Typesetting Test by SEi

Post by SEi on Tue Jun 16, 2009 10:55 am

I'll be honest and say that I'm a beginner.
But at least I've been randomly editing manga pages for fun... for example:


Anyways, here they are... the tests;
One Piece:- - - -Over Drive:


Oh yeh, I'll have to say... the people who cleaned it did a really good job. It's sharpened and contrasted so much that I couldn't help looking at everything while I TSed Smile

for a beginner, not bad, not bad at all =D

your one piece page was impressive - my only qualm is with the size of the text in the first four bubbles (those bubbles in the 2nd frame). They're too close to the edges of the bubbles, and if you used a smaller text size and then centre the text again, it'd be all sweet.



in the first 2 red circles, same type of error as the ones you made in the OP page. the last one is slightly different though. the font size should be a little bigger, and if possible in your image editing program, you should tilt the text a bit. if that didn't really make sense, check out some of the other applications, and you'll get what i mean.

so does that mean that for one whole frame, the font size should be the same always? or does that depend on the speech type and whatnot?
and also, i quite understand what you're talking about since i read A LOT of manga in which that's mostly why i'm interested in this job Smile

and so,
i tried again! here you go:


hope it's better! Very Happy
if not, ill keep trying harder ^^

Oh I'm new here too Sei! We're noob-buddies, if you don't mind me lumping you with me under the unsavoury category.

So far the veterans in the TL team have been very generous with advice and helpful material, so I've no doubt your queries will be well-received. (They were so generous, I had to plead for time to digest everything...) It's hard work, but I'm still enjoying it thus far, even if it does leave me for the vultures in the following couple of days after a draft submission. While we won't work directly with each other, I hope we'll enjoy working in the same team together.

Good luck!

(forcing myself back to translating AnK 48...)

@ Kouri-chan: does that mean no one really helps each other unless it's an emergency concerning both parties? O__O; well. that's interesting xD

@ Porticulis: that's awesome Very Happy Noob-buddies ^^ and it's alright. a beginner is a beginner so no point in saying much more Razz

im not sure im understanding the "team" thing and "FTP" stuff. so until i get a job, im officially part of the staff? O__O; am i making sense?

and good luck Smile

SEi, I meant that no one asks questions XD

I don't get what you mean by not understanding the "team" thing... unless well... you don't get that we are a team? XD

As for the FTP, we store all our files on an FTP server. Details are in General Discussion in the staff forum, I think.

O__O; im not?

well. what i mean is:
in some other forums and whatnot (i kinda read a BUNCH of them just to get some ideas and so forth blah blah blah) it said something about FTP and stuff. so i looked that up but i still don't get what it is.

and then the "team" ;
i get that the whole scanlation group is a team but are there separate teams.. like, for example; different teams do a certain manga?

now am i making sense? O__O;

I'll help clear up FTP and procedures soon... there'll be a revised guideline of operations soon in the general discussion board of the staff forum.

as for sub-teams within our group... yeah you can say they exist. But most of the staff sorta stick their hand in more than one project... whichever you choose is up to you. Of course, when the leaders crack the whip (which will be somewhat rare), you won't really get to choose, otherwise, it's pretty free as to which project you want to do.
