OneClipContest is a video editing contest channel. Each week, a new contest is uploaded, along with a results video from the previous week.
The judging process is pretty tedious. with around 50 to 100 entries each week it can take up a full day to get the final results and the final video done.
I started working for the channel around the time it launched it's 96th editing contest. I was in charge of providing footage for several games.
Once week 181 was launched, i became a manager of the channel, shortly after the original owner decided to leave and the channel was given to me.
After a solid 2 years i decided to pass the channel to Chris, a friend of mine, Who is now running the channel.
I created a script that downloads the entries directly off YouTube, writes a drawtext function to the countdown intros and renders the final video.
Videos can be downloaded in up to 4k.
