Your source for transformation media.
This many people visited my huge site.
Founded Date: 9/23/99
What has been updated:
The site has been update. As I previously announced, this isn't a clips update. But with that update out of the way, I can finally resume uploading new video. And if all goes well, I should have something this week.
While this update has a lot of internal change that won't really affect user, but mostly how I update and manage the site, there are 2 features that are quite important.
First, I changed the video player to something more modern, more HTML5. It has a bigger viewing area, but most importantly, it has High Definition mode.
Since the new format, all clips that were downloadable had a preview, a low resolution streamable video. For the full resoltion, you had to download the AVI. This was mostly due because AVI were the main format I was using and NOT A SINGLE online brower would play AVI. But with the arrival if HD and True HD, I've changed to MP4 and discarted AVI. This mean that all file natively in MP4 will be playable in HD.
Sadly, older AVI still won't play. However, with each update, I'll convert older files to MP4 and upload them, so that the full resolution will be available to playback. I cannot, however, blindly reencode everything. Some older files would simply look blocky with a double compression. Those will have to be remade.
So, if a clip has both it's preview an HD file available, you will see an HD button on the player. Just press it to play the origina file on the browser.
Secondly, the search engine is up. While all clips were already browsable by category or media origins, you couldn't do free text search. Now you can.
The search feature:
I've also changed how ads are displaying... Thanks to some furry idiots, who ignored the site guideline and posted porn pictures as their avatar, the site has been blacklisted by Google because I didn't catch their avatar in time. Thanks to them, the site is no longer on adsense and other Google services. Now, I'm notified each time someone change their avatar or ego portrait, to avoid having porn picture visible in public...
So, time for to get back on the train, resume update, and contact the person who asked what they can do to help. Until next time and help and support will always be welcome.
The end of the year is approaching, and it's time to post an update on the current status of the site.
The last update is dated from last March and since then, nothing.
Two projects were on the table:
However, something happened in May: a member of my family was diagnosed with cancer. A month later, they finally found a buyer for their house.
This lead to a series of cancellations that affected the site.
Normally, I take my vacation time away from the Internet and distraction (going fishing, etc) to work on an update. This got cancelled, thus the free time I usually took for the site was gone.
With my relative sick and needing to move his belonging to the new place, I took days off from works to help. You may not know, but moving from one farm to another imply a LOT of stuff to carry over. And both aren't next door to each other.
And my job doesn't really allow to take days off. Therefore, the days taken were simply retaken as overtime later on, which kind of remove the free time I would have spent working on the site.
Hunting was also cancelled, which was another of such time away from distraction.
This lasted until last week.
Now, things are settling back in place. My relative had had his surgery. They are at their new place. My accumulated work has been cleared at the office. I've cleared the 6000 accumulated deviations on DeviantArt. I can resume where I left.
First thing first, I will finish the code update. Search and streaming has been on hold for too long. And a certain name not longer associated with the site has to be removed.
Second, nearly a year is way too long between updates. I know I don't have the luxury of having all my days work-free and not worrying about a job, but that's not excuse. Especially with the last donation (of the very few I receive) I just received (which I'm very grateful, thank you). So for 2015, I'll try, no, need, to get more updates rolling.
But I may repeat myself, help would be welcome. I'm all alone on the site. Stonegate is gone. Feedback is non-existent. I only got feedback from 1 or 2 persons. References are few, I only 3 have been referring me useful content to look for. And no, messages like "Please update the site with 15 angry bird TF clips" are not helpful. I need the name of the show, movies, game. I need which episode. I need something to work with. Especially since I don't pirate all my clips, and looking at every single episode of a series really can be time consuming.
I could also use help in labelling clips. I need at least one person to identify clips, which doesn't have an existing character, which feature a male or female character. I can do fuzzy search to put that flag, based on generic word like man, woman, girl, etc., but that will leave room to erroneous entries, and as a perfectionist, I hate that kind of mistake.
So, if you can help and want to help, please contact me. I would like to make a contributor / supporter page and be able to put some name on it.
Sorry again for the bad 2014 years of update. Lets wish for a better 2015!
And sorry to any email I may have not replied for. Some may get lost in all the mayhem, and if you don't mind for late reply, always feel free to remind me and send your message again (as long it's not for more Angry Bird clip).
5 months since the last update. Been a long rush since last time, but it's finally there. Before I would like to mention something that may interest the transformation fans.
Cheasy Dino has been organizing podcast, named 'Changing Time' with various members of the transformation community, including people like Catmonk Shiro, RaptonX and me. I recommend you have a look, or an hearing.
His podcasts are linked on his Fur Affinity gallery (only on FA sadly for the moment) at this url:
My episode is number 3 if you are interested. And if you share my interest, episode 1 to 6 should be of interest. Episode 7, in my taste, could be skipped because I don't feel the main speaker has anything to do with Transformation...
Which also bring me to clarify something. During the making of my episode, it has been brought in that some people were complaining because my video were of low resolution.
To explain how the site work, as I mentioned in the past, the video you see when you access a clip is a PREVIEW video, 320x240 in resolution maximum.
The resolution of the actual file is actually displayed in the information section bellow. Most recent clips are in HD (1280x720) while the not so recent are normally in full SD, so 640x480. Only the very old tapes from Stonegate are still at 320x240 until I can get my claws on a better copy.
So, where are those file? If you're logged, the link to download those is below the video itself. The one named "Download the full clip". If you're not logged in, you'll see a message to log in in order to download the file.
In the future, I will add an option to switch between the low resolution and SD/HD content when available. Also, quota has been disabled for year. There's no limit to download. All that I ask is that you don't repost the video on other video sites such as You Tube. Like this guy who keep reposting on You Tube.. Shame on him!
On another subject, can anyone recommend me a good Transformation animation artists? I've been seeing a few headshot transformation avatar, and I would be interested in a smooth one, medium resolution, to use as an opening sequence to the clips. Kind of like what GeltyDrake did with his 'Grow with Gelty' opening.
If anyone is interested or know someone who would fit the profile, I would be interested in commissioning such a head / upper body dragon transformation.
And now, back to this update. The summary this time are:
Until next update!
Long time no see.
It has been quite some time since the last update. Nearly 6 exact months. I initially had planned to work on the update during summer, but something out of my control happened.
Those who follow me on DeviantArt probably already know about it, but last summer, forest fires burned out our hunting hunting lodges.
My father lost his hunting cabin, his area was completely burned down. We both lost the lodge that was worked on. Our hunting partner also lost his lodge. They all had storage container, the one used for transportation, and all 3 burned down.
We also lost our boat, a huge 'freighter' canoe required to safely navigate on reservoir.
This kind of changed my plan for the rest of the summer, and changed the priority of certain tasks.
For the summary of this update:
What is in the update?
Until next update!
