3D Animated Gif Artist
Not had much experience making videos and it ain't easy
This looks really nice! I love it.
YouTube has artists badges but unfortunately they are only for musicians.
Adding a banner makes your channel look great. You can search in YouTube on how to do that but look at only recent videos. There is a lot of old stuff on YouTube that isn't very helpful.
Banners must be fairly large pixel-wise. They are tricky to do. Believe me, I've had to make several attempts to make them come out right. They have to fit a TV, mobile phone, and webpage.
It's all very new to me, I used the Microsoft Video Editor to make the video and added some stock music, YouTube told me it had copyright, so I had to change it. Next step is to try some speech audio over one. Did not realize you could add a banner, I will have a look. Did you see the last video I posted seven years ago
Oh I'll take a look now. Beautiful place. BTW, YouTube stock music is the the YouTube Studio under Audio Library. Click on Manage Videos and you will see the Audio Library. I think you need a banner before you can see all these things. The banner is tricky. You have to make it fit the TV, mobile phone, and webpage to look right and you can only see the entire banner on a TV. It's weird.
Every social media website seems to need a different size banner and none I have made previously fit. I will make one tomorrow. I do know what you mean about making it viewable on different devices, mobile phones being the difficult option.
On Tenor my gif views have gone through the roof and the past few days I have been averaging 6 to 17 million views a day and on Giphy I'm not too far away from the Billion view mark for all time.
I thought maybe it was time to make a YouTube channel, I intend to encourage people to use the add caption facility and I will make a video for that

Does my video show up when you search free animated gifs or is it because YouTube knows I'm logged in
You want me to Google it or search on YouTube? I'll try both.
Just on YouTube, I get good results for 3dgifartist on Google in the UK and it is an easy way to find me
I can't find the video in search results on YouTube yet. It may take a day or two and hopefully it will show up.
Put this hashtag in the description of you video then wait a couple of days and then click on the hashtag. #3dgifartist

Another thing is you can make a Brand channel to keep it separate from your personal channel but you don't have to do that. My channel is a Brand channel. I'll subscribe from my personal channels also but there are no videos on them.
Have emailed Kath, I do hope she is all right.
Tomorrow I will investigate all the things you have mentioned
I have been busy this evening and will retire to bed shortly ...Cheers.
Thanks for your help Craig, I will get back to everything later
Kathy replied to my email, and it seems she is having problems connecting to my website. Since she has had her second jab she has had several infections and has not been feeling too well. She said "Give my best to Craig..tell him I've missed his hugs" (What have you been up to Craig, I'm jealous)
Done the supermarket shop this morning and did not put any chocolate into the trolley, I really am putting on just a little too much weight.
Off to design a banner for YouTube and have a closer look at everything
I'll send Kathy a get well quick email.
Someone has tried to break into my bank account from Russia. Luckily he didn't succeed with all my account protections I have in place. I changed passwords again and always have 2 Step activated.
I'm putting on too much weight also. I just want to eat cheesecake and all those goodies.
Dot is in charge of the finances, and I'm happy with that. I'm a very poor manager. She refuses all offers from our bank manager to use the bank account online.
Have you had any reactions to the jab, Kathy thinks it has made her more susceptible to any virus floating about.
No I haven't had any reactions to the jabs. I trust that these jabs will protect me. I get flu shots every year so this is no big deal for me.
Hiya.. I've been to Y/T & saw your video..well done.. 👋Left you a message there too.. (Also subscribed to yours & Craig's channels😉)
Hope you are all ok.. Regards to one & all.. From a very soggy Gloucestershire!!
Hiya Corinne, saw the message when I was uploading a banner, I will post a few videos but they take a long time to make. It was Pinterest that got me interested because they kept giving me prompts to make a video, which I have and uploaded, and it's had a thousand views so far.
Wet and soggy here also, Dot is in the garden planting some runner beans that we started off in the porch and getting damp and dirty (just how I like her)
Thank you for subscribing.
@Dave Sutton Getting views in YouTube is much more difficult. We're competing with some of the very best video creators there.
😮I'm not sure i needed to know that..!!
(Re Dot & dirty..!!!😂)
But well done on doing the vids.. :0)
And good luck with all futere ones.. You'll be a pro in no time.. ;0)
I'm never happy with anything I create, Dot used to get very upset with me when I did water colours and would throw them away. I look at the videos and can certainly see ways of improving them but as I say, they can only get better.
Onwards& Upwards.. Is the only way to go..
You painted..and you threw them away.. Shame on you.. I would've loved to have seen one.. :0(
In our early days we never had much money, so I would often give paintings as wedding presents and things like that. I have only kept a couple of paintings and this is one that I did of my daughter who is now 40
@Dave Sutton Did you see this? If you make a vertical video then you just need to add the hashtag #Shorts in the description. I asked PeggyK about this and she said you don't have to use a mobile phone to make one. But you do need an editor that can make the 9:16 video size which is the opposite of the standard 16:9 size.
@Dave Sutton That painting is terrific!
WoW.. That's an awesome painting.. Such a man of many talents aren't you.. ;0)
Ty for sharing.. Do you still paint? & if not why not.. (I wish i could!)..
I struggle a bit with delicate work as I have essential tremor, I take medication for it but try not to overdo it. My salvation for creativity has been computer graphics where delicate work is so much easier for me.
