Risk of Rain 2 (intro and outro)

It was immediately clear to me that something was missing in my new career as a professional streamer. And, no – I know what you’re thinking – it wasn’t a dedicated following full of enchanted viewers. Chasing viewers is for people who don’t already have them, and I have a well-deserved zero, thank you very much.

It wasn’t skill.

No, what I was missing was something to take the edge off the jarring starts and stops that wrapped each stream – and I knew just what to do.

The first step was to figure out how on Earth to use After Effects. Whether I succeeded at that remains hotly debated, but I did manage to cobble together an intro video.

Realizing only then that future streams would feel unacceptably lopsided, I panicked and threw together a quick closing video as well.

Please enjoy with my blessing.

I removed the project wonderful advertisement from Bradicon. Shaun once called it a failed experiment, and he was right.

Oh, and I decided averaging groups-of-days on that graph was misleading. Why would I average them? That doesn’t make sense.

An image splits; time lacks distinctinction

A man named Shaun E. Kiernan asks if I know of any programs purposed toward splitting PNG files. Barring image editors, I do not.

Saying no to people is not something I do well. I offer to make him one. Development time should be brief.

I do so. It is so.

I rebel against the common over-use of text fields. I do not worry about certain conditions. If an image cannot be evenly divided, it will try for pixel fractions. This is an obvious mistake, but the fault is theirs.

I implement tarring, for increased ease-of-use. I commandeer and massage code from Bradicon. It is done in under an hour.

He laments its interface, though it seems functional. He claims it suits his need.

I spend some more time on the user interface. This is as far as I see it going.

It is a program that splits an image, and split images is what it does.
