S-Fan Exits: A Video Tutorial (with 2 new exits)

I thought out another start as well.
Its inspired by the armstall exit sean does in this video.
Get to this armstall however you want to.
From there swing the diabolo around to a stopover on left stick and then just start the s-fan by undoing the stopover.

That's the start Dave P. uses in his first S-Fan video of the week ( :wink: ) cool that you've thought of it by yourself. :)

I shuld obviously spend more time whatching old movies lots of cool stuff there
 :)
Annyway I got another Idea for an exit, it involves one of those freaky swinging fans that JGherkin does in his fan-video. (no I cannot do them yet...).
Idea is like this.
If you do one swing with the lefthand diabolo the string will change its crossing.
Its kind of like when you do a sun with one.
Now the string will be in possition so  that you can exit the s-fan with a simple magic knot from below on the rigth stick.
I tried to do the moves with one diabolo and it went ok.
Also tried it with "nonmoving" (on the ground and lifting them around) diabolos an it semed to be working.
Maybe some of you "swingers" culd try this out and se if it works...

//Edit clarification
Having whatced te swing I have to make clear that I meant  the LH diabolo shuld pass outside Lh once and no more swinging than that.

Thanks Mr Pink it works a treat :D and it's actually much easier than the swinging fan!

Yeah congrats MrPink, how'd that manage to pop into your head?  It took me a while to get my head round what was going on but its quite easy to learn other than that.

Get your s-fan going, you've got a great understanding of them already, I can see once its solid you'll be flying with all these ideas you keep havin

Sounds brilliant!

Um... video of the week anyone? please!?  :) (Mr. Pink can get the attribution for thinking of the trick, of course. I'm impressed.)

Great that it worked! :)
It semed to me that all s-fan exits involves some tricky stuff at the rigth hand  side because the string was crossed in the "wrong way". So I thougth there ougth to be some way to get the string crossed in the "rigth way" to make the exit simpler. A sun to the side twist the string 360 degrees. here we go...
 Trying to find ways to exit with one diabolo with the string in "the wrong way" was a good way to get and test ideas.
There is probably some way involving a couple of "swings" to make a magic knot on the left stick as well...

I'd love to video it Sean but my camera's out for replacement atm, dunno when I'll get it back as the store don't seem to stock the same model anymore and are ordering me one specially  :)

Also I think I had some beginners luck with it, as my swinging fan has completely taken over when I try now, I can't seem to just let one diabolo do the sun, I automatically have the other one follow and I end up in a right mess if I don't continue the swing on the other side  :(  I'll leave it to somebody else for a vid and go back to practising.

A really good S-Fan enterance I use is a cross armed hook stall.  I pop one high and cross left over right.  Uncrossing the arms leaves the left diabolo darksided and the S-Fan position assumed.

Think Sean is using Adobe Premiere. But it's not about the software. It's about video codecs and their configuration (and also about compression of the background music). Think best are DivX or XviD or Windows Media Codec (connected with Microsoft Movie Maker which I really don't like)

Jojo, yes I use Premiere for editing... but you can use any editing software and get the same video quality. You'll want to export as an uncompressed .AVI movie file and compress your video with another piece of software such as VirtualDub or TMPGEnc.

I wrote a tutorial on converting MPEG files with TMPGEnc, which I used for the medium quality version of this video.

I used VirtualDub and Koepi's XVID codec to convert the XVID high quality version. XVID offers better compression, so at the same bitrate as an MPEG, the quality will look better with an XVID codec. So, with the same bitrate as the MPEG I doubled the frame size and got a better looking video.

Best thing to do is have a long look around Google for all the help you'll need with this. Usually you just have to search hard enough. There's lots of information out there on video compression. ;)

Wohiiii!!!
New s-fan exit that works in practise for me!!!
When Lh dibolo passes Rh stick stop the fanning movements and do a milisecond grind on the RH stick and simply flick it up into the air and catch it in the shuffle when its comming back down again. Its so simple that I wonder why nobody did it before (maybe they have but just dont want to tell...)
I actually landed this on the fift atempt.
cheers

I posted about a new (to me) sfan exit in  the I just learnt thread and Jgherkin bit (as I knew he would ;) )

I've only got it a couple of times but hey ho.

basically when I go for Seans triangle exit sometimes I miss the stopover so I end up with a choke knot, if you do a bw unwrap you end up with a very slow spinning diabolo in a wrap on the darkside, a bit of judicious jiggling and tapping twists the diabolo through 180 degrees cw, few more jerks to get speed up and unwrap.

Bobs your very sketchy rescue of an sfan exit. I've only got it a few times so far and I dont think its really a first option trick, kind opf satisfying though.

Not as handy as my rocket wrap entry John (taught a few poiers how to do 2 diabolos that way :) )

Is that not the original 180 exit in the first ever trick of the week?

I was thinking of your unusual wrap theories when I did it though Norbi
