Starscape Trailer
Been wanting to do this for ages, and finally got round to editing together a Starscape trailer:



One thing I always seem to do when editing these videos is to block out the timing for the music. You could probably do this more easily with markers, but I always find solid colour blocks to be easiest to mess around with and provide equally accurate edges to snap to. Second track from the bottom has the blocking in it.

Trailer Timing

I had a lot of fun making the trailer - I always forget how much I love playing Starscape, and every time I do it makes me wish we had a few months to work on some more of the features we've talked about. It's a shame there isn't a business model that works like MMORPGs but for single player games. The thing I really love about MMORPGs is that if all things go well, you cn continually update your game. Imagine if the same thing were possible for single player games. How good could Starscape be given several years more development? Imagine a single player game you could keep revisiting like an MMORPG and the experience just keeps getting richer. Smile

Are some of the effects new? I don't remember the robot whizzing past behind JJ, or the Aegis dying like that (and I get the Aegis killed a lot Smile)

No, that's all pure 1.5c. The Aegis explosion did go in late in 1.5c though and the JJ scene is much sped up of course.

That is one quality trailer. Smile

It's Sony Vegas. I used to be a speed razor fan, but when in-sync went bust a lot of other artists recommended Vegas. It's not dead cheap (around 350 if you shop around) but it would probably cost me more in time to learn something else these days Smile

We've been doing lots of boring business type stuff (yawn) and sorting out all new tools and engine bits. New game is on the way now though.
