Hey people,

Thanks for checking out my Patreon page! It's amazing to know that my work inspired you, to the point where you considered to directly support me.

This really means a lot to me, as I put the video and audio quality of my projects in the first place. This means that I am often going to use music that will prevent me from monetizing my Youtube uploads. Having a perfect audio is simply too important to ignore, but I am more than okay with that, since the most important thing for me is - you being satisfied with the stuff I make for you!

Okay, now to be transparent and to tell you what my plans are!

First, to put some things into a right perspective - Dota 2 map has over 10,000 different models and props - trees, birds, stones and so on. Some of the scenes in my videos that last for only 5 seconds and are 10 times smaller than the Dota map have twice the amount of stuff you can see on the screen. If my PC needs 30 seconds to compile a new change in Dota 2 map file, some of my scenes need up to 15 minutes to process. This definitely makes things look appealing, but is at the same time making my PC want to commit suicide.

Obviously, the first thing that I am going to do is the PC upgrade. This would save the unimaginable amount of time that can be invested into an actual work.

The next thing that can be done to directly improve the quality is the implementation of Motion Capturing technology. The first video that was made ("I'll carry on") has the in-game animations. The second one ("Together we stand") has a basic Motion Capturing, done through the iPi software solutions and has over 50 custom made animations of running, walking, fighting and similar. The difference in the animation quality between those two videos is huge!

However, even the basic Motion Capturing solutions are rather expensive. But with your support, anything is possible!

Those are the two goals for now. Once we, if we, reach those two, I will definitely have other goals to show that will improve my work even more!

I have the inspiration, will and I believe, the quality, to make some amazing stuff for you. The only variable that needs to be eliminated is the wasted time. Rendering, processing and animating can eat up to 50% of the time invested into a single project. Having a good PC and equipment makes it possible for me to redirect that time into an actual work and new projects, what at the end means more content for you!

Should you decide to rather make a one time Paypal donation, the only way to do so (since my country Paypal does not have the direct donation option) is to send your donation to - [email protected]

That would be all for now!
