    Alright, I'm going to be as honest as I can with all of you that are reading this thread.

    I have not touched the project files for the Flux "Movie" ever since Early January. Why is this exactly? Well, I guess I'll start with my insanely good procrastination skills.

    Every time I reminded myself to do the Flux Movie, I dreaded it. Constantly doing the same thing (keyframing images over faces of people and entire hours spent on moving multiple images from A to B) all the time felt like a complete waste of time, and that reminder on my bottom-left corner of the screen that only 6% of the "movie" was complete just continuously (and effectively) made me lose hope in this thing ever being completed. The only thing that was keeping me going at that point was you guys, and the fact that all of you were so excited to see it for yourselves was what kept me trying to get it done.

    To try and solve this problem, I made an announcement on here that I would be shortening the movie down to 30 minutes, but even that was still too much for me to try and get done. When I was making my move from Windows to Linux (don't ask why lol), I accidentally erased both my main SSD and my 1 TB Harddrive, which included the Flux Movie files.

    I was, however, lucky. Because @Death@Death asked me before I made the move to Linux if he could have a small little teaser of what I've done so far. I agreed and made a private YouTube Video with all of the things I have done so far, with him commenting on it a little bit.

    After using Linux for a full week, I eventually decided to switch back to Windows, which is what really got me pissed off at myself. I could've avoided those data erases, yet I was foolish enough to try and use Linux as my main OS.

    After this, I wasn't able to use the internet for about a day or two, as I was moving house, so working on the movie at the time was impossible. And even when we settled in, my room was now upstairs, whereas the router was downstairs, meaning I couldn't use my Ethernet Cable to access the internet through that method. And even if I was able to, I didn't have a desk, forcing me to set everything up on my floor. About a week later, I finally got a desk. And as a Christmas Present, I got my Wireless Adapter, along with gaming headphones (which I definitely needed, considering that before I was using my phone as a Mic when on the JB Servers). But after this, I just simply did not touch the downloaded movie footage I gave @Death@Death ever since.

    And whilst writing this, I even considered resigning again, as I thought back to my inactivity here. But I'm going to try and get back into administrating the servers again, and as for the Flux "Movie", I don't know what I'm going to do with it.

    Thanks for reading.

    Its like linux wasnt shit already :haha:

    I might help with the film creation cause i have alot of time to spare because my sickness doesnt allow me to do job / school, but i have no experience with video editing so someone would had to tell me what to do and what to install ( or let me watch alot of youtube tutorials)

    I realised how stupid I was to try and experiment with this, so I switched back to Windows lmao

    Sounds like a lovely movie, and with a shockingly handsome protagonist protecting the Flux servers from the evil hackers, sentry campers, and little kids who micspam. Who is this handsome savior? It definitely isn't me! (Yes it is ;) )
    You do realize that i'm just kidding, right? Lol.
