The Final Video for the Pack

Postby Fusion » Thu Nov 23, 2006 2:26 am

The last and my personal favorite of all my BFI Conversion videos is out:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fsVnHsjLZe4

Youtube murdered the quallity, IMO, but it's still good. I'm going to upload it as a (Bootleg :p)DVD quallity download somewhere tomorrow. Post comments here and on Youtube :D.

Edit: Considering when I posted, I could have waited until Friday to upload :lol:

Edit2: This is the revised version, I couldn't use all of the video footage because of Youtube's 5 minute limit, so here it is with effects and titles:

Personally, I liked the other one better because it showed the different game modes (seeing what the pack had to offer finally pushed me to downloading the beta). This one just follows around a bunch of units. Yes, I'm glad to see that there are Greivous bodyguards with electrostaffs, but I don't need to watch one for half a minute to realize that. Also, there was a lot of panning scenes of BF1 maps. The name of the pack lets me know there are BF1 maps in it, and I think you emphasized it a bit too much in the video.

In other words, I feel this one:
-"Follows a character" for too long
-Doesn't advertise the new modes
-Has too much panning

On the other hand, I'm glad that it:
-Includes more with the original BF1 maps
-Shows the Grevious Bodyguard
-Has a cooler soundtrack

I had to show off Citadel in less than a minute, so the fastest way to do that without using a hero (which I saved for Harbor) was with a Magnaguard. I got shots of inside and outside, considering Freecam really tends to glitch up on that map and the halls would be much to small to go through without showing the area behind the buildings that you get to by wallhacking. I mentioned before, this would be showcasing the units and the maps themselves, also so I don't get a bunch of "OMGSZ yuo just recorded BF1 maps in BF1 and teh space maps in BF2, yuo r a liar!" so I needed some more of the newer units.

I understand and I imagine I'd probably make the same decisions as you if I were to make the movie. I was just stating how I liked how the last one said stuff like "Felucia Hunt!" "Space Muunlist" "Coruscant Streets" and stuff like that.

The Video is not bad.
In many Things I`m with Thunderforge.You are following the Character to long.That makes the Movie a little bit boring.The Beginning of the Rhen Var Harbor Scene is very good.You are showing the Area,the Hero and Action.Then you should make a Cut.Then the Next Battlefield and so on.

Your Intro is great---) Introducing most of the Battlefields

For me it`s not important to see a complete Map in the Movie.It would be better to Show all Units specially the Republic Commando and the New Heroes in short Action Scenes.The Battlefields should be mixed. Present the new Game Modes more.

Did you watch the Mos Venur Movie.It´s very long but represents perfect the Map.
If not you should watch it.

I only watched your You Tube Movie.The Filefront One is on the Way.

You did a great job Fusion. But I agree with the others. It needs more of the new units. I think the rebel special unit and storm commando.

A little off topic but... Was the music you used Enya? :P

Nope, it was One Winged Angel (theme of Sephiroth) from Final Fantasy 7.

:P Cool. Heh, I'm gonna also agree with Thunderforge. Too much following the character. Maybe instead of following the same character through the whole map, you could've switched through the characters a bit. But, I do understand that it's quite difficult to create a SWBF2 movie, so it's very good! :)

everyone wrote:following the character

*explode*
That's the last time I listen to my friends :P

I have a feeling this won't be my last video. I'm going to check with Teancum about a certain super special awsesome secret map ( :lol: ) and see if we can reveal it in a more, "theatrical" way. I also made a non-pack related video to try to get off of the "Character Following" just to try to get my old style back.

Thanks. I've now officially created the big reveal for the <insert helper words here> secret map. It came out well, just waiting for Teancum to get back and to tell me when I should upload it :D


...and for the last time people, I'm not going to tell you what it is :lol:

Gahhh, im getting sick of the fantastical classical. (hey that rhymes! :D )
For the next soundtrack, could you use some rock music? It doesnt have to be loud AC/DC or something like that, but a "Fantasy Rock", like Bal-Sagoth or DragonForce...

Finally saw the vid. Pretty nice. Way to showcase the new units :P

My only complaint is that it spent a pretty long time on each map making the video sortof drag in spots.
