I'm really glad that my employer operates on flex-time. I'd be so fired otherwise for repeatedly showing up late to work this past month :P

Orwell and dj_ultima_the_great more or less wrote:Despite the source that was awesome. I'm curious, how much was pure footage, and how much was blender/effects?

A lot of the rapid-motion stuff and/or slightly more subtle footage alterations was either Blender or AE. AE was used where I couldn't really do what I wanted to do in a true 3D environment (yeah, as weird as that sounds...I blame me for being too weak to adhere to my open-source-tools-only zealotry when faced with a deadline.) Most of the slower, more fleshed-out motion was present in the sources, with the exception of the "...surrender" Earth scene, which was Blender and 2D footage, and the spinning wireframe globe, which was inspired by a similar scene in Pale Cocoon.

Most of the transitions between the two anime were also done with Blender, AE, or both. The opening sequence, in particular, is a mixture of stylistic elements from Pale Cocoon and the ending sequence of Freedom 1, reversed and heavily time-remapped.

(shameless plug: If you're going to ACen, and you're interested in more information, drop by the 3D AMV panel that ZephyrStar and I will do -- I'll explain and demo the techniques behind the camera / other 3D junk I did. Compared to what ZS is doing, it's actually very simple stuff :) )

The real accolades here, of course, need to go to Yasuhiro Yoshiura, for Pale Cocoon, and the Freedom Committee. They've done CG far beyond what I'm currently capable of, and any awesome motion work in this video is theirs, not mine.

.....though it did bring a good amount of hope into it.

Yeah, I figure someone's bound to be disappointed by the title :P

Thanks :)

As uncharacteristic and weird as this might sound -- I think I actually hit a point where I was reasonably happy with the video, and the implementation of the concept. (I probably wouldn't have bothered to release it otherwise :P )

I can still see a lot of problems, but those are just things to address next time, I suppose.

Transition between 1:34 - 1:35 was kinda rough. Like Ultima said, I thought the ending was really anti climactic. Not much you can do about it though since it's the song.

Overall that was really awesome. 9.5/10
"The people cannot be [...] always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to [...] the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to public liberty. What country can preserve its liberties, if it's rulers are not warned [...] that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants."-Thomas Jefferson

You already know how much ass I think this video kicks. So glad to finally see it in high res, and finished. This video is pure awesome; sick 3D motion, (mostly) great pacing, and an original concept that wraps up nicely by the end. If this is competing in drama at ACen I'm screwed (not that my video has a chance anyway >_>) :P

5/5 :up:

Very, very cool. I think I understand your description - and we can all deal with a small dose of pretension in a while, so it's all good. :P

Yay, the first Freedom Video. But let me guess you only used 2 Eps, since the rest is not out yet. I'm really tempting to see the rest of the OVA. Btw. The concept of the video is pretty old now (Pale Cocoon + Random) but it works fine again here. I like the flow and the music, everything about this video rocks. :)

Very nice. You were right, it ties together very well after you see the concept as a whole. The imagery rocks and I really wanna see this on the big screen at acen.

omg omg omg


I really think you did a great job...I was simply amazed at your progress after showing some of the initial betas...this turned out really nicely. gg.


How the hell do you pronounce that? I guess like it looks... |:>

Nicely done, although there were some slow parts, overall the video was quite fast and enjoyable.

Oh, awesome use of 3D, man. I was just getting confused by the storyline at the end, and I'm actually gonna put a spoiler here because the way the story fleshes out is so great, and I wouldn't want to ruin it for anybody.

[spoiler]They're looking at each other from different planets, but none of the two is on earth, right? Or is Pale Cocoon guy supposed to be on Earth? I couldn't buy it, having seen the anime. Maybe they're both looking at Earth, although that would make the story less strong in my eyes.

While we're in spoilers, let me say I got chills at moon man's euphoric sprint near the end there. Instant classic.[/spoiler]
In any case, just awesome stuff :up:
