for practical use. If you have any comments about the written word at FXhome or in the documentation, he's the one to ask.

We look forward to talking to you all on the 12th! In the meantime, don't forget the FXhome chatrooms are always open for idle banter, support questions and general discussion. Click here for more information.

The difference is that we'll all be there and we hope all of you will be there as well. Rather than just having a random chat we hope we can get lots of interested people on the chat room to discuss the program and how things are going.

Should be a good time. Hopefully the users with questions they've been dying to ask will finally get some time to ask them, and those who don't normally hang out in chat can get to know the CSB team a little better. Can't wait!

Sweet... Finally some everlasting questions will be answered. I hope I can make it. It should be lots of fun.

Just a thought... Maybe Tarn should make a follow up post about what went on in the chat. Such as answers to important questions that were asked. This would of course be for any members that wouldn't be able to join at that time.

Well anyway hope to talk to you all then... Man I haven't been in the chat in a long time.

--Peace--

We'll do a transcript of the discussion, so people don't need to worry if they're at work/asleep/busy saving the world. However, we really hope to get a big turnout - the chatroom is always a really fun way of getting to know people, and it's something we'd really like to see used more.

Hopefully see you all there next week. wink

Make sure to post a minute of this chat, or save the log to be able to read it later. And please, make sure you answer the "when" question. The rest is just hot air wink

im pretty sure that they wont answer the "when" question. They don't want to flub it up again. wink

And i think they also might not answer it because some people just wont stop asking. unsure

Patience is a virtue.

Just remember that Programming is like sex, one mistake and you have to support for a lifetime. It might be a good idea if you let us take a look at your code wink

It would SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO suck if we all think, "Oh, someone else will be chatting, and will ask the everlasting 'when' question, and I can just read about it in the transcript!" and then not one of us ends up asking when ADV3 comes out. *ben3308 crosses fingers*
ben3308: "Please be this month! Please be this month! Please be this month! Please...."

If I can make it I'll see y'all there.

my stupid actor cancelled the filming today because of his own stupidity, so it turns out i can make it. I have one question that i was afraid I was the only one who would ask.
