Imagine this: you are playing the single-player mode in fast forward. Without sound. Then you've got some idea of what this video is like. It's like he filmed every cutscene in the game, set them into fast foward, and set them to music. As a result, the video doesn't fit with the music at all, it's nearly nauseating how fast the people move at some points (like when Jaden rolls to avoid Alora's blaster bolt), and it's just plain uncreative. How hard is it to film a bunch of cutscenes and overlay Limp Bizkit over it? I imagine the only exciting part about this video would be the song, if you're a Limp Bizkit fan (which I'm not).
I didn't mention it's not all cutscenes. There are certain areas where there is "live action" (as opposed to cutscene) dueling. However you can still see server messages scrolling across the top, since the author obviously didn't turn them off like he should have, and it's really just a bunch of random hack-and-slash. And then, of course, at the end, Jaden uses melee to beat the crud out of Rosh. A totally random scene, to be sure. Not as random as the one directly after it, though. Trust me on that one.
Work on the following, please: -Fix jerky filming technique -Get an idea before you film - don't film random stuff like cutscenes -Choose appropriate music -Compress your videos more - 320x240 would probably be adequate for a music video
*********************************** A Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy Video *********************************** TITLE: The Story about Jaden and Rosh (music video) AUTHOR: [DragoN].Warbird* E-MAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org WEBSITE: http://www.indiglo.boo.pl FILENAME: The Story about Jaden and Rosh (music video).avi FILESIZE: 34,2 MB DATE RELEASED: 20 November 2005 CREDITS: Raven Software/LucasArts, Lucasfilm (last scene), Limp Bizkit (music -> "My Way") INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Just unpack the archive and run the file. (Important! Since it's a XviD file I recommend to use Windows Media Player Classic or just select START->RUN and type mplayer2). DESCRIPTION: Music video presenting in great shortcut the whole story about Jaden and Rosh learning ways of the Force (light side version). BUGS: Hmmm let me think... no wait! I need to think! Hmmmmm, mmmmm, mmmemoemmmmm, no? :P PROGRAMS USED: Quake Video Maker 1.4.2, Audacity 1.2.3, Camtasia Studio 1.1.1 and obviously, the best MS Paint :) COMMENTS: Requirments: XviD 1.0.3 (Koepi's is the most efficient, but CelticDruid's is also a good one) or greater (if available). Tip: For improved video quality go to 'Configure Decoder' in your Menu Start shortcuts and check 'Deblocking (Y)' and 'Deblocking (UV)' (set them to on). Only do this if you have a decent comp. (I don't), otherwise you'll be experiencing some serious slowdowns (video faster than sound and vice versa). Don't check 'film effect' option!
