How to make a cj tutorial.

You'll need :

  • a ball
  • a video camera
  • a computer
  • some editing software

Learn the move, perfect it. Record it on the camera. When recording think about having a plain background and try not to move around too much. Also make sure you have enough light in your video. Nothing will ruin a good video quicker than not enough light.


[edit] youtube

Record a tutorial video and upload it to youtube. Mot has created a youtube account just for cj.org tutorials if you do not want to clutter up your own account, or if you don't have one yet. Get in contact with me if you want the details of that account. user:mot

[edit] gifs

These days it's probably better to use youtube or another hosting service for your videos, but if you still want to make an animated gif:

Your aiming for the file to be loop able so keeping your feet planted in the same place will pretty much be a safe bet. Suck the footage on the computer and into your editing software. Cut it down to just the raw move. That will most probably just be a second or two long. We'll be using the .gif file for the tutorial as they are nice and small and loop automatically (mostly). Do not fade in or out at the beginning or end of the video. Export the video as a .gif file. 15 frames a second and use a resolution of about 200x200 and try and keep the colours down to a minimum (to save on server space and bandwidth).

If you have problems with exporting as a gif format, just export it as whatever file you can. Avi, mov, wmv or whatever and then send it to one of the cj.org team. We can convert it to gif later.

Once it ready send it to me, User:Mot or get on the forum and upload it there.
