Hi everybody! And thank you all for your inputs!
@ fifty3dragons: thank you soooo much for your time and patience to sit and write all those precious comments! We really appreciate your inputs and will surely work on the things you’ve pointed out, like the footsteps sound and the Frant looking too rigid (this last one is already under maintenence ehehhe).
When you hear the countdown, that’s only in english, the russian part is Mirsky remembering the orders he was given by a Russian general. But the subtitles will surely clearify these things.
The audio issues are strange, cause here we hear everything perfectly, as some other else has pointed out. But anyway we will lower the music a bit in those dialogue parts.
@ ittrium: thanks a lot! The particle effect is a previously rendered, heavily manipulated, fractal animation that we mapped onto a simple cylinder, and furter manipulated in comp.
The fractals have been generated with Fractal flames, a fantastic free piece of software able to create animated fractals. check this out: http://flam3.com/
It also works as a plugin for The Gimp.
@ Thaldir: LOL the picture you’ve described here made our day for sure! Thanks a bunch for your support! We’re going to insert subtitles for sure, that was already planned, but now we know it’s a must.
@ shearerludmil and Bethoven: thanks for your comments too! the music has beens completely writen start to end for this trailer from David, a member of our team. He plays in a band, has the passion for sound engineering, and of course has his own self made in-house (seriously) recording studio. Anyway I think he used some sample for the chorus.
@ zer05um : thanks a bunch for your contribution! We are already working on the Frant to fix his rigid look. Unfortunately we can’t afford revising that shot of mirsky from the tracking stage as this would mean re-track, re-render and re-comp everything. But anyway thanks again for pointing that out: we’ll fix it for our reel.
@ DMarkwick : man thanks for your comments! We would have loved having you in this team, you know? Everytime I take a look at your shot I’m amazed by the sense of immense scale you’ve been able to render. Full stop.:bowdown:
@ targus: thanks a lot to you too for taking the time to give input and constructive criticism. As already said the audio seems to be OK on our side, but we’re going to lower it a bit anyway cause this will broaden the chance to be perfectly heard anywhere.
