New FF Movie

Post by FF-Darkhalf » Mon Jan 27, 2014 12:34

Hey everyone,

while working on our Star Citizen Profile page I been thinking how good it would be to get an updated version of that old and beauty Flash movie we had back in 2002 made by Farrman.

So finally I gave it a try and with the help of Raven, Rachy & Odd here's the current version:

Movie Updated! Version 5.0
Old Version 4.0
Old Version 3.0

I tried to include some Medievil Total War but couldn't find descent footage so this is it for now.

There are a few things that might wanna get tweaked like the MWO/WT song for example but the main stuff should be in and seem to fit well.

What do you think, anything u would wanna have changed, any tipps etc. everything is welcome ;)

Current list of "subjects to polish":

- transition between intro and FS2 space (replace SC space pic by FS2 freeze space pic before the hecate jumping in) - DONE
- early FS2 footage replace big white surrounded Hecate jumping in
- transition between MW4 and EVE needs to be worked on - DONE
- transition between EVE & MWO needs to be worked on - DONE
- music of MWO & WT could be replaced - DONE
- MWO footage: similar screens + same map; possibly replacing some parts
- usage of main music theme is used twice and kinda long, but it serves quite well - DONE
- some vids have different settings / format (dunno if I can change that)
- text parts needs replacement, since some are outside of the videos
- text parts could be aligned better towards the music (intro mainly) - DONE mostly
- need a better logo (resolution wise) & optionally an over all polished up logo

Well you kept away from Requirem for a Dream song full marks for that. Been used on every bloody youtube video out there. What about this song? The track is named the same as our group. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJm6b-o2pTM :mrgreen:

Not fully getting it Tim :D "Requirem for a Dream" aka "Two Steps From Hell - Heart of Courage" being used too often in the net u saying ? U might be right. However I realized that using it twice is a bit too much of a overkill espescially since it's running longer into MW4 in the latest versions. Replaced the final sound and see if it's fine :)

Perhaps for the text, we could paraphrase a great quote. On example is from JFK:

In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger. We do not shrink from this responsibility - We welcome it.

Slightly updated the vid; text locations were kinda wrong before & changed the font.

Still not 100% satisfied with it; logo looks bit weak resolution wise.

Should be fine for now until further change :D

@ Hobbes: tested the quote (which is great) a while ago, but it didn t seem to fit in well somehow.

Just a thought, I like the idea behind it, but it's wordy

Oh wow so much copyright infringement.

I think you need to start emailing companies to ask permission to use the game media, as for the music.. good luck. :?

Quite like it mate.

You missed out a few games though. :-)

What about the amazing CS or DoD squads? And where's the footage of me bashing the crap out of you blue's in ESO? Lol...

Legally, I don't think you need to worry about the game footage, most companies are happy to get free advertising and they've even built video editors into the next-gen consoles so people can broadcast themselves playing games to the world. The music, James may well have a point.

Must add I'm not a lawyer though...

Getting game media usage is really easy, so is worth doing still, I've got it for all the graphics on Magnetar Dynamics.
