Re: The New Earth Defense
Hrm, the trailer turned out pretty good!

I do think it would have worked a little better if the narration was synced up with the scenes it was written for, but from what I can see that would have been difficult, so props to the editor for putting together a fairly coherent piece even if the visuals lagged the audio.

And as always good music by DaddyWarhol.

Shiv, you need to credit the trailer voice actress. Bad form to miss that.

Re: The New Earth Defense
No change from what I said on IRC, it felt really cheesy to me at some parts, especially all that ??? with the who was that random Vasudan fella from out of nowhere (then again I can't do any better :nervous:) and I couldn't catch the narration either, not even the music; though part of the reason was to do with me needing to put the computer on mute.

Was I listening to a pilot, or a newscaster?

Otherwise, well... it's nice overall! That GTVA animation at the beginning btw is really cool, that is something I really wish I could pull off (although I do think the "bling" animations could be made better with more variation in the movement instead of simply repeating the frame loop twice/thrice or whatever you call it; ultra tiny nitpick, I know. sorry. XD).

Re: The New Earth Defense
I do agree that it would have been really strengthened if the script was matched up with the visuals.

Frankly I feel that this thing was pushed out the door a little bit unfinished.

Re: The New Earth Defense
Rewatching bits of it... the music from 1:45 or 1:56 onwards would make a good Brief4 substitute methinks? Anyone?

(watching the vimeo one if that matters for the timing)

Re: The New Earth Defense
You know given how eagerly you people gobble up new models and such I expect a release sometime in 2135 when you've finally dealt with the feature creep. :P

Re: The New Earth Defense
I think you have a misunderstanding of how feature creep works. ED has quite a few development roadblocks but feature creep isn't one of them.

That trailer is damn awesome
I was excepting just some Gameplay Video, but this really looks like a proffessional trailer.

..... and yeah, those blue stuff are damn cool too.

I've worked with aldo on occasion. I know exactly how model/texture feature creep works. :P

Is it possible to have a transcript of the speech ? It's quite hard to catch everything that is said for the non-native English speaker of us :)
Sorry for the self-quote, but I'd really like to have an answer to this - even if it's just a no, although I'd rather like a yes :)

Looks nice, but the female voice over should be touched up, you barely can understand what the lady was talking about.

Yeah, but the ED modpack has been more or less frozen for a while.

Re: The New Earth Defense
This is the original script I wrote. The first two lines apparently got cut, but the rest is the same:

Quote


00:07: Twenty-one years ago, we survived the Shivan apocalypse.

00:12: We rebuilt. New homes for the displaced. New graves for the dead.

00:24: Terran, Vasudan, it doesn't matter. We patch up our wounds. And when we're done...

00:35: We start killing each other again.

00:41: We should've seen it coming. Read the signs. Twenty years of strife and suddenly it happens: Vasudan civil war.

00:55: Brother against brother. Mihos, the youngest, the usurper. Khonsu III, the emperor without a throne.

1:19: It's a [goddamn] bloodbath out there.

1:43: But the insurgency is a sideshow. The gate to Earth is about to open. We don't know what we'll find. They could be waiting for us with open arms, or open gunports.

[pause]

There's something going down in the Security Council. Something very deep, and very quiet. They tell us we'll be informed on a need-to-know basis.

[pause]

I'm afraid that by the time we need to know it's already going to be too late.
