Video idea (and suggestions wanted)
« on: May 03, 2008, 08:20:25 PM »
You probably know by now that I enjoy making videos out of games. Well I have an idea...

I'm sure most of you have seen the Where the hell is Matt? video, with the guy "dancing" in lots of different places all over the world. Well I was thinking about making a Tabula Rasa video using the same theme, with me /dancing at all the cool or beautiful places in TR. I'll crank up the graphics to max (or as close as possible), and the finished product should (hopefully) be able to show off lots of cool places, and what the TR graphic engine is really capable of. Because in all honesty, the graphics aren't all that shabby, are they?  :)

Imagine seeing this crazy demolitionist dude dancing next to an Eloh obelisk, infront of a water fall, on the trinity bridge in Plateau, on a battlefield, in lava, in a Forean village and so on.

Does it sound like a good idea?
If you think it does, you can help me out by suggesting places, objects, buildings etc that I should go visist and /dance at  :)

Definatly Eloh Vale, prettiest place in TR  :P

Not sure about anywhere else really except maybe the pretty bits of Pallisades.

Like the idea, would make a few vids myself (I did buy FRAPS) but always slows down when I record.

If you can, try the Eloh Bridge instance as well ;)
1) I reject your reality.... and substitute my own
2) Not to be used when upset... will void warranty
3) Stoke me a clipper i will be back for dinner
4) Never tell Gangrel to do anything... he will probably get it wrong
5) I have seen more intelligence from an NPC AI in TR beta, than from most MMO players.
6) BLOG ME!

Wasn't able to get out of the initial eloh chamber inside the Eloh bridge instance unfortunately.
Anyway, I've sorted through 7,5gb of raw, uncompressed fraps footage (almost 110 short clips), now all that's left is making the actual movie. Depending on the circumstances and my mood, that could take anything from a few days to a month or two :D
Yes, I'm really slow, but I have a habit of getting bored of stuff if I spend too much time on it.

I also have another 4,5gb of various TR related clips (some of it from the beta) that I plan to use for a second video  :P

I climb on most strange and far off places in TR maps. Sometimes the panoramic view from high places kicks ass.

Perhaps i can guide you to some far off places to ...film your videos there...

Find me as ASTRALON in game
I'm a fan of all seven deadly sins, but concerning NCsoft, i'll stick with WRATH! So will all of my 14 chars!

Should have updated that the video has been completed by the way.
1) I reject your reality.... and substitute my own
2) Not to be used when upset... will void warranty
3) Stoke me a clipper i will be back for dinner
4) Never tell Gangrel to do anything... he will probably get it wrong

I think we need a frontpage or something to notify people when stuff comes out.  ;)

Hmmm with the exception of the Announcement threads i dont think that there are ANY sections that you cannot post in... (well there are a couple of others such as "Stickies" but that is about it.
1) I reject your reality.... and substitute my own
2) Not to be used when upset... will void warranty
3) Stoke me a clipper i will be back for dinner
4) Never tell Gangrel to do anything... he will probably get it wrong
5) I have seen more intelligence from an NPC AI in TR beta, than from most MMO players.
