Community Question

Hi Guys & Gals!

I wanted to let you all know that after a long hiatus I'm spinning up my Youtube channel again! I'm shifting over to my new alias: Botmatrix. From here on in the channel will be dedicated to this awesome community and will continue to be a place where I share my electronics and robotics side projects. The content will be mostly hardware related with a lot of EZ-Builder & EZ-Builder (mobile) interaction.

I have a number of Project Showcases in the queue that I'd like to share and a few tutorials I'd like to do (I still owe someone an RGB LED tutorial ;D ). I'm very open to requests and ideas for videos if you have any suggestions. Also, if you'd like to be added as a featured channel, please let me know! I've already added ez-robot and a few of our community members to the list.

The link to my channel is: Here

Please subscribe and comment if you're interested!

I'm working toward to getting a custom URL for the channel, A new logo design, and a few other changes. I'll update this thread once the changes start happening.

P.S. I won't be able to get this channel going again without your support and involvement. There are too many distractions out there for me. This community is where I belong and where I receive the most genuine satisfaction, and I really desire to be more involved.

Thank you @bhouston for being my 100th Subscriber!

I now have my own custom channel url:
https://www.youtube.com/c/Botmatrix

My channel is also searchable on YouTube now! That will make things much easier.

I agree with @Jeremie that it is a tri centered configuration but the covers make it visually appear as if it is off center. But if it could be pushed out a little flatter then it would be more J5 than Wall.E. But either way, I love it!

Interesting. I did a Google Image Search to confirm my thought, and it looks like a bunch of toys had it off center, but the actual one from the movie was more centered.

move the top idler farther back from the center and you will mimick the shape of wall-e

@Jeremie I found this tutorial for thumbnails very enlightening. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p4yRrVgvFrg I have to admit, I never knew how thumbnails got added to or created for videos on YouTube (I thought it was something only super cool YouTubers had access too, LOL).

This guys has all sorts of neat videos that shows how to use free things Paint, Paint.net, and Windows Movie Editor to edit and produce many video effects. And for what Windows Movie Editor can't do Microsoft Expressions Encoder 4 can, with overlays and it too is free.

For those that might want a logo but don't have access to someone who does graphic arts, I just used Fiveer.com to have a new J2R logo created for $5. I have not rolled it out yet, but I am super happy with it. Fiveer is a neat service to connect with artists. They even offer video intro and outro creations and all sorts of other services.
