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!
