    Don’t worry Equilerex is more than skilled at this sort of stuff…so much of the new beautiful art at Mutants Rising was supplied by his hands. :wink:

    I'm not trying to put this down, but does it seem to anyone else that these fan made movies never get the clothes right? Torn up new jeans don't really do it for me. The rest is cool though, maybe the explosion a little weird

    fixed up the video so im actually happy with it now... much smoother, shorter and more refined, just waiting on the voiceover so i can reupload it ^^ (probably sometime tomorrow or so)

    @bog yeah, i know the feeling but post apoc pants are hard to come by :ugly: , didnt have leather ones, the blue worker pants were too small and since my budget was $0 i just tore up old jeans, tried to rub some dirt on them but it didnt stay on for the whole hour :lol: luckily theire not seen much in the mess of color for most of the clip

    Sorry, I'm at work, haha. My bosses would probably think its weird if I busted into my "war, war never changes" voice. I'll definitely have the voiceover over to Equilerex tonight.

    Expect good things soon.

    I liked it. Impressive blood effect. I had no idea MR was working on stuff like this besides the game mod too.

    I like the post-apoc look despite the greenery, the action scene looks pretty cool, even though you've chosen a few really strange viewpoints. Only the first shot of the explosion looked convincing, the rest weren't good enough, as others said.

    I'd also like to say, that I totally disagree with the editing - the rhythm was completely off. I also had issues with the color correction - the color temp changes mid-sentence. The sound could use some more work - the sound effect of the engine stopped abruptly, there was no atmosphere to fill in the gaps and the sound effects had different volume and quality.

    Before others bash me into pieces - criticism is essential if you want to evolve.

    waiting patiently ^^

    MR's not, but since one certain member was making a movie, he thought he might tie it with MR :lol:

    thanks, CC is definitely useful. where did you notice the color temp change tho? havent noticed and the source footage should have the same correction throughout the clip (there might be a bit of exposure flicker though since its taken up with a mirror camera but i think that adds to the roughness) as for the rithm, agreed, sent yoou the reworked clip to see if its any better ;)
    sound's as it is, evened it out a bit on the new one but still havent put much time into it :lol:

    Looks like some hollywood movie satire. Quite a dumb movie.

    There are lots of people out there who can better with less money.

    Nice editing, it's become a lot better with being shorter, more compressed. The voice over ain't perfect but it's a gigantic leap forward when compared to the first voice over. And the explosion works better now, it's like only the hood is burning and that works.

    GREAT STUFF, equilerex. Especially when considering your time/budget/experience.

    here ya go public

    think il also up to youtube at some point.

    well, thanks guys, glad the edit worked out :)

    the voiceover was pretty good but i butchered it quite a bit to fit it in the way i wanted (the part with the radio got a pretty bad transition and the background sound is a bit high in places.. )

    @Nexuiz hehe, the joke would have worked if you had a reputation of oh, lets say continuum :ugly:

    For those too lazy to look up the work thread, heres some goodies:

    Okay let's see.

    Seen the previous version. The sound effects were very bad.
    But now take a look at the new version.

    It sounds better, goes better.

    I think the voice over sometimes sounds gay and cheezy. No offence, it's an improvement.

    Liked the part in the previous version, where the other dude starts sneaking on the main guy, quickly. It could have been a cool scene if done right. Here when you have the voice over while seeing what's the other sees, makes it kinda weird. Not a good direction IMO.
    The viewer needs to be aware of who's talking. Here is a bit confusing.

    The blood scene is awesome.

    The explosion part is bad, mainly because of the sound (which is mainly non-existent).

    The part where he opens the trunk would be a great one if it was done a bit differently. The sound you put there is like when opening a can of beer. Good shots but not used the way I would (which would make it a bit better IMO).

    Another thing is, when he starts the green thingy in the car, it cuts a bit too quick and you can't hear what the narrator is saying (the sound is too loud).

    Keep on going, you'll get there :)

    Thanks for putting me in the end creadits. A little, bright tear came out of my eye...

    thanks for the feedback... the explosion sound is a good tip, would have edited if if i had known...

    sneaking i had to cut short since it was as long as the rest of the clip and didnt fit with the overall pace (and the filming sucks but thats a whole other story)

    the green cut- i like it, narrator getting lost in the background- happens in many places but the source for the sound edit had all the sounds merged so couldnt do much.

    as for the clunky rustbucket sound, that is actually the original noise from the camera :ugly: (reality suxors :lol: )

    and clad to have you there.. the track was a great fit!
    what did you need veoh btw if you dont mind me asking?
