This is what comes out when I get bored on a free afternoon... smile

It's a short Actionmovie, basically me fighting.... myself... a couple of times and in almost any possible way. I really enjoyed this one and it contains many AlamDV effects in a hopefully new way... smile)

Hope you have as much fun watching the video as I had shooting and editing it... smile

Greetings to all AlamDVers,
Sollthar

Well, I loved this! Entertaining all the way through. The fight scenes were not too long, and what there was, worked very well! Good use of Post Motion too. Tech queston tho. It looks like u took the first frame of u hitting the garage door, cut you from the frame and added motion blur to an empty backplate of the scene, and then added the two together..am i right?
Good work!

Yes, I just jumped against that wall (almost bracking it, i weight 110 kilos you know) :)))
Than I took the first frame of me touching the wall and cut myself out. using Photoshop, I pasted myself into a clean background and added motion blur (real important to make things look good, but I don't think I need to tell you that) :)

Quite an impressive piece!! I love the integration of effects in the sequence.

My only gripes are a couple of the cam angles have the sun in them. And also there's some continuity issues (I thought the swoard was dropped... the clones just 'died' after being shot??)

HOWVER, your TALENT for editing this and presenting it as a followable story and the general presentation all together MORE then makes up for minor defects.

Even more so, the piece has a very decent flow to it, and impressive action. (one can easialy make the distinction between the bad guy and the good guy -- good acting!!)

I must say, I'm very impressed with this clip, and I hope to see more like it! (Oh, BTW... nice chroma key on the truck!-clever!)

Keep up the good work!

Sollthar I actually enjoyed the film a lot. I was torn between voting 3 or 4 stars. I decided on 3 because I think that I tend to be harsher on your films then on others. This film was very good, the effects where great and the storyline wasn’t bad. The biggest thing was the fight scene by the truck. Before “You” (the red eyed one) came over, you were fighting the two bad u’s. (ok that’s hard to explain) any way the good you swung to hit the bad you and the good you wasn’t even close, but the bad you got hit anyway. I know its hard to shoot yourself on doing both characters especially when they are that close so kudos for even doing it.

Awesome movie! How did you manage the scenes when you were fighting yourself? Did you chroma key it or rotoscope? Or did you use some simple process? I've "cloned" people using final cut pro with basic mattes, but nothing like this where the "clones" could ineract.

Hi MC!

Vielen Dank! Das freut mich sehr! :)

Also der Film war innerhalb eines nNachmittags gedreht und auch fertig bearbeitet. Und gearbeitet habe ich in der Standardauflösung 720x576, allerdings von Anfang an mit 10 fps, da ich wusste, das wird bloss ein kleiner desktopmovie - das sparte eine Menge an Zeit... :)

Great use of effects. The tumbling 4x4 is particularly clever, I assumed it was *really* good CG until I checked your website :)

What really makes the film though is your acting, which is very good indeed. I know there's only a few lines, but it's enough to illustrate the main character's confusion and panic, and makes the bad guy convincingly malicious.

Good stuff. I must try to one-up it as soon as I get a new DV cam :)

Well i have now watched it.

great fx, i liked the last bit where the bad guys breaks up, but the camera was zooming in slowly. great.

camera work was perfect and sound was good.

I did not like the guys face, so when i saw more, i hated this film.

i gave 1 vote.

I thought I posted a comment on this movie before, but I guess I didn't.
Well I love it, thats why I gave it a 5. The use of special effects was brilliant. Very well shot, especialy as you did it on your own. Loved the use of bluescreen masking (How come mine always looks so fake?)
Looked very seamless couldn't see a join line at all. Acting was pretty cool too. Also liked the line "I am you. Well. I look like you"
Very cool. I also recently saw "Wild Danger" and even though I couldn't understand a word of it 9Cos it's not in English) I really liked it. Again. Brilliantly shot. Excellent sound, and good use of music to build tension.

Can't wait to see more Sollthar films.

I have been looking at many of your movies they are all visualy stunning a beutiful work of art but one thing is missing which makes your movies seem hollow… the sound i watched "The Test" again and noticed you take sound effects from any nook and cranny of games or existing movie some are not that great like when you clashed sword with your self the sound was from warcraft two from the sound of the foot men sure it is alright but some times it doesn't always fit the sene like the laser blasts from escape velocity nova just didn't seen quite right i mean if you really like doing this maybe you could try creating your own sound effects it would make you movies ALOT better.

Wow... I'm impressed! :)
You're right, the sounds really are from Warcraft2...

I have a pretty limited archive of soundeffects wich I try to increase every day... In my usual movies (such as Wild Danger, Turicon etc) we usually create our own samples or combine some, but in the shorter Webmovies I just use some of the archive... I think the "clang" sound isn't too bad, but it's sure if you realize where it's from than it starts sounding odd...

Had the same feeling in the cinema once, when they were using one of the artbeats-explosions I had too... It just looked strange to me... :)

I was invloved in the film M&J2 (the music), and had to know what made "The Test" highly rated, pipping us to number 1 spot.

Anyway, Tarn played me the movie and I was blown away.

I had to log on straight away and give this film a well deserved 5/5

The use of the toy car was genius, but how on earth did you synchronise the fight scene with yourself so the swards clashed?!

Anyway, congratulations cant wait to see a few more of your films

You know making your own sound effects isn't as hard as it seems… like you know the pod racer sene from the Phantom Menace that wasn't anything special was siply record from a race track in northern California where the mountains were really close to it so it made that eco "booming" sound with sebulbas pod racer the chirping sounds of those ugly insect bird thing was a mix of penguin and fruit bad calls. You just have to be creative and have a little equipment and you can get for cheap from firewire based Mark of the Unicon systems for under 700$ you can look at this more from www.motu.com there programs and equipment work very well and it is a very good investment. There is always protools too but they tend to cost more money.

Yeah... I admit it... I have a twin brother... :)

Actually, I had to adjust the movement of both fighters later in Premiere to make them match, if you watch closely you see them jump a little.


Yes, you're right. Making your own sfx isn't too difficult. And it's fun too. Maybe I'm gonna do that for my next movie... Ah, I'm definately gonna do that for my next movie... :)

Thank you all very much for the feedback!

Excellent short clip. The effects were really awesome. I loved the CGI car and the 'clones' of yourself were really well polished off. Well done. My only criticism is that the first punch of the film looks about a foot away from making contact with the clone, but otherwise the film amazes me.

I particuarly liked the "evil voice" applied to the red-eyed clone. How did you do that!!!?

Youßre absolutely right... It really hurts me seeing that too... I was trying to adjust it somehow, but I couldnßt find a way to do it... I would have definately reshoot that scene if it were for a real film of mine. But as it was just a "I feel bored" Video, I let it be like that... Shouldhave redone it anyways... sad

The car wasn´t actually CGI.It was a little toy. I wish I´d be that good in CGI. smile

The voice was altered using a freewre soft called "amazing slow downer". It´s Mac only as I have seen,but I´m sure there is matching software for the PC too.

Hats off to yo - class film however how did you create the clones of you that was really impressive and i also thought that the Car was CGI coz it had that plasticy look to it and it didn't cast a shadow on the ground - not a criticism though - but after reading your reply it now makes sense why it looked the way it did very cool though.

Also i thought the voice was great simple to do i know but still very humourous

Actully "toyPYROmachine" i think that effect makes it look better!... if not, it would look stiff. Many of marko's movies have this effect smile (not many, but The legend of Sollthar has it)

Nicely done... though the zooming in was totally hurting my eyes, so was the blurriness of the film. If these were to be fixed, then maybe I would give a higher score. To me, part of making a good film is making it not hurt my eyes. cool rolleyes tard Hah!

Interesting effects. I don't know why people in this forum are saying, "The sound effects aren't that hard to do." Well, duh! Fools! Any voice editor can slow down or make the sound faster, thus making it sound cool or weird, depending on your voice, or how you want it to sound.

I've seen the other one that you made, with the skeleton fighting and you getting blown up in the end. That... was okay, but not that great. In any case, good job, and keep trying. You're getting there. wink cool

Sollthar-

I've been around for a while here, but not very vocal in the boards and the cinema, but I must say that the stuff you do is really top notch. I visited your website and viewed all your tutorials. Thanks so much for those! They gave me ideas for my own projects. This first test just blew me away with the cloning effects, the compositing- everything just had me going..." how the heck did he do that?" Anyways, definitely deserving of a 5.

Later- Jeremy

That was better than I remember it. The effects where amazing, real high budget lookin stuff. The muzzle flashes were great, the blood hits were good and that flying van was fantastic. Two things though the bit when you get punched by you and fly into the air in slomo. The bit when you hit the wall was good, it was the bit before it. Secondly the kicking the gun up and catching it didn't look good. Did you use reversed footage on that? Other than that it was great. The effects were way better than what I could do, but I intend to beat you on film making skills. biggrin You have been warned. (Unfortuneatly the films are reviewed for their effects, so I'm gonna do pretty badly when it come down to it) biggrin

Yeah, the punchingpart was awfully done - I made somemistakes with the referencepoint for the morphing I guess....

You´re right, most films get rated for the effects. Otherwise Rose should be higher than the test... hmm.. no... actually the effects there are 100times more complicated than the ones of the test, so that can´t be it either... smile

Love the final power punch!! Especially how you were slammed into the door! Seen lots of this type effect in Smallville but always wanted to create it - thanks for your tutorials! Hpe I can do something as good as this one day... please do some more tutorials soon!!!

I guess shooting in daylight helps your blue screen work in photoshop - but what do you do to stop the obvious edge I get when I try and bluescreen via photoshop? ??

Hey! Thanks!

Hmm... You need to paint very smoothly and chose exactlythe right color, then you shouldn't get any edges.

Or otherwise combine directly in Photoshop. Is faster and works better for short clips only though.

the alam effects are quite amazing, although some do look a bit tacky. I gave it a 3 because the movie never really seemed to get me going. it was kind of like, "Oh, that was a nice alam effect, so was that one, and that one was pretty good too." but never like "I wonder what's gonna happen next!" so if I am rating this in terms of a demonstration for alamdv, I would give it a 4.5 or a 5, but in terms of a film (or short-film), I gave it a 3, but I would have given it 3.5 of that was an option.

when duplicating yourself, how do you get the camera move?

the slow zooming in...is it just film it still, then in like AE or soemthing slowly zoom in on the vid?

i liked the movie - not loved - but liked. i LOVED the special effects though, they were incredible. and the greenscreening (or bluescreening) was done very well. it was not the plot that intrigued me so much but it was the effects. i was constantly thinking, "i wonder what effect he is gonna use next?" the only thing you should work on is the ending, it's a bit weird how the movie just suddenly stops. everything else is great. i gave it a 4. also, i noticed that your URL is .ch, where in switzerland do you live because i live there too.

You know, the both "test" movies I made when I was bored. Both of them. They are videos I make when I got nothing to do. And currently, I have a lot of things to do so that I don't think I'll do one in the close future.
I really can't tell. I don't plan those.
When there comes a day when I got nothing better to do, than I will most probably do another test... smile

I kinda got to this movie pretty late, so please excuse me.

First: The effects were AWESOME. Definitly major motion picture quality. I have a few complaints though. The beginning and ending have no transition. The music just starts and you are thrown right into the action. Not a big complaint, just something that bothered me. Is the protangonist transported into the scene, and why? The truck bounces a little weird-like on the second shot of it tipping.

Majorly cool, I liked it super.

Having watched 'The test', I feel both speechless, and scared. Scared of NOTHING! The film takes on a life of its own, and the characters really leap off the screen and into our blackened hearts. The nine mens morris effect certainly had me screaming, (screaming for more!) and the swordsmiths challenge had me teetering on the edge of my desk! My only gripe is that the penny never really dropped for me concerning where these men are going, are they dying, being banished, or something entirely more sinister? I hate to be the one to say it, but thats a pretty expensive penny. Other than that, top class material. Go to the top of the class, please, and put on a large hat, preferably one which resembles a crown, (or failing that, a large crown) so as all may know that you reign king of the top-class!

Been meaning to comment on this film b4. Great entertainment & some very good compositing & effects. It's what filmmaking is all about, complete with Joseph Campbell/Freudian subtext - Hero's Journey & fighting yourself & your subconscious//or am I reading to much into it?!

Good luck with your forthcoming projects

I have to say this movie was pretty impressive. I am new to this and I find what you did pretty good considering you did this at home (I am guessing). I would like to know what programs you used to make this feature. I can see the ALAMDV2 functions but how did you do the partial slow motion scenes, the speed up scene, the duplication of yourself, and the truck throw? I am only a novice here and need to hear from the masters! Any info you can give would be great! JUH from Dallas, Texas

Why so many zooms?

15 zooms in under 1:30 is very distracting. Static shots would have been much easier to watch. Over all I give it a 3 out of 5 stars.

great movie...i read all the tutorials for the effects and the cloning...but how did you get the shots of the clones when the camera is zooming in slowly? like when i do clones the camera has to be still or else it doesnt work out...did u film each clone and zoom in the exact same speed each time? or did u put all the clones into the movie and then just zoom in on the entire clip? please i would like to know because im making a clone war and i need to zoom in slowly like that on certain scenes with lots of clones on screen thanks

He kept the original clip still, then did a fake zoom later. With Premiere, you can do this by going to the clip and Right Click > Video Options > Motion. Pretty simple, yet effective effect if you ask me biggrin

Great movie I loved it all. But is it just me, or does when the "Super-Bad-Evil-Monstor-Demon" get zapped to earth, he is next to the white van, looking at the house, and the regular guy is facing the white van, back to the house, but iun the next shot, they have switched places. Look carefully, tell me if im wrong. Otherwise EXCELLENT, I loved it. 5 stars.

Not saying he did but the voice could have been changed with GoldWave.
Unless there is a method I don't know about he could have been talking really fast and then slowed it down thus getting a low pitch, this could be used to make you sound older or abnormal in this case.
And you can distort it in many ways like flanging, mechanizing, and echoing.

Marco,

Hello. I visited your site and believe that you hand paint every frame in Photoshop. Why? That is extremely time consuming. I did it once for an effect.

How long did it take to edit The Test? With hand painting each frame it seems like it would take forever. Though, the end result is spectacular. Excellent job.

How do you keep consistency in the mask from one frame to another?

The whole thing took me an afternoon, that includes shooting and editing.

After doing that much rotoscoping as I have done up to now, you get used to it and begin to do it pretty fast and still exact. Of course, today I'd use Chromanators Garbage Mattes for it. smile

k i need some help i want to get a program for rotoscoping and stuff right? but whats the best between adobe after effects, alam dv and effects lab? it needs to include losing limbs (like in the ''blast off limbs'' test), rotoscoping lightsabers, blasters, force effects, lightning....and a few other things. also i need to decide whether i should get it for my mac (which is kinda slow and i dont really trust) or my friend's windows (which is really fast). but its my camera were using, and my idea and everything but my comp's not that good. what should i do?? i really need some positive answers for this

They're not expensive compared to what an average FX software costs (especially compared to AE).

If you want to do such things, you will have to invest money. Or do it all practical with life-fx, wich will also costs money.

To answer fleller's question, no the movie did not make $429,000. This is just how they do it here at the new FXHome to show how many people has downloaded it.

He has a "making of" tutorial series at his site: http://nccinema.ch , he uses very difficult methods before FXHome had Chromanator or CompositeLab, instead of doing his method where he paints the frame blue, you can use a garbage matte.

Hahaha. The Test is way more enjoyable than Art of Saber. I mean, black shirts, black pants, sunglasses, and lightsabers? Come on... Star Wars Fanfilms are overdone; people need to come up with their own ideas and stop leeching from the ever-so-popular series.

Well bearing in mind this movie was added to this website in 2002, it could only have been done with AlamDV - Effectslab's younger retarded brother.

EffectsLab replaced AlamDV several years ago. AlamDV is no longer available or supported.

If Sollthar were to remake this now, i suspect the results would be ever better.

I don't care what you did it with or or how old it is. I think it's probably the best thing I've seen done with these products. The web version resolution obviously isn't great, but from what I can see, it's pretty dang good. Better than allot of the stuff I see on Sci Fi channel NOW. Great job.

Amazing film. I have never made an amazing film with decent effects in before but I haven't had my camcorder for long.
Those effects were brilliant. I bet you read Digital Video. You are very artistic in your films the way you put it all together so well and use very good techniques eg. perspective with the truck. That is clever.
I like the way you make the music yourself as well. How do you do that? Do you do it with a music composing software. I have flexi music composer but on that I couldn't do anything like what you do. Anyway, that was brilliant! Keep it up!
I want a copy of NightCast so badly but they are all sold out. Damn!

Hey may i ask what kind of programs did you use for this short movie. I really apreciate how you did it, it looks great. How did you make the scene with the bullet and what porgrams did you use for that?
