That is some very nice video editing! Also the last part with the logo is great... you should make that available for official videos Wink

That was awesome! In the full video, make sure you don't get carried away with slow motion and overdo it though - fast paced action is the most fun. Slow motion is great when you don't really understand what happened and a replay would help.

Also yeah, the ending logo animation looked cool! How'd you make it?

Why so sarcastic, cortez? What about CitonoX Reactivation? Wink Srsly, ZeroQL: you didn't fullfill me with your trailer, but I enjoyed watching it. Just expecting more from the guy with experience like you. I won't send you my frags cause I don't have a lot that could live up to your expectations, But I think Fisume, Kojn, PCLizard you and Mirio is already quite a lot. How long your video's gonna be>? Is there anything I can help you with? I can come up with some usefull ideas when it comes to editing but I can't make them by myself cause now I don't have much time. GOOD LUCK with your movie.

I think he just made this very quickly Justin so thats why, so some of the CAMs are pretty good imo considering how quick he put it together. I am expecting a lot better final production value for the final video from him, color correction, music etc Smile

Trailer looks sweet. But it would be better, imo, without hakked effects.

I don't see how it's 'hakked' effects, it's just changing the nex colour and making the mortar trail easier to see. Also there's nothing to say it's cheating, because it really isn't. In normal video's it is really really hard to see at full-detail. I really don't see what's wrong with it, except obviously for it not being standard if people think Xonotic looks like that as Vanilla, but look at other FPS game movies out there like, QW,Q2,Q3 etc, and how often the effects are different from vanilla.

It is "hakked" since it is using modified data - this is not something you can achieve by tweaking the games settings. It is as unfair advantage because, as you say kojn, its easier to see. As such is easily defined as cheating, if used in game (and i certainly do hope you don't). That's not my point tough, its rather that i would like see it recorded the way it looks in game - if those effects don't do on video its likely we need to change them in game too. As for how much other games fail, i could not care less Wink

Do not take this to serious, its just some random tough's on my part.

Anyways - zeroql, looking forward to watching this regardless of how you choose to render it, what i saw so far was enjoyable. Keep it up!

This is what I see above as a youtube preview:

[Image: axakkodj7lrmfoa3jo6.png]

And when I try to replay it I get a message that youtube cannot play it in my country due to licensing issues with the music. Sad

But apparently I make a splendid victim again, nice that I make it into the video. Must be because I'm good for decorations Big Grin

I'll try to find some interesting frags too myself, but I hardly do frags, and even if I do they're not spectacular and even if they are I forget about them and never find them again. So don't wait for me...

Edit: oh lol you posted a mediafire download too. Well never mind me, I'm just here for decorations.

Another edit: good ideas in the video, I like especially the last closeup through the shotgun scope - would be cool if you had an opponent behind the scope. But the idea of fading from scope closeup into the final logo screen is very nice.

I would also recommend to use vanilla projectile trails and in general vanilla effects IF you intend to make it a promotion video. Because if anyone sees this video and then enters into the game it would be a great surprise if the game looks different than its promotion. Also inclode the post-processing effects if you pick up strength, imho those look really badass.

For a similar reason I'd also recommend to use official maps only, there ARE quite nice official maps around, so for promotion we shouldn't promote stuff the user won't get unless downloading extra content that doesn't "ship" with the game.

Now if you could use music for the video that you got the license to use for this purpose (i.e. within a promotion video for Xonotic), that would be absolutely awesome, as then we could post it on our front page if it's done - which would be the best promotion effect ever. We already had an awesome trailer made by fisume with lots of very cool ideas and a great music, which couldn't be published on the Xonotic front page due to licensing issues, which personally makes me rather sad due to all the nice ideas and work put into it. Please don't let that happen to your promotion video, if you can avoid it. So the most important thing imho would be to use a music score that you can acquire the proper licenses for. It might be even worth just asking the artists directly, if it's a small label, maybe they give you a world-wide, irrevocable license to publish the video with the music score if you ask nicely and if you put their name into the vid as credits. COULD BE, I won't bet on it, but asking is for free Smile In case they handle their licensing through a collecting society like the German GEMA, chances are pretty low you will get a free license though.

For the name, some brain storming:
  • Xonotic Unleashed
  • Rising from the Ashes: Xonotic
  • Levelup (though this might require some scenes from Nexuiz)
  • WTF OMG AUSTOM (ok brainstorm is over here)

Ok I go through some demos tonight or this week, stay tuned and keep up the good work!

I also hope he will pick an youtube friendly soundtrack for the final release.Would suck if half of the interested people couldnt watch it without using proxys Big Grin

Guys, zeroql is working on a community frag movie, not an official trailer for the game. I'd agree about using youtube friendly music so it's not blocked in most countries, but otherwise it's a bit pointless to suggest things like using official maps and such, that's not why he posted this promo video here. It's a sample of what he can do, the point is to motivate players to send him frags so he has enough content to make the real video.

I think it is safe to say that no one wants to unnecessarily limit anything that ZeroQL is doing. At the same time, if we didn't mention the constraints for getting it on our own website I feel like we'd be missing an opportunity. It's better to be completely transparent from the get-go so that no one's expectations differ from what we can do in reality. In other words if he WANTS it to be on the main website then there are certain hard limits (music) and soft limits (effects/fonts) that we should talk about. If not, carry on! We'll all enjoy the video regardless of which path he takes.

Agree to Antibody's post to full extent. I was possibly mistaken by the term "promo video", assumed it was intended as some official promotion.
