Oh! And there is a secret little trick you can do in the code now. You can repeat a keyword by using the notation x.

For example you could do DOG x10 in the keyword box and MVGEN will pull TEN dog gifs in a row saving you time from typing >DOG ten times.

700,000 views on YOUTUBE: User Accounts Soon!

Oh yeah!700000

Feels good man. After a hiccup , youtube is soaring again. 700,000 Views on you videos that you elect to upload to youtube so we can promote you and your music around the world.

User Accounts are on the way! This will allow users to decide when and wear they upload their videos to our Youtube , and sshape the experience a bit with custom thummbnails, description box with links to their social media and whre to purchase the track , and most importantly taking the song down from YOUTUBE from our channel if you need to without asking us!

One road bunp we had was some users would upload videos to youtube, then flag them down! They would apologize and help us get the flag on the channel off, but it was time consuming on a galactic scale.

Let’s face it , user accounts will make the whole experience better for you and us. We are kick-ass stoked to bring them online soon!

400,000+ Views On Youtube and MVGEN Improvements!

Yeah! We reached YAM! Yet Another Milestone. 400,000+ Views on the MVGEN Youtube channel featuring great music and videos from artists from around the world. We Tipple our Fedoras to you!
400000
We are stoked and so should you be – that means the videos you make and if you opt-in to send it to YouTube will get tons of views – which is really part of our larger mission: To get your music out there and heard and seen by as big of an audience as you want. We love that the videos are getting better and better!

We also made a few changes around the place with more to come. Here is a list:

Search In The Archives:

example
Now you can search the archives for your own videos or for other incredible videos from other artists!

New Rendering Engine:

We rebuild the rendering engine and flushed the database of all the broken GIFS. The engine flags and removes all GIFS that would cause unpredictable renders some times. Not anymore! We also changed the process for splicing the GIFS and we are super pleased with the results. There also was a change in Quicktime that needed a new render formula. Old videos will be converted to the new MP4 cross platform version soon.

One New Effect! Bubble Warp!:

Pick this and it goes all weird and warped thanks to some advanced mathematics!
bubblewarp
Sorry for the delay on effects. I had some real world music videos that premiere in May coming out!

Also small changes like automatic naming convention for youtube/soundcloud/bandcamp, and general code improvements.

We got a huge TODO list I won’t burden you with here, but remember please consider a donation – we are trying to rock without ads for as long as possible. Your donations go toward server costs. Even a dollar or a little bitcoin means a lot! You can also consider buying a some MVGEN merchandise too!
