Well it is time for a break from all of the modeling and particle effects stuff. The final part of Terraforming a Moon will have to wait a bit. For now I need to deal with a number of things that kind of piled up.
One of the things I have been meaning to do is get some videos produced, since there is a bit of interest in such things. So I started recording relatively simple footage of the buildings and machines that have been built so far. And wow, full quality 720p video recorded using Fraps ate my hard drives for lunch, and then asked for dessert. The bulk of the video I recorded was awful though... it looked like i was having some crazy convulsions or something when i was trying to control the camera. *Sigh*...
So I got about half of my videos edited, and then realized I had not made arrangements for the background music. Luckily my musician was able to fix up some tracks fairly quickly. I also reused the track originally destined to be a loading / character select background, and I also found one of my own original creations to use. Actually, it was the fact I was trying to use my own composition that fueled my musician's motivation to give me songs that don't suck....
Anyway, the first eight videos are up... please forgive the camera work and production, I am not trying to win an academy award or anything here! Just showing off some prototypes.
Extra points if you can figure out which of the background audio tracks was mine!
I am going to try to get the rest of the videos made and the encyclopedia up to date before finishing off the Terraforming a Moon series.
Till next time,
the Undead Dev
