I'll update this post as things get bought/set up.
- Better Lighting
Status: DONE! Better lighting provided via a couple of LED lamps. Thanks to Mint Plays!
- Better Webcam Video Quality
Status: Ongoing. I have a Logitech C920 Webcam so I don't think there's a better webcam that currently exists. I may eventually get a video camera and use it as a webcam for videos. Still researching this. Let me know if you have any ideas.
- Replace Facerig Avatar in News Bit With Me
Status: Not Yet. This will require a decent quality video camera (which I may also end up using as a web cam) and a green screen plus something to light everything with. I can probably use my little writing desk, and I'll need to get something (just the top half) to wear that looks news-y.
- System Upgrade
Status: Soon-ish. Right now I use an Intel 3770k CPU OC'd to 4.5GHz, 16GB of DDR3 RAM and an AMD Fury X GPU. I had planned on waiting until the new 8 core/16 thread AMD CPUs to come out early next year for an upgrade, but I'm JUST scraping by right now in the RAM department. Thankfully I'll get a little more help here from Mint Plays! soon. Seriously, go check out her channel and subscribe. I'll be upgrading my current system to 32GB of RAM within the next couple weeks.
I'm definitely still looking forward to those new AMD chips. Having 8 high performance cores is going to be very nice for rendering and the silly way in which I record videos using two separate copies of OBS. (If you'd like me to do a video demonstrating that, let me know.)
- Ask DavidGX Videos
Status: Too Soon? I'd like to do a regular, or perhaps semi-regular, "Ask DavidGX" where people submit questions and I answer them. I've put out a call for questions to my Ask.fm page but haven't gotten much response. Anonymous questions are enabled so if I get enough (maybe 10 answerable questions) I'll do a video answering them. This might just be a thing I have to wait to do until I have a larger audience.
- Live Streams
Status: Testing. I'd like to do more live streams. But, again, this may be something I'm forced to wait on until I have a larger audience. I've messed around with streaming a little bit on my Twitch Channel and it's gone fairly well. I may switch to doing streams directly to YouTube but I need a bigger audience before either option is really viable. I'd love to stream more but I think spending the time on my YouTube channel would be a better use of it right now.
