WIP UEF Trailer (UPDATED TO V2)

Postby biass » 04 Dec 2018, 06:14

I rail on people quite a lot for video related content, mostly because I believe that a new user is going to have next to no idea about what the fugg :DD is going on.

With a bit of inspiration from the song, i set out to make a short example of my own for both A: practice and B: to not look like empty words.

It's missing about half of the video from the end area because i cut some scenes. I and i plan to cut a few more tbh. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YqKveQF ... e=youtu.be v2 boys

I had to both A: Add the black bars and B: scale UP the footage to hide the UI elements, so if there is some hotkey to just turn it all off it would be great if you could tell me what that is. Also i dollied the camera along with my hands so, that's why it looks a lil jittery.

Regardless - Do tell me what you think.

edit: later versions will be in 1080p

I swear I heard this song over some Russian military training promotional video from the early 90s

Quite close, it's from Escape from Tarkov, which as far as i am concerned IS russian military training from the early 90s.

I think it's dope. the song is great but it's percussion early on clash with the voice. it makes it hard to tell what he's saying. perhaps another song would be better? maybe at least changing the volume of each?

regardless the energetic and techno feel of the song later off really works with images of supcom, so that's great.

making it have a more of the visual flares of cold-war and pre-cold war propaganda could work well with the UEF feel.

the dialogue is already 100% there so might as well embrace that whole aesthetic.

it could be overlayed transparent men and women in salute. hovering in the sky, or the uef faction logo in a flag that precedes the video and return at the end.

something overly nationalistic like that.

something like this :

most of the stuff here is too pro-revolution so not in the uef trend but you get the idea: https://www.shutterstock.com/search/propaganda
maybe more like this :

I can change the volume at the start yes, i had done it for the end so.

However i think not for the overlay, visual clarity is half of the point of this trailer. I do plan to put in some UEF related graphics at the end. and ads for what FAF offers in general.

But hey, thanks for letting me know what you think.

I'm posting this before i go to sleep but i have done another round of filming and have another proof of, ready to show you all.

Some clips are brand new, some clips have replaced others, and some will be gone the very second i start working on this again.
I have 2 clips that are on the chopping block and i challenge you to guess what they are before i cut them out.

I also lowered the volume of the music at the beginning and removed that god awful noire font. Thinking about putting a graphic or something there.

I also did a very nifty audio doctoring, if you can point out what i did, you uh, have a big brain or something. So i challenge you to find that too. HINT: it's in a NEW clip.

This might be handy...

Here's a little mod that boosts LODs of units and props, making them better looking in video even if you zoom out a bit (or shows them in the distance if you tilt the camera)

That's a pretty good mod, you should make a proper thread for it and pin it.

Not sure how much use i can get from it though, a lot of what i want to film still just become strange black rectangles despite the LOD, im already using T3 Mobile Arty as tanks in many of my scenes just because they appear more obvious that they're a tank.

Thanks anyway, ill see if it can help out when it comes to planes or something.
