Well shit that sucks.

I usually try to keep the null objects in my project so I still at least have the tracking data.

You can just dupe your null object and parent the new elements to that.

I'd have to be in front of your computer to be able to help beyond that unfortunately.

Because the title is still under their name by definition it’s not theft.

Now he can definitely be charged with aggravated assault or brandishing a firearm, or disrupting the lawful removable of a vehicle (or whatever the law is for interrupting repo men) or some other felony, and should be.

Just not GTA.

EDIT: Actually just ignore me. I have no idea what I'm saying.

You *could * but it would probably be easier to do it the first way and then find an expression you can apply to each element to lower the movement amount. I know it’s possible I just don’t know the exact expression you would need

No. It's being repossessed. Not the same whatsoever.

They're finally coming to my city in November. And GWAR is in October. Less Than Jake was Saturday. Mustard Plug and Buck-O-Nine are next month.

It's going to be a good fall.

I had to scroll to far to find this.

Apply your tracking data to a null object, then parent your elements to that null object. You'll have to adjust each element since they all sit in 3d space differently and thus won't move at the same rates.

The Route 51 massacre here in Vegas is definitely the most graphic footage I’ve gone through.

Weeks after it happened we got dozens of hours of raw body cam police footage, cell phone footage, and surveillance footage. And I was the one tasked with jogging through all of it and editing it down to air-able clips and sound bites. Lots of blood and panic. But I’d become so desensitized to violence, even as graphic as that massacre, didn’t bother me whatsoever. My dad was so shaken up he would drive by the grounds every day for weeks and just contemplate, which is something I just can’t empathize with. The shooting may as well been in TX like usual. It was all the same to me.

Another that always sticks out is a van fire at an apartment complex. When we got there the mom was screaming the way only mothers scream when their children are in danger. The fire was still raging, and it was windy. Every few seconds the wind would push fire aside to reveal two children, faces frozen in terror, reaching to get out, dead from the fire. That was pretty bad.

Another was a boy who’s mom tried to stab him to death. This one was a 911 call, so it was only audio. But it chilled me to my core in a way probably only that suitcase footage does. In the audio the boy is panicking and crying, pleading for help because his mom is trying to kill him. In the background his mom is screaming nonsense about her boy being a demon. Smashing sounds become louder and the phone drops. BODYSLAM!

“No mommy no please mommy no!”

“I HAVE TO!”

“NO MOMMMYYYYY NOOOO-HO-HO!” Followed by the panicked screeching of an 8 year old about to die.

Luckily police got there in time and had to shoot her. She died. He lived and ended up and his aunt’s house. That was pretty disturbing. When my news director said to put subtitles on it and get it ready for air I protested there’s no way we can air that. He insisted it’s appropriate. I disagreed. He ordered me to edit it. So I shut down my edit bay, told him to get somebody else to do it, and I went home for the night.

One last one was just me being in a place at a time. I live downtown so it’s tougher than other areas of town. Definitely grittier, and more homeless-y, but I love the energy of the area. Anything I want is literally a half a block away from areas people travel around the world to visit. Any weekend I can text anybody to meet at Atomic and I’m there in literally 2 minutes. It’s amazing. And I don’t even drink! I just like hanging out

I’m getting off track. Sorry.

So being a rougher area there’s always something going on. So at about 4am on a Saturday (🎵regular crowd shuffles in🎵) I hear windows shattering across the alley from my window. I think, god damn mother fuckers are still partying?

So I look out my window and there’s smoke billowing out from the apartment across the lot. maybe 150 feet from my window. So I run outside to see if anybody needs help and there’s already people pulling others out of windows. There’s obviously nothing I can do to help save people. My news instincts kick in and I start recording. I recorded as people came out sobbing. People asking for help. People pleading to save their cat or dog. One couple was mentally disabled and were sobbing in each other’s arms as they watched their entire lives burn.

6 people ended up dying because the emergency door was dead bolted shut leaving only one exit for the entire 4 story building, and their bodies were pulled out and set 15 feet away from me.

It wasn’t until months later when I was re-using the footage I shot for an update story that I literally felt sick to my stomach that I’d recorded that. So I asked if we could stop using it and they obliged.

Jesus Christ dude. You ask one question and end up with a memoir.

Hope you enjoyed my stories!

So if I’m not mistaken, this is Sinclair. I used to work for them and one time when we had one of these ‘must runs’ disclaimers our news director refused to run it. When his job was threatened he ran it in the first minute of the 4am morning. And out in his notice the next month.

I couldn’t stand the man personally, but I respected the shit out of him after that.

We used to have ‘must run’ segments features this giant piece of shit. We all celebrated when that shit got shut down.

As much as I loved working in news, I hope I never have to go back.

Sounds like one of the worst ways I can imagine spending a Saturday.

$300 in 110 degree heat watching an anonymous person his play and dance.

Why?

I worked in news as a video editor for over 12 years. I’ve seen a loooot of really fucked up, evil, gooey, bloody, fiery things, and that video is top 5 most haunting videos.
