Title: SGU teaser trailer 01
Post by: niteme on June 21, 2009, 06:18:24 AM
SGU Video Teaser 01 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6hfxXxQr1n0&feature=channel_page#lq-lq2-hq-vhq)

Well there is no sound in space folks, hate to remind you.  I know a lot of people that have that same style of animation you guys used.  Why not the camera whizzing very close to planets and stars, you'll be able to realistically get sound in.  Sure the volumetric lighting will be many minutes, if not hours per frame, but I think will be a nice touch.

Also, instead of having that outline go in a counterclockwise fashion, why not add another going clockwise.  Sound there will be acceptable.  Not just the spooky music.  But 17 seconds to wait to see your name....sigh.  Now throw in some more stuff that is in the universe besides empty space and I might not blow past the intro each time. 

I could probably help you guys out since I'm into 3d animation, but since you stopped talking to me, and also there some pricks on the forum here... have fun.  I'm sure there are others out of the 60,000+

I saw this video days ago, but damn 8 months for a new video.  Sigh or slacking, I can't choose which. 

Last tip: Check out Penn Says, Crackles opening is 7 seconds and another following it which is just over 4, which is a total of just over 11 seconds.

There's a paranormal entity dancing around like a Ghostbuster on crack and you're worried that they didn't correctly depict the vacuum of space? Gee, I wonder why they don't talk to you anymore.  ::)
