Project Xanthium \\ Reloaded - LQ Alternative Available Now!

Postby Niotex » Tue Feb 16, 2010 9:29 pm


Its been a while since I released something "serious". This is a "REMASTER" project that I started a couple of months back. The idea was to keep everything of the original intact while spicing up all the technical stuff. In the end I ended up doing a little more then that, but none the less that was the original idea.

For local HQ [h264/ac3 - mp4] I would highly recommend to NOT USE VLC but instead USE MPC for playback. If this still turns out choppy then I would recommend going for the direct LQ [xvid/mp3 - avi] version which is also up now.

For now enjoy and crank up those sound systems =]

I'm happy to finally see it released. I love how all the subtle things in this video make it feel a lot different from the original by making a lot of things just look visually interesting. Congrats on finishing it.

Also, Niotex for most improved :P

Ok, so here is what happened. One time, I ate this really great tasting hotdog. It was delicious, it had a tad of sweet spice, the flavours were well balanced. After I ate and enjoyed this hotdog I was put into a catatonic state and the partially digested hot dog was removed from my stomach. All of the bits of the hot dog I enjoyed are still intact but the chef decided that I should have had a better hot dog, despite me telling him how much I enjoyed the first one. The hot dog was peiced back together, it increased in volume, and more toppings were added. This hotdog did have some improvements made to it and I enjoy the taste much the same, but it's now been prepared in such a way that it has given me a great deal of problems during mastication. In the end, though I still enjoyed the increased hotdog the second time around it was still, essentially, the same hot dog. I think I might have liked a sandwhich instead.

2D DoF - The simple concept of attracting the focus of the eyes to a specific section of the screen by effectively creating a fake Depth of Field. This is something I have been experimenting with for a very long time now in my other unreleased projects.


Edit: Fucking awesome. Probably the only video I'll download this year too.

Holy crap! It's been years!

I'll check it out!

Edit: Dang! Wish it felt more like a remake instead of a remaster. I liked the original as you know a lot and I also thought the visual quality was good as well. The feeling from beginning to end felt great from the original but this with it's intro and outro, it didn't really feel as much of a rush to watch. But it's cool that you used the HD footage and made it 60 fps, but I don't think it needed it. One thing that makes the whole 60 fps work with Nostromo is that he is the king at panning. If the video has a crap load of panning, and it's one of the main features for your video, then the 60 fps adds a crazy new feel. It also works great for some sped up scenes. This is just my opinion. It's nice though adding a new color to the mix with this remaster so I approve. :up:
