New steps to take to improve my programming skills

09 December 2014 - 06:11 AM

Hi,

 

I am not a programmer but I do it as a hobby and I am really starting to get a good understanding of the languages like C++ or C#.

 

However I have no clue on what to do for the next step.

 

I wish to start to program stuff that are real (little) programs that you can run on their own and have a GUI.

 

I am also very interested in creating programs that allow you to use boxes that you can connect together to do stuff (like UE4 blueprint but way simpler obviously).

 

However I have no clue where to start for any of those so I'd really love to have some help to get on the right path.

 

I also don't know what the difference in the code are if you want to run a program on windows and then on mac.


Questions about QA Testing as a stepping stone

03 December 2014 - 09:36 AM

Hello,

 

So I am currently doing an internship as a sound designer (I am into audio) and everything is going well, I made good contacts and all but I will have to find a new job soon because the company can't keep me right now even if they seem definitly keen on taking me back if they need me for some projects.

 

 

I will start to search as a sound designer but if it doesn't work here is the question :

 

A lot of sound designers start as QA from what I understand and I am definitly ok to do that. My question is, how do I turn my CV and everything to make them believe that I want to do "QA" and not "QA as a stepping stone".

Certainly if I put my degree about audio, my demo reel about sound design, my website and my projects all about audio they are going to assume I don't really want to be a QA (which is not really true, I don't mind being one but not as a complete career).

And if I just don't tell about my degree and stuff they will probably ask me what I've been doing all those years.

 

I don't really know how to deal with that.

 

I guess some of you had to deal with that since QA seems to be the entry level position people use to get into the industry for all kinds of jobs.

 

Thank you.


SFX legal rights

02 December 2014 - 05:18 AM

Hi people,

 

I have a question about SFX legal rights as the title says.

 

I would like to sell some sounds that I would make (not a full library but just a few on audiojungle for example), can I sell sounds that I made FROM a library (let's say a BOOM one) that I own (obviously I bought it it's not cracked from the internet)?

And obviously again, it's original sounds, not the ones that are on the library. The BOOM ones have a constructed part on their library specificaly so you can make your own sounds.

Or do I have to do that only with sounds that I record myself?

 

I know you can use these libraries for movies/games and stuff but it's not really a re-selling of SFX.

 

Thank you.


Sound Design oriented website

27 November 2014 - 11:05 AM

Hi guys,

 

I was wondering if you happen to know any sound design forum in english which is (very) actve? I am looking around but so far no luck.

 

This one is active but mostly composers.

 

I know audible worlds but there is not a lot of people there. Or maybe they don't give feedback, posted my stuff like 3 weeks ago and nothing.

 

I am also part of G.A.N.G but the forums are pretty much as dead as it gets.

 

I am looking for a place where I could get a lot of feedback from other sound designers, pro or not.

 

Or is there this little amount of Sound Designers in the world?

 

 

Thank you in advance.
