This is the final trailer for AlamDV2. This trailer is a mix of several scenes from some popular films and TV shows that we recreated. The individual scenes will be posted soon. The trailer shows what is possible with the current version of AlamDV2. I expect you may see something new once the final version v2.1 is completed.

It really is worth downloading the High Quality version as it allows you to see the amazing quality possible with AlamDV2.

YET AGAIN, I'm commenting on the votes here. It seems that all the best films on this site have a high amount of negative votes. Is there a vote fix here, or is this something that happens on this site for films that are above a certain quality?

Some may not appreciate a really good movie :)

I have just redone some of my votes and try to justify them if possible :)
So I really like this one. And I do not like it because it shows some cool effects or because it's made by you guys, but because its just very well filmed, editied and lighted.
I still keep to these things! :)

Although the work is pretty well done, I thought that lifting scenes from films and duplicating them was lame (as well as leaving yourself open to possible litigation). If you're creative enough to come up with this program you're creative enough to write your own material.

Quick question:
How was this move compressed? The quality is pretty good for Quicktime.

i think the idea was to show that ALAMDV" can do blockbuster special effects, at such a cheap price, and with just a few clicks of the button, rather than doign what massive film companies do...

It was supposed to be a look back at films. eek Litigation? LOL! Come on! Sorry but... crazy

On topic, I loved this trailer. They are very hard to make and this was good. I still play it now and again!

If this is supposed to be a trailer to be used in advertising AlamDV then litigation would be a definite possibilty. If it's just another fan film then don't sweat it. But I had the impression it was to be used for ads.

From the start I thought that this trailer as well as the teaser that preceeded it was eye candy for us ALAMADV1 users to kind of kick off the new version tard

I do not think it was ever intended as an add for tV or magazines. This is just mega fan film that covers several popular sci-fi-ish flicks on the big and small screens.

Beyond that it is a really well done digital piece cool One of my favorites. IT does what the "home defense" flick did for ALAMDV1. It shows us some of the really cool effects possible with the application.

my 2 Cents...

Some very nice shots. The smoke trail on the bullet-time bullet is a bit lame though. Can't you add a lens particle that distorts the footage behind it? That would make that shot WAY better, and could also be used for explosion shockwaves, Predator-style invisibility effects, and such like.

Also, the ghostbusters and X-men shots look a bit poor because they're all exactly face-on, which is a terribly dull angle. Storm, on the other hand, looks FANTASTIC :)

I thought this was a super-cool flick, and was pretty much the AlamDV seller for me. I reccommend you post this somewhere, maybe in the 'Buy AlamDV' section? Good work.

This is definitely one of the clips that got me to buy AlamDV in the first place.

The production quality is great on this clip. The editing is really slick, too. I would have to say that this clip is what enticed me to buy AlamDV. I still like to refer to it on occasion when using an effect for the first time.

Pretty good demo!

As far as legal shmegal garbage - I'd suggest you research Title 17 esp. Sec 107, Sec 110, Sec 113.. Aww, heck, Title 17 inclusive.

Personally - I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.

Further, a C&D will always preceed any litigation.

And note: Not a lawyer. And clearly - neither are you. I'm sure they can arrange their own legal advice.

Heh. AlamDV2 is the outdated predecessor to Effectslab Lite, which is the outdated predecessor of Effectslab Pro.

You guys both have an application far more advanced with everything AlamDV2, the double-predecessor of your owned program, had already. smile
