Posted:Might as well put this up as there's a few CJ'ers on here...



Right Clicks and "Save Target As..."



Just me playing with CJ whilst trying to glide, wave etc.



Critique and comments please smile



Things I already know:-

~ It's too long (and big) and too samey

~ Some of the glides are poo

~ A lot of the CJ is very sketchy

Posted:Excellent,



I love what your doing with the liquid. One of these days i'll get off my ass and learn some cj, I love it.



This is a nice clear vid for me to sit, watch and learn from.



I cant dance if my country depended on it though. Did you post this over on reflective? Hows the response from al the poppers and gliders?

Posted:Not put it on reflective yet - will do though. It's just up on contactjuggling.org (With new spangly forum! biggrin) and here.

I know my waves and glides are sketchy, and I know how to improve them - so will hold back on Reflective until version 2 is ready smile Give them something to think about...

I second that mate, hours go by filming, then further days go by editing, then you realise just how long youve been looking at a screen and pushing buttons eek

But hey, when you get a nice little vid from it it makes it all worth while biggrin

Top vid Durbs - you really have been practicing shakin that ass biggrin

Posted:Nice vid Durbs. Wish I had time to learn that stuff cuz its totally me... Anyway, I thought it was great and the only thing Id say needs some work are some of your isolations that you glide to or away from where the ball moves too much.



BTW, you got a mirror there or were you just looking at the camera? Id suspect youd be even more wicked with a mirror if not smile
