A remix of viva la Vida by Coldplay. Not sure which, there's probably heaps.

General / Re: 3 diabolo trick name?
« on: December 07, 2014, 04:16:37 AM »
I feel like the trick has 2 parts. The sun to wrap would have one name. (Since you can wrap either the 1st, 2nd, 3rd or any combination of those, the name should allow for this.) the second part is just the exit, and since their are multiple ways to exit (left arm stall, a unwrap and recap to hover, that exit, or the similar one where they don't do the 42 motion but rather a 33.) you could probably make a name for that specific trick, but it probably makes sense to name it in 2 parts for flexibility. "Sun to single right wrap with an "Asian" exit" lol.

Tricks / Re: vertax spin genocide
« on: December 04, 2014, 12:17:33 AM »
Did you mean a vertex genocide and while the diabolo is in the air off the string you do a 360/pirouette? Or is it something different.

I'm New / Re: starting the diabolo
« on: November 21, 2014, 09:19:45 AM »
Theres tonnes of ways to correct turning. try googling/youtube Diabolo corrections.
More speed will stop it turning so try learning a more advanced speeding up method. Itll just all come with learning new tricks. By the time you are ready to perform it shouldn't be a problem.

Technical / Re: How fast does a diabolo spin

If you know the exposure time the camera used in your photo Richard then you'll be able to get a rough estimate (for that specific case atleast) :D Count the revolutions.

I assume this is the study you were thinking about.
http://steinsharpe.com/nate/Strobe_Lab_files/Final%20Paper.pdf
They don't talk about the usual speed of a diabolo before tricks, but you'll be able to get a rough idea from their graphs (after 2 circular wrap accelerations etc). Most of it is in degrees per second, but just multiply that by 60s/360deg and you'll have RPM. They also mention the maximum speed achieved for each speed up method, so you'll be able to use that as well (It would be quite above the usual speed however).

The paper is form 2008 so diabolos may have changed a bit since then. However I think what decides the relative speeds of a diabolo would be axle diameter. Since the speed of a diabolo moving along the string during speed up would remain roughly constant, the axle diameter is what transfers this into angular velocity. Maybe check what the axle diameter of the diabolos they used and compare that to common ones these days.

Practice / Re: 4 Diabolo Low attempt
« on: October 21, 2014, 11:59:40 PM »
Answering as someone who cant do 4, it looks like you aren't controlling each individual diabolo. For example, in this vid, the first pop from the left hand (excluding the 2 in the stall) is about the right height. The next one has too much force and the next doesnt have enough. Presumably this is because the first is from a stall so you are giving it enough push. The second is from a highish throw in, so has more energy, and the 3rd is from a smaller height so doesnt have enough. It is my understanding that you will probably need to adjust these individually until the shuffle gets into the rhythm of things(more/less push/pop) This is assuming this is a consistent issue, so if you find this happening in your other attempts then I think its a good assumption.

As a general suggestion, your left hand is popping the diabolos across. If you watch other peoples you can see that they very much throw up rather then across.

Hopefully someone else with a bit more experience can give some advice.

Does anyone have any footage of the blue version of these in action? I'm about to order some but still cant decide between green and blue :S I know colour doesn't really matter, but I perform often so I'm a bit picky.

Cheers.

Tricks / Re: 3 diabolo mini columns - Please help!!!
« on: August 01, 2014, 10:43:24 AM »
I believe there's several different ways to do 3D minicolumns, so the "final throw" is abit vague. I assume you mean the diabolo at your  side?
I don't think theres any trick to it, but usually with these types of things it helps to try and push it to the extreme in the direction you want it to go. So if you want it to go to go more to the right, try to push it REALLY far to the right, and it will hopefully land where you want it.

That was amazing! Loved all of it.
I was working towards that continuous 2D mini-gen the other day (Long way off) Didn't expect it could look as beautiful as that though. Definitely going to keep learning it.

I liked your 1D stuff. Simple, smooth and awesome. And looks like you'll have 3D in no time!

You could probably divide the workload to make things a bit easier.
Obviously it will cause more harm then good if you split it up too much (communication issues and conflicting ideas etc) but perhaps have someone handling the incoming videos, editing out any irrelevant parts that the submitter didn't bother to do themselves (unless its interesting enough to include), and do the deciding as to what gets included. Perhaps this would be useful to do as a pair of people so multiple opinions can contribute.

Then send them through to another person who can focus on the more artistic side of editing. Song choice, transitions and all that fancy stuff.

I haven't had anything to do with the previous collabs so my apologies if this isn't anything new.

General / Re: Any Idea????
« on: June 10, 2014, 12:17:09 PM »
Pretty difficult question to answer in my opinion.
The step from infinite suicide to other stick releases (integrals etc) is pretty large, so Id say focus on something else until you get more comfortable with infinite suicides and other suicides. Although if you haven't learnt minigenocides or genocides that that's totally a nice place to go.
Try maybe 2D or Vertax if you haven't already.

Did you mean this one?

But judging by your pic I assume you mean this:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=33PIQSPCUp0&index=11&list=PLiEw7N_cUUwdes62OC0f25gx9XoAg4gxa

You can either:
Deal with it and not do the trick for very long.
Or there is a fancy way to grab the string such that it doesn't. ^^its explained in the vid.
Not in English but still easy to understand.

Congrats on the win!
I cracked up after the countdown! Well done.
I always structured my acts increasing in diabolo number, because I assumed that after seeing 2, audience members wouldnt think anything with 1 would be hard. But maybe this isnt the case. I shall need to think about it.
Either way!
Good work.

Tricks / Re: Slowcide mini-genocides: wrong wrap
« on: May 28, 2014, 12:51:00 AM »
What AznnBozaZ said is a good idea regardless. What he means is you can do a minigen from both a right frontwrap and a right backwrap. As the stick flys around while the diabolo is unwrapping, you need to make sure it passes either behind or infront of the string you are holding (depending on which wrap you use). Try doing a normal minigen using a different backside and it has a similar effect.
So one option is to be aware of what wrap you have when you land the first minigen, so you know which minigen to perform for the next one.

Im not very good at doing it that way, although it is probably a good skill to have in the long run.
What I do is just have the minigen land on the same side everytime. This is mostly because of practice and it has just become consistent. However if you really want to make it land on one side youd need to make sure as the stick wraps infront (or behind) the string you are holding as you land the minigen. I find infront easier (Althought that makes for a harder minigen in my opinion). To do this try pulling the string you are holding towards you as the strick passes, giving it more room to pass infront. Eventually you wont need to do this (or you'll be doing so subtly that you wont notice).

Sorry, that was very difficult to explain with all the wraps and unwraps :S  Let me know if I need to clarify anything.

General / Re: Vertex with Henry Vision?
« on: May 21, 2014, 07:57:37 AM »
I don't know much/anything about Henry's Vision but typically you don't 'need' a certain type of diabolo to do any trick (with a few exceptions regarding fixed axles and flys), however some diabolos make things more difficult than others. Different weights etc.

When you say Vertex, you're either referring to Vertax, where the diabolo spins vertically or Vortex, the trick with 2 diabolos. There are tutorials on both of these around. If you've had a look at them and still aren't sure, record a vid of your attempts and post it here and we can give you advice.
