Re: Help needed for launch video and progress so far


Hi everyone,

Thanks for the suggestions.

Trung, unfortunately, my laptop is not recognizing my TV as an external
display with HDMI. I think it has to do with my graphics card using Optimus

Cody, you mean like this?
I think that looks good, and I'll look into it. But right now we have
another problem. Read on.

Raphael, thanks. I will post the videos soon. As for "elementary OS Luna,"
the only reason for it being so short is because the need to fit the music.
But alas, the composer just email me back this morning, stating that the
fee for licencing the song is $500 to $2000, although he can be flexible.
I'm going to email him back to tell him that we are not making any money
from this, but I don't think this will do much. In the mean time, I'm
already looking for other songs, so all the animations will change
