Ok, the pictutres are late... I needed to host a lot of pics with less, but my other host only provided 5 MBs a day, but now, I have a new host (thanks to TfighterPilote)

 

 

A reskin of Cortez: http://img22.exs.cx/img22/4357/Redemption.jpg

I added a yellow tint to his eyes (you know in KOTOR if you start turning evil, Revan's eyes start turning yellow) I figured Id do something like that with this guy. Youll see a dramatic change in Cortez as the movie nears its end.

 

Ok, tell me ways to increase the quality of these pics: (please, read the post above for the reason)

(I resized the rest, so they are small)

Ok, besides the lack of light, floating consoles, and missing textures (shader problem) what can I do to make this more cinematic, more star wars like. The city area is coruscant.

 

 

 

My plan is to start with the spy jumping out the ship (already scripted) a tie flies by, he already knows he is being tracked by the imps, and he runs into a near by building (that very large one behind all the walking people/aliens) The other shots are of that building. Im going to add light sources on the ceiling, and of course, actual lighting, and make the consoles sit on the floor.

 

Im going to make more grander coruscant areas showing the imperials landing and basically taking control of that sector of coruscant. This shows how important the information is that the spy stole. Stormtroopers will be marching through the streets, and even capturing and shooting civilians at will.

 

Of course, this is a little extreme just to find one spy, so there wont be a huge number of imperials, and they quickly pull out, you will see that later on, once the task at hand is done. Cortez accepts no failure.

My main suggestion is to have a little play with the texturing and lighting in those last 3 pics - the colours seem a bit too random (not that it's colourful as such, but hopefully you get what I mean), and the base texture you've used doesn't look good with the rest of it. Try using similar textures for the rooms, and then use coloured lighting to make it even more interesting. :)

Hmmm, I dont really like that area too much, now that I think about it. Im going to delete it and add on to it. Most of the time when you redo something it looks better than the original. Ive got some new ideas for it.

 

I guess by the base texture you mean the wall texture?

 

Hmm, Im going to check out that imperial base level in Single Player (t2_depred?) where the guy takes your saber. Ill use that as a reference.

Ok, I ripped those up, and remade it... almost. Heres the main room:

http://img48.exs.cx/img48/3594/shot7.jpg

 

but.. WHY IS IT SO DARK? I upped the brightness, and it looked just fine in game, even before I upped it, but its still dark. I upped it a lot. Anyways, I used some Byss, Kejim, Imperial, and Vjun textures for this, I had a little colored light over near the consoles, but not a whole lot.

Thanks for your offer, but I dont need anymore skins. Im trying to keep the file size low, but have as much stuff in it as I can get. Considering the movie is staying in Jedi Academy (Im not recording it) anyone can download and install hapslashes models, and they work just fine in this movie. Ive got the models installed myself :)

Thanks! But heres the thing, I dont have any animating software, as of yet. N3G1@ has volunteered to animate for me.

 

If I want to animate, Ill have to wait for Wudan's Dragon.

 

Anyways, I got some pics (im not sure if I posted these here yet or not..)

Circles? Can you explain? I never made a full circle... It had some curved movements.. kind of.

 

Anyways, I use the usual programs:

 

GTK Radiant

 

BehavEd (Comes with the MP SDK)

 

I use q3map2toolz, because I think its more convienient.

 

I used FRAPS to record the trailer.

 

Yeah, i was talking about the curved movements... They could make some1 dizzy :D

Just kiddin

 

Thanks!!!

Hard to say. BE tried first this software to record my serpent logo video, but the result was very poor compared to the FRAPS recording he did afterwards. The quality was inferior by miles. Of course he had scarce experience of the program since it was the first time he tried it, but if I remember correctly, he mentioned it didn't mention supporting JA right away.

Ive tried it before... It wouldnt work. Its most likley my PC... I know Ive set it up right. I got a spider-man game working with it. You see, when I load it in JA the interface doesnt "appear" like it does with spider-man. I think its because GameCam uses OpenGL, and JA is mainly an OpenGL application :( I think only really good cards can use it, which mine isnt.

 

It does seem to be a "more well put together" application, when compared to FRAPS (considering... this one looks better and has other stuff...) not to mention you have to compress the FRAPS video a LOT! My trailer alone was over a gig.

It's only good if FRAPS produces uncompressed data. It allows you to choose freely the level of compression you want, afterwards, with no extra loss of quality. And if you want to edit the video in After Effects or some other program, it's absolutely better to have raw material instead of some precompressed, lower quality stuff.

If you want Luke, I could use the stuff you use for the file in order to play out the movie and make a video out of it. I did so for Kengo, and I have been working on Stargate SG-1 Music videos for the past few months and people have been impressed with my work, so I offer my services for doing that. Just check out Team Corellia Part 1 & 2 the WMV versions for my work.
