Can't ask for much more.

I'm in the trailer. Hybrid-Halo is in the trailer. And there is some sorta great action film going on too.

Fabtastic!

I'd change one thing though, that 'towel' shot - make it last just a bit longer..... wink

Hehe... a classic...first it was "WHY CAN HE DO THIS" now the new hit line from Marco is "it's SHOWTIME gentlemen" biggrin

sehr guter trailer !!! Nur die auto explosions szene hat mir nicht so gefallen (zu extrem, nicht realistisch genug) ...und ich weiß nicht, ich find die stimme von nightcast hat nicht wirklich eine Tiefe...schaut/klingt einfach nicht richtig meiner Meinung nach....aber jeder hat seine eigene intepretation !!!

trotzdem 5/5 wink

cheers,
d.

I love it! Great work... you still know my question from the vfx-forum. ( www.vfx-forum.de ). Did you do all effects with Fxhome Software?

Greetz Michi or for you: michibohne

Thanks everyone!


An der Auto Explosion arbeite ich sicher nochmal, die gefällt mir selber noch nicht wirklich. Hab ja noch Zeit bis zum Release. Nighty's Stimme ist wohl ähnlich wie das Kostüm und der Look eine Geschmacksfrage. Mir gefällt sie so sehr, weil sie gut zu der Figur passt. Vielleicht ändert sich ja deine Meinung, wenn du sie im Kontext vom Film siehst. smile


I use Sorensen 3 and H.264 codecs m_kim, encoded in Quicktime Pro. Gives cool results!



Hey Michi! Sorry about that, I was away today.
No, not all effects were done with FXhome software, but all the cool ones. wink
The 3D effects were done with Cinema4D, the compositing stuff and some of the selective grading was done in VisionLabHD.

ja, wie gesagt,... jeder hat seine eigene intepretation wink
find ich eh gut, dass du beinhart bei deinem style bleibst biggrin

und das mim auto...jap..hast eh noch genug zeit...aber du benutzt den selben "explosions" style wie beim helicopter...wo die Teile zu extrem weggeschleudert werden...schwer zu erklären...aber ich würds einfach etwas anders machen ^^ biggrin

also dann mein schweizer kamerade...viel glück noch, arbeite noch hart...wink

servas,

Mostly, when I see trailers as good as this, I get a small erection... =p

But this was (erection*43)³
As you can see, this was so good I could only describe it with math, and not words.

Might have to visit Switzerland when it's out...
