What a freak of nature Jules is! He wouldn't have raced much in the last 12 months and pulls out a 1st at the nationals

Well done to the other winners too.

Congratulations to all the winners and finalists, this was a huge event and the first of such magnitude for the 1/5th off road boys in Australia.

I witnessed and was involved in some fantastic racing on a challenging track!
The track changed over the 4 days and presented more challenges as time went on.

Thank you to QORLS and your committee for hosting, I/we appreciate the amount of work put on the get it over the line.
A big thanks to all the members I met behind the scenes, your all more than welcome to come and race in Sydney anytime as we discussed.

A lot of people will have learnt a lot over the 4 days of competition including myself, I look forward to November 2013 when we can all meet again in Sydney for the next instalment.

Thank you to Brad Davis from AARCMCC for his role as race director, the event ran very smoothly and there was plenty of time scheduled between races for track watering etc.
The Slyfox program didn't miss a best and having Troy commentate the race when your driving is an experience in itself.

Cheers

I went along for a few hours on Saturday as a spectator & really enjoyed it. I've never been to a race meet before but it looked like a heap of fun.
Just wish I had a completed car to race.
Great job.

Next year Brad...get your gear together : )

Well what a great 4 days of racing, a Huge Thank You to everyone, Sponsors, Hosts and Competitors, Marshals, Officials and Spectators.

It was good to see everyone out having fun and working together to make this the first in what will hopefully become an Ongoing event around the country for many years to come.

Once again I got to meet a lot more of the large scale community from around the country, putting names to faces and catching up with Interstate Friends, What a great bunch of people.

I already have my seat booked for 2013....who's coming?

I had a great weekend. Many a laugh was had. Meet a lot of people and put a face to the user name. Thanks to QORLS for putting the event on. Brad for running the event very smoothly. Deano and Callan for all there hard work with the rule books and helping in this sport of ours. Callan from KING RC again for all his help by giving me pointers on how to set up the car and with parts like the powerhouse G4z engine. Brad for helping Callan rebuild my engine after I had a little dust problem. And the Rok from Rok Rc for suppying a couple of servos after I fried mine.

2012 Largescale Offroad Nationals was a great starting point for the future of this great sport.

Brad for helping Callan rebuild my engine after I had a little dust problem. .

all part of the G4Z after sales support mate :thumb:
you were not the only one to get caught with the dust

i think i rebuilt 4 engines over the weekend

but worth it to keep the G4z boys out on the track and having fun

you cant beat that for product support

Damn 4 engines?? I guess I was lucky then only damage was a steering servo in the final. Just washed the car though and the surface of the track has really taken its toll. **** just keeps coming out lol

Looking at the results DPS and Allanach racing have done very well. “Simple is best!”

I must say 4wd classes have come a long way, look at the closes racing and depth of quality drivers. The 4wd winners had to really fight for their spots.

I have to mention David was dead last at the start. The displayment of his driving to get to second was defiantly the high light of the Championships.I must say my Team Driver Tony had a tire change during the race and still came third.
In my opinion any of the top three drivers deserved to win.
Darren - with all the bad luck you have had you deserve to be Aussie Champion!

Julian - I think you shocked some of NSW team members. You have not raced for 13 months.
YOU CAME - YOU KICKED BUTT – AND NEVER TO BE SEEN AGAIN

Matt – steady wins the race -you won the winter series and now an Aussie Champion –well done!

Well done to all the Champions in all classes!

mate, the guys who got video footage of the event, weren't apart of out club before the Australian Championships. They came out as they were new to the filmiong industry and it would be there first big thing. They want to send an edited copy of the filming to Brisbane Digital Channel '31', and to make a 1hr long DVD to be sold to earn some extra cash, most likely to pay off the video filming equipment and the cost of the DVD's and cases. As if they are going to just give it away? Thats like you going to work and not getting payed for it? Have a think about it hey?

to me and this is just my opinion it was a qorls/ aarcmcc event ...there should of been a qorls memeber taking vidoes to put up on the forum's so we can boost interest in larescale's and also aarcmcc events /and largescale clubs.

even some teaser vids would of been nice , just to show case the event..

if i,m still in large scale when we hold the next national event in sydney..i 'll be making sure i get vids up of all 4 days events and put them up for all to enjoy for free.

it would of been nice for vids to be up to boost interest for all clubs and largescaler's

I agree There should be a few teasers. The video should be good but. I would of thought there would be a lot more footage out there from people phones. But then again we were busy all week running our cars.
If you have a look on the QORLS forum Ambro there are a lot of still photos that les took.

Hi guys, my name is Steve, i am one of the guys who you may have seen filming this event, now my first name may be Steve, but please keep in mind, my last name is NOT “Spielberg”, we are only amateur film makers and don’t pretend to be anything else !


We discovered 1/5th scale by accident,( and have since bought a Losi 5T ) and despite our years of playing with RC cars, never realised 1/5th was thriving, and only a stone throw away at Belmont, we believe many people would be interested in this side of RC , so Shane and myself decided we should try and share this with the public, raise awareness of the sport, the club and its members .


We approached QORLS with a brief , this brief explained how our aim would be to get footage aired on FREE to air Local TV ,as this would ultimately be the best way to boost new interest in the sport, and that to do this, footage needs to be aimed at the general public, not the people already involved, so it must therefore be well presented, interesting, informative, and explain 1/5th RC to everyday people that have never seen or heard of the sport ,and so “cannot” be just cars going around the track the whole time !


TV awareness is our main goal, and has been from the start, a DVD was always a secondary consideration, but as awareness grew, it became apparent to us, a DVD with added footage aimed more toward the people already involved in the sport, is more and more essential , both Shane and myself both have real jobs, families and lives, so two beginners undertaking 2 projects at once, is demanding to say the least.


This entire project has been funded by ourselves, not one person we asked has contributed a cent, with all the preparation , legal hurdles, plus filming, it has already consumed more hours than i can count, then the hard work begins, i am currently editing the footage, from 2 cameras,(plus gopro) there is about 16 hours of it to go through, on average i spend around 6 to 10 hours a night editing, yes i am slow , i have not done it before, and i am far from any sort of IT nerd, and with no funding, we simply can’t afford to pay a professional editor ,so we have little choice, i feel a bit like a zombie , i don’t see my family or do anything else other than this project and my day job, its now 4 am, i spend all my time on this project, if it sucks, then i really do suck, because it 100% has my all, i only have time to write this post ,because the editing PC is rendering footage, so i just have to wait.


We did not have, or request any sort of sole rights to filming this event, so it was 100% open to anyone else to film whatever footage they please, we concentrated on what was required to fulfil a TV broadcast, we are only two learners, so can only do and cover so much, I apologise if things and progress seems slow, but please be assured, it is not due to lack of effort !


If all goes to plan , our primary footage will get aired on TV , so everyone can watch our hard work all for FREE !, sure the DVD will cost money, but please do not be naive and assume this is some sort of profit making project, just in case anyone thought money was behind this project, even if we sell 1000+ copies of the DVD, we won’t near making profit from what gearing up for filming this event has cost us , and that’s with us both working for free , my plan is that the DVD should contain all the TV footage for those interstate or those that may not see it if it gets aired, plus heaps more racing, plus extra footage, extended/extra interviews, out takes , and whatever else i can fit in to make it good value.



Many people have helped with this project, most from the QORLS club, it could not have come this far without all their help, like or hate the end result, please rest assured ,we will have honestly done the very best we could possibly do , so a big thank you to those that have contributed (you know who you are) there is way too many for me to thank here, very sorry for the long post, but hope ive answered a few questions, if you do have more, feel free to PM me here, or ask Kris from QORLS club for my email address or ph number :)


cheers

Steve

Thanks guys,

The TV footage needs to be finished first, (as it will also be at the start of the DVD), as soon as i feel i have fulfilled the “requirements” as indicated to me by the Broadcaster, we will present the footage to the local TV network for inspection, depending on their response, if they do or don't like it, or if they suggest we need to edit things further for whatever reason, i will then, for the first time, get some sort of idea if we may achieve our goal.

Once i know the TV side of the footage is completed, and rest assured, as soon as i have any news with regard to the TV broadcast, (good or bad), i will be spreading the word like a rash !







I shall then continue to add to the footage to make the DVD, i plan to add more racing and heaps of extra things, and the layout won’t have to be quite so refined to keep the audience interested, only because the DVD will be more aimed at people already involved.


I hope it should take less time to finish the DVD footage, but it will still be a big job, then of course i have to design the artwork, produce a DVD case/disk, organise printing ,mass burning etc, it all cost $$ and is very time consuming, and on its own is a large project for first timers. :p

Thanks Dean, i am looking forward to it all being finished too, plus, i have a “brand new “ Losi 5-T & 4PKS sitting in front of me, and have not had time to even start the engine once, let alone drive the dam thing, im reminded of this when i edit , watching footage of you guys driving your cars around !

Seriously though...slip out to Belmont tomorrow, slap on a hat and some sunscreen, and catch a lazy day watching the Enduro that is being run. You are sure to see some smiling faces that were there for the Nationals...I will be under a tree somewhere : )

Anyone else in the area tomorrow, come for a look....suposed to be a 2 hour Enduro, should be a good one, I believe there may even be a couple of Losi's about

Ok guys, bit of a update, i expect the "TV version" of the footage to be finished and ready for submission by the end of this week.

I have had to swap editing software to get the end product exactly how i wanted it, this of course caused even more headache, but has been well worth it when i look at what ive now been able to accomplish.:cool:

Ive also got a pretty good headstart on the DVD version, and so it should not take anywhere near as long to get it all finished, at the moment, we are thinking we would like to try and include "all" the finals if we can, as well as the extra stuff, so its starting to look like a twin DVD set may be needed to fit it all in ! :p

Ok everyone ,after very much work (more than anyone could ever imagine in fact)the 27min Tv version is pretty much all done, we will talk with 31 Digital this week about submitting it to them.

Ive taken snips out of the final TV footage, and cut a 6 min preview for everyone to get a idea of what ive been working on, i hope you enjoy, and feel free to comment (even if bad) please remember we are learners and have "never" done this sort of filming/editing before http://www.danielspitstop.com.au/components/com_kunena/template/default/images/emoticons/smile.png

Good idea, is there enough info on dates etc yet to send off to be added to the DVD version??

DDM
04-03-2013, 09:26 AM
Guy's, the footage for both discs has just been finished, i have not yet burned the master copies, as i am struggling a bit with DVD menus, so i could still add something.

Im not sure it will be a good idea to have dates to one event, one that will have passed in 6 months, as this will only dissapoint people in the future, and "date" the DVD, i would like to think this DVD will generate a intrest in the sport for a years to come.


What might be better, is to add a website link to information that will get updated with event information "forever" and will not go out of date, that way if someone watches the DVD in 2 years time, they can still get current info about events :cool:





I have already adding links to DPS, and QORLS contact info (both during and at the end of the film) and on the DVD cover (i am half way through designing this as we speak).


I am open to suggestions from you all about other sites or info to add, but be quick as i would "like" to be going to print/burn in no more than 2 weeks :D

That's not a bad idea and you are right about the actual dates of events, it would give the DVD a lifespan of less then a year essentially

You can buy advertizing slots on Briz 31 for something like $20 per slot, so you could advertise an event etc during the playing of this show.

You can buy advertizing slots on Briz 31 for something like $20 per slot, so you could advertise an event etc during the playing of this show.

Sounds like a good idea, except, they don't really do one off ads, its average of $20 a ad, only if you bulk buy in blocks of 90 ads, starting at $1800+GST, then of course, someone still has to make the ad itself.


"The average cost of a 30 second spot on 31 Digital is an incredibly low $20. You can't get a classified ad for that! Packages start at $1800 + gst for a massive 90 x 30 second spots."


I rang 31 to see what deal i could get, and for under $1000, i can purchase the half an hour spot when the show gets aired, this give me 6 x 30sec ads to do with as i please, to be honest, i think ive got more than enough on my plate with what im doing so far, without having to make six ads, and certainly dont have the money, nor the time needed to chase sponsors etc. :)

Out of curiosity, whats it cost for the 30 min program slot.

If you are asking what we have paid 31 to air our show, the answer is nothing, and no payment has been discussed, we hoped (and we are proud) that they would recognize our footage as something they "want" to show, the first thing they asked after watching, was "do you have any other stuff ?".

And what does it cost to make a show they "want" to air ?, well a good idea to start with (well it seemed like it at the time, lol) a heap of camera gear, a little bit of money, lots of dedication, "well over" 300 hours work, and a very, very understanding family :)

Ok still trying to perfect the final master DVD footage and disk menu, having a few dramas , but hope to have it sorted soon.

We finished off the DVD cover artwork last night about 1.30am, here is a sneak peek, just remember you are looking at the open cover, so its front/back and spine.........:cool:

Cover looks great mate, but should it have a year on it maybe?

I think that was discussed a few posts above about not having a date on it to extend the life of the dvd or something like that.

Thanks guys,

If you mean to put 2012 on the front ? i can see where you are coming from, but labeled 2012, would make the DVD 12 months old "before" its even released.

Its kind of like buying a car i guess, once its 2013, you dont want something labelled last years model, even if its only a month old.

The Title as it stands (no date), it will remain true and accurate for ever, as it will always be the "first" aarcmcc aussie 1/5th off rd RC champs. :)

How about Downloadable Content?
Or released on Blue Ray

DVD resolution is 720x540 or around that, the video you put on you tube is at 720P res which is 1280×720.
I'd love to get a copy in the higher res and not the downscaled resolution of DVD format...

BTW, the sample you uploaded looks and sounds great, well done!

Thanks mate !


I am very glad you are aware of the resolution, but i can't promise you anything right now, and yes DVD quality is much less than what the footage is recorded in, unfortunatly (as you obviously know) that is just the way a "DVD" is recorded, a DVD is what we promised, and so this is what we will stick with for now.

Also, we need to compress the 2 hrs of finals on to "one" disc, so this requires further compression, but i am told it is still within normal limits of DVD burning.




Now, all that said, it did cross my mind to offer people the option of even better quality footage, but to be honest thats as far as i got ,i don't know how many people would want to spend extra for a blue ray type version, and im not 100% sure of all the logistics involved.

I really need to get the "DVD"s all done and "available", before even thinking of looking at any other format, and im exhausted from this project, ive continued to add to my work load, by adding more and more to try and make sure people will be happy (eg, now 2 discs = 3hrs), this of course puts the project more and more behind schedule.

In the end, Ill see just how many sell, and what feedback i get from the DVD, if the result is good i might look into what you suggest, if the result is bad, well, no point making higher quality copies of something that people don't want.



So while im not saying never, im going to finish what i said i would do, then im having a rest and spend some time with the family. :)

Or use PWN Youtube http://deturl.com/

Either type pwn in front of the url and you'll get prompted at what quality video to download, or even easier under Download Tools, click to add the book marklet. Then any YouTube video you can click on the bookmark / favourite and will give you download option.

Remember though, you tube applies it's own compression, so the Resolution may be the same, the bitrate will be lower, but still very good.

Ok, its done ! :high5:


I am finally all finished, Ill try and get the works to the Production company this week for mass production (well, small run production anyway, lol)

I want to get a one off copy made first, to make sure im happy with the print quality, if its all good, then i will order the rest. ;)



Below is what we came up with for disc design, (i want to try and get the text on the discs in clear, that way they will be mirror/disc colour instead of the white as pictured)
