I have been reading this thread for days.. (I only get the read a few minutes at a time) I believe I am at around May of 2010 and you have not yet put any water in the tank. Amazing project. I cannot wait to see how it all turns out!

I just started my tank back up after being down for 4-5 years and I am getting so many good ideas on what to do. Thank you so much for taking this project on and taking the time to teach us all how wonderful something can be if you give it the time and attention it deserves. After seeing how you treat a fish tank there is no doubt how you have been so successful in your life.

I wish you all the best and I hope to catch up to present day soon enough.

The last I heard was that the movie had failed to pass its first inspection by the Censor Board Review. Something to do with "excessive reef porn". Hopefully the next edit will pass the Censor and be available within the next couple of weeks.

Peter, I received one email and two PMs. Unfortunately, you did not Send the email from the address you want to test. If you receive my test message see if you can reply from the address you want to test, as that is the point, I think.

Dave.M

Update as promised

Its been a long while since any updates. We have been very busy with the build and have lots to talk about. We have been shooting videos for the last six weeks and have put together a 6 minute first episode to get some feedback before we release any others. This first episode is designed to give the first time visitor a general high level overview of this build and introduce the Four Masters who were inspirational in this build for both design and best practices.

This video also marks the milestone of 100% LED lights over the display tank. As I have noted earlier I am very impressed with the results and firmly believe that LED's now represent a best practice for our hobby. I am planning a full episode devoted to lighting to discuss the evolution of lighting with this build from the beginning as well as a look into the future as we further develop the quality and capability of this technology.

It was a challenge to release this episode as there were a million things and ideas we wanted to improve on but we realized just like everything else in this hobby there is a learning curve that we need to respect. That means we hopefully will get better with time and practice. The original source file was shot in 1080P and Phanfare lets you choose the resolution based on your equipment and bandwidth availability.

The 1080P is the best resolution but may not be suitable for everyone. If the video seems jerky or out of sync with the audio the choose a lower resolution. The levels are ‘LO’ ‘MED’ ‘HI’ and ‘HD’ . HD is 1080P and should be best on a high end system. ‘HI’ is 720P and is much easier to use for most folks. We are looking for feedback so please let us know.

The equipment used was the Gopro Hero2 with the 'BlurFix' lens attachment, Canon 5D II with a variety of L lenses, Canon XF 100 video camera. There's a bunch more accessories including lights, mikes etc but Rob Baxter our videographer was the real magic in the mix from my point of view.

The first question that I can anticipate will be “when is the next one” and I can say that we want to get some feedback before we do any more to hopefully improve the format to everyone’s’ benefit.

So with that brief introduction I will ask Dave M to post the video and hopefully find out it was worth while………

Peter

Fuzzy if you really want to raise the bar you have to acknowledge the Grand Master. Chingchai has just done a phenomenal update but I thank you for the compliment.

Peter

Vic you are waaaay too generous but shawn and I thank you. Recently I had the occasion to go back in time to look into my photo archive and even I was shocked to see the changes that have occurred but I have to admit that evolution is as much a critical factor to the successful experience quite apart from the occasional human interference!!!

Thanks again Vic.

Peter

Thank you for the feedback. This is very helpful if we can manage the same workflow for future episodes.

BRAVO! Tremendous job Peter, well worth the wait.

The cinematography was stunning - I loved everything about it (HD worked fine.)

Looking forward to future installments.

Peter, Shawn and the Team,

You have made an incredible job on the tank and on the presentation.

I am very happy to finally "see you in flesh" as opposed to seeing you static in pictures. I cannot give any critique on the video itself mainly because i am just so filled with joy and amazement

Once again great job guys.

Regards from Lithuania,
Dainius

Sir,
I have to watch it 5 times and it gets better and better each time.
Also I did notice any Achilles tang in the video.( It's one of Ching chai signature fish along with rare dwarf Angels and gem tang)
