Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

Does anyone remember me talking about some sort of a "tuggummi all" pack a while back? Well i've decided that i won't go through all of the presets and "fix" them or anything, it's my AVS history and i don't really want to change history. If a preset breaks simply because it was made with a older AVS version, then so be it! Besides will be "fun" to watch how i've made progress and grown as a AVS artist and what mistakes i've made back then, no?
So i decided i should just wrap it up in a nice clean package, but now i've run into another problem, remixes</b>. I just don't know what to do with them... i mean who "owns" the remix? The original artist? The remixer? What's the copyright on those things? Im a even allowed to spread them as i please or do i need to ask permission? I thought about re-contacting all the remixers and ask again for permission, but this would be very time consuming effort and even practically impossible on some remixerers case (some people just popped in and out and were never heard again, or some of even the old folks have left since).
So to include or not to include remixes, that is indeed the question.
Do i include them take my shot and hope no one complains?
Or do i cut em all out and play safe?

Your opinion?
Help? :please:

good choice not to go through the presets again.. if you feel pressure to do so you could still release a remastered packie ;P

dude, seriously i dont think anyone will mind. i personalli dont. i recall we all just added a mention of the artists involved on a comment. i dont think u would need to do more than that. i always considered the avs artists of 'our' time a few years ago had a very good understanding among eachother. i cant comment on the current situation though since iv been out of the scene for so long. ;P

i rememeber you mentioning this pack idea. i like what your going to do by not editing them. its always felt good to go through everything iv made in the past and really see how much i improved. go for it, man. cant wait to see it!

I don't remember this idea, hardly I remember any Idea written and kept in a waterproof box. Anyway it Is a good idea and if any of these remixes have been published already once and the other person has not flamed you for it, then I can't see a problem and moving on with it, as everyone would be happy of being republished. Yay.

you should just put the remixes in and say who did them. That way you are giving credit to the remixer. You are partly the creator of the remixes so you should be able to redistribute them as you wish.

I would try to ask $realitysquared -- because I have no idea.

Just as long as all the artists involved in the creation of the work of the preset are recognized, I don't imagine it would be much of a problem. Think about ^yathosho's stuff. He remixes presets of remixes taking elements from old old presets, so figuring out who made the damn thing can be convoluted.

And yes, I do remember that one-big-pack idea from a couple years ago. Kind of a cool idea, but I think a best-of/reworks pack would be better as you always want to put out your best stuff.

I don't really want to put out the best with this collection, i just want everything i've ever made to be available once again since i've purged them from time to time out of the net. But maybe as a separate pack, who knows?

If you got remixed, it's somehow a present to you :) share it!
And vice-versa: Since I think you wouldn't publish a preset that is more of a rip than a remix [in case you did such things in your early days :p] I guess it'd be pretty safe to release them alongside with clear credits because it's your work too and promotes the original artist as well.

[and of course we want to see these remixes too :D]

Amazingly i never ripped anyone, not even when i was n00by n00bsb0rn :confused: I always gave credit where credit is due, though i rarely used other people's work either :confused:

I always just wanted to do it myself =p

If you remixed their presets, ask.
If they remixed your presets, no need to ask.

At least that's how I've always thought of it. :confused:

Yeah, it's mostly people who have remixed me, everything i've remixed went straight to other packs, never into my own.

Use them, no matter if it's your remix or if someone remixed you.. unless the comments clearly tells you not to use it.

Yeah, they created the remixes to be shared, as long as you give credit to them in the installer/description, that should do.

I doubt anyone will complain.
Just do it.
