Re: Cutscene for Failure on Endgame Petition
@VA: If we could raise enough money to buy you a new compy, would you take that as payment to do cutscenes?  XD  Actually, though, it's not a bad idea.  What exactly is the optimal compy for rendering?  Dual?  Quad?  64-bit? Intel or AMD?  GFX card - ATi or nVidia?  OS - XP? Vista?  Linux?  Memory - 4GB or 8GB?

Hehe....  IDK if this would work, but I'm not adverse to finding out.  Hmm.  Perhaps if we got enough HLPers interested, we could get Icey a compy too.  It's just an idea, but I'd like to get some feedback from VA and / or Icey on good comp specs, then perhaps post a poll about how much people would be willing to donate for a computer(s) for VA and / or Icey.  Again, maybe it's just a pipe dream, but... ;)

Re: Cutscene for Failure on Endgame Petition
lol, thanks muchly for the thought, but I intend to get a secondary rendering machine sometime next year anyway. :)
The best way to get me to make some of those ST cutscenes would actually be the release of ST:R, because I never played ST in the first place. The death vs survival of the Hades sounds like cool cutscene material, but I'd need to actually have played the whole campaign to get a proper feeling for the setting.

And to be honest I'd really rather HTL more ships in the near future if for no other reason than having nicer models to use in these sort of cutscenes. ;)
For example:







They'll be allright for this sort of cutscene where they're either zipping around or exploding, but anything more and their age would certainly show. :(

IceyJones: The starfield I'm using is a blender special setting - it works quite nicely, and doesn't require the huge textures that a skybox does.
Get the 2014 Media VPs and report any bugs you find in them to the FSU Mantis so that we may squish them. || Blender to POF model conversion guide

Re: Cutscene for Failure on Endgame Petition
hehe...nice idea, but i have enough computers actually ;)
- amd x2 4600
- athlon 1000
- centrino duo laptop

for my rendering purposes totally enough ;) but if you could get one of these:


i would not say "no"  :lol:

regarding the star-texture, i´m also using the shader solution from cinema, but it does not look like in the media VPs.....i´m still looking for the texture of the mvps. i remember i saw it in one thread somewhere.....

okay....i found it. problem was, that the thumbs were removed already :-/

Hmm... what is it, and what are its specs?  How much does it cost (about)?

O.o  Gaaa!  Guess I think we won't be taking up collections, I doubt the average HLPer would be able to put $1000 in a pot... Darn!  :(

Re: Cutscene for Failure on Endgame Petition
okay....the vasuda-impact-scene is ready. 20 seconds total. with indeo 5.1 codec = 14 MB.

i would like to test to compress it as MVE-file. how can i do it? any converter out?

 
Re: Cutscene for Failure on Endgame Petition
SCP uses OGG cutscenes, you know. MVE conversion isn't necessary.

Here is a Filefront Mirror to save your bandwidth.  If you click the link you can just watch the movie at filefront without downloading anything.

If a man consults whether he is to fight, when he has the power in his own hands, it is certain that his opinion is against fighting.

OMG! That's Brilliant...

Hey Icey, for music, I recommend the Babylon 5 track "the Long, twilight Struggle."

the actual clip from the track i recommend is 03:29-04:49 (01:20).
It's the music from when the Centauri are bombarding the Narn Homeworld in that particular episode.
I've always immagined the Vasuda scene with that music

I can send you the music clip if you like. what's you're e-mail?

Re: Cutscene for Failure on Endgame Petition
Yeah, for example by being blown up by one of those pesky Lokis that are probably manufactured right on board the Hades during that mission.(Forever respawning Fighters are poor poor mission design. Shame on you  :v: )
And I suppose pilots are also manufactured? :D

You actually are downloading the same as if you saved it.

But you don't need the indeo codec installed to view on filefront.

It's an open-source video/audio format. Here is a shareware app that claims to convert AVI to OGG. If that doesn't work, then just to a Google search for "OGG AVI converter" or something.

Re: Cutscene for Failure on Endgame Petition
thanks everyone. im glad, that you like it....  :nod:

and also thanks for the help  :yes:

regarding the musik:
i will check it. i send you my mail-adress via personal message  :cool:


so this cut is final then. nothing more tweaking.....so i can concentrate on the other takes. i just modified the starfield, the sun as well as some bugs with lucy. had problems with the engine-fx alpha-maps. now i use visible lights for the thrusters. does not look 100% like the mvp-lucy, but its close....
