Hello chaps, I got an idea that’s come to mind recently and want to see what y’all think. Feedback is more than welcome as we discuss what’s good and bad about this idea.
As we all know, the main use for funscripts right now is for video content, what about expanding this to image-based content such as mangas and doujinshis.
What do you think about expanding into image based funscripts?
Yes, it’ll be interesting
No, not interesting
How it would work in practice is; each page has multiple points that play on repeat as the user is reading said page. So, the rough idea is; for every page you can dot points and the time in between would be judged by the persons making the scripts best judgement on how long each scene on page takes to read. The idea being it’s trying to mimic how video funscripts work.
How do we differentiate between video and image funscript content?
Interesting stuff. I wasn’t aware of scripts like this where its a video of a manga, as it goes, with a funscript to follow. Makes sense, was going to say was kinda suprised if these things didn’t already exist.
I can see image-based funscripts benefit from less production overhead. You don’t need to record a video / hack around the video requirement format we’re trying to conform to, without a video the existing works shown wouldn’t really exist ofc. With less overhead; others can get involved easier, more quickly create.
Ideally, the solution towards this idea is done w/ the assistance of a specialised software being developed.
But, the advantage that the shared links of current works do benefit from is if they have sound, no hacking around, its a video anyways, slap it on and sync up the recording.
I guess what could happen for this idea is that for whatever software / tool is invented, when you are working on a page, you can upload an audio clip to use, or, use a global audio clip and sync up each page to the audio.
Do you think that it would still be viable to create a script for a recorded slideshow, timed to a reading pace that would roughly match the pace of speaking, plus a few extra seconds added for looking at the art?
It´s definitely interesting and something quite different to normal videos. I would like it, especially considering that there are some really great ones out there. And the artstyle of fixed images sometimes carry stuff that moved images like normal hentai hardly can. I often got the feeling that a lot of the style of a hentaimangaadaption got lost, most likely due to costs…
Will try the stuff posted here once I get an opportunity again, thanks^^
I was also thinking about a HMV manga style edit like this: Baki Vs Sukune (Full fight)🔥🔥🔥 - YouTube, minus the heavy metal ofc. I feel like this directing of visual focus would help with the timing of pattern changes/starting and stopping points, but at the same time, I worry if it is edited poorly, it could take away from the immersion.
