This is awesome. Unfortunately, I no longer have my glowing AlamDV keyring, but I do still have the little metal clasp that actually held it to my keys, and I use it to this very day to hold keys. smile

You guys used to have key chains!? eek I want one. biggrin
Whatever you guys are working on... I'm sure it'll be great... it better be for all the wait and secrecy surrounding the alleged 2011 is the year hype. Just saying... I've been patiently waiting since October 29 2010 for my first submission to the cinema to go through but it's still pending. It's cool... I know how to wait. biggrin

Thanks guys, this was a fun video to put together. smile Cherry-picking stuff from the last 10 years was tricky, but hopefully I got most of the essentials in there. razz

I'm surprised none of the old-timers have commented on the FIRST EVER reveal of what CSB stood for. wink

Wasn't sure that was real! smile So it was Costume-Skunk-Beach, then?

Ha, I was always partial to Corrugated-Sausage-Box.

Definitely my favorite installment in the recent set of FXhome-produced videos. Nice job, Tarn m'boy.

There are some other, pretty major easter eggs in there that nobody's spotted yet. smile

It's worth keeping an eye on our various channels (Twitter, Facebook, the forum here etc) as who knows what you might find out...

Hm, that's interesting. Maybe you are working on some magic software which rips out and trashes graphic cards or maybe (which I'd like a lot better) makes use of the GPU(s) wink

Another thing which just came to my mind: The FXhome Browser? (With even more aperture blades than Google Chrome ...)

Nobody's spotted, or nobody's posted? Bit of a difference there. wink

Just watched the video! Awesome to have been there since (almost) the beginning. I remember when "The Test" was the absolute most mind blowing thing I had ever seen on the internet. Incredible.

Thanks for the shout-out at 02:26! I doubt it was intentional, but I appreciate the thought... or lack thereof. cool

I checked out the QR codes just now with my phone. Only just had a chance to watch the video. Talking about the possibility of 3D in a new product. One of the qr codes does hint to this. I won't reveal what the QR codes say, don't want to spoil it for anyone. Unless anyone wants me to say.

Down load the video off YouTube and then put it into FXHome software. Then you will be able to search frame by frame. Thats the only way I was able to find all the QR codes.
