The way they have it set up is so that all members appear "offline" and I believe "as guests". I personally would find it more encouraging to know that there are in fact members online, maybe Shortfuse could take a look and fix it so it shows their names instead of "Guests", as I find it rather lonesome and I don't know who is online [I am nosy].

Moviestorm in this case would be the "game" used so I would say we were still eligible
As for movie credits, most films credit the companies that make the software, but aside from that, aren't we the foley, lighting providers, camera providers, wardrobe, etc etc wink.gif


What happens if it isn't a machinima style movie, and is a regular movie, would we still need the credit?

Good discussion question. I would guess that we still need to credit everyone for everything we use. For example, Phil Collins was probably paid a lot of money for his music for the Disney film but he is still credited for the song. That's not a terribly good example as he also sings the song... but I think this would follow. Maybe a better example would be the credits for film processing ie. 'Techicolor' or sound - DTS, Dolby Digital etc... at the end of a film?


Normally a written contract is made and signed by both parties, which normally have an agreement for credits to be given.

In a Music Video often you do not see "credits" or "watermarks" on them, those sometimes ruin the illusion, so this is why I am bringing this up, "credits" in a Music video doesn't look good, normally at the beginning and end of a music video briefly there is an overlay of information such as:

Song Name
Song Singer
Album
Copyright

It may not be exactely like that but it is close. I personally feel that since we are now paying to use the program we should not be required to say what we used to create this.

Take this as an example:

When you create a Machinima Movie, normally when and if there are credits, do you see this:

________Title Name__________

<List of Actors>
<Game used>
Adobe Photoshop CS4, Autodesk 3dsmax 2010, Adobe After Effects were used.

Normally you'd only see the first three lines, not what programs are used to edit it, even in the proffesional movies, all you see is Actors, Directors, Producers, Cameramen/women, Special Effects, etc, not what program was used to edit the video, or to make it, just the cast members.


In Topic: [Suggestion] Military Pack

My original suggestion is Modern, as I personally have had enough of WWII items, normally every where I turn I see something that regards WWII. What MS could do is make a few packs, make a Modern one, WWII one, and and others.
