I wanted to take the time here to thank all of the people who took the time to make all of the presets that are within the library. Also the ones who made the old AlamDV plugins that can be converted to stock footage now.

The presets seem to be coming out a lot lately (especially from Redhawksrymmer, Oeyvind and Axeman - do you realize that they share 200+ presets between them?) and it's obvious many of us will find them very useful.

Of course, I would never be able to use all of them for a variety of reasons, but the fact that preset creators don't get paid, and share your talents speak volumes of who you are. I for one lack the creativity and probably patience to do these things.

So once again, thanks to ALL of you (too many to name), and I look forward to seeing your creations in the future.

Hello Garrison! razz

Thank you very much! You don't know how much I appretiate that people like the presets... Myself I've spent some time making them so this is really encouraging..! Hehe, three more presets and I've done 100! lol

And to you fellow-presetmakers: thank you very much for your presets! Even if I make my own presets, I still find your presets usefull and I must say that I've probably used many of them as well..!

And to you that soon want to start making presets: start! It's really fun actually! You know, you get ratings and the number of downloads and imagine how fun it'd be if people used your presets for their movies..! And don't let rejections let you down, my first preset got rejected actually! razz

Thanx again Garrison! +1

Thanks Garrison. Always good to hear that our efforts are appreciated. And thank you likewise to all the other users out there that have contributed to the presets library. I'm continually impressed by the innovative and clever ideas that show up in the new presets. Keep 'em coming.

And I'd also like to join Oeyvind in encouraging more of you to give it a go. It is fun, and there is a certain satisfaction to watching movies in the cinema and seeing your effects in them. Everyone has a different approach, so you may come up with ideas that no one else has thought of; that is what makes the library of presets so versatile and cool. There are way more options for effects and grading than any one of us could come up with on our own. And like Oeyvind, i still get presets rejected from time to time. Don't let it stop you from trying.

Speaking of making your own presets, I was wondering what the awards (bronze, silver, and gold) are based on? I'm not complaining here, just genuinely wanting to know so that those of us who try (especially for the first time) know what kind of bar to strive for?

For instance, is it based on originality, complexity, ease of use, etc.

I'd guess that it's a good combination of all those elements that makes a good preset. razz Just try to make something that yourself would find very cool and perhaps something new that hasn't been done before..!
