I wanted to try out how I would do creating a trailer for something, and here are the results. Not wanting to take up TOO much hard drive space (I only have 28 gigs, and most was taken up with other stuph), I decided to simply rip the movie files from Lunar, Silver Star Story Complete. I also wanted to use Lunar because all the other Lunar vids I've seen were either low quality and/or had bad editing.
That needed to end. And so began a long and ugly legacy.
I tried as hard as I truly could to not have any spoilers in this video, espcially since it's just the trailer of the game. This part is somewhat edgy for me, because I'm very unsure if I did spoil a major plot point or not. I don't really think it's necessary for me to go on about this, but I just wanted to let you know.
Effects are simple: lots of cross dissovling, an equally large amount of the motion setup, a little ghosting, and a dash of inverted. The lip syncing factor is not highlighted for scoring because what lips move in this video were already designated with the voices. The old version of The Blue Star was more of a lesson than anything else. I learned that aspect ratios matter when it comes to source footage, and I figured out some key techniques in the motion setup.
The new remastered version is of better quality, along with some key parts configured to give a better look. Particularly the listing of the characters. Other than that, most of it is pretty much the same, but I still recommend taking a gander at it.
As always, your thoughts on my videos are greatly appreciated.
