Left sun/Left C-Fan (difference) tutorial
« on: December 10, 2005, 05:39:39 pm »
Hey you guys,

Recently on diastylo.nl (Dutch diaboloforum) we had some discussion about the difference between synch and asynch shuffles/tricks, and someone asked the difference between left suns and a left c-fan. We explained, and I made a little tutorial. So I thought let's post it on d.ca as well!

I already knew the difference but the tutorial was nice and I'm sure some people would have found it useful.

Your videos are always so fun to watch!  The different angles are really cool even though I already knew the difference, and the quality and setting were neat too.  

Thanks,
Andy

And the mp4 is also up now.

Thanks for those kind words! I just like making videos, and since I learnt using Vegas and Virtualdub the quality is very nice! :)

for the record: you owe it all to me, I asked for the difference ;).

Great vid Martijn, you should make a long film soon with a story or something, the intro was cool with the foggy Dutch landscape and the James Bond tune :).
some people think they are better because they can do something better

I was unsure myself, until I learned from Diabology that a c-fan is just consecutive suns, just without the "set-up throw" between each one. The different angles in that video demonstrated that point nicely. I'm sure that video was informative and helpful to those who didn't know the difference.

You have a knack for putting together a nice video. Good editing, transitions, all that stuff.

Hey, thanks for posting in the right thread, searching can be hard sometimes. :)

I look at the Fan as an asynch sun motion. Learn the regular Fan (left / counterclockwise), learn left suns, and try to go from left suns (which are synch), into an asynch motion (left-right-left-right), so your left sun becomes a left C-Fan. It's exact the opposite of a regular Fan. There are several ways to start it:

 - left sun (aka out of 'nothing')
 - high toss (magic knot/handstart/'pop' out)
 - outside transfer

In the beginning you won't be able to do more than 2 or 3 revolutions, but with practise you can try to hold it longer and longer. Remember, the left diabolo loses spin, especially with really old string.

ok...i can do all this..the unic problem is i cant go into the asinch motion....i can do all basics fan (also swingini and 360 or more but this is the most difficult!

Have you tried different entries? That's what I found one of the hardest parts really... I first learnt the high toss start, that was the easiest for me.

I could mirror it for a while - if Martijn has no objections that is.

Woops, after changing the location of the files, I totally forgot to change it on here. No need to mirror them (because the links are working again, and if not, I'd be happy to upload them again), but thanks for noticing. And I'd rather take care of my videos myself.

I hope you find the video useful stroevey.

I still can't do the C-fan, but I can do the normal fan (or can't I Martijn :)?), is it really just a matter of reversing the arm-movement?
