Edit: Got it it to workhttp://jeffrey-chuang.com/
Im redoing some renderings, and am going back into sequences.
I intend to get rid of confusing cuts and get the video to be cleaner.
need to change:
-Text needs to be enlarged due to viewing size
-Some pictures need more screen time.
-Some fades too abrupt
I poked around in the images directory. Linking directly to http://rhkstudios.iseenothing.com/images/demoflv.swf seems to work.
And maybe changing that 'images/demoreel3' to 'images/demoreel3.flv'?
edit: gah i need to increase font size. hard to read. tired. will fix later. Does anybody know of some good encoders? im gettin artifacts all over.
Again, I've pretty much abandoned encoding my own stuff when I can just upload a pretty decent quality video to Vimeo and they worry about all that stuff for me.
DOn't think can.
Your question gets answered and when you're all ready for delivery, you create a thread if you want crits.
I like your designs though.
I know the rules! I've been on this forum for 5 years!
I don't think we need to be so anally rententive about the forum rules, there's plenty to art-crit on that as a reel (font, pacing, music) and it's not exactly like Prox is some douche off the street doing a hit and run.
Personally Prox, I like it, but the res is agonisingly low, which in turn is making that font even worse. Additionally that retro 80's computer font has always sucked ass.
I'd also agree that the resolution is waaay too low. I'd make a slightly higher-rez version, and a high-rez version...and offer a choice. I've heard that having two versions with different resolutions is a pretty popular option, and for good reason.
I also feel like some of the camera movements are a little too fast to really appreciate everything...especially during the run-through of the tower. It seems to speed through at moments.
You see, I think Prox should be especially held to the rules because of the fact that he's a forum regular. He knows the rules and even more than the rules thread, the behavior of the regulars is what dictates the acceptable norms of the forum.
You really want to come in here and bust a newb's ass and he breaks out the "but prox did it" card? Fuck that noise.
Am I doing it right?
No matter what the other forumers say, you're my favorite.
I fixed some of the camera movements. as for the resolution, I haven't found a way to get the compression working well. The straight AVI file is something like 256 megs. I need to find a good free encoder.
The file i render out in is pretty smooth. Im doing it at 720 x 360.
The problem is the flash player and FLV compression.
And yes I seriously did put that there. This was developed specifically for blizzard. It is my geek badge of honor. I've played the game for 5 years including the beta. I really want to get on that team and be a part of making something I really enjoy, despite the critics out there.
Mustang: you are right. it is hard to read at the rez I am making it at. I need to use a better font. Computer font is hard to read.
I didn't bother reading any of it cuz of the font. The music was cool though, what is it?
Unless they want just another mindless modeler or something.
Being able to follow art direction is key, and I wanted to highlight that. Also my teacher who works there has been coaching me. What did he say was most valuable: Someone they could just plug in and get to work right away.
~Edit: This is purdie from the now dead CA vent, how goes it madame le Prox?
FLV is not cutting it.
Found out how to embbed quicktime.
