Hi guys just wanted to say that CE3 2011 is almost a go. Were gonna try not to make it as chaotic as last years so stay tuned to this thread and wait for a full announcement of CE3 2011.


Welcome to the official Halo Custom Edition Entertainment Exposition for 2011 thread!

So what is CE3?
CE3 is to show off what the Halo CE community is up to. From maps to apps to simple little projects and animations. As long as its CE related.

So kinda like E3?
Somewhat like it, but there are differences in how our stuff is presented.

So when is CE3 2011?
CE3 is July 8th at 8pm Eastern Timing USA. 5pm PST.

So CE3 is just a bunch of trailers?
I guess in short, yes. But we have interviews with some exciting projects, and gameplay demos. We also have machinima portions in-between the trailers to keep the show running smoothly.

What big names are in CE3?
The attendees list is being kept a bit more secretive this year and instead to promote the show, were going to put out teasers for projects that seem interesting.

Will this show be on Youtube?
It and all extended trailers and interviews will be available on youtube throughout the weekend afterwards.

Whats the point of watching the live stream then?
You will have a chance to chat about the projects as they are happening. Also there will be a chance to win 1600 Microsoft Points to use at the Xbox Live Marketplace, Games for Windows Live Marketplace, or Zune Marketplace.

Last years live stream sucked, why should this years be any better?
Last year I had less than 24 hours to shove 3/4 of the projects into the show. A lot of machinima moments and interviews had to be cut, or opposite, stuff that dragged on wasn't cut down. This year anything submitted past 7/1 will be put on a waiting list, giving me time to actually work on the show.

Can I rewatch last years stream?
A youtube playlist is available for the projects. The stream it self never made it to youtube. http://www.youtube.com/playlist?p=PLE3FC373E8B473BFB

Submitting something?
Can I get cookies?
If you enter something into CE3 you will be put in a random drawing to earn 3 months of Xbox Live.

I want to submit something. How do I go about doing so?
Step 1: Make sure your project is worth presenting. Is your project just a simple blood gulch mod, campaign mod, or a random worth nothing app? If so it might be rejected. If whatever isn't all exciting, but has enough potential to show, it may be presented in a cut-down or VO format for the live stream. If your unsure if we will reject you or not before you go out and make a trailer just simply contact MatthewDratt over Xfire or here on Halomaps.
Step 2: Now that your project is worth showing off, make sure you have the ability to record. If you are unable to record what you want, you can send MatthewDratt (Xfire/Halomaps) your project and Dratt has a beast PC so he can record it for you, and even send the files back if you want to edit it yourself. You can make a trailer or gameplay demo for maps, a commentary or demo for apps, or trailers or segments for Machinimas.
Step 3: Now that your video is perfected simply send it to MatthewDratt (Xfire/Halomaps). He will receive it and put it in the show. You can directly send it to him, dropbox it, or mediafire it.

What format should the video be?
The stream will be presented in 16:9. But if you are only able to record in 4:3 DO NOT stretch to fit 16:9. Simply send the video in the 4:3 format.

Preferred resolutions:
16:9 Formats (Widescreen)
360p: 640x360 (Minimum)
480p: 856x480
720p: 1280x720
1080p: 1920x1080 (Pixel Aspect Ratio: 1.000)
1080p: 1440x1080 (Pixel Aspect Ratio: 1.333)

4:3 Formats (Square)
360p: 480x360 (Minimum)
480p: 640x480
720p: 960x720
1080p: 1440x1080

What should the framerate be?
Please keep the framerate to 60FPS Maximum and 25FPS Minimum. If you are unable to record at these speeds MatthewDratt (Xfire/Halomaps) will be more than willing to record the video for you and send you the files back to edit. If you want to show off something specifically you can send a low framerate video that Dratt can try to copy.

What should the file-type be?
Any common video file openable by Sony Vegas. .WMV, .MOV, .MP4 are the most preferred formats. .AVI's are fine if it uses a common codec.

Where should I upload my video?
The best places to do so are Dropbox, and Mediafire. Or a direct send over Xfire or Skype.

How long should my video be?
We have always gone with a 'not to long' type of response for this. This is simply because it all depends on how exciting your project is. We hope you are responsible enough to decide how long you need to get your point out there. From 30 seconds to 5 minutes if you need. As long as you keep your video entertaining. Though, to keep the live stream running at a smooth pace we may indeed need to cut your video down during the live stream. Your video uncut will be available on youtube for everyone to see if they want to check out your project more.

How do I know if my video is entertaining?
Do not drag on your video. We don't need ever square inch of your map, just the exciting moments. For single player gameplay demos, show off the big encounters or bosses. Or what makes your single player map stand out. For multiplayer gameplay demos, maybe show off some online matches in some of your favorite areas of the map. For apps give a quick demo of what it does. Don't drag on about how it does it or anything.

Can I get an interview?
Just have a mic ready and contact SlayerMaster/SlowBullet and we will set up a time on Skype to record.

Does my project need to be finished?
No. WIP is completely fine to show at CE3.

Done! I'll just post my video here on the thread.
.......that's not really the point of this. Its to show off new stuff that hasn't been seen before. Thats why you would come to watch CE3. Not stuff that is already publicly available. Send Dratt a PM with your video link. Not this forum.

We are always looking for stuff to put into CE3, so give it a try!

There might be a red/cyan 3D part of the show. I promise it wont drag on for to long if you are unable to watch it.

This is the second year and we are still learning how to do this correctly. So please give us feedback and suggestions base on what we are doing.

Btw you are not considered 'in' CE3 until you submit something or you are reliable.
I dont want 20 people going, "Im in" then never actually turning in something.

Unlike last year, if you want on the list we need proof you can be on the list so

a video of your map, animation, machinima or w/e CE related thing you have is your ticket into CE3. and the preshow lobby with us :D

Yes, I'm terribly disappointed Dratt.

I know :*(.
Well submit when you can then.....
Mostly anyone can be in as long as its not crap.

Also to get this out here
DEADLINE IS JULY 1ST. IF YOU SUBMIT AFTER THIS DATE YOU WILL BE PUT ONTO A WAITING LIST AND MAY OR MAY NOT MAKE IT INTO CE3. (This prevents a crappy final show)

I just think it's silly that

(1) From what I understood Dratt just told me only pro people are allowed to go on
(2) You're recruiting so soon. I would recommend at least waiting until May, when some definite projects are going on.

I have a nice little map I'm working on, and plan to revamp it. But no, I'll wait until the deadline is announced and submit it 2 weeks before.
(Not too excited about the voice lobby though)

E: Fine, I'll submit on my birthday. Awesome.
Edited by Julian on Feb 3, 2011 at 06:50 PM


1: No you dont have to be pro. we just dont want a horrible blood gulch mod.

2: The sooner the better. Heck if you made something after CE3 2010 you can show it off for CE32011

So everyones welcome. you just may get rejected if we think no one else will like it. It's easy to get past my liking but Dratt's is another story.

CE3 2010 was terrible. What will make this any better, in terms of presentation, target audience, and availability?

What will you endeavor to do in order to make this fulfill its core purpose without the exclusivity and lack of new audience that 2010 had?

It will actualy be made better. like due to the fact that most people last year could turn there videos in like the day before.

So this one will be ran much better. more interaction from the audience, new features, and much much more.

Trying our best. Thats why we announced it early this year. That way people will have time to submit things. Yes you can submit 1 week before the deadline. But I dont want stuff 1 day before the show.

Twice? I don't recall the other incident and if there was one, I will make sure not to let it happen again. I always thought bypassing the filter was like using periods or numbers within a profane word, but I guess letters with stars is considered bypassing. Duly noted.

You know it's funny because most curse words actually meant/mean something normal before people decided to attach other stupid meanings to them.

They're still in progress. It's junior year so I have barely any time to get on the computer, let alone work on Halo. But once summer comes around, hopefully work will resume :P

Lumoria was in it last year so I assume it's both. Plus if it was multiplayer only I probably wouldn't bother checking it out.
