Re: Vasuda-Toasting-Cutscene / FINAL-Release
@ lars
i think you mix up there shomething. phong shading has nothing to do with anisotropic mapping:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phong_shading

it describes how to interpolate specular highlights over polygon-edges so that they look round....unfortunately it can happen that real reflections are not smoothed so you can have sharp edges like on the low-poly-lucy in the shot where the scorpions are starting, below the superlaser. i tried to put lucy into a hypernurb, but the model does not allow that. i got poly-salat......
ever tryed to go to functions -> optimise points? works quite nicely with FS2 ships.

Re: Vasuda-Toasting-Cutscene / FINAL-Release
optimizing points is just for combining points if you have combines independent parts of a model to one part and points does not fit 100% together. then they are merged.....

regarding the city shape, we do not have any reference for vasudan style of buildings ;) you always have to keep in mind, that a building must be effective and the most effective shape for a building is not round....its like a cube. i think there are no big defferences in the architectural shape from this distance. btw: what we see is only the city centre with the highest buildings.....the camera looks above a small "hill" so you only see the highest.... ;)

Re: Vasuda-Toasting-Cutscene / FINAL-Release
Yeah, I doubt that method of conversion will work.  It certainly won't work in FSO.  What you need to do is compress the original cutscene to OGG format.  This means the video has to be OGG Theora and the audio has to be OGG Vorbis.

hi goo

i tried to convert from the original, uncompressed file with vlc-player to theo and vorbis in an ogg-container. conversion was done nice, but fs2 is still not playing the movie. same error message....avi still works....

strange everything....

Re: Vasuda-Toasting-Cutscene / FINAL-Release
Ancients4 currently comes before sm3-01a, since that's when Vasuda is destroyed.  If IceyJones's cutscene is added, then Ancients4 should come before sm2-10a (when the Galatea is destroyed) and Vasuda should come before sm3-01a.

Thanks Goober.

Changes made. Grab the updated vp from my original post: here



OTOH IceyJones:
  • Do not hesitate to pick the vp and make it yours so you can make a "complete" release. If you build a whole vp remember that vasuda.ogg should go in data\movies\.
  • Please convert your cutscene to ogg ASAP. Avi support is going to be dropped in future FS2_open builds. And reconverting to ogg from an already compressed avi is just a bad idea. I suppose we will have much better quality if you compress it from your original uncompressed video file. Try ffmpeg2theora utility.
IF YOU HAVE TROUBLES WITH FS2:
  • Please, please, please, READ and UNDERSTAND the sticky threads in FreeSpace & FreeSpace Open Support board.
    A lot of people are willing to help you, but, as anyone can understand, seeing the very same "issues" repeated again and again can become quite depressing. Please, spend a bit of time trying to solve the issue by yourself.
    (Lobo deserves a monument).
  • Then, if you aren't still able to solve your issue, feel free to ask for help in that same board.
    FYI, most of the troubles are caused by wrong mod installations which lead to either missing data or undesired cross-effects between them. Always follow the mod installation instructions and keep a clean FS2 installation as explained in the sticky threads. Two additional links about how the game handles game data:
  • If you think that you've discovered a bug, mantis it.
    Provide as much info as you can, and try to narrow it down. A lonely "FS2 doesn't work" is not a good report.

Re: Vasuda-Toasting-Cutscene / FINAL-Release
i will convert is asap of course. first of all i will make the slight changes in the movie itself. nevertheless i have the above mentioned problem.....:(
maybe i can upload the uncompressed video somewhere so that a pro in converting to ogg could do it......?! but it is 3,8 GB big  :wtf:

goober will be happy to hear that i canned one city shot and put them to the first where the ships are fleeing. so its one longer scene.
furthermore i play the long strafing along lucy slower, so that there are no more framedroppes on my PC.....they are just gone now :)

btw: i planned to make some kind of detail shot of vasudans fleeing from the city to the transports but canned it as there is no vasudan-mesh available......but now i saw THIS:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k7lL3ymasbA&feature=related

i contacted the author....maybe i get a mesh....lets see

Re: Vasuda-Toasting-Cutscene / FINAL-Release
Heh, AFAIK that's a secret video thing made by [v] and put on the silent threat discs along with a few other oddities. So it's basically the original vasudan mesh rather than one made by any FS fan. :(

Bobboau did make a complete and released vasudan mesh a long while back, but it was quite low poly from what I can remember. Beyond the one Goob linked to, I've only seen a low poly pilot version Aldo made.

hello all, especially the admins

as it seems that there is some confusion regarding codecs and so on, it would be great if the admins could define a "standard" for cutscenes. means:

- video codec, vid format and bitrate
- audi codec, bitrate

as well as naming freeware-tools incl. description how to convert uncompressed original files.

would help a lot to avoid actual confusion and conflicts. i.e. my created ogg files have audio problems (overamplifying)...

furthermore i still have no answer on my ogg-implementing problems in fs. they are just not playing!

thanks
icey

Re: Vasuda-Toasting-Cutscene / FINAL-Release
optimizing points is just for combining points if you have combines independent parts of a model to one part and points does not fit 100% together. then they are merged.....
are you sure? it worked for me, since all the faces in models when they're converted from pof to any other 3D format are completely disconnected. optimise points worked with me always. could you just send the model to [email protected] ?

i wanna see if its something else than that.

as for other objects on the ship... sured doesnt do that for me. after booleans, optimise points just ****s it up even more. sad, sad.

A quote to myself  :lol:

Using your avi release as a excuse I'm replaying FS1 campaign and I can confirm that avi support HAS BEEN ALREADY DROPPED in 3.6.10 beta builds (at least Taylor's Xt1207). So avi isn't a valid format any more.
